Khattab ibn Nufayl was an Arab from the tribe of Quraish. He lived during the 6th century and was a contemporary of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. His son Umar would later become Muslim and is regarded by Sunni Muslims as the second "Rightly guided Caliph" (Arabic "Rashidun"). Thus, he was an ancestor of Sahaba.
One time, his nephew Said ibn Zayd taunted him for worshiping idols.
He had a son, Umar. His other children included a daughter, Fatimah bint al-Khattab,and a son Zayd ibn al-Khattab. The daughter married the hanif Said ibn Zayd, and later would both become Muslims. However, they hid their new faith from Khattab and Umar.[unreliable source?]
