Daughter of a Prophet, Uncle was a Prophet, Married to a Prophet

Safiyyah bint Huyayy ibn Akhtab (رضي الله عنها) was a descendant of Prophet Haroon (عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ), and this is why the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) consoled her by saying that she was the daughter of a Prophet (referring to Prophet Haroon (عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ)).
