Did the Prophets Ever Sin According to Islam?

From Where Did Luqman Hail?

Salam, Thank you for sending in your question to our website, brother Mohammed. There are two opinions about Luqman, the wise man, among Muslim scholars.

Stories of the Prophets in the Quran

Salam (Peace) Dear Sister, Thank you for contacting About Islam with your question. The stories of the Prophets have universal appeal, as they were chosen by God, as examples for humankind.
