Is The Qur'aan Allaah's Speech? Or Is It Prepared by Allaah?

Surah Al-Faathihah - Revealed To Our Prophet? Or Composed By Hindu Priests?



The readers have already seen how Zakir Naik has given Allaah names such as Brahma and Vishnu and legislated that Allaah can be invoked by these names. For details please refer to the following post:

http://salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=8&Topic=4240

Also please refer to the link in the beginning of the post to see Zakir Naik's aqeedah that Allaah has produced the Qur'aan which is the very belief of Jahmiyyah and Mu'tazilah.

Now the readers shall get more acquaintance about Zakir Naik's Aqeedah. Here Zakir Naik claims the Aayaath of the Qur'aan are same as those present in the Hindu Veds. And Insha Allaah I will list the details and readers can make their own judgement...barakAllaahu Feekum!


Zakir Naik claims:


It is mentioned in Rig Ved, Book number 5 Chapter 81 verse 1
Verily, great is the glory of the devine creator
same as Surah Faathihah Chapter 1 Verse 1,
Alhamdulillaahi-Rabbil-Aalameen
Praise be to Allaah Sub`hanahu wa ta`aala, the Lord of the worlds,

It is further mentioned in Rig Ved, Book number 3 Hymn number 34 verse 1
It says: He is the bountiest Giver.

It is mentioned in Yajur Ved, Chapter 40 verse number 16
It says: Lead us to the good path and save us from the sins which makes us wander and go astray.
Similar to the Holy Qur'aan, in Surah al-Fathihah Chapter number 1 Verse number 6 and 7 which says:
Ihhdinassiraathal Musthaqeem Siraathal-lazeena an`amtha alayhim ghayril Maghdhoobi alayhim

Waladdhaalleen
That show us the Straight Path, the Path of those who have earned thy favour,
and the path of those who go not astray,

It is mentioned in Rig Ved, Book number 6 Chapter 45 verse 16
Yaa ik ith thamushttheehi (य एक इत तमु षटुहि)
Praise Him Who is matchless and alone.

Surah al-Faathihah Was Neither Revealed To Any Prophet Before Our Prophet Nor Found In Torah Injeel Zuboor Or Rest Of  The Qur'aan!!!



Ahmad reports from Abu Hurayrah (RadhiAllaahu Anhu) who said,

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) named Ubayy bin Ka`b while he was praying in the Mosque saying, "O Ubayy!" Ubayy turned his head towards him but did not reply. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) named him again saying, "O Ubayy!" So Ubayy shortened his prayer and turned towards the Prophet and said, "as salaam u alaikum O Messenger of Allaah." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) replied, "wa alaikum as-salaam. What prevented you from replying to me when I named you?"
Ubayy said, "O Messenger of Allaah I was praying!" He said, "does Allaah not say,

?Respond to Allaah and the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life.?[Al-Anfaal (8): 24]?

Ubayy replied, "yes O Messenger of Allaah! I will not do this again." The Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) asked, "would you like me to teach you a Surah the likes of which is not to be found in the Torah, Injeel, Zaboor or the [rest of the] Qur`aan?" He said, "yes O Messenger of Allaah."

The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "I hope that I will not leave this door until you know it." Ubayy said, "then he took hold of my hand and talked to me while I slowed down fearing that we may reach the door before he finished talking. When we did reach it I asked him, ?what is the Surah you promised me, O Messenger of Allaah?? He said, ?what is the Surah you recite in prayer?? So I recited the Mother of the Qur`aan upon which he said,
quote:

?by the One in Whose Hand is my soul, Allaah has not revealed the likes of it in the Torah, Injeel, Zaboor or the [rest of the] Qur`aan. It is the Seven Oft-Repeated verses.?


