Prophet Ayub Being Free From Any Lowly Traits

Answered by Imam Yama Niazi 
Some people say Prophet Ayub had lowly qualities; this is not true, right? Since he was a prophet of Allah.
Dear questioner,
May Allah bless you and increase you in good.
Prophet Ayub ( peace be upon him) did not have any repulsive disease or worms, leading people to flee. We do not believe that any prophet, for that matter, would have a sickness like that.
[ Muhammad Ali Sabuni, Nubuwwa wa-l Ambiya (P. 278)]
Unfortunately, these stories have crept in from some of the Israelite traditions [People of the Book] and are not authentic.
Allah has sent the Prophets in the best forms with the best character, which attracted people. People were drawn to them by their praiseworthy qualities and knowledge, and miracles. To say they had some disease which made people flee from them and quite frankly disgusted with them ( Allah be our refuge) is not true! It is a lie, and no Muslim should transmit this lie.
The rank of the Prophets
…تِلْكَ الرُّسُلُ فَضَّلْنَا بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَى بَعْضٍ مِنْهُمْ مَنْ كَلَّمَ اللَّهُ وَرَفَعَ بَعْضَهُمْ دَرَجَاتٍ
“We have chosen some of those messengers above others. Allah spoke directly to some and raised some high in rank.” [Quran 2:253]
وَمَنْ يُطِعْ اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَأُوْلَئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ مِنْ النَّبِيِّينَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاءِ وَالصَّالِحِينَ وَحَسُنَ أُوْلَئِكَ رَفِيقًا
“And whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger will be in the company of those blessed by Allah: the prophets, the people of truth, the martyrs, and the righteous—what honorable company!” [Quran 4:69]
Necessary qualities of the Prophets
It is noteworthy to mention here the necessary qualities of the Prophets. In other words, it is that which can not be separated from the lofty status and character of the Prophets, and they are the following;
(1.)Truthfulness [Sidq]
(2.) Conveyance of that which they were ordered to convey to creation [Tabligh]
(3.) Faithfulness [Amana] This means that they do not fall into sin or detested matters.
(4.) Sagacity and intelligence [Fatana] This possessed sharp intellects which could respond to challenges posed to them, among other matters.

I hope that helps.
