Holy Rasool ﷺ knows! (Episode – 04)

The Ghayb-knowledge of the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in the light of the opinions of Islamic scholars, saints and blessed scholars of Hadees

The Ghayb-knowledge of the Holy Nabi Muhammad Mustafa صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has been mentioned in the light of the Holy Quran and Ahadees in the magazines published in the previous months. Let’s now brighten our hearts and minds in the light of opinions and explanations on the part of Islamic scholars, saints and Hadees scholars. These proofs of the Ghayb-knowledge of the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم will illuminate our hearts.

 ٭Sayyiduna Abu Zar Ghifari رَضِىَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْهُ stated, ‘The Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم got separated from us [i.e. he passed away] in such a state that there was not a single bird that fluttered its wings but was not mentioned by him to us.’ (Al-Mu’jam-ul-Kabeer, vol. 2, pp. 155, Hadees 1647)

Commenting on it, the commentator of the book Sahih Bukhari Imam Ahmad Bin Muhammad Qastalani رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 923 AH) stated:

لاشک ان ﷲ تعالٰی قد اطلعہ  علٰی ازید من ذٰلك والقی علیہ علم الاولین والاخرین

Indeed Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has undoubtedly bestowed knowledge upon him even more than that and blessed him with the knowledge of all former and latter people. (Mawahib-ul-Ladunniyyah, vol. 3, pp. 95)

 ٭Sayyiduna Shaykh ‘Abdul Haq Muhaddis Dihlvi رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1052 AH) stated: The Beloved and Blessed Nabi صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has been made aware of whatever has existed in the world since the era of Sayyiduna Aadam عَلَيْهِ السَّلَام as well as whatever will exist till the blowing of the trumpet. He صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has been blessed with the knowledge of all affairs from beginning to end. He صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم also gave the news of some of them to his companions. (Madarij-un-Nubuwwah, Juz: 1, vol. 1, pp. 144)

 ٭Imam Muhammad Buseeri رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 840 AH) stated in Qasidah Burdah:

فَاِنَّ مِنْ جُوْدِكَ الدُّنْیَا وَضَرَّتَھَا                                                                          وَمِنْ عُلُوْمِكَ عِلْمَ اللَّوْحِ وَالْقَلَمٖ

That is, Ya Rasoolallah صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم! The world and the Hereafter are only a portion of your generosity. The knowledge of the Lawh and Qalam (that includes the knowledge of whatever has happened and will happen) is a part of your knowledge.

Commenting on it, ‘Allamah ‘Ali Qaari رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1014 AH) stated:

کون علمھما من علومہ صلی اللہ تعالٰی علیہ وسلم ان علومہ تتنوع الی الکلیات والجزئیات وحقائق ودقائق وعوارف ومعارف تتعلق بالذات والصفات وعلمھما انما یکون سطرا من سطور علمہ ونھرًا من بحور علمہ ثم مع ھذا ھو من برکة وجودہ

(Az-Zubdah fi Sharh-il-Burdah, pp. 58)

 ٭Imam Ahmad Bin Muhammad known as Ibn Hajar Makki Shaafi’i رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 974 AH) stated:

ان اللہ تعالٰی اطلعہ لیلة الاسراء علی جمیع ما فی اللوح

المحفوظ، وزادہ علوما آخر کالاسرار المتعلقة بذاتہ سبحانہ وتعالٰی وصفاتہ

On the night of Ascension, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bestowed all such knowledge upon our Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم which is saved in the Lawh-e-Mahfuz. In addition, other knowledge was also bestowed upon him; such as knowledge of the secrets about the Being and Attributes of Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. (Al-‘Umdah fi Sharh-il-Burdah, pp. 669)

٭  ‘Allamah Ibraheem Bin Muhammad Baajuri رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1277 AH) stated:

انه صلَّی اللہ علیہ وسلم لم یخرج من الدنیا الا بعد ان اعلمہ اللہ تعالٰی بھذہ الامور (الخمسة)

The Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم did not depart this life unless blessed by Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ with the knowledge of five Ghayb-matters (i.e. the time of the occurrence of the Judgement Day, time of raining, the gender of the baby in the womb, what will a person do the next day and where will he die) (Haashiya-tul-Baajuri ‘alal Burdah, pp. 92)

٭  ‘Allamah Muhammad Bin ‘Abdullah Dimyaati رَحْمَةُ اللہِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1331 AH) stated:

والحق ان اللہ سبحانہ و تعالٰی لم یقبض نبینا صلَّی اللہ علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم

حتی اطلعہ علی کل ما ابھمہ علیہ الا انہ امر بکتم البعض والاعلام بالبعض

The truth is that Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ bestowed the knowledge of every such thing upon the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللہُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم before his demise which was hidden from him. However, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ commanded him to hide the knowledge of some of those things and to make people aware of some of them. (Sharh Arba’een-in-Nawaviyyah, pp. 48)
