Ruqayyah bint Muhammad

Ruqayyah bint Muhammad (Arabic: رقية بنت محمد‎, Ruqayyah bint Muḥammad) is regarded as the daughter of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and Khadija. Ruqayyah died in 2 AH, at the time of the battle of Badr.[1]

In Sunni traditions it is generally agreed that when Ruqayyah was sick during the Battle of Badr, her husband Uthman stayed behind to take care. She however died before Muhammad returned from battle.[2]
