Thy Throne Has Been Laid Above All Others?

This is another allegation which can only be quoted by such people who have not read the Qur’an or Ahadith properly. Allah States in the Qur’an:

 

يَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ اذْكُرُوا نِعْمَتِيَ الَّتِي أَنْعَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَأَنِّي فَضَّلْتُكُمْ عَلَى الْعَالَمِينَ {48}

 

O children of Israel! remember My favour which I bestowed upon you and that I exalted you above the peoples.(Chapter 2 verse 48)

 

Now does this ayah mean that they were better than the ummah of the Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw? Of course not, as we know our nation is the best of mankind, as Allah States:

 

كُنْتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنْكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ ۗ وَلَوْ آمَنَ أَهْلُ الْكِتَابِ لَكَانَ خَيْرًا لَهُمْ ۚ مِنْهُمُ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَأَكْثَرُهُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ{111}

 

You are the best people raised for the good of mankind; you enjoin what is good and forbid evil and believe in Allah. And if the People of the Book had believed, it would have surely been better for them. Some of them are believers, but most of them are disobedient.(Chapter 3 verse 111)

 

The next ayah talks about Ishmael, Elisha, and Jonah and Lot being exalted above the people but this does not make them better than Ibrahimas or the Holy Prophetsaw rather only refers to their individual timings they were sent in. Allah States:

 

وَإِسْمَاعِيلَ وَالْيَسَعَ وَيُونُسَ وَلُوطًا ۚ وَكُلًّا فَضَّلْنَا عَلَى الْعَالَمِينَ {87}

 

And We also guided Ishmael and Elisha and Jonah and Lot; and each one did We exalt above the people.(Chapter 6 verse 87)

 

Allah also States:

 

إِنَّ اللَّهَ اصْطَفَىٰ آدَمَ وَنُوحًا وَآلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَآلَ عِمْرَانَ عَلَى الْعَالَمِينَ {34}

 

Allah did choose Adam and Noah and the family of Abraham and the family of ‘Imran above all peoples —(Chapter 3 verse 34)

 

In no way does this state tht these Prophets were above the Holy Prophetsaw. This only refers to their times and his ayah in general despite using all, excludes the Holy Prophetsaw.

 

Ahmadas states in regards to is Master Muhammadsaw:

 

My orchard is sayings of Ahmadsaw
How beautiful is this name Ahmadsaw
There may be prophets innumerable
Above all is the station of Ahmadsaw

 

Furthermore, Ahmadas has explained this himself. He states:

 

I have exalted you above all the people of your time. (Arbain, No.2, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 17 Page 364)
