To Those Who Say Loving The Prophet ﷺ Too Much Leads To Shirk

Bismillah-ir Rahman-ir Raheem

Loving Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is the religion; and knowing his station (peace be upon him) is the religion! Loving him (peace be upon him) is a PART of the religion, and if you do not have this part you do not have the religion! Shaykh Faid Mohammed Said tells us why.

Whilst in Makkah, during my recent trip, I had the opportunity to converse with some of the scholars of Makkah; may Allah Most High bless the scholars, one of whom said: “I think people are exaggerating when they speak about the love of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), and I fear their exaggeration will lead them to shirk (polytheism).”

I said: may Allah bless you and open the doors of goodness for you, I understand your concern is about tawhid (the oneness of God), but we should see what the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

In a Hadith, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said if a person possesses three things he will taste the sweetness of faith:

  1. the first is to love Allah Most High and the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) more than anyone or thing,
  2. second, to love whom you love for the sake of Allah Most High, and
  3. third, to dislike returning to deviance after having been saved and guided from it by Allah Most High as much as he would hate being thrown into the fire. (Imam Muslim)

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said in this hadith that the first of the three is to love Allah Most High and the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him); he did not say love Allah Most High and then love the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him)! The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) used the word and because loving the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is loving Allah Most High!

In another hadith, narrated in Muslim and Bukhari, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: None of you believe until he loves me more than himself, his children and his parents.

And as narrated in Bukhari (6257), Syedina Omar (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “O Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), I love you more than anything but myself.”

To which the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) replied: “No! I swear by the One in whose Hand is my soul, you cannot claim iman until I am more beloved to you than yourself!”

Then Syedina Omar (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “Now, by Allah Most High, you are more beloved to me than myself!”

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him): “Now, Ya Omar, you can claim iman!”

Recalling this hadith, I said to our brother that the companions of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) were not even worried about loving him (peace be upon him) more than themselves!

If you think you are trying to compare between Allah Most High and the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), and in doing so you say to yourself that you do not want to make them on the same level (to avoid shirk), and hence you think to lower the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) slightly to insure the safety of your iman – that is the danger that should cause us to worry!

Our love for the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is love for Allah Most High!

This confuses some as they are unable to understand Allah Most High, and so they are fearful of relating or mixing – this fear in itself is shirk!

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said in a hadith that we should love Allah Most High for all the blessings He bestows upon us, love the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) because Allah Most High loves him, and to love the family of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) because of our love for him!

So our love for Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is love for Allah Most High!

The Qur’an describes aspects of the station of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) and Allah Most High love for him. Allah Most High teaches us in the Qur’an in Surah Ash-Shu’ara (82), that Ibrahim (peace be upon him) begged Allah Most High for forgiveness: “And I hope that He will forgive my sins on the Day of Judgment.”

And what did Allah Most High say to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) in Surah Al-Fath: “That Allah has forgiven you for what preceded of your sin and what will follow and complete His favor upon you and guide you to a straight path.”

Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) is begging Allah Most High and Allah Most High is giving the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) without him even asking!

Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) said in Surah Ibrahim (35): “…protect my children and I from worshipping idols”

And Allah Most High said to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) in Surah Al Ahzab (33): “…Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity, O people of the household, and to purify you completely.”

Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) is begging for purification, and Allah Most High is granting the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his family full purification!

In Surah As-Saffat (99), Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) states that: “Indeed, I will go to my Lord.”

And in Surah Al-Isra (1), Allah Most High says: “Glory to the One who took His slave at night…”

Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) is going and the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is being taken!

In Surah Ahli-Imran (173), Allah Most High relates to us the words of Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him): “Allah Most High is my Sponsor and He is the best of Sponsors.”

And in Surah Al-Anfal (64), Allah Most High says to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him): “Oh Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), Allah Most High is your Sponsor…!”

Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) is stating the Allah Most High is his Sponsor, whilst Allah Most High is telling us that He is the Sponsor of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)!

In Surah Ash-Shua’ra (87), Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him) asks Allah Most High: “And do not disgrace me on the Day they are [all] resurrected.”

