Was the Messenger born to human parents?

Q: Is it true that the Prophet (peace be upon him) was created from the Light of Allah (Exalted be He)? Does this saying befit Allah’s Perfection (Exalted be He)? Kindly give your Fatwa on this issue, supported by proofs from the Qur’an and Sunnah.


A: There is no proof in the Qur’an or the Sunnah that the Prophet (peace be upon him) was created from the Light of Allah. To the contrary, there is an abundance of proofs, in addition to the proof of reason and reality that he was born to a human father and mother, like all human beings, and his lineage is well-known. (Part No. 1; Page No. 467) This lays bare the falsehood of the claim that the Prophet (peace be upon him) was created from the Light of Allah (Exalted be He), a claim which contradicts the Perfection of Allah (Exalted be He).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
