FABRICATED HADITH – 1
“He who knows himself knows his Lord”
Mentioned in Al Maqaasid by As Sakhawi.
Classified fabricated by As-Suyuti and Imam Nawawi. The scholars of Hadith said this khabar is not a hadith but instead it’s an Israelia i.e. the Jewish sayings.
This hadith is extremely dangerous as it’s in conflict with the Islamic Aqeedah. It gives the false notion that man can be compared to Allah. The ninety-nine names and attributes of Allah should not be understood in human form. This is called Tashbih i.e. to liken the creator to His creation. Anyone who makes Allah and similar to His creation in His person or His names and attributes is a Kafir.
Hence Allah sees, speaks and hears but not like us. We see as the creation and Allah sees as the Creator. Our ability to see is limited while Allah’s ability to see is unlimited. We believe in Allah’s names and attributes without making Him similar to His creation because Allah said:
“There is nothing in the heavens above nor the earth below which is like unto Him, and He is All-Hearer the All-Seer.” (Surah Ash-Shura, 42 : 11)
Likewise Allah said in this regard:
“Say He is Allah, the One Allah As Samad Le. the SelfSufficient Master, whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks. He begets not nor was He begotten, and there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.” (Surah Ikhlas)

“Necessity knows no law”
Classified fabricated by Adh-Dhahabi.
The scholars of Islam say this saying is not a hadith but instead it’s a saying of the Islamic jurist. Hence the meaning is authentic and it is permissible for the Muslims to act upon it. For example, Allah has given us the permission to eat pork if we are starving and there is nothing else by which we can eat to save ourselves. Thus He said,
“Allah has forbidden you only the “Maytata” (Le. Animals that die by themselves) and bloody and the flesh of swine, and that which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than Allah or has been slaughtered for idols etc, or which Allah’s name hasn’t been mentioned while slaughtering. But if one is forced by necessity without disobedience nor transgressing due limits, then there is no sin for him. Truly Allah is off Forgiving Most Merciful.” (Surah Baqara, 2 : 173}
Likewise we are allowed to renounce Islam when persecuted, the way Ammar Ibn Yasir (ra) renounced Islam with his tongue when the arch enemy of Islam Abu Jahl was persecuting him for taking his shahadah.
Even though apostasy is the worst crime under the heavens we are allowed to apostate with our tongues to save our lives as long as our hearts are firm with Iman (faith). In this regards Allah said:
“Whoever disbelieved in Allah after his belief, except him who is forced to do so while his heart is centred with Iman.” (Surah An-Nahl, 16 : 106)
The great commentator of the Holy Qur’an Ibn Abbas said this ayah was revealed when Ammar Ibn Yasir (ra) apostated with his tongue due to the severe persecution Quraish unleashed against him for the sake of his Deen Al- Islam. (See Tafseer Ibn Kafir Vol. 2, p. 609)
Likewise even though alcohol is haraam a person who is choking to death and didn’t find any liquid to drink except alcohol to save his life is allowed to so do so.
Thus the khabar is a fiqh ruling used by the Islamic jurist past and present therefore its meaning is authentic i.e. necessity knows no law.

“Conversation in the Mosque eats up good deeds as the way animals consume grass”
This was related by Al Hafidh Al-Iraqi who said it was a fabricated Hadith. Abdul Wahhab As-Subki in the book Tabaqat As-Shafi’ia (Vol.4, p. 145) said this Hadith is devoid of an Isnad i.e. an authentic chain of transmitters.
It is permissible for Muslims to converse in the mosque providing the conversation does not include backbiting, slandering, tale bearing, ridiculing, kufr, shirk and deviation from the Qur’an and Sunnah. While conversing the Muslims are not allowed to raise their voices because this behaviour is not befitting of a Muslim in the mosque. Moreover Allah has forbidden the raising of voices in the mosque in the Quran –
“O you who believe do no raise your voices above the voice of the Holy Prophet …. ” (Surah Al-Hujurat, 49 : 2)
It is also makruh (disliked) to speak unnecessarily after the Iqaamah is called. It is haraam to speak when the Athan is being called. Thus the Muslims are obliged to keep quiet and repeat the athan softly behind the Muathin. As for speaking in the mosque on Jumu’ah day while the Imam is delivering the khutba, this is totally haram. Hence the one who speaks has no Jumu’ah.
On the authority of Ibn Abbas (ra), the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) said, “Anyone who speaks on Jumu’ah day while the Imam is delivering the khutba, his similitude is like a donkey carrying books; and the one who says to him be quiet, is guilty of speaking during the sermon and thus he the speaker has no Jumu’ah.” (Musnad Ahmad – Vol.2, p.244)
Narrated Abu Huraira (ra), Allah’s Apostle (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) said, “When the Imam is delivering the khutba and you ask your companion to keep quiet and listen then no doubt you have done an evil act.” (Sahih Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol.2. p 27. hadith 56)
The sin of speaking during the sermon on Friday is so grave it renders your Jumu’ah null and void. Even to say to your brother keep quiet is impermissible.
It is also haram to speak when the Holy Qur’an is being recited Hence Allah said,
“Whenever the Qur’an is being recited listen attentively to it and keep quiet in order that you may obtain Allah’s mercy.” (Surah Al A’raaf, 7 : 204)

