SEERAH OF MUHAMMAD
(SalAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) 💕
📚 LESSON 2⃣ 📚
The Prophet’s (SalAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) lineage is called HASHMI after his great grandfather, Hashim. Hashim assumed the position of host to the pilgrims, a privilege which, after him, was transferred to his brother, Muttalib. After Muttalib’s death, the progeny of Hashim reclaimed this privilege and retained it until the advent of Islam.
Hashim was very well-respected and earned the title Sayyed Bathaa (chief of Bathaa). He was called Hashim (one who mashes something) because he used to mash pieces of bread in meat and soup and distribute it for others to eat.
The Quraysh were merchants by profession, and Hashim arranged trade journeys for them to Yemen each winter and to Syria each summer. He obtained security for them from the authorities in both these countries. In Surah Quraysh, Allah reminds the Quraysh of their debt to Him for these important trade expeditions.
Hashim once passed by Yathrib (later known as Madinah) en route to Syria, and there he married Salma bint Amr, a lady from the tribe Banu Adiy bin Najjar. He halted there for a few days and then left for Syria. He passed away in Gaza, a famous city in Palestine. At the time of his departure, Salma was pregnant. She gave birth to a son whose hair had white streaks. She therefore named him SHAYBA, which means “one with gray hair.”
None of Hashim’s relatives in Makkah knew about the birth of Shayba. Eight years later, however, Muttalib found out about his dead brother’s son and decided to bring Shayba to Makkah. When he entered Makkah with Shayba, the people thought the young boy was Muttalib’s slave and referred to Shayba as Abdul Muttalib, which means ‘Muttalib’s slave”. Thus, Shayba became known as Abdul Muttalib.
Abdul Muttalib grew up to be a very handsome man and became a leading figure of the Quraysh tribe. He was the chieftain of the Quraysh and oversaw the tribe’s trade caravans. Famous for his generosity, he was called “the Generous.” He gave his leftovers to the needy, and even to animals and birds. For this reason, he was described as the “feeder of men on earth and of beasts and birds on the mountaintops.”
Abdul Muttalib also had the honor of rediscovering the sacred well of Zamzam. This well had gushed forth when the infant Isma’eel (‘alaihi salaam) kicked at the dry sand while his mother, Hajira, searched for water. The location of the well had been forgotten ever since the tribe of Jurhum covered it when they were being exiled from Makkah.
One night Abdul Muttalib had a dream in which he was shown where to dig the well. When he started digging next to the Ka’bah, the water of Zamzam began to flow again.
