False Beliefs Held by Muslims About the Prophet Mohammed

Posted: July 15, 2018 by millatibraheem in Bid'ah, Innovated Sects, Rebuttals

We will discuss some false beliefs Muslims have about the Prophet Mohammed and will later show the correct understanding.

According to Ahlul Sunnah (Sunnis), Shi’atul ‘Ali (Shias), and other sects, the Prophet:

1. Muhammad was the best man to have walked on Earth

2. Muhammad had many miracles

3. Muhammad is Allah’s friend

4. Muhammad is the reason Allah created the world

5. Muhammad is the best and highest ranked Messenger

6. Muhammad will have the highest rank in Heaven

7. Muhammad will intercede for his followers on the day of Judgement

8. Muhammad is the best guide

9. Muhammad can hear us and is alive

10. Muhammad is the best means to gain nearness to God (waseelah in Arabic)

Every single one of these beliefs is wrong and contrary to the Quran and authentic narratives.

Muslims have fallen into the same trap like the Jews and Christians have done in regards to extremely exaggerating individual statuses and innovating beliefs which were not part of the original scriptural teachings.

There was nothing supernatural about Rasulullah.  The Quran makes a humbling case for the Prophet, telling him to:

قُلْ إِنَّمَا أَنَا بَشَرٌ مِّثْلُكُمْ يُوحَى إِلَيَّ أَنَّمَا إِلَهُكُمْ إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ فَمَن كَانَ يَرْجُو لِقَاء رَبِّهِ فَلْيَعْمَلْ عَمَلًا صَالِحًا وَلَا يُشْرِكْ بِعِبَادَةِ رَبِّهِ أَحَدًا

“Say: I am only a mortal like you (Qul innama ana basharun mithlukum). My Lord inspires in me that your God is only One God. And whoever hopes for the meeting with his Lord, let him do righteous work, and make none share of the worship due unto his Lord.” (Quran 18:110)

The purpose of sending Mohammed Rasulullah to the people was to proclaim Allah’s oneness and the sole creator.  But sects like Shi’as and Sunnis have distorted the message and turned it into being all about the Prophet Muhammed while neglecting Allah and the Quran.

  1. Abu Muhammad Al-Kinani says:

    Are you claiming Muhammad(saw) wasn’t the best man to have ever walked the earth?
    I wonder how you came with those conclusions?
    when you know there are many ahadith about the prophets miracles and as for point 3,5,6,7 and 8. you need to elaborate on them with evidences or otherwise you’re misguiding people. do you completely reject hadiths? i want you to answer these question. I am new to this site I love some other posts with different topics these have clearly confused me!

    • There is no evidence from Allah and his Messenger which states Muhammad Rasulullaah was the best man to ever walked on earth. That is a baseless extremist belief made by people.

      Anas b. Malik reported that a person came to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and said:

      O, the best of creation; thereupon Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: He is Ibraaheem.

      (Sahih Muslim, Book of Virtues)

      In this narration, Muhammad Rasulullaah implied the best of creation was Ibraaheem. Will you believe or disbelieve in this saying?
