The great scholar and saint of the monotheists and Ahlul Hadith, Abdullah Ghaznawi (1811-1879) (whose biography is given on the Salafi ‘Umm-Ul-Qura Publications’ website) was apparently inspired with Verses of the Holy Qur’an. For example, his son, Abdul Jabbar Ghaznawi, writes in his biography that the Ayah of the Holy Qur’an concerning the Messiah of Nazareth was inspired to Abdullah Ghaznawi about himself:
إِنْ هُوَ إِلَّا عَبْدٌ أَنْعَمْنَا عَلَيْهِ
He was not but a servant upon whom We bestowed favor

In a previous entry, I quoted from the same biography (Abdul Jabbar Ghaznawi) who answered the objection about the revelation of a Quraanic Ayah concerning a Prophet or where a specific Prophet is being addressed being revealed or inspired to a saint of this Umma.
