Salaam everyone, I uh have been trying to reconcile something. If Adnan was the ancestor of the Quraysh and the Prophet SAW, and he existed sometime 562 BC, after Nebuchadnezzar II took out the Qedar (tribe of Ishmael pbuh, and ancestor to Quraysh purportedl) Kingdom.... and the Prophet SAW himself was born in 570 AD... This would mean there's roughly 1100+ years between them. And the Prophet SAW says his descendants are 20/21 men before from himself, all the way to Adnan. So.. There's a small contention here. This would mean on the AVERAGE age of each and every one of the prophet's forefathers at conception of the next descendant, would be 54 years old......... I'm sure some of you already realize that this is problematic. Most people have kids between the ages 20 - 30 years old. Especially in ancient culture/traditions, wives may have had kids as soon as they hit 17/18 or even younger. The Prophet SAW himself had his first child in his 30's. This is really hard to reconcile as plausible guys. It seems highly unlikely that this claim is true. Unless the first 10 or so ancestors had their patrilineal main guy at 60/70 years old, then the last 10 guys had their kids at 30/40 years old.... This wouldn't make too much sense (even that example is highly dubious). The average survival age for males back then... as you all may already know.. was 50's, 60's if one was lucky. Logically, it makes sense why culturally we have kids from a very young age: Because they didn't live too long during those times. Can anyone provide or offer some insight who is knowledgeable on the subject of the Lineages and Pre-Islamic Arabia?
