JazakhAllahukhair.Difference Between Nabi and RasoolDear Asssalaoaliakum What is the difference betwwen Nabi and Rasool?Q: What’s the difference between a Nabi and a Rasool?What is the difference between a Nabi and a Rasool?I have had regular arguments with the Bidati firqa for addressing Nabi-e-Kareem Sallallahu Alaihiwasallam by saying “YA NABI” or “YA RASOOL”. When I tell them that only Allah SWT is everywhere and only Allah SWT can be addressed by “YA” they argue that even Rasool-e-Akram Sallallahu Alaihiwasallam is “Haazir & Naazir” and even he can be addressed as “YA NABI” or “YA RASOOL”. When I tell them that Rasool-e-Akram Sallallahu Alaihiwasallam is in Madina and not everywhere they say I am wrong. Please provide with Hawala of authentic books and ahadith from where I can convince them on the usage of “YA” for ALLAH SWT only.
