Respected reader, were you to conclude after becoming aware of the names of the Ahlul Bayt and their intermarrying with progeny of the Sahabah that a relationship of deep love and affection, coupled with sincere admiration, existed between them then most certainly you have concluded correctly. You have now studied the evidences we have collected from numerous sources—books of history, biographies, and genealogy—related to this topic.

I ask Allah to reward me for this humble effort, with his endless bounties, as my intention was but to elucidate on the noble ancestry and practice—both verbally and by action—of the noble Sahabah and pure Ahlul Bayt.

You would have understood the importance of genealogy and the necessity of refraining from attacking the ancestry of the noble Sahabah, as it meets with that of the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam through a number of links.

I have presented as many beneficial pearls as I could from the vast oceans of genealogy, history, biographies, and personal accounts; but there is no end to the pearls the readers can still extract.

We did elaborate on certain issues, as my intention was to compile a separate book on them[1], may Allah assist me in completing it.

I completed my review of this book on Monday 10 Jamada al Akhir 1426 A.H, 25 July 2005.


NEXT⇒ Appendix 1 – The report of Mus’ab al Zubairi in Nasab Quraysh which highlights the amicable relationship between the houses of ‘Ali and Zubair

[1] I hope to compile a list of a hundred male and female Companions whose ancestry meets with that of the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam in a separate book. This is why I have restricted this book with mention of only the Ten Promised Jannat, the Ummahat al Mu’minin, and a few other prominent Companions.
