She was born in Mecca, the daughter of Abdulmuttalib ibn Hashim and Fatimah bint Amr al-Makhzumiya.[1][2]

Her first husband was Abdulasad ibn Hilal,[3] a member of the Makhzum clan of the Quraysh. Their son was Abdullah, later known as Abu Salama.[4]

Her second husband was Abu Ruhm ibn Abduluzza from the Amir ibn Luayy clan of the Quraysh. Their son was Abu Sabra.[5]

It is not recorded that Barrah ever became a Muslim.[6]
