The history of hadith

(Why and when it was written)


(9) Kill the dogs

Malik's Muwatta, Book 54, Number 54.5.13:

"Malik related from Nafi from Abdullah Ibn Umar that the messenger of God ordered all dogs (other than sheepdogs or hunting dogs) to be killed".

Ibn Hanbal's collection: The messenger of God said:

"You shall kill all black dogs, because they are devils."

Another nonsense and insult to Islam and to the prophet.

(10) Satan laughs when you yawn

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 509:

Abu Hurayra said, the prophet said: "Yawning is from Satan. If you are about to yawn, you should try to stop it as much as possible. If you yawn, Satan will laugh."

(11) The devil enters through your mouth

Sahih Muslim, Book 42, Number 7130:

"The son of Abu Said al-Khudri reported on the authority of his father that Allah's messenger (may peace be upon him) said: When one of you yawns, he should keep his mouth shut with the help of his hand, for it is the devil that enters therein."

Another nonsense labelled sahih hadith!

(12) Women in Hell

Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 28:

Narrated by Ibn Abbas, the prophet said; "I looked at Hell and the majority of its dwellers were women".

In Bukhari Volume 1, Book 6, Number 301 it is explained that the majority of women end up in hell because they did not obey their husbands!

The Quran does not support the strange idea which implies that the criteria for attaining Paradise is obedience to the husband! The only criteria for attaining Paradise is belief in God, refraining from idol worship and observing righteousness. The above two hadith are obviously the product of the culture of Arabs in those days and how they treated women as inferior creatures who must always be subordinate to their husbands! Some imams today still openly preach such false concepts. Many of them consider women to be nothing but a distraction and temptation for sin!

(13) Dwellers of Paradise are mostly the poor!

In Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 124, we read that the majority of the people who entered Paradise were the poor, while the wealthy were stopped at the gate!

Here again is another hadith, considered authentic, which clearly contradicts the Quran. The Quran teaches that the dwellers of Paradise are the most righteous. Righteousness is totally independent of the wealth of a person. This is because righteousness can be maintained through multiple means and not only through monetary spending. Moreover, the Quran teaches that God forgives all sins for those who refrain from idol worship (4:48) and who worship Him sincerely. This once again confirms that being poor or being rich will never have any relevance as to whether a person ends up in Paradise or Hell.

(14) Moses naked

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 5, Number 277:

"Abu Hurayra said, the messenger of God said, "The Children of Israel used to take a bath looking at each other while they were completely naked, while Moses used to take his bath by himself alone. They said, why is not Moses taking his bath with us, maybe he has large testicles. One day, Moses went to take a bath, he put his clothes on a rock. The rock took his clothes and ran away. Moses ran naked after the rock calling on it to give him his clothes. The Children of Israel looked at the naked Moses and said, By God, he looks all right. Moses took his clothes from the rock and kept beating the rock."

The obvious question is: how can any person who calls himself a Muslim believe that prophet Muhammad said such words?

(15) Cursed is the woman

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 460:

Abu Hurayra said; the messenger of God said, "If a man calls his wife to his bed for sex and she refuses, then if he sleeps the night mad at her, she will be cursed by God and the angels until the morning."

Same nonsense is found in Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 121.

Another nonsense hadith that treats women as objects of satisfaction rather than partners in a marriage bond. This hadith does not come anywhere close to the teachings of God in the Quran where the relationship between a man and his wife is built on mutual love and respect.

And from among His signs is that He created for you spouses from yourselves that you may find tranquillity in them. And He placed love and mercy between you. In that are signs for people who reflect. 30:21

(16) Lick your fingers and your plates

Sahih Muslim, Book 23, Numbers 5037-5044:

One would think that topics like Belief and Righteousness would be the ones given the most coverage in the 'Sahih Books', but amazingly we find other trivial topics that are given importance.

In Sahih Muslem, we find no less than 8 hadith that advocate the importance of licking the fingers after finishing a meal:

Hadith 5043 says:

"Abu Hurayra said, the messenger of God said, "When any of you eat, you should lick your fingers because you do not know in which one are the blessings (Baraka)."

One is left speechless after reading such garbage and wondering how the millions of Muslims believe this nonsense!

(17) Satan eats with his left hand

Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 27, Number 3768:

Umar Ibn Abu-Salamah said, the messenger of God said, "If any of you eat, you should eat with your right hand, and drink with the right hand, because Satan eats and drinks with his left hand."

(18) Days of the week and creation

Sahih Muslim, Book 39, Number 6707:

Abu Hurayra said, "The messenger of God took me by the hand and said, God created the soil on Saturday, the mountains on Sunday, the trees on Monday, the abominations on Tuesday, the light on Wednesday, the animals on Thursday, and Adam on Friday afternoon."

Another nonsense hadith that defies all scientific knowledge.

(19) Husband as a god

Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 13, Number 2453:

Abu Said Al-Khudari said: the messenger of God said:

"A woman should not fast except with her husband's permission."

Again we note the contradiction between the hadith and the Quran. Nowhere in the Quran is the husband given the authority to allow or prevent his wife from observing her religious duties! These duties are authorised by God and are totally independent of the relation between a man and his wife, or for that matter, any human relations.

(20) The sins of Muslims are transferred to the Jews and Christians

Sahih Muslim, Book 37, Number 6666:

"Abu Burda said that his father said the messenger of God said; "On the Last Day, some Muslims will come with sins as high as the mountains, but God will forgive them for these sins and transfer these sins to the Jews and the Christians."

