Halah married Abdul-Muttalib the same day as sister Aminah bint Wahb ibn Abd Manaf ibn Zuhrah, the mother of the Islamic prophet Muhammad married Abdullah ibn Abdul-Muttalib.[1]

She was the mother of Hamza, Safiyyah, al-Muqawwim and Ḥajl. 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 foster-brother by Thuwaybah, the freed slave girl of Abu Lahab.[citation needed] Hamza and Muhammad were also brothers-in-law, as Hamza's wife Salma bint Umays was a half-sister of Maymunah, a wife of Muhammad. Another sister, Umm Fadl, was married to ‘Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, another uncle of Muhammad.

Halah's brothers included Abu Waqqas (father of Sa'd ibn Abi Waqqas) and Naufal.
