She married Hazrat Hamza ibn Abd al-Muttalib, and they had one daughter, Umama. Salma and Umama joined the emigration to Medina in 622; but after hazrat Hamza was martyr at the battle of Uhud, they returned to Mecca. Salma then married Shaddad ibn al-Had, who was from the Layth clan of the Bakr tribe, and they had one son, Abdullah.

Salma was still living in Mecca in March 629, when Rasool Allah visited to perform the minor pilgrimage. At that time, Hazrat Ali a.s took her daughter Umama away to live among the Muslims in Medina.
