EXAMPLES OF HADITH WHICH INSULTS GOD
To follow are some examples of hadith which contain insults against God.
It may be useful to remind ourselves first with what God Almighty says about Himself in the Quran:
“No visions can encompass Him, but He encompasses all visions. He is the Compassionate, the Cognizant.” 6:103
“… There is nothing like Him, …” 42:11
When Moses asked to see God, God told him that he cannot see Him. 7:143
Now let us read some of the fabrications Bukhari and Moslem have in their books describing God and claiming it to be the words of the Prophet:
(1) God appears to His believers and they see Him as they see the full moon! (Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 93, Number 529).
(2) God descends to the lower Heaven every night.
(3) God put His foot over Hell fire so it becomes full, (Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 78, Number 654).
(4) God shows his leg to the believers to recognize Him.
(5) God laughs as humans! (Moslem Book 1, Number 349).
(6) God has five fingers, on the first He puts Heaven, on the second finger He puts the Earth, on the third, He puts the trees, on the fourth He puts the water and the land and on the fifth He puts the rest of His creation.
(7) God has a mansion in Heaven and Muhammed is permitted to enter it three times a day.
These lies and fabrications are not widely publicised by hadith scholars because they expose the true Bukhari. These hadiths also depict Islam to the Western reader as an archaic medieval religion that is the fiction of desert nomads! Can anyone blame them when they read such hadith then knowing that hadith forms the backbone of the Islam that is practised in the world today?
Other “sahih”, lies and fabrications
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….” Sahih Moslem.
(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) 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.
( 8 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 length wide.”
And in Sahih Moslem, Book 40, Number 6795 Adam is 60 cubits high!
(9) 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?
(10) 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.
(11) 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.
(12) Insult to God
“On the Day of Judgement, God will open His leg and show His thigh to the Prophet.”
“God will show His leg to the believers and they will fall prostrate.”
(13) Insulting women again, & nonsense
Sahih Bukhari and Muslim:
Abu Hurayra said, the Messenger of God said; “If it was not for the Jews (Children of Israel), the food would have never deteriorated and the meat would have never turned bad (rot, decay or spoil), and If it was not for Eve, no woman would have ever cheated on her husband.”
Again a blasphemy against God and His prophet. Insulting women and dogs is a characteristic feature of Abu Hurayra’s attitude. There is no way a prophet of God would have said this nonsense. Sill this hadith is one of those regarded as authentic (sahih) by hadith scholars! It is obvious that Abu Huraira who fabricated this hadith was so ignorant to even know that food decays because of germs and that has been the case even before the creation of the Jews. As for Eve, the Quran never blamed Eve for the sin that Adam and Eve committed together. Blaming all the women in the world for supposedly a sin that Eve committed is against a basic Quranic teaching which states that no soul is accountable for the sins of another (6:164).
(14) Women and leadership
Abu Bakara said the Messenger of God said:
“Any community whose leader is a woman will never succeed”
Another lie in the name of the Prophet that has no support from the Quran. This hadith actually proves the corruption of Imam Al-Bukhari himself who accepted this hadith from Abu Bakara, a man known to have lied and who has been punished in public by Omar Ibn Al-Khattab.
Such lies about women may explain why many Islamic communities which uphold the hadith as a second source of jurisdiction always treat women as inferior to men, and why women in such communities seldom get to the highest political positions. This hadith has no support from the Quran. We read in the Quran the story of the Queen of Sheba, who embraced Islam and who led a great nation.
(15) 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.
(16) Satan urinates in your ears
Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari:
Abu Hurayra said: “It was mentioned by the Messenger of God that a man slept the whole night (did not do his prayer). He said, Satan had urinated in his ears.”
(17) 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.”
(18 ) 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 sahih hadith!
(19) Satan sleeps in the back of your throat
Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim:
Abu Hurayra said the Prophet said:
“When someone wakes up from sleep, he/she should clean his/her nasopharynx (back of the throat), (by taking the water in the mouth, gurgle with it and bringing it through the nose) three times, because Satan spends the night in the nasopharynx (back of the throat).
Yet another nonsense by Abu Hurayra accepted by the Sahih books scholars!
