Are Prophets sinless? | Nouman Ali Khan | Kinetic Typography


in the name of Allah the most beneficent the most merciful so the first question we’re gonna have to post about the noumenal Iran because it has to do with mouselina Moses the question is do Muslims believe that prophets were sinless that all the prophets were without sin and if so how do you explain that Moses killed a person or how do you explain the sin of Adam okay so the question is about the our beliefs regarding the profits being sinless and the two obvious examples that are cited are of course adam alayhis-salam and moses and him killing a person the the story of moses is actually the easier two things here one this is before revelation came to him that’s one revelation came to him on the mount this is many years after and two that it was actually accidental that the commands narration is that he was defending somebody else and in the midst of the scuffle he punched him not realising his own strength and ended up killing someone it was not on purpose and so a crime that’s not committed on purpose is not necessarily from a spiritual point of view at least not considered a sin even though the judicial system might look at it differently as for the story of adam alayhis-salam and him eating from the from the fruit this is something we believe this is in fact something we believe that he did do that and that he did repent for it but this is other Molly Sam is not just the a prophet he’s the first human being and this is part of the story of you know of creation it doesn’t negate the the pure character of not only himself thereafter and of all of the prophets and messengers combined all of them and we do hold these values because if the messenger who is going to deliver God’s message if he himself is prone to sin he is supposed to be the role model to all of the nations and his entire people and in our case the Prophet is supposed to be a role model to generate for generations to come if they themselves are made examples of they’re examples of sin then that entire idea of them be incredible role models dies it doesn’t hold any value anymore you know so it is something that is inherent in the beliefs of the Muslims that prophets are in fact innocent of sin that they do not commit sin however if they do make a what you can call a mistake even though I want to use the term cautiousiy this is kind of a subtle subject I know there’s a lot of motion here’s I’ll be brief sometimes Allah allows in our case in the case of the prophet sallallaahu said him a blind man came to him many of you know the story a blind man came to him and asked him interrupted a conversation and the prophet saw son was upset that he was interrupted in the middle of a conversation and revelation came correcting him and asking the question why would you turn away when the blind man came Abaza with Allah and JAMA he frowned he turned away when the blind one came to him right there are a couple of things here one the Prophet expressing frustration turning away turning his face literally turning his face if you can see me turn my face its offensive if you were trying to talk to me and I turned my face away from you it’s rude the person in question is who is someone blind so it’s already not an expression of rudeness unless it’s verbalized because the blind one can hear that’s number one number two revelation could have come before then to tell the Prophet listen to blind what is coming pay him extra attention so the question arose by theologians and explainers of the Quran why would revelation wait to come until after he turned his face the entire point of it was to let people know that only God has the right to correct his messengers we don’t correct messengers God can and so to show that messengers themselves it’s not like they’re beyond scrutiny they can even be scrutinized but the only one who can scrutinize them would be God himself and so it established that kind of hierarchy because there are religions in the world where the religious figure on top is beyond scrutiny whatsoever nobody can touch them nobody could say anything about them they are free of any sort of criticism actually there are many places in the Quran where Allah warns the prophet sallallaahu our lives to them he warns Muhammad he warns him he actually even and some some places very scary language to reduce it at Al Hayat dunya in surah Vodka do you want worldly life of course the answer is no but the question is placed that way the same thing happens in our belief for Jesus with isolates and I’m on Judgment Day untuk will tell in us did you tell the people to worship you and yours your mother gods besides me you know he’s interrogated what why is this happening these are the noble messengers they’re so honored but before God they are still servants and slaves so that hierarchy is established in Revelation that we never confuse them with you know God the God of perfection himself a loss of her nonlethal died himself and I hope that is of some satisfaction barakallahu li walakum you

  1. If you love Nouman Ali Khan support him at Bayyinah TV. The best of Nouman and Arabic lessons too for $11 a month.

  2. Doesn't the Quran teach that no human is perfect and nothing a person does can merit Paradise but it depends totally on the Mercy and Benevolence of Allah? And the Quran also teaches that when someone repents to Allah, it is strictly between the person and Allah and Allah doesn't announce the person's sins to the public. So while in the Bible, for example, David's  adultery is explicit, Allah doesn't mention it explicitly in the Quran. Allah is quite capable of transmitting His Message through anyone he chooses. Mohammad couldn't read or write but that didn't stop Allah from giving us the Quran through him.

    PS…I do believe that Muhammad, PBUH, is the best role model and is less imperfect than a normal human being who isn't a prophet. Having read his biography, I find that Muhammad was very humble, truthful, patient, steadfast, very devoted to Allah, and very compassionate to friends and enemies.

    Good job Nouman. I love how you bring out the beauty of the Quran for those of us that can't read the Quran in Arabic.

  3. Ofcourse can Prophets(p.b.u.t.) commit sins.. So did our prophet Muhammad(s.a.w.) also commit a sin(it was actually more a 'fault' than a 'sin')… Allah(S.W.T) gave him a chance for forgiveness of his sin, to take Mecca over, and after that, repent to Allah(S.W.T) for forgiveness…

    How should we take the prophets as examples for us, if they were sinless, if they never made a fault etc. etc. All stuff like these..?

    But everytime, the prophets are EXAMPLES for us, for how to 'act' when we commit a (or more) sin(s)..

  4. what I know is that prophets r sinless in delivering the message ,,,thats a necessity, otherwise Allah knows

  5. I don't understand something: How does the fact that the revelation came after the incident show that only God can correct prophets? Thank you

  6. What makes all the messengers special, whether they were sinless or not?…They repented and asked for forgiveness with whole complete hearts, that is why they are role models. You learn from role models, you see their mistakes and use their lessons for yourself. Use them as an example, because SURELY you sin, but do you ask for forgiveness? With all your heart? And promise whole heartedly that you do not commit that sin again? First times a mistake, if done unintentionally. The second, after you have learned our lessons, that is a sin.

  7. The most short yet comprehensive explanation i have ever come across. Only evil people tend to overlook their own humongous, unforgivable deeds yet trying to scrutinize and condemn the most microbial missteps of the most noble group of men that God has chosen. May God guide us all. Amen.

  8. I think it all goes down to repentance on whether it is a sin or not. Adam eating the fruit form the tree would be a sin if he did not ask for forgiveness but, as we know, He did ask for forgiveness.

  9. I have a question here. Why would god create his messengers so perfect and love them so much, i mean he is the one who created them perfect they had no choice.
    Are all prophets forced or did they have free will ? thanks
