UDHIYA: The Pagan Blood Sacrifice
IS ANIMAL SACRIFICING THE COMMEMORATION OF HAZRAT IBRAHIM? There is a rampant belief among Muslims that they slaughter animals, sheep, goat, cow, camel in memory of Ibrahim’s a. s. attempted slaughter of his son Ismail a.s. - That Allah saved Ismael a. s. by replacing him with a ram sent from heaven. Does Allah play games with His servants? How much more Biblical can one get?
THE MOMENTOUS SACRIFICE - NO RAM, NO ANIMAL:
37:102 And when he was old enough to strive along with him, Abraham said, “O My dear son! I have a vision that I must give you to a life of test and tribulation for a Noble cause. So look, what do you think?” He said, “O My father! Do what you are commanded. God willing, you will find me of the steadfast.” [‘Zibh’ & ‘Zabh’ = Sacrifice = Disregarding comfort for a Noble cause]
The Binding of Isaac (Hebrew: עֲקֵידַת יִצְחַק Aqedat Yitzhaq, in Hebrew also simply "The Binding", הָעֲקֵידָה Ha-Aqedah) is a story from the Hebrew Bible found in Genesis 22. In the biblical narrative, God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac, on Moriah. Abraham begins to comply, when a messenger from God interrupts him. Abraham then sees a ram and sacrifices it instead.
This episode has been the focus of a great deal of commentary in traditional Jewish, Christian, and Muslim sources, as well as being addressed by modern scholarship.
According to Al-Tabari –it was Issac.
Among early Muslim scholars, however, there was a dispute over the identity of the son. The argument of those early scholars who believed it was Isaac rather than Ishmael (notably ibn Qutaybah and al-Tabari) was that "God's perfecting his mercy on Abraham and Isaac" referred to his making Abraham his friend, and to his rescuing Isaac.
[ which side he is on ] !
Verily, Abu Mukhnaf is deemed a master and Imam in the field of history. Let us present the words of the great Sunni scholars, who accepted the vital rank of Abu Mukhnaf in the field of narrating historical incidents. Ibn Katheer records:
“Ibn Jarir narrated from Abi Makhnaf Lut bin Yahya who is one of the Imams in that matter (history)”
Al-Bedaya wa al-Nehaya, Volume 7 page 343
At another place, the favorite Imam of Nawasib Ibn Katheer records:
“And whatever we have narrated, some of those things are in front of our eyes and had Ibn Jareer and other Imams and Huffaz not narrated this, we would have also not narrated the same and the majority of those narrations are from Abu Mukhnaf Lut bin Yahyah and he was a Shia, according to the Imams he is weak in Hadith but he was a Hafiz in history, there are historical reports which no one possesses other than him and that is the reason that most writers have referred to him”
Al-Bedaya wa al-Nehaya, Volume 8 page 221
Dr. Abdulrahman al-Badawi said in the introduction of his famous book “Al-Shia wa al-Khawarij” page 9:
“Abi Makhnaf is the most truthful narrator according to al-Tabari and he highly trusted him.”
Let us now present the words of another favorite Imam of Nawasib namely Dhahabi:
“Abu Makhnaf is not thiqah, but he is a specialist in history”
Tarikh al-Islam, Volume 5 page 195
Allamah Salahuddin Khalil bin Aybak al-Safadi (d. 764 H) records in his lengthy work ‘Al-Wafi bel Wafyat’ Volume 24 page 305:
“They said that Abu Makhnaf acquired more knowledge about Iraq’s battles and history than anyone else”
Abu Makhnaf - died 157 AH-looks like he was working for Bol.tv / PAKISTAN !
Author of - Kitab Maqtal Al-Husayn (The history of Battle of Karbala)
Sole narrator of the event at Karbala. Al-Tabari quotes him in his book.
Al-Tabari 224-310 AH -Crypto Majoosi!
According to Al- Tabri, Hussain [RA] was killed on 22nd Safar not on 1oth of Muharram. So Mukhnaf is so reliable and Tabri quotes him, then where 10th Muharram comes from. Are we missing something, or somebody else was killed on 10th of Muharram16 AH- Rustum, the Persian commander.
[We have been duped big time]
Ibn-Kathir 701-774 AH
According to Ibn-Kathir –when the Exalted Messenger [AS] married Khadija [RA], his age was 25 years and her age was also 25 years. Why insist on 25, 40!
Javed Ghamdi was asked on tv show, that you talk about Israiliat in Bukhari, so when new Bukhari is printed, delete those- he said if we do that , then there will be hardly anything left in Bukhari
