Kaffirs Said To Prophets Mockingly: 'you Are Nothing But Human Like Us.'

Recommended Posts

Ahlul Biddah while referring to Prophet Muhammed {sallalahu alayhi was'salam}, either in affirming his humanness, or in a attempt to refute uniqueness of Prophet Muhammed {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} Bashari'at {humanness} utter, or write words which disrespect him, in fact the very attempt to make RasoolAllah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} a ordinary human being is disrespectful, a believer heaps praises as Allah and the angles send blessings on the Prophet {sallalahu alayhi was'salam}:

* Surah Al Ahzab {33} Verse 56: Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send you blessings on him, and salute him in submission {respect}.”

Lover does not find faults in his beloved, but the lover sees beauty in everything which his beloved possess, and loves what ever his beloved loves, and hates what ever his beloved hates, and RasoolAllah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} stated, that a person does not become Momin until he loves me more then his wealth, children, parents, wife, etc … How can a momin dare to equate himself with RasoolAllah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam}, or state: 'RasoolAllah is human like me.' or 'I am human like RasoolAllah.'.

The Momineen, the first group of Momineen, the Sahabah, not a single one, uttered words which show they believed they are human like RasoolAllah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} or RasoolAllah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} is human like them.

Rather this is legacy of Mushrikeen {polytheists} and Kuffar to refer to their Prophets as: 'You Are Nothing But Human Like Us.' they used this as the reason to reject their Prophet-hood, and to ridicule their Prophets, Allah mentions of the mockery:

* Surah Al Hijr {15} Verse 11: “But never came an apostle to them but they mocked him.”

* Surah Ya Sin {36} Verse 30: “Ah! Alas for (My) Servants! There comes not an apostle to them but they mock him!”

* Surah Az-Zukhruf {43} Verse 7: “And never came there a prophet to them but they mocked him.”Ambiyah {alayhis salam} were mocked, abused, martyred by the nations which they were sent to, and one reason for their rejection of Prophets was they said Ambiyah {alayhis salam} are humans like them, meaning ordinary humans like them with no special status no special mission, just ordinary people as the Mushrikeen and the Kuffar were.

Disbelievers Rejected Prophets – On Grounds Of Their Humanity:

* Surah Ibrahim {14} Verse 10: “Their apostles said: "Is there a doubt about Allah, The Creator of the heavens and the earth? It is He Who invites you, in order that He may forgive you your sins and give you respite for a term appointed!" They said: "You are human like ourselves! Ye wish to turn us away from the (gods) our fathers used to worship: then bring us some clear authority."

The disbelievers are stating that you are ordinary human beings, with no specialty, no Prophet-hood, you are ordinary human being, in response to this Ambiyah {alayhis salam} responded in humility that indeed we are humans like you, but we still have been given authority from Allah:

* Surah Ibrahim {14} Verse 11:Their apostles said to them: "True, we are human like yourselves, but Allah doth grant His grace to such of his servants as He pleases. It is not for us to bring you an authority except as Allah permits. And on Allah let all men of faith put their trust.”

* Surah Al Muminun {23} Verse 24: The chiefs of the Unbelievers among his people said: "He is nothing but a man like yourselves: his wish is to assert his superiority over you: if Allah had wished (to send messengers), He could have sent down angels; never did we hear such a thing (as he says), among our ancestors of old."

The disbelievers said: 'He is Nothing but a human like you.' meaning a ordinary human being, without any special mission, special status.

* Surah Al Muminun {23} Verse 33: “And the chiefs of his people, who disbelieved and denied the Meeting in the Hereafter, and on whom We had bestowed the good things of this life, said: "He is nothing but a man like yourselves: he eats of that of which ye eat, and drinks of what ye drink.”

And the heretics too use this type or argument, Prophet Muhammed {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} is human like me, he eats, drink's, walk's, sleep's like me. This shows that manners in which Prophets were insulted, and derided, hasn’t actually changed, just the clock has been moving forward.