(20) Satan farts loudly
Sahih Muslim and Bukhari:
Abu Hurayra said, the Prophet said:
“When the call for prayer is made, Satan turns around to leave while farting very loudly so that he would not hear the Azan (call for prayer), When Azan is finished Satan returns back……”
We may well wonder, how can anyone believe that the Prophet who was sent by God ever say such words, or what do these words have to do with the religion that teaches the worship of God alone!
(21) Satan and the donkey
Sahih Muslim, and Sahih Bukhari:
Abu Hurayra said the Prophet said:
“If you hear the crows of the roosters, ask God for some of His provisions, because the roosters saw an angel. And If you hear the hee-haw of the donkey, seek refuge in God from Satan, because the donkey saw the Shytan (Satan).
Another fabricated nonsense! Another insult to the prophet Muhammed by those who claim to respect him while attributing, or upholding nonsense to him in the so called Sahih books of hadith.
(22) Women in hell
Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 28:
Narrated by Ibn Abbas, the 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 heaven is obedience to the husband! The only criteria for attaining heaven 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 the woman to be a distraction and temptation for sin!
(23) Dwellers of hell are mostly the poor!
In Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 124, we read that the majority of the dwellers of heaven were the poor!
Here again is another hadith (considered authentic) which clearly contradicts the Quran. The Quran teaches that the dwellers of Heaven 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 send a person to hell nor save a person from hell.
(24) 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 are completely naked, while Moses used to take his bath by himself alone. They said, why is not Moses taking his bath with us , May be 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 the prophet Muhammad said such words?
(25) 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 refused. Then he slept 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.
“Among His proofs is that He created for you spouses from among yourselves, in order to have tranquillity and contentment with each other, and He placed in your hearts love and care towards your spouses. In this, there are sufficient proofs for people who think.” 30:21
(26) 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 equal importance.
In Sahih Moslem, 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 eats, you should lick your fingers because you do not know in which one is the blessings (Baraka).”
One is left speechless after reading such garbage and wondering how the millions of Muslims believe this garbage to be the essence of our beautiful religion.
(27) 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 eats, you should eat with your right hand, and drink with the right hand, because Satan eats and drinks with his left hand.
(28 ) Why babies cry?
Abu Huraiar said, the Messenger of God said; “Every newborn from the descendants of Adam is touched by Satan when born, and that is why he/she starts by crying. The only exception was Jesus and his mother.”
(29) 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.
(30) God established on the throne on the seventh day
Abu Hurayra said; “God created the Heavens and the Earth in six days then firmly established on the throne on the seventh day.”
This seventh day addition by Abu Hurayra is just a story he heard from his Jewish friend who influenced him to put many false hadiths taken from fabrications in the altered Torah. This false statement is a manipulation of 7:54.
(31) Wives easy route to heaven
Um Salma said the Messenger of God said; “If a woman dies while her husband was pleased with her, she will enter Paradise.”
Needless to say, the Quranic criteria for admission to heaven is belief in God plus righteousness. Obedience to the husband is not a criteria anywhere in the Quran.
(32) 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.
(33) 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.
(34) Dead Muslim means a Jew in Hell
Burda narrated that his father said the Messenger of God said; “Every time a Muslim man dies, God puts in hell fire a Jew or a Christian.”
(35) 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 !!
(36) 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 Quibla 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 hadith forgot that God is not a person who can be located in one spot, God is everywhere.
(37) Spit under your left foot
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 22, Number 305:
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.”
(38 ) When you spit rub it with your left shoe
Abdulla Ibn AL-Shakheer said his father said I prayed with the Messenger of God and saw him spit then rub his sputum with his left footwear.
Is this why the hadith scholars tell us that without hadith Islam is lost? Is it because the hadith gives us all the correct instructions of how to spit and where to spit?
(39) 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.”
Great medical advice!
(40) 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 Muhammed’s tomb after his death? While claiming to believe in what is written in these hadiths books, they built a masjid on his tomb. Moreover, we find in the Quran a mention of only one sacred (haram) masjid, that being the Kabaa in Mecca, however, Muslims who have idolised the Prophet against his wishes have elevated his masjid into being the second sacred masjid, they have two sacred masjids which they call “Al-Haramayn”.
(41) Women should breast feed adult men!
Sahih Muslim, Book 8, Number 3425:
‘A’isha (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.
