Wahhabi/Salafi Forgery of Tafsir Ibn Kathir

Wahhabi forgeries in the Tafsir Ibn Kathir 

Forgeries in recently published Tafsir Ibn Kathir in Urdu Language

Those who can read Urdu would understand that under Surah ar-Room Verse # 52 the Salafis ended the Tafsir at: 

Allah us ki Ruh ko Lota deta hai Yahan tak kay wo Jawab day.

Translation in English: 
Allah returns his soul to the extent that he gives an answer.

After this they completely removed the passage of Hafidh Ibn Kathir (rah) who is saying:

 وثبت عنه صلى الله عليه وسلم لأمته إذا سلموا على أهل القبور أن يسلموا عليهم سلام من يخاطبونه، فيقول المسلم: السلام عليكم دار قوم مؤمنين، وهذا خطاب لمن يسمع ويعقل، ولولا هذا الخطاب، لكانوا بمنزلة خطاب المعدوم والجماد، والسلف مجمعون على هذا، وقد تواترت الآثار عنهم بأن الميت يعرف بزيارة الحي له، ويستبشر


 It is established from Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon him) that he instructed his ummah that when they greet the inhabitants of the graves, they should greet them with the greeting of "ADDRESSING THEM (DIRECTLY)" thus the one greeting says ‘peace be on to you, abode of the group of believers’ “AND SUCH AN ADDRESS IS [ONLY] FOR ONE WHO HEARS AND THINKS (وهذا خطاب لمن يسمع ويعقل). Were it not so, this address would be akin to addressing an absent person or an inanimate object (ولولا هذا الخطاب، لكانوا بمنزلة خطاب المعدوم والجماد). “THE SALAF (PREDECESSORS) HAVE CONSENSUS ON THIS AS THE NARRATIONS FROM THEM THAT THE DEAD PERSON KNOWS OF THE VISIT OF THE LIVING TO HIM AND REJOICES. THESE ARE MASS TRANSMITTED (tawatur)(السلف مجمعون على هذا، وقد تواترت الآثار عنهم بأن الميت يعرف بزيارة الحي له، ويستبشر).

- End Quote -  [Tafsir al Qur’an al Azeem by Hafidh Ibn Katheer under 30:52]

This clarifies the beautiful aqida of Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) like a bright sun and does not require further commentary by me. The Salafis could not digest this because hearing of the dead is considered as Shirk by them let alone considering it a "CONSENSUS OF SALAF AND THAT IT IS PROVEN FROM TAWATUR"

Nasir ud-din Albani:

وذكر الألباني في كتابه "حجة النبي صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ" (ص185) أن من بدع زيارة المدينة النبوية "التزام زوار المدينة الإقامة فيها أسبوعا حتى يتمكنوامن الصلاة في المسجد النبوي أربعين صلاة ، لتكتب لهم براءة من النفاق وبراءة من النار
Translation: Albani mentioned in his book "Hujjat al-Nabi(Peace be upon him) 
Page # 185: it is an innovation (bid’ah) to visit Madeenah and tell the visitors to Madeenah to stay there for a week so that they will be able to offer forty prayers in the Prophet’s Mosque so that they will be free from hypocrisy and saved from the Fire.".
[Fatawa al Islam (1/3480) given by Wahabi Sheikh Salih al-Munajjad of website, Online Question # 34752]

Actually the hadith of 40 prayers in Masjid an-Nabwi is authentic and it is Dajl/lie of Albani to call it weak.
None of the classical Muhaditheen called this report as weak rather they called it "SAHIH/HASAN"
عن أنس بن مالك ، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلّم قال: «مَنْ صَلَّى في مَسْجِدِي أَرْبَعينَ صَلاةً لا تَفُوْتُهُ صَلاةٌ كَتَبَ له بَرَاءَةً مِنَ النَّارِ وَبَرَاءَةً مِنَ العَذَابِ، وَبَرِىءَ مِنَ النِّفَاقِ».
قلت: روى الترمذي بعضه.
رواه أحمد والطبراني في الأوسط ورجاله ثقات.


Narrated by Anas bin Malik (ra) that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: Anyone who prays 40 prayers in my Mosque without missing a single one, then for him is freedom from hell fire, freedom from torment and freedom from Nifaaq

Imam al-Haythami said: Some part of it is narrated in Tirmidhi. This one is narrated by Imam Ahmed, Tabarani in his al-Awsat and the Rijaal of it are “(ALL) THIQA” 
[Majma az-Zawaid 3/667, Hadith # 5878]

Imam al-Mundhiri (rah) said in his Targheeb wa Tarheeb:
رواه أحمد، ورواته رواة الصحيح،

Translation: It is narrated by Ahmed and It is amongst Sahih narrations 
[Targheeb wa Tarheeb 2/139]
