of the readers may be shocked to discover on the title cover of this book,
the brief headings of the often quoted popular narrations. Many of which
are propagated with deep conviction and sectarian pride. The author claims
that these widespread narrations are falsely attributed to the Prophet.
When a laity casts doubt as to the authenticity of a Hadith, that doubter
is asked by his/her elders to stop treading the perilous path and consult
an `Alim. Here an `Alim is warning the believers of serious consequences
(such as hell fire) for knowingly propagating lies (fabricated narrations),
in the name of the Prophet. Many of the Hadiths listed below are the ones
that we often hear from the Imams and the members of the traveling Jamaats.
I would humbly request the readers to make a copy of the list and give
it to your Imams and the Preachers along with a copy of the back page.
Let them read and decide.
Our duty is to convey the message. The author
writes "Fabricated ahadith stunt the spiritual
growth of the Muslim Ummah." May be, this
is one of the reasons that the Prophet (s.a.s) had ordered his companions
NOT to write his narrations (except the revealed verses) and to ERASE whatever
they had written. I have not come across any narration wherein the Prophet
had withdrawn his earlier strict order. The argument that the said BAN
was provisional, transitory or short termed to protect the error of the
mixing of the verses of the Qur'an with the Prophetic Sayings, is but a
"straw man" created to justify the writings and compilations. If that was
not the case then Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim would have quoted several
narrations that they had physically copied from the earlier written
manuscripts. The total absence of this, upholds the fact that the strict
BAN for the writing of the Prophetic Sayings was very religiously, rigorously
and strictly observed by the first four or five generations of the believers,
even after the Revealed Verses of the Qur'an had been duly compiled by
the third Khaipha Uthman (r.a.), in 651 C.E. Jazak Allah Khair.

Your message will not carry any weight unless
you know the basis of rejection.
MY THANKS ARE DUE TO THE AUTHOR AND THE PUBLISHERS
To acquaint the readers of my personal point of view on this critical subject
I reproduce below the last paragraph from chapter number twelve of my book
and Realities of Hadith - a critical study:
pride in being a lucid, rational and above all easy to understand faith.
Consequently, attempts by the traditionalist or Ulemas to either suppress
or criticize thinking Muslims who have reservations about these dubious
narratives so closely related to the Prophet’s life run contrary to our
tradition. It would be a judicious decision
to face the uncertainties and doubts as they were faced in the third and
fifth centuries Hijri and re-examine the unreliable narrations. These should
be weeded out and no longer promoted as authentic reports. The dialogue
has already begun – in cyberspace."

the Ummah to His Deen
