Prophets

In religion, a prophet is an individual who is regarded as being in contact with a divine being and is said to speak on that entity's behalf, serving as an intermediary with humanity by delivering messages or teachings from the supernatural source to other people. The message that the prophet conveys is called a prophecy.

The Twelve Infallible Imams from Ahlul Bayt (AS) did inherit the knowledge of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA). That is why, their status is from his status as Allah says in Quran ذُرِّيّةً بَعْضُها مِن بَعض A Progeny (of the Prophet) which part from him. Their status is higher than everyone except the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) who is The Highest over all creatures.

The status of all the Infallible Imams (AS) is derived from the status of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) which is the highest among all the Prophets before him.
Allah says in Quran: A Progeny every one from them is from the others ذُرّيّةً بَعضُها مِن بَعض

This means that the Prophet's status and his Progeny's status are one from the another.

It is a wrong translation. All the Prophets are infallible and no Prophet committed any type of sin. Some acts from the prophets are not accepted by some people and called by some as sinful acts but it is in fact never sinful acts according to Allah.

Prophet Adam (AS) never went against Allah's order. We need to take the meanings of Quranic verses from the Prophet (SAWA) and not from others. The blame on Adam and other prophets has come from non Muslims through Israelites to some Muslims. Authentic Hadeeth states that Adam was been advised to avoid that tree but he was never been ordered to avoid it. There is a big difference between the order which is obligatory to be obeyed, and the advice which is recommended to be taken.

We have many books in this regard e.g. Tanzeeh al-Anbiyaa' by al-Shaikh al-Mufeed and Tanzeeh al-Anbiyaa' by al-Shaikh al-Murtadha and many other books.

Fatima (AS) is part of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) as he said in the authentic Hadeeth narrated in Shia and Sunni books فاطمة بضعة مني.
- (Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Hadeeth number 3437 and 3483)

- Saheeh Muslim; 4482 and 4483).

Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal; 15539.

Trmithi; 3802 and 3804.

al-Mustadrak ALAL-Saheehain by Al-Haakim Al-Nisabori ; 4747 and 4751. And many other Sunni main books of Hadeeth.

As the status of the Prophet Muhammad is the best and the highest among all the prophets, Fatimah who is part from him is higher in her degree from all the previous prophets. If fact no one can be compared with Fatimah after her father and her husband. She is the best human being after her father and her husband.

Not true. There is no evidence whatsoever to support such claim.

Prophets and Infallible Imams were born biologically like human beings but their status with Allah (SWT) is great and they are the most pure among all human beings. The Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and his holy Progeny are mentioned in Quran (33:33) as The Most Purified. We believe that they are human beings and not angles, but their status is higher than all the great angles, and Allah only knows their status as our intellectual limits are less than containing their great status. The Prophetic Hadeeth says: O Ali, No one knows Allah fully but myself and you, and no one knows me fully but only Allah and you,  and no one knows you fully but Allah and myself. ( Manaqib Aal Abi Talib and Mukhtasar Basaa'r al-Darajaat and Madinatul Ma'aajiz and other books).

The whole knowledge of The Unseen (Al-Ghaib) is with Allah (SWT) (Say: None in the heavens and the earth knows The (whole) Ghalib ( The Unseen) except Allah). (Sura 27, verse 65) and He grants whatever He wants to whomever He wants from His humble servants some part of that knowledge. Some prophets  get more than other prophets depending the degree of knowledge, dedication and humbleness. The greatest degree is for the Best Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and his Holy Progeny Ahlul Bayt (AS). Allah (SWT) granted some prophets more degree than other prophets (We have granted some prophets more degrees than other prophets) (Sura 17, verse 55). The gift of the knowledge of unseen from Allah (SWT) will vary between prophet to another prophet.

The status and knowledge of the Prophet Muhammad ( SAWA) is the greatest above all the Prophets. His Progeny are from him as Allah says in Quran ( A Progeny (of the Prophet) from him and he is from them (3:34).

The knowledge of the Prophet Muhammad is higher than the knowledge of all previous prophets. Since his Progeny inherited and got his knowledge, their knowledge is higher than all human beings except the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA).

Bismillah

Thank you for your question. The highest spiritual status for an individual is not defined as a specific station, as in the higher levels of spirituality as well as a vertical progression, there is a realization of a person's individual gifts. There is no competition as all are different flowers in the same garden. The journey to God is unlimited and the highest stations have been expressed as a type of oneness, where the individual ego of the wayfarer is annihilated and they subsist in the subsistence of God. But writers in practical mysticism acknowledge that only so much can be expressed past this level. So in this sense, there is no limit to a person's status as the journey is an unlimited one and a time comes where it is no longer dependent on effort either.

As for our levels compared to the Prophet (saw) and the Infallibles (as), they are the ones who opened the ways for the rest of us to be wayfarers. All that wayfarers experience of true unveiling and station is part of the Full Muhammadan Unveiling. Their (as) status before Allah is something that is unimaginable and a person should seek to fulfill their own path by their (as) help rather than aim to equal or overtake them (as). Perhaps, an individual will be granted a place amongst their (as) most humble servants, in their never-ending journey to the Beloved.

May you always be successful

It is an established fact that the status of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) is higher than the status of all the previous prophets. The status of Ameerul Mo'mineen Ali (AS) is from the status of the Prophet Muhammad, despite the fact that Imam Ali (AS) is not a prophet but he was described in Quran like the self of the Prophet but not a prophet (وأنفسنا وأنفسكم). 
The Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) said: Alivis from me and I am from Ali ( إنه مني وأنا منه) 

Prophetic Hadeeth says: O Ali, Allah has granted you whatever He granted me except the Prophet hood.

The status of Ameerul Mo'mineen Ali (AS) is part and parcel from the status of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and obviously it is higher than the status of all the previous prophets (AS).

Wassalam.
