Ancestry of Prophet Muhammad ('s)

By Hj S. Abidin

Sura Feel- Amul Feell was the year the Prophet of Islam ('s) was born

The Arabian tribe Qurayshites were direct descendants of Prophet Ibrahim ('a) through his elder son Prophet Ishmail ('a).

The Hashimites

The 20th generation following the line from Prophet Ishmail ('a) was a man named Abd-Manaf. He had four (4) sons: Hashim, Muttalib, Naufal and Abu Shams. 

Hashim died leaving his young son to be raised by his brother, Muttalib and thus the son of Hashim became known as Abdul Muttalib.

The descendants of Hashim through his son Abdul Muttalib, were known as the Hashimites or Bani Hashim. Abdul Muttalib has ten (10) sons: some of whom were Hamza, Abbas, Abu Taleb, Jafar, Abdullah and Abi Lahab who is cursed in al-Qur'an. His daughters were Safiyah and Aatika.

Abu-Shams, brother of Hashim, owned an evil hearted, crafty, Roman, heathen, slave boy named Umayyah, who was gifted to him by his father. Due to a close attachment between owner and slave, Abu-Shams adopted him as a son. 

The Umayyads

Umayyah held an inherent envy and enmity against Hashim and the Hashimites.

The privileged hereditary duties of service to the Holy Ka'ba was handed down from Abd-Manaf to his son Hashim, who was very noble and godly in nature and temperament. From this point on, the Trusteeship and the Custody of the Holy House of Allah, the Holy Ka'ba, was exclusively enjoyed by the Hashimites.

The envy and jealousy grew within Umayyah the slave and his descendants against the Hashimites. The wickedness, hostility and aggression steadily increased within these people who became well known for their notorious evil acts as the enemies of Allah (swt). They became known as the Umayyads or Bani Umayyah.

Abdul Muttalib

Abdul Muttalib was handed down the rulership of the Holy City of Makka. Within the region of his rulership lay the Spring-well of Zam-Zam. After lying hidden and unknown to anyone for a period of ages, Zam-Zam was miraculously discovered by Abdul Muttalib. This mysterious uncovering greatly increased the reverence and respect held for Abdul Muttalib across the entire Arabian Peninsula.

Abdul Muttalib was the grandfather of both the Greatest of Allah's Apostles, abu-Qasim Nabi Muhammad al-Mustafa ('s) through his son Abdullah, and the first of the Twelve Holy Imams abu-Hasan Amirul Momineen Ali al-Murtaza ('a) through his son Abu Taleb.

Signs of Prophet Muhammad's Birth

The year that marked the birth of Prophet Muhammad ('s) was Amul Feel, the Year of the Elephant, in which Allah (swt) send tiny birds with small bits of clay to protect His House the Holy Ka'ba from the evil Christian army who had come to destroy it. (see Surah 105 in the Holy Qur'an).

On the 17th Rabiul Awwal, Amul Feel (587 AD), the Divine Light of Prophet Muhammad (s) was born. During this year there were five (5) main signs to announce the arrival of Allah's final Messenger. These were:

  1. The idols within the Ka'ba themselves fell down, hitting their faces to the ground and broke.

  2. The worshipped fire in the alter that had burned continuously for 1000 years in Persia itself was extinguished.

  3. The palace of the Persian King Naushirwan the Just, was shaken to its foundations.

  4. An earth quake shook the earth, and

  5. There was an extraordinary issue of shooting stars from heaven.

Through Prophet Muhammad ('s) the Divine Light of Guidance to Humanity and the final Revelations from Allah (swt) to mankind until the Day of Judgment, were handed down and carried on in it's perfect form through his descendants, Lady Fatimah ('a) and the Twelve Holy Imams ('a).
