Prophet of Allah (SAW) Parents

 In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

 Answer

There are three views with regards to the belief of the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam’s parents.

They died as disbelievers but they wont be punished because they passed away before the Prophethood of their son.

  1. They died in disbelief but they were raised up again and brought Imaan at the hands of their son.
  2. Either through their intellect or by following the religion of the Prophet Ibrahim, they came to know the prohibition of worshipping anyone besides Allah.  They were aware that a Prophet will come and had a firm intention to believe in him.

However, the practice of the Salaf has been to remain silent on such issues.  (Mazaahirul Haqq p.478 v.2)
