Question & Answer

Is Prophet Mohammad(SAW) alive?


Answer:



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)”

Allah Says in the Quran

Allah! There is no god but He (Alone), The Ever-Living, The Self-Subsisting Eternal. QURAN[2:255]

Allah is alone & ever-living is an Exclusive Attributes of Allah and Every creation has to perish one day without exception. As Allah Says in the Quran

And call not besides Allah on another god. There is no god but He. Everything (that exists) will perish, except His Own Face. To Him belongs the Command and to Him will ye (all) be brought back. QURAN[28:88]

Regardless of whether one in creation is a Prophet of Allah or anyone else, Everything (that exists) will perish, if any one beleaves that there is any creation other than allah, who is ever living then with out any doubt he will be doing a grave sin of shirk, as ever-living is one of the exclusive attributes of allah.

Like all prophets of Allah, prophet Mohammad(pbuh) was also a human being & servent of allah, he(pbuh) was having all the attributes of a human beings, he was born like all the humans are born, and he died a natural death. and his family and noble companions buried him with honor in his grave after his death!

Allah says in the Quran (O Prophet Mohamed (saws)) YOU SHALL DIE, and they too shall die! Then on the Day of Resurrection, you all will present your disputes before your Lord. QURAN[39:30-31]


Allah says in the Quran Mohamed is no more than a Messenger. Other Messengers have already died before him. If then, he (saws) also dies or is slain, will you turn about on your heels? Remember, he who turns about on his heels, will do no harm at all to Allah. Of course, Allah will duly reward those who live as His grateful servants. QURAN[3:144]


It is reported from Hadrat Aisha (r.a.) that Allah's Messenger (saws) died while Hadrat Abu Bakr (r.a.) was at a place called As-Sunah (Al-'Aliya). Hadrat Umar (r.a.) stood up and said, "By Allah! Allah's Messenger (saws) is not dead!" Hadrat Umar (r.a.) (later on) said, "By Allah! Nothing occurred to my mind except that." He said, "Verily! Allah will resurrect him (saws) and he will cut the hands and legs of some men." Then Hadrat Abu Bakr (r.a.) came and uncovered the face of Allah's Messenger (saws), kissed him and said, "Let my mother and father be sacrificed for you, (O Allah's Messenger (saws)), you are good in life and in death. By Allah in Whose Hands my life is, Allah will never make you taste death twice." Then he went out and said, "O oath-taker! Don't be hasty." When Hadrat Abu Bakr (r.a.) spoke, Hadrat Umar (r.a.) sat down. Abu Bakr (r.a.) praised and glorified Allah and said, "No doubt! Whoever worshipped Muhammad, then Muhammad is dead, but whoever worshipped Allah, then Allah is alive and shall never die." Then he recited Allah's Statement.: "(O Muhammad) Verily you will die, and they also will die." (39.30) He also recited: "Mohamed is no more than a Messenger. Other Messengers have already died before him. If then, he (saws) also dies or is slain, will you turn about on your heels? Remember, he who turns about on his heels, will do no harm at all to Allah. Of course, Allah will duly reward those who live as His grateful servants." (3.144)


Thus from the above guidance of allah it is clear that prophet mohammad(pbuh) is not alive, & It is absolutely against the principles of Islam to believe that Prophet Mohamed (saws) or any other person is alive in his grave, there can not be contact between the living person and adead person in the grave, they can not answer the supplications, they can not communicate. Thus one should abstain all these belief if one really fears Allah, may Allah guide us 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.
