Hadith on Muhammad: Whoever says this about the Prophet is a liar

Masruq reported: I asked Aisha, “O mother, did Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, see his Lord?” Aisha said, “What you said makes my hair stand on end! Know that if someone tells you one of three things, he is a liar. Whoever tells you that Muhammad saw his Lord is a liar.” Then, she recited the verse, “No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision, for He is the Subtle, the Aware,” (6:103) and, “It is not for a man that Allah speak to him but by inspiration, or from behind a veil,” (42:51). Aisha said, “Whoever tells you that the Prophet knows what will happen tomorrow is a liar.” Then, she recited the verse, “No soul can know what it will earn tomorrow,” (31:34). Aisha said, “Whoever tells you that the Prophet concealed the revelation is a liar.” Then, she recited the verse, “O Messenger, proclaim the message which has been sent to you from your Lord,” (5:67). Aisha said, “But the Prophet did see Gabriel twice in his natural form.”
