Beautiful. May Allah reward the Shaykh and the publishers.
Quite a detailed and informative read I must say! May ALLAH Almighty bless Sheikh Akhtar Rida Khan's life. Unfortunately, I have not had a chance to read much works by the Sheikh but he is well educated as his grasp over Usul al-Hadith is quite amazing. without doubt this is a master piece which should be read by everyone as it covers many points of Aqidah!
Also, credit must go to Ihsanica for producing the translation.
A quick question @IhsanicaMedia, any future releases that you can tell us about?
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate the Merciful. All praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. May prayers and salutations be upon the master of the two worlds, our liege lord Muhammad, and upon his pure family, noble Companions, and all who follow his exemplary way.
OF PURE ORIGIN: On the Identity of Prophet Ibrahim's father by Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan al-Azhari:
* Publisher's foreword:
IT IS THE POSITION OF MUSLIMS that the Prophet Muhammad - may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him -,our leigelord and master, is the Pure (al-Tahir) and the Purifying (al-Mutahhir). As such, there is nothing connected with his - may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him - blessed person, form, character, or direct lineage that is impure or tainted.
This small treatise penned by Taj al-Shari'a, Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan, the eponymous scholar and scion of the great reviver (Mujaddid) Imam Ahmad Rida Khan, addresses the purity of the Prophet’s - may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him - forefathers, and in particular the father of Prophet Ibrahim - may peace be upon him - whom many, based on a shallow understanding of Arabic and Quranic exegesis, mistakenly call Aazar and consider a disbeliever.
In addition to proving the purity of Prophet Muhammad’s lineage - may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him - and substantiating that Prophet Ibrahim’s - peace be upon him - father was Tarah, a believer, and not Aazar, his uncle, Sheikh Muhammad Akhtar Rida Khan also skillfully analyzes Arabic syntax and its role in interpreting the Quran, and examines the use of divertive evidence in interpretation. Also discussed here are weak hadith narrated with multiple chains and their acceptability outside of theology and law, anomalous readings of the Quran, and the conditional acceptability of using the scriptures of the People of the Book.
This treatise will undoubtedly prove valuable to any student of Arabic, exegesis, hadith, or prophetic biography, or anyone interested in seeing how a cross section of Islamic disciplines merge in the discussion of areas of modern contention.
