THE ARABIST AND TRIBALIST RELIGION CONCEPT
There is a controversy about the identity of Agog and Magog who are described as wild and uncivilized creatures. Bukhari, whom the traditionalists declare to be the man whose hadiths are incontestable so much so that a Muslim who refutes even one of the hadiths he has transmitted would be a heretic, along with Tabari, Baghdadi, Balhi, Bayzawi, Nasafi, Nuvayri and Ibn Kathir revered by the traditionalists as well as certain Turks like Asým Efendi and Ahteri Mustafa Efendi all claim that Agog and Magog are Turks. There are awkward and indecent legends that recount that Agog and Magog were the products of the sperm of Adam who had had an ejaculation while dreaming. All these aimed at ascribing a religious character to the customs and manners of the Arabs, sanctifying the Arabic language, and ascribing holiness to the Arab race and vilifying Turks and other races by inventing derogatory hadiths. Hadiths were invented that claimed the superiority of the Arab race over all other human beings (see Ibn Arrak, Tenzihuz Saharia Fil Marfua). They seem to ignore that the enemies of the Prophet, Abu Lahab and Abu Jahil, were Arabs. The army deserters and hypocrites often referred to in the Quran were Arabs. According to the Quran, a person is evaluated on the basis of his devotion and expression of love for his God. Hadiths invented with political interests and racist concerns have been introduced into religion and corrupted the purity of the Quran.