And in Surah At-Tahrim (8), Allah Most High says: “…the Day when Allah will not disgrace the Prophet and those who believed with him.” (peace be upon him)

Not only did Allah Most High tell us that there will be no disgrace upon the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), but that Allah Most High will also not disgrace the believers because of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)!

Within all these ayat we see the greatness of Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him), Khalilullah, the one that Allah Most High chose as a friend, the one described as an entire ummah, the one in whose lineage all the subsequent Prophets reside, but yet we see the greatest station in the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)!

Loving the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is faith. If the ummah were to have this love, we would not be where we are now. Do not fear shirk for the one who loves; we should fear for the one who does not love. LOVE IS NOT THE CAUSE OF OUR ISSUES; IT IS THE LACK OF SUCH LOVE!

May Allah Most High guide us to iman, and make us worthy of following the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).

May Allah Most High reward our friend with the best, as he made us cry in the House of Allah Most High!

Our encounter reminded us of the great ulema of the past, in that once they had a discussion and they felt the outcome of the discussion in their heart, they would leave whatever stance they were upon. As such, we were humbled to meet this alim, as it reminded us of the great ulema: Imam Shafi (may Allah be pleased with him) held the opinion that you cannot benefit from the skin of a dead animal or the child of a dead animal because Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said to not benefit or use anything from a dead animal (narrated by Imam Ahmad). In a discussion that took place between the great scholar Ishaq ibn Rahaway (may Allah be pleased with him) and Imam Shafi (may Allah be pleased with him), the later stated that he believed that one could not benefit from the skin of a dead animal, to which Imam Ishaq (may Allah be pleased with him) said that one can benefit from the skin of a dead animal if it is cleaned properly, as that was mentioned by Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). Upon hearing this, Imam Shafi (may Allah be pleased with him) left his opinion because of the hadith that was narrated, and coincidentally, Imam Ishaq (may Allah be pleased with him) left his opinion upon hearing the hadith narrated by Imam Shafi (may Allah be pleased with him)!

Our brother reminded us of them.

May Allah Most High bless us and open our hearts to the love of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). Allahumma salli alaa Syedina Muhammad wa alaa Ahli Syedina Muhammad, fi kulli lamhatin wa nafasin ‘adada maa wa see-a-hu ‘il-muLLAH

Shall I face the Qibla with my back towards the blessed resting place of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ when making du’ā?

Imam Mālik (rahimahu Llah) was asked by the Khalif Abu Ja’far al-Mansūr:

Shall I face the Qibla with my back towards the blessed resting place of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ when making du’ā?

the-rawdah-mubarak

Imam Mālik (rahimahu Llah) replied,

How could you turn your face away from him ﷺ when he is your means (wasīla) and your father Adam’s means to Allah on the Day of Rising? No, rather you should face him ﷺ and ask for his intercession so that Allah will grant it to you, for Allah said, ‘If they had only, when they were unjust to themselves, come to you and asked Allah’s forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Oft-Returning, Most Merciful (Q4:64)’.

– Narrated by Qādī ‘Iyād in his Shifā’ (2:26-27) and Tartīb al-Madārik (1:113-14) with an authentic chain, Imam Subkī in his Shifā’ as-Siqām (Ch. 4, 7), Qastalānī in his Mawāhib Ladunniya, Ibn Bashkuwal (Qurbah pp. 84), and other

PROPHET MUHAMMAD ﷺ, THE FOCAL POINT OF UNIVERSE AND OUR LIVES!

ہو نہ يہ پھول تو بلبل کا ترنم بھی نہ ہو

Chaman-e-Dehr Mein Kaliyon Ka Tabassum Bhi Na Ho
Ye Na Saqi Ho To Phir Mai Bhi Na Ho, Khum Bhi Na Ho

If this fair flower (Muhammad) blossom not, the nightingale will not sing,
Nor rose‐buds make the garden of era smile welcoming in the spring,
If he is not the quencher, then nor jar nor wine will be,
Nor in this world will Tawheed (Oneness of God) shine, Nor your heart beat in you!

