Salutation To The Holy Prophet (pbuh)

Recently a question has arisen on media about a book where PBUH was not written with the Prophet's name. My question is whether it is obligatory to write PBUH or SAW when writing a book or an academic paper. I have tried to search for this on internet but I have not found any reasonable resource. Kindly guide me on this with references. Also guide me about the early scholars as what they used to do when writing Prophet's name.

The Semitic Prophets

Why do we know about maximum 30-40 Prophets whereas we know that the world had seen 124,000 Prophets since its inception. Even Quran is silent about rest of the Prophets?

Second, an automatic question of why all Prophets came in an around a particular geographical area, I mean Arab peninsula. Why not in China, Canada or South America?

Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani In The Qur’an

For your consideration, I will present to you some verses of Quran which Ahmadis believe refer to Ghulam Ahmad. But as I said before, the Jews deny the verses in Taurah which refer to Muhammad (sa), and the Muslims deny the verses in Quran which refer to Ghulam Ahmad.

I am not going to give you the Ahmadi translation of these verses, I am going to give you a word for word translation of these verses:


He it is Who raised among the unlettered ones a Messenger from among themselves, he recites upon them His Signs, and purifies them, and teaches them the Book and Wisdom, and before that they were in clear error; And others from them who have not yet joined them. And He is the Mighty, the Wise. [Quran 62:2-3]

In the above verses, Quran 62:2 says that Allah raised His messenger and this messenger purified the Unlettered (Arabs), and taught them the Book and Wisdom, while they were in clear error before.

But then Quran 62:3 says that this process will be repeated with others who have not yet joined the Arabs. Everybody knows that during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad (sa), the message of Islam only extended meaningfully or sweepingly to the lands of Arabia, and even in Arabia there was not absolute dominance of Islam. Therefore, it seems that the process where Allah's messenger would purify these non-Arabs and teach them the Book and Wisdom would happen sometime after Muhammad's (sws) death. But who would do this task? Quran, as I said before, does not explicitly name or identify anybody, and this verse is somewhat mysterious.

Because this verse is not explicitly explained by Allah Himself in Quran, I think it's fair to present an explanation reported from Muhammad (sws) in Sahih Bukhari. Abu Hurairah (ra) asked him about who Quran 62:3 referred to, and Muhammad (sws) answered that if faith leaves the Earth, then a Persian man or Persian people would bring faith back to Earth.

Therefore, although 62:3 talks of Allah's messenger teaching the book to another people, clearly Prophet Muhammad (sws) regarded this verse as a prophecy about the distant future, when faith would leave the Earth, and he said that this prophecy would be fulfilled by a Persian or Persians.

Ghulam Ahmad (as) was of persian descent.

Identification Of The Biblical Pharaoh

I would like to inquire if you know any relations between the Pharaoh mentioned in the Holy Qur’an during Prophet Moses' time and the Pharaohs mentioned in the Historical data such as Tutenkhamon or Amenhotep? Are they in anyway related to one another historically? If they are not related, do you have any idea in which year was the existence of the Pharaoh mentioned in the Holy Al-Qur’an during Prophet Moses' time?

Noah’s (sws) Age

The Holy Qur'an states that Noah (sws) preached for almost nine and a half centuries. I believe that average life and physical body traits of mankind has always been the same. A difference of five to ten years is understandable. But what the traditions report about the body structure of Awj b. Aunuq seems far beyond the reality. We can deny it because it has not been affirmed by the Holy Qur'an. But the life span of Noah (sws) has been recorded by the Holy Qur'an which cannot be questioned in any condition. Did all of his disciples live such a long life? Were they like us in their heights or was there some difference? I think that Noah (sws) lived almost five thousand years ago. Four or five thousand years have no significance in the long history of the world and the universe. It does not seem reasonable that five thousand years ago man lived as long as one thousand years. The Holy Qur'an does not say any such thing about any other Messenger of God.

Regarding The ‘Sins’ Of Mohammad (sws)

I have always read that all the prophets of Allah are perfect people who do not sin. While I do not believe in the Torah version of events, I thought, all prophets were people who must have committed mistakes and misjudgments (political, religious or social) here and there, which God corrected immediately and forgave them for.