[Ahmad [5/114], ibn Khuzaymah [1/252 no. 500] and others. Its isnaad was declared saheeh by Mustafaa al-A`dhamee in his takhreej to ibn Khuzaymah]


Muslim reports from ibn Abbaas (RadhiAllaahu Anhu) who said,

While the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was sitting with Jibreel he heard a creaking sound above him. Jibreel looked up and said, "this is [the sound of] a gate that has been opened in heaven today and has never been previously opened." Then an Angel descended through it and came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) and said,
quote:

"rejoice in the good news of two lights that have been given to you such as no prophet before you has been given. [They are] Surah al-Faatihah and the concluding [two] verses of Surah al-Baqarah.



You will never recite a word from them without being given the blessings they contain.

[Saheeh Muslim [Eng. Trans. 2/586 no. 1759]



[Note:-These two ahadeeth are taken from an excellent article on www.troid.org, since the website has been redesigned and links are no more valid, I cant quote the link, Please search on the site]

O Muslim Ummah! who are you going to trust? Will you trust Zakir Naik or will you trust the Messenger of Allaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam? Indeed our noble Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam informed us in
truth and the Muhadditheen have conveyed to us the truth, generation by generation. Those who uphold this deen are none but the people of hadeeth. And the people of hadeeth are not those who promote such beliefs, but the Ulamaa of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jamaah, well known and not those who sell their deen for a cheap price for cheap publicity and donations from Zakir Naik...

In the next post, you shall see what these quotes are in reality from the original Hindu Scriptures!!!

Where Is RABBIL-AALAMEEN in this hindu poem?



Claim # 1

quote:

It is mentioned in Rig Ved, Book number 5 Chapter 81 verse 1
Verily, great is the glory of the devine creator
same as Surah Faathihah Chapter 1 Verse 1,
Alhamdulillaahi-Rabbil-Aalameen
Praise be to Allaah Sub`hanahu wa ta`aala, the Lord of the worlds,


Below is my analysis from the Rig Ved...


युञ्जते मन उत युञ्जते धियो विप्रा विप्रस्य बर्हतो विपश्चितः |
वि होत्रा दधे वयुनाविद एक इन मही देवस्य सवितुः परिष्टुतिः ||


This is the first line of Book 5, Chapter 81 which Naik is referring to, and observe as to how Zakir Naik has translated this last portion and claims this is same as 'Alhamdulillaahi Rabbil-Aalameen'. Let us see if Rabbil Aaalameen exists in this line...

Here Rabbil-Aalameen is an annexed form and is referred only to Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic.

If you look at the following link I have already clarified Zakir Naik's claim that Vishnu means Rabb in arabic and hence Allaah can be invoked by the name Vishnu!
http://salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=8&Topic=4240

If you look at the last portion which he claims to be same as Alhamdulillaahi Rabbil-Aalameen, YOU WILL NOT FIND VISHNU but rather you will find Savithuh or Savitar. So now Naik has given another name to Allaah which is Savitar and he has claimed that this is devine creator in english and Rabbil-Aalameen in arabic.

Another point to be noted is In the first Aayah of Surah al-Faathihah, it begins with Alhamdulillaahi...All Praises are due to Allaah. So where is the word Allaah in this line?

So Mr. Naik has made yet another claim that Devasya is Allaah implicitly..

Khayr, let us see how this is translated by Ralph Griffith, the favourite translator of Zakir Naik! This chapter is written in praise of Savitar, which literally means 'Sun Ray' but is referred to the Sun god of hindus. I have quoted few lines from this chapter to make it clear to the readers what the full context of this chapter is and how blatant are Zakir Naik's distortions!!!


                        HYMN 81. Savitar.


1. THE priests of him the lofty Priest well-skilled in hymns harness their spirit, yea, harness their holy thoughts.

He only knowing works assigns their priestly tasks. Yea, lofty is the praise of Savitar the God.
[This is the line that Naik has claimed to be same as first Aayah of Surah al-Faathihah]

2 The Sapient One arrays himself in every form: for quadruped and biped he hath brought forth good.
Excellent Savitar hath looked on heaven's high vault, and shineth after the outgoing of the Dawn.

3 Even he, the God whose going-forth and majesty the other Deities have followed with their might,
He who hath measured the terrestrial regions out by his great power, he is the Courser Savitar.

4 To the three spheres of light thou goest, Savitar, and with the rays of Sidrya thou combinest thee.
Around, on both sides thou encompassest the night: yea, thou, O God, art Mitra through thy righteous laws.


From the above lines it is clear what this chapter is referring to and the contents are self-explanatory. The second line clarly says, the One arrays himself in every form, hooked on heaven's of high vault, shining after the outgoing of dawn, the courser Savitar (Sun)...etc.

So all of these attributes are that of the Sun and its rays described, praised and worshipped.

How daring is Zakir Naik to first distort this to refer this object of worship as Allaah the Mighty and Majestic?
Then how bold is he to say this is same as the aayah of the Qur'aan? That too from Surah al-Faathihah? Revealed upon the heart of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallaam from above the seven heavens, Brought by the noble angel Jibreel?


The Messenger of Allaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallaam informed us that the angel gave a glad tiding, that this noble Surah was not revealed to anyone before! Then after all of this how can Zakir Naik make such claims. This is the so called Allaamatul Muslimeen!!! Sub'hanAllaah! how desperately Jam'iyyah wants him to be Ahle-Hadees and how blatantly he rejects them! Yet! the fanatic youth from the Jam'iyyah have no concern for the Aqeedah of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jamaah.

The AHWA and AFWAA misguidance center should take heed!

May Allaah save us from such desires and deviations!

Zakir Naik, Hanafee Fiqh & AHWA-AFWA Carry Bags



It is mentioned in the hanafee fiqh books that it is permissible to recite the translation of the interpretation of the meanings of the Qur'aan in the Salaah...also chapters from Torah and Injeel!!!


: ϡ


?If a person recites Quranic chapters in Persian or from Torah or Bible if he recites only stories (from Torah or Bible) it (salaah) would be void. But if there is dhikr, prayer is not void.?

Durru Mukhtar, Pg. 65


Although, only Persian language is mentioned in the above statements, it is just by way of example, otherwise one can pray in any language - Qiyaas al-Hanafee

Then the author of Durru Mukhthaar mentioned on Pg. 64:
?Only Burooi has confined it to Persian, otherwise all other scholars (of hanafee madh'hab) consider prayer lawful in any  language.?


. .


?It is permissible to recite the Takbir (Allahu Akbar in the salaah) in Persian as mentioned in books of jurisprudence, even if one can say it perfectly in Arabic. However, if one can correctly say it in Arabic it is detestable (Makruh) to say it in Persian. According to the saying of Abu Yusuf and Muhammad, if one can recite in Arabic it is unlawful to recite in Persian. It is quoted in Muheet in a similar manner. There is same
difference of opinion about all recitations of Prayer including Tashahud, Qunut Dua, Tasbeehaat, Ruku and Sujud (i.e. difference of opinion is not restricted to only ?Takbirut-Tahreema ?) and (this permission is not only for Persian language but) permissibility exists for all non-Arabic languages like Turkish, Hamite, Jashi and Nabatean. It is mentioned in the same way in Fataawa Qaadee Khan.?

[Fataaawa A'lamgeeri 2/31]



Any non-Arabic language? So why not Sanskrit? Anyway the Aryans originated from persia/babylon!!! So based on the hanafee fiqh, one can recite in the Salaah the interpretations of the meanings of the Qur'aan in Sanskrit aswell...but what the hanafees have permitted is the actual translations into other languages.

In contrast what Zakir Naik has done is nothing more than unjust distortions!!! He has claimed that more than half of aayaath of Surah al Faathiha, 33 different attributes of Allaah are in Hindu Veds.

Zakir Naik has translated " Yea, lofty is the praise of Savitar the God." to be same as " Alhamdulillaahi Rabbil-Aalameen " Wa Iyyaadhubillaah!!!

While the reality is these poems are BLATANT SHIRK AND MANIFEST KUFR and there is no proof from either the Qur'aan and Sunnah to even claim that these Hindu Veds are Revelations from Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, let alone the contents to claim that they were distorted later. And the Qur'aan is the Speech of Allaah!!! So what is the recompense of the one who believes and propogates that the aayaath of the Qur'aan are nothing but what these Hindu priests have composed in their Veds!!!

The Mushrikeen claimed...as Allaah has informed us in His Book,

quote:

And when Our Verses (of the Qur'n) are recited to them, they say: "We have heard this (the Qur'n); if we wish we can say the like of this. This is nothing but the tales of the ancients." (Al-Anfal 8:31)


Allaah said:

quote:

Say: "If the mankind and the jinns were together to produce the like of this Qur'n, they could not produce the like thereof, even if they helped one another." (Al-Isra 17:88)


Both men and jinn together helping one another? Then what is the recompense of the one who claims it was already composed by the hindu priests and one has to just translate into Arabic??

And Allaah has challenged...He, The Most High mentioned,

quote:

And if you (Arab pagans, Jews, and Christians) are in doubt concerning that which We have sent down (i.e. the Qur'n) to Our slave (Muhammad Peace be upon him ), then produce a Srah (chapter) of the like thereof and call your witnesses (supporters and helpers) besides Allh, if you are truthful. (Al-Baqarah 2:23)


And if this is the reality, then how daring is Zakir Naik to claim that more than half of Surah Faathiha was present in Veds?


So I say, Zakir Naik is more worse than the hanafee fuqahaa in this matter and you O AHWA & AFWAA are carrying his tales far and wide into the Muslim Ummah. This practically makes YOU worse than the hanafees!!!

And may Allaah Guide us all.

Assalamu alaykum

subhanallah, this is the action of the people who are distorting the deen of Allah in the name of dawah.  Since one cant give what he or she does not have, the knowledge comes first.  Allah subhanahu wa ta'aala says:





Say (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)): "This is my way; I invite unto Allh (i.e. to the Oneness of Allh - Islmic Monotheism) with sure knowledge, I and whosoever follows me (also must invite others to Allh i.e to the Oneness of Allh - Islmic Monotheism) with sure knowledge. And Glorified and Exalted be Allh (above all that they associate as partners with Him). And I am not of the Mushrikn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allh; those who worship others along with Allh or set up rivals or partners to Allh)." (Yusuf 12:108)

The Meaning Of Sirat-al-Musthaqeem - Explained By Hafidh Ibn Katheer rahimahullaah








As for the meaning of As-Sirat Al-Mustaqim, Imam Abu Ja`far At-Tabari said, "The Ummah agreed that Sirat Al-Mustaqim, is the clear path without branches, according to the language of the Arabs. For instance, Jarir bin `Atiyah Al-Khatafi said in a poem, `The Leader of the faithful is on a path that will remain straight even though the other paths are crooked.'' At-Tabari also stated that, "There are many evidences to this fact.'' At-Tabari then proceeded, "The Arabs use the term, Sirat in reference to every deed and statement whether righteous or wicked. Hence the Arabs would describe the honest person as being straight and the wicked person as being crooked. The straight path mentioned in the Qur'an refers to Islam.


Imam Ahmad recorded in his Musnad that An-Nawwas bin Sam`an said that the Prophet said,



ǡ : ǡ : : :


(Allah has set an example: a Sirat (straight path) that is surrounded by two walls on both sides, with several open doors within the walls covered with curtains. There is a caller on the gate of the Sirat who heralds, 'O people! Stay on the path and do not deviate from it.' Meanwhile, a caller from above the path is also warning any person who wants to open any of these doors, 'Woe unto you! Do not open it, for if you open it you will pass through.' The straight path is Islam, the two walls are Allah's set limits, while the doors resemble what Allah has prohibited. The caller on the gate of the Sirat is the Book of Allah, while the caller above the Sirat is Allah's admonishment in the heart of every Muslim.)

