Q: What are the causes of someone proclaiming that all the Prophets except the Last Prophet (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) were “sinners”? What should one do in instances such as these when someone superior to you in a professional setting says such things?
A: These types of mistakes are generally made by people who lack sound knowledge and who have not acquired the true love and flavour of deen. In deeni matters such people should not be referred to. Making such statements regarding the Ambiyaa (alayhimus salaam) shows that their Imaan is doubtful.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
