Just as it is of utmost importance for a person to know what is proper to accept or not to accept when it comes to Belief in Allah, so that he does not reject any necessity or accept anything that is absolutely impossible and become a Kaafir, it is also of utmost importance to know what is permissible, compulsory and absolutely impossible for a Nabi, since to accept a Muhaal (that which is absolutely impossible) and to reject what is compulsory is the means to infidelity. It is very possible that due to lack of knowledge, that a person may hold a improper belief or say something which is contrary to the proper belief, and this can cause his destruction.

Aqida: A Nabi refers to that human, on whom Allah sent down Wahi (revelation) for the purpose of guidance. Rasool is not only specific to humans, as there are Angels as well who are Rasools.

Aqida: All Nabis were human and men. Neither has any Jin or woman been a Nabi.

Aqida: It is not compulsory upon Almighty Allah to send Prophets. Through His Grace, He sent down Prophets for the guidance of the people.

Aqida: It is necessary for revelation to descend upon a Nabi, be it through an Angel or without any means.

Aqida: Almighty Allah revealed various scriptures (sahifas) and Heavenly Books upon various Nabis.? From amongst them, four are very famous: The Taurat was revealed to Hazrat Moosa (alaihis salaam), The Zuboor to Hazrat Dawood (alaihis salaam), The Injeel to Hazrat Esa (alaihis salaam) and the Most Exalted Book, The Holy Quran was revealed upon the Most Exalted Prophet Huzoor Purnoor Ahmad‑e‑Mujtaba Muhammad Mustafa (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). In the Book of Allah, for part of it to be more exalted than the other parts, is in the sense of more reward attained for us, otherwise, Allah is One and His Word is One. There is no space for more or less exalted in His Kalaam as it is Qadeem. It is not so that certain parts of His Kalaam are more exalted while others are less exalted.

Aqida: All the Heavenly books and scriptures are Haq (True), and all are the word of Allah. It is necessary to bring Imaan in that which has been mentioned in all of them. It however happened that Almighty Allah gave the books of the past in the care of the people. They could not protect it. It did not remain with them in the original form, as it had been revealed, because the mischievous ones amongst them made alterations in these books and added and removed information to suit their own desires. However, the Quran remains safe, unaltered. Thus, if anything from these books are presented before us, and it is in accordance with the Quran, then we should acknowledge it and? if it is contrary to the Quran, then we shall know for certain that it is one of those things that were altered, and if we can not recognise whether it is in accordance with the Quran or contrary, then we should neither reject nor acknowledge it, but we should say, "We bring faith in Allah, in all His Angels, all His Books and All His Prophets.

Aqida: As this religion (Islam) is to remain forever, Almighty Allah has taken upon Himself the responsibility of protecting the Quran. Almighty Allah says, "Verily We have revealed the Quran and verily We are definitely its protector." Thus, to make any alterations in the Quran in any way is totally impossible, even if the people of the entire world gather together with the intention of altering it, thus anyone who says that any chapters, verses, surahs, or even letters have been added or subtracted from it, is a Kaafir without any doubt, for he has refuted the verse of the Quran which we have quoted above.

Aqida: The Holy Quran announces that it is the Word of Allah. "If you have any doubt in this Book which we have revealed upon our most chosen servant, (Muhammad sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) then present a small surah like it and call all your helpers except Allah to assist you, if you are true. And if you can not do so, and We say that you shall never be able to do so, then fear that fire whose fuel is man and stone, which has been prepared for the unbelievers." The Kaafirs tried very hard to do this, but they could not even bring one sentence equal to that of the Quran, and they shall never be able to do so.

Aqida: The past books were only memorised by the Ambia. The miracle of the Quran is that even little children amongst the Muslims have memorised it.

Aqida: There are seven methods of reading the Holy Quran that are most well known and uninterrupted. (Allah Forbid) There is no difference in meaning when reading any one of the seven methods. One should read that method which is most convenient for him. The command is that the method that is most prominent in an area should be the method that one should recite in the gathering of the people, like in India (and various other countries) the Qirat of Aasim on the authority of Hafs is recited, so that people do not reject any method and commit kufr (infidelity) by rejecting another method which they have no knowledge of.

Aqida: The Holy Quran has made various verses of the other books inapplicable. Likewise, some verses of the Quran make other verses of the Quran inapplicable (Mansookh).

Aqida: To be come inapplicable means that certain verses are revealed for a certain period and it is not clearly mentioned until when these verses did apply. When later verses were revealed, then it was understood that the earlier verses were no longer applicable. The reality is that it shows the duration of the law coming to an end.?

Some people say Mansookh (inapplicable) to mean nullified.? This is completely improper. All the commands of Allah are Haq. There is no room for nullification in the commands of Allah.

