The Makan Narration Attributed to Imam Mujahid

The Makan Narration
Attributed to
Imam Mujahid

This article by Abul Hasan Hussain Ahmed (Deobandi) is some observations on the narration attributed to Imam Mujahid ibn Jabar regarding the ascription of a Makan (“Place”) for Allah – a reply to Harris Hammam, aka, Ismail Patel. 

An internet forum contributor known as 

^Harris Hammam (real name being Isma’il Patel) could not explain why Imam al-Bayhaqi did not affirm a Makan like he personally does, when for sure he also knew that Imam al-Bayhaqi clearly transmitted Imam Mujahid’s narration with the wording for Makan! 

Recall, Imam al-Bayhaqi is not only an Ash’ari in creed but also a major Hafidh of Hadith in his age.

Indeed, he was a true Imam of Ahlul Hadith, unlike today’s claimants

Imam al-Bayhaqi knew no one to quote before from al-Salaf or during his time that used a version of a narration attributed to Imam Mujahid mentioning Makan – to be an absolute proof to definitely affirm Makan for Allah! 

Wahhabi^Molvi Harris’s manhaj in ‘aqeeda is to use Maqtu’ narrations as a source of ‘aqeeda in order to affirm a Makan for Allah

While, the real Sunni methodology is to start with what Allah affirmed for himself and then what was transmitted by His Messenger (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), followed by the Sahaba and then those who took from them amongst the rightly guided one’s.

Defence of Abu Ja’far al-Razi as a Hadith Narrator

This article by Shaykh Dr. Abul Hasan Hussain Ahmed is a defence of an early Hadith Narrator – Abu Ja’far al-Razi, and an examination of his veracity as a transmitter of Narrations. This is a reply to an unknown (Majhul) person named as “Adeel” on a certain forum.

The following is a succinct response to the claims of an internet forum contributor calling himself “Adeel” with his personal description mentioning that he is 20 years old and his “avatar” shows a masked unknown figure. The latter point is thus a true reflection of his “scholarship”, as will be demonstrated from recourse to the masters of Hadith, Fiqh and Tafsir of the past in the main, as part and parcel of this riposte Insha’Allah.
