Obeying from the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad PBUH
Let’s ensure that we are very careful in quoting, interpreting, and in general stating whatever is in the Quran and not attribute anything as words of Allah unless we are confident about the truth. Thus, we should be careful when saying, “Allah says (or said) so and so” unless we know the truth. We can see from the attached verse that doing so can be classified as a “lie” by Allah. Sheikh Modudi highlights an example in Tafeem-ul-Quran, when he provides an example of “some people who stressed the superhuman character of the Prophet (peace be on him) and misread the following verse: innama ana basharun mithlukum. (The Holy Qur’an 18: 110)
(I am nothing but a human being like you), replacing innama by inna ma ana that translates as: ‘(O Prophet), say to them: “I am not a human being like you.” Thus, we see how the message can be easily distorted.
