Maria Al-Qibtiyya was an Egyptian Christian, who was sent to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as a gift from the Egyptian ruler. The year of her birth is unknown and there is a controversy about her being married to Prophet (PBUH).

In 628, the Egyptian ruler sent two slaves to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as a gift among which Prophet (PBUH) selected Maria Al-Qibtiyya. According to some narrators she remained a concubine of Prophet (PBUH), while others say that she married Prophet (PBUH) after converting to Islam. Prophet (PBUH) had a son from her named Ibrahim, who died after sixteen months of birth. Regardless of whether she was married to Prophet (PBUH) or not, she was reverend as other wives of Prophet (PBUH).
