Source: By Adil Salahi/ Arab News/Nov.17/2011

We are speaking today about a highly distinguished woman whose sons are identified by her instead of the normal identification by their father. Afraa’ belonged to Madinah where she married Al-Harith ibn Rifa’ah from the Najjar clan of the Khazraj. She gave him three sons: Mu'adh, Mu’awwidh and Awf. These three are always known by their mother. We say Mu'adh ibn Afraa’ and Awf ibn Afraa’. When she was divorced she went to Makkah where she married Al-Bukayr ibn Abd Yaleel, giving him four sons: Aqil, Khalid, Iyas and Amir. All four embraced Islam in its early days and were among the Muhajireen when the Muslims of Makkah immigrated.