If someone asks, "Why does the believer ask Allah for guidance during every prayer and at other times, while he is already properly guided Has he not already acquired guidance''


The answer to these questions is that if it were not a fact that the believer needs to keep asking for guidance day and night, Allah would not have directed him to invoke Him to acquire the guidance. The servant needs Allah the Exalted every hour of his life to help him remain firm on the path of guidance and to make him even more firm and persistent on it. The servant does not have the power to benefit or harm himself, except by Allah's permission. Therefore, Allah directed the servant to invoke Him constantly, so that He provides him with His aid and with firmness and success. Indeed, the happy person is he whom Allah guides to ask of Him. This is especially the case if a person urgently needs Allah's help day or night. Allah said,



﴿ ﴾


(O you who believe! Believe in Allah, and His Messenger (Muhammad ), and the Book (the Qur'an) which He has sent down to His Messenger, and the Scripture which He sent down to those before (him)) (4:16).


Therefore, in this Ayah Allah commanded the believers to believe, and this command is not redundant since what is sought here is firmness and continuity of performing the deeds that help one remain on the path of faith. Also, Allah commanded His believing servants to proclaim,


﴿ ﴾


(Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate (from the truth) after You have guided us, and grant us mercy from You. Truly, You are the Bestower.) (3:8). Hence,



﴿ ﴾


(Guide us to the straight way) means, "Make us firm on the path of guidance and do not allow us to deviate from it.''


﴿ ﴾


(153. "And verily, this is My straight path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His path. This He has ordained for you that you may have Taqwa.")

`Ali bin Abi Talhah reported that Ibn `Abbas commented on Allah's statements,


﴿ ﴾


(And follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His path.), and,


﴿ ﴾


((Saying) that you should establish religion and make no divisions in it.) ﴿42:13﴾, and similar Ayat in the Qur'an, "Allah commanded the believers to adhere to the Jama`ah and forbade them from causing divisions and disputes. He informed them that those before them were destroyed because of divisions and disputes in the religion of Allah.'' Similar was said by Mujahid and several others. Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal recorded that `Abdullah bin Mas`ud said, "The Messenger of Allah drew a line with his hand (in the sand) and said,


ǻ


(This is Allah's path, leading straight.) He then drew lines to the right and left of that line and said,





(These are the other paths, on each path there is a devil who calls to it.) He then recited,


﴿ ﴾


(And verily, this is My straight path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His path.)﴿6:153﴾'' Al-Hakim also recorded this Hadith and said; "Its chain is Sahih, but they did not record it.'' Imam Ahmad and `Abd bin Humayd recorded (and this is the wording of Ahmad) that Jabir said; "We were sitting with the Prophet when he drew a line in front of him and said,





(This is Allah's path.) He also drew two lines to its right and two lines to its left and said,





(These are the paths of Shaytan.) He then placed his hand on the middle path and recited this Ayah;


﴿ ﴾


(And verily, this is My straight path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His path. This He has ordained for you that you may have Taqwa.) Imam Ahmad, Ibn Majah, in the Book of the Sunnah in his Sunan, and Al-Bazzar collected this Hadith. Ibn Jarir recorded that a man asked Ibn Mas`ud, "What is As-Sirat Al-Mustaqim (the straight path)'' Ibn Mas`ud replied, "Muhammad left us at its lower end and its other end is in Paradise. To the right of this Path are other paths, and to the left of it are other paths, and there are men (on these paths) calling those who pass by them. Whoever goes on the other paths will end up in the Fire. Whoever takes the Straight Path, will end up in Paradise.'' Ibn Mas`ud then recited the Ayah;


﴿ ﴾


(And verily, this is My straight path, so follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His path.)'" Imam Ahmad recorded that, An-Nawwas bin Sam`an said that the Messenger of Allah said,


ǡ :


(Allah has given a parable of the straight path, and on the two sides of this path, there are two walls containing door ways. On these door ways, there are curtains that are lowered down. on the gate of this path there is a caller heralding, `O people! come and enter the straight path all together and do not divide. ' There is also another caller that heralds from above the path, who says when a person wants to remove the curtain on any of these doors, `Woe to you! Do not open this door, for if you open it, you will enter it. The (straight) path is Islam, the two walls are Allah's set limits, the open doors lead to Allah's prohibitions, the caller on the gate of the path is Allah's Book (the Qur'an), while the caller from above the path is Allah's admonition in the heart of every Muslim.) At-Tirmidhi and An-Nasa'i also recorded this Hadith, and At-Tirmidhi said, "Hasan Gharib.'' Allah's statement,


