Fadl ibn Abbas

 

Fadl ibn Abbas

Fadl was the eldest son of Al-‘Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, an uncle of the Prophet and a wealthy merchant of Mecca, and of Lubaba bint al-Harith, a sister of Muhammad's wife Maymuna. He was among those who "stood firm" at the Battle of Hunayn in 630, after which his family emigrated to Medina.
He took part in many battles of the Muslims against Europeans and Persians.
Fadl transmitted some hadiths about Muhammad, but he did not live long enough to be known as a great teacher. He died of the plague in Amwas, Syria, in 18 AH (639 CE), aged about 25.
