Natila bint Janab

Natilah bint Janab of the Tribe of Namir (Arabic: نَـتِـيْـلَـة بـنـت جـنـاب الـنـمـريّـة‎), also known by the diminutive "Nutaylah" (Arabic: نُـتَـيْـلَـة‎), was a wife of ‘Abdul-Muttalib and, by her son Al-‘Abbas, an ancestress of the ‘Abbasid Dynasty.

Her father, Janab, was the son of Kulayb ibn Malik ibn ‘Amr ibn Amir ibn Zaydmanat ibn Amir (al-Dahyan) ibn Saad ibn al-Khazraj ibn Taymallat ibn An-Namir (Arabic: الـنـمـر‎) ibn Qasit ibn Hinb ibn Afsa ibn Dumi ibn Jadila ibn Asad the son of Rabi‘ah ibn Nizar ibn Ma‘ad ibn ‘Adnan (Arabic: ربـيـعـة ابـن نـزار ابـن مـعـد ابـن عـدنـان‎).[1][2][3]

She married ‘Abdul-Muttalib in his old age, when he was concurrently married to Halah bint Wuhayb and Mumanna'a bint 'Amr. Natilah gave birth to three sons:

  • Al-‘Abbas (568-653), described as "noble, sagacious and awe-inspiring".[2][3]
  • Dirar, described as good-looking and "benevolent".[2][3]
