Falseness of the hadeeth, “Were it not for you, I would not have created the universe”

Falseness of the hadeeth, “Were it not for you (Muhammad (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam), I would not have created the universe”. Praise be to Allah. Many false and fabricated ahaadeeth have been narrated that say similar things. For example: “Were it not for you, I would not have created the universe.” This was quoted by al-Shawkaani in al-Fawaa'id al-Majmoo'ah fi'l-Ahaadeeth al-Mawdoo'ah (p. 326). He said: Al-San'aani said: (it is) mawdoo' (fabricated). Al-Albaani said in al-Silsilah al-Da'eefah (282): (it is) mawdoo'.

Shab-e-barat: Bid’ah of Sha’baan

Praise be to Allah. Some Muslims celebrate the middle of Sha'baan, fasting on that day and spending that night in prayer (qiyaam). There is a hadeeth concerning that which is not saheeh, hence the scholars regarded celebrating this day as an innovation (bid'ah). Muhammad 'Abd al-Salaam al-Shuqayri said: Imam al-Fatni said in Tadhkirat al-Mawdoo'aat: "Among the innovations that have been introduced on “Laylat an-Nusf” (mid-Sha'baan) is al-Salaat al-Alfiyyah, which is one hundred rak'ahs in which Soorat al-Ikhlaas is recited ten times in each rak'ah, offered in congregation; they pay more attention to this than to Jumu'ah and Eid prayers, although there Read more ...
