IV. Muhammad did his own household chores and helped with housework, such as preparing
food, sewing clothes and repairing shoes. Muhammad is also said to have had
accustomed his wives to dialogue; he listened to their advice, and the wives debated and
even argued with him.[64][65][66]
V. Khadijah is said to have borne Muhammad four daughters (Ruqayyah bint Muhammad,
Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad, Zainab bint Muhammad, Fatimah Zahra) and two sons
(Abd-Allah ibn Muhammad and Qasim ibn Muhammad) who both died in childhood. All
except two of his daughters, Fatimah and Zainab, died before him.[67] Shi'a scholars
contend that Fatimah was Muhammad's only daughter.[68] Maria al-Qibtiyya bore him a
son named Ibrahim ibn Muhammad, but the child died when he was two years old.[67]
VI. Muhammad's descendants through Fatimah are known as sharifs, syeds or sayyids. These
are honorific titles in Arabic, sharif meaning 'noble' and sayed or sayyid meaning 'lord' or
'sir'. As Muhammad's only descendants, they are respected by both Sunni and Shi'a,
though the Shi'as place much more emphasis and value on their distinction.[69]
