At one of these meeting, is it possible to ask, listen beloved friends, I have a question. This verse in the quran,
النَّبِيُّ أَوْلَىٰ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْ أَنْفُسِهِمْ ۖ
[Shakir 33:6] The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, [Pickthal 33:6] The Prophet is closer to the believers than their selves, [Yusufali 33:6] The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves,
What is your understanding, since we are gathered here for a Unity meeting, lets really unite and learn from each other.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) used it, as a question at Ghadir Khum and asked
"Then the Messenger of Allah continued:
"Do I not have more right over the believers than what they have over themselves?"
People cried and answered:
"Yes, O' Messenger of God."
"For whoever I am his Leader (mawla), 'Ali is his Leader (mawla)."
No Muslim disagrees till this point?
So, this should be a easy thing for you, only thing you are asking, in which capacity do you see the Prophet Muhammad( peace be upon him and his progeny) as Mawla?
What is your understanding of " Greater Right " or as per the verse 33:6 "greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, "
You are only reciting the Qur'an and asking for their valued opinion and understanding.
Why would this not be possible?
