For example, Aisha R mentions being jealous of Khadijah R , Muhammad S s late wife Umar R was forever meddling in the affairs of Muhammad S s household and ordering his wives about Ali R failed to lend Aisha R his support when she was unjustly accused of infidelity, and she never forgave him for that Umar R wasn t a big fan of Aisha R and would tell his daughter Hafsah not to be led astray by Aisha R in the ancient Arabic colloquialism equivalent to because she thinks she s all that Fascinating, and humanizing I do take one issue with this compilation I reject the accounts that are blatantly anti woman Note not ALL the anti women narrations Just theextreme ones I refuse to believe that women are, by their nature, as a matter of creation, deficient in intelligence and religion because that was how we were made If that were true, then women shouldn t be responsible for anything bad that they do they simply can t help it, either due to a defect of religion or intelligence And if it were true, I have a hard time seeing how that is reconciled with the fact that women were given the ability and temperament and yes, gasp, intelligence to raise children I have a very, very difficult time believing that Muhammad S , a man who stood for social justice above all else, would degrade women that way and claim that it was just how they were made Gee, if that were at all true, what would be the point of even being born a woman under Islam So yeah, I call shenanigans Allahu Alim, but I still call shenanigans It ll be interesting to me to see how Bukhari collection differs from the Sahih Muslim I m sure most of it will bet there will be some things in the Bukhari that weren t there in Muslim, and some things in the Muslim collection not there in the Bukhari.
All Muslim Scholars Are Agreed That Sahih Al Bukhari Is The Most Authentic And Reliable Book After The Book Of AllahSahih Al Bukhari Was Compiled By Abu Abdullah Muhammad Bin Isma Il Bin Al Mughirah Al Bukhari Imam Bukhari Collected The Ahaadeeth Over A Period OfYears He Stated That Before Writing Any Hadith In This Book, He Performed Salat Of Istikhaara Offered Two Rak At Prayer For Guidance From Allah , And When He Was Sure Of Its Authenticity, He Included That Hadith In His SahihThere AreAhaadeeth In This Great Collection Consisting OfVolumes Each Book Subtopics In Each Volume Categorized By Very Broad Topics Such As The Book Of As Salat Contains Many Chapters Which Represent One Logical Unit Of Ahaadeeth Each Book Contains Anywhere From One ToChapters With Each Chapter Containing Several AhaadeethDr Muhammad Muhsin Khan Translated This Book In Simple And Easy Language Tremendous Amounts Of Errors Exist In The Translations By Other Translators To Eliminate The Problem Dar Us Salam Spent OverYears In The Publication Of This Book And Presented A Book Which Is Translated Into English In A Very Easy Simple Language, So That All Readers Can Understand It Without Difficulty We Wish That All The Peoples Of The World, And The Muslims In Particular, Implement The Teachings Of The Prophet Muhammadsallallahu Alaihi Wasallamin Their Daily Life The choice to repeat hadiths seems to have been driven by the need to categorise the Hadith but it would have beenefficiently done by offering a category index and by only repeating a Hadith, where there was a significant difference of detail The numbering system isn t very helpful, though inrecent versions a unique number is given to each Hadith making searching easier That is the reason for the three stars.
