Examples of how he was like the Quran

Examples of how he (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) was like the Quran

Previously we have spoken about the greatness of the character of the Prophet (may Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) and we want to comment on the narration of Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) when she stated that the Prophet’s (May Allah bestow peace and blessings upon him) character was like the Quran. Now we wish to look deeply into this by showing some examples.


From Hadith:
In the hadith Gibril (upon him peace) he asked, “Inform me about faith.” He replied, “It is to believe in Allah, his angels, his books, his Messengers, the last day and to believe in the divine decree; the good and the bad.”

From Quran

“Messenger believes in what was sent down to him from his Lord, and the believers; each one believes in God and His angels, and in His Books and His Messengers; we make no division between any one of His Messengers. They say, ’We hear, and obey. Our Lord, grant us Thy forgiveness; unto Thee is the homecoming.” The Heffer 2:285


From Quran
“The people will question thee concerning the Hour. Say: ’The knowledge of it is only with God; what shall make thee know? Haply the Hour is nigh.” The Clans 33:63

From Hadith

Also in the same narration Gibril (upon him peace) he asked, “Inform me about the hour.” He replied, “The questioner does not know more than the questioned.” (Muslim 1/36, Abu Dawood 5/69 4695, Ibn Majah 1/24 and Ahmed 1/51)


From Quran
“O’ Messenger, convey all that has been sent down to you from your Lord. If you do not, then you shall not have conveyed His message (at all). Allah shall protect you from the people. Surely, Allah does not lead the disbelieving people to the right path.” The Table Spread 5:67

From Hadith

After the speech given at the farewell pilgrimage he delivered a speech in which he asked, “Have I given the message?” They said, “Yes.” “O’ Allah, be my witness.” (Bukhari 1623, 1626, 6361, Muslim 98, at-Tirmidhi 1628, 2046, 2085 and Imam Ahmed 19774).


From Hadith and Quran
Abdullah ibn Masud (may Allah be pleased with him) narrates that a man said, “O’ Messenger of Allah, which sin is greatest sin according to Allah?” He replied, “To call an idol other than Allah yet he created you.” He asked, “Then which?” He replied, “To kill your child out of fear of provision.” He asked, “Then which?” He replied, “To commit fornication with your neighbour.” Then Allah send the verse, “Who call not upon another god with God, nor slay the soul God has forbidden except by right, neither fornicate, for whosoever does that shall meet the price.” The Criterion 25:68


From Quran
The Heights 7:158
“Say: ’O mankind, I am the Messenger of God to you all, of Him to whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and of the earth. There is no god but He. He gives life, and causes death. Believe then in God, and in His Messenger, the Prophet of the common folk, who believes in God and His words, and follow him; haply so you will be guided.”

From Hadith

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, “I was given five things that no one was given before; I was sent to the red and the black, the Earth was purified place of prostration for me, I was given victory over my enemy through fear over a month’s travelling distance and I can partake in the spoils of war. It was said, ask and it is given and my intercession is concealed from my nation.” Muslim 521 and Ad-Dayrami 2468


From Quran
“Then let them laugh a little: they will weep much, as the reward of what they used to earn.” (Repentance 9:82)

From Hadith

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bestow upon him peace and blessings) said, “If you knew what I know; you would’ve laughed less and cried much.” Tabarani


From Quran
“Warn your relatives.” (The Poets 26:214)

From Hadith

Ibn Abbas said that when this was sent down the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bestow upon him peace and blessings) when onto the mount of Safa and warned his tribe. (Dalial An-Nabuwwa Imam Al-Bayhaqi p.64 Vol 1)
