The simplest answer is that what the Prophet (saws) may be describing is not something that we can observe in the dimensions that we live in. There are plenty of phenomena that the Qur'an and the Prophet (saws) talk about that are more "unscientific" than this. Take, for example, the hadith about sins causing black spots on our heart. Or the verse 83:14 in ...

At first pay attention that those people who you mentioned, going to this shrines to offer their prayers (Salat) to Allah.so, they won't worship graves there. And "places of worship" in this hadith, means places which people worship graves there instead of Allah. A fine point of conscience we should not forget is that God "Almighty" should be worshiped and ...

First let's re-quote the Hadith: حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو عَاصِمٍ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنَا ابْنُ جُرَيْجٍ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي عَطَاءٌ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ جَابِرَ بْنَ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ مَنْ أَكَلَ مِنْ هَذِهِ الشَّجَرَةِ ـ يُرِيدُ الثُّومَ ـ فَلاَ يَغْشَانَا فِي مَسَاجِدِنَا ‏"‏‏.‏ ...

First of all i have to correct some information in your question. The full name of sahih al-Bukhari and its meaning al-Bukhari was born in Bukhara which nowadays isn't located in Iran but in Uzbekistan and neither of those two countries existed or had those names at the time AFAIK. So saying he's Iranian is like some Arabs pretending ibn Sina to be an Arab ...

The hadith you are referring to is in Sahih al-Bukhari 2581, abridged to the phrase you are concerned about its translation: لاَ تُؤْذِينِي فِي عَائِشَةَ فَإِنَّ الْوَحْىَ لَمْ يَأْتِنِي وَأَنَا فِي ثَوْبِ امْرَأَةٍ إِلاَّ عَائِشَةَ Do not hurt me regarding Aisha, as the Divine Inspirations do not come to me on any of the beds except that of Aisha. — Sahih ...

Well in this general question there is nothing wrong with reading quran in a gathering. The salat & salam is also perfectly fine and it is also presribed to do so. Also, doing that in a gathering is not necessarily related to those 2 sects, because others do it also. That being said, it is also okay because the reason for that is so other people may also ...

Although I haven't seen any coccyx decomposition studies, there seems to be no scientific reason to believe that the coccyx decomposes at a dissimilar rate to the rest of the human skeleton. Nor would there be any scientific reason to believe that one could not simply take a human coccyx and cut it into parts finer than grains of mustard. The human tail ...

Note that the authors of sunnah.com for some strange reasons didn't translate the introductions of the subtitles or subsections in sahih al-Bukhari. They only translated the ahadith which are counted and usually commented by hadith commentators. As it is there where al-Bukhari mentions some words of wisdom or verses etc. (not necessary ahadith). For ...

What does the Qur'an say about the prostration of the sun: If you search in the Qur'an you will find a lots of Verses who tell us that the sun does prostrate and some who tell/indicate us "how": In Surat al-Hajj (22:18) the prostration of the sun is clearly mentioned! In other suwar (surahs) it's mentioned that all creations do prostrate like in ...

As a student who is studying physics, I can say you that; we have Relative and absolute motion. For example I am sitting behind my PC so my velocity is zero, this is true if we disregard this point, that the Earth and solar system and milky way and all the world has a velocity. So I am static relative to the Earth. Still we use relative motion to solve some ...

I think you got two mixed up here. Aqeeqa or slaughtering of sheep was a practice even from pre-Islamic days among Arabs whenever a child was born in a house. It's a form of celebration. Aqeeqa means celebration. This was continued even after Islam came. The hair is removed because that is the only sure and short way of cleaning pregnancy (pre-birth) ...

According to the majority of the scholars, the suffering refers to the hair of the newly born child. They got this from a Hadith of the prophet when he ordered Fatima to weigh the hair of Hassan, then told her to donate silver equal to the weight of Hassan's hair. This hadith was narrated by Malik and Behaqi (البيهقي). Source of hadith: here in Arabic. This ...

I found an upper bound for the amount of ahad hadiths of both sahihs in a statement of ibn Hajjar al-'Asqalani (in his book called al-Madkhal fi osol al-Hadith المدخل في أصول الحديث) saying it is around 200 hadiths, commenting a "False" statement of al-Hakim: وقد رد عليه الحافظ حجر بقوله : ...

