One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
ASSALAMWALEKUM . i am one of the person who is receiving your Hadis mail by my friend, i have read the following words in your Answers:-
Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Do you all think that we should say (Park MUHAMMED S.A.W ) as a Slave - Servant. ALLAH has made him from his NOOR and in this Qaiynath there is no one dearer as he is.

PM is slave servant of Allah
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: Do you all think that we should say (Park MUHAMMED S.A.W ) as a Slave - Servant.
Allah Subhanah is the Absolute Creator, Owner and Master of everything that is in existence! He Created everything, thus all of His created beings are in effect His slaves! All the Angels are His slaves, all the Jinns are His slaves, and all of mankind are His slaves! And that includes every human being, from the first man to be sent on this earth to the last each and every human being is the slave of Allah Subhanah!
Allah says in the Glorious Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 172:
Christ disdaineth not to be a slave-servant of Allah, nor do the Angels those nearest (to Allah): those who disdain His worship (or slavery) and are arrogant, He will gather them all together unto Himself to (answer).
The Arabic term for slave is Abd. And there are several places in the Holy Quran where Allah Subhanah has honored and called not only Prophet Mohamed (saws) as His slave; but has also honored almost all the Prophets of Allah by calling them His slaves! To be called a slave of the Merciful is indeed an honor and none of the creation of Allah who sincerely believe in Him, ever disdain being called as His slaves. Those among mankind and jinns, who disdain to be called the slaves of the Merciful and are arrogant; Allah has warned that they will have a severe accounting in His Court on an Inevitable Day!
Indeed, the noble Prophet Mohamed (saws) is both, a slave-servant of Allah, as well as the Last and Final Messenger of Allah (saws)!
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 23:
And if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our slave-servant (Prophet Mohamed (saws)) then produce a Surah like thereunto; and call your witnesses or helpers (if there are any) besides Allah if your (doubts) are true.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 8 Surah Anfaal verse 41:
And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war) a fifth share is assigned to Allah and to the apostle and to near relatives orphans the needy and the wayfarer if ye do believe in Allah and in the revelation We sent down to Our slave-servant (Prophet Mohamed (saws)) on the day of testing, the day of the meeting of the two forces. For Allah hath power over all things.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 1:
Praise be to Allah Who hath sent to His slave-servant (Prophet Mohamed (saws)) the Book and hath allowed therein no Crookedness.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verse 1:
Glory to (Allah) Who did take His slave-servant (Prophet Mohamed (saws)) for Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque whose precincts We did Bless in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the one Who heareth and seeth (all things).
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 25 Surah Furqaan verse 1:
Blessed is He Who sent down the Criterion to His slave-servant (Prophet Mohamed (saws)) that it may be an admonition to all creatures.
Not only has Allah honored and called Prophet Mohamed (saws) His slave-servant; the Merciful has called almost all the Prophets His slaves in His Glorious Quran.
For Jesus Christ (a.s.):
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 19 Surah Maryam vrese 30:
He (Jesus) said: "I am indeed a slave-servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 43 Surah Zukhruf verse 59:
He (Jesus) was no more than a slave-servant: We granted Our favor to him and We made him an example to the Children of Israel.
For Prophet Noah (a.s.):
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 54 Surah Qamar verse 3:
Before them the People of Noah rejected (their apostle): they rejected Our slave- servant and said "Here is one possessed!" and he was driven out.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verse 3:
ye that are sprung from those whom We carried (in the
For Prophet Dawood (a.s.):
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 38 Surah Saad verse 17:
Have patience at what they say and remember Our slave-servant Dawood, the man of strength: for he ever turned (to Allah).
For Prophets Abraham (a.s.), and Ishaaq (a.s.), and Yaqoob (a.s.):
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 38 Surah Saad verse 45:
And commemorate Our slave-servants Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, possessors of Power and Vision.
For Prophet Sulaimaan (a.s.):
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 38 Surah Saad verse 30:
To David We gave Solomon (for a son) how excellent a slave-servant! Ever did he turn (to Us)!
These Prophets are without an iota of a doubt, amongst the very best and the noblest of all the creations of Allah Subhanah, and there is or can be no bigger honor than for one in creation to be called and recognized as a slave-servant (Abd) of the Creator!
Your Statement: ALLAH has made him from his NOOR and in this Qaiynath there is no one dearer as he is.
