Rebutting the Slanderous Accusation on the Ahlul Hadith; The Prophets made mistakes in the Din
Compiled and Translated
Abu Hibban & Abu Khuzaimah Ansaari
(In reply to the allegation on the Ahlul Hadith that they believe the Prophets made mistakes in matters of the din.)
I have looked at the passage of the aforementioned book and I did not find the said passage, the author has made a slanderous accusation here. The words of the author are that all of the prophets were not free from error (in worldly affairs) and not in the din as the authored slanderously alleged.
Furthermore, the author cited this passage from Mawlana Abu Shakur Silmi’s Kitab at-Tamhid Fil Ilm al-Aqa’id Wat Tawhid. Raising further allegations is also pointless because most of the people of Sunnah hold the same belief.
Imam Abu Hanifah has himself said in his book Fiqh al-Akbar, “without doubt (the prophets) did make mistakes and errors.” (Sharh Fiqh al-Akbar pg.69, Matba’a Hanafi)
Shaikh Abdul Haq Dehlawi Hanafi said, “The prophets would also do ijtihad and they would sometimes make mistakes.” (Sharh Futuh al-Ghayb pg.314)
For further references refer to

– Sharh Mussallim at-Thabut pg.349 Naulkishaur print, of Mawlana Abdul A’la Lucknowi
– Husami pg.98 Naulkishaur Print.
– Tawdhih Wat-Talwih pg.317 Naulkishaur print.

So the belief which the author attempted to level against us is null and we are free from it.
However others from amongst Ahlus Sunnah like Qadhi Abu Bakr Baqilani had this belief, they believe the prophets made mistakes and errors in propagating the din and in the rulings. They have clearly said it is possible the prophets erred and lied in spreading the rulings of the din.
