Orientalists & Hadeeth Origin

Posted in Hadith Studies with tags , , , , , , on September 24, 2014 by TheAuthenticBase

The Orientalist Schacht claims that hadeeth were all fabricated by the companions and successors whenever they saw a good practise in the lands they conquered. He says: “Mutilation as a punishment for coin clippers and counterfeiters is advocated by spurious “hadeeths” quoted in Baladhooree. R.S. Lopez in Byzantine, 16/445 ff, has suggested a Byzantine origin. If this is correct, it would be a case of proposed adoption of a judicial practice which existed in the conquered territories.” [Foreign Elements, 14]

Ash-Shaykh M. M. Al-Azami replies to this by stating: “In Baladhooree, there are references to the practice of Marwaan and Abaan Ibn ‘Uthmaan who punished coin-clippers by flogging or chopping off the hand. But there is no hadeeth; neither spurious nor authentic. Thus his statement is wrong.

Further, if they punished, and Romans also used to punish this crime, then to claim that it might have been taken from them is ridiculous. It is doubtful whether any government would reward the coin-clippers for their “fine-art” and “handskill”. It is quite normal that every government would punish them.” [Studies In Early Hadeeth Literature, p. 267]

Some Conditions For Accepting Narrations

Posted in Hadith Studies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2013 by TheAuthenticBase

Scholars lay down rules that explained in detail the criteria for accepting the narrations of a narrator and for rejecting them. The following four groups constitute the most important categories of narrators whose narrations are not accepted:

1) The liars who lied upon the Messenger of Allaah (saw). The scholars agree that narrations of hadeeth are not accepted from one who lied even once about the Prophet (saw). They also agree that it is one of the greatest sins to lie about the Prophet (saw). See this post for more info on whether a liar in hadeeth is a disbeliever or not.

2) The liars. Those who lie in their general talk, even if they never lied about the messenger of Allaah (saw). Scholars agree that if someone is known to have lied even once, then his narrations are not accepted. IMaam Maalike said, “But if one repents for his lies and then becomes known for truthfulness and uprightness, then the majority of scholars hold that both his repentance and narrations are accepted.”

3) The people of innovation and desires. The scholars agree that a narration is not accepted from an innovator who sinks into disbelief because of his innovation. The same ruling applies to the one who deems lying as being lawful, though he does not go into disbelief because of his innovation.

‘Alee’s Ruling On Killing Those Who Fabricate Hadeeths

Posted in Hadith Studies with tags , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2012 by TheAuthenticBase

According to Amir al-Mu’mineen ‘Ali ibn Abee Taalib, the discipling punishment could reach the level of execution if the crime was very serious and had a far-reaching impact.

One such crime was fabricating hadiths and attributing them to the Messenger of Allaah (saw), because this action leads to introducing things into Islaam that are not part of it; this causes people to deviate from the religion that Allaah (swt) chose for them. Hence he used to say:

Whoever tells a lie about the Prophet (saw), strike his neck.”

[The Life And Times Of ‘Alee, by ‘Alee Muhammad As-Sallaabee, p. 534]

Is A Fabricator Of Hadeeth A Disbeliever?

Posted in Hadith Studies with tags , , , , , , , , on February 5, 2012 by TheAuthenticBase

Rejecting The Narrations Of Fabricators 

The scholars agree that narrations of hadeeth are not accepted from one who lied even once about the Prophet (saw). They also agree that it is one of the greatest sins to lie about the Prophet (saw).

Is The Repentance Of A Fabricator Accepted?

There is a difference of opinion over this matter.

Opinion 1) Imaam Maalik said:

“But if one repents for his lies and then becomes known for truthfulness and uprightness, then the majority of scholars hold that both his repentance and narrations are accepted.”

Opinion 2) Imaaam Maalik said:

“Aboo Bakr As-Sairafee dissented, saying: ‘When we reject the narration of anyone for a lie that he was exposed with, we never return to accepting his narrations, not even after an outward repentance.‘ “

These scholars have said that anyone who has deliberately lied concerning a hadeeth or is involved in forgery is disqualified for ever and may never be admitted again even if he repents and corrects himself. [Al-Kifaaya of Al-Baghdaadee, p. 145]

A Few Fabricated Hadeeths That The Shee’ah Relate

Posted in Shiasm Exposed with tags , , , , , on January 9, 2012 by TheAuthenticBase

From among the fabricated hadeeth related from the Raafidah (shee’ah) are:

Fabrication 1) The Messenger of Allaah (saw) took ‘Alee by the hand, in front of all the Sahaabah, and said, “This is who I appoint, my brother, and the Caliph after me, so listen to him and obey.”

Fabrication 2) “Whoever wishes to see Aadam in his knowledge; Noah in his piety; Ibraaheem in his forbearance; Moosaa in his dignity; And ‘Eesaa in his worship, then let him look at ‘Alee.”

Fabrication 3) “I am the balance of knowledge, ‘Alee is its two scales, Al-Hasan and Al-Husain are its strings, And Faatimah is its link. And the Imaams from us are its pillars. In it is weighed the deeds of those who love us and those who hate us.”

Fabrication 4) “The love of ‘Alee is a good deed and with it one is not harmed by a sin; hating him is a sin and with it one is not benefited by a good deed.”

Note that just as they invent lies in order to praise the family of the Prophet (saw), they also invent lies to belittle the Companions, especially Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar (ra). For example, in one of their narrations, ‘Umar (ra) supposedly tied a rope around ‘Alee’s neck, so that he could be led like a mount, and Faatimah (ra) was behind them screaming. [Sharh Nahj Al-Balaaghah, 1/135]

Virtues of Chapters in the Qur’aan – Surat Al Baqarah

By Shaykh Al-Albaani

The Authentic Ahaadeeth

1) On the Authority of Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allaah –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Do not turn your homes into graves, Indeed the Shaytaan flees from a house that Suratul Baqarah is read in.
[Collected by Muslim]

2) On the Authority of bu Mas’ood – may Allaah be pleased with him – the Prophet of Allaah –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

The last two Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah will suffice whoever reads them in a night.
[Collected by al Bukhaaree. T.N. Starting from Aman ar Rasool…it doesn’t mean the last two Ayaat literally as explained by ibn Hajar and others.]

3) On the authority of Abu Umaamah – may Allaah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allaah – صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Whoever reads Ayatul Kursee after every obligatory prayer, nothing will prevent this person from entering Jannah except death.
[Collected by an Nasaa-ee and declared authentic by ibn Hibbaan and al Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami’ as Sagheer #6464]

4) On the authority of an Nu’maan ibn Basheer, the Prophet –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Indeed Allaah had written a book before He created the heavens and earth by two thousand years. He revealed two verses from it that with which He concluded Suratul Baqarah. Shaytaan will not draw close to a house in which they are read for three nights.

[Collected by at Tirmidhee and authenticated by al Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami’ as Sagheer # 1799]

5) On the Authority of ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir:

Read these last two Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah, for indeed my Lord has given them to me from underneath the Throne.”
[Collected by al Imaam Ahmad and at Tabaraanee. Declared authentic by al Albaanee in Saheeh al Jaami’ #1172]

6) On the authority of Abu Umaamah al Baahilee:

Allaah’s greatest name – with which if He were called by, He would respond – is in three Ayaat in al Baqarah, Aal ‘Imraan and Taha.
[Declared authentic by al Albaanee: Refer to Saheeh al Jaami’ #979, al Jaami’ as Sahgeer: 1/99]
