Introduction to the Hadiths

1st. Bukhari (810-870 A.D. 256 A.H.) made a collection of about 7,275 hadiths (3,000 to 4,000 independent sayings) (out of around 300,000 he knew of) that is almost universally recognized as "next only to the Qur’an in authority". Bukhari was nicknamed after the town of Bukhara in central Asia. All of this collection gives the ultimate claimed source of the hadith. Occasionally he gives multiple sources as saying the same. Bukhari gives many alleged miracles by Mohammed, though the Qur’an says Mohammed did no other miracles.

2nd. The Sahih Muslim, by Imam Muslim (817-875 A.D. 261 A.H.) is the second most authoritative collection, with 7,190 hadiths (4,000 independent sayings). He had a little different approach than Bukhari. He might repeat the same tradition 6, 10, or more times, one after another, many times with slightly different wording, based on the different sources claimed for the saying. Sahih Muslim gives an excerpt from a lost Sura of the Qur’an. It also gives many alleged miracles by Mohammed, though the Qur’an says Mohammed did no other miracles.

3rd. Abu Da’ud/Dawud/Dawood al Sidjistani (817-888/9 A.D. 275 A.H.) has the third most authoritative collection of hadiths. He submitted his collection to Ahmad bin Hanbal, who approved it. He collected 4,800 hadiths out of 500,000. His had the principle that "transmitters are considered trustworthy provided there is no formal proof to discredit them."

4rd. Abu’ ‘Isa Mohammed ibn ‘Isa bin Sawra ut-Tirmidhi (pronounced TER-mid-hee) (825-892 A.D. 209-279 A.H.) has the fourth highest hadith collection, called the Jami. It has about 3,956 hadiths. This pupil of Bukhari was called Tirmidhi because he was born near the village of Tirmidh on the Oxus River. To clear up confusion, there was also a famous Sufi mystic also nicknamed Tirmidhi, but they are not related.

5th. Sunan Nasa’i (or Al Nasa) (830-915 A.D. 215-303 A.H.) later than the others, had a collection of 5,764 hadiths called the Suand.

6th. Ibn Maja/Majah (824-886/887 A.D. 273 A.H.) also had a collection of 4,341 Hadiths, but it is not as authoritative as the first four.

These six collections together are called Sihah Sitta. Beyond these early six collections are others. Some Muslims believe a seventh hadith collection is also authoritative: the Muwatta’ Malik. Other Sunni Hadiths are: Sunan al-Darimi, Musnad of al-Humaydi, Sunan al-Daraqutni and the Musnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal

Yahya bin Sharaf ad-Din an-Nawawi (died 1278 A.D.) had 42 traditions called "the forty". It is memorized by children all over the world. Supposedly Mohammed said that whosoever knows these traditions Allah will raise up on the Last Day in the company of the jurists and the theologians.

Riyadh-us-Saleheen is a much later collection of 2,000 selected hadiths by Imam abu Zakariya Yahya bin Sharaf an-Nawawi (1233-1277/9 A.D.) He wrote a commentary on Bukhari and studied Sahih Muslim.

The Encyclopedia Britannica mentions that Nawawi said some traditions were abrogated by the fiction of a higher tradition that was never written down.

Fiqh us-Sunnah (1985-1992) is a more modern and systemized collection; there are five volumes so far in English.

"Narrated Ibn Muhairiz: I entered the Mosque and saw Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri and sat beside him and asked him about Al-’Azl (i.e. coitus interruptus). Abu Sa’id said, ‘We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the Ghazwa [battle] of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. So when we intended to do coitus interruptus, we said, ‘How can we do coitus interrupts before asking Allah’s Apostle who is present among us?’ We asked (him) about it and he said, ‘It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul till the Day of Resurrection is predestined to exist, it will exist."

Bukhari vol.5 book 59 no.515 p.364 and vol.5 book 59 no.518 p.376 tell of a Muslim warrior, who was wounded seriously, so he took some arrows out of his quiver and killed himself and went to Hell. Here is the quote: Bukhari vol.5 book 59 no.515 p.364 "Narrated Abu Huraira : We witnessed (the battle of) Khaibar. Allah’s Apostle said about one of those who were with him and who claimed to be a Muslim, ‘This (man) is from the dwellers of the Hell-Fire.’ When the battle started, that fellow fought so violently and bravely that he received plenty of wounds. Some of the people were about to doubt ( the Prophet’s statement ), but the man, feeling the pain of his wounds, put his hand into his quiver and took out of it, some arrows with which he slaughtered himself (i.e. committed suicide). Then some men amongst the Muslims came hurriedly and said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! Allah has made your statement true ; so-and-so has committed suicide.’ The Prophet said, ‘O so-and-so! Get up and make an announcement that none but a believer will enter Paradise and that Allah may support (this) religion with an unchaste (evil) wicked man.’"

When Jarir reached Yemen, there was a man who used to foretell and give good omens by casting arrows of divination. Someone said to him, "The messenger of Allah’s Apostle is present here and if he should get hold of you, he would chop off your neck." One day while he was using them (i.e. arrows of divination), Jarir stopped there and said to him, "Break them (i.e. the arrows) and testify that None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, or else I will chop off your neck." So the man broke those arrows and testified that none ahs the right to be worshipped except Allah. Bukhari vol.5 book 59 no.643 p.452

Bukhari vol.7 book 71 no.673 p.452-453. Footnote (1) says, "Medically it is well known now that a fly carries some pathagens on some parts of its body as mentioned by the Prophet (before 1400 years. approx. when the humans knew very little of modern medicine.) Similarly Allah created organisms and other mechanisms which kill these pathagens e.g. penicillin Fungus kills pathogenic organisms like Staphalococci and others etc. Recently experiments have been done under supervision which indicate that a fly carries the disease (pathagens) plus the antidote for those organ-isms. Ordinarily when a fly touches a liquid food it infects the liquid with its pathogens, so it must be dipped in order to release also the antidote for those pathogens to act as a counter balance to the pathogens. Regarding this subject I also wrote through a friend of mine to Dr. Muhammad M. El-SAMAHY chief of Hadith Dept. in Al-Azhar University CAIRO (Egypt) who has written an article upon this Hadith and as regards medical aspects he has mentioned that the microbiologists have proved that there are longitudinal yeast cells living as parasites inside the belly of the fly and these yeast cells in order to repeat their life-cycle protrude through respiratory tubules of the fly and if the fly is dipped in liquid, these cells burst in the fluid and the content of those cells is an antidote for the pathogens which the fly carries."

Mohammed was bewitched. Narrated ‘Aisha: The Prophet continued for such-and-such a period imagining that he has had sexual relation with his wife, and in fact he had not. One day he said, to me, "O ‘Aisha! Allah has instructed me regarding a matter about which I had asked Him. There came to me two men, one of them sat near my feet and the other near my head. The one near my feet, asked the one near my head (pointing at me), ‘What is wrong with this man?’ The latter replied, ‘He is under the effect of magic. The first one asked, ‘Who has worked magic on him?’ The other replied, ‘Lubaid bin A’sam." The first one asked, ‘What material (did use?).’ The other replied, ‘The skin of the pollen of a male date tree with a comb and the hair stuck to it, Kept under a stone in the well of Dharwan.’" Then the Prophet went to that well and said, "This is the same well which was shown to me in the dream. The tops of its datepalm trees look like the heads of the devils, and its water looks like the Henna infusion."…’Aisha added, "(The magician) Lubaid bin A’sam was a man from Bani Zuraiq, an ally of the Jews."

Adam (went and) said, 'As-Salamu alaikum (Peace be upon you).' They replied, 'As-Salamu-'Alaika wa Rahmatullah (Peace and Allah's Mercy be on you).' So they increased 'Wa Rahmatullah.'" The Prophet added, "So whoever will enter Paradise, will be of the shape and picture of Adam. Since then the creation of Adam's (offspring) (i.e. stature of human beings is being diminished continuously) to the present time." The footnote on p.160 says "‘His picture’ means that Adam has been bestowed with life, knowledge, power of hearing, seeing, understanding, etc., but the features etc. of Adam are different from that of Allah, only the names are the same, e.g., Allah has life and knowledge and power and understanding, and Adam also has that, but there is no comparison between the Creator and the created thing.

He then released me and again asked me to read, and I replied, ‘I do not know how to read,’ whereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and asked me again to read, but again I replied, ‘I do not know how to read (or, what shall I read?).’ Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me and then released me and said, ‘Read: In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists). Has created man from a clot. Read and Your Lord is Most Generous that which he know not." (96:1-5) Then Allah’s Apostle returned with the Inspiration, his neck muscles twitching with terror till he entered upon Khadija and said, ‘Cover me!

