Muslim's theologians are unanimous in the divinity of revelation; they have only disputed about the nature of divine words: whether they are eternal or temporal created. Shaykh Mufid believes in the divinity of revelation. According to him, in the process of revelation, God creates the words and the prophet receives them directly or indirectly and then proclaims them to the people. Mufid, however, denies the collective descent of the revelation. His belief in the infallibility of the prophets, the miraculousness of the Qur'an, and Seal of the Prophethood show his view about the divinity of revelation.
