He was the son of Mut`im ibn `Uday.[1]


In 12 BH (610 CE), Abu Bakr had initially engaged his daughter Aisha to Jubayr ibn Mut'im, but this arrangement was canceled in favor of her marriage to Muhammad. [3]

He was especially known for his knowledge of genealogy.[1] He was the owner of Wahshy ibn Harb, the slave who killed Hamza ibn 'Abdul Muttalib. He adopted Islam in the period between the Hudaibiah Treaty and the Conquest of Mecca.[1]

He had two sons, Nafi' ibn Jubayr[4] and Muhammad ibn Jubayr.[5] He is included in the Isnad of several hadith,[6] among them being the hadith of the two weighty things.[2]
