Quran Verses About Prophet Muhammad in Arabic

God’s Messenger Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is a Messenger chosen by our Lord – a Messenger on the right path.

Muhammad is the Messenger of God; and those who are in his company are firm and unyielding against the unbelievers, and compassionate among themselves. You see them (constant in the Prayer) bowing down and prostrating, seeking favor with God and His approval and good pleasure. Their marks are on their faces, traced by prostration. This is their description in the Torah; and their description in the Gospel: like a seed that has sprouted its shoot, then it has strengthened it, and then risen firmly on its stem, delighting the sowers (with joy and wonder), that through them He fills the unbelievers with rage. God has promised all those among them who believe and do good, righteous deeds forgiveness (to bring unforeseen blessings) and a tremendous reward. (al-Fath 48:29)

Ya-Sin. By the Wise Qur’an, you are indeed one of the Messengers (commissioned to convey God’s Message), upon a straight path. (Ya-Sin 36:1-4)

As We have sent among you a Messenger of your own, reciting to you Our Revelations, and purifying you (of false beliefs and doctrines, and sins, and all kinds of uncleanness), and instructing you in the Book and the Wisdom, and instructing you in whatever you (must but) do not know. (al-Baqarah 2:151)

He it is Who has sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger of their own, reciting to them His Revelations, and purifying them (of false beliefs and doctrines, and sins, and all kinds of uncleanness), and instructing them in the Book and the Wisdom, whereas before that they were indeed lost in obvious error. (al-Jumu’ah 62:2)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Quran 1: The Prophet and the Night Prayer

O you enwrapped one, (under the heavy responsibility of Messengership)! Rise to keep vigil at night, except a little: Half of it, or lessen it a little. Or add to it (a little). And pray and recite the Qur’an calmly and distinctly (with your mind and heart concentrated on it). We will surely charge you with a weighty Word (and with applying it in your daily life, and conveying it to others). Rising and praying at night impresses (mind and heart) most strongly and (makes) recitation more certain and upright. For by day you have extended preoccupations. And keep in remembrance the Name of your Lord (and mention It in your Prayer), and devote yourself to Him whole-heartedly. (al-Muzzammil 1-8)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Quran 2: The Revelation Coming Down To the Prophet

By the star when it goes down, Your Companion (the Messenger) has neither gone astray, nor adopted a wrong way (in belief and action). He does not speak on his own, out of his own desire; That (which he conveys to you) is but a Revelation that is revealed to him. One of forceful might (Gabriel) has taught it; One firm, with the ability to penetrate and perfect in spirit, rose with all his splendor. When he was in the highest part of the horizon. Then, he drew near and came close, So he was (so near that there was left only the distance between) the strings of two bows (put adjacent to each other), or even nearer (than that). And He revealed to His servant what He revealed. The heart did not contradict what he saw (with his eyes). Will you then dispute with him concerning what he saw? (an-Najm 53:1-12)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Quran 3: The Revelation Collected in the Prophet’s Heart

(O Prophet!) Move not your tongue to hasten it (for safekeeping in your heart). Surely it is for Us to collect it (in your heart) and enable you to recite it (by heart). So when We recite it, follow its recitation. Thereafter, it is for Us to explain it. (al-Qiyamah 75:16-19)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Quran 4: God’s Guarantee to Establish the Qur’an in the Prophet’s Heart

Absolutely exalted is God, the Supreme Sovereign, the Absolute Truth and Ever-Constant. Do not show haste (O Messenger) with (the receiving and memorizing of any Revelation included in) the Qur’an before it has been revealed to you in full, but say: “My Lord, increase me in knowledge.” (Ta-Ha 20:114)

(For the guidance of humankind,) We will establish the Qur’an in your heart and have you recite (it to others), so you will not forget (anything of it), except what God wills. Surely He knows all that is manifest and all that is hidden (including your outward and inward states). We will guide you to the easiest path (in all your affairs). (al-A’la 87:6-8)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Quran 5: The Prophet’s Being Unlettered

You did not (O Messenger) read of any book before it (the revelation of this Qur’an), nor did you write one with your right (or left) hand. For then, those who have ever sought to disprove the truth might have a reason to doubt (it). (al-Ankabut 29:48)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Quran 6: Belief in God and His Messenger

Believe in God and His Messenger, and spend (in God’s cause) out of all that He has entrusted to you those among you who believe and spend (in God’s cause), for them there is a great reward. What is the matter with you that you do not believe in God (as His being God requires), when the Messenger calls you to believe in your Lord (Who has created and sustains you), and He has indeed taken your pledge, if you are true believers? He it is Who sends down to His servant Revelations clear as evidence and in meaning in order to lead you out of all kinds of darkness into the light. Surely God is All-Pitying, All-Compassionate toward you. (al-Hadid 57:7-9)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Quran 7: Call to Believe in God’s Messenger

O you who believe! Keep from disobedience to God in reverence for Him and piety, and truly believe in His Messenger (Muhammad). He will grant you twofold of His mercy (one for your believing in all the previous Prophets, and one for the Last Prophet), and He will appoint for you a light to move (on the Straight Path in this world, leading to Paradise in the Hereafter), and He will forgive you. God is All-Forgiving, All-Compassionate. (al-Hadid 57:28)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Quran 8: He Is the Seal of the Prophets

(O believers, know that) Muhammad is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Messenger of God and the Seal of the Prophets. God has full knowledge of everything. (al-Ahzab 33:40)
