Connection with the Umayyads
The clan acts as the parent clan to Banu Umayya sub-clan, the widely known Umayyad dynasty who ruled as the second Islamic Caliphate (661–750) established after Muhammad's death. Umayya was the adopted son of Abd Shams ibn Abd Manaf. In pre-Islamic Arabia, the clan's chieftain Utba ibn Rabi'ah's daughter Hind bint Utbah was married to Umayyad leader Abu Sufyan ibn Harb.
The clan has its descendants living today in a few cities of Central and Western Arabia.
- Utbah ibn Rabi'ah, chieftain
- Abu al-Aas ibn al-Rabee, companion of Muhammad
- Walid ibn Utbah, son of Utbah
- Hind bint Utbah, daughter of Utbah
- Abu Hudhayfah ibn Utbah, son of Utbah and companion of Muhammad
- Shaybah ibn Rabi'ah, brother of Utbah
