The book took many years in research and several months in the writing and review process. The table of contents can be seen below:

toc-1toc-2

Dozens of Hadith books were utilized in the research for this book including several of those that have not yet been translated into any other language. This book includes every Hadith there is on the subject of ‘Dajjal’ (إن شاء الله) with special care taken to ensure the authenticity of the reports. The weak and fabricated narrations have been included in a separate index at the end.

Furthermore, the varying theories have been put under the microscope and analysed in detail, people misusing the narrations have been called out and addressed as well.

The book attempts to focus mainly on the narrations and their study but the reader will find many links to the present times as well including the geopolitical situation of the world.

It is my attempt to keep the text simple and user-oriented making it easy to understand and I hope the language used, the sequence and series of events provided, and the style of clarification and elaboration used is just that and I hope that the readers find it beneficial. It is also my attempt to make this book a one stop area for all the needs – in other words, if you read this book, you will not need to go elsewhere for anything on the subject; hopefully all the potential questions have already been incorporated in it.

‘The People vs Muhammad – Psychological Analysis’ Refuted

One of the most hateful and vile pieces written against the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) is the book called ‘People Vs Muhammad – Psychological Analysis’. It is expected from venomous creatures to be like this in their private gatherings but the fact that such vile and disgusting words were formed into a book which was well received by many people is what prompted me to write a refutation.

Much of the criticism is regurgitated a lot has been copied from hateful websites. Many times, the author just makes various unfounded claims in brief and conveniently moves on. Such claims also require addressing but since this would cover a lot of space, specific dedicated links are added to direct the reader to the relevant rebuttal and explanation. Therefore, it is recommended for the reader not to ignore the links and footnotes – they are as essential as the main body, if not more so in some cases. Read more

Did Prophet Muhammad ﷺ bribe people to embrace Islam?

Critics of Islam argue that Prophet Muhammad –may the peace and mercy of Allah be upon him- gave money to people so that they convert to Islam or remain Muslim. They then argue that this is the reason why he had so many followers i.e. He used materialistic pleasures to lure people into Islam. Critics of Islam also argue that Islam teaches that Zakah (obligatory charity) can be given to soften the hearts of disbelievers. For their claims, they cite these narrations from Saheeh Bukhari.

Why do babies cry at birth? Hadith criticism answered

The Hadith under discussion is as follows:

قَالَ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏”‏ مَا مِنْ بَنِي آدَمَ مَوْلُودٌ إِلاَّ يَمَسُّهُ الشَّيْطَانُ حِينَ يُولَدُ، فَيَسْتَهِلُّ صَارِخًا مِنْ مَسِّ الشَّيْطَانِ، غَيْرَ مَرْيَمَ وَابْنِهَا ‏”‏‏.‏ ثُمَّ يَقُولُ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ ‏{‏وَإِنِّي أُعِيذُهَا بِكَ وَذُرِّيَّتَهَا مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ ‏}

Narrated Said bin Al-Musaiyab: Abu Huraira said, “I heard Allah’s Apostle saying, ‘There is none born among the off-spring of Adam, but Satan touches it. A child therefore, cries loudly at the time of birth because of the touch of Satan, except Mary and her child.” Then Abu Huraira recited: “And I seek refuge with You for her and for her offspring from the outcast Satan” (Qur’an 3.36)[1] Read more
