Are Prophet Muhammad’s parents in hell fire because they committed Shirk?



The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “The thing that I fear most for you is minor shirk.” They said: “O Messenger of Allah, what is minor shirk?” He said: “Showing off, for Allah will say on the Day when people are recompensed for their actions: ‘Go to those for whom you were showing off with your deeds in the world, and see what reward you find with them.’” (saheeh).


Prophet said:“Shirk among you will be more subtle than the footsteps of an ant, but I will teach you something which, if you do it, both minor and major shirk will be kept away from you. Say: Allaahumma inni a’oodhu bika an ushrika bika wa ana a’lam wa astaghfiruka lima la a’lam (O Allaah, I seek refuge with You from associating anything with You knowingly, & I seek Your forgiveness for that of which I am unaware).” (Saheeh al-Jaami).





Prophet (saw) said: “Tiyarah (superstitious belief in omens) is shirk, tiyarah is shirk,” three times (abu dawud).
Prophet (saw) said: “Incantations, amulets & love spells are shirk.”  Abu Dawood.





“….. “O my son, do not  associate anything with Allah.Indeed, association with him is great (oppression, injustice, wrong).” [Lukman Q31:13].

The Prophet said: “Whoever dies claiming that Allah has a rival, will enter Hell.” (Bukhari).
