Asked in Quran (Koran), Prophet Muhammad
What was the full name of Zaid written in Quran?
In the Qur'an, the name is simply "Zaid", with no additional names. We know from sources like Tabari that his full name was Zaid al-Habib ibn Harithah ibn Sharahil ibn Abduluzza ibn Imri al-Qays ibn Amir ibn Al-Numan ibn Amir ibn Abdwalid ibn Awf ibn Kinana ibn Awf ibn Uzra ibn Zaidallat ibn Rufayda ibn Thawt ibn Kalb ibn Wabara ibn Taghlib ibn Talwan ibn Irmram ibn Al-Haf ibn Quda'a ibn Malik ibn Amr ibn Murrah ibn Malik ibn Himayr ibn Saba ibn Yashjub ibn Yarab ibn Qaltan. Al-Habib ("the beloved") was a byname; Uzra was his clan; Kalb was his tribe proper; Taghlib was his super-tribe; Himayr was the general group of tribes in the area. So are you surprised that the Qur'an simply calls him "Zaid"?

What is the full name of the Prophet Muhammad?
The Prophet's lineage is clearly documented in books of history; every one of his fathers is known all the way back until `Adnan. And even though the historians disagree about the names of `Adnan's forefathers, they agree that `Adnan - and by extension the Prophet (peace be upon Him) - was a direct descendant of the Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him). Keeping in mind that the word "ibn" means "son of". Here then the full name of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him). Muhammad ibn `Abdullah ibn `Abdul-Muttalib ibn Hashim ibn `Abd-Manaf ibn Qusai ibn Kilab ibn Murrah ibn Ka'ab ibn Luaiy ibn Ghalib ibn Faihr ibn Malik ibn An-Nadr ibn Kinanah ibn Khuzaimah ibn Mudrikah ibn Ilyas ibn Mudar ibn Nizar ibn Mu`idd ibn `Adnan [Al-Bukhari (along with ibn Hajar's famous conmmentary, Al-Fath), the Book of the Ansar's Virtues; chapter, "The Sending of the Prophet (peace be upon Him)," before hadith number: 3851]
