Salam alaykum fellow readers,

In discussing the fallibility of the Prophet (pbuh) with a sunni gentleman, he referred to suratul anfal:


as evidence that the prophet is indeed fallible, although to a different degree that we mere mortals are.

What is an appropriate response to this? Are these ayahs suggesting that the prophet (pbuh) made a mistake and jibra'il had to correct him?

Thank you!

Although I am not a believer, I would suggest the following to you:

"And we did not send any messenger, unless he should be obeyed by Allah's authority." (Quran 4:64)

Whoever obeys the Messenger, he indeed obeys Allah." (Quran 4:80)

"....and obey not from among them a sinner or an ungrateful one." (Quran 76:24)

Such instructions would have been impossible if the prophets were not infallible or if they were sinners.

You could also add to your reply that the Prophet was infallible and does not make mistakes when it comes to conveying the Message.
