3) KISSING ONE’S WIFE DOES NOT VIOLATE ONE’S FAST
The first contradictory hadith: The Prophet kissed his wife when he was fasting.
Ibn Kutayba-Defene of Hadith
The second contradictory hadith: When he was asked if one’s fast would be considered violated, the Prophet answered in the affirmative.
Ibn Kutayba-Defense of Hadith
These hadiths figure also in the Kutub-ý Sitte, the famous six-volume collection of hadiths. We came across these hadiths that tried to reconcile contradictory hadiths in Ibn Kutayba’s book. The illogicality and contradictoriness of hadiths can plainly be seen in Ibn Kutayba’s book. The Prophet kisses his wife according to one hadith, while he does not do so according to another. At least one of them must be false. To take both of them as true would be superfluous and would claim that the Prophet is a senile old man.
