Quran Self-Combustion Part 3,
Absurd cases of Abrogation, the ayah that was abrogated inside a goat’s belly
In part 2 we saw examples of peaceful ayahs abrogated by violence ayahs specifically about “Compulsion in religion” and following is the link
According to Islamic scholars, abrogation in quran are categorized into 3 types, I will use very simple terms to explain as following
The three types of Abrogation
First: What have been abrogated both lawwise and textwise
Meaning the Ayah was completely abrogated so the law or doctrine came in it is canceled and so is the recite meaning the text of the ayah, so the current Quran will not have this ayah anymore
Second: The text is gone but the law stays
So the doctrine, sharia law or rule exists but the recite or text is gone, not in Quran today
Third: The text exists but the doctrine is not HALAL anymore
So the ayah are in the Quran today but it is abrogated by another ayah in the Quran. So the law or doctrine of this abrogated is not applicable anymore as the abrogating ayah has now an overruling law that canceled the first.
Now in the three types Muslims will claim that a Quran Ayah can only be abrogated by another Quran ayah, so supposedly hadith can not abrogate quran, but is that the case always???? We will talk about that in later continuation for this series of articles
In this article we will give example of the first type and near future we will give examples for second and third.
Example of First : Ayah of breastfeeding of the grownups
Not to be confused by infants breastfeeding, it is a special law given to allow women to be alone with men that the grownup female needs to breastfeed the grown male so it is then HALAL to stay alone together
And I am not concerned about the absurdity of the law but my interest is the abrogation case behind it, so what is abrogation case behind it?
We will provide the references for that now
The Ayah that was abrogated in the goat’s belly
Sunan Ibn Majah » The Chapters on Marriage – كتاب النكاح » Hadith 1944
It was narrated that ‘Aishah said:
The Verse of stoning and of breastfeeding an adult ten times was revealed, and the paper was with me under my pillow. When the Messenger of Allah died, we were preoccupied with his death, and a tame sheep came in and ate it.
Grade: Hasan (Darussalam)
ٍSo the ayah existed in the Quran until Muhammad died but a goat ate it, but I thought abrogation must be inspired to Muhammad, so who abrogated that after Muhammad death????
The adults breastfeeding Ayah was abrogated after Muhammad death!
Sunan Abi Dawud » Book of Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah) » Hadith # 2062
Chapter: Does Breastfeeding Less Than Five Times Establish Fosterage?
A’ishah said “In what was sent down in the Qu’ran ten suckling’s made marriage unlawful, but they were abrogated by five known ones and when the Prophet (ﷺ) dies, these words were among what was recited in the Qur’an.”
Grade: Sahih (Al-Albani)
And before someone say Oh Abi Dawud is not good enough, hay Sheikh Al Albani said that this hadith is Sahih, who are you to defy Sheikh Al Albany???? And the hadith are in several hadith books and it is also in Sahih Muslim any more excuses?????
Here is the same typical hadith in Sahih Muslim
Now based on that we ask the Muslim those questions
1- How come that the Muslims say the Quran is preserved?
2- If only Quran can abrogate Quran, then what Ayah abrogated adults breastfeedings??
3- Muhammad died while this ayah was still in the Quran, to whom then the inspiration came to abrogate that ayah? Can an ayah be abrogated after Muhammad death?
4- Did this inspiration to abrogate came to the goat for example???