Now, I searched the quran for sins of the perfection or humanness of our beloved Mohammad SWS and found the following verses which not only testify that he might have committed errors in political or social decisions but sins. a sin "zanb" is much graver than a mistake and I believe it relates to breaking a religious law.
God confirms he has forgiven Mohammad SWS all his sins the past and the future but it still remains that unlike what many Moslems claim, the quran's ayas are evidence that our prophet was not a perfect human being and he committed sins.
40:55
So be patient (O Muhammad SAW). Verily, the Promise of Allah is true, and ask forgiveness for your fault, and glorify the praises of your Lord in the Ashi (i.e. the time period after the midnoon till sunset) and in the Ibkar (i.e. the time period from early morning or sunrise till before midnoon) [it is said that, that means the five compulsory congregational Salat (prayers) or the 'Asr and Fajr prayers].
47:19
So know (O Muhammad SAW) that La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women. And Allah knows well your moving about, and your place of rest (in your homes).
48:2-3
That Allah may forgive you your sins of the past and the future and complete his favour on you and guide you on the straight path.

What do you think, and if I a completely wrong in my conclusion then how would I make sense of the quranic ayas?

An Incident Related To The Life Of The Prophet (sws)

In April I became a Muslim. I've been attempting to learn as much as I can about this faith. Before I converted, I studied for a few months, but it is impossible to read everything. Recently I've run across something that makes me doubt the truth of Islam, and I would like it cleared up. It is hurting my iman. I have gone through so much to accept this faith, and I don't want to let it go. Please, explain the meaning of this hadith to me. It seems brutal and contrary to everything I believe about Allah and his prophet (sws).

Narrated Abdullah Ibn Abbas:
A blind man had a slave-mother who used to abuse the Prophet (sws) and disparage him. He forbade her but she did not stop. He rebuked her but she did not give up her habit. One night she began to slander the Prophet (sws) and abuse him. So he took a dagger, placed it on her belly, pressed it, and killed her. A child who came between her legs was smeared with the blood that was there. When the morning came, the Prophet (sws) was informed about it. He assembled the people and said: I adjure by Allah the man who has done this action and I adjure him by my right to him that he should stand up. Jumping over the necks of the people and trembling the man stood up. He sat before the Prophet (sws) and said:
Apostle of Allah! I am her master; she used to abuse you and disparage you. I forbade her, but she did not stop, and I rebuked her, but she did not abandon her habit. I have two sons like pearls from her, and she was my companion. Last night she began to abuse and disparage you. So I took a dagger, put it on her belly and pressed it till I killed her. Thereupon the Prophet (sws) said: Oh be witness, no retaliation is payable for her blood.
Here are links to the Hadith:
The USC website is used frequently to quote ahadith on the web. The other, www.jannah.com is also a respected Islamic website. Is this hadith authentic? How do I find out?

Thanks so much for any light you can shed on this subject. Is there any source I can find (other than my own opinion) that can discredit this hadith? If this hadith isn't valid, why is it among the collections of hadith? Why hasn't it been discarded?

Seeing The Prophet (sws) In A Dream

I had a very short dream during the recent shab-e-barat (fifteenth of Sha’ban) night. In which, I was told that the person I vision was the Prophet Muhammad (saw). This happened while I was not doing any ibadat, instead I was at work doing night shift, where sometimes when no work I just sit on sofa and sleep for a while. The detailed get-up etc. of the Prophet (saw) as I saw in the dream was as following:

Medium/smart stature and height, white beard slightly thin from cheeks as compared to the chin, Noorani (hallowed) face, but I do not remember the features, wearing white turban, holding a stick in his hand. I was the only person there and was standing close/left edge on his way. However, there was no conversation or eye contact established between is. The predominant feelings after the dream were that, how this could happen to me while I cannot even offer Prayers regularly, and I occasionally fall into commuting sins? I was also not ritually pure at that time (as I did not have a bath ever since I had an intercourse with my wife few days earlier). I have also found out that the Prophet (saw) had a black beard, than why did I see the white one? Also came across a Hadith that ways that whoever sees the Prophet (saw) in a dream actually sees him. Please tell me about the validity of this dream in the light of the sahih Hadiths. And if it is valid, does it impose any religious/ethical etc. obligations on me for the future life.

Intercession By The Prophet (sws)

One of my friends holds that the Holy Prophet (sws) is dead. He is no more in this world. We should not pray to Allah with his reference. For example we cannot say: O God, please forgive me because of your beloved Prophet (sws). He says we should plead to Allah directly. Mohammad (sws) is dead and the dead have no value. This is unacceptable and heartrending to me. Please explain how he can be rebutted.
