    i must add however, that the ayah above is specific for mushriks (according to ibn abbas' explanation of the ayah) or infidels in general.

    but the concept that is derived is that any sin is sinning against the prophet because he is the lawgiver.

    Allah knows best.

    there is a straightforward explanation:

    "take what the Messenger has given you and abstain from what he has forbidden'. this is because, "those who have obeyed the Messenger have obeyed Allah".


    that day when the infidels and those who have disobeyed the Messenger will wish that they would have been leveled with the earth; they shall not be able to hide anything from Allah.

    in this ayah, all the sins are considered as having sinned against the prophet - because sins are mentioned immediately after faith [or lack thereof] which is a generic statement. so the ayah is obvious, and from which sayyidi alaHazrat derives his phrase:

    karke tumhare gunah mangeN tumhari panah
    tum kaho daaman meiN aa, tum pe karoroN durud

    we sin against you [disobey you], and seek your refuge
    and say, 'come to me!', a billion salawat on thee!

    this is also said in another verse:

    chor Hakim se chupa kartey haiN yaaN uskey khilaaf,
    tere daaman pe chupe chor anokhaa teraa!

    a thief hides from the rulers, but here it is just the opposite -
    this strange thief of yours, hides in your own garment [gets your protection]

    we have disobeyed him in many things - like omitting his sunnahs and following our nafses - may Allah forgive us and improve our state... in a Hadith, RasulAllah sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam has said that it pains him when his followers sin; thus hurting him is indeed a great sin itself.

    Allah ta'ala knows best.

    jazakallah khair,

    "tumhare gunah" also as in "maiN tumhara gunahgaar hooN'
    meaning I have wronged you.

    and anyone who has commitetd any Sharai sin has wronged the Prophet sallahu `alaihi wa sallam who is the messenger of the Shariah..

    and I seek refuge in Allah from my own innumerable sins.

    In his beautiful salam, Ka'be ke badrudduja, Imam Ahmad Rida has said in one couplet:

    Kar ke tumhare gunah maangeiN tumhari panah
    Tum kaho daman meiN aa tum pe kararoN durood

    This couplet is explained by another one in the same salam:

    Apne khatawar ko apne hi daman meiN lo
    Kawn kare ye bhala tum pe karoroN durood

    This salam was much loved by alaHazrat. So much so that he advised:

    "Do not delay my janaza without a shar'i reason and read Ka'be ke badrudduja in front of my janaza. Do not recite anything in my praise" (Wisaya).

    In the first couplet I quoted, tumhare gunah refers to two things:

    (1) Those sins which are gained due to the insults which the ummati made against the dear Prophet sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam
    (2) Those sins which are sins because the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam made them sins.

    Hakeem al-Ummah Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan Na'imi, in his explanation of Sura Fatah, verse 2 writes:

    Dhanbika, Mufti Sahib explains from Tafsir Ruh al-Bayan, refers to those sins which the Prophet made sins. Since if it were not for the arrival of the dear Messenger sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam, no act would be a sin. So, dhanbika refers to the acts which Rasoolallah sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam made a sin.

    e.g. A bank note which is issued by the government, we will call it the government's note.
    The note will be called the dollar of America or the American dollar. Similarly, those sins which Rasoolallah called sins, can be called the sins of Rasoolallah sallallahu 'alaihi wasallam meaning that act which was made a sin by him. Otherwise, the Prophets are free from sin.

    Hence, the couplet of Imam Ahmad Rida means (tumhare gunah), those acts which you made sins and we commited them and then we went to him to get them forgiven.
