    I found a lecture attempting to clear a misconception of the Holy Prophet which unfortunately is believed among many Muslims, and truly this is a great shame.

    I tried to watch it but just too long.
    I fast-forwarded through some of it but it seems he hasn't got much proof and just most of it is personal input.
    Also for someone titled as Dr he seems to not verify his sources or check gradings.
    Unless the aim was to simple throw dirt at ''other'' madhab in which case it is even worse and he becomes an unreliable source of deen.

    Firstly, do you mean proof that other Muslims believe this, or proof of his own beliefs?

    The video is part of a series and thus is better seen in junction with some other lectures (two of which I have posted on this site). Of course, that wouldn't take 5 minutes.

    He is simply putting forth arguments against the idea spread about the Prophet announcing his Prophethood, and how some of the unfortunate beliefs surrounding this. Attempting to show how the *false* stories attributed to him don't fit with the core teachings of Islam.

    The aim certainly was not to "throw dirt at other madhab", but rather to bring forth other beliefs regarding the Prophet and the corresponding issues attached. There's a difference between humiliating and downgrading other people's beliefs, and to identify flaws in their beliefs.

    For instance, the unfortunate idea of the Prophet making errors and mistakes, when evidently this is contrary to the Quran.

    Regarding the "dr" part, one shouldn't judge a speaker simply on verifying sources, despite the likely possibility of him researching prior to the lecture.

    Nonetheless, thank you for watching some of the lecture.