This fabricated hadith contradicts the teachings of the Quran as stated in 6:164, where every soul is responsible only for what it did and also contradicts 3:199, where God confirms that some of the Jews and Christians are believers in God and they reverence Him and will receive their recompense from their Lord.

(21) Spit on your left side

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 54, Number 513:

Abu Qatada said the prophet said: "The good dream is from God and the bad dream is from Satan. If one of you has a bad dream, you should spit on your left side and seek refuge in God from Satan."

No Comment!

(22) Do not spit in front of yourself, God is there

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 132:

Abdulla Ibn Omar said, the messenger of God once saw sputum on the Qibla wall, he cleaned it then came to the people and told them, "If you are praying do not spit to the front of you, because that is where God is, when you are praying."

Obviously the fabricator of this lie against the prophet forgot that God is not a person who can be located in one spot, God is everywhere.

(23) Spit under your left foot

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 22, Number 305:

Narrated Anas:
The prophet said, "Whenever anyone of you is in prayer, he is speaking in private to his Lord and so he should neither spit in front of him nor on his right side but to his left side under his left foot."

(24) Dip the fly in your food

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 71, Number 673:

Abu Hurayra said; the messenger of God said; "If a fly falls in your drink, you should immerse it completely in the drink, because in one of the wings is the disease and in the other wing is the healing."

What a great medical advice to establish perfect hygiene!

(25) Do not build masjids on tombs

They do not even follow their own hadith!

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 23, Number 472:

Abu Hurayra said, the messenger of God said; "Cursed are the Jews and the Christians, they made out of their prophet's tombs masjids (places for worship)."

So, what did the Muslims do with Muhammad's tomb after his death? While claiming to believe in what is written in these hadith books, they built a masjid on his tomb. Moreover, we find in the Quran a mention of only one Haram Masjid, that being the Kaaba in Mecca. However, Muslims who have idolised the prophet against his wishes have elevated his masjid into being the second Haram Masjid, they have two sacred Masjids which they call "Al-Haramayn".

(26) Women should breast feed adult men!

Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Number 3425:

'Aysha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Salim, the freed slave of Abu Hadhaifa, lived with him and his family in their house. She (i.e. the daughter of Suhail) came to Allah's apostle (may peace be upon him) and said, "Salim has attained (puberty) as men attain, and he understands what they understand, and he enters our house freely, I, however, perceive that something (rankles) in the heart of Abu Hudhaifa." Whereupon Allah's apostle (may peace be upon him) said to her, "Suckle him and you would become unlawful for him, and (the rankling) which Abu Hudhaifa feels in his heart will disappear." She returned and said, "So I suckled him, and what (was there) in the heart of Abu Hudhaifa disappeared."


The sahih hadith is also reported in Sunan Abu Dawud, Imam Malik’s Muwatta and Ibn Majah. Sadly, many renowned Muslim scholars endorse this nonsense:

Dr. Izzat Attya, head of the department of hadith in Al-Azhar, which is the world’s most prestigious Islamic University, issued a fatwa (religious decree), declaring that it is legitimate for a working Muslim woman to breast-feed her male colleague to avoid the sin of 'khulwa' (being in the company of a male stranger in seclusion).

The widely acclaimed contemporary hadith scholar, late Sheikh Al-Alabani did not see anything wrong in such a hadith. In a twelve minute audio-taped speech he said: "Regarding this hadith, I personally don't see any objection for a man to be nursed directly from the nipple. But if someone ever felt uncomfortable with some one getting breast-fed from his wife (even if he only sees just the nipple), he could opt for an alternative way, and that is through a cup"!

Sheikh Al Obeikan, an adviser to the royal court and consultant to the Ministry of Justice in Saudi Arabia, said that women who come into regular contact with men, who are not their relatives, should give them their breast milk in order to make them their relatives.
Obeikan’s remarks were followed by an announcement by another powerful Saudi cleric Abi Ishaq Al Huwaini, who asked women to allow the men to suckle the milk directly from their breast.
Other religious figures tried to soften the outrageous nature of this hadith by saying that the one in the hadith only drank milk from a utensil and not from the breast of Aysha!
This is obviously a feeble excuse since the Arabic word used in the hadith is "Arde'ee" which means suckle/breast feed, it does not mean allow him to drink from a utensil!

Needless to say, this hadith contradicts all measures of decency in the Quran. Women are commanded in the Quran to cover their breasts (24:31) let alone breastfeed adult men!
This hadith is a flagrant lie against the prophet, and the ones who believe such a hadith are the ones who have no respect whatsoever for the integrity of the prophet (despite the fact that they claim otherwise).


These were just some examples to demonstrate the lies that have been fabricated against prophet Muhammad and how these fabricated hadith paint the prophet as a man who issued teachings which contradicted many Quranic issues. It also demonstrates the profound prophecy given by God in the Quran of how Satan will fabricate fancy words and attribute them to the prophets of God, and how the disbelievers will uphold such false hadith:

And thus We have made for every prophet enemies from among the human and jinn devils. They inspire to one another fancy sayings in order to deceive. Had your Lord willed, they would not have done it. You shall disregard them and what they fabricate.
This is to let the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter listen to it, accept it, and thus commit what they are committing. 6:112-113

The true believers will obey God's command and uphold no hadith other than the Quran:

These are God's revelations (Quran) that We recite to you with truth, so in which hadith other than God and His revelations do they believe? 45:6 (also 7:185, 77:50 and 31:6).

For all the above, we can now understand the reason as to why the messenger of God will complain to God on the Day of Judgement that his people have deserted the Quran 25:30.