﴿ ﴾


(so follow it, and follow not (other) paths...) describes Allah's path in the singular sense, because truth is one. Allah describes the other paths in the plural, because they are many and are divided. Allah said in another Ayah,


﴿ ﴾


(Allah is the Wali (Protector or Guardian) of those who believe. He brings them out from darknesses into light. But as for those who disbelieve, their supporters are Taghut (false deities), they bring them out from light into darknesses. Those are the dwellers of the Fire, and they will abide therein forever.) ﴿2:257﴾

Did Allaah Not Make Shirk Manifestly Clear From Tawheed?









Claim # 3

It is mentioned in Yajur Ved, Chapter 40 verse number 16
It says: Lead us to the good path and save us from the sins which makes us wander and go astray.
Similar to the Holy Qur'aan, in Surah al-Fathihah Chapter number 1 Verse number 6 and 7 which says:
Ihhdinassiraathal Musthaqeem Siraathal-lazeena an`amtha alayhim ghayril Maghdhoobi alayhim Waladdhaalleen That show us the Straight Path, the Path of those who have earned thy favour, and the path of those who go not astray....



Below are the lines 16 and 17 from Yajurved...

16 By goodly path lead us to riches, Agni, thou God who
knowest all our works and wisdom.
Remove the sin that makes us stray and wander: most
ample adoration will we bring thee.

17 The Real's face is hidden by a vessel formed of golden light.
The Spirit yonder in the Sun, the Spirit dwelling there am I.
OM! Heaven! Brahma!
[Chapter 40 - YajurVed, Line number 16]

This line, addresses Agni which in and itself is BLATANT MAJOR SHIRK,
let alone the actual contents. Does Zakir Naik need to be taught that this is shirk?

See the next line (line 17), it is vividly clear, that it is Sun, the spirit in the sun.
And this Agni(literally fire) as explained is a form of Sun. So in what way has Naik made it similar to Ihdinas-siraath-al-Musthaqeem?

Does Naik have a doubt that these invocations are those of as`haabul-Jaheem?

And even if you analyse the contents, you can see what the invocation is for? It says by goodly path lead us to riches!!!

So show me where is Siraath-al-Musthaqeem? Is this your understanding of
Siraath al-Musthaqeem?

How is 'By goodly path lead us to riches, Agni, thou God who
knowest all our works and wisdom.' 'IHDINAS-SIRAATH-AL-MUSTHAQEEM'?

What are these riches? And what is that goodly path which leads to it? Let us remove this misunderstanding of Mr. Naik, I will quote from the other portions of the veds to clarify the meaning...

RigVed - Agni - Book 2 Hymn-2

Such as thou art, brilliantly kindled for our weal, a liberal giver, send us riches in thy shine,
For our advantage, Agni, God, bring Heaven and Earth hither that they may taste oblation brought by man.
So what is the riches contained in the shine? Shine of sun?

Agni, give us great wealth, give riches thousandfold. unclose to us, like doors, strength that shall bring renown.
Make Heaven and Earth propitious through the power of prayer, and like the sky's bright sheen let mornings beam on us.

Great Wealth? Thousandfold? Is this what we ask 17 times in Salaah every day?

Enkindled night by night at every morning's dawn, may he shine forth with red flame like the realm of light,-
Agni adored in beauteous rites with lauds of men, fair guest of living man and King of all our folk.
Shine like flame? Red flame? Realm of light?

May Allaah save us from this calamity of similarity..

Mankind were one community and Allh sent Prophets with glad tidings and warnings, and with them He sent the Scripture in truth to judge between people in matters wherein they differed. And only those to whom (the Scripture) was given differed concerning it after clear proofs had come unto them through hatred, one to another. Then Allh by His Leave guided those who believed to the truth of that wherein they differed. And Allh guides whom He wills to a Straight path. (Al-Baqarah 2:213)
