There have been many differences on the subject of literacy or illiteracy of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) for a long time. Many have said that he was not able to read or write throughout his life. They ratiocinate depending on the words of (ommi) and (ommien) in Holy Quran, meaning illiterate in dictionaries, or the story of the treaty of Hudaybiyya. This can be considered as an unacceptable argument. There are others; however, who reasonably believe the Prophet was able to write and read. The Prophet’s illiteracy can be assessed from the points of his Holiness spiritual dignity, Quranic verses, narratives, rationality and natural courses. A research on Quranic verses and narratives, and intellectual thoughts makes it clear that the Holy Prophet was able to read and write as well.