Attacks on unsuspecting, peaceful people: "Ibn ‘Aun reported : I wrote to Nafi’ inquiring from him whether it was necessary to extend (to the disbelievers) an invitation to accept (Islam) before engaging them in fight.

The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) made a raid upon Banu Mustaliq while they were unaware and their cattle were having a drink at the water. He killed those who fought and imprisoned others." Sahih Muslim vol.3 book 17 no.4292 p.942.

Then invite them to migrate from their lands to the land of Muhajirs and inform then that, if they do so, they shall have all the privileges and obligations of the Muhajirs. If they refuse to migrate, tell them that they will have the status of Bedouin Muslims and will be subjected to the commands of Allah like other Muslims, but they will not get any share from the spoils of war or Fai’ except when they actually fight with the Muslims (against the disbelievers). If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them."

Killing women and children of polytheists is OK in night raids Sahih Muslim vol.3 book 17 no.4321-4323 p.946-947 and footnote 2225 p.947

"Chapter DCCXII PERMISSIBILITY OF KILLING WOMEN AND CHILDREN IN THE NIGHT RAIDS, PROVIDED IT IS NOT DELIBERATE

(4321) It is reported on the authority of Sa’b bin Jathhama that the Prophet of Allah (may peace be upon him), when asked about the women and children of the polytheists being killed during the night raid, said: They are from them.(225)

(4322) It is narrated by Sa’b bin Jathhama that he said (to the Holy Prophet): Messenger of Allah, we kill the children of the polytheists during the night raids. He said: They are from them.

(4323) Sa’b bin Jathhama has narrated that the Prophet (may peace be upon him) asked: What about the children of polytheists killed by the cavalry during the night raid? He said : They are from them."

Footnote 2225 says "’They are from them’ does not mean that they are to be treated like the non-believing combatants and thus killed. What it means is that since the children and women of the unbelievers live in their houses and in case of the night raid it is difficult to distinguish them from the non-believing combatants, so there is every likelihood of their being killed though quite unintentionally. It should be clearly borne in mind that this is an exception rather than the rule. The explicit injunction of Islam is that women, children, the sick and the religious devotees are not to be killed. Only the combatants are to be killed."

They said : … He said to them (the same words) the third time (and on getting the same reply) he added : You should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle, and I wish that I should expel you from this land Those of you who have any property with them should sell it, otherwise, they should know that the earth belongs to Allah and His Apostle (and they may have to go away leaving everything behind.)"

It should, however, be borne in mind that this command does not imply that the Christians and the Jews should be forced to abandon streets and roads and thus walk by the side of the walls of houses or narrow paths. What this implies is that they should walk on the road away from the multitude of the Muslims, lest any harm should come to them."

Interpretation of "abandoning women" Sura 4:34 Abu Dawud vol.2 no.2140 p.575

Beating women: "Iyas bin ‘Abd Allah bin Abi Dhubab reported the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not beat Allah’s handmaidens, but when ‘Umar came to the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) and said: Women have become emboldened towards their husbands, he (the Prophet) gave permission to beat them. Then many women came round the family of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) complaining against their husbands. So the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) said : Many women have gone round Muhammad’s family complaining against their husbands. They are not the best among you.(1467)" Abu Dawud vol.2 no.2141 p.575

"This shows that wives should obey their husbands. In case they do not obey or become emboldened towards their husbands, they should try to amend them by preaching and education. Beating is the last resort. But it is better to avoid beating as far as possible." Abu Dawud vol.2 footnote 1467 p.575.

"’Umar bin al-Khattab reported the Prophet (may peace be upon him) as saying: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.(1468)" Abu Dawud vol.2 no.2142 p.575

"This means that a man tries his best to correct his wife, but he fails to do so, he is allowed to beat her as a last resort. This tradition never means that a husband should heat her [his] wife without any valid reason. If he beats her without any fault on her part, he will be responsible and called to answer." Abu Dawud vol.2 footnote 1468 p.375

Sex with captives: "Abu Sai’d al-Khudri said : The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent a military expedition to Awtas on the occasion of the battle of Hunain. They met their enemy and fought with them. They defeated them and took them captives. Some of the Companions of the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) were reluctant to have intercourse with the female captives in the presence of their husbands who were unbelievers. So Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur’anic verse: (Sura 4:24) "And all married women (are forbidden) unto you save those (captives) whom your right hands possess." That is to say, they are lawful for them when they complete their waiting period.(1479)" Abu Dawud vol.2 no.2150 p.577

"After the distribution of the spoils of war a man may have intercourse with the female slave after passing one menstrual period, if she is not pregnant. If she is pregnant one should wait till she delivers the child. This is the view held by Malik, al-Shafi’i and Abu Thawr. Abu Hanifah holds that if both the husband and wife are captivated together, their marriage tie still continues; they will not be separated. According to the majority of scholars, they will be separated. Al-Awza-i maintains that their marriage tie will continue till they remain part of the spoils of war. If a man buys them, he may separate them if he desires, and cohabit with the female slave after one menstrual period. (‘Awn al-Ma’bud II.213)" Note that Mohammed married Safiyah right after the battle. Abu Dawud vol.2 footnote 1479 p.577-578.

The Prophet (may peace be upon him) called on Thabit bin Qais and said (to him): Take a part of her property and separate yourself from her. He asked: Is that right, Apostle of Allah? He said: Yes. He said: I have given her two gardens of min as a dower, and they are already in her possession. The Prophet (may peace be upon him) said: Take them and separate yourself from her." Note that the man got his gardens back after beating his wife and breaking part of her. Abu Dawud vol.2 no.2220 p.600

Definition of Jihad. "Literally jihad means to struggle, to make strenuous effort and to strive hard. In the Islamic context, it stands for fighting against the infidels to promote the cause of Islam.

This may be fighting in the battlefield, teaching in schools, making public speeches and producing literature on Islam. Although formally it is not included in the five pillars (arkan) of Islam, it is of vital importance as a fundamental doctrine of religion.

An Index of Ibn-i-Majah

 

Sunan Ibn-i-Majah by Imam Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Yazid Ibn-i-Majah al-Qazwini. Translated by Muhammad Tufail Ansari Kazi Publications 121-Zutgarnain Chambers, Ganpat Road, Lahore, Pakistan. Worldwide Copyright 1993 Zaki Publications Lahore Pakistan. They also have a web site www.kazi.org

Ibn Maja/Majah (824-886/887 A.D. 273 A.H.) collected 4,341 hadiths. His collection is not considered as authoritative as the first four. He quotes weak hadiths, but that is OK since he labels them as such. Compared to Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, Ibn-i-Majah is much more "polished". For example, he specifically has Mohammed directly say the Murji’a and Qadarites are not a part of Islam; though those sects did not exist during Mohammed’s lifetime. (vol.1 no.62)

In the English translation of the text of Ibn-i-Majah are numerous comments on the soundness of each saying from the book al-Zawa’id. It compares with sayings in Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud, Nas’ai, and occasionally an-Nawawi. A number of saying are said to be "daif" (weak) or have other deficiencies. Except where noted, this list is only the sayings considered sound.

A woman said she gave herself to Mohammed as a wife. Mohammed did not accept her, but gave her to a poor Muslim. The only thing the poor Muslim could give as a dowry is his memorization of a sura of the Qur’an. Muwatta’ Malik 28.3.8

Malik thought that women should not be married for less than one dinar, which is the lowest amount for which cutting off a hand for stealing is the punishment. Muwatta’ Malik 2.3.11

If a man marries a woman on the condition that he will not marry or take a concubine, the condition means nothing unless there is an oath of divorce or setting-free attached to it. Then it is obliged on him. Muwatta’ Malik 28.6.16

Rifaa ibn Simwal divorced his wife Tamima (irrevocably, 3 times) and she married another who could not consummate the married. Later Rifaa want to marry her again, but Mohammed said Rifaa could not until Tamima consummated a marriage with someone else. Muwatta’ Malik 28.7.17

A’isha said that Mohammed said a man and women could not remarry after an irrevocably divorce until the woman had consummated a marriage with someone else. Muwatta’ Malik 28.7.17 Yahyah related that Malik said similar. Muwatta’ Malik 28.7.19

Said ibn al-Musayyab said it is forbidden for a man to have intercourse with a female slave who is carrying another man’s child. Muwatta’ Malik 28.21.

