Sayyidina Hassan radiya Llahu ‘anhu married the daughter of Sayyidina Talhah radiya Llahu ‘anhu, Umm Ishaq bint Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah. They were blessed with three children: Fatimah, Umm ‘Abdullah, and a son who Sayyidina Hassan named Talhah.
Al Jaza’iri writes:
The mother of Hussain al Athram ibn Hassan, Talhah, and Fatimah was Umm Ishaq bint Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah al Taymi.
Mus’ab al Zubairi says:
Talhah ibn Hassanدرج: His mother is Umm Ishaq bint Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah al Taymi. His uterine sisters are Fatimah bint Hussain ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and Aminah bint ‘Abdullah bin Muhammad ibn ‘Abdul Rahman ibn Abi Bakr al Siddiq.
This is mentioned in a number of other references which we have omitted for brevity.
Sayyidina Hussain radiya Llahu ‘anhu married Umm Ishaq bint Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah al Taymi. Sayyidina Hassan radiya Llahu ‘anhu had made a bequest to his brother to marry her after his demise, which Sayyidina Hussain radiya Llahu ‘anhu fulfilled. They were blessed with a daughter Fatimah bint Hussain radiya Llahu ‘anhum.
This too is recorded in a number of references, one can but just marvel at the desire of the Ahlul Bayt radiya Llahu ‘anhum to keep this noble woman—Umm Ishaq bint Talhah—in their wedlock.
The daughter of the ‘Ali Zayn al ‘Abidin, considered to be the fourth infallible Imam by the Shia, was married to the great grandson of Sayyidina Talhah radiya Llahu ‘anhu, Nuh ibn Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah.
Mus’ab al Zubairi writes:
‘Abdah was married to Muhammad ibn Muawiyah ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Jafar for whom she bore children. After him, she wed ‘Ali ibn Hussain ibn Hassan ibn ‘Ali and they were blessed with Hassan and Muhammad. After that she was married by Nuh ibn Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah, in whose wedlock she passed away.
The grandson of Sayyidina Hassan radiya Llahu ‘anhu married Aisha bint Talhah, the daughter of Sayyidina Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah radiya Llahu ‘anhu.
‘Abbas al Qummi writes while discussing the children of Hassan al Muthallath:
He had six sons: Talhah, ‘Abbas, Hamzah, Ibrahim, ‘Abdullah, and ‘Ali. As for Talhah he left no descendants; as for ‘Abbas, his mother is Aisha bint Talhah (al Jud).
Al Qummi referred to him with the title “al Jud” which refers to none other than Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah ibn ‘Uthman ibn ‘Amr ibn Ka’b ibn Sa’d ibn Taym ibn Murrah ibn Ka’b ibn Lu’ayy ibn Ghalib ibn Fahr ibn Malik ibn Nadr ibn Kinanah. Sayyidina Talhah radiya Llahu ‘anhu was given the titles of al Khayr and al Fayyad, on account of his generosity and open-handedness.
The grandson of Amir al Mu’minin ‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu married Hafsah bint ‘Imran ibn Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah al Taymi.
Ibn Habib writes:
Hafsah bint ‘Imran ibn Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah married [first] Qasim ibn ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan, then Hashim ibn ‘Abdul Malik, then Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn ‘Uthman, then ‘Awn ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, then ‘Abdullah ibn Hassan ibn Hussain, then ‘Uthman ibn ‘Urwah ibn Zubair.
He was married to a woman from the Banu Taym.
The researcher on the book ‘Umdat al Talib of Ibn ‘Inabah writes:
Al ‘Umari says in al Majdi: Abu al Hassan ‘Ali was born and raised in Kufah. His mother and the mother of his uterine brother, Hussain, was a Taymiyyah. He passed away in Kufah, and his grave is close to Kindah…

 Nasab Quraysh, pg. 50.
 The majority of sources I have referred to list the husbands of Aisha bint Talhah as follows: ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abdul Rahman ibn Abi Bakr al Siddiq, after him Mus’ab ibn Zubair, after him ‘Umar ibn ‘Ubaidullah ibn Ma’mar ibn ‘Uthman al Taymi. However, some sources also include Hassan al Muthallath amongst her husbands. It is possible that he was the last person that she married. This has been reported by al Tabari in his Tarikh (4/417, events of the year 144 A.H). It is also recorded in Maqatil al Talibiyin, pg. 171; and Muntaha al Amal as mentioned above.
