This genealogy is provided by Shaykh Abd Allaah bin Abd al-Rahmaan bin Salih Aal Bassaam in his excellent, Ulamaa Najd Khilaal Thamaaniyyah Quroon (Dar al-Aasimah, 1st edition, 1419H, 1/125-126):
He is the Shaykh of Islam, the lamp for the darkness the beneficiary to the creation, the Shaykh, the Imaam Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhaab bin Sulaymaan bin Alee bin Muhammad bin Ahmad bin Raashid bin Burayd bin Muhammad bin Mashraf bin Umar bin Mi'daad bin Rees bin Zaakhir bin Muhammad bin Alawee bin Wuhayb bin Qaasim bin Moosaa bin Mas'ood bin Uqbah bin Sanee' bin Nahshal bin Shaddaad bin Zaheer bin Shihaab bin Rabee'ah bin Abee Saud bin Maalik bin Handhalah bin Maalik bin Zayd Manaah bin Tameem bin Murr bin Add bin Taabikhah bin Ilyaas bin Madhar bin Nazaar bin Mu'idd bin Adnaan. And it is to (this point in the genealogy) that the trustworthy reporters end. Otherwise, there are some genealogist who take this genealogy all the way back to Aadam (alayhis salaam) through 180 generations, but that is not established.
Then the author quotes the hadeeth of Abu Hurairah (radiallaahu anhu):
I have never ceased to love Banee Tameem since I heard three (matters) from the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) say, "They (Banu Tameem) are the most severe of my Ummah against the Dajjaal." He (Abu Hurairah) said. And their charity came (that of Banu Tameem) so the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, "This is the charity of our people (meaning Banu Tameem)." And he (Abu Hurairah) said, "And there was a female captive of war with Aa'ishah (radiallaahu anhaa) so the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said, 'Free her for she is from the offspring of Ismaa'eel'."
