The lineage of the Holy Nabi صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم is the best and the greatest
of all other lineages of mankind. Even the worst enemies of the Holy Nabi, i.e. the
disbelievers of Makkah could not deny this fact. When Abu Sufyan was a disbeliever,
he had to accept this fact in the royal court of Hiraql
Although Abu Sufyan was a bitter enemy of the Holy Nabi at that time and wanted to damage his prestige in the eyes of the Emperor by finding any fault with him, he could not do that. It is narrated in the book ‘Sahih Muslim’: Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has chosen Kinanah from the descendants [i.e. children] of Isma’eel عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام, the Quraysh from Kinanah, the Bani Haashim from the Quraysh, and [He عَزَّوَجَلَّ] has chosen me from the Bani Haashim. 2
Well, it’s an undeniable fact that he صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم belongs to a great family, as is described in the following Arabic couplet:
لَهُ النَّسبُ العَالِی فَلَیسَ کَمِثلِهٖ حَسِیبٌ نَسِیبٌ مُنعَمٌ مُتَکَرَّمٗ
The lineage of the Revered and Renowned Rasool صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم is greater than that of anyone else no matter how famous lineage, favour and honour the other person has.
