In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most MercifulBlindly Accepting all Hadeeths:
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre
is no doubt of the existence of Sahee Hadeeths. The proofs are not one
BUT many, like Sahee Bukharee, Sahee Muslim, etc., which contain
several thousand Sahee Hadeeths. BUT Do not Blindly Accept all Hadeeths
as Sahee, which may put you in the category of Liar to Quraan, since
there is no doubt that there are few Hadeeths, which REALLY contradict
the Quraan. Be careful.Blindly Rejecting all Hadeeths:Do not Blindly Reject all Hadeeths, because of the following Hadeeths.
Ash Shabi, Abu Juhaifa said, "I asked Ali, 'Have you got ANY book
(which has been revealed to the Prophet apart from the Quraan)? Ali
replied, NO, except Allah's Book or the power of understanding which
has been bestowed (by Allah) upon a Muslim or what is (written) in this
sheet of paper (with me).' " Abu Juhaifa said, "I asked, 'What is
(written) in this sheet of paper?' Ali replied, 'It deals with the
Diyya (compensation (blood money) paid by the killer to the relatives
of the victim), the ransom for the releasing of the captives from the
hands of the enemies, and the law that no Muslim should be killed in
Qisas (equality in punishment) for the killing of (a disbeliever)' ",

and also you will be in problem like, how to offer the Salaat and how
to perform the Hajj, etc.Unity of Arabic Scholars in Toronto, Canada 25-JUN-2006:Scholars started uniting in Toronto
Their backgrounds are from the Middle East and their mother tongues are
Arabic. These Scholars include Sheikh Shabbir Ally, Sheikh Hamid Salimi
and Sheikh Ahmed Shehab, who are also known by the media as well. Remember:
Sheikh Shabbir Ally is a very prominent scholar and has over hundreds
of international lectures and publication. He is president and Imaam of
Islamic Dawah Center in Toronto, Canada. http://www.islaminfo.comhttp://www.quranspeaks.comThere are some issues with the followings as per above mentioned scholars :::>>> 1>
Book of Hadeeth.2>
Because when these books were written, there were chances of human error as well.Things to do :::>>>1>
Take out everything from these three books.2> Re-write / re-phrase
these three books in the light of the Quraan.3>
Keep updating these books according to the time, since these books were
never updated and got frozen for the last 1100
years.This CLEARLY Verifies the following Hadeeth regarding :::>>>Be in the MIDDLE and Categorize the Hadeeth:
Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) already warned about coming of Hadeeths after
him and set the CRITERIA on how to verify them, which allows us to live
in the MIDDLE without extremism.
Ali (RA) narrated, Prophet
Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, there is NO DOUBT that, there will
be Hadeeths coming after me, claiming that I have said those. So you
MUST test each and every Hadeeth from the QURAAN. If it is really
according to the QURAAN only then accept it otherwise reject it, (Sanan
Dar Qatni, Vol-2, Book – Imrani Abee Musa, Matba Farooqi – 513).
WHY don't you Reject all those Hadeeths which REALLY contradict the
Quraan and its Basic Principles, since Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him)
already told to do so, are you rejecting Rasool Allah
(Peace-Be-Upon-Him) this Authentic Hadeeth by accepting all Hadeeths
BLINDLY, which Contradicts the Quraan.
Please read my article on “How to Understand Quraan
is NO Guarantee that if the Authentic Chain of narrations are correct,
then the Hadeeth is Authentic, even if it Contradicts the Basic
Principles of the Quraan. By giving preference to the Hadeeth over the
Quraan may put you in the category of Liar to the Quraan, which is an
Extremely Dangerous Shirk. Be Care Full.Believing on Scholars (Ulemaa), that they cannot be wrong may put you in the category of SHIRK:
Thanks to our Scholars (Ulemaa), who worked extremely hard to keep
Islaam ALIVE and to keep us Muslims by providing Beautiful knowledge of
Islaam. BUT Scholars are NOT Allah and they might do mistake.
have taken as lords beside Allah their rabbis (Priests) and their monks
and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship only One
God. There is no god save Him. Be He glorified from all that they
ascribe as partner (unto Him), (Al_Quraan_009.031).Salaat (Prayers) is according to the Quraan: Wisdom behind the Salaat:
look at the non-Muslims society, they are losing family lives. Also
they are losing community help, helping neighbors and relatives. Islaam
is the only religion which unites people five times a day in Masjids.
