Banu Hashim and Banu Umaiyya

29 Nov

Ibn Atheer in Tareekh-e Kaamil:

Abd Manaf had twin sons, Hashim and Abd ash-Shams…When Hashim (great grandfather of the Messenger of Allah) inherited the leadership and rule of his community from his father, Abd ash-Shams’s son, Umaiyya (great grandfather of Muawiya ibn Abu Sufyan) turned green with envy. This was the start of the enemity between Banu Hashim and Banu Umayya.
