How sound is the hadeeth? Were it not for Muhammad, I would not have created you?
Asalamualaykum, How sound is the hadeeth ?Were it not for Muhammad, I would not have created you?? What is your opinion on this hadeeth? It was narrated that ?Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: the Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) said: ?When Adam committed his sin, he said: ?O Lord, I ask You by virtue of Muhammad to forgive me.? Allaah said: ?O Adam, how do you know Muhammad when I have not created him yet?? He said: ?O Lord, because when You created me with Your hand and breathed into me the soul that Your created for me, I lifted my head and I saw it written on the pillars of the Throne: Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah Muhammad Rasool Allaah, and I knew that You would not attach to Your name any but the most beloved of creation to You.? Allaah said: ?You have spoken the truth, O Adam, for he is the most beloved of creation to Me, and as you asked Me by virtue of him, I have forgiven you. Were it not for Muhammad I would not have created you.??.
The Hadith is right as per the meaning and content as Mufti Rasheed Ahmad wrote in his ?Ahsanul Fatawa?:
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
