Five distinctions granted to the Holy Prophet


Last Updated on 4th December 2020

اَخْبَرَنَا جَابِرُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللہِ، أَنَّ النَّبِیَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ أُعْطِيْتُ خَمْسًا لَمْ يُعْطَهُنَّ أَحَدٌ قَبْلِىْ نُصِرْتُ بِالرُّعْبِ مَسِيْرَةَ شَهْرٍ، وَجُعِلَتْ لِىَ الْأَرْضُ مَسْجِدًا وَطَهُوْرًا، فَأَيُّمَا رَجُلٍ مِنْ أُمَّتِىْ أَدْرَكَتْهُ الصَّلاَةُ فَلْيُصَلِّ، وَأُحِلَّتْ لِىَ الْمَغَانِمُ وَلَمْ تَحِلَّ لِأَحَدٍ قَبْلِىْ، وَأُعْطِيْتُ الشَّفَاعَةَ، وَكَانَ النَّبِيُّ يُبْعَثُ إِلَى قَوْمِهِ خَاصَّةً، وَبُعِثْتُ إِلَى النَّاسِ عَامَّةً

Hazrat Jabirra ibn Abdullah, may Allah be pleased with him, narrated that the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said:

“I have been granted five distinctions which no one has been granted before me. Firstly, I have been reinforced with awe extending as far as a month’s journey. Secondly the entire earth has been made for me a mosque and a means of purity; therefore, anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due. Thirdly, the spoils of war have been made lawful for me; it was never made lawful before me. Fourthly, I have been granted the honour of intercession with the Lord. And fifthly, while prophets before me were commissioned to their particular people, I have been sent to the entire mankind.”

(Sahih Bukhari, Kitab al-Tayamam)
