The word bashar in the Qur’an is against the status of Holy Prophet – Ahmad Yaar al-Barelwi


According to Hakim al-Ummah of Barelwis Mufti Ahmad Yaar Khan Gujrati, the word bashar and certain verses of the Qur’an are apparently against the status of Holy Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace). He writes in Ja’ al-Haq,

“It implies that the verses like ‘Allah‘s hand is over their hands’ (48:10) and ‘The example of His light is that of a niche’ (24:35), etc. which are seemingly not proper for the Highness of Allah Most High are mutashabihat (ambiguous, whose definite meanings are unknown). Similarly, the verses like ‘I am but a bashar (human being)’ (18:110), etc, which are apparently against the status of the Holy Prophet are mutashabihat; therefore it is wrong to argue on the basis of the apparent meaning of such verses.”
