Regarding the title Ummi


As-salamu alaykum Shaykh Gibril

Some say that it is incorrect to say the Messenger salAllahu alayhi wa salim knows how to read and write. They quote Qadi Iyad in Ikmal (6:151) stating that this was only referring to a specific incident. What is correct?


Waalaykumussalam warahmatullah,

Our teacher Shaykh Nur al-Din `Itr said it is not precluded that the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, very quickly learnt it by the time he left this dunya.

Hajj Gibril Haddad
