Imam Ahmad joins the Prophetic lineage with Nizar bin Ma'add. So he belonged to the pure Arabic tribe Banu Bakr's clan Banu Shayban, from that he is called Al-Shaybani. Banu Shayban were the close allies of the Prophetic clan Banu Hashim during the period of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. Imam Ahmad is also remembered as Al-Dhuli for his forefather Dhul bin Tha'alabah. The most prominent Sahabah of Banu Dhuhl was Amr bin Yazid and Suwayd bin Qays رضى الله عنهما. Another contemporary jurist Muhammad bin Hasan Al-Shaybani (may Allah have mercy on him) belonged to Banu Shayban, who was a direct pupil of Imam Abu Hanifah (may Allah have mercy on him) and played a very important role in the formulation of Fiqh Hanafi.
