Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was sent as a teacher

Question

Is this a Hadith?

‘Ana mu’allimun’ (انا معلّم- I am a teacher)

 

Answer

I have not come across these words in a Hadith.

 

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded a Hadith wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, ‘بعثني معلّما’ [Ba’athani mu’alliman- Allah sent me as a teacher].

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 1478. See here)

 

Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahullah) has recorded the following words on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma): ‘بعثت معلّما’ [Bu’ithtu mu’alliman- I have been sent as a teacher].

(Sunan ibn Majah, Hadith: 229)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
