A follow up query on the Hadith on the 24 parts of Nubuwwah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

What are the twenty four/twenty five parts of the Prophethood mentioned in this answer?



The commentators explain, the number twenty four/twenty five is to show abundance and not to restrict it to a specific number.

(Tuhfatul Ahwadhi, Hadith: 2010)


Therefore the qualities mentioned in the Hadith are merely a portion of Nubuwwah/a portion of the teachings of the Ambiya.

(Also see: Sharh ibn Raslan, Hadith: 4776)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