Malik said that a free man must not marry a slave-girl when he can afford to marry a free-woman, and even when he cannot, he should not marry a slave-girl unless he fears fornication. Muwatta’ Malik 28.12.29

A man who had sex with a slave-girl he owned could not also have sex with her sister, until the first slave-girl was made unlawful for him, either by marriage to someone else, setting her free, etc. Muwatta’ Malik 28.14.35

"Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that Umar ibn al-Khattab [caliph] gave his son a slave-girl and said, ‘Do not touch her, for I have uncovered her." Muwatta’ Malik 28.15.36

"Yahya related to me from Malik from Yahya ibn Said that Abu Nahshal ibn al-Aswad said to al-Qasim ibn Muhammad, ‘I saw a slave-girl of mine uncovered in the moonlight, and so I sat on her as a man sits on a woman. She said that she was menstruating, so I stood up and have not gone near her after that. Can I give her to my son to have intercourse with?’ Al-Qasim forbade that. Muwatta’ Malik 28.15.37

"Malik said, ‘In our opinion, Allah made marriage to believing [Muslim] slave-girls halah [lawful], and He did not make halal marriage to Christian and Jewish slave-girls from the People of the Book." Muwatta’ Malik 28.16.38a [However, Mohammed had a Christian Coptic slave girl named Mary/Mariam.]

Mohammed forbade temporary marriage at Khaybar [Khaibar]. Muwatta’ Malik 28.18.41

Rabia ibn Umayya had a temporary marriage, and the woman got pregnant by him. [Caliph] ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab went out in dismay saying, "This temporary marriage had I come across it, I would have ordered stoning and done away with it!" Muwatta’ Malik 28.18.42

Yahya related to me from Malik from Zayd ibn Aslam that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, ‘When you marry a woman or buy a slave-girl, take her by the forelock and ask for Baraka [blessing]. When you buy a camel, take the top of its hump, and seek refuge with Allah from Shaytan." Muwatta’ Malik 28.22.52

Divorce: Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that a man came to Abdullah ibn Umar, and said, ‘Abu Abd ar-Rahman! I placed the command of my wife in her hand, and she divorced herself, what do you think?’ Abdullah ibn Umar said, ‘I think that it is as she said.’ The man said, ‘Don’t do it, Abu Abd ar-Rahman"’ Ibn Umar said, ‘You did it, it has nothing to do with me.’" Muwatta’ Malik 29.2.10

A slave-girl, married to a slave was set free, and asked Hafsa, wife of Mohammed for advice. Hafsa said she preferred the freed girl not do anything, but told her that if her husband has not had intercourse with her since she was freed, she was free to divorce him. But if that was not the case, then she has no authority at all. Muwatta’ Malik 29.9.27

If a woman does not know where her husband is for four years, and then does idda [waits] for four months [more], she is free to marry. Muwatta’ Malik 29.19.62

Abu Said al-Khudri asked Mohammed about coitus interruptus on the expedition to the Banu Mustaliq. Mohammed said they did not have to do that, because no soul will come into existence unless Allah has decreed it. Muwatta’ Malik 29.32.95

Abu Ayyubal-Ansari practiced coitus interruptus. Muwatta’ Malik 29.32.97

Abdullah ibn Umar did not practice coitus interruptus and thought it disapproved. Muwatta’ Malik 29.32.98

Ibn Fahd asked Zayd ibn Thabit [Abu Said] about coitus interruptus with slave girls. None of his wives were more pleasing to him than some of his slave girls, but none of his slave girls pleased him so much that he wanted a child by them. He was told coitus interruptus was fine. Muwatta’ Malik 29.32.99

Ibn Abbas was asked about coitus interruptus and said to ask his own slave girl. She was embarrassed, so he said it is fine; he does it himself. Muwatta’ Malik 29.32.100

"Mali said, ‘A man does not practice coitus interruptus with a free woman unless she gives her permission. There is no harm in practicing coitus interruptus with a slave-girl without her permission. Someone who has someone else’s slave-girl as a wife, does not practice coitus interruptus with her unless her people give him permission. Muwatta’ Malik 29.29.32.100

"An umm walad does not have to mourn when her master dies, and a slave-girl does not have to mourn when her master dies. Mourning is for those with husbands." Muwatta’ Malik 29.33.108

"Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Safiyya bint Abi Ubayd told him that Hafsa, umm al-muminin, sent Asim ibn Abdullah ibn Sad to her sister Fatima bint Umar ibn al-Khattab for her to suckle him ten times so that he could come in to see her. She did it, so he used to come in to see her." Muwatta’ Malik 30.1.8. However 30.1.6 and 30.1.10, 30.1.11, 30.2.14 say that it does not count after two years.

Sahla bint Suhayl asked Mohammed about Salim, whom they thought of as a son and comes in to see her when she is uncovered; they only had one room. So Mohammed said to give him five drinks of her milk, and then it is fine. None of Mohammed’s wives would do this though, because they thought it was an indulgence for Sahla alone, and not for others. Muwatta’ Malik 30.2.12

A man would go and have intercourse with his slave-girl and is wife went and suckled her. Afterwards his wife warned her he could no longer do that because of what she did. So the man went to ‘Umar, and ‘Umar told him to beat his wife and go to his slave-girl, because suckling only applied to the young. Muwatta’ Malik 30.2.13

Change in the Qur’an: "Yahya related to me from Malik from Abdullah ibn Abi Bakr ibn Hazm from Amra bint Abd ar-Rahman that A’isha, the wife of the Prophet [Mohammed],… said, ‘Amongst what was sent down of the Qur’an was ‘ten known sucklings make haram’ – then it was abrogated by ‘five known sucklings’. When the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, died, it was what is now recited of the Qur’an.’" A man would go and have intercourse with his slave-girl and is wife went and suckled her. Afterwards his wife warned her he could no longer do that because of what she did. So the man went to ‘Umar, and ‘Umar told him to beat his wife and go to his slave-girl, because suckling only applied to the young. Muwatta’ Malik 30.3.17

There was nothing wrong with bartering an Arabic-speaking slave for two black slaves or any other type of slaves that were not as good. But if there is no appreciable different between slaves, two should not be bartered for one with a stated delay in terms even if they are of different races. Muwatta’ Malik 31.1.1

Slaves have a "warranty period" of three days. Muwatta’ Malik 31.3.3

Abdullah ibn Masud bought a slave girl from his wife on the condition that she could buy the girl back for the same price. Umar said not to go near her [sexually] while anyone has a condition on her over you. Muwatta’ Malik 31.5.5

"Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi that Abdullah ibn Umar would say, ‘A man should not have intercourse with a slave girl except one whom, if he wished, he could sell, if he wished, he could give away, if he wished, he could keep if he wished, he could do with her what he wanted." Muwatta’ Malik 31.5.6

It is fine to borrow an animal and returning them or their like value. However, it is not fine to borrow a female slave, have sex with her, and then return her. Muwatta’ Malik 31.43.95

"Yahya said that Malik spoke about an investor who made a qirad loan to a man, who used it and made a profit. Then the man bought with all the profit a slave-girl and he had intercourse with her and she became pregnant by him, and so the capital decreased. Malik said, ‘If he as money, the price of the slave-girl is taken from his property, and the capital is restored by it. If there is something left over after the money is paid, it is divided between them according to the first qirad. If he cannot pay it, the slave-girl is sold so that the capital is restored from her price." Muwatta’ Malik 32.7.9

Caliph ‘Umar judged between a Muslim and a Jew and decided in favor of the Jew. The Jews said to him, "By Allah! You have judged correctly." ‘Umar struck the Jew with a whip and asked how he could be sure. The Jew said that for a judge who judges correctly there is an angel on his right and on his left. When the judge leaves the truth, the angels leave him. Muwatta’ Malik 36.1.2

Malik gives an example of a man who marries a slave girl. Then the master of the slave girl, plus a man plus two women testify that the man plus another person have bought the slave girl for a certain amount. Then the husband and slave girl have to separate because of their testimony. Muwatta’ Malik 36.4.14? [If the owner of a slave girl only has partial ownership, then he cannot have relations with her per Muwatta Malik 31.5.6.]

The testimony of women is not accepted in divorce (Muwatta Malik 36.4.14?), hadd punishments (Muwatta Malik 36.4.15?), and the witnesses of two men are equal to one man and two women Muwatta Malik 36.4.17?)

