Why shouldn’t we listen to Imran Hossien?




can you kindly give more details on your recently issued Fatwa#: 28482 ?

what are the issues that you do not agree with Maulana Imran Hosein, and why do you not recommend that he should be avoided.


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.  


Hereunder are some of the incorrect views of Imran Hossien:

  • He considers some Ahadeeth from Sahih al-Bukhari as fabricated whereas every hadith in Bukhari is Saheeh. For example, he regards the hadith of the marriage of Aisha, radiyallahu anhu, as fabricated.[1] 
  • He states that that all Shias are Muslims[2] whereas many Shias have beliefs that are inconsistent with the fundamental beliefs of Islam.[3]
  • He believes that Ya’jooj and Ma’jooj (Gog and Magog) have already been released in this world[4] while it is clearly mentioned in ahadith that they will be released after the decent of the Prophet Isa, alayhi assalaam.
  • There are many incorrect views of Imran Hossien. The above are just some of his incorrect views.

[1]It clearly mentioned in Sahih Bukhari 5:58:236 that there was a marriage ceremony between the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi was sallam, and Aisha, radiyallahu anha. Yet, Imran Hossien states that no marriage ceremony took place. http://www.imranhosein.org/faq/58-women-in-islam/291-what-was-the-age-of-aisha-when-she-was-married-please-comment-on-her-age.html

In a speech made by him, he clearly mentions that the hadith is fabricated: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw05XUx0CrM
