    I think you're right. My point was that the meaning, in itself, is valid, and therefore we may give the person(Bacchus) benefit of the doubt.

    AbdalQadir time to move along! will check pm's.

    but that is in the context of wishing Islam for other nonMuslims.

    technically, you're right.

    reality of the situation depends on if the word "human" or "humanity" was slyly inserted to promote a liberal secularist mindset or not. the keller, hanson, yaqoubi, faraz etc. i'd hazard a guess that such "interpretations" are done for the purposes of acquiescing kafirs.

    I think it's valid. Imam Nawawi (rahmatullah alayh), for instance, interpreted the word brother in the narration to mean all humans.

    As many of you already know a Sunni family was run over some days ago in London, Ontario, Canada.

    There have been a number of vigils in remembrance of the deceased and to denounce Islamaphobia in the subsequent days. At one particular vigil a couple days ago, Zahir Bacchus, one of Nuh Keller’s first students and Faraz’s mentor cited the famous hadith: “None of you believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself” but instead of saying “his brother” inserted the word “humanity”. I thought the brotherhood Rasululah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) was referring to in the hadith was the specific one between Muslims and not the general Adamic one between all human beings. Is this a valid interpretation or narration of the hadith or is it spurious?
