Hamza b. Abd al-Muttalib

(Redirected from Hamza b. 'Abd al-Muttalib)

Ḥamza b. ʿAbd al-Muṭṭalib (Arabic: حمزة بن عبدالمطّلب) (d. 3/625) titled as "Asad Allah", "Asad Rasul Allah" and "Sayyid al-Shuhada" was the Prophet's (s) uncle and martyred in the Battle of Uhud. Even when Hamza had not still become a Muslim, he defended the Prophet (s) against the harassments of idolaters. He was one of the noble people of Quraysh and therefore when he became Muslim, Quraysh would harass the Prophet (s) less than before.
