‘Aqa’id : Nabuwwah

Statement of Beliefs regarding Nabuwwah {Prophethood}

Prophets were sent by ALlāh to the world for the guidance of humanity.They are all free from blemishes and sins.

The actual number of Prophets is only known by ALlāh Alone.

To establish their truthfulness, ALlāh made difficult events happen through them, which no ordinary man can imitate. Such events are known as mu’jazah (miracles).

The first of the Prophets to be sent to mankind is Hazrat ‘Adam (‘alaihis salam) and the final Prophet is Hazrat Muhammad Mustapha (salla’Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

The rest of the Prophets were sent in-between. Some of whom mentioned in the Qur’an by name are: Idris; Nuh; Ibrahim; Lut; Isma’il; Is’haq; Ya’qub; Yusuf; Ayyub; Shu’aib; Musa; Haroon; Dhul-Kifl; Da’wuud; Sulaiman; Ilyas; Yunus; Zakariyah; Yahya; ‘Isa (‘alaihus salatu as salam).

ALlāh has not revealed the exact number of the Prophets to anyone; part of our belief is to have faith in all of the Prophets, those known and those unknown.

Of all the Prophets the position of some are far more exalted then others. The most exalted is our Prophet: Hazrat Muhammad Mustapha (salla’Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).

No new Prophet will come after him and he (salla’Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is the Prophet of all those to be born till the Day of Judgment.

While awake the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustapha (salla’Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was taken by ALlāh in his physical body from Makkah to Bait-ul-Muqaddas in al-Quds. And from there through the seven Heavens up to wherever ALlāh Willed and back. This is known as al-Mi’raj (The Ascension).
