He (lbn Sa`d) said: Hisham Ibn Muhammad Ibn al-Sŕ’ib al-Kalbi informed us on the authority of his father, he said:

When Qusayyi Ibn Kilab died, `Abd Manaf Ibn Qusayyi succeeded him, and all the affairs of the Quraysh passed into his control. He marked some quarters at Makkah as Qusayyi had done for his people.

When Allah revealed: “And warn thy tribe of near kindered” (Al-Qur’an, 26:214) the Prophet confined his preaching to the descendants of `Abd Manaf.

He (Ibn Sa’d) said: Hisham Ibn Muhammad informed us, he said: My father related to me on the authority of Abu Salih, he on the authority of Ibn `Abbas; he said:

When Allah the most High, revealed to the Prophet: “And warn thy tribe of near kindred”, he came out and ascended al-Marwah, then he said: O descendants of Fihr! Thereupon the Quraysh assembled and Abu Lahab Ibn `Abd al-Muttalib said: Here are (the descendants of) Fihr by your side, so declare (whatever you want). Then the Prophet said: 0 descendants of Ghalib! Thereupon the Banu Muhárib and Banu al-Hárith sons of Fihr retired. Then he said: O descendants of Luwayyi Ibn Ghalib! Thereupon Banu Taym al-Adram lbn Ghalib retired. Then he said: 0 descendants of Ka`b Ibn Luwayyi! Thereupon the Banu ‘Amir Ibn Luwayyi retired. Then he (Prophet) said: 0 descendants of Murrah Ibn Ka’b! Thereupon the Banu `Adi Ibn Ka’b, the Banu Sahm and the Banu Jumah sons of ‘Amr Ibn Huss Ibn Ka’b Ibn Luwayyi retired. Then he (Prophet) said: 0 descendants of Kilab Ibn Murrah! Thereupon the Banu Makhzum Ibn Yaqzah Ibn Murrah and the Banu Taym Ibn Murrah retired. Then he (Prophet) said: 0 descendants of Qusayyi! Thereupon the Banu Zuhrah Ibn Kilab retired. Then he (Prophets) said: 0 descendants of ‘Abd Manaf! Thereupon the Banu ‘Abd al-Dar Ibn Qusayyi, the Bane Asad Ibn `Abd al-‘Uzza Ibn Qusayyi and the Banu `Abd Ibn Qusayyi retired. Then Abu Lahab said: Here are the descendants of ‘Abd Manaf by thy side, so declare (whatever thou likest), The Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him, said: Verily Allah has commanded me to warn my tribe of near kindred and you are nearer to me than the Quraysh, and I cannot get luck for you from Allah nor a share in the life hereafter unless you declare that there is no god but Allah; to which I shall bear witness before your Lord, and then the Arabs will follow your creed and the Persians will surrender. Thereupon Abu Lahab said: May you perish! Did you invite us for this? Subsequently Allah revealed: “The power of Abu Lahab will perish” (Al-Qurán, 112:1); in this verse signifies, (lose, perish).

He (Ibn Sa’d) said: HishAm Ibn Muhammad Ibn al-Sa’ib al-Kalbi informed us orb the authority of his father; he said:

‘Abd [P. 43] Manaf Ibn Qusayyi begot six male and six female children, namely, (1) al-Muttalib Ibn ‘Abd Manaf who entered into an alliance, on behalf of the Quraysh, with al-Najŕshi about their trade in his dominion; (2) Háshim Ibn ‘Abd Manaf, whose name was ‘Amr and who made an alliance on behalf of the Quraysh with Heraclius, that they might visit Syria safely, (3) `Abd Shams Ibn ‘Abd Manaf; (1) Tumŕdir Bint `Abd Manaf, (2) Hannah, (Hayyah in Ibn Hisham.) (3)Qilabah, (4) Barrah and (5) Hálah were daughters of `Abd Manaf. Their mother was `Atikah al-Kubra Bint Murrah Ibn Hilŕl Ibn Fŕlij (Falikh in Ibn Hishám) Ibn Thalabah (Ibn Hishám omits this name) Ibn Dhakwán Ibn Thalabah Ibn Buhthah Ibn Sulaym lbn Mansur lbn `Ikrimah Ibn Khasafah Ibn Qays Ibn `Aylan Ibn Mudar.