The testimony of children is only accepted for injuries done between them, and only if they have not left the scene, and perhaps been deceived or instructed. Muwatta Malik 36.7.9

If a man rapes a free woman, he must pay the bride price and the hadd punishment is inflicted on him. If he rapes a slave, then he must pay the value by which he was diminished her monetary worth, and then the hadd punishment is inflicted on him. Muwatta Malik 36.16.14

If someone changes their religion out of Islam, "strike his neck!" [i.e. kill him]. Muwatta Malik 36.18.15 The Muwatta Malik does not view this as applying to someone who converts from Judaism to Christianity or vice versa, only for those who leave Islam. Muwatta Malik 36.18.15. However, if a man leaves Islam they should first imprison him for three days, give him a loaf of bread per day, and call him to return to Islam. Muwatta Malik 36.18.16

Caliph ‘Umar complained, "What’s the matter with men who have intercourse with their slave-girls and then dismiss them? No slave-girl comes to me whose master confesses that he has had intercourse with her but that I connect her child to him, whether or not he has practiced coitus interruptus or stopped having intercourse with her." Muwatta Malik 36.23.24

When a thief steals and is caught, whether or not his hand is cut off depends on the value of the goods on the day he stole them, not the value at a future time. Muwatta Malik 37.7.6a

If a slave girl gives birth to a child by her master, the master cannot sell her or give her away. When he dies she is free. Muwatta Malik 38.5.6

A slave girl came to ‘Umar after she had been beaten by her master with a red hot iron, so ‘Umar set her free. Muwatta Malik 38.5.7

Hilal ibn Usama went to Mohammed when he had to free a slave girl. Mohammed questioned the girl to see if she was a Muslim. She said she believed Mohammed was the Messenger of Allah, so Mohammed said to free her. Muwatta Malik 38.6.8. Muwatta Malik 38.6.9 is a similar story except with the added details that the master was one of the Ansar and the woman was a black slave. It is likely the same incident.

In feeding poor people for kaffara, "One must only feed Muslims and one does not feed anyone outside of the deen [community of faith] of Islam." Muwatta Malik 38.8.12?

Abdullah ibn Umar made two of his slave girls mudabarra (freed clients) and he had intercourse with them while they were mudabarra. Muwatta Malik 40.3.3

The Jews came to Mohammed and said a Jewish man and woman committed adultery. Mohammed asked what their Torah said. The Jews said they should be flogged. Mohammed said they lied and the Torah said they were to be stoned, so he had them stoned. Muwatta Malik 40.7.8

A man’s (presumably unmarried) son committed adultery with his boss’s wife. Mohammed ordered that the son be stoned and exiled for a year. If the wife confessed, she was to be stoned. Muwatta Malik 41.1.6

A male slave in charge of other slaves forced a slave girl to have intercourse with him. The man was flogged and banished. The slave girl was not flogged, because she was forced. Muwatta Malik 41.3.15

If a man has a partner [wife] and has sex with a slave girl then the hadd punishment is NOT inflicted on the man, and the child is connected to him. The man has to give the owners of the slave girl the estimated value and the slave girl is his. Muwatta Malik 41.6.19a

For stealing a hand is not cut off for fruit hanging from a tree or a sheep in the field. It is cut off for stealing the values of dried fruit, or the price of a shield (three dirhams). Muwatta Malik 41.6.20-23

A thief’s hand is cut off for a quarter of a dirham and more. Muwatta Malik 41.7.25

A female slave’s hand is cut off for stealing, just like anybody else. Muwatta Malik after 41.10.31

Malik said about an adult and a child when they murder a man together. ‘The adult is killed and the child pays half the full blood-money.’ Malik said, ‘It is like that with a freeman and a slave when they murder a slave. The slave is killed and the freeman pays half of his value.’" Muwatta Malik 43.3.3

Mohammed said that if a fetus was killed in its mother’s womb the one who killed it had to give as compensation a slave or slave-girl of fair complexion. Muwatta Malik 43.7.6

A slave of fair complexion is estimated at 50 dinars or 600 dirhams. The blood money of a free Muslim woman is 500 dinars or 6,000 dirhams (ten times as much). Muwatta Malik 43.7.8

If a pregnant woman murders someone, she is not punished until the baby is born. If a pregnant woman is killed, blood money is only required for the woman, not the fetus. (There is uncertainty about that though.) Muwatta Malik 43.7.13

"Yahya … from Malik from Muhammad ibn Abd ar-Rahman …that he heard that Hafsa … killed one of her slave-girls who had used sorcery against her. She was a mudabbara. Hafsa gave the order, and she was killed." Muwatta Malik 43.19.14.

"As for a man who strikes his wife with a rope or a whip and hits what he did not mean to hit [such as hurting an eye, ear, etc.] or does what he did not intend to do, he pays blood-money for what he has struck according to this principle, and retaliation is not inflicted on him." However, it then says that if a man did it intentionally, then retaliation is inflicted on him. Muwatta’ Malik 43.23.18

There is no dispute that women do not swear; women have no right to swear for blood or to pardon in murder. Muwatta’ Malik 44.2.2a

Slaves are not automatically punished with execution for murder of a slave or cutting off a hand or foot for other crimes. Instead, the master of the murdered slave has a choice. He can have the slave executed, accept blood money, or take ownership of the slave. Muwatta’ Malik 44.2.9

Umar ibn Abd al-Aziz [not the caliph] said one of the last things the prophet said was "May Allah fight the Jews and Christians. They took the graves of their Prophets as places of prostration. Two deens [religious communities] shall not co-exist in the land of the Arabs." Muwatta’ Malik 45.5.17

Jews and Christians: Ibn Shihab says the Mohammed said, "Two deens shall not co-exist in the Arabian Peninsula." Muwatta’ Malik 44.5.18

‘Umar ibn al-Khattab [the caliph] searched for information until he was absolutely convinced that Mohammed said, "Two deens shall not co-exist in the Arabian Peninsula.,’ and he therefore expelled the Jews from Khaybar." Muwatta’ Malik 44.5.18

‘Umar ibn-al-Khattab expelled the Jews from Najran [in Yemen], and Fadak [30 miles from Medina]. When the Jews of Khaybar left, they did not take nay fruit or land. The Jews of Fadak took half the fruit and land, because Mohammed made a settlement with them for that. Muwatta’ Malik 44.5.19

During the time of caliph ‘Umar a plague broke out in Ash Sham. Muwatta’ Malik 45.7.22 and 44.7.24

Malik disapproved of youths wearing any gold because he heard Mohammed forbade gold rings. He also disapproved of men wearing safflower [yellow] in their houses or courtyards. He did not know that it was haram [forbidden] but he preferred other garments. Muwatta’ Malik 48.2.3

Women who are naked even though they wear clothes [i.e. immodestly dressed] , go astray and make others go astray. "and they will not enter the Garden [of Paradise] and they will not find its scent, and its scent is experienced from as far as the distance traveled in five hundred years." Muwatta’ Malik 48.4.7

Superstition: When putting on sandals, the right foot is to be put in first, and the last taken out. Muwatta’ Malik 48.7.15

Only someone going to hell would wear a particular silk robe, and Mohammed gave it to ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab. ‘Umar was hurt, and Mohammed said he did not give it to ‘Umar to wear. So ‘Umar gave it to his brother who was still an idolator. Muwatta’ Malik 48.8.18

Mohammed was neither very tall nor very short. He was not pallid or dark. He did not have curly or lank hair. He became a prophet at 40, and died when he was 60. He did not have 20 white hairs in his hair or beard. [Of course not if he dyed them red.] Muwatta’ Malik 49.1.1

Jesus had a dark, handsome man with excellent hair reaching to his shoulders. The dajjal (Anti-Christ had wiry hair and blind in his right eye, as if it was a floating grape. Muwatta’ Malik 49.2.2

Superstition: Eat and drink with your right hand, because Satan eats and drinks with his left hand. Muwatta’ Malik 49.4.6

Superstition: "A person who drinks from a silver vessel brings the fire of Jahannam into his belly." Muwatta’ Malik 49.7.11

Superstition: Do not let a necklace remain unbroken on the neck of a camel. Malik though it was because of the evil eye. Muwatta’ Malik 49.12.39

Superstition: Mohammed said that the evil eye was true. Muwatta’ Malik 50.1.1

Mohammed agreed that incantations of the Qur’an would ward off the evil eye. Muwatta’ Malik 50.2.3; 50.2.4

Mohammed warned against women wearing wigs. He said the Israelites were destroyed when their women started to use hairpieces. Muwatta’ Malik 51.1.2

Superstition: On the Night Journey an evil Jinn was seeking Mohammed with a torch of fire. Jibril [Gabriel] taught him the special words to say to put out the evil genie’s torch. Muwatta’ Malik 51.4.10 51.4.11-13 also gives magical words to say to prevent scorpion sting and other things.

