The Saudi Minister of Islamic Affairs tweets about Sahih Al-Bukhari amid an uproar of Turki Al-Hamad


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) – Amidst the uproar caused by the Saudi writer and political analyst Turki Al-Hamad in his opinion in Sahih Al-Bukhari, Saudi Minister of Islamic Affairs Abdullatif Al Al-Sheikh published a tweet about Sahih Al-Bukhari and Muslim, without explicitly mentioning Al-Hamad or what he said.

Abul-Latif Al-Sheikh wrote in a tweet on his Twitter account: “Al-Nawawi, may God have mercy on him, said in the introduction to the commentary of Sahih Muslim: (The scholars, may God have mercy on them, agreed that the most authentic books after the Holy Qur’an are the two Sahih Bukhari and Muslim. The Ummah received them with acceptance). It will be rewarded and paid well. ”

Al-Hamad was subjected to a wave of criticism after his tweet last Friday, when he saw that Sahih al-Bukhari “contradicts” the Qur’an, saying: “Before we criticize the offensive images of our noble Messenger, peace be upon him, we have to criticize our heritage that provided the living material for these drawings, the first of which is Sahih Al-Bukhari. Through this book, and comparing it with the Holy Quran, I find that it completely contradicts it. ”

The Saudi poet Prince Abdul Rahman bin Musaed commented on the tweet of Al-Hamad by saying: “Doctor, may God grant you peace, your saying that Sahih Al-Bukhari is completely contradictory to the Qur’an is a very extremist opinion. He added: “If we canceled as required by his book, which contains the authentic hadiths and Sunnah of the Prophet, we would have offended our Prophet and his Sunnah more than fees.”

Al-Hamad replied to him, saying: “My brother Abdul-Rahman, and I will not say Your Highness the Prince, so we discussed my culture, and your time is good.” He added: “Before Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Sunan Al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Taymiyyah and others, our people used to pray, fast, and practice their rituals without needing them.”

Turki Al-Hamad continued by saying: “Islam is a great religion, and its greatness lies in its simplicity, and it was not deformed until after entering the sects, and let us remember that a rotten apple corrupts the entire box.”
