Sayyidina ‘Abdullah al Mahd ibn Hassan al Muthanna

 

 

 

Name and lineage  

He is the esteemed and noble Sayed Abu Muhammad ‘Abdullah ibn Hassan ibn Hassan ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib al Hashimi al Qurashi al Madani, great grandson of the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, who was titled Al Mahd[1].

He possessed the same virtues and noble disposition as his forefathers.

له خلف يكفي السيادة بارع

اذا مات منا سيد قام بعده

على اضيله و العرق للعرق نازع

من ابنائه و العرق ينصل فرعه

When a leader from amongst us passes away, he is succeeded by a successor who is adept in handling matters of leadership…

From amongst his sons. And the offshoot of every root emerges just like it, for a breed draws the traits of its breed.

 

We have already discussed his ancestry under the biography of his father and there is no need to repeat it here.

[1] Al Mahd means pure. It is said that he was given this title due to both his mother and father being Hashimi (as mentioned by Ibn ‘Inabah in ‘Umdat al Talib, pg. 173), and it has also been said that this is a title given to one whose parents are cousins.
