The opposite of sinful:
 Was the Prophets of Allah fallible or infallible?
And I do not acquit myself. Indeed, 
nafsa(the soul)
is a persistent enjoiner of evil, illa(except) those upon which my Lord 
ima(bestows mercy).
Indeed, my Lord isForgiving and Merciful." Sura 12/53As stated by the
Qur‘an, t
he soul may incite evil; but the individual has the freedomand the authority to reject that invitation to evil. If the individual accepts the invitationto evil, he / she becomes accountable for that evil which being committed.Now, the prophets or the messengers, are among the exception as Allah has indicated.That is, there is something in the soul of these virtuous HUMANS that precludes theincitement of evil, and as such they never commit it.Their virtue is so high that they never even think of committing a sin. It is not that if aprophet or a messenger wanted to commit a sin, he can't; rather, it is that
"Mercy,"
 mentioned in the above ayat, that is bestowed upon him from Allah that precludes him

from doing so. As such, he is sinless and infallible to committing sinful acts eventhough they have full ability of committing any kind of sin.
And We did not send any messenger except to be obeyed by permission of Allah. Andif, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you, and asked forgiveness ofAllah and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found AllahAccepting of repentance and Merciful.
‖ Sura 4/64
 
Allah makes it clear what type of Character the Prophet had for us tofollow that is presented throughout the
Qur‘an:
 
"And most certainly you are on sublime standard of character." Sura 68/4A man committing mistakes and who is sinful does not deserve such compliments.Otherwise, Allah would not have ordered us to obey him.
In terms of the Messengers
ALLthe Prophets were free from any error with regard to conveying the message.
Prophets and Prophecy
A prophet is basically a spokesman for Yahweh / Allah, hence a person chosen by the
Most High to speak to people on Yahweh‘s
behalf and convey a message or teaching.Prophets were role models of holiness, scholarship and closeness to Yahweh. They setthe standards for the entire community.The Hebrew word for a prophet,
comes from the term nivsefatayim meaning
"fruit of the lips,"
which emphasizes the prophet's role as a speaker.
―Hear now My words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make Myself
known unto him in a vision, and will
speak unto him in a dream.‖ Num. 12:6.
 
―Hear now My words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make Myselfknown unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream.‖ Num. 12:6.
 
This statement explains the operation of what the Scriptures elsewhere call ―the gift ofprophecy.‖ 1 Cor. 13:2. It also explains the following scripture: ―The prophecy came not
in old time by the will of man: but holy men of Elohim spake as they were moved bythe Holy Spirit
.‖ 2 Peter 1:21.
