Is authenticity of the Hadiths questionable?

YouTube – A Muslim talks about questionable Hadiths in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CC4TuYrSNJs&feature=youtu.be

Muslims want to preserve the authentic Hadiths and it will be an enormous task to take out the fabricated ones from the real ones. Most of the Hadiths directly contradict the adl and rahma of the Prophet and God. If Islam were a Political party committed to control and oppress others, most the Hadiths would have suited the religion, but Islam is not about ruling people with enforcers' danda (stick), it is about living cohesively in harmony with other people and nature.

Indeed the great Imam, Imam Bukhari rejected 99% of the Hadiths based on transmission, if he had the time, he would have reduced 99% of the 1% left based on authenticity – do they meet the criteria of Rabbul Aalameen, Rahmatul Aalameen and justness. http://hadithsandislam.blogspot.com/2014/11/hadith-rejection-rate-is-99-imam-bukhari.html

Dr. Shabbir Ahmed in Florida has begun the process of compiling the list - http://hadithsandislam.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-criminals-of-islam-by-dr-shabbir.html  and Hasan Mahmud, the Sharia expert at World Muslim Congress has written an article – examples of Sharia, one of the most read pieces - http://sharialaws.blogspot.com/2011/10/examples-of-sharia-law.html

The process of devaluing some of the work of the great Ulema has begun a long time ago and we have started writing about it in public. .http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mike-ghouse/two-islams-the-mangledup-_b_5748280.html
   and many more pieces.

The first thing to do is question them if they meet the criteria of Quran, then gradually over a period of time thru participation of the guardians of the Hadiths, remove them. The Ahl-e-Hadith and other groups are very capable of seeing the reason and rationality of Quran and would eventually see the value in it, as long as they don’t feel threatened. It is the sense of threat that makes people to hang on to what they are familiar with.

Quran is the only book God has promised to protect and Alhamdu Lillah, it will remains in his hands, none others were under his protection and we need to preserve the parts of Hadiths that offer wisdom and guidance to live cohesively within the Aalameen with Justice and mercy to “all” beings.

Thank God for all of them, some day, Insha Allah, together we will achieve that, and I thank Allah for blessing us the life in these United States where we fear none but Allah.

 Insha Allah, we will work on holding a conference in 2016 inviting the major scholars of Hadith to come together and share their point of view and listen to others.

 Thank you,

  1. Salam :
    WE have started the same discussion and are trying to remove all the controversial Hadith from the book that is read after every prayer at our Masjid. Dar Ul Noor.. in Va.
    There are obviously some such ridiculous ones that one feels ashamed to sit and listen to them . ( Similar such things are their in other religions too. )
    Mr Hoffman , German , highly educated , politician,who became a Muslim and genuinely cares about Muslims have also suggested to remove those hadith that contradictory to Qur'an in his books. He has 3 books. .
    Paul Findley who is a very Good God Loving and God fearing Christian and a representative of US Govt. for 22 yrs, at present he is in his 90's , may God keep him healthy and give a long life. . He also mentioned that Qur'an the primary source of Islamic religion there are no problems but the secondary literature that is the Hadith,some of it , is the problem as is the case in Christianity too with the secondary literature..
    The thing is there is no hate being spewed out by the organization runs by some .eg Pamela Geller and her kind against Christianity , it is only against Islam. So the Islamic Scholars NEED TO WAKE UP FROM THEIR SLUMBER and review and remove all controversial Hadith, just like at one time all the unauthentic Qur'anic copies were removed and only one standardised remained and remains for 15 centuries , a similar work has to be done by the Islamic Scholars of the present day. If we do not do this work that means we have not lived in these times. the problem of the present times is the spread of hatred against Muslims and ridicule of Muslims based on fabricated Hadith. We as Muslims must be the problem solvers . Not just about Hadith about any and every need of humanity one has to be a problem solver. That is what our Beloved Prophet did , solved all the existing problems. There was disunity ,he United. There was oppression of women, (a girt infant was buried alive by some, it used to happen among the Greeks too in those days not unique to Arab Culture , he stopped it in his ministry ot 23 yrs) he removed Oppression.. There was parasitic behavior of some giving loans , quadrupling their equity, he made it illegal..
    In fact this is basically what he did : gave Humanity a model of best Human behavior and he helped practicalise it . He was the Emperor of Emperors yet he took only what is needed , lived a life of simplicity , love and justice and compassion. He could have lived like the emperors of Persia and Rome . He did not , neither did the other reformers lived like that gilded in gold.Eg Moses. and Jesus son of Mary. Although none were as successful as Mohammed, still our beloved Prophet taught simplicity and sympathy empathy and justice and lived it that way.( Some people make the life of Prophet , what he said and what he did . as more important than Qur'an, this is by dwelling into the minutia and miss the larger picture totally.sometimes) .
    Our job is to achieve that good gold standard of behavior while we are alive. Qur'an is easy to understand easy to remember and its practice makes Life easy.

  2. Salam : Good job , Thank you for the links I am sharing it with others and my family.

  5. Hadith contains daily practices of the Prophet (pbuh) these have been passed down via chains of narrators. Ahadith were collected by famous Muhaddiths such as Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim in their Sahih
