DID MUHAMMAD[1] KNOW THE UNSEEN AND FUTURE?

Chapter 7 verse 187: “They ask thee (i.e. Muhammad) about the (final) Hour - when will be its appointed time? Say: "The knowledge thereof is with my Rabb (alone): none but He (i.e. Allâh) can reveal as to when it will occur. Heavy were its burden through the heavens and the earth. Only, all of a sudden will it come to you." They ask thee (i.e. Muhammad) as if thou (i.e. Muhammad) wert eager in search thereof: say: "The knowledge thereof is with Allâh (alone), but most men know not."

Chapter 7 verse 188: “Say: “I (i.e. Muhammad) have no power over any good or harm to myself except as Allâh willed. If I (i.e. Muhammad) had knowledge of the unseen, I (i.e. Muhammad) should have multiplied all good, and no evil should have touched me: I (i.e. Muhammad) am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have faith. ” (cf: Chapter 31 verse 34)

Chapter 10 verse 49: “Say: “I (i.e. Muhammad) have no power over any harm or profit to myself except as Allâh willeth. […]”

Chapter 79 verses 42 to 45: “They ask thee (i.e. Muhammad) about the Hour Day of Judgement),-‘when will be its appointed time?’ Wherein art thou (i.e. Muhammad) (concerned) with the declaration thereof? With thy Rabb in the limit fixed therefor. Thou (i.e. Muhammad) art but a warner for such as fear it.” (cf: Chapter 3 verse 128)

Chapter 72 verses 21 & 22: “SAY: “IT IS NOT IN MY (i.e. Muhammad’s) POWER TO CAUSE YOU HARM, OR TO BRING YOU TO RIGHT CONDUCT.” Say: “No one can deliver me (i.e. Muhammad) from Allâh if I (i.e. Muhammad) were to disobey (Allâh), nor should I (i.e. Muhammad) find refuge except in Him (i.e. Allâh),”

Chapter 33 verse 63: “People ask thee (i.e. Muhammad) concerning the hour: say, "The knowledge thereof is with Allâh (alone)": and what will make thee understand?- Perchance the Hour is nigh!”

Chapter 31 verse 34: “Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allâh (alone). It is He (i.e. Allâh) who sends down rain, and He(i.e. Allâh) who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does anyone know what it is that one will earn on the morrow: nor does anyone know in what land one is to die. Verily with Allâh is full knowledge and He (i.e. Allâh) is acquainted (with all things).

Muhammad Does Not Know What Will Happen To Him On The Day Of Judgement!

Chapter 46 verse 9: “Say: “I (i.e. Muhammad) am no bringer of new-fangled doctrine among the messengers, NOR DO I (i.e. Muhammad) KNOW WHAT WILL BE DONE WITH ME (i.e. Muhammad) OR WITH YOU. I (i.e. Muhammad) FOLLOW BUT THAT WHICH IS REVEALED TO ME (i.e. Al-Qur’ân) BY INSPIRATION; I (i.e. Muhammad) am but a warner open and clear.” (cf: Chapter 10 verse 49; Chapter 7 verse 188; Chapter 39 verse 19; Chapter 3 verse 128)

The Following Question Will Be Posed To Muhammad On The Day Of Judgement:

Chapter 4 verse 41: “How then when We (i.e. Allâh) brought from each people a witness, and WE (i.e. Allâh) BROUGHT THEE (i.e. Muhammad) AS A WITNESS AGAINST THESE PEOPLE!” (cf: Chapter 5 verse 109)

Please take special note of the question and his answer below, and ask yourself if his answer will be any help to anyone!

Chapter 25 verse 30: “Then the Messenger (i.e. Muhammad) will say: “O MY RABB! TRULY MY (i.e. Muhammad’s) PEOPLE TOOK THIS QUR’ÂN FOR JUST FOOLISH NONSENSE.” Chapter 46 verse 9: “Say: I (i.e. Muhammad) am not the first of the Messengers and bring no new (belief) doctrine among the Messengers, NOR DO I (i.e. Muhammad) KNOW WHAT WILL BE DONE WITH ME OR WITH YOU. I (i.e. Muhammad) FOLLOW BUT THAT WHICH IS REVEALED TO ME BY WÂHY (INSPIRATION) (i.e. Qur’ân); I (i.e. Muhammad) am but a Warner open and clear.”

Chapter 42 verse 15: “Now then, for that (reason), call (to Al-Qur’ân), and stand steadfast as thou (i.e. Muhammad) art commanded, nor follow thou their vain desires; but say: “I (i.e. Muhammad) BELIEVE IN THE BOOK (i.e. Al-Qur’ân) WHICH ALLÂH HAS SENT DOWN; […].”

Allâh’s Commands Muhammad To Follow Only Al-Qur’ân:

Chapter 7 verse 3: “FOLLOW THE REVELATION (i.e. Al-Qur’ân) GIVEN UNTO YOU (i.e. Muhammad) from your Rabb, and follow not, as friends or protectors, other than Allâh. […]”