Gambling: Some people were staying in a room in A’isha’s house had some dice. She sent a message to them that if they do not remove the dice, she will remove them from her house. Muwatta’ Malik 52.2.6

Gambling: When Abdullah ibn Umar found one of his family playing dice, he beat him and destroyed the dice. Muwatta’ Malik 52.2.7

Malik disapproved of chess and other worthless games. Muwatta’ Malik 52.2.8

Abu Said related that Mohammed informed them that angels do not enter a house which contains images or pictures. He was not sure whether Mohammed said "images" or else "pictures". Muwatta’ Malik 54.3.6

Sahl ibn Hunayf agreed with Abu Talha that they could not have pictures, but Sahl said there was an exception for markings on a garment. Muwatta’ Malik 54.3.7

Mohammed once was unhappy with A’isha for having a cushion in her house with pictures on it. Mohammed said angels do not enter a house with pictures. Muwatta’ Malik 54.3.8

Mainuma bint al-Harith had a slave girl. She asked Mohammed if she could free her, and Mohammed said instead to give her to Maimuna’s sister to take care of her. Muwatta’ Malik 54.4.9

Superstition: "Malik related to me that he heard that Umar ibn al-Khattab wanted to go to Iraq, and Kabal-Ahbar said to him, ‘Do not go there, amir al-muminim. There is nine-tenths of sorcery there and it is the place of the rebellious jinn and the disease which the doctors are unable to cure.’" Muwatta’ Malik 54.11.30

Superstition: A warrior fighting in the Battle of the Ditch (al-Kandaq) asked Mohammed’s permission to return home. When he did, he found his wife standing outside, and he was about to stab here because of jealousy. She said not to be hasty until he saw what was in the house. He went inside and found a snake coiled on his bed. He pierced the snake with his spear, and both he and the snake died. Malik said that there were jinn in Medina who became Muslim. When you see one, call out to it for three days. If it appears after then, then kill it, for it is a shaytan [Satan]. Interestingly, people can kill evil genies [Shaytans]. Muwatta’ Malik 54.12.33

Mohammed said that backbiting is mentioning something about a man he does not want to hear, even if it is true. If it is false, then it is called slander. Muwatta’ Malik 56.4.10

A man asked Mohammed if he could lie to his wife, and Mohammed said there is no good in lying. Muwatta’ Malik 56.7.15

Abdullah ibn Mas’ud said "You must tell the truth. Truthfulness leads to right action. Right action leads to the Garden. Beware of lying. Lying leads to corruption, and corruption leads to the Fire." Muwatta’ Malik 56.7.16

Abu Hureira said that Mohammed said that "One of the most evil of people is the two-faced person who shows one face to these people and another face to those people." Muwatta’ Malik 56.8.21

An Index of al-Tabari

 

The History of al-Tabari : An Annotated Translation. Ehsan Yar-Shater, General Editor. State University of New York Press 1989-.

According to the preface, the History of al-Tabari, who lived from 839-923 A.D. "is by common consent the most important universal history produced in the world of Islam." Tabari’s title is ta’rikh al-rusul wa’l-muluk, which means the history of prophets and kings. These 38 volumes tells facts and legends of the history of the world from Adam and Eve down to 915 A.D.

Background: Tabari was his nickname, since he came from Tabaristan, which is in Iran, south of Tehran. While some Hanbalites have accused him of having Shi’ite tendencies, there is no basis for that except that he was Iranian. Tabari’s credibility as a historian would be rather high, if it were not for these first three volumes. He appears to be so much into factual detail that where there is none he readily makes it up, or repeats what others have made up without any qualifications. Do we really know the names of Adam and Eve’s daughters? Do we really know that Eve always had twins? Do we really know that Eve was pregnant with Cain and his twin before being expelled from the Garden?

Interpretation and translation of Sura 2:117 al-Tabari vol.1 p.225-226

I asked the Messenger of God [Mohammed]" Where does it [the sun] set? He replied: It sets in the heaven and is then raised from heaven to heaven until it is raised to the highest, seventh heaven. Eventually, when it is underneath the Throne, it falls down and prostrates itself, and the angels who are in charge of it prostrate themselves together with it. The sun then says, My Lord, whence do you command me to rise, from where I set or from where I rise? He continue. This is (meant by) God’s word: ‘And the sun: It runs to a place where it is to reside (at night)’ where it is held underneath the Throne – ‘That is decreed by One Mighty and Knowing’ by ‘this’ is meant the procedure of the mighty’ Lord in His royal authority, the Lord Who is ‘knowing’ about His creation. He continued. Gabriel brings to the sun a garment of luminosity from the light of the Throne, according to the measure of the hours of the day. It is longer in the summer and shorter in the winter, and of intermediate length in the autumn and spring. [spring, fall, and winter fashions!] He continued. The sun puts on that garment, as one of you here puts on his garment. Then, it is set free to roam in the air of heaven until it rises whence it does. … The same course is followed by the moon in its rising … But Gabriel brings it a garment from the light of the Footstool. This is (meant by) God word ‘He made the sun a luminosity and the moon a light.’" al-Tabari vol.1 p.231

Where the sun sets in heaven, and then rises to the seventh heaven. al-Tabari vol.1 p.231,232

"God created an ocean three fasrakhs (18 kilometers) removed from heaven. Waves contained, it stands in the air by the command of God. No drop of it is spilled. All the oceans are motionless, but that ocean flows at the rate of the speed of an arrow. It is set free to move in the air evenly, as if it were a rope stretched out in the area between east and west. The sun, the moon, and the retrograde stars [5 planets] run in its deep swell. This is (meant by) God’s word: ‘Each swims in a sphere.’ ‘The sphere’ is the circulation of the chariot in the deep swell of that ocean." al-Tabari vol.1 p.235

Tabari knew of five planets. al-Tabari vol.1 p.235

The Prophet [Mohammed] replied: ‘Ali, they are five stars: Jupiter (al-birjis), Saturn (zuhal), Mercury (utarid), Mars (Bahram), and Venus (al-zuhrah). These five stars rise and run like the sun and the moon and race with them together. All the other stars are suspended from heaven as lamps are from mosques,…" al-Tabari vol.1 p.235-236

Science, The origin of eclipses: "He [Mohammed] continued. When the sun rises, it rises upon its chariot from one of those springs accompanied by 360 angels…. When God wishes to test the sun and the moon, showing His servants a sign and thereby asking them to stop disobeying Him and to start to obey, the sun tumbles from the chariot and falls into the deep of that ocean, which is the sphere. When God wants to increase the significance of the sign and frighten His servants severely, all of the sun falls, and nothing of it remains upon the chariot. That is a total eclipse of the sun, when the day darkens and the stars come out." al-Tabari vol.1 p.236

Jesus will speak in childhood and maturity. Sura 3:46

Sura 3:48 says, "And Allah will teach him [Jesus] the book and Wisdom, the Torah, and the Gospel." Jesus was sent "confirming the Torah that had come before him" in Sura 5:46. For a Muslim to deny this would be to deny the Qur’an itself.

While the Qur’anic commentator Abdullah Yusuf Ali tries to say the Biblical Gospel today is not the Injil (Gospel) meant in the Qur’an, the Qur’anic commentator Fazlur Rahman contradicts him. Jesus was taught the Gospel according to Sura 3:48, and Christians are the people of the Gospel in Sura 5:46. Finally, ‘Aisha contradicts Yusuf Ali in Bukhari vol.4 no.605 and Sahih Muslim vol.1 no.301 p.98, where she tells that Khadija took Mohammed to a Christian convert who used to read the Gospels in Arabic.

A living bird out of clay was a sign from the Lord. Sura 3:49

The people were supposed to obey Jesus. Sura 3:50

Jesus attested to the Law before him, and made lawful some things that were not lawful. Sura 3:50

The disciples followed Jesus (excepting Judas) and said they were Muslims. Sura 3:52-53; 61:14

Allah is the best of schemers/deceivers. Sura 3:54

Allah raised Jesus up, unto Himself according to Sura 3:55; 4:158. Abdullah Yusuf Ali says there is some difference of opinion on this, but the generally accepted view is that Jesus ascended into Heaven. Certainly that fits Muslim theology more than Jesus was raised from the dead.

