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



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:
