Learning From the History

The journey of history of Tawheed religion since Abraham as until the last prophet Mohammed saw had been passed thorugh many oppositions and fraud which had been done by its adherents. Starting from Jews people who had diverted the teachings of Moses as and his predecors prophets, until the christian people who diverted the real teachings of Jesus as. They had changed and added the contents of the Holy Bible for their own purpose, so it may appear as the words from Allah swt but in fact it is not.

فَوَيْلٌ لِلَّذِينَ يَكْتُبُونَ الْكِتَابَ بِأَيْدِيهِمْ ثُمَّ يَقُولُونَ هَٰذَا مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ لِيَشْتَرُوا بِهِ ثَمَنًا قَلِيلًا ۖ
فَوَيْلٌ لَهُمْ مِمَّا كَتَبَتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَوَيْلٌ لَهُمْ مِمَّا يَكْسِبُونَ

“So woe to those who write the "scripture" with their own hands, then say, "This is from Allah," in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.” (QS 2:79)

In its history, the Holy Bible had been collected and written at 50 until 100 years after Jesus as by several people (Markus, Matius, Lukas and Yohanes) and then it was verified by the church as part of the New Testament. In the process of collecting and writing the Bible, there had been changes and additional words happened from the original Bible, as stated by the Qoran above.

Learning from such mistake in history, then the prophet Mohammed saw forbid his disciples to write down his own words and deeds, except the verses of the Qoran only.

Then, after 300 years after the prophet Mohammed passed away, several Islamic scholars were collecting and writing down the hadiths of the prophet. In the process of collecting and writing down the hadith then we found that there were any attempts to add or change the words of hadith. So, then finally we found there were hundred of thousands fake hadith and weak hadith (dhaif), and even there were several hadith which were against the Qoran.

The following example are the sample of fake hadiths which spread largely in the moslem community and we thought them as the real hadith which came from Rasulullah saw, in fact they are not.

“Doing good for your world as you will live forever and doing good for your afterlife as you will die tomorrow.” This is not a statement of Rasulullah saw, because inside there is inqitho’ (breaking in narrator chains) between the narrators and the disciples with Abdullah ibn Amer.

“Disputes among my people is a Grace.” This hadith does not have origin. The experts of hadith have been trying to find out the narrator chains, but they failed to find it.

“If a servant just finish in reading the Qoran, then there will be 60,000 angels giving sholawah to him when he finish reading it.” This is a fake hadith because the there was one of the narrator named Al-Hasan ibn Ali ibn Zakariyya and Abdullah ibn Sam’an, both of them are lier and oftenly making fake hadiths.

“Something which is hated by Allah – Azza wa Jalla – is talaq.” This hadith was categorized as mudhtarib hadith (unbelieveable) of the narrator chains.

Rasulullah saw stated: “Whoever doing pilgrimage to the Baitullah but not visiting my cemetary then he has been gone away from me.” According to Albani this hadith is maudhu’.

“Sleeping of the one who is fasting is a kind of worshiping, Keeping silent is tasbeeh, his praying will be granted, and his deed will be multiplied.” This hadith is dhaif, as stated by Al Hafidz Al Iraqi in the Tkahrijul Ihya (1/30). Albani also put it as dhaif in his book of Silsilah Adh Dha’ifah (4696).

Then, learning from the mistake in history of writing down the Bible before, then the same story could also happened in the process of writing down the Hadith books. Being written in tens and hundreds years of after the prophet passed away, being written by human who does not have clear mechanism of validating the contents, and already found there were attempts of adding fake words and diverting the words, so then it would have possibility that what happened on the Bible could also happened with the Hadith books.

History will repeatedly happened, and once again it was proved that satan had use similar strategy in changing and adding with the fake words onto the Bible and Hadith books. Nothing is really new at all, this is the same old story being repeated.

It has been the responsibility for the ulema nowadays to filter out and selecting which statements and words which were truely and originally from Rasulullah saw. Do not make the same mistake as had been done by the scriptures and the scholars of Jews and Christian people. (AK/ST)
