Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Haajra Prophet Abrahams wife was she firawns daughter? If not who was she?

 

Answer:

بسماللهالرحمنالرحيم

In The Name Of Allah, The Most-Merciful, The Most Kind

Ibrahim’s (A.S) first wife was Sarah (R.A). When she could not bear any more children she gifted her slave girl Hajra (R.A) to her husband Ibrahim (A.S), in hope for a second child. From Hajra He was granted the second child. Therefore she was not the pharaoh's daughter, instead, she was the slave girl of Ibrahim (A.S) first wife.