Beloved brother in Islam, it is indeed true that none in creation is dearer to Allah Subhanah and also to the believers than the self of the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws).
But it is an absolutely incorrect notion and belief to believe that Prophet Mohamed (saws) was created from the Noor of Allah Subhanah!
Allah Subhanah clearly Declares in the Quran that He created the first human being of clay and created his progeny from a nature of fluid. Prophet Mohamed (saws) was, without an iota of a doubt, a bashar (human being), and thus he (saws) was NOT created from noor like the angels. There is absolutely no truth to the statement that the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws) was created from Noor or Light!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 32 Surah As-Sajdah verses 7-8:
7 He Who has made everything which He has created most Good. He began the creation of man with (nothing more than) clay.
8 And made his progeny from a quintessence of the nature of a fluid despised.
Some people, in their excess, try to hold and spread such false beliefs that the Prophet (saws) was not created like the other human beings, and thus try to propagate that he (saws) was created like the Angels from noor or light! Because they believe that if the Prophet (saws) was only a human being, then what would be the difference between him and other human beings? So, in their excess, they try to invent falsehoods and say things about the Prophet (saws) and his self which have absolutely no basis in reality! People who claim such falsehood, in their excess and their ignorance, try to belittle the noble Prophet (saws) by claiming he was created from noor! The greatness and significance of the Noble Prophet (saws) lies in the fact that he, like all the other human beings, was created from clay, possessed the nature of a human being, and was bestowed with a free will to choose like every human being; and the Noble Prophet (saws) chose to submit himself unconditionally to His Supreme Lord and Creator.
Had he (saws) been created from noor, he would have been an angel, who do not possess the nature of human beings, do not have to fight temptation like the humans, and do not possess a free will to choose between obedience and disobedience! Greatness and magnificence is when one is bestowed with the weak nature of man, and this human being chooses to remain an obedient slave of his Lord and Creator!
Allah Subhanah has Himself commanded the Prophet (saws) to declare in the Glorious Quran, that he (saws) is no more than a bashar (human being); the only difference being that he (saws) has been chosen as a Messenger of Allah, is directly inspired and guided by Allah Subhanah, and receives Revelations from the Lord of the Worlds.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 110:
Say (O Prophet) : "I am but a bashar (human) like yourselves (but) the inspiration has come to me: that your Allah is one Allah: whoever expects to meet his Lord, let him work righteousness, and in the worship of his Lord admit no one as partner."
The greatness and significance of the Noble Prophet (saws) lies in the fact that he, like all the other human beings, was created from clay, possessed the nature of a human being, and was bestowed with a free will to choose between obedience and disobedience like every human being; and the Noble Prophet (saws) chose to submit himself unconditionally to His Supreme Lord and Creator.
Beloved brother in Islam, we assure you that there is absolutely nothing in the Quran or Sunnah which even implies that the Messenger of Allah (saws) was created from Noor; on the contrary the Glorious Quran clearly declares that the Prophet (saws) was no more than a bashar (human being) and like all human beings, he (saws) too was created from clay.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verse 77-78:
O you who have believed, do rukooh (bow down) and do sajdah (prostration), and worship your Lord Allah Alone, and do righteous deeds: it may be that you attain true success! Exert your utmost for the cause of Allah, as one should. He has chosen you for His service, and has not laid on you any hardship in your religion. Therefore, be steadfast in the religion of your father Abraham. Allah had named you muslims before this, and has named you (muslims) in this Quran also, so that the Messenger may be a witness in regard to you, and you may be witnesses in regard to the rest of mankind.
Allah is our witness sister, our guidance is based on no particular sect, but rather on the two Divine sources of Guidance alone:
- The Glorious Quran
- The authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
The true believers should be honored to be recognized by the name their Lord and Creator, Allah Subhanah has Himself chosen for the believers; ie. muslims without adding any self-invented and man-made prefixes to it like Sunnis, Shias, etc.
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 171 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr
Allah's Messenger (saws) said: There will befall my Ummah exactly (all those) evils which befell the people of Isra'il, so much so that if there was one amongst them who openly committed fornication with his mother there will be among my Ummah one who will do that, and if the people of Isra'il were fragmented into seventy-two sects my Ummah will be fragmented into seventy-three sects. All of them will be in Hell Fire except one sect. They (the Companions) said: O Allah's Messenger (saws), which is that? Whereupon he (saws) said: It is one to which I and my companions belong.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
