In Response To: Who Wrote Sahih Bukhari ??? (abdalaziz ariff / indianapolis)

The mullahs have long abandoned the Quran. This means their knowledge of the Quran is now almost non existent. Contrary to what many people think, simple basic questions about the Quran will elicit blank stares from them. Here is a simple example. For their easy remembrance the mullahs have divided the Quran into 30 numbered parts or juzu. But few of them will know how many chapters or surahs there are in the Quran. The answer is 114.Such is the knowledge level of the average mullah about the Quran.
In this book so far you have read dozens of verses from the Quran. To the mullahs these verses will appear like Greek. The Quran records a complaint by the prophet : 25:30 And the Messenger will say: O my Lord! surely my people have abandoned the Quran. Arabic transliteration : “Waqala Rasul ul Allah Ya Rabbi Inna kaumi ittakhazu hadha al Quraana mahjuura” This is exactly what the mullahs have done. They have totally abandoned the Quran. So what do the mullahs depend on? They will fall back almost entirely on their false hadith and other non Koranic sources. The sunni mullahs say endlessly that in their pantheon of hadith, the writings of Bukhari‘ are second only to the Koran’ as the source of their ‘religion’. Yet there are thousands of these hadith floating around. The everyday ‘Islam’ that struts on the world stage with its suicide bombings, its decapitations, its shariah laws, stoning women to death, kidnapping school girls, outlawing the reading of books, burning down churches and now blowing up mosques as well is based on these hadith collections of the mullahs. They are not from the Koran. Nothing the mullahs uphold is from the Koran. The mullahs say that without their hadith collections they cannot even understand the Koran. This belief is in direct contradiction with the Koran which says that the Koran has been made easy for our remembrance. 54:17 And certainly We have made the Koran easy for remembrance, but is there anyone who will TAKE HEED ? Obviously for emphasis the Koran repeats this particular verse three more times in 54:22, 54:32 and 54:40. It is simple logic that to enable people to take heed of the Koran, the book must be easy to remember. Hence the multiple assurances. A Book of Guidance has to be user friendly. The mullahs say that the magnum opus of their hadith collections is the work of Bukhari - a Persian who was born and raised in Bokhara in Central Asia. His collection, widely known as the Sahih Bukhari is touted by the mullahs as the second most important source of reference in Islam after the Quran.

According to the mullahs, Bukhari is believed to have died in 870 AD which is 238 years after the prophet. This means Bukhari never met the prophet, the companions of the prophet, the generation succeeding the prophet (tabiin) or even the generation after them (tabii tabiin). Bukhari’s writings of what he thought were the sayings of the prophet were therefore entirely hearsay. The mullahs themselves do not read the collection known as Sahih Bukhari from cover to cover. If they do so they would realise that the Sahih Bukhari tries to explain only one third or less of the 6,348 verses in the Koran. There are not enough Bukhari hadith to explain the entire Koran. And they will also come across the following words “No hadith were recorded here” as Bukhari’s ‘explanation’ for 28 surahs or chapters of the Koran. (See Sahih Bukhari, Volume 6 -Tafsir of the Koran, translation by Dr Muhammad Muhsin Khan, University Medina Al Munawwara). Bukhari himself admits that he has no hadith to explain 28 complete surahs or chapters of the Koran. That is 25 percent of the 114 surahs. And the remaining hadith are sketchy, ridiculous and do not throw any new light on any of the verses of the Koran at all. Yet the mullahs say the collection of Bukhari hadith is ‘second only to the Koran’. Here is a description of Bukhari by an admirer: “If the rich literature of Hadith is assumed a splendid collection of pearls, Al-Jami'us Sahih of Imam al-Bukhari is rightfully privileged to be called a gigantic ocean serenely flowing for the providence and safeguard of those precious pieces of magnificence. A vast, yet shoreless ocean having lavishly quenched the thirst of many, it is unanimously held in the high esteem of being 'the most authentic book after the book of God' by advocates and adversaries alike’. They speak with pride about “the dazzling level of measures” adopted by Bukhari in preserving the credibility of his chain of narrators or sanad. Despite all these comments there is no evidence that Bukhari even wrote the so called 'Sahih Bukhari'. The mullahs themselves say that "Bukhari’s text has not come down to us in a single uniform version, but exists in several ‘narrations’ (riwayat), of which the version handed down by al-Kushaymani (d. 968 AD) on the authority of Bukhari’s pupil al-Firabri is the one most frequently accepted by the scholars".

