3) MOSES SLAPPING THE FACE OF AZRAEL THE ANGEL OF DEATH?
Hadith: The Angel of Death came to Moses and said unto him: “Obey your Lord”. Whereupon, Moses slapped his face and punished him. The Angel went to God and said to Him: “You have sent me to a servant of yours who is unwilling to die. He pulled out one of my eyes. ”
This hadith is utterly ridiculous and at the same time is an insult to Moses. A dutiful servant of God would certainly not disobey the messenger of God. Not only in Muslim’s hadith book, which is renowned for being free of error, but in other hadith books also, we read this hadith. How can a book that contains such an absurd account be considered a serious work?
