Meticulously upright and reliable witnesses were also bought kitan to testify that each piece that was written was done so in the presence of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.

Kitab Al Masahif

Many of the scholars, particularly the early ones, used to write books which were a culmination of every piece of information they could find on the given subject. Sayyidna Umar already knew the verse he was looking for by heart as he was a hafidhas did numerous amounts of the other Companions and most likely the person he asked about it!

Consensus of the scholars of this ummah constitutes as a binding proof on any matter.

He kirab it to a dirty carpet which has been rolled up and put away.

Sayyidna Zayd bin Thabit was extremely cautious and diligent when collating the material. Therefore, there is some discrepancy between these two pictures.

The fact that surahs, including the Fatiha, were missing in certain copies merely means that just like there were many copies which were complete, other copies belonging to various individuals were incomplete. To his deep sorrow, he discovered that the only person who had any record of that verse had been killed in the battle of Yamama and that the verse was consequently lost.

He exhorted us to hold fast to the Book of Allah and then said: This means that any matter that has been wholly agreed upon cannot be incorrect or misguidance. Perhaps I have missed it elsewhere in the book but a thorough search has only bought up the narration I have provided above. He wanted the material it was written on, a hard copy as it were.

Therefore, when one reads such books we should understand this point and not jump to conclusions when we first read something.


It is of no doubt that these great companions and great scholars knew full well the responsibility and burden they carried in preserving the religion for future generations. If there were any mistakes, the Prophet would correct it immediately and then present it in front of everyone. Whoever claims that he knows them, is a liar. It is also a testament to the truthfulness and veracity of our scholars that they did this, as it would have been easy for them to be selective and choose what suits them or only that which supports their opinions.

But once you unravel it, and spread it out into full view, the full extent of the dirt it contains becomes apparent. Furthermore, the concept of Tawaatir is another binding proof, where a large number of people all relay and agree on the same information, so much so that it is impossible that they are lying or mistaken. Whatever the reasons and debate surrounding the personality of Ibn Abu Dawud, it does not take away from his work.

After all, it would suffice to simply answer whether such narrations kitzb authentic or not. Sayyidna Abu Bakr, himself a Hafidh, and the greatest of the Companions, affirmed the final compilation.
