No Prophet Mohamed was not a deity nor do we believe he was divine. He was a human being. Allah is the only deity we believe in and worship.

The hadith "Seek Knowledge even if you have to go as far as china" is fabricated and does not exist. The actual hadith is: The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.’” (220. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan Ibn Maajah) I can confirm this from our local ...

Say," I am just a human being like you. It has been revealed to me that your God is the One God. So whoever expects to encounter his Lord let him act righteously, and not associate anyone with the worship of his Lord." (18:110) This is the last verse of Surah Cave which is clearly stating that Prophet Muhammad is just a human being like anyone else, ...

Prophets, according to the Qur'an, are infallible. This doesn't mean that they can't commit sin, rather it means that they won't because they are of the highest spiritual and intellectual consciousness. As for mistakes, they don't make mistakes in religious matters either, however there have been debates regarding mistakes in non-religious matters. In ...

The Quranic verse 19:28 is: يَا أُخْتَ هَارُونَ مَا كَانَ أَبُوكِ امْرَأَ سَوْءٍ وَمَا كَانَتْ أُمُّكِ بَغِيًّا Ya okhta haroona ma kana abooki imraa sawin wama kanat ommuki baghiyyan The Arabic word used here is similar to the Hewbrew word אָחוֹת (achowth), its usage is explained in Gesenius' Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon as: Source: Blue Letter Bible, scan on ...

@Ali has mentioned the social political connections, but I would like to elaborate more: It has come partly from here but it is in Persian. Your question is basically why god has let the Prophet marry Aisha? The answer is that it has been for political reasons. The prophet (pbuh), to reach better status socially and politically, in order to advertise and ...

NOTE. parts of my answer is from Shia perspective. You can find some useful info from Wikipedia on the English, Arabic and Persian entries on the Hadeeth of the two weighty (or precious) things. These pages each has a different content, e.g. the English page shows some Sunni and Shia versions of the Hadeeth, one Sunni version of which is the one you have ...

NOTE: Some scholars say that *Wearing any ring is not Sunnah since the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) used to wear a ring for signing letters sent to other kings. Because they told him that kings would not accept any letter that has not been signed. Hence, Scholars say it is Sunnah for those who use it to sign papers and documents. And some say it is Sunnah even ...

The article speaks about some different places, so I answer separately: Ka'aba: As it is pointed to in the article, according to both Islam and history, Ka'aba was built by Ibrahim, who was a monotheist and a prophet of God. He built Ka'aba as a place for worship of Allah. But years after Ibrahim died, it was converted to a place for idols and idolatry. ...

Well, the obvious (and rather useless) answer is that English letters weren't much of a commodity back in seventh-century Arabia, so they tended to use Arabic instead: The only correct way to spell the Prophet's name is محمد‎. Phonetically, "Muhammad" is probably the most accurate romanization of the ones you listed, but even then it loses a lot. The Arabic ...

The site you are quoting does not mention which book by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya they are referring to, and I could not find this hadith in any of his books. Nonetheless, it is in Hulyat al-Awliyā' (Arabic: حلية الأولياء وطبقات الأصفياء) by Abu Nu'aym al-Asbahani, Vol. 1, pp. 369, as mentioned — in addition to his other book Siyar as-Salaf as-Sālihīn (Arabic: ...

If you are an arabic reader check this article from IslamWeb(which can also be translated to English) that states that the persons who washed the Prophet were: the prophet's family members who were: Al-Abbas, Ali, Al-Fadl and Kuthm (Al Abbas' sons), Shakran (the prophet's servant), Usama bin Zaid, and Aous bin Khawlah. However they washed him wearing his ...

Yes of course the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon) followed the Shariah, as well as he was given certain privileges no other got. The context in which GoldPseudo said that, was that of marriage, and that was that he was allowed more then four wives, where we can only marry four at one time, indicating that we can most likely handle four at a time and ...

The word 'Allah' as a God was well known at the time of the pagan Arabs (and perhaps even more backward in the history). In fact they even believed Allah to be the creator and sustainer: If indeed thou ask them who has created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon (to his Law), they will certainly reply, “Allah”. [...] And if ...

Muslims divided into two teams because of this: The first team A.k.a Shia are who believe that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) selected Ali ibn Abi Talib as a caliph after him in various situations, the most famous one is Hadith Al-Ghadeer: O people, Allah the Most Kind the Omniscient has told me that no apostle lives to more than half the age of him who ...

No one in this life can see Allah, as He said: لاَ تُدْرِكُهُ الأَبْصَارُ وَهُوَ يُدْرِكُ الأَبْصَارَ وَهُوَ اللَّطِيفُ الخَبِيرُ Vision perceives Him not, but He perceives [all] vision; and He is the Subtle, the Acquainted. Suratul An'aam Ayat 103 The Prophet ﷺ never saw Allah with his eyes, it is narrated that A'ishah (May Allah be please ...

No there is no contradiction, Allah says: عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ فَلَا يُظْهِرُ عَلَىٰ غَيْبِهِ أَحَدًا (26) إِلَّا مَنِ ارْتَضَىٰ مِن رَّسُولٍ فَإِنَّهُ يَسْلُكُ مِن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ رَصَدًا [He is] Knower of the unseen, and He does not disclose His [knowledge of the] unseen to anyone (26) Except whom He has approved of messengers, ...

The whole story (according to the narration quoted in tarykh at-Tabari) has heavy weaknesses, so most scholars consider it as fabricated.

(Ahl al-Sunnah View) Its the responsibility of the state to handle this as blasphemy against the Prophet is a punishable crime under Shariah. There can be two cases of a person who does this: The person is a Muslim subject of the Islamic state The person is a non-Muslim subject of the Islamic state (Dhimmi) In the first case: there is consensus among ...

This question could have been put more politely and you could have asked about circumstances of death of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) instead of making offensive, far-fetched judgements. I really wish the question is edited. Coming to the question, if you had been sincere, you would have found the other version of the hadeeth narrating the complete ...

Infallible if it means incapable of committing sins NO! Neither him --peace be upon him and his household-- nor any other prophet or Imam, none were such.

For Shia view: What was her name? Khadijah (AS) How did the Prophet come to know her? The Prophet Mohammad(sawwas) was not hired by Khadijah(as) for her trade. Frankly He was a merchant sharing trading with Khadijah(as). How old was she? She was 25 years old when she got married with Prophet Mohammad(sawwas) Who was her father? Khwailid son of Asad ...

Only Allah heals! What Allah did with Yusuf was to show his blessings. God may do whatever he wants with the method he chooses. No cloth or even a man can heal or do out of Allah's willing. A believer seeks healthiness from Allah, and follow available medicine according to our prophets teachings.

Yes, they are allowed to say whatever they want until their death. After that, in the Judgement Day, Allah will give their punishment for their sins. You are basically not authorized to attack them. But, you should defend your religion, without exceeding the limit. What is the limit? It is what they do. If they attack with their tongue, you should defend ...
