The Holy Quran and the Honorable Traditions of Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him) are the main resources of Islamic Constitution; as Allah (may He be Glorified and Exalted) ensured that the Holy Quran is to remain without any type of distortion since it is His speech, the top resource of Islamic Constitution and it is the eternal miracle that highlights the honesty of Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him) and ensures the verity of his Prophecy and Message. Regarding the Traditions of Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him), witnessed in his speeches and actions, Allah (may He be Glorified and Exalted) did not ensure its safety from distortion as He (may He be Glorified and Exalted) assigned keeping Traditions safe from distortion to the human beings. However, Allah (may He be Glorified and Exalted) facilitated the emergence of some scholars who followed different methodologies to save the Traditions from any distortion. Since Allah (may He be Glorified and Exalted) did not ensure Traditions’ immunity towards fabrications and distortion, some people, throughout history, tried to distort these Traditions or invent some of these traditions through lying on the behalf of Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him) due to different intentions such as gaining personal benefits, being famous among Muslims and trying to undermine Islam by inventing stories and presenting them as Traditions. Therefore, Islamic scholars that are specialized in the Traditions of Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him) organized the Traditions based on its authenticity: Authentic, Good, Weak and Fabricated. Nowadays, it is crystal clear that there is a huge spread of Weak and Fabricated Traditions within Muslim societies and due to the ignorance of many.
Muslims in this issue and its danger, some of these Weak and Fabricated Traditions are met with acceptance by some Muslims for some reasons. Eventually, many people exert massive efforts to spread these Traditions in Internet Forums, Emails and Social Media, ignoring the Authentic.
Traditions of Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him). Therefore, due to the huge danger of this issue and based on the Prophet Muhammad’s speech when he said “Whoever tells lies about me, let him take his place in Hell,” the author of this research will address the issue of Fabricated Traditions by analyzing it, discussing the reasons behind it, addressing the methodologies to recognize it and highlighting the role of Muslim scholars to confront it.