* Surah Ash-Shura {26} Verse: 186 "You are nothing but a human like us, and indeed we think thou art a liar!

* Surah Ash-Shura {26} Verse: 154 "You are nothing but a human like us, then bring us a Sign, if thou tellest the truth!"

* Surah Ya Sin {36} Verse 15: “The (people) said: "You are nothing but human like ourselves; and ((Allah)) Most Gracious sends no sort of revelation: ye do nothing but lie."

* Surah At-Taghabun {64} Verse 6: “That was because there came to them apostles with Clear Signs, but they said: "Shall human beings direct us?" So they rejected (the Message) and turned away. But Allah can do without (them): and Allah is free of all needs, worthy of all praise.”

Prophet Muhammed – Mocked:

Just as other Ambiyah {alayhis salam} were mocked and insulted, RasoolAllah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} was mocked by the kuffar, even attempts were made to martyr him, and Allah had promise to protect him, thus the plans of the kuffar failed to materialized as they wished.

Allah subhana wa tallah comforts Prophet Muhammed by informing him:

* Surah Al An-Am {6} Verse 10:Mocked were (many) apostles before thee; but their scoffers were hemmed in by the thing that they mocked.”

* Surah Ar-Rad {13} Verse 32: Mocked were (many) apostles before thee: but I granted respite to the unbelievers, and finally I punished them: Then how (terrible) was my requital!”

* Surah Al Furqaan {25} Verse 41: When they see you then, deem you nothing but as a joker, {in mockery they say}: "Is this the one whom Allah has sent as an apostle?"

And the reason for this mockery of Prophet Muhammed {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} was that they did not see him more then a ordinary human being, therefore they did not have fear of Allah, nor the punishment in hellfire.

* Surah Al Ambiyah {21} Verse 3: “Their hearts toying as with trifles. The wrong-doers conceal their private counsels, (saying), "Is this (one) more than a man like yourselves? Will ye go to witchcraft with your eyes open?"

* Surah Al Isra {17} Verse 94: “What kept men back from belief when Guidance came to them, was nothing but this: they said, "Has Allah sent a man to be Messenger." {95} Say, "If there were settled, on earth, angels walking about in peace and quiet, We should certainly have sent them down from the heavens an angel for an apostle."

And Allah subhana wa tallah instructs RasoolAllah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} to affirm his humanity in humility:

* Surah Al Isra {17} Verse 92: "Or thou cause the sky to fall in pieces, as thou sayest (will happen), against us; or thou bring Allah and the angels before (us) face to face: {93} "Or thou have a house adorned with gold, or thou mount a ladder right into the skies. No, we shall not even believe in thy mounting until thou send down to us a book that we could read." Say: "Glory to my Lord! Am I aught but a man,- an apostle?"

Their demand to show them signs and wonders before they could believe in his message, was not sincere request rather it was mockery of him, because they believed he is human being like them, and he will be unable to perform it, so they made these ridiculous demands to humiliate the Messenger of Allah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam}, and in the face of this mockery, Messenger of Allah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} is instructed to be patient and in humility declare that he is human , a apostle. We know this because Prophet Muhammed {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} performed many miracles, and there are many Sahih Ahadith in which miracles of Prophet Muhammed {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} are reported, hence his above verse is instructing humility in the face of adversity, and ridicule.


The words: You are human like ourselves! … He is nothing but a man like yourselves: … Has Allah sent a man to be Messenger? ...Is this (one) more than a man like yourselves?” are of kuffar, and this is the language they used, to belittle the mighty Messengers of Allah, and the excuse they used to reject their Prophet-hoods.

It is disrespectful of heretics to address RasoolAllah {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} with language which the kuffar used to insult, ridicule, the Ambiyah {alayhis salam}. And even after knowing well enough that Prophet Muhammed {sallalahu alayhi was'salam} was attacked with these words in his life time they the heretical believers {Muslims} walk on the path of kuffar, and do not refrain from use of such words while referring to him.
