In this article, we discuss whether the Qur’an calls the believers as “slaves” or “servants” of Prophet Muhammad –on him be the peace and blessings of Allah- instead of slaves of Allah and hence either the Qur’an makes a mistake or commits shirk (associating partners with Allah).
أَلَمْ يَعْلَمُوۤاْ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ يَقْبَلُ ٱلتَّوْبَةَ عَنْ عِبَادِهِ وَيَأْخُذُ ٱلصَّدَقَاتِ وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلتَّوَّابُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ
“Know they not that Allah accepts repentance from His servants.”
Say, "The angel of death will take you who has been entrusted with you. Then to your Lord you will be returned."