The question of the veracity of the Hadith is an issue for believing Muslims rather than bemused reviewers However, I couldn t help but notice that the fasting Muhammad was fat according to one Hadith He was also unusually paranoid about keyhole spies, threatening to gouge their eyes out with arrowheads It begs the question what has Al Amin the honest one got to hide The Hadith couldn t decide whether Muhammad was a dwarf or of average height Surely, both claims can t be true sahih Muhammad s misogyny was on full display women got stoned for adultery, whereas he could rape his female slaves Is it only adultery if the other person is consenting His racism was also evident, especially towards Ethiopians not only was there a prohibition of killing animals with implements that Ethiopians used, but Ethiopian slaves are referred to as raisin heads Mohammad purported to be starting a non pagan religion, but the evidence of the Hadith contradicts that It is clear that he took a pagan god Al Lah and discontinued the other pagan gods of Al Lat etc All of the key prayers are an assertion of that Interestingly, by including himself repeatedly as Allah s apostle and slave, he has raised himself to that of Allah s helper, indeed he even gives himself the Divine prerogative of judgement on the Day of the Resurrection Muslims have kept quiet on that one But apart from placing himself on the altar of worship with Allah, the most obvious signs of this being a pagan religion with a monotheism makeover is the high prevalence of superstitious practices You can t eat two dates in company Allah is one and likes odd numbers You must spit three times but on your left, never on your right You mustn t go to the toilet facing or with ones back to the Kaba There were hundreds of these superstitions If you think of throwing salt over your shoulder, that is pretty much the sort of thing required of Muhammad s followers under pain of going to the hell fire for example, soiling yourself with urine is punishable with hell fire His superstition was downright dangerous too as he offered medical advice based on these silly notions, for example, drinking camel urine was suggested as a cure for a host of illnesses and those who realised it was fake suffered the most horrific murder as reported many times their eyes branded, their limbs cut off and left to die of thirst in the desert sun One of the Hadith s virtues is that it told mostly the unpolished truth about the founder from his marriage to a 6 year old to his approval of sex slaves The Hadith is a long hard read but it opens your eyes to the truth of a fanatical tyrant.
I will write my comment after read Thanks Finally, I have in my possession the complete 9 volumes of the sayings and traditions of the Prophet Muhammad pbuh collected by Imam Al Bukhari Regarded as the second most important book in Islam after the Quran Even so it is incomplete It was virtually impossible to record everything the Prophet said and did in his lifetime but what we have in Bukhari s tome is nonetheless worth its weight in gold.
A The whole 9 volumes of al Bukhari s collection of hadith, held to be the most authoritative by Sunni Muslims.
you cant understand Islam without Sahih Bukhari Bukhari wrote at a time when the Shi ites and Sunnis joined in rejecting the Abbasid leadership and abandoned the Gospel and the Torah see The Great Leap Fraud Social Economics of Religious Terrorism for details It must be read in that light As had the Christians before them, the Muslims now rejected everything that the Jews and Christians had done previously For everything they did, an alternative ritual and behavior had to be found in order to make sure that the Muslims could build their own distinct identity their Jewish past was buried From the Sunni point of view, Bukhari s traditions would be the most authentic of the thousands of sayings fathered upon Muhammad For the modern reader, they are an impenetrable and repetitive maze of useless gibberish containing only the occasional hint of the intention and meaning of the sayings Yet, when one views the writings as being under the impression of the ninth century, the Bukhari script turns into an invaluable fountain of information The Islamic scholar Malik ibn Anas had provided the foundation for the writings of Bukhari, who completed his collection of Mohammad s traditions between the year 864 and 870 He seems to have taken the extensive Shi ite collections and pretended to confirm their authenticity This must have been a difficult task, if not impossible Bukhari attempted to ask great grandsons of direct witnesses about what may have happened two hundred years earlier To be sure, we are not talking about historical events that changed the world, but nitty gritty details very close to the daily struggle of ordinary people Thus, the value of those traditions in their historicity is limited Because no federal or provincial code of law had been established in either Damascus or Baghdad and no edicts had been issued by the caliphs, it seems that local authorities were referred to for case by case decisions within a moral framework, which must have been any combination of the Torah, the Zabur, the Gospel, and the Koran As for the gibberish, the text regulates everything from how to pray to how to spit One of the interesting aspects in the study of Bukhari is his technique of suggestion He leaves out details, emphasizes arguments differently, and buries critical passages in repetitious sayings and lengthy excurses to nowhere He frequently withholds information about time and places, not disclosing whether the recounted occurred in a dream or reality, keeping important details close to the chest, misplacing quote marks, putting sayings in deliberate chronological disorder, and breaking sayings into pieces that make little sense in their fragments It makes for such an extraordinarily hard read that it could not amount to a commoner s bedtime lecture Bukhari s school of thought was that the Shi ite recordings were inventions of the time and that Bukhari s uniquely Ghassanid Sunni collection was the only correct one The parts that stood the test of authenticitythan two hundred years after Muhammad s death were, conveniently, those that fit Bukhari s ideals They were authenticated because he wanted them authenticated The text is exhaustive and overwhelming overwhelmingly ridiculous, that is Unfortunately, for the student of Sunni Islam, no path can evade Bukhari A.