Aqida: Some of the things in the Quran are clear and well understood by us where as there are other things in the Holy Quran which are not so clear to us and only known by Allah and Allah's Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). To search for such things in the Quran which are not clearly understood and to try to decipher them is only the behavior of a person who has wickedness in his heart.

Aqida: The Wahi of Nabuiwat is only unique to Nabis. One who accepts this for any non Nabi is a Kaafir. That which is shown to a Nabi in his dream is also Wahi (revelation) and it can never be false. Some things are made apparent to Walis (saints) either in their dream, or whilst they are awake. This is known as Ilhaam. The Shaitaani revelation is that which is the whispering of Shaitaan. This is for soothsayers, conjurers and other Kaafirs and open sinners.

Aqida: Nabuiwat (Prophethood) is not something that one can attain through striving or through worship. This is something that is bestowed by Almighty Allah, that through His Grace, He has bestowed it upon whom He Wills. Verily, He has given it to those, whom He has made worthy of this position, who are pure from all undesirable qualities, and with the most exalted character and has passed through the various levels of closeness and whose, body, words, actions and movements are pure from all that which is disliked. They are blessed with the most perfect intelligence, which is very much more powerful than the intelligence of others. The intelligence of any wise doctor or philosopher can not even come close to one hundred thousandth of their intelligence. One who accepts that Nabuiwat is attainable through striving and Ibaadat is a Kaafir.

Aqida: It is compulsory for a Nabi to be "Maasoom" (absolutely free from the ability to sin) and this is a unique quality of Nabis and Angels only. With the exception of a Nabi and Angel, none other is Maasoom (free from the ability to sin). To say the Imams to be Maasoom like the Nabis, is to be mislead and irreligious. Ismat‑e‑Ambia means that the Ambia have been promised protection by Allah, for which reason, it is totally impossible for them to sin and this is different for the Great Imams and the Awliyah Allah. Almighty Allah protects and they do not sin, but according to the Shariah it is not Muhaal for it to happen. . It is improper to say that a child is Maasoom as the even though a child does not sin as a child, but the child definitely has the ability to sin.

Aqida: It is unanimously agreed that the Nabis are pure from anything which is dishonorable behavior or qualities, such as Shirk (associating partners with Allah), Kufr (infidelity), lies, dishonesty, and ignorance etc, before attaining Nabuiwat and even after attaining Nabuiwat. They are pure from major and minor sins even before Nabuiwat is bestowed upon them, thus Maasoom.

Aqida: The Nabis have passed on all the commands to the people which Almighty Allah revealed upon them for the people.? Anyone who says that any Nabi did not pass down all Allah's commands due to fear (Taqiyya) or any other reason is a Kaafir.

Aqida: It is absolutely impossible for Nabis to make mistakes and errors in propagating the commands of Allah.

Aqida: It is necessary for their bodies to be free from leprosy, and all other sicknesses that are hated by the people.

There are those who use derogatory terms when explaining the history of certain Prophets. An example of this is the incidents about Hazrat Ayoob (alaihis salaam). I have often heard and read people say and write that (Allah Forbid) that when Hazrat Ayoob (alaihis salaam) was ill, his body had a bad smell which drove people away from him etc. To say this totally improper and is not a true account of the incident which occurred. Such words can never be used in the when discussing the Prophets of Allah.

Aqida: Almighty Allah has bestowed the knowledge of the unseen upon the Ambia‑e‑Kiraam. Every particle in the skies and earths is in the sight of every Nabi. This knowledge of the unseen which the Nabis possess is that which has been bestowed upon them by Almighty Allah, thus their knowledge is known as Ilm‑e‑Ataayi (that knowledge which has been bestowed) and Ilm‑e‑Ataayi is Muhaal for Allah, for none of His attributes or splendors are given to Him by any. They are all of His Self. Those who reject knowledge of the unseen for Nabis especially the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), they are rejecting the verse of the Quran where Almighty Allah say, "They accept some words of the Quran and make infidelity with other verses" They only look at certain verses and they reject the verses in which it is explained that the Ambia are given knowledge of the unseen, whereas all the verses about Ilm‑e‑Ghaib (unseen knowledge) are Haq. Since the verses which say that Almighty Allah alone has knowledge of the unseen refers to Ilm‑e‑Zaati (that which is unattained) and the verses which explain ilm‑e‑ghaib for the Prophets is referring to Ilm‑e‑Ataayi (that which is bestowed upon them). To say that by accepting that The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is aware of every particle is equaling his knowledge to that of Allah, is a totally baseless argument, since only then will it be equal, if we say that the Prophet has the same knowledge as Allah (Allah Forbid). ...
