Halah bint Wahb
She was the mother of Hamza, Safiyyah, al-Muqaowwim and Ḥajl/Ḥijl (Nicknamed al-Ghaidāq). Thus Hamza was related to Muhammad in several ways. He was a first cousin once removed (on his mother's side) an uncle (on his father's side) and milk brother by breast feeding from Thuwaybah, the freed slave girl of Abu Lahab, Hamza and Muhammad were also brothers-in-law, as Hamza's wife Salma was a sister of Maymunah, a wife of Muhammad. Another sister, Umm Fadl, was married to ‘Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, another uncle of Muhammad.
She has been described by some scholars as Halah bint Wuhayb (rather than Wahb) ibn 'Abd Manaf ibn Zuhrah. Her brothers included Abu Waqqas (father of Sa‘d ibn Abī Waqqāṣ) and Naufal.
