Question

how many brothers and sisters had holy prophet

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

As far as we know, the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) did not have brothers and sisters from the same father and mother, but he had foster brothers and sisters among whom are:

Abu Salamah ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Abd Al-Asad and Hamza ibn ‘Abd Al-Muttalib  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  them and they were suckled by Thuwaybah, a female-slave owned by Abu Lahab.

Among whom also are ‘Abdullaah ibn Al-Haarith and Unaysah bint Al-Haarith, and Juthaamah bint Al-Haarith (Ash-Shaymaa’), and Abu Sufyaan ibn Al-Haarith ibn ‘Abd Al-Muttalib, and they were suckled by Haleemah As-Sa’diyyah.  

Allaah Knows best.
