Quran mentioned Hakim Luqman for his wisdom. Does Hakim Luqman was a prophet of his time?


There is no explicit textual evidence about prophethood being given to him, within the Quran or Hadith. Most exegetes held that he was a saint and not a prophet, however some have held that he was a prophet. The same is the case with Dhul Qarnayn, Khidr, Maryam and some other personalities mentioned in the Quran.


ولهذا كان جمهور السلف على أنه لم يكن نبيا