RasoolAllahﷺ Is Noor

Teri Nasle Paak me he bacha bacha Noor ka,
Too he Aine Noor tera sub gharana Noor ka.

n672380333_817416_2665

The Aqida (belief) of the Ahle Sunnat Wa Jama’at is that the Prophet (Sall Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) is Noor (Light) and came to us in the form of a man. Even though he came towards us in a human form, he is “Afdalul Bashr” (The most superior human).

It should be noted that originality does not change by the changing of a garb. Hazrat Jibra’eel Ameen (Alaihis Salaam) is Noor but when appeared before Hazrat Maryam (RadiAllahu Anhu) he would appear to her in the form of human.

Concerning this Almighty Al’laah states in the Holy Qur’aan:

“Thus he appeared to her in the form of a healthy (well built) man” [Surah Maryam Verse.17]

  • It is in Mishkaat Shareef on the authority of the Second Khalifa of Islam Hazrat Umar Farooq(رضي الله عنه) . He states:

“Once we were in the Holy Court of the Prophetﷺ  and a man appeared.” 

The Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ   asked Hazrat Umar Farooq(رضي الله عنه) if he recognized the person and Hazrat Umar Farooq(رضي الله عنه)  said:“Almighty Al’laah and His beloved Rasoolﷺ   know better. The Prophetﷺ   said,

“It is Jibra’eel (Alaihis Salaam).” [Mishkaat-ul-Masabih Pg.11 – Bukhari Shareef]

It is obvious that the Sahaba referred to Hazrat Jibra’eel (Alaihis Salaam) as a man since they had seen him in the form of a human being. He had black hair, hands, legs, eyes, ears and a nose. All these are human qualities, yet it is obvious that he is not human but an Angel who is Noor, and just appeared to them in the form of a man.

It is a well known fact to the people of knowledge that in the Hadith it has been narrated on numerous occasions about how Hazrat Jibra’eel (Alaihis Salaam) presented himself in the Holy Court of the Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ  as a human.

On many instances he came in the form of Sahabi-e- Rasool Hazrat Dahia Kalbi (رضي الله عنه).

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

  • The Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ  has stated,

“The very first creation which Almighty Al’laah created was my Noor.”[Tafseer Nayshapuri Pg. 55 Vol.8 – Tafseer Roohul Bayaan Pg.548 Vol.1 – Zurqaani Shareef Pg.37 Vol.1 – Madarijun Nabuiwa Pg.2 Vol.2 – Bayaanul Milaadun Nabwi Li ibn Jauzi Pg.24]

  • The Distinguished Sahabi-e-Rasool  Hazrat Jaabir(رضي الله عنه)  respectfully enquired from the Holy Prophetﷺ ,“O Prophet of Al’laah , my parents be sacrificed upon you. What is the first thing which Almighty Al’laah created before everything else?

The Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ  replied,

“O Jaabir ! Undoubtedly, before creating anything else, Almighty Al’laah created the Noor of your Nabi  from His Noor” [Mawahibul Laduniyah Shareef Pg.9 Vol.1 – Zurqaani Shareef Pg.46 Vol.1 –Seerat-e-Halbia Pg.37 Vol.1 – Sharah Dalailul Kheyraat Pg.210 –Hujatul’laahi alal Alameen Pg.28 – Anwaarul Muhammadiya Pg.9 -Fatawa Hadeethia Pg.51]

  • The annotator of Bukhari Imam Ahmad Qastalaani (Rahimahullah) in his most distinguished work “Mustataab Mawahibul Laduniyah” presents a narration on the authority of Hazrat Imam Zainul Abedeen (Alaihi Salaam)  who narrates from His father Hazrat Imam Hussain (Alaihi Salaam)  who narrates from His father Hazrat Ali Mushkil Kusha (Alaihi Salaam)  that the Holy Prophet ﷺ said, “14000 years before the creation of Hazrat Adam (Alaihis Salaam), I was a Noor (Light) by my Creator.” [Mawahibul Laduniyah Pg.10 Vol.1 – Jawahirul Bihar Pg.774 – Anwaarul Muhammadiya, Pg.9 – Hujatul’laahi Alal Alameen – Tafseer Roohul Bayaan Pg.370 Vol.2]

After examining the above mentioned sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ  it is as bright and evident as the sun that the Holy Prophet ﷺ referred to himself as being Noor and he did so in a very clear manner to his Ummah. Those who oppose and contradict the Nooraniyat of the Holy Prophet  are definitely against the Holy Prophet ﷺ .

