Islamic Creed

What the Prophet Forbids Is Same as What Allah Forbids

Question?


I heard about a hadith that went like this: the prophet said, “I wanted to ban the ghilla, but I saw the Romans and the Persians do it and it did not hurt them, go ahead and do it. ” Our rules in Islam come from Allah, why did he say to want to forbid us to make ghilla, but did not do it? I know that it may be inspired by Allah, but should not this inspiration be filled with forgiveness of this act?

Perfect praise to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is no other worthy worship than Allah and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) is his slave and his messenger.

The decisions of the Shariah were received from Allah Almighty and also from his prophet Sallallahuah’Alayhi wa Sallam (may Allah extol his mention). All that the Prophet (salla Allahu’alayhi wa sallam) has forbidden (Allah will exalt his mention) takes the same status as that which Allah has forbidden, because he is sallallahu alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) is His messenger and is entrusted with His revelation, so that the prophet sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) can not lie to Allah.

In his book, Allah rebuked those who did not forbid that the prophet sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah exalt his mention) forbidden; Allah says (meaning): {… and who do not regard as unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made illegal.} [Quran 9:29]

In addition, Al-Miqdaam ibn Maidi Karb al-Kindi may tell him that the Prophet peace be upon him says: “Soon will come a time when a man will rest on his pillow, and when one of my Ahadith is told to him, he will say, ‘The Book of Allah is (sufficient) between us and you, whatever it says to be allowed, we will take it as a license and what it says to be forbidden, In truth, all that the Messenger of Allah has forbidden is like what Allah has forbidden. “[Ahmed and Ibn Maajah]
As for the Hadith, you mentioned “I was about to ban Gheelah, but I remembered that the Romans and the Persians practiced it without any harm being done to their children”. [A Muslim] Gheelah is when a man has sex with his wife while she is breastfeeding a child.

At first, the Prophet Salla Allahu’Alayhi wa Sallam (may Allah extol his mention) with his own Ijtihaad (judgment) was about to ban Gheelah, lest the breastfed child be hurt. It was because it was common to them (Arabs) that if the husband had sex with his wife while breastfeeding, the child would be hurt, so that the Arabs hated and feared him. However, when he sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) saw that the (children of) Persians and Romans were not hurt by this milk, he refrained from forbidding Gheelah because it is the reason the ban was requested. bad) did not exist anymore. Sometimes the Prophet sallallahuah’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) would do Ijtihaad according to his prevailing judgment, but he was never left (not corrected by Allah without correction) when he made a bad Ijtihaad.

Perhaps the wisdom behind him sallallaahu’alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) to make Ijtihaad a matter and not to be approved about it, is to show his loyalty by transmitting all that is revealed to him and that he immediately abandons his opinion when something contrary is revealed to him and he transmits it to his nation. He never disdained to do it and was never arrogant (and refrained from correcting his bad Ijtihaad). He sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam (may Allah extol his mention) filled his confidence, passed on the message, and informed his nation until his death.

Allah knows best.