“I am a city of knowledge and Ali is the gate by which you pass to obtain that knowledge “
Related by Hakim 3/126 and classified fabricated by Imam Bukhari.
This fabricated Hadith is famous among the Shi’ites who exaggerate in their love for Ali ibn Abi Talib (ra). They concocted their man-made religion on the foundations of insulting the companions of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) especially Abu Bakr (ra) and Umar (ra).
The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) said: “Do not insult any of my Companions because if you should spend as much as Mount Uhud in gold it will never measure up to the sacrifice of the Companions not even half of it i.e. their sacrifice.” (Sahih Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol. 5, p. 17. No. 22)
The Shi’ites pronounce Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman (ra) as kafirs. They do not realise that when they insult these noble companions they are actually insulting the Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) because they were his closest companions. Hence to insult them means the Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) had kafirs for his (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) companions.
More dangerous than that, to insult the Companions is to insult Allah because this means Allah saw His Messenger (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) choosing hypocrites and kafirs for his companions and Allah didn’t send Angel Jibreel to correct him (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam)! So Allah let His Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) down!
Likewise when we assassinate the character of the Companions we cast doubts on Islam because they were the ones who taught us our Deen.
The reason the Shi’ites are so treacherous to Islam and Muslims is because this movement was started by a Jew of Yemeni origin called Abdullah Ibn Saba. Concerning the Jews Allah said:
“You shall find that those who hate you the Muslims most to be Jews and the polytheist .” (Surah Al-Maidah, 5 : 82)
Their (Shi’ite) claim to love Ali Ibn Abi Talib (ra) is false, if they had loved him they would have followed him. Ali (ra) gave his bay’ah (oath of allegiance) to all three Caliphs before him. He even married his beloved daughter Umm Kulthum (ra) to Umar (ra).
FABRICATED HADITH – 5
“The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) was once returning from a battle with his (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) companions and he (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) turned to them and said: “We have returned from the lesser Jihad to the greater Jihad, Jihad-u-Nafs Jihaad Akbar i.e. to fight against your evil desires is the greatest.”
Related by Bayhaqi and classified fabricated by Ibn Hajar who said this Khabar is not a saying of the Holy Prophet (Sallallhu A’laihi wa Sallam) but instead a saying of a man by the name of Ibrahim Ibn Abee Ablah.
This hadith is frequently quoted by cowards and hypocrites who don’t want to die for Allah. In this regards,
“Fighting is prescribed for you and you hate it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.’ (Surah Al Baqara, 2 : 216)
In regards to Jihad and its importance to Holy Prophet (Sallallhu A’laihi wa Sallam) said: “He who died and didn’t do Jihad and didn’t make his intention to do Jihad; died on a branch of hypocrisy.” (Sahih Muslim (English trans.) Vol. 3, p 1057, No. 4696)
The great scholar of Islam Ibnul-Qayyim said this fabricated Hadith is obnoxious.
FABRICATED HADITH – 6
“The heart of a believer is Allah’s dwelling place”
Classified fabricated by Az-Zarkashi and Ibn Taymiyya. This fabricated hadith has another wording, which goes as follows:
“Neither My earth nor My heavens are vast enough to contain Me but the heart of My believing servant does contain Me.”
Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taymiyya said this saying can be found among the Israelias and it’s definitely not a saying of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam).
This fabricated hadith is famous among Sufi circles. They are attracted to this fabricated hadith because they use it to promote their erroneous concept of incarnation.
Incarnation is kufr, because Allah does not dwell inside of His creation and He has never appeared on earth in the form of an Angel or any human being. Anyone who believes that Allah appeared on earth in the form of a human being is a Kafir.
This is the Aqeedah of Christians and Louis Farrakhan. Some Christians claim that Jesus was God in flesh. The Nation of Islam claim that Allah appeared in the person of Master Fard Muhammad. Anyone who dies with this belief that Allah appeared on earth in the form of a human being will be in the Hell-fire to abide forever.
In refuting this concept Allah said:
“It is not given to any human being that Allah should speak to him unless it be by revelation, or from behind a veil, or that He sends a Messenger (Angel) to reveal what he wills by His leave. Verily He is the Most High, the Most Wise. ” (Surah ash-Shura, 42 : 51)
Also we say to the Christians if Jesus was God in flesh why did he rebuke the man who said to him: “O good master,” by saying, “Why call me good, no one is good except God.” (See Matthew 19:17)

