Heretics’ Tampering With Traditional Texts

Extinction of honesty counts one of the signs of the Last Day as The Holy Prophet (PBUH) precisely predicted. We can see all of His prophecies being realized and this is one of them. How sad to see people who are visibly pious and religious deceiving their followers and that is too in the name of Religion!?

Deviant sects are being caught tampering classic traditional books of great scholars because these texts reject their made-up ideologies. They have tried to destroy the history as their new innovations cannot stand up in the presence of those historical evidences. The worst example is that occurred in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia during Wahabi onslaught.

Recently I have been asked about Imam Nawawis (R) stand on constructing and maintaining structures upon the graves of prophets and saints. I went through his famous book Rawdha Talibeen through an e-library called Makthbah Shamilah which offers thousands of classic books and is widely used by students.  I was shocked to see the sentence has been tampered with. I went online to get the correct version, but to be shocked again to see it distorted. Praise to Almighty Allah as I continued my search until I found the exact text.

What is striking is the divine dignity of Imam Nawawi (R). Those deceivers could not erase the sentence altogether but left behind crystal clear traces to inform the reader of a mischievous deletion! Subhan Allah. See the links and compare with the image below:

 But it was very upsetting and shocking for me to be convinced of the widening deception  and distortion in religious texts. My simple search yielded horrible results.  Many books of Imam Nawawi (R)  has been attacked including Al Adhkar where he asks to seek prophet’s intercession upon visiting His Rawdha in Madina . (See the image below that contains the confession from Wahabi scholars of altering and deleting Imam Nawawis (R) Texts!)

Great works of other scholars’ like Bin Abideen Al Hanfi, Abu Hayyan Nahwi and Imam Allama Swavi(R) have also been played with. It is in additional to the misinterpretations, mistranslations and badly informed notes on hundreds of traditional religious texts.

It is interesting to know that these people have tampered with the texts of even Ibnu Thaimiyya when he comes against their extremist views; it is done in case they failed to keep them in the hideouts as they have done with some other books. His well-known fatwa of Mardin which is used by terrorists to kill innocent people is considered to be a tampered text otherwise a writing error. See http://www.mardin-fatwa.com
So I just want my friends to be well aware of this danger not to be fooled by those heretical fanatics. May Almighty Allah save us all!

  1. Very horrible findings : useful and informative : wanted more exploration in this regard

    • Jazak Allah Khairan , Brother

  2. Salam alaykum,

    Brother, could you translate the relevant portion indicating Imam Nawawi’s position on constructing over graves and also quote other sections of Imam Nawawi related to his opinion on this issue ?

    • WaalaikumSalam,
      The Position of Imam Nawawi Rahimahullah on this issue is indicated here as the passage says that ” It is allowed for a Muslim and Dhimmi to allot money in one’s testament for maintenance of Masjidul Aqsa and other mosques as well as graves of prophets, scholars and virtuous people.”
      But it is not desirable (Karaha) to build mosques (Masjid) ON these graves as he says in Majmoou.
      ( واتفقت نصوص الشافعي والأصحاب على كراهة بناء مسجد على القبر سواء كان الميت مشهوراً بالصلاح أو غيره لعموم الأحاديث ) ” المجموع ” (5/316)
      (The statements of Imam Shafiee and his companions are unanimous on the undesirability (Al Karahath) of building a Masjid on any grave, The pious and others are same in this regard as the Hadiths are unconditional.) He refers here to those hadiths which are misused by fanatics to justify their vandalism on holy shrines.
      Allah knows Best.
