Na’im al-Din Muradabadi Denying Bashariyya

January 1, 2012

In the tafsir called Khaza’in al-Irfan, Mawlana Naim al-Din Muradabadi ascribes to Shah Abdul Aziz the opinion that the existince of bashariya was no longer present in the Prophet. He says under the last verse of Surat al-Kahf:

‘aap ka bashariyat ka wujud aslan na raha, aur ghalba anware haq aap par ‘ala ad-dawam haasil ho’

“The existence of the humanness of the Prophet was not wholly present anymore”
