Is It Possible To Attain The Level And Status Of The Prophets? by Lukgaf(m): 7:14am On Aug 16
Question
What is the meaning of the hadith, “The people of Paradise will see the people of the chambers above them as they see a brilliant star far away on the horizon in the east or in the west, because of the difference in status between them.” They said: O Messenger of Allah, will those be the chambers of the Prophets that will be attained by no one else? He said: “No, by the One in Whose hand is my soul; they will be men who believed in Allah and believed in the Messengers.”? Does that mean that it is possible to attain

Praise be to Allah.

Firstly:

Paradise has various levels, and its people’s levels will vary according to their status and deeds. The Prophets will occupy the highest level of the people of Paradise, and no one will ever attain that level.

This has been explained previously in the answer to question no. 260581.

Secondly:

With regard to your question about attaining the level of the Prophets as mentioned in the hadith quoted, there are two scholarly views concerning that, which were mentioned by the commentators on the hadith.

Badr ad-Deen ad-Damaameeni (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Masaabeeh al-Jaami‘ (7/69): “No [Balaa], by the One in Whose hand is my soul; they will be men who believed in Allah and believed in the Messengers .” It was said that what is meant is that they will attain the level of the Prophets, and it was said that they will attain the dwellings (chambers) described here, but the dwellings of the Prophets will be above that. End quote.

Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Fath al-Baari (6/328):

The word Balaa may mean “yes”, these are the dwellings of the Prophets as Allah, may He be exalted, has affirmed that for them, but Allah, may He be exalted, may bless others by causing them to reach those dwellings. End quote.

Reaching the dwellings of the Prophets does not mean that one will be equal to them in terms of status and virtue.

Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger - those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions”

[an-Nisaa’ 4:69].

Imam al-Baghawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

“those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of the prophets” that is, they will not miss out on seeing the Prophets and sitting with them; it does not mean that they will be raised to the same level as the Prophets.

End quote from Tafseer al-Baghawi (2/247).

Imam Ibn ‘Atiyyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

What is meant by their being with them is that they will be in the same abode, and will share the same sense of joy and bliss, in which everyone who is there will be granted contentment with his lot, and he will not believe that he is less favoured than others, even though we know from the teachings of Islam that the people of Paradise will vary in status, commensurate with their good deeds, and commensurate with the grace that Allah bestows upon whomever He wills.

End quote from al-Muharrar al-Wajeez (2/76).

Az-Raazi (may Allah have mercy on him) said in Mafaateeh al-Ghayb (10/133):

The idea that the one who obeys Allah and obeys the Messenger will be with the Prophets and siddeeqeen does not mean that they will all be on the same level, because that would imply that they are all equal in status, and that is not possible.

Rather what is meant is that they will all be in Paradise in such a way that each of them will be able to see the other, despite the distance between them, because when the screen is removed, they will see one another, and if they want to visit and meet one another, they will be able to do that. That is what is meant by being with them in this case. End quote.

Imam Abu’l-‘Abbaas al-Qurtubi (may Allah have mercy on him) said in al-Mufhim:

This being with them means that they will be like them in being saved from the Fire and in attaining Paradise; otherwise, the people of Paradise will be in different levels and statuses according to their deeds and condition. This is indicated by the religious texts, as the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “A man will be with those whom he loves and will have what he has earned.” End quote.

The hadith mentioned, “… and he will have what he has earned” was narrated by at-Tirmidhi (2386) from Anas ibn Maalik, and was classed as saheeh by al-Albaani.

Part of the perfect blessings that Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, will bestow upon the people of Paradise is that He will not deprive them of meeting their loved ones there, even if they vary in levels.

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

When Allah, may He be exalted, wills to bring together [two people in Paradise], He will bring the one from the higher level down to the lower level.

A man said to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): I love you and cannot bear to be away from you, but you will be in the highest part of Paradise, so I will not see you. So Allah, may He be exalted, revealed the words (interpretation of the meaning):

“And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger - those will be with the ones upon whom Allah has bestowed favor of the prophets, the steadfast affirmers of truth, the martyrs and the righteous. And excellent are those as companions”

[an-Nisaa’ 4:69].

End quote from Mukhtasar al-Fataawa al-Masriyyah (270).

And Allah knows best.

In the end all of us will regret.

The regret of not doing the deeds of Jannah

or


the regret of not doing more and more good deeds that will increase our status in the Hereafter.


