Anas Ibn Malik (radyAllahu`anhu) said, “Everyday the earth calls out with nine things, saying,

‘O son of Adam! You strive on my surface and your destination is my stomach;

you disobey [Allah] on my surface and you will be punished for it in my stomach;

you laugh on my surface and you will cry in my stomach;

you are happy on my surface and you will be sad in my stomach;

you gather wealth on my surface and you will regret gathering it in my stomach;

you are arrogant on my surface and you will be humiliated in my stomach;

you walk insolently on my surface and you will fall miserably into my stomach;

you walk in the light on my surface and you will be in the darkness in my stomach;

and you walk with crowds and large gatherings on my surface and you will be lonely in my stomach.”

Fabricated narration in Kitab at-Tawhid- Explanation by Shaikh Saalih al Uthaymeen

August 3, 2013 Leave a comment


Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) commented upon verse of Qur’an ‘But when He gave them a Salih (good in every aspect) child, they ascribed partners to Him’: ” When Adam had sexual relation with Eve, she became pregnant. At that time Iblis (Satan) came to them and said “I am the one who caused your expulsion from Paradise. Obey me, otherwise I shall cause your child to grow two horns like a deer by which he will puncture your belly when he comes out! I will do it! I will do it!” Satan thus frightened them (Adam and Eve) and said to name the boy “Abdul-Harith;’ (slave of the earth cultivator). They (Adam and Eve) did not obey him (Satan) and a dead child was born to them. When Eve became pregnant a second time, Satan again approached them and repeated the same demand but again they did not obey. And the second child was still born dead. She [Eve] became pregnant a third time, Satan again came to them and put the same demand mentioning what had happened before. Adam and Eve were overcome by love for the child and named the boy “Abdul-Harith (slave of the earth cultivator)”. And this is what Allah said (in the verse): “They made partners with Him for what they were given”.

[Reported by Ibn Abi Hatim]


Shaikh Ibn Uthaymeen [rahimahullah] said: And this story is false from number of angles:

1] That there is no authentic narration concerning that from Prophet Muhammed [sallallahu alaihi wasallam] – and it is from the kind of information that cannot be obtained except by revelation and Ibn Hazm said concerning this story, “Indeed it is a report that is superstitious lie.”



2] If this story was concerning Adam and Eve, then they either made repentance from the Shirk or died upon it, so whoever makes it permissible to hold that a single one of the Prophets died upon shirk than that is something severely wrong. And if they repented from Shirk, then it does not befit the wisdom, justice and mercy of Allah, that He mentions their mistakes and not their repentance from it. When Allah, the Most High, mentions the mistakes of some of the Prophets and Messengers, He mentions their repentance from it, as in the story of Adam and his wife, when he ate from the tree and they repented from it.



3] That the Prophets are protected from shirk by the agreement of Scholars.



4] That it is confirmed in the hadith of intercession, that the people will come to Adam and seek intercession from him, then he will excuse himself, due to eating from the tree and that is a sin, and if shirk had occurred from him, it would have been stronger excuse.



5] That in this story it is mentioned that Shaytan came to them and said: ‘I am your companion who got you out of paradise’, so if he said that, they would have known with certainty that he was an enemy to them and would not accept anything from him.



6] That in this story is his saying: ‘I will cause it to have horns that will puncture her belly….’, if he believed that it is possible he could actually do that, then this is shirk in Lordship because none but Allah is able to do that. And if he didn’t believe it was possible, then it is not possible to accept his saying.



7] The saying of Allah, the Most High: ‘Exalted be Allah above what they associate with Him’ [7:190] The pronoun is plural and if it was concerning Adam and Eve, it would have been in the dual form… But what is correct is that Al-Hasan [rahimahullah] said: ‘Indeed those intended in this verse are not Adam and Eve’, and what is meant is the polytheists from the children of Adam (descendants), as was mentioned by Ibn Kathir in his tafisr.

From the chapter on ‘Death’: Tanbih Al-Ghafileen

June 24, 2013 Leave a comment


It was said:

“Death is like a thorny plant entered into the throat of the Son of Adam – each thorn pulling with it one of his veins – which is then pulled out suddenly by a man of great strength, cutting up what it cuts up, and sparing what it spares.”


It was also said:

“There are four things that none know the value of except for four types of people:

nobody knows the value of the youth except the elderly,


nobody knows the value of relief except those who are being tried,


nobody knows the value of health except the sick,


and nobody knows the value of life except the dead.”



A man would say to his son: “I am amazed at the one upon whom death descends while he has his sanity and his tongue, yet he is still unable to  describe death.” So, when this man had death descend upon him, his son asked him why he did not describe death for him even though he had his sanity andhis tongue. The man answered:

“O son! Verily, death is greater than could be described, but I will attempt to describe it for you somewhat.

By Allah, it is as if I have a mountain upon my shoulders,


and it is as if my soul is being extracted from the tip of a needle, 


and it is as if I have a thorny plant in my throat,


and it is as if the heavens have smashed into the earth and I am in between them”.



It was reportedly said to ‘Isa the son of Maryam, by some of the disbelievers of his time: “Verily, you bring the dead back to life, but you only do so to those living in our times. How do we know that these people really died in the first place? Revive for us someone who has died in the past.” So, ‘Isa said to them: “Choose whomever you wish.” So, they said: “Revive for us  Sam the son of Nuh.” So,’Isa went to his grave, prayed two rak’ahs, made supplication to Allah, and then Allah brought Sam the son of Nuh back to life. The people noticed that Sam’s hair and beard were white, and asked himhow long he had been dead. He replied:

“I have been dead for four thousand years, and I am still suffering from the stupors of death.”