“There shall arise a man from among my followers by the name of Muhammad Ibn Idrees (Imam Shafi). He will be more detrimental to my followers than Iblis. And there shall arise a man from among my followers by the name of Abu Hanifa, he will be the light of my Ummah.”
Classified fabricated by Ibn Jawzi in his book of fabricated Hadith Vol 1, p. 457.
The person who fabricated the above mentioned hadith is a member of the Hanafi school of thought. Once again we have seen how fanaticism in regards to school of thought has caused a person to lie about the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam).
FABRICATED HADITH – 8
“The mistake of Prophet David (Dawud) was in his lust”
Related by Abu Na’eem and classified fabricated by Imam Suyooti and Adh-Dhahaabee who said a liar by the name of Ahmad Ibn Ishaaq was found in the chain of transmitters.
The explanation of the above hadith is famous in Jewish and Christian circles Thus they claim that Prophet Dawud saw the body of a woman called Batshiba as she was taking a bath and he was overwhelmed with her remarkable beauty, so he enquired about her and requested that her husband should be placed on the front line of the battlefield to be killed by the enemies so that he will be able to marry his wife, which he did when her husband died.
The scholars of Islam agree unanimously among themselves that this story is from the Israeliyat (i.e. saying of the Jews) and not a Hadith of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam).
It is not our creed as Muslims to insult and slander any of the Prophets of Islam whether it be Muhammad (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) or any of the previous Prophets of Allah. It is not befitting of a Prophet to lust much less to cause the death of someone in order to satisfy his own lust. We as Muslims believe that the Prophets of Allah were all infallible. Meaning they did not commit a sin deliberately. Whatever slip they committed was merely a mistake and not a deliberate sin like Musa slaying of the Coptic Soldier in Egypt.
Anyone who insults or slanders any of the Prophets of Allah becomes a Kafir and deserves to be killed if he is living in an Islamic state. The insulter is killed whether he is a Muslim, Christian or Jew because to insult a Prophet is to insult Allah.
Anyone who insults Aisha (ra) and accused her of zina even though Allah has declared her innocent of this charge in Surah Noor verse 17 becomes a kafir and deserves to be killed wherever in the world he might be living.
As for those who insult Abu Bakr (ra), Umar (ra) or any other Sahaabah they are to be flogged and if they repent they are released from prison; if not they are imprisoned until death overtakes them. [See As-Sanul-Maslul by Ibn Taymiyya, for further reading on the topics insulting Allah, His Messenger (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) and the Companions.)

“There is no good in black people; when they are hungry they steal and when their stomach is full they commit zina. However they have two noble characteristics, which are – generosity to their guests and perseverance at times of hardship.”
Related by Tabarani and classified fabricated by Imam Bukhari and Ibn Jawzi.
This fabricated hadith as well as hadith 34 (in this book) is detrimental to the Islamic brotherhood and sisterhood because they create a feeling of nationalism and racism; which are both unbelief.
Ibnul Qayyim al Jawzia said all ahadith cursing black people are fabricated. Bilal (ra) the Muathin of the Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) was black and the Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) said: “Bilal is from my household ”
Our father Adam was black hence Allah said:
“And indeed, We created Mankind from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud.” (Surah Al Hijr, 15 : 26)
Prophet Musa was also black. If the people who fabricate this hadith say those were Prophets so it was expected for them to be good; we say to them Luqman the wise and Bilal were black with good character and they were not prophets. How could the above-mentioned khabar be authentic when the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) said to Bilal: “I heard the sound of your shoes in Paradise just in front of me. [Bukhari (Arabic/English) vol 5, p 68, hadith 97]
If black people didn’t have any good in them how was it possible for Bilal (ra) to be promised Paradise by the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam).
Narrated Jabir Ibn Abdullah (ra): “Umar used to say Abu Bakr is our chief and he manumitted our chief meaning Bilal.” [Bukhari (Arabic/English) vol 5, p 68, hadith 98]
In the Arab world people do not call their sons Bilal (ra) even though he was a prominent Sahabah; all this is due to racism on their part.
FABRICATED HADITH – 10
“My companions are like the stars in the sky, whichever one you follow you shall be guided”
Related by Ibn Hazm in Ihkaam 6/82, who said a liar was found in the Isnad called Salam Ibn Sulayman.
The companions of the Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) were humans like us; hence they were not infallible. Infallibility was exclusive to the Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam). Allah said:
“And he [Rosulullah (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam)] doesn’t speak from his desire but instead he speaks from a divine revelation which is revealed unto him.” (Surah Najm, 53 : 3-4)
Therefore the Prophet (Sallallahu a’laihi wa sallam) was infallible in issues that are connected with the deen. As for the Companions they were not infallible as this fabricated hadith is suggesting.
Ibn Abbas (ra) is reported to have said on one occasion that donkey meat is halal. According to Usool ul Fiqh we follow the Companions whenever one makes a statement and the rest of them received his verdict with acceptance. And if they should differ on an issue we follow the opinion, which is closest to Qur’an and Sunnah. We are obliged to follow the Sunnah of the four rightly guided Caliphs i.e. Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali (ra).