I'd like to point at the commentary of an other hadith from sahih al-Bukhari i found in fath al-Barry of ibn Hajar al-'Asqalani about a linguistic Issue in the hadith narrations: It's the fact that " إِلاَّ " which usually quotes an exception could also be placed in a sentence or used in the meaning of " وَ " (in this case meaning "and") the so called "واو" ...

Imam al-Bukhari himself indicated that his collection was not 100% Sahih as per the way he would transmit the narration, and there are several. Imams like ad-Daraqutni, al-Aqili, ibn Hazem and even Ibn Hajr confirmed there are weak hadiths in al-Bukharis Jami. The problem is, Hadith science is a man-made science and it can be changed at anytime. Some ...

The conditions are those relating to the credibility level of the people in the narration chain. First, a clarification: the conditions of Al-Bukhāri (Arabic: شرط البخاري) relate solely to his book Al-Jāmi' Al-Musnad As-Sahīh Al-Mukhtasar (Arabic: الجامع المسند الصحيح المختصر من أمور رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وسننه وأيامه), commonly known as Sahīh al-...

To supplement III-AK-III's answer: Consider the following hadith for usage of ثوب as a blanket: ولا يفضي الرجل إلى الرجل في ثوب واحد a man should not lie with another man under one covering — Sahih Muslim And, as explained in the other answer, there are variants of the hadith which use a different expressions to further clarify what type of cloth is meant:...

None of the answers given so far seems satisfactory to me. As none of the answers shows a date of compilation of the copy presented as the original. An original manuscript of Sahih al-Bukhari in Andalussi or Maghrebi script is impossible First of all the one must be aware that the copy presented in the accepted answer was showing copies written in a Moroccan ...

...While I am in the world, I am the Light of the world." 6When He had said this, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and applied the clay to his eyes, 7and said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam " (which is translated, Sent).

Allah doesn't have a shape but the hadith you quoted doesn't imply that either. Note that صورة (sura) in Islamic gnostic/philosophical literature is usually translated to 'form' or 'image' not 'shape'. The word for shape is شکل or هیئة which are mainly used to denote a physical form or shape. Also صورة when used to imply the concept of 'form' can slightly ...

The ahadith narrated by abu Hurraira on the matter and which at least seem to go ahead with parts of your quote are the two similar (or identical ahadith) from sahih al-Bukhari quoted in Chapter: How the Salam began and Chapter: The creation of Adam and his offspring. The longer version of the hadith you quoted as far as i can tell isn't in sahih al-Bukahri ...

As Aboudi says it seems dodgy, I am by no means a scholar but I believe this hadith/qoute is fabricated. Also couldn't find this in any of the Kittabal-Sittah(Muslim,Bukhari,Abu Dawud, Tirmdhi, Sunan ibn Majah, Nisai) Some attribute this quote to Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings Be Upon him) , as this saying has no actual chain of narrators that can ...

The simple and short answer a response of the Prophet () is not quoted in any of both Sahihs (neither in Sahih al-Bukhari nor in Sahih Muslim). In fact they only quoted the jealous reaction of 'Aishah as you may find in your finding Sahih al-Bukhari and here in Sahih Muslim. This lead some scholars to the interpretation that the prophet () let these words ...

I think Medi1Saif is referring to: Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "Allah said, 'I will declare war against him who shows hostility to a pious worshipper of Mine. And the most beloved things with which My slave comes nearer to Me, is what I have enjoined upon him; and My slave keeps on coming closer to Me through performing Nawafil (...

According to the majority opinion, Abraham عليه السلام was not in doubt. The explanation of the hadith is that when some of the people heard the verse (2:260) they misinterpreted it and said that Abraham had doubted Allah's power while they and their prophet did not. On this the prophet Muhammad ﷺ refuted them by saying that "We have more right to be in ...

It is unscientific. There's no other way around it. Muhammad believed the sun set in a pool of murky water. This is also in the Qur'an itself: Qur’an 18:83-86—And they ask you about Dhul-Qarnain. Say: “I shall recite to you something of his story.” Verily, We established him in the earth, and We gave him the means of everything. So he followed a way. ...

Rise and set of the sun is what we humans view daily. The content of hadith talks about viewing the rising of Sun from the west. Even in Bible the language use is rise and set. The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back to where it rises. (Ecclesiastes 1:5) In the hadith it is said if permission is not given after such daily prostration from the Sun, ...
