Lineage order of Messengers

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


This is eleventh Chapter of Holy Qur’aan which was revealed some years ago from Flight {Hijrat of God’s last Messenger; Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)} from Makkah to Madinah.


Those contents have been completed in this Surah which were recited in the previous Surah (Younus). It was described in Surah Younus that Allah Almighty sent His Messengers (peace be upon them) from time to time to show the mankind Straight and Right Path, who explained that this entire world has been created by Allah Almighty with His Divine Power according to an established Order. His Philosophy demands that the best mankind from all should be appointed as His Messenger, who should cause to know the people that; how should they use their physical and mental strength? Therefore, from those Messengers (peace be upon them), circumstances of Noah, then Moses and Aaron (peace be upon them) were mentioned in Surah Younus; and it was described that in the period between them, many Prophets (peace be upon them) came unto their nations separately.


In this Chapter, those Messengers and Prophets (peace be upon them) have been set in order as under:


  • Noah (peace be upon him)


  • Hud (peace be upon him)



  • Saleh (peace be upon him)


  • Abraham (peace be upon him)



  • Lut (peace be upon him)


  • Shuaib (peace be upon him)


It has been caused to understand in Holy Qur’aan that these all Messengers were links of Messengers’ lineage (peace be upon them). Your Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) will cause to hear you their circumstances Himself.


First of all, it will be a sign that He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is a Messenger also, Who has not acquired knowledge from any other himself and even then, He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has been describing you correct circumstances of ancient people, because Allah Almighty has inspired on him this all.


Secondly, you will be taught; how to learn, from these circumstances so that you may keep yourselves safe from those errors; which they committed.


In this Chapter (Surah Hud), summary of the teachings of the Messengers (peace be upon them) has been provided like Surah Younus and the aim of revealing of Holy Qur’aan has been described. It is a collection of those verses; in which, there is no capacity of doubts. It is the last Holy Book, which has been given to the last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), so that He should put “A Perfect Religion” in order by manifesting and compiling the teachings of all previous Messengers (peace be upon them) for the mankind.


It was described in Surah Younus that due to disobedience of Allah Almighty and His Messengers (peace be upon them); the people suffered from punishment in the world. In Surah Hud, map of the circumstances of the Doomsday has been drawn and produced before the people. Map of the Day of Resurrection is so much frightful that Messenger of Allah Almighty commanded: Surah Hud and other Chapters like this; have made Me old.
