The claim that the Prophet is created from the Light of Allah

Q 4: I heard a professor saying that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was created from the Light of Allah, is this true?

A: This statement is not correct, for it opposes both Nusus (legal texts) and reality. Proof, senses, and logic indicate that he was born to a father i.e. `Abdullah ibn `Abdul-Muttalib and a mother i.e. Aminah bint Wahb and his lineage is well known.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
