High Status Of Prophet Muhammad.

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

In Ayat 6 of Surat Fussilat of the Holy Qur'an (41:6), Allahu Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says:--

           "SAY (O Muhammad) : I AM BUT A MAN LIKE YOU, WHO IS DIVINELY INSPIRED THAT YOUR god IS BUT ONE GOD."

The catchy phrase in this verse (ayat) shows us that the Noble Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, was a completely different sort of human being from anyone else, then and now. For none of us can say he is Divinely inspired as the Messenger was. Rather, as Sayyadi Busari, may Allah be Merciful to him, said in his Qasida al-Burda (Ode of the Prophetic Mantle):--

                                  Muhammad is a human being, but not like humankind;

                                 He sis a ruby, while ordinary people are as stones.

Just as a piece of iron when exposed and immersed in tremendous heat of fire annihilates its own identity and become lost in the colour and quality of fire, similarly the Messenger, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, in the Fire of Divine Love lost his own self- hood and attained to his highest degree of Khilafat or ambassador; and thus through him the attributes of Allah were made manifest. Thus his seeing, hearing, speaking and doing is that of the Divine's. That is why Allah say about the Prophet:--

                                        "O My Beloved Prophet, you did not slay them, but Allah slayed them; and in no way did

                                           you throw when you threw, but Allah threw." (8:17)

 

                                        "The Prophet doesn't speak out of own volition, his speech is the speech of Allah." (53:3)

 

                                         "Truly, the ones who give bayah (allegiance) to you, in reality give bayah only to Allah;

                                         The Hand of Allah is above their hands." (48:10)

From these verses, we can clearly see that through Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, the beautiful Names (asma) and Attributes (sifat) were manifested fully, that is why following him is made equivalent of following Allah Ta'ala. Thus the Qur'an declares:

                                                   "He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah." (4:80)

 

     ALLAHUMMA SALLI ALAA SAYYADINA MUHAMMAD...AN-NABIYY UMMIYY, WA-ALAA  AHLIHI, WA-ASHABIHI  WA-SALAM,  TASLIMAN-KASIRAA ABADAA.
