In the following section we will read some of the most outrageous lies and fabrications that the hadiths scholars call authentic (sahih). They show how desperate and confused were these scholars in collecting anything that had been alleged to the Prophet as long as they are content that the Isnad (Chain of narrators) is creditable! This was done irrespective of the contents of the hadith. Whether it contradicts the Quran or common sense did not seem to matter much!
The following are just a sample of these sahih lies:
(1) Do not cross your leg
Gaber Ibn Abdullah said, “The messenger of God prohibited a man from crossing one leg over the other while lying down on his back ” Moslem
(2) Cross your leg
Ebada Ibn Tameem said , his father said that he saw the messenger of God lying down on his back in the mosque while crossing his legs.” Sahih Moslem
(3) Do not drink standing up
Sahih Moslem, Book 23, Number 5017:
“Abu Hurayra said, the messenger of God said, “Do not drink while standing up, if someone forgot and did it, he should vomit what he drank.”
(4) Drink standing up
Ibn Abbas said, “The messenger of God drank from the water of Zamzam while standing up….”
(5) Urinate in a standing position
Sahih Moslem, Book 2, Number 522:
“The Prophet urinated in a standing position”
(6) Do not urinate in a standing position
“The Prophet never urinated in a standing position.” Hanbel.
(7) The Prophet Foretold Future Events
In Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 10, Number 575:
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar:
The Prophet prayed one of the’lsha’ prayer in his last days and after finishing it with Taslim, he stood up and said, “Do you realize (the importance of) this night?
Nobody present on the surface of the earth to-night would be living after the completion of one hundred years from this night.”
The people made a mistake in grasping the meaning of this statement of Allah’s Apostle and they indulged in those things which are said about these narrators (i.e. some said that the Day of Resurrection will be established after 100 years etc.) But the Prophet said,
“Nobody present on the surface of earth tonight would be living after the completion of 100 years from this night”; he meant “When that century (people of that century) would pass away.”
The Quran – Surah 6 Verse 50
Prophet Muhammad says to the people he does not know the future:
[6:50] Say, “I do not say to you that I possess the treasures of GOD. Nor do I know the future. Nor do I say to you that I am an angel. I simply follow what is revealed to me.” Say, “Is the blind the same as the seer? Do you not reflect?”
Clearly the above hadith goes against this Quranic Verse…
(8) Man in the image of God
Sahih Moslem, Book 40, Number 6809:
Abu Hurayra said that the messenger of God said; ” Allah the Exalted and Glorious created Adam in His own image.”
Another Lie and Fabrication narrated by Abu Hurayra, and accepted by Moslem in his collection.
(9) Adam was 60 arms length high and 7 arm length wide
Abu Hurayra said, the prophet said; ” God created Adam, 60 arm length high and seven arm
And in Sahih Moslem, Book 40, Number 6795 Adam is 60 cubits high!
(10) Women, dogs and donkey
Sahih Moslem, Book 4, Number 1032:
“The messenger said that a prayer is void if an ass, woman or black dog passes in front of the one praying”!
What a gross insult to women, could these words really come from a prophet of God?
(11) Bad omen in the woman
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 30:
“Bad omen is in the woman, the horse and the home.”
Another reflection of the prejudice against women that was a character of those who fabricated hadiths. True Islam which is derived from the Quran gives full respect to the woman and never uses such descriptions.
(12) Distinction and No distinction among the messengers, contradiction
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 608:
“Ibn Abbas said, the prophet said; “No one should say that I am better than Younus (Jonah) Ibn Matta.”
Despite the above Hadith, we find that the hadith books are full of stories that make the Prophet Muhammed better than all the other Prophets and human beings. These hadiths contradict the above hadith and also contradict the teachings of the Quran. The Quran contains a clear command to all believers not to make any distinction among God’s messengers (2:285).
Those who have been claiming to follow the hadiths books have conveniently ignored the repeated hadiths that call on the believers not to make distinction among the messengers.