Now let us examine the Aqida (belief) of the Glorious Sahaba-e- Kiraam (Companions of the Prophet ) who are beacons of guidance for the Ummah.

  • Renowned Muhaditheen of the Ummate Muhammadiﷺ,  Allama Muhadith Baihiqi (rahimahullah)and Hazrat Allama Yusuf Nabhaani (rahimahullah) have explained the belief of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique(رضي الله عنه)  from one of his stanzas in praise of the Holy Prophetﷺ :

Muhammad Mustafaﷺ  is the Honest and is the One who invites towards righteousness; His Bright Light takes away darkness and destroys it like the radiance of the full Moon.” [Dalail-un-Nabuiwat, Pg.225 Vol.1 – Jawahirul Bihar Pg.96 Vol.1].

  • The fourth Khalifa of Islam Hazrat Ali Murtuza(رضي الله عنه)  states,

When the Beloved of Al’laah  used to speak then Noor (light) could be seen beaming from between his blessed teeth.” [Mawahibul Laduniyah Pg. 270 Vol.1 – Anwaarul Muhammadiya Pg.132 – Zurqaani Shareef]

  • After gaining victory and success in Ghazwa-e-Tabook when Rasoolullahﷺ  arrived in Madinatul Munawwara, Hazrat Abbas (رضي الله عنه) asked for permission from the Prophet ﷺ to present a few stanzas in his praise. Mercy unto the Worlds, The Holy Prophet ﷺ said, “My dear Uncle! Go ahead. Let Almighty Al’laah keep your tongue in good health (One worthy of praising).”
  • Two of these stanzas are being noted below. These have been recorded in the distinguished works of great Muhaditheen such as Imam Jalaludeen Suyuti, Muhadith ibn Jauzi, Allama Ibn Hajr, Allama Halbi, Allama Dahlaan Makki, Allama Nabhaani, Allama ibn Abdul Birr, Allama Haakim and Allama Sharistaani

On your blessed Birth the earth became bright,
Through the radiance of your light”
“So in that radiance and in that light
We attain and travel the path of guidance”

[Kitaabul Wafa Pg.35 Vol.1 – Khasaais-ul-Kubra Pg.97 Vol.1 – Jawahirul Bihar Pg.40 – Anwaarul Muhammadiya – Hujatul’laahi Alal Alameen Pg.222 – Mawahibul Laduniyah Pg.23 Al Bidaaya Wan Nihaaya Pg.258 Vol.2]

  • The blessed and distinguished Sahabi-e-Rasool Hazrat Abu Hurairah (رضي الله عنه) states,

When the beloved Prophetﷺ  used to smile, the walls would glow with his Noor (Light).” [Mawahibul Laduniyah Pg.271 Vol.1 – Anwaarul Muhammadiya Pg.133, Shifa Shareef Pg.39 – Commentary Shamai’l Tirmizi Pg.16 – Madarijun Nabuiwat (Persian) Pg.12 – Hujatul’laahi Alal Alameen Pg 689]

  • Sahabi-e-Rasool Hazrat Anas (رضي الله عنه) says,

“The entire Madinatul Munawwara became bright through the Noorof the Prophet (sall Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) on the day when he entered into the City (Madina).” [Tirmizi Shareef Pg.202 Vol.2 -Mishkaatul Masabih Pg. 547 – Ibn Majah Shareef Pg.119 – Tabaqaatibn Sa’ad Pg.221 Vol.1 -Mawahibul Laduniyah Pg.68 Vol.1 – Anwaarul Muhammadiya Pg.38 -Seerate Halabia Pg.234 Vol.2 – Jawahirul Bihar Pg. 60 – Khasaais-ul-Kubra Pg.471 Vol.1 -Madarijun Nabuiwat Pg.81 Vol .2]

Now, after examining all the narrations quoted by the Sahaba-e- Kiraam, it is very clear and obvious that they accepted the Prophet (salla Al’laahu alaihi wasallam)  to be Noor. In the light of Ahadith of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (salla Al’laahu alaihi wasallam)  it is clear that the claim of the deviants that they are also part of the Ahle Sunnah Wa Jamaat is only a hoax and a fraudulent act as they do not accept the Prophet (salla Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) as Noor. The proper Ahle Sunnah Wa Jamaat are those who accept the Prophet  as Noor and they are the ones who are known in the world as Sunni.

