Removing the Doubts : Did Abu Hurairah ( R.a ) Took knowledge from Shaitaan??????


doubhts-pakka

Friends some Hizbi People  Saying Even If he is A  Mubtadi ( Biddati ) iN DEEN  We can take ILM From them as“Take the Good and leave the bad”, and in support of their claim, allege that Abu Hurairah took knowledge from Shaitaan. This principle has already been tackled and refuted by the scholars the purpose now is to analyze their evidence which they bring to support their principle.

Their Daleel is this  Hadeeth:

Narrated Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه: Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم deputed me to keep Sadaqaat (al-Fitr) of Ramadan. A comer (man) came and started taking handfuls of the foodstuff (of the Sadaqah) (stealthily). I took hold of him and said: “By Allaah, I will take you to Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم.” He said: “I am needy and have many dependents, and I am in great need.” I released him, and in the morning Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم asked me: “What did your prisoner do yesterday?” I said: “O Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم! The person complained of being needy and of having many dependents, so, I pitied him and let him go.” Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Indeed, he told you a lie and he will be coming again.” I believed that he would show up again as Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم had told me that he would return. So, I waited for him watchfully. When he (showed up and) started stealing handfuls of foodstuff, I caught hold of him again and said: “I will definitely take you to Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم. He said: “Leave me, for I am very needy and have many dependents. I promise I will not come back again.” I pitied him and let him go.

In the morning Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم asked me: “What did your prisoner do?” I replied: “O Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم! He complained of his great need and of too many dependents, so I took pity on him and set him free.” Allaah’s Apostle said: “Verily, he told you a lie and he will return.” I waited for him attentively for the third time, and when he (came and) started stealing handfuls of the foodstuff, I caught hold of him and said: “I will surely take you to Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم as it is the third time you promise not to return, yet you broke your promise and came.” He said: “(Forgive me and) I will teach you some words with which Allaah will benefit you.” I asked: “What are they?” He replied: “Whenever you go to bed, recite “Aayat-al-Kursee”– ‘Allaahu laa ilaaha illaa huwa-l-Haiy-ul Qaiyoom’ till you finish the whole verse. (If you do so), Allaah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you and no Shaitaan will come near you till morning.” So I released him. In the morning, Allaah’s Apostle asked: “What did your prisoner do yesterday?” I replied: “He claimed that he would teach me some words by which Allaah will benefit me, so I let him go.” Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم asked: “What are they?” I replied: “He said to me, ‘Whenever you go to bed, recite Aayat-al-Kursee from the beginning to the end —- Allaahu laa ilaaha illaa huwa-l-Haiy-ul-Qaiyoom—-.’ He further said to me, ‘(If you do so), Allaah will appoint a guard for you who will stay with you, and no Shaitaan will come near you till morning.’ (A sub-narrator) added that they (the companions) were very keen to do good deeds. The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “He really spoke the truth, although he is an absolute liar. Do you know whom you were talking to, these three nights, O Abu Hurairah?” Abu Hurairah said: “No.” He صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “It was Satan.” [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (2311, 5010)]

Let we know

—>> Benefits: Here are some of the obvious facts which are overlooked in this Hadeeth:

1. Identity:

  1. a) Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه did not know the real identity of this person.
  2. b) The incident happened while Abu Hurairah was unaware of who the person was.
  3. c) He only came to know about him at the end, only when the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم informed him.
  4. d) It is not like he willingly took his knowledge from Shaitaan.
  5. e) So bringing this Hadeeth to support the principle of “taking the good and leaving the bad” never existed in the first place.

2. The Verification:

a) Abu Hurairah did not say/think: “I will take the good and leave the bad.”

b) Having pity on a person does not necessarily mean believing in him.

c) Rather 3 times Abu Hurairah believed in the words of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم over the words of that person:

i) Twice when Abu Hurairah took pity on him, but the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said that he has lied and will come again. Abu Hurairah said: “I believed that he would show up again as Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم had told me that he would return.”

ii) The third is when the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “He really spoke the truth, although he is an absolute liar.”

d) That person continuously lied to Abu Hurairah in the matters of the Dunya, and the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم had pre-informed him about that person’s lies, so how can Abu Hurairah trust him in the matters of the Deen WITHOUT VERIFYING?

Allaah تعالى said:

﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن جَاءَكُمْ فَاسِقٌ بِنَبَإٍ فَتَبَيَّنُوا أَن تُصِيبُوا قَوْمًا بِجَهَالَةٍ فَتُصْبِحُوا عَلَىٰ مَا فَعَلْتُمْ نَادِمِينَ﴾

{O you who Believe! If a Faasiq (disobedient, rebellious evil) person comes to you with a news, verify it, lest you harm people in ignorance, and afterwards you become regretful to what you have done.} [Surah al-Hujuraat (49):6]

e) Abu Hurairah verified the report from the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.

f) The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم came to know about the incident through Wahy (Revelation). He صلى الله عليه وسلم asked Abu Hurairah even before Abu Hurairah could inform him. Abu Hurairah said: “When I saw the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم next morning, he asked me: “O Abu Hurairah! What did your captive do last night?””

3. The Principle:

a) This Hadeeth is rather an example that religion is not to be taken from everyone, as Abu Hurairah relied on the statement of the one whom Allaah تعالى had trusted with Revelation – the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم – and not the statement of that person. And that the religion is not to be taken without verifying as was done by Abu Hurairah.

b) It is indirectly claiming that we have taken our religion from Shaitaan! And nothing can be further from the truth. And as Shaikh al-Fawzaan حفظه الله said: “This speech is using falsehood as proof.”

This is giving an open invitation to some of the Sufees (the “Awliyaa” and the “Abdaal” among them) to interpolate in the Deen of Allaah as they please. If it is allowed to take knowledge from Shaitaan, then they have more rights to this way of learning. They claim to receive Kashf [2] and they also claim to receive revelations directly from Allaah, as they say:

حدثني قلبي عن ربي

My heart informed me from my Lord…

We seek Allaah’s refuge from such foolishness.

And Finnaly :0…! Hizbi & Ikhwani A Question to you 

If YOU  always have an approach of “take good and leave bad” then

1. Go to chilla with Tableeghi jamat and “take good and leave bad”

2. Go to dargah with barelvis and “take good and leave bad”

3. Go with Rafidis and “take good and leave bad”

—————————-

Shaykh Saaleh al-Fawzaan حفظه الله: Said

He took knowledge from the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم. He did not take from Shaitaan. The Messenger of Allaah is the one who informed him of this and he did not take from Shaitaan. And he did not depend upon the statement of Shaitaan; rather he only depended upon the statement of the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم.

(The Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:) “He spoke the truth, while he is a compulsive liar.”

This is using falsehood as proof. This speech is using falsehood as proof.
