Sheikh Hamza Yusuf

The method of memorisation of the blessed lineage of the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him)

معٍ شهٍ عقكٍ كمٍ كلَغفمن كخم امنٍ معٍ

(م – محمد ع—عبدالله ش- شيبة (عبد المطالب  
ه- هاشم ع- عبد المناف  ق- قصى ك- كلاب م -مرة  ك- كعب
ل- لؤى غ- غالب ف- فهر م-مالك ن- النضر 
ك – كنانة خ – خزيمة م – مدركة م – معد 
ع –عدنان




During Sheikh Hamza Yusuf’s commentary on Discerning the Eye's Delight in the Life of the Chosen Prophet (Qurrat al-Absar) made during the Rihla in 2008; he gave us this method to memorise the lineage of the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bestow peace and blessings be upon him). Each letter refers to someone in the lineage and we have added the names that the letters are referring to.

The audio is available for paid members of the deen intensive website.

The remainder of the lineage can be found in Ibn Hisham’s text that goes back to Adam (upon him peace).