Those who reject the Prophet (salla Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) as being Noor, say that the Holy Prophet (salla Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) had wives, He had children, He used to eat and drink and it is for this reason that He is not Noor (In other words he possessed all human qualities). They do not accept our Prophet (salla Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) as Noor since he had wives and children, he (salla Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) ate and drank etc; but the Sahaba (RadiALlahu Anhum) of the Holy Prophet (salla Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) also saw that He had wives, children etc; but still they accepted him to be Noor.

  • The Imam-ul-Mufasireen of the Ummat-e-Muhammadiﷺ,  Hazrat Abdullah ibn Abbas (رضي الله عنه)  has stated concerning the Tafseer of the Ayat:

“Undoubtedly came to you from Al’laah a Light (Noor) and a Bright Book.” [Surah Maaídah Verse.15]

He (رضي الله عنه) states:

“Verily came to you from Al’laah, a light” refers to the Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ .” [Tafseer ibn Abbas Pg.72 – Published Egypt]

  • Bibi Halima Sa’adiya (radi Al’laahu anha) was the one who was blessed with being the milk mother of the Holy Prophet ﷺ. She was the person before whom the Holy Prophet ﷺ used to eat and drink. Even believed that the Holy Prophet ﷺ was Noor and this has been explained by Allama Muhadith Ibn Jauzi and Qaazi Thanaul’lah Paani Pati (radi Al’laahu anhum) as follows:

“I never felt the need for a lamp in my house, when I fed the Holy Prophet ﷺ.”

She further says, “One day Umme Khula Sa’adiya said, ‘O Halima! Do you leave the fire burning for the entire night in your home’ and I replied by saying:

No! I swear by Almighty Al’laah that I do not keep the fire burning at all, but this is actually the Noor (light) of Hazrat Muhammadﷺ .’ [Bayaanul Milaadun Nabwi Pg.54 – Tafseer Mazhari]

The second nurse (milk mother) of the Holy Prophetﷺ  also believed that Huzoorﷺ  is Noor. This is obvious from one of the stanzas of the poem which she said at the time of the passing of the Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ :

“And you were definitely a Noor, A (radiant) sun, and you used to provide brightness in darkness and emptiness.” [Tabaqaat ibn Sa’ad Pg.333 Vol.2]

Holy-Prophet-Muhammad-PBUH

After examining the beliefs of a few distinguished Sahaba-e-Kiraam (radi Al’laahu anhum), let us examine the beliefs of the Aunts (Paternal) of the Prophetﷺ :

  • Hazrat Allama Abdur Rahman Jaami (RadiAllahu Anhu)  narrates that Sayyida Safiya (rradi Al’laahu anha) the aunt of the Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ  says “On the eve of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad  I was present at his home. I saw that his Noor (radiance) became more powerful than the brightness of the lamp.” [Shawaahidun Nubuiwat Persian Pg 22]
  • After the Holy Prophet ﷺ journeyed into the hereafter, Hazrat Safia (radi Al’laahu anha) said the following stanza due to the sorrow and thought of the passing of The Holy Prophet ﷺ . From this, one may conclude that she also accepted him as Noor (Light).

I am weeping on the passing of the Holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ who was really Noor (Light).” [Tabaqaat ibn Sa’ad Pg.329 Vol.2]

It is obvious from the above mentioned narrations that Hazrat Safia (radi Al’laahu anha) always accepted the Holy Prophet  to be Noor.

