Abduljabbar wanted to hide behind some distorted and concocted sayings. Even if there are sources, he will not dare reveal their sources to discredit Bukhari, Muslim, and most prominent Muslim scholars and even the Prophet’s companions. He concocted naked lies against the Holy Prophet directly, but claiming that he was defending the Holy Prophet! What a twisted-childish mentality.
In reality, what he was trying to do was not a direct attack on the personality of the Noble Prophet; it was indirect. This is because he accused others of saying what he said. He was asked to SHOW just a SINGLE line, where such lies were reported, but he woefully failed to do that. This is the reason why some of his sympathisers feel like he holds some valid arguments.
The problem is that most Muslims have forsaken Islamic Studies for a long time. They resort to google-google is inadequate for in-depth learning – it is a teach yourself style. This cannot take a real Islamic student anywhere. Someone needs to go to a real school.
Abduljabbar has eventually met his Waterloo. He asked for it and got it. He said he was prepared to meet all the scholars in the world to defend whatever people find heretic in his sermons. Therefore, those who try to defend him are now telling us that he wasn’t prepared. He said he was ready at first lie; he later realised his fall and said he wasn’t. These blanket followers accept whatever rubbish he spat. I pitied him, but I pitied those who felt and hoped he would win. It is a clarion call to all of us not to delve into Islamic affairs anyhow. We try very hard to know our areas of specialisation but take Islamic teachings for granted, thinking that we can manipulate them the way we manipulate our followers.
Another point that shows the super-amazing-human-position of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) was that yesterday’s sitting was more of vindication to the most revered Islamic Muhaddithin – Bukhari and Muslim – who Abduljabbar sought to malign. He has been insulting them, the way I never heard anyone insulting his respected father, despite the sectarian differences. We still have respect for his father, whom even Sheikh Gumi admitted was a great scholar. May Allah have mercy on both of them. Abduljabbar thought he could go scot-free by insulting Bukhari and Muslim and even Anas bn Malik, not knowing that Allah will vindicate, protect and defend them. Allah says, “Inna lanansuru rusulana wallaziyna aamanu”, we will surely help our messengers and those who believe […]. Bukhari, Muslim and all those who Abduljabbar ignorantly and mercilessly abused were clearly assisted, defended and vindicated by Allah the almighty through his servants.
It was not only Abduljabbar who hate Islam/some Ahadith which stop them from doing bad. I am amazed by how these poor victims of Nigerian corruption think. With or without Bukhari and Muslim, they are already doomed. With or without Bukhari and Muslim, they are not enjoying life. Such people should focus on their insecurity and kidnappings, lack of good electricity, and then return to tarnish Islam’s image ignorantly.
It is now up to those who rant and insist on mischief even after seeing clear and undeniable proofs beyond any reasonable and even unreasonable doubts. Some accepted the truth wholeheartedly, while others insist on their mischief and being “strong-headed”. This shows the diversity of human understanding and the sincerity/insincerity of individual mortals. Some agree quickly, while others will never agree. Allah says: innal laziyna haqqat alaihim kalimatu rabbika layu’minuwn. Walau jaa’at’hum kullu aayatin hatta yarawul azabal aliym. Some will never agree until when they see real punishment and disastrous ending.
To those who keep beating about the bush on the chairman of the occasion, the timing, lack of live broadcast, Abduljabbar wiping buckets of sweat, not allowing Abduljabbar to go and pee while he practically show the signs of that need and many other baseless and silly excuses should go and complain to Baba Ganduje. Such and some will never understand.
I am happy that many people accept this with transparent and open minds. Some hoped that Abduljabbar won. But, alhamdulillah, he didn’t, and he woefully failed. I am happy because I see the shameful end of two – most recent – people with blasphemous dispositions. One is in faraway France. He received a heavy and dirty slap which was equal to his position, while the other received a super intellectual blow which shattered his many years of madness.
The holy Prophet (S.A.W) is a human being like no other. Allah promised to protect his mention anywhere. Abduljabbar manipulated things beyond what can be accepted. And in this case, there is no “moderate” or “neutral” stand. It is like what Bush said, “it is either you belong to us, or you belong to the terrorists”.
May the Almighty Allah continue to help the truth even when everyone is against it, amen. Abduljabbar – the cave owner – dug his grave, and I hope he alone would fall into it. But, unfortunately, he failed, and wallahi, we are happy, alhamdulillah.
