FORGOING STATEMENT CONCERNING ALLAH OR THE PROPHET

 

One of the greatest sins that a person can commit is to make up  a statement concerning Allaah or His Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him], This can come in different ways; 

1. Hiding whatAllaah and His Prophet [peace and blessings of  Allaah be upon him] has revealed of knowledge in order to achieve a goal, 

2. Deliberately giving a different meaning to what Allaah and His Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] has revealed. 

3. Permitting what Allaah and His Prophet [peace and blessings be upon him] has forbidden or forbidding what Allaah  and His Messenger [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon  him] has permitted

4. Saying that Allaah or the Prophet [peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him] has said something though they did not. 

5. Arguing ignorantly about the deen of Islam.  

All of these are major sins in Islam therefore a Muslim must stay away from them. Allaah says;

"And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allaah ... "[Q61 :7] 

The curse of Allaah

 Allaah say;

“Verily, those who conceal  the clear proofs, evidences and  guidance, which We have sent down,  after We have made it clear for the  people in the Book, they are the ones  cursed by AIlaah and cursed  by the cursers.” [Q 2:159]

A place in the Hell-Fire  

Narrated AI Mughira [RA] : I heard the  Prophet saying:

“Ascribing false things to  me is not like ascribing false things to  anyone else. Whosoever tells a lie against  me intentionally then surely let him occupy  his seat in Hell-Fire.’’  [Bukhari] 

Woe unto them! Woe unto them! Woe  unto them!

Allaah says:

“Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say, "This is from Allaah, to purchase with it a  little price! Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn thereby. "[Q 2:79] 

They will never prosper 

 Allaah says;

“And say not concerning that which your tongues put forth falsely: This  is lawful and this is forbidden," so as to  invent lies against AIlaah. Verily, those who invent lies against AIlaah will never prosper.  A passing brief enjoyment [will be theirs] but they will have a painful torment" [Q 16:116 - 117]
