Marriage of the Daughters of the Prophet (ﷺ)

There are contradicting texts with regard to marriage of the daughters of the Prophet (ﷺ) Ruqayya and Umm Kulthum (رضى الله عنهما). One narration says that they were married to the sons of Abu Lahab, and were divorced to express animosity towards the Prophet (ﷺ). And in another narration it says that the Prophet (ﷺ) engaged the hand of his daughter Ruqayya to Uthman (رضى الله عنه) before the attainment of his prophethood.

Yes, this is an issue which historians differ on and we find contradicting narrations in various compilations.
