Hadith: Things You Should Know – 5

بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم


Since a couple of days I was thinking about what should be added to the “Ulum-ul-Hadith” project, which should be informative as well as beneficial for the knowledge of the student.

So I came across some Ahadeeth, rather narrations, which are fabricated and Da’eef (weak) in nature but prevailing in the surroundings, and we simply adopt them because of our lack of knowledge and sometimes, lack of interest. (Sorry about this). It is important to note that there are numerous unfounded narrations that are declared Da’eef, Munkar, Baatil, Mawdoo or Baseless Riwayaat (narrations). They are popular and are commonly circulated among all levels of society – the elite as well as the commoners.  Thus, it is our obligation to discuss them and indicate their erroneous-ness.

So Inshaa’Allaah I’ll share some of the Da’eef and Fabricated Riwayaat (narrations) with you (Students of Knowledge).

May Allaah (SWT) increases and strengthen our Emaan.

Fabricated Narration No. 1:

He  said, “Allaah says, ‘I was a hidden treasure, and I wished to be known, so I created a creation (mankind), then made Myself known to them, and they recognized Me.’”

As-Sakhaawee (d.902, the student of ibn Hajr al-Asqalaanee) said, “ibn Taymiyyah said, ‘this is not from the words of the Prophet (SAW), and there is no known isnaad for it be it saheeh or da’eef.’ And az-Zarkashee and our Shaykh (ibn Hajr) followed him (in this verdict).” [‘al-Maqaasid al-Hasanah’ of as-Sakhaawee (no. 838)]

As-Suyootee (d.911) said, “this has no basis (laa asla lahu)” [‘Durural Muntathira’ of As-Suyutee (no.330)]

Al-Ijloonee (d.1162) said, “this saying occurs often in the words of the Sufis, who have relied on it, and built some of their principles on it.” [‘Kashf al-Khafaa’ of al-Ijloonee (no.2016)]

Al-Albaanee (contemporary) says, “this Ahaadeeth has no basis” [‘Silsilah ad-Da’eefah’ (1/166)]


About Ammatulla'ah

إِنَّ صَلَاتِى وَنُسُكِى وَمَحۡيَاىَ وَمَمَاتِى لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلۡعَـٰلَمِينَ Surely my prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are for Allaah, The Lord of the worlds. Al-Qura'an O'Allaah, Make Your love the most beloved thing to me of all loves, and make my fear of You be the most fearful thing to me of all fears. Free me of the necessities of this world by [granting] me a desire to meet You. When the eyes of the people of the world are cooled by their worldly belongings, let my eyes be cooled by Your worship.. Allaah'huma Aameen.
