The Hour is only known to Allah – Mustafa al-Bughaa
In the sharh of the 40 hadiths of Imam Nawawi called “al-waafi”, the Arabic scholars Dr. Mustafa Dib al-Bughaa and Muhyi ad-Din Mistu wrote on page 19:

The hour and its signs: the knowledge of the time of the day of judgment is specificied with the knowledge of Allah, and he did not reveal it to ANYONE of his creation, whether an angel or a prophet. That is why the Prophet (salllaAllahy alayhi wa sallam) said to Jibril: The one who asked this question does not know more than who is asking the question.

Ahmad Rida Khan is no Muhaqqiq! – Shaykh Lu’ay

September 5, 2015


نشرت جزاك الله خيرا كتاب شرح عقود رسم المفتي بتعليقات الشيخ أحمد رضا خان، هل هو أفضل من تعليقات أبي لبابة؟

Allah reward you! The book “Sharh Uqud Rasm al-Mufti” has been published with the explanatory notes of Shaykh Ahmad Rida Khan. Is it better than the explanatory notes of Abu Lubaba?


Answer by Shaykh Lu’ayy al-Khalili al-Hanafi:

لا أعتقد حقيقة أنه أفضل من تعليقات أبي لبابة، وربما يغضب بعضهم لو قلت: لا أرى احمد رضا خان فيما يكتب محققا

Truthfully I don’t believe it to be better than the explanatory notes of Abu Lubaba. Perhaps some of them would even become angry if I were to say: I don’t consider Ahmad Rida Khan, in what he writes, to be a Muhaqqiq [someone meticulous in their research].
