Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

Aqidah of Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jamaah is that Allah ta’ala created the prophet (sallallahu alahi wa sallam) out of (Noor) light before any other thing and it was a created light. This noor is never a part from Allah’s noor. Anyone who believes the prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) noor a part of Allah ta’ala’s noor is a belief of shirk and similitude to that of Christians. But the holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is the light of guidance, that Through this guidance light, many have found guidance.

In Surah Maaidah, Allah Ta’ala states, ‘Indeed there has come to you from Allah Ta’ala a light (noor) (Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) and a plain book (Qur’aan) wherein Allah guides all those who seek his good pleasure to ways of peace.’

Rasulullah (Sallallahu-Alaihiwasallam) was certainly a human being as also mentioned in the Quran and Ahadith.

Allah Ta’ala states in the Qur’aan, ‘Say (O Muhammad), indeed I am a human like yourselves.’

The explanation of Rasulullah being Noor and not a human being is incorrect.

And Only Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
