CLASS 5 - LESSON 2
QUSAY SON OF KILAB
Qusay was the fourth ancestor of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (S). Qusay
and his brother Zohrah were very young when their father, Kilab, died.
Their mother, Fatimah, married another man, Rabia, who took his new
family with him to Syria. Rabia took care of Qusay as his own son.
When Qusay was grown up, there was a quarrel between him and Rabia's
tribe. As a result, Qusay returned to his birthplace, Makka. Since he was a
good leader, he soon became very powerful amongst the Makkans, and
especially the tribe of Quraish.
Qusay was generous and brave and he was popular because he had very
good manners and treated people kindly. He became the chief of the
Quraish.
One important thing he did was to set up the Daar-un-Nadwa which was a
house next to the Holy Ka'ba, where the chiefs of all the tribes would
gather to discuss their problems.
Qusay took over all the responsibilities of the tribe of Quraish, which were:
1. Hijaba In charge of the keys of the Holy Ka'ba.
2. Nadwa Chairman of Daar-un-Nadwa.
3. Rifada Feeding of the pilgrims.
4. Saqaya Supplying water to the pilgrims.
5. Liwa Appointer of the standard bearer of the Quraish
in war.
6. Qiyada Commander of the army in war.
Qusay died in 5 A.D. and left behind two sons, Abdud Daar and Abd
Manaaf.

3. Draw a symbol representing the responsibility.
Marks will be given for creativity, presentation and content.
In his will, Qusay made his elder son, Abdud Daar, the new chief of the
Quraish and left the six duties connected with the Quraish to him. The
younger brother, Abd Manaaf, was the wiser, but he never tried to take the
leadership away from his brother.
After the two brothers died, their sons began to quarrel about the division
of the six duties. Finally, it was decided that the duties would be divided
between Abd Manaaf's sons and Abdud Daar's sons.
