ABDULLAH:The father of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)

ABDULLAH:

The father of our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). His mother was Fatimah,
daughter of Amr bin Aidh bin Imran bin Makhzum bin Yaqdha bin Murra.
Abdullah was the smartest of Abdul-Muttalibs sons, the chastest and the most loved. He was also the son
whom the divination arrows pointed at to be slaughtered as a sacrifice to Al-Kabah. When
Abdul-Muttalib had ten sons and they reached maturity, he divulged to them his secret vow{ the vow isAbdul-Muttalib made a solemn vow
to sacrifice one of his adult children to Al-Kabah if he had ten}
in which they silently and obediently acquiesced. Their names were written on divination
arrows and given to the guardian of their most beloved goddess, Hubal. The arrows were
shuffled and drawn. An arrow showed that it was Abdullah to be sacrificed. Abdul-Muttalib
then took the boy to Al-Kabah with a razor to slaughter the boy. Quraish, his uncles from
Makhzum tribe and his brother Abu Talib, however, tried to dissuade him from
consummating his purpose. He then sought their advice as regards his vow. They suggested
that he summon a she-diviner to judge whereabout. She ordered that the divination arrows
should be drawn with respect to Abdullah as well as ten camels. She added that drawing the
lots should be repeated with ten more camels every time the arrow showed Abdullah. The
operation was thus repeated until the number of the camels amounted to one hundred. At
this point the arrow showed the camels, consequently they were all slaughtered (to the
satisfaction of Hubal) instead of his son. The slaughtered camels were left for anyone to eat
from, human or animal.
· This incident produced a change in the amount of blood-money usually accepted in
Arabia. It had been ten camels, but after this event it was increased to a hundred. Islam,
later on, approved of this. Another thing closely relevant to the above issue goes to the
effect that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) once said:

I AM THE OFFSPRING OF THE SLAUGHTERED TWO, MEANING ISMAEL [ALAIHIS SALAM] AND ABDULLAH.

Abdul-Muttalib chose Amina, daughter of Wahab bin Abd Munaf bin Zahra bin Kilab, as a wife for
his son, Abdullah. She thus, in the light of this ancestral lineage, stood eminent in respect of
nobility of position and descent. Her father was the chief of Bani Zahra to whom great honour was
attributed. They were married in Makkah, and soon after Abdullah was sent by his father to buy
dates in Madinah where he died. In another version, Abdullah went to Syria on a trade journey and
died in Madinah on his way back. He was buried in the house of An-Nabigha Al-Judi. He was twentyfive
years old when he died.His death was two months before the birth of
Muhammad [SALLALLAHU ALAIHI WASALLAM].
Abdullah left very little wealth five camels, a small number of goats, a she-servant, called
Barakah Umm Aiman who would later serve as the Prophets nursemaid.
