Thank you. I shall not directly engage with you on this issue any further. Consider yourself having won victory by default because I am simply too exhausted with you to continue.
Wow PORUS. You beat me to it!
Since we're closing this topic (if we are)
Prophet cannot go wrong:
وما ينطق عن الهوى ان هو الا وحي يوحى - Surah Najm (The Prophet doesn't say ANYTHING except as the Wahye says so) - It shoes the Prophet simply cannot make a mistake.
and فاستعصم are two interpretations of Masum according to DB Shia belief.
IF you believe the Prophet could make mistakes, then there is a possibility that he could've made a few mistakes here an there in the Quran, or preaching Islam, which is totally unacceptable. Rather it is more like a Salman Rushdie thought.
I hate Salman Rushdie to the core for what he has said, BUT if you think about it, you can't blame him for what he wrote, when the main stream Sunni/Wahabi Muslims actually claim the Prophet was imperfect (could have made mistakes!)! He just repeated what THEY (Sunni/Wahabis) are saying with more incorrect details!
Also, i'd further like to add just to clarify the incorrect claim:
the prophet (saw) couldn't read or write
This isn't the belief of Dawoodi Bohras. According to our sources this is incorrect.
Porus, what is your stance on this? And Proggies? (Sunni s and Wahabis are of ANAJMI s belief, I believe)
