The Lineage of the Prophet ﷺ – Dawud Burbank [Audio|En]

April 25, 2017

The following benefit is extracted from  Audio # 13 of Aqeedah Tahawiyyah 


[4] Translator’s (Dawud Burbank) Side Point: As for the lineage of the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam, he was:

Muhammad (محمد) sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam ibn `Abdillaah (عبد الله) ibn `Abdil-Muttalib (عبد المطلب) [this was a title and his name was Shaybatul-Hamd (شيبة الحمد)] ibn Haashim (هاشم) [this was a title and his name was `Amr (عمرو)] ibn `Abd Manaaf (عبد مناف) ibn Qusay (قصي) [this was a title and his name was Zayd (زيد)] ibn Kilaab (كلاب)

ibn Murrah (مرة) ibn Ka`ab (كعب) ibn Lu.ay (لؤي) ibn Ghaalib (غالب) ibn Fihr (فهر) ibn Maalik (مالك) ibn An-Nadr (النضر) ibn Kinaanah (كنانة) ibn Khuzaymah (خزيمة) ibn Mudrikah (مدركة) [this was a title and his name was `Amr (عمرو)] ibn Ilyaas (إلياس) ibn Mudar (مضر) ibn Nizaar (نزار) ibn Ma`ad (معد) ibn `Adnaan (عدنان)

This list is taken from the Abridged Seerah of Ibn Katheer:  الفصول في سيرة الرسول صلى لله عليه وسلم

Imaam An-Nawawee said in Tahdheeb al-Asmaa. wal-Lughaat (تهذيب الأسماء واللغات), “This lineage here, there is consensus of the Ummah of these names here.”

Likewise, Al-Bukhaaree in a chapter heading of his book brings the lineage of the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam with these same names here.

So this is by consensus; the lineage of the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam is preserved, back to `Adnaan.  With regard to the lineage after `Adnaan then there are different sayings.  Some of the scholars withhold and say that they don’t know the lineage in detail any further than that.  Others mention different names with different numbers of names in the list and the verifiers from the scholars say that after `Adnaan, the lineage is not authentic.  All that we know after `Adnaan, is that `Adnaan was a descendent of the Messenger of Allaah, Ismaa.eel `alayhis-salaam, who was the son of the Messenger of Allaah, Ibraaheem `alayhis-salaam, who was the son of Aazar.  And beyond that we don’t know; except that Ibraaheem `alayhis-salaam was a descendent of the Messenger of Allaah, Nooh `alayhis-salaam and that Nooh `alayhis-salaam was a descendent of Aadam `alayhis-salaam.
