A true story – Thoughts for Blind Following


Zakariyya ibn Adee rahimahullah narrated that when Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak rahimahullah came to Koofah, he was sick. Then (Imaam) Waki’ee, our companions and the people from Koofah went to him (Ibnul Mubarak).

Then discussion started until they (people from Koofah) mentioned the Nabeedh*. So, Ibnul Mubarak (rahimahullah) started narrating to them the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah(sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) & the traditions of the Sahabahs, the Muhaajirs & the Ansaars from the people of Madeenah.

The Koofis said: No! You narrate to us our narrations & traditions.

Ibnul Mubarak said:al-Hassan ibn Amro al-Faqeemi narrated to us: from Fudhayl ibn Amro: from Ibraheem(Nakhi’ee): he said: People used to say that if the Nabeedh intoxicates, it is haraam to intake again.

Hearing this, those people lowered their heads.

Then Ibnul Mubarak (rahimahullah) said to the one sitting close to him:

Have you ever seen anyone more strange than these people? I narrate to them the traditions of the Messenger of Allaah(sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), his Companions & Tabi’een. However, they don’t care about these. And when I narrate to them the saying of Ibraheem(Nakhi’ee) they lower their heads? (Sunan al-Kubra by Bayhaqee 8/298,299:its chain is Hassan)

Sheikh Zubair Alizai Rahimahullah writes:

The same is the situation of the extreme blind followers, to whome when they are presented the Qur’aan, Ahaadeeth, they close their ears & eyes. And when something is narrated to them about their elders, they get excited.As Allaah says: “Immediately they rejoice”!! (al-Qur’aan Surah az-Zumar v.45)

* Nabeedh = Water in which dates or grapes etc. are soaked and is not yet fermented.