Jesus was a type of Adam. Sura 3:59

The Qur’an is disputing with the people of the Book. Sura 3:63-75

"Say: O People of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves Lords and patrons other than Allah." Sura 3:64

God gave the prophets a Book and wisdom. Sura 3:81

Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Jacob, Moses, Jesus, and the prophets were from Allah. Sura 3:84

"Behold! Allah took the covenant of the prophets, Saying ‘I give you a book and wisdom: then comes to you a messenger, confirming what is with you; do ye believe in him and render, him help.’ Allah said: ‘Do ye agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on you?’ They said: ‘We agree.’ He said: ‘Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.’" Sura 3.81.

All food was lawful to the Children of Israel, except what they themselves made unlawful, before the Law of Moses was revealed. Sura 3:93

The first house of worship was Bekka [The Ka’ba] Sura 3:96

All the People of the Book are not the same. Some rehearse the signs of God all night long. Sura 3:113

Take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks. Sura 3:118

God helped them at Badr. Sura 3:123

"Fear the fire, which is prepared for those who reject the faith." Sura 3:131

No one can forgive sins except God. Sura 3:135

Gardens of God. Sura 3:136, 185, 198

No soul can die except by Allah’s leave. The day is fixed as if by writing. Sura 3:145

God is full of grace to those who believe. Sura 3:152

Whatever someone covetously withheld will be tied to their necks like a twisted collar. Sura 3:180

Jews and Christians were to make God’s word known to all mankind -Sura 3:187

"Then if they reject thee, So were rejected messengers before thee, who came with clear signs, and the scriptures and the book of enlightenment." The footnote says that scriptures (zubur) may refer to all of the Bible or just Psalms. Sura 3:184

"And remember Allah took a Covenant from the people of the book, to make it known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it; but they threw it away behind their backs, and purchased with it some miserable gain! And vile was the bargain they made!" in Sura 3:187. While this Sura criticizes some who were called people of the book, it does not in any way criticize the book God gave mankind.

Context of Sura 3:186. It was given right before ordering the assassination of Ka’b bin al-Ashraf. Abu Dawud 2:2994 footnote 2419 p.850

Sura 4:3 says men may have at most four wives, except that in Sura 33:50 Mohammed had an exception for himself.

Command to marry 2, 3, or 4 women does not explicitly state no more, though it is universally understood that way. Sura 4:3

Male gets same inheritance as two females. Sura 4:11

If a wife dies, the husband gets half of it. However, if there is at least one child, the husband gets 1/4. If a husband dies, the wife gets 1/4. However, if there is a child, the wife gets only 1/8. Sura 4:12

Mention of Gardens of Paradise. Sura 4:13,57

If a woman is guilty of lewdness, she should be confined to their houses until death. Sura 4:15

Homosexuality: If two men are guilty of lewdness, punish the both. But if the repent and amend, leave them both. Sura 4:16

Cannot inherit women against their will. (Probably does not refer to slaves) Sura 4:19

Prohibited marriages. Sura 4:22-23

"Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess…." Sura 4:24. (A. Yusuf ‘Ali’s translation)

Sura 4:25 "If any of you have not the means wherewith to wed free believing women, They may wed believing Girls from among those Whom your right hands possess…"

Sura 4:34 says women whom the husband fears disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them, refuse their beds, and beat/scourge them. The Arabic word "beat" or "scourge" does not mean tap lightly; it is the same word used to beat a violent criminal or a camel. Mohammed himself once deliberately struck ‘Aisha "on the chest which caused me pain", according to Sahih Muslim vol.2 book 4 no.2127 p.462. If a husband is remiss, the Qur’an never says the wife is to have her husband beaten.

You must wash before prayer. However, if you returned from a call of nature, or have been in contact with women, and there is no water, you can just use clean sand or earth. Sura 4:34

"O ye People of the Book! Believe in what We have (now) revealed, confirming what was already with you, before We change the face and fame of some (of you) beyond all recognition,..." Sura 4:47.

Mohammed alleged the Qur’an confirmed what they already had. -Sura 4:47

Changes: The Jews were supposed to keep the Sabbath. Sura 4:47

Those who reject Our [Allah’s] Signs, We shall soon cast into the Fire as often as their skins are roasted through, Allah shall give them new skins for more punishment. Sura 4:56

Use of Our and We (2 times) for Allah. This is called the "royal we" and does not mean Allah was a plurality. Sura 4:56

Fighting for Allah. Sura 4:74-78

"Wherever ye are, death will find you out, even if ye are in towers built up strong and high!" Sura 4:78

"Do they not ponder on the Qur’an? Had it been from other Than Allah, they would surely Have found therein Much discrepancy." Sura 4:82

Return a courteous greeting courteously. Sura 4:86

Slay apostates/renegades from Islam. Sura 4:89

Take not as friends those who reject the faith. Sura 4:89

A believer should never kill a Believer, but if it happens, one should free a [Muslim] believing slave and pay compensation. Sura 4:92

If a man kills a believer intentionally he will abide in Hell (forever). Sura 4:93

Allah does not forgive the sin of joining other gods with Him, but He forgives as He pleases other sins that things. Sura 4:116

"(The pagans), leaving Him, call but upon female deities: they call but upon Satan the persistent rebel!" Sura 4:117

God took Abraham as a friend. Sura 4:125

To God belongs all things in the heavens and the earth. Sura 4:126,131

Do not take as friends Unbelievers rather than believers. Sura 4:144

Sura 4:150-151 "Those who deny Allah and his messengers, and wish to separate between Allah and his messengers, Saying: ‘We believe in some but reject others’: and wish to take a course midway, (151) They are in truth unbelievers;..."

Changes: The Jews were not to transgress the Sabbath. Sura 4:154

"That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Apostle of God"; but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so if was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts with no certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not - Nay, God raised him up unto Himself; and God is Exalted in Power, Wise -" Sura 4:157-158

All the people of the Book must believe in him before his death. On the Day of Judgment Jesus will be a witness against them.

Mention of inspiration given to Noah, Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, the Tribes, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David we gave the Psalms. Sura 4:163

Eternal: "Those who reject the faith and do wrong - God will not forgive them nor guide them to any way - Except the way of Hell, to dwell therein forever: and this to God is easy." Sura 4:168-169

"O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of God aught but truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an Apostle of God, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in God and His Apostles. Say not "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: for God is One God: Glory be to Him: (for Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is God as a disposer of affairs." Sura 4:171

Mistranslation: Yusuf ‘Ali has "Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which he bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him:...". It really says, "the messenger" not "a messenger". The Arabic is "Innamâ al-masîhu `îsâ bnu maryam rasûlu llâhi wa kalimatuhu alqâhâ ilâ
maryama wa rûhun minhu" A messenger would be "rasûlun li-llâhi", and the messenger is "rasûlu llâhi"). Ditto for "the word of Him" instead of "a word of Him" "Rasuwluhi is "his messenger".

Christ did not disdain to worship God. Sura 4:172

Inheritance rules. If a man dies with only a sister, the sister gets half of his inheritance. If a woman dies leaving only a brother, the brother shall get all of her inheritance. If there is a mixture of surviving brothers and sisters, the males get twice as much. Sura 4:176

Muslims are not to eat dead meat, blood, flesh of swine, or food which the name of another god has been invoked on it. But, if anyone is forced from hunger, with no inclination of transgression, Allah is merciful. Sura 5:3

God bestowed His grace. Sura 5:23

One of the sons of Adam murdered the other. Sura 5:27-30

The punishment of those who wage war against God and His Apostle [Mohammed] is execution or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land - except for those who repent before they fall into your power. Sura 5:33-34

Eternal: "Their wish will be to get out of the Fire, but never will they get out. their penalty will be one that endures." Sura 5:37

Cut off the hands of a male or female thief. Sura 5:38

The Jews are men who will listen to any lie. Sura 5:41

The Jews will devour anything forbidden. Sura 5:42

We [Allah] revealed the law (to Moses); therein was guidance and Light Sura 5:45

We [Allah] ordained therein for them [the Israelites] ‘Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal.’" Sura 5:45

Sura 5:46 - "And in their [the prophets’] footsteps we sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Torah that had come before him: we sent him the gospel; therein was guidance and light. And confirmation of the Torah that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allah" Now this verse of the Qur’an is quite remarkable. If God sent Jesus to confirm the Torah (first five books of the Bible’s Old Testament), then at least in Jesus’ time, the Torah that people could read and Jesus could confirm was the same Torah God sent.

