View Full Version : Question on hadith

11-22-2013, 03:18 PM
Assalamu alaikum my Muslim cousins (if it is proper to call you that since Jews/Christians and Muslims are technically cousins)! I had a question about some hadith.

The first one that I found says:
"Beware on the Day of Judgement; I shall myself be complainant against him who wrongs a Non-Muslim citizen of a Muslim state or lays on him a responsibility greater than he can bear or deprives him of anything that belongs to him." (Al-Mawardi)

And the second one I found, which I don't remember the source (I think it was from Al-Bukhari), but it says:
"He who hurts a non-Muslim citizen of a Muslim State – I am his adversary and I shall be his adversary on the Day of Judgment."

I can't find any specific location of these hadith. Are they actually hadith? Are they authentic?

edit: and I just remembered another hadith that I wanted to ask about authentication:
"Beware! Whoever is cruel and hard on a non-Muslim minority, or curtails their rights, or burdens them with more than they can bear, or takes anything from them against their free will; I (Prophet Muhammad) will complain against the person on the Day of Judgment." (Abu Dawud)

The idea behind these is correct. That no cruel treatment for non-Muslims who are Dhimmis is allowed. There would have been good reason for the Holy Prophet (saw) to mention this because history shows the Dhimmis under Muslim rule later on did suffer and were treated harshly. There was a weird law on making them humiliated when they gave the Jizyah. So I believe that he (saw) would have warned the Muslim Ummah against such future actions.

I will see if I can find anything as well. But I felt you needed some reassurance that the subject-matter is somewhat accurate, even if these Ahadith may not be.

I remember a story about the prophet s.a.w. always feeding a blind person who would say bad things about him, but the prophet never let it be known that it was him feeding the blind person. When the prophet 'wafat' (passed away) and someone else fed the blind person, in noticing the different way he/she was fed, questioned where was the person that usually feeds him/her? When that blind person was told that it was the prophet s.a.w.(whom he/she had been saying all kinds of bad stuff against) was the one who used to feed him/her and that he had passed on from this world, he/she became repentant and became a muslim.

The moral of the story is that sometimes it is how you treat people that may have the strongest influence on making people convert/revert not the arguments you put in place, hence probably part of the reason why such Hadiths came about.

Peace :shade:

Salam Cousin!

Sahih Bukhari hadiths are almost unanimously regarded as true sunnah. So anything similar in context to it is true as well..

but don't take this in a negative light. the prophet is simply saying that his enemy is one who harms a muslim. A muslim is a believer, so the enemy is a nonbeliever.
I can understand how you probably feel concerning this text as a christian, but don't worry. We're all brothers of the book.