Neighbors come closely to each other through this Prayer (Salaat)
system. Although the basic purpose of the Prayers (Salaat) is not to
provide an exercise for people yet it is being increasingly recognized
that it has plenty of medical advantages for the human body. With the
Prayers (Salaat), we don't give anything to Allah, instead it is to
help us. Allah has created us and Allah knows which is the best for us.
Actually the Prayer (Salaat) may be cure for many known and unknown
Also the Sajda (Prostration) in the Prayers (Salaat)
is a unique position as this is the only position in which the brain
(or head) becomes lower than the heart (PUMP) and hence for the first
time the blood gushes towards the brain with FULL force whereas in all
the other positions (even when lying) the brain is above the heart when
it has to work against the gravity to send the blood to the brain. In
the position of the Sajda (Prostration) in the Prayers (Salaat), due to
the increase in the blood supply the brain receives more nourishment
and it has a good effect upon memory, vision, hearing, concentration,
psyche and all other cognitive abilities.
Few Blindly Rejecter
of Hadeeth people believe that the Salaat (Prayer) is not according to
the Quraan. Remember, If you don't understand few Ayaat of the Quraan,
it does not mean that it is not in the Quraan. Let us analyze it in
People in the Hell will accept that one of the reason for going into the Hell will be not Prayed.
They will answer: We were not of those who prayed (Salaat), (Al_Quraan_074:043).Following
Ayaat points towards Stand, Praise, Recite for the Quraan, Bow Down,
Prostrating, Dress and Humble etc. in Salaat (Prayers):Also these Ayaat points towards the five time Salaat! Fajir, Duhr, Asr, Maghrib, Ishaa and Tahajjud (extra prayer):
I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me, (Al_Quraan_051:056).
be steadfast in prayer; practice regular charity; and bow down your
heads (Rukoo) with those who bow down (in worship), (Al_Quraan_002:043).
is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards the East and the
West (Towards Kabaa during Salaat and Hajj etc.), but righteousness is
this that one should believe in Allah and the last day and the angels
and the Book and the prophets, and give away wealth out of love for Him
to the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and
the beggars and for (the emancipation of) the captives, and keep up
prayer and pay the poor-rate; and the performers of their promise when
they make a promise, and the patient in distress and affliction and in
time of conflicts-- these are they who are true (to themselves) and
these are they who guard (against evil), (Al_Quraan_002:177).
strictly your (habit of) prayers (Five Time Prayers), especially the
Middle Prayer (Duhr and Asr Salaat); and stand before Allah in a devout
(frame of mind), (Al_Quraan_002:238).
If you FEAR (under unusual
circumstances), you may pray (Salaat) while walking or riding (for
travelers). Once you are safe, you shall commemorate GOD as He taught
you what you never knew, (Al_Quraan_002:039).
O you who believe!
do not go near prayer when you are Intoxicated until you know (well)
what you say, nor when you are under an obligation to perform a bath--
unless (you are) travelling on the road-- until you have washed
yourselves; and if you are sick, or on a journey, or one of you come
from the privy or you have touched the women, and you cannot find
water, betake yourselves to pure earth, then wipe your faces and your
hands; surely Allah is Pardoning, Forgiving, (Al_Quraan_004:043).
you travel through the earth (during the war), there is no blame on you
if you shorten your prayers, for fear the Unbelievers May attack you:
For the Unbelievers are unto you open enemies, (Al_Quraan_004:101).
when you are among them and keep up the prayer for them (during the
war), let a party of them stand up with you, and let them take their
arms; then when they have prostrated themselves let them go to your
rear, and let another party who have not prayed come forward and pray
with you, and let them take their precautions and their arms; (for)
those who disbelieve desire that you may be careless of your arms and
your luggage, so that they may then turn upon you with a sudden united
attack, and there is no blame on you, if you are annoyed with rain or
if you are sick, that you lay down your arms, and take your
precautions; surely Allah has prepared a disgraceful chastisement for
the unbelievers, (Al_Quraan_004_102).