They do not have a complete record of hadith which they can say with certainty was written by the hands of Bukhari. There is no such thing. What they have are bits and pieces that have been sorted and put together over a period of almost 600 years. The mullahs realize that they are running on empty. To lend credence to their adulation of Bukhari the mullahs say that up to 70 commentaries have been written on Bukhari’s ‘great Sahih’. According to them the most celebrated of these commentaries is “without question the Fath al-Bari(‘Victory of the Creator’) by Imam Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani, a work which was the crown both of its genre and of the Imam’s academic career. It is appreciated by the scholars for the doctrinal soundness of its author, for its complete coverage of Bukhari’s material, its mastery of the relevant Arabic sciences, the wisdom it shows in drawing lessons (fawa’id) from the hadith it expounds, and its skill in resolving complex disputes over variant readings. For Bukhari’s text has not come down to us in a single uniform version, but exists in several ‘narrations’ (riwayat), of which the version handed down by al-Kushaymani on the authority of Bukhari’s pupil al-Firabri is the one most frequently accepted by the scholars” - (See “Fath al-Bari: Commentary on Sahih al-Bukhari” by Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad, http://www.sunnah.org). By their own admission their collection of Bukhari hadith is compiled from a ‘commentary’ by Ibnu Hajar Asqalani. IbnuHajar Asqalani died in 1466 AD which is 596 years after Bukhari (d. 870 AD). The mullahs say Bukhari never wrote down a complete book. There were no printing presses or photocopy machines or computers available at that time. The Sahih Bukhari was never extant as a complete work. And 596 years separated Ibnu Hajar from Bukhari. So how did Ibnu Hajar write a commentary about a book that was never extant? To overcome the gap the mullahs say Ibnu Hajar Asqalani based his writing on the commentary of al-Khushaymani who died in 968 AD. Thus they narrow the gap to 498 years between Ibnu Hajar Asqalani and the commentary of al Khushaymani. However even the commentary of al Khushaymani did not exist in one complete collection. And Khushaymani is still separated from Bukhari by 133 years. To fill this gap the mullahs call upon al Firabri (Muhammad ibn Yusuf ibn Matar al Firabri d. 899AD) who they say was the missing link and source of the collection of hadith from Bukhari (d. 870 AD) to Khushaymani (d. 968 AD) IbnuHajarAskalani (d. 1466 AD).

The reader must bear in mind that throughout this passage of 596 years between Bukhari and Ibnu Hajar, their own evidence admits that there never was any completely written down collection of Bukhari hadith. The claim that Ibnu Hajar Asqalani wrote his commentary of Bukhari based on Kushaymani is subject to much guesswork. 463 years separated them with no copiers, printed books or proper records to bridge the huge gaps in time. The same argument goes for the 70 other commentators. The number 70 is itself mind boggling. Each of the 70 will have his own sources, complete with their own versions and interpretations. This guesswork forms the basis of their religion. Here is a typical example of the mullahs language : “Ibn Hajar frequently uses the Kushaymani variant as his standard text, but gives his reasons, often in complex detail, for preferring other readings where these seem to have particular merit. In doing this he makes it clear that he is authorised, through the ijaza-system, for all the riwayat he cites”. This is a round about way of saying that Ibnu Hajar Asqalani merely patched together his idea of what he thought the Sahih Bukhari should be. This is because there were variances in the available sources. So this is what they call the Sahih Bukhari. And the mullahs say "there are few hadith which can be understood adequately without reference to the often complex debates which have taken place concerning them between the scholars". So first they say that the hadith explains the Koran. Then they say that without the mullahs complex debates you cannot even understand the hadith. Muslims will now have to depend on the complex debates between the mullahs before they can understand the mullahs hadith, only after which the Muslims can understand the Koran. Despite so much bravado, the Bukhari hadith still says ‘No hadith were recorded here’ for 28 surahs of the Koran. The proof of the pudding is in the eating. Here is an example from Bukhari’s pieces of magnificence, followed by Ibnu Hajar’s explanation of the same in greater detail. Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 188: Narrated 'Amr bin Maimun- During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them. Ibnu Hajar Asqalânî gives a more detailed narration of this event from Amir b. Maymûn: “I was in Yemen tending the sheep of my people up

upon an elevation. A male monkey came with a female and laid his head on her hand. Then a smaller monkey came and beckoned towards her, so she gently slipped her hand out from under the cheek of the first monkey and followed him. He mated with her while I looked on. Then she returned and gently tried to slip her hand back under the cheek of the first monkey, but he woke up suddenly, smelled her, and cried out. Then the monkeys gathered round and he began screaming while pointing towards her with his hand. The monkeys went all about and came back with that monkey that I recognized. They dug a pit for the two of them and stoned them both. So I had witnessed stoning being carried out by other than Adam’s descendants.” Foolish stories like these may have excited the minds of illiterate villagers in ninth century Arabia but surely modern citizens of the 21st century world cannot continue believing that these are the teachings of a prophet. The reader must bear in mind that this is despite the mullah’s claim that the “Al-Jami'usSahih of Imam al-Bukhari is rightfully privileged to be called a gigantic ocean serenely flowing for the providence and safeguard of those precious pieces of magnificence”. Here are some more examples of those precious pieces of magnificence: Bukhari Volume 1, Book 9, Number 490: Narrated 'Aisha: The things which annul the prayers were mentioned before me. They said, "Prayer is annulled by a dog, a donkey and a woman." I said, "You have made us (i.e. women) dogs. I saw the Prophet praying while I used to lie in my bed between him and the Qibla. Whenever I was in need of something, I would slip away for I disliked to face him." So women are akin to dogs and donkeys. Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 537: Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said "Ifa house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease." Dunking flies in your tea will spread disease. Here is an adjunct to this strange cure : (Bukhari Kitabul Ilm vol.2, hadith 77). Mahmood bin Rabe narrates, “I still remember when I was five years old, the Holy Prophet rinsed his mouth and then spat the water into mine”