Know that you were created to die, and there is no way around this, as Allah says: {“…you will die and they will die…”} [az-Zumar; 30],


and He says: {“Say: running away will not save you if you attempt to escape from death or killing.”} [al-Ahzab; 16]

Sermon of Uthman bin Affan(RadiAllahu anhu)

November 18, 2012 Leave a comment

♣Bismillah Ar Rahmaan Ar Raheem♣


It is narrated that ‘Uthman bin Affan – Allâh be pleased with him – said in a sermon:

Son of Adam! Know that the angel of death who has been assigned to you has not ceased to pass you and move on to others, ever since you have been in this world. But it is as if he is about to pass someone else and move on to target you, so be careful and prepare for him (by correcting your deeds). And do not forget him, for he does not forget you. And know o son of Adam, if you are heedless about yourself and do not prepare, no one else will prepare for you. You must meet Allah the Mighty and Majestic, so take for yourself and do not leave it to someone else. Peace be on you.

Abû Bakr Al-Daynûrî, Al-Mujâlasah wa Jawâhir Al-Ílm 2: 73, 74.

After Adam committed the sin====weak and fabricated hadith.

September 14, 2011 Leave a comment


On the authority of Umar bin Al-Khattab (radiallahu anhu) that the Prophet said: When Adam committed the sin he raised his head to the Throne and said, I ask You through the right of Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) for your forgiveness. Allah asked Adam, How do you know Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) when I have not created him. He (Adam) said: O’ Allah! After you created me and breathed into me your soul I raised my head and saw written on the Throne ” There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah “. I then came to know that you would not put anyone’s name next to Yours except the one who is most dear to you in your creation. Allah said: You have said the truth O Adam! Indeed he is most dear to me among the creation. Invoke me through his right. Indeed I have forgiven you. And if there was no Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), I would not have created you”

[Ref: Mustadrak Al-Hakim Vol 2 Hadith 4228 and Baihaqi in Dalail Al-Nabuwwah Vol.5, Page 489]



Observation of the Chain of Narrators:

This narration is weak because of two narrators. They are Abdul Rahman bin Zaid bin Aslam who is weak as is evident in the books of rijaal and Abdullah bin Muslim Fihri who is Majhool i.e. not enough data is available to know who he is. See Lisan ul Meezan and Meezan ul Aitidal for details.


The narrator before Fihri is Abdullah bin Muslim bin Rushaid. Ibn Hibban mentioned that he was accused of fabricating ahadith. He used to fabricate ahadith upon Lais, Malik and Ibn Lhiya. His ahadith should not be written. Ibn Hajar in Lisan ul Meezan (Page 360 Vol.3) hinted that Abdullah bin Muslim bin Rushaid and Abdullah bin Muslim Al-Fihri, might be the same person.


Regarding Abdul Rahman bin Zaid, Ibn Hibban said that he brought about changes in ahadith without having enough knowledge about them. So much so that Mursal ahadith narrated by him have been made Marfoo and Mauqoof ahadith to Musnad. For this reason it was thought that he should be left out.


Imam Zahbi declared this hadith “Batil” (False). See Talkhees Al-Mustadrak and Meezan ul Aitidal.


Hafiz Ibn Hajar declared it false in Lisan ul Meezan.


Imam Bayhaqi mentioned this in Dalail Al-Nabuwwah and he said Abdul Rahman bin Zaid is weak, Ibne-e-Kathir in Tareekh Al-Bidaya wa Al-Nihaya acknowledged it.


Sheikhul Islam Ibn Taimiyyah says in “Qaidah Al-Jaleelah fi Al-Tawassal Wal-Wasila”: Narrating of this hadith by Imam Hakim is such an act that has been disapproved of. According to Ibn Taimiyyah, Muhadditheen agree upon the weakness of Abdul Rahman bin Zaid. Ibn Jauzi also has the same opinion.


Imam Hakim says in Al-Madkhal Ila Ma’rifah Al-Saheeh min Al-Saqeem that Abdul Rahman bin Zaid bin Aslam narrated “Maudoo” fabricated ahadith from his father. Abu Naeem said the same thing.

According to Ali bin Madeeni and Ibn Saad Abdul Rahman bin Zaid is extremely weak.


According to Imam Tahawi Abdul Rahman’s ahadith are considered weak among the muhadditheen.


Allama Haithmi also held it weak. See Majma al-Zawaid



The hadith is narrated on the authority of Umar bin Khattab (radiallahu anhu). Had it been authentic, Umar (radiallahu anhu) would never have turned away from this methodology of supplicating with wasila in relation to rank or status of a dead person. But the correct hadith in Bukhari clearly shows that after the death of the Prophet, Umar bin Khattab went to his Uncle Abbas (radiallahu anhu) in need of invocation for rain. If he actually narrated the above mentioned hadith then why did he not intimate wasila of the Prophet after his death and on the contrary went to his uncle for his prayers and supplication?


Quran itself describes the method by which Adam (alayihs salam) repented, Allah said:

Then learnt Adam from his Lord words of inspiration, and His Lord turned towards him; for He is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful [Al-Quran 2:37]

The words are mentioned in Quran in Surah Al-A’raf. They said:

Our Lord! we have wronged our own souls. If You will not forgive us and bestow upon us Your Mercy, we shall certainly be lost [Al-Quran 7:23]
