Some commentators claim that Muhammad did not sin but this is difficult to substantiate. On the other hand some use the fact of his being a sinner to show that he was just an ordinary human being. If indeed Muhammad did not sin why in Sura 33:56 are Muslims commanded to “Ask blessings on him”? The Arberry translation adds “and pray him peace.” If he was a sinless prophet (like Isa Al-Masih) why was he not taken directly to heaven? It is known that his body lies buried in Medina.
