Kindly confirm if Sayyidatuna Zaynab (radiyallahu ‘anha) the daughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) had two children?
The Biographers of Sahabah mention that Sayyidatuna Zaynab (radiyallahu ‘anha) bore two children of Abul ‘As ibn Rabi’, ‘Ali and Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anhuma)
‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) passed away before reaching puberty and Umamah (radiyallahu ‘anha) lived on until she married Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) after the demise of Sayyidatuna Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha).

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
