The Honored Lineage of Prophet Muhammad
He is Muhammad (sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam), the son of ^Abdullah, the son of ^Abdul-Mutalib, the son of Hashim, the son of ^Abdu Manaf, the son of Qusaiyy, the son of Kilab, the son of Murah, the son of Ka^b, the son of Lu’aiyy, the son of Ghalib, the son of Fihr, the son of Malik, the son of an-Nadr, the son of Kinanah, the son of Khuzaymah, the son of Mudrikah, the son of Ilyas, the son of Mudar, the son of Nizar, the son of Ma^ad, the son of ^Adnan.
After Adnan the honorable lineage goes back to Prophet Isma^il the son of Prophet Ibrahim peace be upon them.
He is from the tribe of Quraysh, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, is the slave of Allah and His Messenger to all the creation.
One must believe he was born in Makkah and sent as a Messenger therein; he immigrated to al-Madinah and was buried therein; and he was truthful in everything he told about and conveyed from Allah. Among what the Prophet informed us is: the torture in the grave and the enjoyment therein; the questioning of the two angels, Munkar and Nakir; Resurrection (Ba^th); Assembly (Hashr); the Day of Judgement (Qiyamah); Presentation of the deeds (Hisab); Reward (Thawab); Punishment (^Adhab); the Balance (Mizan); Hellfire (Nar); the Bridge (Sirat); the Basin (Hawd); the Intercession (Shafa^ah); Paradise (Jannah); seeing Allah, ta^ala, with the eye in the Hereafter, without Him having a form or being in a place or a direction--different from the way a creation is seen; the dwelling forever in Paradise or Hellfire; the belief in Allah's Angels, Messengers, Books, and Destiny (Qadar1)--both good and evil; and that Muhammad, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, is the last of the prophets and the best of all the children of Adam."
