Is the ''Mulham'' Correct in Everything?
Question:

Is the ''Mulham''[1] Correct in Everything?
Answer:

The meaning of this would be that we are judging him as having infallibility, and no one is infallible except the Messengers (may the salawaat of Allah and His salutations be upon them) - except with the Shee`ah, for they hold that their Imaams are infallible, and this is an errant saying, because it opposes what the Scholars of this nation have agreed upon in that there is no infallibility for anyone except the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam). And in Allaah lies success.

____________________________

[1] A person who is ''mulham'' is one in whose heart Allaah places something - however it is not possible for anyone to differentiate between this (which is ilhaam from Allaah) and between a normal thought that occurs in the mind. The Soofees however have broadened the meaning of ilhaam to include every thought or idea which occurs irrespective of whether it arises due to Shaytaan, or due to ilhaam from ar-Rahmaan.
