Why should I read this?
In this article by Harriet Sherwood of The Guardian is reporting that the Saudi leadership is taking steps to “eliminate fake and extremist texts” from our books of Hadith in an attempt to “curb extremism”. First of all we are not surprised by this news, Saudi Arabian leaders only care about preserving their ‘royal power’, they don’t care about Islam what so ever. But more importantly, this news is also hypocritical, because Saudi Arabia finances extremist groups whenever it suits their regional political interests. In other words, do Muslims today have an issue with extremists groups, absolutely yes, but the solution has nothing to do with our altering our hadith. Please read and be aware.
