When did Umm Kulthum, who was the daughter of the Messenger of Allah and wife of Hz. Uthman, pass away?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

9th year of the Migration

Umm Kulthum, who was the daughter of the Prophet and Hazrat Uthman’s wife, died in the 9th year of the Migration. (Ibn Hajar, al-Isaba, Vol. 4, p. 489.)

After she was washed and enshrouded, her janazah prayer was led by the Prophet himself.(Ibn Sa’d, Tabaqat, Vol. 8, p. 38-39.)

After she was buried, he sat by the grave for a while. Meanwhile, some tears started to roll down his face. Umm Kulthum was the second youngest daughter of the Prophet; Fatima was the youngest. Umm Kulthum became a Muslim when her mother, Khadija, became a Muslim.

Hazrat Uthman had no children from Umm Kulthum.(Ibn Sa’d, ibid, Vol. 8, p. 37-38.)
