Abbas ibn Abd al-Muttalib
|Abbas ibn Abd al-Muttalib|
|Buried||Jannat ul Baqi|
|Spouse||Lubaba bint al-Harith|
Abbas was a half-brother of Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) father. He was married to Lubabah bint al-Harith who was one of the earliest women to accept Islam. Abbas had kept his conversion to Islam hidden and only openly declared it after the conquest of Makkah. He was a person who exhibited great kindness towards his relatives and thus found himself to be an object of praise and commendation of the noble Prophet, who lauded him by saying “Abbas Ibn 'Abdul Muttalib is the most generous and benevolent towards his relatives from amongst all the Quraish.”
He is buried in the graveyard of Baqi in the city of Medina, Saudi Arabia.
