“So I fabricated these Ahaadeeth for them…”

It was narrated to us on the authority of Mu-mal that he said: “A Shaykh narrated a Hadeeth to me on the virtues of the Qur-aan, chapter by chapter.”

So I asked him: “Who narrated this Hadeeth to you?”

He said: “A man in Madaa-in narrated it to me, he is alive.”

I traveled to him and asked him: “Who narrated this Hadeeth to you?”

He said: “A Shaykh in Waasit narrated it to me, he is alive.”

So I travelled to him, he said: “A Shaykh in Basrah narrated it to me.”

So I travelled to him, he said: “A Shaykh in Ba’badaan narrated it to me.”

So I travelled to him, he took me by the hand into a house, a group of Sufees were in it, with them was a Shaykh, he [the person who took my hand] said: “It is this Shaykh that narrated it to me.” I said: “O Shaykh, who narrated this Hadeeth to you?”

He responded: “Nobody narrated it to me, but I saw that the people were not interested in the Qur-aan, so I fabricated these Ahaadeeth for them so that it may turn their hearts to the Qur-aan.” [Al ‘Iraaqee in ‘The Explanation of Muqadimat ibn as Salaah’]

[Al ‘Allaamah ‘Abdur Rahmaan al Mu’alimee comments:] This man [i.e. the traveler] must have travelled for about three months in order to verify this one Hadeeth. [‘The knowledge of the Narrators and its Importance.]

Al Bukhaaree narrated in ‘At Taareekh al Awsat’ on the authority of ‘Umar ibn Subh ibn ‘Imraan at Tameemee who said: “I fabricated a Hadeeth on the Khutbah of the Prophet – صلى الله عليه وسلم.”

Just as Maysarah ibn ‘Abd Rabihi al Faarisee admitted that he fabricated some Ahaadeeth on the virtues of the Qur-aan, and that he fabricated seventy Ahadeeth on the virtues of ‘Alee.

And just as Abu ‘Ismah Nooh ibn Abee Maryam who is known as ‘Nooh al Jaami’’ admitted that he fabricated some Ahaadeeth on the virtues of the Qur-aan, chapter by chapter, on the authority of ibn ‘Abbaas. [The Causes for Fabrication and the Categories of Fabricators]

[As Suyootee in ‘Tadreeb ar Rawee’ comments on a fabricated Hadeeth stating:] “This Hadeeth cannot be fabricated by a Muslim, the person accused of fabricating it is Muhammad ibn Shajjaa’, he was deviant in his religion…”

Shu’bah said concerning him: “I saw him, if he was given a Dirham he would fabricate fifty Ahaadeeth.”

‘Abdullaah ibn Yazeed al Muqree said: “A man from the people of innovations repented from his innovation, he then started saying; ‘Look at who you take Hadeeth from, for indeed if we had an opinion, we would turn it into a Hadeeth.’”

Abu al ‘Abbaas al Qurtubee, the author of ‘al Mufhim Sharh Saheeh Muslim’ stated: “Some of the Fuqahaa of the people of desires permitted that if a ruling is derived from a clear analogy, then it is permissible to attribute it to the Messenger – صلى الله عليه وسلم – verbally saying; the Messenger of Allaah said …!!”

Al Haafidh Abu Ya’laa al Khaleelee stated in ‘Al Irshaad’; “The Raafidah fabricated Ahaadeeth on the virtues of ‘Alee and Ahlul Bayt, about three hundred thousand Ahaadeeth.”

Ibn al Qayyim comments in ‘Al Manaar al Muneef’: “Do not think this is farfetched, for if you research what they have from fabricated Ahaadeeth you would find that it is as he stated.”

[Translators note:] Look, may Allaah preserve you, at the efforts extended by Ahlul Hadeeth in preserving the Sunnah for the Ummah of Muhammad – صلى الله عليه و سلم – in what state would we be in were it not for such efforts. Compare this to the efforts of Ahlut Tasawuf, the Shee’ah and the rest of the people of innovations in fabricating Ahaadeeth into the Sunnah and what state we would be in had the affair been entrusted or left to them.
