Beware of the “Prophets’ Family Tree”
By Shaykh Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah)

 And the author; may Allah have mercy upon him, brings the benefit in his statement: “From Nuh to Muhammad”, that Adam was not a Messenger. And that which has been mentioned that Idris is the grandfather of Nuh is a lie, because Idris did not come before Nuh. Idris came after him. And what is apparent, and Allah knows best, is he was from the children of Israel.

Thus whoever alleges that Idris was the grandfather of Nuh has lied and opposed the Quran and the Sunnah.

﴿إِنّا أوْحيْنا إِليْك كما أوْحيْنا إِلىٰ نوحٍ والنّبِيِّين مِنْ بعْدِهِ ﴾ النساء:163

Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the Prophets after him.
(Soorah An Nisa 4:163)

And beware of the tree, the family tree of the Prophets, it is written, and sometimes it is sold, and it is wide spread. It is written (on this tree) that Idris is before Nuh. This is a lie and it is obligatory upon the one who sees this to tear it because it will cause the Aqeedah of the Muslims to take a dangerous turn. It will alter the Aqeedah of the Muslims to believe that Nuh was preceded by a Messenger. And this is a lie. And in the Quran (the verse appears)

Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the Prophets after him.
(Soorah An Nisa 4:163)

And in the Quran also:

﴿ولقدْ أرْسلْنا نوحًا وإِبْراهِيم وجعلْنا فِي ذرِّيّتِهِما النّبوّة والْكِتاب﴾[ الحديد:26]

And indeed, We sent Nuh and Ibrahim, and placed in their offspring Prophethood and Scripture
(Soorah Al Hadid 57:26)

In their offspring, thus it is not possible that there exist Prophethood and Scripture before Nuh. And in the Sunnah; the people will come to Nuh on the Day of Judgment and say to him: You are the first Messenger that Allah sent.