Jazaak Allah khayran bro. May we all be in the highest Jannah in the hereafter.

You already have your standard bearer. There's nobody whose standards are easier to surpass than the standards of Allah's prophet.
I have already passed his standard by being able to read and write , not murdering anyone, not marrying a 6 year old girl or sleeping with my daughter in law.

no its not possible to attain the level and status of the prophet..u can only attain the stage of a waliyi not the stage and status of a nobbiyi..Prophet Muhammad was the last prophet of ALLAH and immediately he died the door of NOBBIYI was locked...its been said that if the iman of the SAHABAS of the Prophet (SAW) is been placed in a basket and the baskets get full, the ones dropping on the floor is equal to the iman we muslims of today have...so with our iman that is not even up to that of the SAHABAS how can we attain the level and status of Nobbiyi..

The following are the things done by the prophet:

1. He killed and killed and killed. Common Era II 1: 49 Then they(Mohammed and his followers) fought and killed the inhabitants of Mecca in large numbers. He also killed a man named Jahl, one who worshipped many gods.


2. He raped and later married a 5 year old Aisha and then commanded others to do same. Common Era II 1: 50-57 He also killed a man named Jahl, one who worshipped many gods.
50. Now Jahl had argued over the forceful marriage of Mohammad to Aisha, who was a seven year old girl. And Jahl said, it is wrong for you, Mohammad, to forcefully marry a little girl who has not developed any sexual organs.
51. And Jahl used this act of Mohammad against the muslims, saying, you muslims have no shame at all. For the founder of your religion did take a little girl and raped her and made her an object of sex against her own wish.
52. Are there not many beautiful ladies in Mecca that Mohammad could marry? Why did he cast his eyes at Aisha my niece and force her, thereby destroying her underdeveloped vagina?
53. May the gods judge him for this evil acts. May he never have rest all the days of his life. Even if billions of people declare peace upon Mohammad, may he never find true peace for destroying the life of Aisha emotionally by this sexual abuse.
54. Why can a human be so insensitive as this? For he has many matured wife already, including Khadija the good woman, yet he has decided to ruin the life of a little girl of seven years old.
55. Let curse be upon Mohammad for this sexual assault.
56. Now when the muslims had heard the curses of Jahl, they informed Mohammad, saying, Jahl speaks ill of you.
57. Then Mohammad said, arise and let us give him a fight. So Mohammad led forces against Jahl and killed him in Mecca. And from then on, the muslims wrote evil concerning Jahl in all manner of things which he did not do. And all the good deeds of Jahl was turned to evil in the books written by the muslims.


3. He fought against the former religions, killing their followers.
4. He began another religion through terrorism. Otem Erectus 191: 23 You have heard how murhamid killed thousands of people to establish Ishlam in the world, but as for Otem, he shall neither kill animals for sacrifice or human beings before making known the truth of the universe which are long hidden.
5. He invented the cruel sharia law .
Bishuak 15: 7-11
7. Now many who read the confession of murhamid began to think of Alla as the Almighty God. And murhamid made laws, saying, he who marries from another religion should be killed and his partner should be killed also, be it a bride or a bridegroom.
8. And a homofal(female) who had been raped by a homofel(male) had no right to speak in the court rooms. For no homofal(female) is granted the privilege to fight for her right.
9. And the homofels(males) have all the rights to do whatever they wish to their wives.
10. For it is permitted that a homofel marries as much as four homofals, but this should not be so for a homofal.
11. Now strict laws were made to punish offenders, but none of the laws was applicable to murhamid and his priests. For they went after little children to do as a husband does to his wife.

6. He told so much lies about himself and Allah his god.

Yes, someone can attain his level by doing just the same thing, but do we really need anyone to step into his shoes? The numbers of terrorists, rapists, liars, religious fanatics, murderers etc we have on earth already, are they not too much for us. Think Nigerians, think.

Despite all the checks Seun puts on Islamic related topics,I really can't understand some people on this forum, they will even accept an oath just to come to a Muslim thread to slander them & what they believe in.


The interesting thing is you hardly see any Muslim insulting Christians or what they believe in despite it being easy for them.

TBH with you, the guy spoke the truth about Mohammed the murderer, but you are just being bitter. If Mohammed is existing today, he would have been killed like Osama Bin Laden and no good person would have regarded him as a celebrity. Mohammed was a terrorist and the originator of many terrorist groups we now have in the world.