The hypocrites think that
they are deceiving GOD, but He is the One who leads them on. When they
get up for the Contact Prayer (Salaat), they get up lazily. That is
because they only show off in front of the people, and rarely do they
think of GOD. sends astray, you will never find a way to guide him,
(Al_Quraan_004:142-143). Think what about those who don't offer regular
The hypocrites will be committed to the lowest pit of Hell, and you will find no one to help them, (Al_Quraan_004:145).
children of Adam, you shall be clean and dress nicely when you go to
the Masjid. And eat and drink moderately; Surely, He does not love the
The only people to frequent
Allah's Masjids are those who believe in GOD and the Last Day, and
observe the Contact Prayers (Salaat), and give the obligatory charity
(Zakaat), and do not fear except Allah. These will surely be among the
guided ones, (Al_Quraan_009:018).
You shall not observe the
funeral prayer for any of them (hypocrites) when he dies, nor shall you
stand at his grave. They have disbelieved in GOD and His messenger, and
died in a state of wickedness, (Al_Quraan_009:084).
establish regular prayers at the two ends of the day (Fajir, Asr and
Maghrib) and at the approaches of the night (Ishaa): For those things,
that are good remove those that are evil: Be that the word of
remembrance to those who remember (their Lord), (Al_Quraan_011:114).
certainly We have given you seven of the oft-repeated (all the verses
of Al_Fatiha) and the great Quraan, (Al_Quraan_015:087). Al_Fatiha must be recited in every rakaat of each Salaat as well as every time before you start reading the Quraan
worship at the going down of the sun (Maghrib) until the dark of night
(Ishaa), and (the recital of) the Quraan at dawn (Fajir). Lo! (the
recital of) the Quraan at dawn is ever witnessed. And some part of the
night (Tahajjud) awake for it, a largess for thee. It may be that thy
Lord will raise thee to a praised estate, (Al_Quraan_017:078-079).
"Call Him GOD, or call Him the Most Gracious; whichever name you use,
to Him belongs the best names." You shall not utter your Prayers
(Salaat) too loudly, nor secretly; use a moderate tone,
Therefore, be patient in the face of their
utterances, and praise and glorify your Lord before sunrise (Fajir) and
before sunset (Asr). And during the night (Maghrib and Ishaa) glorify
Him, as well as at both ends of the day (Fajir, Asr and Maghrib), that
you may be happy, (Al_Quraan_020:130).
O you who believe! Bow
down and prostrate yourselves, and worship your Lord, and do good, that
haply you may prosper, (Al_Quraan_022:077).
Successful indeed are the believers, who are humble in their prayers, (Al_Quraan_023:001-002).
And who spend the night before their Lord, prostrate and standing, (Al_Quraan_025:064).
you shall glorify GOD when you retire at night (Ishaa), and when you
rise in the morning (Fajir). All praise is due to Him in the heavens
and the earth, throughout the evening, as well as in the middle of your
day (Dhur and Asr), (Al_Quraan_030:017-018).
Bear, then, with
patience, all that they say, and celebrate the praises of thy Lord,
before the rising of the sun (Fajir) and before (its) setting (Asr).
And during part of the night (Maghrib and Ishaa), (also,) celebrate His
praises, and (so likewise) after the postures of adoration,
O you who believe! When the call is
proclaimed to prayer on Friday (the Day of Assembly), hasten earnestly
to the Remembrance of Allah, and leave off business (and traffic): That
is best for you if you but knew! And when the Prayer is finished, then
may you disperse through the land, and seek of the Bounty of Allah: and
celebrate the Praises of Allah often (and without stint): that you may
Or a little more; and recite the Quraan in slow, measured rhythmic tones, (Al_Quraan_073:004).
woe to the worshippers, Who are neglectful of their prayers, Those who
(want but) to be seen (of men), But refuse (to supply) (even)
neighbourly needs, (Al_Quraan_107:004-107).
So the Salaat we
offer is really according to the Quraan. In Salaat, we Stand, Praise,
Recite for the Quraan, Bow Down, Prostrating, Dress and Humble etc. in
Salaat (Prayers).Wisdom behind Taraveeh Prayer (Salaat) During Ramadaan:
To understand the Wisdom of Taraveeh Prayer (Salaat) during Ramadaan, we need to understand the Wisdom of Teaching the Quraan.
رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا
O my Lord ! increase me in knowledge, (Al_Quraan_020.114).
Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, the BEST among you are those who
learns and teaches QURAAN, (Bukhari_Vol_6_Book_61_Hadeeth_ 545).Reciting Quraan in a Group: One person should read and rest must listen to him:
the Quraan is read (in a group, Taraveeh is also included), listen to
it with attention, and hold your peace: that you may receive mercy
(otherwise may be not). (Al_Quraan_007.204)
(To get real Mercy
of Allah, you must have to listen carefully when the Quraan is read in
a Group otherwise you may not get the real MERCY from Allah. Reciting
Quraan should never be like everybody is reading independently and no
body are listening to one person, like in Quraan Khanee.)Taraveeh is also a kind of Dawah: Increase Dawah during the Month of Ramadaan:
are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining (order) what is
right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the
People of the Book had faith, it was best for them: among them are some
who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors,
You shall invite to the path of your Lord
with wisdom and kind enlightenment, and debate with them in the best
possible manner. Your Lord knows best who has strayed from His path,
and He knows best who are the guided ones, (Al_Quraan_016:125).
the past when it was hard to get education and books were not widely
available, so many people were uneducated, and many of them don't
remember the complete Quraan. Again then Taraveeh Prayer (Salaat) was
the best way to educate them.
In Pakistan in the year 2004
, around 80%
people don't know how to read and write their name. Taraveh Prayer
(Salaat) is also the best way to make those people listen the Quraan in
a gathering during Ramadaan.Taraveeh is also a Tahajjud (additional) Prayer during a part of night:
during a part of the night, pray Tahajjud (an additional prayer) beyond
what is incumbent on you; maybe your Lord will raise you to a position
of great glory, (Al_Quraan_017:079).
In brief the Taraveeh
Prayer (Salaat) is one of the best way to listen the Quraan in a group,
to do Dawah and to get the most benefit during the Blessed month of
Ramadaan. Also it is a Tahajjud (additional) Prayer.Milaad: Another Method of Dawah in the South Asian Countries:
the Modern Age we have several facilities to do Dawah, e.g. Internet,
Television, Radio, CDs/DVDs, Audio and Video Cassettes, etc. and of
course Masjid. In the old ages, when people didn’t have good methods of
communications. Our Great Ulemaa (Scholars) and our Grand Parents in
the South Asian Region kept Islaam alive by celebrating Milaad (another
form of Dawah). So Great Thanks to our Ulemaa (Scholars) and our Grand
Parents. BUT we should not believe that Rasool Allah
(Peace-Be-Upon-Him) or that his soul comes during the Milaad, this is
SHIRK, so Be careful. Do NOT celebrate Milaad for celebrating birthdays
or other BIDDAY or Eid-Milaad-un-Nabi etc. Also Our Ulemaa (Scholars)
should not go to earn money from this Milaad or Dawah, by charging to
give lectures, BUT people must help those scholars, if they need some
help, otherwise our Great Ulemaa (Scholars) may not survive to spend
their expensive time to learn and spread Deen. They need help as a
Scholarship for their personal need.
Scholars had done the Best BUT they are NOT Allah and may do Mistakes.
Great Thanks to Great Scholars, who saved the Ummah and kept the Islaam Alive.
have taken as lords beside Allah their rabbis (scholars) and their
monks and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship
only One God. There is no god save Him. Be He glorified from all that
they ascribe as partner (unto Him), (Al_Quraan_009.031). Salwaat O Salaam (Sending Blessing) to Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him):
is an order of Allah to send Blessings on Rasool Allah
(Peace-Be-Upon-Him). Even Allah as well as Angles send Blessings on
Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him). The best way to send Blessing on
Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) is to recite Darood-e-Ibraheem, which
we recite in every Salaat. Additionally, in every Salaat at the end of
second and at the last Rakaat in the Joulus (sitting) after Sujud
before reciting Darood, we recite Tashahud which is “ATTAHIATU LILAHI
Allah and His Angles send Blessing on the Prophet: O
you who Believe send you Blessings on him, and salute him with all
Nowadays people are doing
FUND RAISING DINNER to support their Islaamic Program on the TV, Radio
and on the Internet etc. Don’t ever think that these are BIDDAH. We are
supposed to help each other for the Good. To support all Islaamic
Programs is a Good Deed (GOOD BIDDAH). This is also a Great Jihaad to
do the Best Dawah.
