SOME PROMINENT HADITH FABRICATORS

JEWISH PARABLES AND PROMINENT FABRICATORS
The Jews who converted to Islam took with them a good many parables to Islam under the guise of hadiths. Although the general contention is that this was a consequence of their attempt at corrupting Islam, one may be inclined to conjecture that they could not get rid of their ancient beliefs and customs or that they intended to give Islam a Judaistic character. Ibn Khaldun speaks as follows in his Mukaddima: “Commentaries of transmitted hadiths contained everything, whether true or false, accepted or denied. The reason was the Arabs were not versed in literature and scholarship. They distinguished themselves in ignorance and the Bedoin characteristics. When people asked them about the mystery of the universe, they consulted first those who had been given books before them and provided answers accordingly. Among them figure such personages as Kab al Ahbar, Wahb Ibn Munabbih and Abdullah b. Salam. Commentaries of hadiths were full of hadiths transmitted by such men. The interpreters had been careless in filling up their books with the commentaries of hadiths.”
