The Beloved Nabi ﷺ knows (Fifth and final episode)

Imam Zurqaani رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1122 AH) stated: Our Revered and Renowned Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم knows Ghayb. (He رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه further stated): Wherever there is the denial of the attainment of Ghayb-knowledge for anyone (in the Holy Quran), it refers to the Ghayb-knowledge that is specific to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ Who has this knowledge on His own without any means and without being given by anyone. However, the Divinely-bestowed Ghayb-knowledge of the Holy Nabi Muhammad Mustafa صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is proved by the blessed Ayah of the Holy Quran ‘اِلَّا مَنِ ارْتَضٰى مِنْ رَّسُوْلٍ[1]. (Zurqaani ‘alal Mawahib, vol. 10, pp. 112)

The commentator of the Holy Quran ‘Allamah Sulayman Jamal رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1204 AH) stated: The great knowledge of our Beloved and Blessed Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is vaster than that of humans, jinns and angels because Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has bestowed the knowledge of the entire universe upon him. ‘علوم اولین و آخرین، وما کان وما یکون’ i.e. the knowledge of whatever has happened and whatever will happen as well as all the knowledge of former and latter people has been bestowed upon him. The mere fact that he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is the greatest scholar of the Holy Quran among all humans is sufficient to prove the vastness of his knowledge because Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has said, ‘We have not left anything out of this Book’. (Futuhaat-e-Ahmadiyyah, pp. 53)

The author of the Quranic commentary ‘Ruh-ul-Bayan’ ‘Allamah Isma’eel Haqqi رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1127 AH) stated:

معنى شهادة الرسول عليهم اطلاعه على رتبة كل متدين بدينه وحقيقته التی هو عليها من دينه وحجابه الذی هو به محجوب عن كمال دينه فهو يعرف ذنوبهم وحقيقة ايمانهم واعمالهم وحسناتهم وسيآتهم واخلاصهم ونفاقهم وغير ذلك بنور الحق

Evidence for Muslims from the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم means that he صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّمknows the religious rank of every religious person as well as the hurdle in his higher rank in religion. He صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم also knows the sins of Muslims, the essence of their Iman, good and bad deeds, sincerity, hypocrisy and other things by means of the Divine Noor. (Ruh-ul-Bayan, vol. 1, pp. 248; summarised)

Hujjat-ul-Islam Sayyiduna Imam Muhammad Ghazali رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 505 AH) stated:

أن له صفة بها يدرك ما سيكون فى الغيب إما فى اليقظة

أو فى المنام إذ بها يطالع اللوح المحفوظ فيرى ما فيه من الغيب

Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ has bestowed an attribute upon blessed Ambiya عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلَام. By virtue of it, they are blessed with Ghayb-knowledge either in the state of dream or in wakefulness. By means of this Divinely-bestowed attribute, they study the Lawh-e-Mahfuz and this is how they are made aware of knowledge about Ghayb-related things mentioned in the Lawh-e-Mahfuz. (Ihya-ul-‘Uloom, vol. 4, pp. 240)

‘Allamah Shaykh Ahmad Saawi Maliki رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1241 AH) stated:

أن رسول اللّٰە لم ينتقل من الدنيا حتى أعلمه اللّٰە بجميع المغيبات التی تحصل فی الدنيا والآخرة، فهو يعلمها كما هی عين يقين، لما ورد: ”رفعت لی الدنيا فأنا أنظر فيها كما أنظر إلى كفی هذه،“ ورد أنه اطلع على الجنة وما فيها، والنار وما فيها، وغير ذلك مما تواترت به الأخبار، ولكن أمر بكتمان البعض

Indeed the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم did not depart this life unless blessed by Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ with the knowledge of all matters of Ghayb of the world and the Hereafter. The Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم had the knowledge of all Ghayb-related things as he had seen them with his own eyes, as stated in a blessed Hadees, ‘The world was lifted for me, so I saw it as I am seeing this palm of mine’. The Greatest and Noblest Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم was informed about Heaven and Hell and things in them. Furthermore, there are consecutively reported narrations about other matters. However, he was commanded to hide some of those things. (Tafseer Saawi, vol. 1, pp. 733)

A great saint of his time Sayyiduna ‘Abdul ‘Azeez Dabbaagh Hasani رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه (who passed away in 1132 AH) stated:

ھو صلَّی اللّٰە علیە وسلَّم لا یخفی علیە شیء من الخمس المذکورۃ فی الاٰیة الشریفة وکیف یخفی علیە ذالك والاقطاب السبعة من امتە الشریفة یعلمونھا وھم دون الغوث فکیف بالغوث فکیف بسید الاولین والاٰخرین الذی ھو سبب کل شیء ومنە کل شئ

The five things mentioned in the blessed Ayah (are as follows: The time of the occurrence of the Judgement Day, the time of raining, the gender of the baby in the womb, what will a person do the next day and where will he die?) Nothing from among these five things is hidden from the Beloved and Blessed Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Moreover, Seven Qutb in the great Ummah of the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم also know these things. And these Qutb are not even Ghaus. Then will be the rank of a Ghauswill be! And now imagine! How great and glorious the rank of the Holy Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم will be who is the chief of all former and latter people! He صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is the Wasilah of everything and everything is from his Wasilah. (Al-Abreez, vol. 2, pp. 310)

In order to get detailed information about the Ghayb-knowledge of our Beloved and Blessed Nabi صَلَّى اللّٰەُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, it is very useful to read the following books and booklets:

خَالِصُ الْاِعْتِقَاد    1: (It is a great book containing 120 proofs of Ghayb-knowledge).

اِنْبَاءُ الْمُصْطَفٰی بِحَالِ سِرٍّ وَاَخْفٰی    2: (i.e. proof of the knowledge of ‘مَا کَانَ وَمَا یَکُوْنُ’ being bestowed upon him).

اِزَاحَةُ الْعَیْبِ بِسَیْفِ الْغَیْبِ    3: (i.e. proofs of the knowledge of Ghayb and confutation of misguided beliefs-holding people. Author: A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه. In order to read the above-mentioned three booklets, study the 29th volume of Fatawa Razawiyyah).

اَلکَلِمَةُ العُلیَا    4: (Author: Sadr-ul-Afadil Maulana Na’eemuddin Muradabadi رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه and ‘جَاءَ الحَق’, author: A great thinker of the Ummah Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan رَحْمَةُ اللّٰەِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه).
