Who is Ben Baller's wife

Bin Laden family secret: Osama's wives, sons, daughters - who is who in the bin Laden?

This family has many secrets, but it is arguably the greatest of them.

Since the death of Osama bin Laden on the night of May 2nd, rumors and myths have grown up about the women, the sons and daughters of the terrorist devil. Who is who? And above all: who is where?

The investigators are not only targeting the wives, but above all one person: Osama bin Laden's son Hamza. He is said to be around 19 years old and to have lived in Abbottabad with his (half) brother Khalid, who was shot by the US soldiers on May 2nd. The Daily Mail speculates that he managed to escape from the police.

Hamza, of whom there is only one photo that shows him as a ten-year-old, is known as the "Crown Prince of Terror".



Osama bin Laden is said to have married six times. His youngest and last wife, the Yemeni Amal Ahmed al-Sadah (29), stayed with him in the terror hiding place in Abbottabad until the end. The investigators are particularly interested in her, she should have the most important information about the day-to-day life of the al-Qaida chief.

But what about the other women?

At first it was said that in addition to Amal Ahmed al-Sadah, there were two other wives on the site in Abbottabad. "CNN" identified the women as Khairiah Sabar and Siham Sabar. Two Saudi Arabians who hid with bin Laden in the caves of Afghanistan after September 11, 2001.

But is that true?

Bin Laden's son Omar bin Laden claims that Khairiah Sabar sought refuge in Iran with her children several years ago. There she would be under house arrest. It was said of Siham Saber that she and her children were also killed in a US air strike several years ago in Afghanistan.

If that's true, the question remains: Who are the two women who were arrested with Amal Ahmed al-Sadah in Abbottabad?

Some Pakistani observers suspect that it could be a daughter of bin Laden and a nurse or daughter-in-law.


Bin Laden celebrated his first wedding in 1974 at the tender age of 17. His beautiful bride, the Syrian Najwa Ghanem, was the daughter of a maternal uncle. She was only 15 years old at the time. But in a book that she later wrote with her son Omar, she emphasizes that it was not a forced marriage.

She liked the cousin with the soft voice, whom she knew from childhood, very much. Ghanem left Afghanistan shortly before the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. She and some of her children settled in the Syrian city of Latakia. A few months ago she moved to Qatar from Syria.

Bin Laden's second wife, Khadijah Sharif, whom he married in 1983, is said to have left him during his time in Sudan because she did not like the hard life at his side. She returned to her native Saudi Arabia. The marriage ended in divorce.

Khairiah and Siham Saber, who bin Laden married in 1985 and 1987, are also from Saudi Arabia. According to bin Laden biographers, Khairiah studied. She is said to have had several miscarriages and therefore - in contrast to the other wives - only gave birth to one child, the son Hamsa. The biographers disagree on whether she is seven or nine years older than bin Laden.

Little is known about the fourth wife Siham. She is said to have given birth to four children to bin Laden.

Before the extended family moved from Sudan to Afghanistan, bin Laden married a fifth time - that was only possible after the divorce from Khadijah Sharif, because according to Islamic law a man cannot have more than four wives at the same time.

However, this marriage is said not to have been consummated and to have been annulled after a few hours - why is not known.

For the sixth and last time, Bin Laden celebrated his wedding in 2000. He married Amal Ahmed al-Sadah. The Yemeni woman who was referred to him by a Yemeni extremist was still a teenager when she married the 43-year-old terrorist.


It could be 15, 20, or even more. Nobody knows exactly how many sons Osama bin Laden actually has. Above all, one person is known: Omar bin Laden (30).

The scrap dealer is the fourth oldest son of the terror boss. He left Afghanistan, went to Qatar, is said to also live in London. He is married to a British woman 25 years his senior.

The couple hit the headlines for hiring a surrogate mother in the UK. Omar bin Laden had turned away from his father years ago and sharply criticized him for his life as a terrorist. But now he wrote an open letter to Barack Obama, accusing him of his father's death.

Other sons: Ahmed, Riyadh, Ibrahim, Hamza, Mohammed and Saad. The son Khalid bin Laden is said to have been killed at the US command in Abbottabad. The son Abdallah is supposed to run an advertising agency in Saudi Arabia.


How many daughters did the terror boss bring into the world? That is also not known. The eldest daughter is said to be called Fatima. The name Samina is still known.

One of the daughters is said to be married to Mullah Omar, the one-eyed leader of the Afghan Taliban. He is also being hunted by US investigators.
