ISLAMIC AL-JUMUAA REMINDER AND LEGACY GROUP (http://aljumaareminder.com/reminds about Prophet Muhammad’s full name and family:


Normally, we know the name of the Founder of Islam by only his first and most known name: Muhammad (S.A.W). But, for most Muslims, we know him by many names. And there is his longer name, which many Muslims too, know of – which traces his name way back to Adam, the first man on Earth. Prophet Muhammad was born in Makkah as a fulfilment of the prayer of Abraham.

With respect to the lineage of Prophet Muhammad [pbuh], there are three versions:

  • The first was authenticated by biographers and genealogists and states that Muhammad’s genealogy has been traced to ‘Adnan.
  • The second is subject to controversies and doubt, and traces his lineage beyond ‘Adnan back to Abraham.

The third version, with some parts definitely incorrect, traces his lineage beyond Abraham back to Adam [AWS].


Below, in Bold alphabets, is the Prophet’s full name:

Muhammad; Ibn ‘Abd Allah; Ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib; Ibn Hashim; Ibn ‘Abd Manaf; Ibn Qusay; Ibn Kelaab; Ibn Mor’ah; Ibn Ka’ab; Ibn Lo’ayy; Ibn Ghalib; Ibn Fa’hr; Ibn Malik; Ibn Al’Nadar; Ibn Kenana; Ibn Khuzaymah; Ibn Modrakah; Ibn Elias; Ibn Modhar; Ibn Nizaar; Ibn Ma’ad; Ibn ‘Adnaan.
Most renowned Muslim scholars and ulamaa agree with Rasool Lal Lah’s  (صلي الله علية وسلم) name, tracing his family lineage up to ‘Adnaan. But after ‘Adnaan, there are many doubts and controversies. That’s why most Muslims – even scholars, when asked to name him through his family lineage, they would only prefer to give names up to ‘Adnaan.


“Call them by the names of their fathers: that is more just with Allah. But if you know not their father’s (names, call then) your brothers in faith and Mawalikum (your freed slaves). And there is no sin on you concerning that in which you made a mistake, except in regard to what your hearts deliberately intend. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Qur’an 33:5).

Al-Bukhaari (3508) and Muslim (61) narrated from Abu Dharr (may Allah be pleased with him) that he heard the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) say: “Any man who knowingly attributes himself to someone other than his father is guilty of kufr. Whoever claims to belong to a people when he has nothing to do with them, let him take his place in Hell.”

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever calls himself by other than his father’s name (or attributes himself to someone other than his father), will be cursed by Allah, the angels and all the people.” (Reported by Ibn Maajah, 2599; see also Saheeh al-Jaami’, 6104).
