Abu Talib (a.s.), born on 29 Shawwal supported the Holy Prophet of Islam (saws.) in all the difficult situations, passed away on 26th Rajab, (7 Ramadhan some narration) three years before the Hijrah .
The Prophet (saws) was deeply grieved and named this year as "The Year of Sadness".
Prophet Muhammad (saw) was 8 years of age when his grandfather Abdul-MutTalib (a.s.) died. So, his uncle, Abu-Talib (a.s.) took care of him.
Abu-Talib's (a.s.) name was Abdu-Munaf. His mother's name was Fatima bint Amr. She belonged to Bani-Makhzum. Abu-Talib (a.s.) was named Shaikh al-Bat-ha. Prophet Muhammad (saws) grew up in the household of his uncle.
