Hadith quoted by Wahhabis that our Nabi did commit SHIRK?


Dear Shk Haddad, Its me [private] from Sri lanka. A new ideology is starting to spread in Sri Lanka that our Prophet sallahualahiwasallim had committed SHIRK without his knowledge. (Ma’azallah!)

Its made official on their blog in tamil

The hadith is
الحلف بالكعبة – حديث:‏3733‏
أخبرنا يوسف بن عيسى ، قال : حدثنا الفضل بن موسى ، قال : حدثنا مسعر ، عن معبد بن خالد ، عن عبد الله بن يسار ، عن قتيلة ، امرأة من جهينة : أن يهوديا أتى النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال : إنكم تنددون ، وإنكم تشركون تقولون : ما شاء الله وشئت ، وتقولون : والكعبة ، ” فأمرهم النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا أرادوا أن يحلفوا أن يقولوا : ورب الكعبة ، ويقولون : ما شاء الله ، ثم شئت

Dear Shk Haddad explain to us what is the Thafseer of this Hadith


Alaykum Salam,

Allah Most High Himself said “Allah wa Rasuluh” three dozen times, also “Allah wa mala’ikatahu,” and He swore by many created entities, not in the sense of swearing by them for their own sake, but in the sense of swearing by Himself, their Creator, as shown in the Tafsirs and Allah knows best.

So there was nothing wrong with their language to begin with, but by telling them to change it, the Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) was teaching them and us that when conciliation is harmless, to close the door to objections is better than to be right in an argumentative way, and he was also teaching humbleness both in substance and in

As for the present claim of that the Prophet and/or the Muslims were previously committing shirk then whoever holds such a view is exactly in the same position and level of understanding as the Jew back then.

Note also that the hadith does not say that the Holy Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) told the Muslims to repeat the shahada but simply to slightly alter their language in order to close the door in the face of would-be champions of tawhid past and present (who are in fact burning up with envy and rejection) critiquing him and his Umma.

And Allah knows best. {And it is enough that Allah is Witness Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.}
