Reader comment on item: Europe's Anti-Immigration Left

Submitted by Prashant, Mar 8, 2019 at 23:25

Dear Dr Pipes, During my research on aspects of Islamic life I stumbled upon yet another hilarious hadith. The reference is to hadith Number 6665 in book 37. The book 37 is said to be the book of repentance. This hadith is hilarious because in it Allah and/or Muhammad says that on the day of judgment, Allah will make available a free Jew or Christian to each Muslim to take their place in hell. Here is a translation that I found of this hadith:

Abu Musa' reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: When it will be the Day of Resurrection Allah would deliver to every Muslim a Jew or a Christian and say: That is your rescue from Hell-Fire.

Thank God, Muhammad and Allah did not know about Hindus otherwise Allah would have offered at least a dozen Hindus to each Muslim to go to hell instead of the Muslim.

Submitting....
