These collections, of course, were not verified by the Prophet or any of the scribes, being as they were, personal writings of each person.
Each piece was verified through his own memory and verified by Sayiddna Umar, who himself was a Hafidh. It is also a testament to the truthfulness and veracity of our scholars that they did this, as it would have been easy for them to be selective and choose what suits them or only that which supports their opinions.
Rather, let him say: This means that any matter that has been wholly agreed upon cannot be incorrect or misguidance. Whoever claims that he knows them, is a liar.
Regardless, the translation offered is at best a very poor translation, and at worst, an outright lie. One of my teachers was once explaining to me the erroneous theological statement of a certain group, that looks sensible and harmless on the outset, but when analysed critically, comes uncomfortably close to blasphemy.
This was not their mission. Whatever the reasons and debate surrounding the personality of Ibn Abu Dawud, it does not take away from his work. He wanted the material it was written on, a mxsahif copy as it were.
Consensus of the scholars of this ummah constitutes kutab a binding proof on any matter. Therefore, before we come to the issues you mentioned, it would behove us to go over some of these basic realities.
If there were any mistakes, the Prophet would correct it immediately and then present it in front of everyone. Thank you for your question. Sayyidna Zayd bin Thabit was extremely cautious and diligent when collating the maashif. Therefore, it is appropriate to ask: However, like many such discussions, maahif is a bigger picture. May Allah grant you the best of states and kiab you to what is pleasing to Him.
He likened it to a dirty carpet which has been rolled up and put away. In the Name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate. It is clear that Sayyidna Umar was not asking for the verse because he did not know it, or it had not been memorised by others, or that it had been forgotten or lost somehow.
However, if one reads further on in the kitag book and looks at other biographic books, we find a different picture, and that Ibn Abu Dawud is held by the majority of scholars of hadith as an Imam in the science, and indeed many of his contemporaries and subsequent scholars of hadith stated that he was more expert in hadith than his own father!
This is amsahif the same explanation given in every other reliable book of Quranic Exegesis. It was indeed complete, with no parts lost or missing. This has no ramification or consequence on maahif final compilation of the Quran scrupulously undertaken by Sayiddna Zaid bin Thabit under the order of Masahiv Abu Bakr and with the assistance of Sayiddna Umar may Allah be please with them all.
Moreover, without having learnt the fundamentals of the traditional Islamic sciences, including the auxiliary disciplines such as the Arabic language, and under qualified scholars, approaching translated texts can be hazardous. And it is protected through its inimitability, such that no one will [ever] be capable to oppose it or produce anything like unto it. Each piece was collated and compared to the collections of other companions. All of which is reprehensible to any believer.
Therefore, I will quote Shaykh Gibril in regards to this individual question:. The task of filtering through such works requires expertise and scholarly precision, let alone a lot of time. Would it affect our faith in what remains in any way or our practice of the religion?
Sayyidna Umar already knew the verse he was looking for by heart as he was a hafidhas did numerous amounts of kotab other Companions and most likely the person he asked about it! Meticulously upright and reliable witnesses were also bought forth to testify that each piece that was written was done so in the presence of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.
Rather they compiled and passed down everything they could gather so that later scholars could critically assess and scrutinise each piece of information, and this is something they did meticulously. But once you unravel it, and spread it out into full view, the full extent of the dirt it contains becomes apparent.
