Cow meat milk disease

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.


Your Question: Can u please let me know from where this hadith is taken from (Bukhari, Muslim, etc ………..) or the isnaad of it, is it a sahi hadith.

Respected brother, to the best of our knowledge we have not found the above quoted narration from you in any of the authentic and established Books of Sahih Hadeeth…..besides the very Sunnah or practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws) whereby he (saws) allowed the believers to sacrifice a cow and consume its meat is directly against the ‘matan’ or content of the above quoted narration by you. If cow’s flesh was indeed a disease, the Messenger of Allah (saws) would never have allowed the believers to sacrifice cows or consume their meat.


Respected brother, we remind you as we remind ourselves, that one should be extremely careful when quoting something from the Messenger of Allah (saws), and attribute to his blessed name nothing except what is the confirmed truth….for whatever he (saws) said, or did, or allowed is law and an example for the believers until the Day of Judgment. If one invents something from themselves and attributes that falsehood to the Noble Prophet (saws), they will have a grievous penalty indeed!


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.667 Narrated by Abdullah bin Amr

The Prophet (saws) said ‘Whoever tells a lie on me intentionally, will surely take his place in the (Hell) Fire."


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.109 Narrated by Salama

I heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "Whoever (intentionally) ascribes to me what I have not said then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire."


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.217 Narrated by Abu Huraira

The Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever intentionally ascribes something to me falsely, he will surely take his place in the (Hell) Fire.”


If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