Sura 5:47 goes on to say "Let the People of the Gospel Judge by what Allah hath revealed Therein...." If the People of the Gospel are to judge by what God has revealed in the Gospel, then how can the Gospel they are to judge by not be the Gospel God told them to judge by?

Sura 5:48 says, "To thee (People of the Book) We [Allah] sent the scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allah hath revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the truth that hath come to thee....". If you are a Muslim who disagrees with these words, then how does Allah differentiate between His words, which He allows devout worshippers to learn only in corrupted form, and His words that remain uncorrupted?

Sura 5:49 also says to judge by the scriptures.

No friends: "O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily God guides not a people unjust." Sura 5:51

Allah transformed some into apes and swine (pigs). Sura 5:60

While the Qur’an says Jews and Christians were hypocrites (Sura 5:61-63) who perverted what they heard (Sura 2:75), the Qur’an never says every copy of God’s scriptures were corrupted. As a matter of fact, Christians are called the people of the Gospel in Sura 5:46. Since Sura 5:47 says, "Let the People of the Gospel Judge by what Allah hath revealed Therein...." it acknowledges that the gospels, at least in Mohammed’s time, contained the truth. Mohammed was read the gospels in Arabic according to his wife ‘Aisha in Bukhari vol.4 no.605.

The Qur’an says some people of the Book were hypocrites (Sura 5:61-63) and perverted what they heard. However, it never said that God’s word, given to the people of the Book, was changed. God has the power to give His word, and God has the power to guard His word in safety from corruption.

People who says God is one of three in a Trinity blaspheme God. Sura 5:73

"Christ the son of Mary was no more than an Apostle; many were the Apostles that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth." Sura 5:75

"Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say ‘We are Christians’: because amongst these are men devoted to learning. And men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant." Sura 5:82. The footnote says this does not refer to everyone who calls himself a Christian, but sincere Christians.

Mention of Gardens of bliss. Sura 5:85

"O ye who believe! Intoxicants and gambling, (dedication of) stones, and (divination by) arrows, are an abomination, of Satan’s handiwork: eschew such (abomination), that ye may prosper. Sura 5:90

Some people lost faith on account of asking questions. Sura 5:102

Jesus spoke to the people in childhood and maturity. Sura 5:110

All strengthened Jesus with the holy spirit. Sura 5:110

"Behold, I [Allah] taught thee [Jesus] the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel." Sura 5:110

Jesus made a clay bird that miraculously came to life. Sura 5:110

Allah inspired the disciples to have faith in Allah and his apostle [Jesus]. Sura 5:111

Allah sent down to Jesus’ disciples a table from heaven set with food. Sura 5:111-115

"And behold! Allah will say: ‘O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, ‘Take me and my mother For two gods beside Allah’’?…" Sura 5:116 People reading this could get the impression that the Trinity includes Mary, but the Trinity is no such thing. People could also get the mistaken impression that the Trinity teaches three separate gods, but the Trinity teaches no such thing either. Rather Jesus was one of the three Persons of the Trinity of God, but not a separate God.

"And behold! God will say ‘O Jesus the son of Mary! Didst thou say unto men, ‘Worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of God’? He will say: ‘Glory to Three! Never could I say what I had no right (to say). Had I said such a thing, Thou wouldst indeed have known it. Thou knowest what is in my heart, though I know not what is in Thine." Sura 5:116.

Sura 18:85-86 states that a ruler called Zul-Qarnain, followed the setting sun and found that it went down into the waters of a muddy spring. Now we know the sun does not go down into a muddy spring. Some Muslims say the man to which Mohammed referred was Alexander the Great; others guess the Persian Cyrus I; and still others say a Yemeni king. Regardless, the sun does not actually go down into water, and it does not even appear to go down into muddy water, as the deep sea is not muddy.

Zakariya (Zechariah) and his barren wife had a son Yahya (John). Sura 19:4-15

John the Baptist had purity too. Sura 19:13

Jesus was born of the virgin Mary. Sura 19:16-27

The same Mary (Mariam in Hebrew and Arabic) was not the mother of Jesus and the sister of Moses (~1450 BC.) as Sura 19:28 says. In the context of the virgin birth of Christ, Sura 19:28 says "O sister of Aaron! Thy father was not a man of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!" How could somebody mix these up?

Sura 19:28: The Christians of Najran brought up that Mary the mother of Jesus could not be the sister of Aaron, brother of Moses, since Moses lived long before Jesus. Mohammed answered this by saying people used to name their children after apostles and pious persons who had gone before them. Sahih Muslim vol.3 book 23 no.5236 and footnote 2530 p.1169

Sura 19:28 A Muslim commentator remarks that this was because Mary and her cousin Elisabeth came from a priestly family and were thus sisters of their ancestor Aaron. However, Mary came from Judah, not Aaron, and it was Mary that was addressed here. So if the All-Knowing God did not err here, then who did?

If someone brings a charge against a woman and does not have four witnesses, they should be flogged with 80 stripes. Sura 24:4

If one does not produce four witnesses for a charge against a woman, then in the sight of Allah he is a liar. Sura 24:13. This is curious. A person is not a truthteller or a liar based on his honesty or if it actually occurred, but only if he has four witnesses. It is sort of like saying if a court has not determined you are guilty, then you are innocent, even if you really committed the

Those who slander chaste but indiscreet women are cursed in the afterlife and suffer a grievous penalty [Hell]. Sura 24:23

Note how modesty of a woman’s chest and veil coincide. Believing women … should draw veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers or their brother’s sons, or their sisters’ son, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, …." Sura 24:31. Since it is not OK to be half-unclothed in front of male relatives, this is specifying they must have veils to all but their extended family and women in general.

Mohammed fell in love with Zaynab of Jashsh, the wife of Zaid his adopted son. So Mohammed asked him to divorce her so he could marry her. After Zaid refused, why did Allah command Zaid to divorce her? Here is the quote in the Sura 33:36-38. "It is not for any believer, man or woman, when God and His Messenger have decreed a matter, to have the choice in the affair. Whosoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has gone astray into manifest error. When you said to him whom Allah had blessed and you had favoured, ‘Keep your wife to yourself, and fear Allah,’ and you were concealing within yourself what Allah should reveal, fearing other men; and Allah has better right for you to fear him. So when Zaid had accomplished what he would of her, then We gave her in marriage to you, so that there should not be any fault in the believers, touching the wives of their adopted sons, when they have accomplished what they would of them; and Allah’s commandment must be performed. There is no fault in the prophet, touching what Allah had ordained for him." Some skeptics might think this only was done to satisfy Mohammed’s earthly lust, and with no other reasons, Mohammed must have made up this vision himself. A Muslim might say that it was Allah, not Mohammed who gave this command. For what possible reason would Allah command this divorce so that Mohammed could have yet another wife? Sura 4:3 says a man could have at most four wives, but Sura 33:50 says this rule for others did not apply to Mohammed.

Slaying God’s prophets: Evil men "deny the Signs of Allah, and in defiance Of right, slay the prophets, And slay those who teach Jesus dealing with mankind,…" Sura 3:21.

It is interesting to read how Allah could have what are called "abrogated verses" in Suras 13:39; 16:101; 2:106.

How could Haman, the Persian minister in Esther’s time (500 B.C.) actually work in Egypt in Moses’ time (1450 B.C.) building the Tower of Babel (before 2500 B.C.) as Suras 27:4-6, 28:38, 29:39, 40:23-24,36-37 indicate? This is another "Mohammed and French-Canadians" problem again.

Even today, there are differences in Arabic versions of the Qur’an. For example, in Answering Islam p.193 point out some Arabic discrepancies: Sura 28:48 [sahirani/sihrani], Sura 32:6 [ummahatuhum/ummahatuhum wa hyua abun lahum] Sura 34:18 [rabbana ba’id/rabuna ba’ada], Sura 38:22 [tis’un/tis’atun]. Sura 19:35 [tantaruna/yamtaruna]. See W. St. Clair-Tisdell A Manual of the Leading Muhammedan Objections to Christianity (London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1904 p.60.). There are also significant differences between the ‘Uthman’s Qur’an and the Qur’an used today. Why the changes, and when will they change it back?