This is a nonsensical and most unhygienic practice. It will spread even more disease. Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 5: Narrated 'Ata: We presented ourselves along with Ibn Abbas at the funeral procession of Maimuna at a place called Sarif. Ibn Abbas said, "This is the wife of the Prophet so when you lift her bier, do not jerk it or shake it much, but walk smoothly because the Prophet had nine wives and he used to observe the night turns with eight of them, and for one of them there was no night turn." This is a mystery too. Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 6: Narrated Anas: The Prophet used to go round (have sexual relations with) all his wives in one night, and he had nine wives. (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:52). The (Exalted) Messenger used to visit all nine of his wives every night.The Holy Messenger used to have intercourse with all of his wives in one hour of the day and night (without taking a bath) and these (wives) were eleven. (Bukhari, Book of Bath 1:189) The Holy Prophet had the (sexual) power of 30 men (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:52) The Prophet said that the best man amongst his followers is the one who has the greatest number of wives. Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 7: Narrated Said bin Jubair: Ibn 'Abbas asked me, "Are you married?" I replied, "No." He said, "Marry, for the best person of this (Muslim) nation (i.e., Muhammad) of all other Muslims, had the largest number of wives." All these stories above about having the largest number of wives and multiple sexual relations are proof of the mullah fixation with sexual promiscuity. They misuse the Prophet’s name to satisfy their sexual fantasies. We will see more examples of this in this book. (Bukhari, Kitabul Ikrah p.669) The Holy Prophet asked, “Who will buy this slave from me?” Naeem bought him for 800 Dirham (pieces of silver). Bukhari has made the prophet a slave trader ! On the contrary the prophet taught in the Koran to free the slaves. Here is the evidence :

90:11-13 “He should choose the difficult path. Which one is the difficult path? The freeing of slaves”. (Bukhari 2:134) The sun rises between the two antlers of Satan. And we thought the sun rose in the East, over Japan the Land of the Rising Sun ! Bukhari has other ideas about the East : (Bukhari, Book of Talaq 3:132) Tribulation (fitna) rises in the East. (Bukhari, Book of Sales and Book of Nikah 3:59) “After the fall of Khyber, people described the beauty of Safia Bint Hui, the new bride of a slain enemy soldier. The Prophet chose her for himself. On the way to Madina he stopped and had intercourse with her. His companions did not know if she was a wife or a concubine. Later, a veil was drawn between her and the men-folk and they came to know that she was a wife.” This is cruel and inhuman treatment of a female war captive. This obviously fake hadith is another manifestation of the mullah’s own sexual fantasies. Plus it is a great slander against the good name of the prophet. About the treatment of the enemy and the prisoners of war, the Koran says the following : 9:6 If one of the idol worshipers sought safe passage with you, you shall grant him safe passage, so that he can hear the word of Allah, then send him back to his place of security. That is because they are people who do not know. Surely even without her asking, the wife of a slain enemy soldier would have wanted to take her husband’s dead body back to her people and bury him according to her religious rites. And she would have wanted to remain in a place of security with her people. Secure from molest, sexual advances, rape and harm. But according to the mullahs the prophet had sexual intercourse with her. The Koran does not tell the prophet to have sexual intercourse with the wives of slain enemy combatants. Such behaviour was more representative of the barbaric or jahiliyya Arabs whom the prophet had come to civilise. (Bukhari Kitabul Qadr 3:543) A man inquired, “We earn income from these prostitutes so can we do coitus interruptus with them?” The Prophet said, “There is no sin in doing that”.

This hadith from Bukhari makes the prophet a pimp as well who consented to his companions earning an income from the prostitutes as well as practicing coitus interruptus with them. So from slave trading to sleeping with nine or eleven women in one night to sexual intercourse with the female captives to prostituting women, Bukhari’s “pieces of magnificence” make out the prophet of Islam to be a real demon possessed predator. (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:60). The Prophet said, “Bad luck, misfortune and doom can exist in a wife, a home and a horse” (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:61) “After my time, the greatest tribulation for men will be women” (Bukhari, Book of Nikah 3:97) “I saw that most of those entering the gate of hell fire were women” Again these are slanderous statements against women. Mothers, daughters, sisters, cousins and aunts are like dogs and donkeys. Now they are like horses too. Then they will enter the hellfire in large numbers. (Bukhari Kitab ul Ta'abir) “Seeing a black woman in a dream is the sign of an oncoming epidemic.” This is racist prejudice against black people. (Bukhari, Book of Medicine, vol.3).
