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.


The scholars of biography and history  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  them stated that Hamzah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him had Ya’la, ‘Aamir, and their mother was Bint Al-Millah ibn Maalik ibn ‘Ubaadah Al-Ansaariyyah from the tribe of 'Aws, and ‘Umaarah, and his mother was Khawlah bint Qays ibn Qahd Al-Ansaariyyah, and ‘Umaamah and her mother was Salmah bint ‘Umays Al-Khath’amiyyah and she was the sister of Asmaa’ bint ‘Umays who was the wife of Ja’far ibn Abi Taalib  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  him.

Among his grandchildren were ‘Umaarah, Al-Fadhl, Az-Zubayr, ‘Uqayl and Muhammad who were the children of his son Ya’la.
