Those, who study the Islamic scriptures with open mind, would never fail to call to question the mental caliber of educated Muslims, particularly of Islamic scholars, as to how they could accept the extreme level of lunacy of their scriptures? Do they really accept such absurdities or are simply ignorant of their scriptures? Here is one such lunacy that I recently came across from the hadiths.
EXPIATION FOR 7 DAYS’ SINS IS DAILY FIVE PRAYERS FOR ONE WEEK
A few hadiths state that sins commuted by a Muslim in one week can be expiated by his offering of five prayers a day from Friday to Friday:
- Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Five prayers and from one Friday prayer to (the next) Friday prayer is an expiation (of the sins committed in between their intervals) if major sins are not committed. (Sahih Muslim/ Book 2/ Hadith 448)
- Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (way peace be upon him) said: Five prayers and one Friday prayer to (the next) Friday prayer are expiatious (for the sins committed in the intervals) between them. (Sahih Muslim/ Book 2/ Hadith 449)
EXPIATION OF 10 DAYS’ (7 DAYS + BONUS 3 DAYS) SINS FOR DAILY FIVE PRAYERS FOR 1 WEEK
