  3. Salam aleykoum brother Abu Rahma , I wanted to ask you if Sunan Abu Dawood 4361 where a Blind man kills his concubine is authentic ?

    • Wa’alaykumusSalaam wr wb, the Hadith is authentic and I will write on it soon iA. You will see a new article on it instead of a comment here. I cannot promise when but it is on my next to-do list.

  4. So I know that islam allows slavery, but I had a question about it. I heard from people who speak against islam that islam allows men to rape their female slaves or concubines. Could you please educate me on the matter?

  5. Salam aleykoum brother, I’m confused regarding this Hadith:

    Sunan Abi Dawud 2050
    Narrated Ma’qil ibn Yasar:

    A man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said: I have found a woman of rank and beauty, but she does not give birth to children. Should I marry her? He said: No. He came again to him, but he prohibited him. He came to him third time, and he (the Prophet) said: Marry women who are loving and very prolific, for I shall outnumber the peoples by you.

    I’ve seen people saying that marrying Barren Women is makhroo based on this Hadith . But doesn’t it contradict the Sunnah where the Prophet ﷺ didn’t have any Children from his wives except Khadidja and he advised to marry the religious women ?
    So I just wanted to ask you if it is true that marrying barren Women is makhroo .
    May Allah bless you .

    • Wa’alaykumusSalaam wr wb, makrooh is something that is not liked or is not the ideal thing and hence, if a man marries a woman knowing that she cannot conceive, he will develop ill feelings later on when he desires children and so to avoid problems later on, it is best not to delve into it. Something that is not ideal is *not necessarily a sin*.

  6. as-salāmu ’alaikum wa rahmat Allāhi wa barakātuhu

    I have many article-suggestions for you:) and they will also make fun cause these are things which do not exist in english language i.e. there is no refutation on these topics:

    – did the Qur’an plagiarize from the gospel of thomas? This claim originated from W. Atallah

    See footnotes 16-17

    – meaning of „MARROW OF THE LEG-BONES CAN BE SEEN“ from hur al-any? Many islamophobes cite this hadīth and make fun of it… they say “how can this be attractive for a man?”

    – claim that Abu Hurayrah was a hypocrite because he only followed the prophet for food.

    “I used to accompany Allah’s Apostle to fill my stomach”

    – did Holy Prophet Muhammad (š-Allāh-’aws) plagiarize from gospel of Bartholomew?

    Then follows a series of hymns sung in heaven, eight in all, which accompany the reception of Adam and the other holy souls into glory. Adam was eighty cubits high and Eve fifty. They were brought to the Father by Michael. Bartholomew had never seen anything to compare with the beauty and Glory of Adam, save that of Jesus. Adam was forgiven, and all the angels and saints rejoiced and saluted him, and departed each to their place.

    – the reason why the prophet did this (this is also a hadīth which they cite for laughing):

    Just choose the topics u want or none of them:) thank you for your excellent work, I really appreciate it 😊

  7. Salam aleykoum brother Abu Rahma , I wanted to ask you if it’s true that Imam Malik called Ibn Ishaq a liar in “Uyun al-athar, I, 16-7” ?

    • Wa’alaykumusSalaam wr wb, Ibn Sayyid al-Nas discusses criticism on Ibn Ishaq in the beginning of his book and defends him. Criticism he responds to includes Imam Malik’s harsh comment on those lines.

  8. Hey brother, I have a personal question I hope you don’t mind me asking you. Which madhab do you adhere to?

    • I don’t mind at all. Theologically I am Athari and in my writings I use all the schools to develop articles to clarify matters. Hanafis and Malikis are the most lenient in matters pertaining to non-Muslims so they save the day mostly lol. In my personal life, I follow the prevalent one of the land but don’t call myself as anything. I reside in UAE and they are officially Maliki 🙂 In my daily life I don’t come across areas of differences and I won’t ever need to divorce, Insha’Allah, so won’t come across differences in other matters too hopefully. In simpler terms, I ask a scholar with easiest access to me and follow the opinion and don’t delve into issues too deep and prefer focusing on making my ibadaat as good as I can.

  9. Salamaleikom First of all i want to thank you for the time you take the answer and May God bless you the new question i have Is about the hadith when were they available for people i mean the First Time because for example i couldnt find a sahih bukhari manuscript dating in the time of bukhari himself except a couple After him by century more or less so when were hadith canonized Sorry for the mistakes and the second Is about yajuj and majuj i read in your article that the Wall crumble might be Just happening at the same Moment of the yajuj and majuj invasion but if so whats point of mentioning the Wall fall if It has nothing ti do with the yajuj majuj Attack

    • Wa’alaykumusSalaam wr wb, thank you for the kind words. May Allah bless you.

      1) For the Sahih Bukhari question, I suggest this article: Hadiths were recorded even during the life of the Prophet (s) and many Sahaba had written words from him. Later on, and way well before Imam Bukhari, there were many books of Hadith but these were like private collections. What the Hadith scholars like Imam Bukhari, Imam Muslim and others did was to compile them together instead of being scattered around as private collections.

      2) I believe that the wall has crumbled. Their initial attack was in the form of Mongol invasions and after Eisa (a.s.) comes, other groups of Yajuj and Majuj (Chinese) will attack. This is my view and I am open to being corrected and Allah knows best.

  10. Salam aleykoum brother , I wanted to ask you what are your thoughts of this Thread in Twitter by this Quranist ?

  11. Assalam U Alykum Brother. I hope all is well with you and you family during these times first and foremost. I was recently talking to a Christian on a YouTube comments section and he brought up the Hadith about the Prophet cursing the Jews and Christians for taking their Prophet’s grave as a place of worship. He raised two points. The first was when historically did the Christians and Jews take their Prophet’s grave as a place of worship. The other point was that he claimed that we as Muslims are cursed because well we have a masjid near the Prophet’s grave. I was just wondering if you could address these two points. Assalam U Alykum.

    • Wa’alayumusSalaam wr wb,

      The first question is very easy. Look at the Churches and tombs made on the burying places:

      The Prophet (s) was buried in his home and the Masjid was separate from it. Eventually the community expanded so much that the Masjid expanded as well to incorporate them and hence, the grave came inside the limits of the Masjid. The intention was/is not to take his burial place as a place of worship. Making a tomb on someone’s grave and then making it a place of worship is a separate matter and worthy of condemnation.
