Some Commonly Quoted Fabricated Ahaadeeth

by Ab Rumaysah

Hadeeth 1 - '...I was a Hidden treasure...'

The hadeeth of the Messenger that he (SAW) said, "Allaah says, 'I was a hidden treasure, and I wished to be known, so I created a creation (mankind), then made Myself known to them, and they recognised Me.'"

As-Sakhaawee (d.902, the student of ibn Hajr al-Asqalaanee) said, "ibn Taymiyyah said, 'this is not from the words of the Prophet (SAW), and there is no known isnaad for it be it saheeh or da'eef.' And az-Zarkashee and our Shaykh (ibn Hajr) followed him (in this verdict)." ['al-Maqaasid al-Hasanah' of as-Sakhaawee (no. 838)]

As-Suyutee (d.911) said, "this has no basis (laa asla lahu)" ['Durural Muntathira' of as-Suyutee (no.330)]

al-Ijloonee (d.1162) said, "this saying occurs often in the words of the sufis, who have relied on it, and built some of their principles on it." [ 'Kashf al-Khafaa' of al-Ijloonee (no.2016)]

al-Albaanee (contemporary) says, "this hadeeth has no basis" ['Silsilah ad-Da'eefah' (1/166)]
