Our Prophet ﷺ is the Greatest Prophet

Four great peculiarities of Beloved Rasool

1. Greatest personage amongst creation

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is greater than all creation even to all angels, Prophets and Rasools. (Mawahib-ul-Ladunniyyah, vol. 2, pp. 288 – Bahar-e-Shari’at, vol. 1, pp. 63)

Sab say aula-o-a’la hamara Nabi

Sab say baala-o-wala hamara Nabi

Khalq say Awliya Awliya say Rusul

Aur Rasoolon say a’la hamara Nabi

(Hadaiq-e-Bakhshish, pp. 138)

There is a booklet named, ‘تَجَلِّی الْیَقِیْن بِاَنَّ نَبِیَّنَاسَیِّدُ الْمُرْسَلِیْن’ in Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 30 in which A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza رَحْمَةُ اللّٰهِ عَلَيْه has proved this fact by several blessed Ayahs, more than one hundred blessed Ahadees and a large number of sayings of blessed companions عَلَیْھِمُ الرِّضْوَان and blessed Islamic scholars رَحِمَهُمُ الـلّٰـه. For attaining blessing, please read a blessed Ayah and a saying of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم:

Elevated in rank       

Allah Almighty has stated:

تِلْكَ الرُّسُلُ فَضَّلْنَا بَعْضَهُمْ عَلٰى بَعْضٍۘ-مِنْهُمْ مَّنْ كَلَّمَ اللّٰهُ وَ رَفَعَ بَعْضَهُمْ دَرَجٰتٍؕ

These are Messengers; that We have exalted one above the other; amongst them is one with whom Allah spoke, and one is that whom (Allah) elevated in rank above all.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 3, Surah Al-Baqarah, Ayah 253)

Great Islamic scholars have said, ‘Here ‘بعض’ means the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Mentioning in this way indicates clearly the disclosure of his great excellence and the popularity of his blessed leadership, i.e. whether his blessed name is mentioned or not, it is his blessed personality to which our attention will shift and there is no other thought that will come into our mind. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 30, pp. 151)

Chief of all men

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said, ‘On the Judgement Day, I am the chief of all men and I do not say this thing proudly; in my hand will be Liwa-e-Hamd (i.e. the flag of Hamd) and I do not say it proudly. On that day, Sayyiduna Aadam عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام and all the Prophets besides him will be under my flag. I will be the first who will come out of his grave and I am not mentioning this thing proudly. (Tirmizi, vol. 5, pp. 354, Hadees 3635)

Belief that is definitive and proved by the consensus of Islamic scholars

A’la Hadrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has said, ‘The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is superior to all Rasools and the chief of all the former and the later ones. This belief is definitive, confirmed, sure and certain. It is the belief that has been proved by the consensus of Islamic scholars. (Fatawa Razawiyyah, vol. 30, pp. 131)

Khuda kay ba’d afzal jana tum ko dau ‘aalam say

Yehi to hay hamara Deen-o-Iman Ya Rasoolallah

(Qabala-e-Bakhshish, pp. 227)

2. Prohibited from calling Beloved Rasool  outside his private rooms

Calling the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم from outside his private rooms has been declared to be Haraam.(Kashf-ul-Ghummah, vol. 2, pp. 62)

Allah Almighty has stated:

اِنَّ الَّذِیْنَ یُنَادُوْنَكَ مِنْ وَّرَآءِ الْحُجُرٰتِ اَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا یَعْقِلُوْنَ(۴)

Indeed those who call you from outside (your) private rooms, most of them do not have any sense (regarding your lofty status).

 [Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 26, Surah Al-Hujurat, Ayah 4)

Advised to wait

If someone had to request from the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, Allah Almighty taught him this manner [in the Holy Quran] that he should wait and when the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم himself would come out of his private rooms, he should make his request. Allah Almighty has stated in the next blessed Ayah after the above-mentioned Ayah:

وَ لَوْ اَنَّهُمْ صَبَرُوْا حَتّٰى تَخْرُ جَ اِلَیْهِمْ لَكَانَ خَیْرًا لَّهُمْؕ-وَ اللّٰهُ غَفُوْرٌ رَّحِیْمٌ(۵)

And had they been patient until you yourself would come out (from your rooms) to them, so it would have been better for them. And Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)] (Part 26, Surah Al-Hujurat, Ayah 5)

Allah Almighty has taught the manners of Beloved Rasool’s court

Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has said, ‘It has become obvious that the manners of the courts of worldly kings have been made by humans, but the manners of the blessed court of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم have been made by Allah Almighty and have been taught (to us) by Allah Almighty. Further, these manners are not only for humans, but rather for jinns, humans and angels all. Angels would also enter the blessed home of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم after obtaining permission. These manners are then forever. (Tafseer-e-Noor-ul-‘Irfan, part 26, Surah Al-Hujurat, Taht-al-Ayah 4) 

3. Spoils of war have been made Halal

For the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم and his Ummah, the spoils of war have been made Halal. They were not Halal for anyone before. (Zurqaani ‘alal Mawahib, vol. 7, pp. 228)

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: ‘اُحِلَّتْ لِیَ الْمَغَانِمُ وَلَمْ تَحِلَّ لِاَحَدٍ قَبْلِیْ’ i.e. The spoils of war have been made Halal for me and they were not Halal for anyone before me. (Bukhari, vol. 1, pp. 133, Hadees 335)

4. Sayyiduna Israfeel عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام came to Beloved Rasool

Sayyiduna Israfeel عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام only came to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. He عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام did not come to any other Prophet before the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. (Mawahib-ul-Ladunniyyah, vol. 2, pp. 287)

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said, ‘An angel from the sky came to me who neither came to any Prophet before me nor will come after me. The name of the angel is Israfeel, and Jibraeel عَـلَيْـهِما الـسَّـلَام was also with that angel. After Salaam, the angel said, ‘I have come to you with this message from your Lord: If you want, you can become a submissive prophet and if you want, you can become a king prophet.’ I looked at Jibraeel عَـلَيْـهِ الـسَّـلَام, so he gestured me to choose humbleness. I replied, ‘I want to become a submissive Prophet.’ (He صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم further said:) ‘If I had said to become a king Prophet, mountains after turning into gold would walk with me.’(Mu’jam-e-Kabeer, vol. 12, pp. 267, Hadees 13309)

Koh ho jayain agar chaaho to sona chaandi

Sangrayzay banayn dinar-o-dirham ki soorat