  • The second aunt of the Holy Prophetﷺ , Hazrat Aatika (radi Al’laahu anha) also said that the Holy Prophet ﷺ was Noor. On the passing of the Holy Prophet ﷺ she said the following:

“O eyes! Tear in sadness on the loss of the Noor of the cities, Hazrat Muhammadﷺ  , (it is for him) for whom am I am weeping”  That Mustafaﷺ , who is Noor and who was sent with Righteousness and Guidance” [Tabaqaat ibn Sa’ad Pg.326/327 Vol.2, Published Beirut]

  • On the passing of the Prophetﷺ  the third aunt of the Holy Prophet  Sayyida Urwa (radi Al’laahu anha) pointed out what she believed.

This was recorded by ibn Sa’ad in his book Tabaqaat as follows:

Ah! Muhammad  is the Noor (Light) unto all cities, (so) let me continue praising you.” [Tabaqaat ibn Sa’ad Pg.325 Vol.2]

It is clear that even after knowing and living amongst the blessed wives and beloved children of the Holy Prophet ﷺ  and even after observing him eat and drink, the blessed aunts of the Holy Prophetﷺ   still believed that he is Noor (Light) and this was their clear and open belief (aqida).

Let us now examine the belief of the Blessed and Respected Wives of the Holy Prophetﷺ  , who are known as the “Mothers of the Ummah”

  • Um’mul Mo’mineen Hazrat Sayyida Aisha Siddiqa (radi Al’laahu anha) was the one whom the companions of the Prophet (sall Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) went to when they needed guidance regarding any issue after the passing of the Prophetﷺ  . She states:

“It was the time of sahri and I was sewing something when the needle fell down. Just then the Holy Prophet ﷺ entered the room and due to the stream of light flowing from His blessed face, I found the needle.” [Khasaais-ul-Kubra Pg.156 Vol.1 Hujatul’laahi Alal Aalameen Pg.688 – Al Qaulul Bad’i Pg.147]

  • Mulla Ali Qaari and Allama Jalalud’deen Suyuti (radi Al’laahu anhum) narrated that Ummul Mo’mineen Aisha Siddiqa radi Al’laahu anha) says,

“In total dark nights, I used to put the thread into the eye of a needle with the help of the Noor (light) of the Holy Prophetﷺ .” [Shara Shifa Hashia Naseemur Riyaz Pg.328 Vol.1]

  • The cousin of the Holy Prophetﷺ,  Hazrat Abdullah ibn Abbas(رضي الله عنه)  says that the Holy Prophet  is Noor. He was always in and out of the house of the Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ .

The uncle of the Holy Prophetﷺ , Hazrat Abbas(رضي الله عنه)  also says that the Holy Prophetﷺ  is Noor. Those nurses who fed the Beloved Prophet ﷺ and saw him eating and drinking, those nurses in whose home the Beloved Prophetﷺ  lived, walked, ate and drank etc; also believed that the Holy Prophetﷺ  is Noor. Those blessed aunts of the Holy Prophetﷺ  who saw his wives, his children, and who saw him eat and drink and who observed the way he lived his life, all believed that he is Noor and not an ordinary human being.

  • Sayyida Aisha Siddiqa (radi Al’laahu anha) was the one that the Sahaba respected so dearly that after the Holy Prophet (sall Al’laahu alaihi wasallam) passed from this world, they queried from her the solutions to their problems.

Even though she was the respected and blessed wife of the Holy Prophet Muhammadﷺ  she still accepted him ﷺ to be Noor.

  • Hazrat Imam Azam Abu Hanifa(رضي الله عنه)  states the following in the most praised court of the Holy Prophet ﷺ

“You are such a Noor that the full Moon is brightened by your Noor and you are with your beauty and elegance a shining sun.” [Qasidatun Nu’maan Pg.23]

Clear evidence from the sayings of the Sahaba-e-Kiraam, the Ahle Bait-e-Athaar (radi Al’laahu Anhuma), and from the books of the distinguished Muhaditheen have been presented. After examining them, it is as clear and obvious as the brightness of day that although they possessed knowledge of the eating, drinking, wives and children of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammadﷺ  they all still believed without any doubt that he is Noor.
