Question & Answer

Does prophet mohammad(pbuh) know what is happening on earth after his death?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

Our beloved prophet Mohammad (pbuh) does not know what is happening on the earth after his death, when a human dies & leaves this world , he enters in to the another world, after that there can be no communication between the dead person and a living person, our beloved prophet Mohammad(pbuh) was a human being. As Allah says in the Quran:

Say (O Prophet) : "I am but a 'bashar' (human) like yourselves (but) the inspiration has come to me: that your Allah is one Allah: whoever expects to meet his Lord, let him work righteousness, and in the worship of his Lord admit no one as partner." QURAN[18:110]

When the Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) was alive, he did not possess the knowledge of the 'unseen', unless specifically told of the 'unseen' by Allah.

Narrated Masruq: 'Aisha said, "If anyone tells you that Muhammad has seen his Lord, he is a liar, for Allah says: 'No vision can grasp Him.' (6.103) And if anyone tells you that Muhammad has seen the Unseen, he is a liar, for Allah says: "None has the knowledge of the Unseen but Allah." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI[Book 93 :: Volume 9 :: Hadith 477]

Thus no one in this universe possesses the knowledge of the 'unseen' except Allah.

Narrated Ibn Umar: The Prophet said, "The keys of the unseen are five and none knows them but Allah: (1) None knows what is in the womb, but Allah: (2) None knows what will happen tomorrow, but Allah; (3) None knows when it will rain, but Allah; (4) None knows where he will die, but Allah (knows that); (5) and none knows when the Hour will be established, but Allah." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI[Book 93 : Volume 9 : Hadith 476]

So from the above guidance of Allah & his messenger (pbuh) it is only Allah in the whole universe who has knowledge of everything (seen & unseen) that exists. To believe that Prophet Mohamed (pbuh) has the power to be aware of everything that is happening on this earth after his death, is to raise him to the rank of Allah, and committing the heinous and unforgivable crime of 'shirk'. So every believer should fear Allah and should abstain from such beliefs, in order to prosper in this world & in the world hereafter. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
