Question

Assalaamu Alaykum,

Is there any mu'tabar riwaayat regarding Nabi (saw) not having a shadow?

 

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

In general, what was unique, virtuous and almost miraculous was the feats of worship, sacrifice and good character the Prophets (alaihimus salaam) exhibited – as human beings.

 

“Say (O Muhammad): I am only a man like you. [al-Kahf 18:110]

“Their Messengers said to them: We are no more than human beings like you” [Ibraaheem 14:11]

However, the discussion has arisen due to conflicting pieces of evidence which have been referenced in the link below:
