There are many charlatans who have claimed linage to Muhammad[1] over the centuries and even today. So it is extremely important to refer to Al-Qurán to know the truth about the messenger of Allâh as his full record is safeguarded in the Divine Book by Allâh Himself. I refer you to just a few verses on this: Chapter 42 verse 52; Chapter 93 verses 1/8; Chapter 28 verses 85/86; Chapter 10 verses 15/18; Chapter 6 verse 50; Chapter 12 verse 108; Chapter 33 verse 2; Chapter 7 verse 3; Chapter 7 verse 203; Chapter 69 verses 43/47; Chapter 33 verse 40 etc! Kindly refer to Al-Qur’ân as all the verses are not quoted.

Allâh says Muhammad is not the father of any of your men in Chapter 33 verse 40!

Al-Qur’ân: Chapter 33 verse 40: “MUHAMMAD IS NOT THE FATHER OF ANY OF YOUR MEN, but he is the Messenger of Allâh and the khâtam (Seal) of the prophets. And Allâh is ever Knower of all things.” (cf: chapter 5 verse 3; chapter 37 verse 37)

Why did Allâh make this statement for all time in His Book? Because the sperm of the male determines the gender of the child as is mentioned in Chapter 75 verse 39: (Cf: Chapter 23 verses 12/16; Chapter 22 verse 5; etc)

Al-Qur’ân: Chapter 75 verse 39. “AND OF HIM (the male) HE (i.e. ALLAH) MADE TWO SEXES, MALE AND FEMALE.”

That is why Allah says call / name them by their father’s names!

Al-Qur’ân: Chapter 33 verse 5. “CALL THEM BY (THE NAMES OF) THEIR FATHERS: that is juster in the sight of Allah. […]”

So these verses are absolutely clear that Muhammad did not leave a grown up man who married and pro-created so that the linage of Muhammad continued. The linage of a father cannot continue from his daughters. The Qurán is absolutely clear on this point!

Allâh has made very clear that He has protected the linage of all His messengers and He has named each one.

Chapter 3verse 33. Allâh did choose Adam[2] and Nûh, the family of Ibrâhîm, and the family of 'Imrân above all people, - Chapter 3 verse 34. “OFFSPRING, one of the other: and Allâh heareth and knoweth all things.”

Who were these offspring that Allâh refers to in 3-33/4? They are mentioned in the following ayat:

Chapter 6 verse 84. “We (i.e. Allâh) gave him (i.e. Ibrâhîm) Ishâq and Yacub: all (three) guided: and before him, We (i.e. Allâh) guided Nûh, and among his progeny, Dawud, Sulaimân, Ayyûb, Yusuf, Musa, and Haroon: Thus do We (i.e. Allâh) reward those who do good:

Chapter 6 verse 85. “And Zakariya and Yahyâ, and Isa and Elias: all in the ranks of the righteous:

Chapter 6 verse 86. “And Isma'il and Elisha, and Yunus, and Lût: and to all We (i.e. Allâh) gave favour above the nations:

Chapter 6 verse 87. (to them) and to (mîn) some of their fathers, and progeny and brethren: We (Allâh) chose them, and We (i.e. Allâh) guided them to a straight way.” [All were not guided as Allâh informs us in Al-Qur’ân about Ibrâhîm’s father and Nûh’s son]

Chapter 6 verse 88. “This is the guidance of Allâh. He (i.e. Allâh) giveth that guidance to whom He pleaseth, of His worshippers. If they were to join other gods with Him (Allâh), all that they did would be vain for them.”

Chapter 6 verse 89. “These were the men to whom We (i.e. Allâh) gave the Book, and authority, and Prophethood: if these (their descendants) reject them, Behold! We (i.e. Allâh) shall entrust their charge to a new people who reject them not.

Chapter 6 verse 90. “Those were the (prophets) who received Allâh’s guidance: copy the guidance they received; say: "No reward for this do I ask of you: This is no less than a Message for the Nations."