Allah claimed to be the same God as Christians and Jews (do not dispute except in the best way) - Sura 29:46

"Happy is my head: and with loud shout, I speak; Saying: ‘Life’s breeze from the cup I seek.’ On the face of wine sickness, sitteth not the sullenness of austerity. The disciple of the khirka, dreg-drinker, pleasant of disposition, I am. … Wine, bring that, by Hafiz decision, down from the pure heart, Hypocrisy’s dust, with the goblet’s grace, I may wash." (Divan of Hafez p.399.

The Essential Rumi p.283 says that the Sufi poet Sanai’s style impressed Rumi. Sanai said that dirty jokes can be instructional.

Supposedly the dervish Shams met Rumi and asked who was greater, the Sufi Bestami who said "How great is my glory", or Mohammed who acknowledged "We do not know You as we should." Eventually Rumi said it was Mohammed because while Bestami had taken one gulp of the divine, for Mohammed the way was always unfolding. (from The Essential Rumi p.xi-xii)

"Don’t hand me another glass of wine. Pour it in my mouth. I've lost the way to my mouth." (The Essential Rumi p.6)

"In the slaughterhouse of love, they kill only the best, none of the weak or deformed. Don’t run away from this dying. Whoever’s not killed for love is dead meat." (Furuzanfar’s edition of Kulliyat-e Shams #543 taken from The Essential Rumi p.270)

The lion killed the wolf because the wolf was wrong to think in terms of I and we in the presence of the lion. The lion spared the fox, because, learning from the wolf, the fox gave all three dead animals of prey to the lion. The lion also gave all three animals to the fox.

A dervish knocked at a house to ask for a piece of dry bread, or moist, it didn’t matter.

"This is not a bakery," said the owner.

"Might you have a bit of gristle then?"

"Does this look like a butcher shop?"

"A little flour?"

"Do you hear a grinding stone?"

"Some water?"

"This is not a well."

Whatever the dervish asked for, the man made some tired joke and refused to give him anything.

Finally the dervish ran in the house, lifted up his robe, and squatted as though to [use the bathroom]

"Hey, hey!"

"Quiet, you sad man. A deserted place is a fine spot to relieve oneself, and since there’s no living thing here, or means of living, it needs fertilizing."

(The Essential Rumi p.116-117 from The Mathnawi vol.6 no.1250-1257)

"’Ali was told a secret doctrine by Mohammed and told not to tell it, so he whispered it down the mouth of a well. Sometimes there’s no one to talk to. You must just set out on your own." (The Mathnawi vol.4 no.275-486, taken from The Essential Rumi p.195)

Rumi’s book The Mathnawi vol.5 no.2831-4034 tells a long and bawdy story of the caliph (king) of Egypt sending an army of thousands to besiege Mosul, all for a physically attractive concubine. The king of Mosul finally gives her up saying, "The idol belongs with the idolator." The victorious captain sees her and is overcome with lust. He tears off her pants, but just as he is about to have sex, he hears a noise of a black lion among the horses. He runs off naked with his sword, kills the lion, and then returns to have sex with the woman. When they eventually return to the caliph of Egypt, he falls madly in love with the girl, but as he is about to have sex with her, a tiny sound from God and he loses desire. The girl laughs loudly at him, and when he gets angry, tells him about her and the captain. The caliph finally gives her to the captain. "This is the virility of a prophet. The Caliph was sexually impotent, but his manliness was most powerful." (The Essential Rumi p.54-61)

A man’s jealous wife sent her appealing maidservant back home to fetch a silver washbasin. Afterward the wife realized what she did and rand home too. The maid ran home quickly to finally have an affair with the woman’s husband. The wife ran home out of jealousy. "The maid ran for love. The wife ran out of fear and jealousy. There is a great difference. The mystic flies moment to moment. The fearful ascetic drags along month to month." (The Essential Rumi p.178-179. In this parable the maid is the good mystic, the wife the fearful ascetic, and the husband is God. It goes on to give all the (x-rated) details of the wife catching the two just after the act. Remember, this is supposed to be teaching to lead you to God. (The Essential Rumi p.178-180 in The Mathnawi vol.5 no.2163-2204,2210.)

Apparently the most disgusting story in Rumi is the story of a maidservant who trained a donkey "to perform the services of a man" She carved part of a gourd to use since the donkey’s anatomy was larger. Her mistress secretly saw this one time, and decided to try it herself. She did not know about the gourd flange though, and the donkey punctured her intestines and she died. The point is that we are supposed to remember her as an image of immoderation, and keep our balance, presumably as the maidservant did. So apparently the maidservant having sex with an animal with a gourd is a shining example for Sufis of how to live a life in moderation. If you are a non-Muslim are totally shocked by this degrading analogy of Allah, realize that most Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims would be equally shocked. This gross story of God in Sufism is in The Mathnawi vol.5 no.1333-1405 and can be read (that is if you really want to read it) in The Essential Rumi p.181-182)

There can be Sufi hypocrites too. They are similar to a man who hears a wolf pass gas when another kills it at night and swears it was his donkey because he know how his donkey passes gas. (The Essential Rumi p.213 The Mathnawi vol.3 no.650-702)

"One day a sufi sees an empty food sack hanging on a nail. He begins to turn and tear his shirt, saying, Ford for what needs no food! A cure for hunger! His burning grows and others join him, shouting and moaning in the love-fire. An idle passerby comments, ‘It’s only an empty sack.’ The sufi says, ‘leave. You want what we do not want. You are not a lover. A lover’s food is the love of bread, not the bread. No only who really loves, loves existence.’" (The Mathnawi vol.3 no.3014-3030 taken from The Essential Rumi p.29)

"A disciple of Jalal suggested she [herself] make a pilgrimage to Mecca. She thought that was good; but went to ask her master first. He said that was good. That midnight he was praying, he fell into ecstasy and asked her to join him on the roof. They beheld the sacred black stone of Mecca whirling in the air. Then she learned that Jalal was her Mecca, and she did not need to go anywhere else." (taken from Rumi in the Arms of the Beloved p.193-194)

"the way you make love is the way God will be with you. So these two were lost in their sexual trance. They did not care anymore about feasting or wine. Their eyes were closed like perfectly matching calligraphy lines. The king went looking for the scholar, and when he saw them there coupled, commented, Well, as it is said, ‘A good king must serve his subjects from his own table!’ There is a joy, a winelike freedom that dissolves the mind and restores the spirit,…" (The Mathnawi vol.6 no.3914-3979 taken from The Essential Rumi p.185)

"There is an animal called an ushghur, a porcupine. If you hit it with a stick, it extends its quills and get bigger. The soul is a porcupine, made strong by stick-beating." (The Mathnawi vol.4 no.74-109 taken from The Essential Rumi p.176)

"There are thousands of wines that can take over our minds. Don’t think all ecstasies are the same!" (The Mathnawi vol.4 no.2683-2696 taken from Essential Rumi p.6)

"Listen to the poet Sanai, who lived secluded: ‘don’t wander out on the road in your ecstasy. Sleep in the tavern.’ When a drunk strays out to the street, children make fun of him…. The children follow, not knowing the taste of wine, or how his drunkenness feels. All people on the plane are children, except for a very few. No one is grown up except those free of desire." (The Mathnawi vol.1 no.3426-3454 taken from The Essential Rumi p.4)

"No more wine for me! I’m past delighting in the thick red and the clear white. I’m thirsty for my own blood as it moves into a field of action. Draw the keenest blade you have and strike, until the head circles about the body. Make a mountain of skulls like that. Split me apart. Don’t stop at the mouth! Don’t listen to anything I say. I must enter the center of the fire. Fire is my child but I must be consumed and become fire." (The Mathnawi vol.1 no.2981-3021 taken from Essential Rumi p.63) Mohammed also spoke a lot about fire, but Mohammed said to avoid the fire.

"Hallaj said, I am God, and lived it out." (The Mathnawi vol.6 no.2019-2190 taken from The Essential Rumi p.219)

"The Granary" is a story of Rumi’s about a sufi who wandered the world on his donkey. One time when he stayed with a community of sufis, and left his donkey with a servant. The other sufis had a great celebration in his honor. He was happy until it was time to leave, and he learned that they paid for the celebration by selling his donkey. He said he was only imitating their joy. To really have their joy he would have to stay with them as friends. (The Mathnawi 2:156-193 taken from The Essential Rumi p.250-251)

"Mystics are experts in laziness. They rely on it, because they continuously see God working all around them. The harvest keeps coming in, yet they never even did the plowing!" (The Mathnawi vol.6 no.4876-4916 taken from The Essential Rumi p.30)
