It is commonly said the name of the Prophet Musa (as) is mentioned more than the name of the Prophet Muhammad—which is true—but what is often overlooked is that Allah speaks directly to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم in the second person throughout the Quran. We will explore some of these verses and those that indicate the great stature and unique characteristics given to our Prophet by Allah Ta‘ala. Finally, we will briefly examine some aspects of how the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم was a walking Quran.

About Shaykh Yahya Rhodus:

One of the most well-respected Muslim scholars in the Western world, Shaykh Yahya Rhodus, has spent the best part of two decades studying at some of the most prestigious learning institutions in the Muslim and Western world. Having embraced Islam at 19 in Santa Clara, California, he immediately began his study of the Islamic sciences with Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and visiting Mauritanian scholars, such as Shaykh Khatri Wuld Bayba and Shaykh Abd Allah Wuld Ahmadna. Shortly thereafter, he traveled to Mauritania to pursue a full-time course of study where he could learn from one of Mauritania’s most outstanding scholars, Murabit al-Hajj. Following an interim study period in Damascus, Syria, Shaykh Yahya went on to spend the best part of seven years in Tarim, in the Hadramawt Valley of Yemen. There, he studied at the reputable school, Dar al-Mustafa, with the renowned scholars Habib Umar bin Hafiz and Habib Ali al-Jifri. Since then, Shaykh Yahya has been the official translator for Habib Umar and Habib Ali at various international speaking engagements, including the Common Word Conference held at Yale University in 2008. Upon returning to the United States, Shaykh Yahya was a full-time instructor at Zaytuna College. He holds a B.A. in Near Eastern Studies from UC Berkeley and an M.A. in Islamic Studies from the Graduate Theological Union. He is pursuing a Ph.D. in Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Cambridge, England, in collaboration with Dr. Tim Winter (Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad). He is the Founding Director of al-Maqasid, where he is a full-time scholar and teacher.
