Do Not Ask The People of The Book

leave a comment »

Al-Bukhari recorded that Ibn `Abbas said:

How can you ask the People of the Book about anything, when your Book that was revealed to the Messenger of Allah is more recent, you read it pure and uncontaminated, it tells you that the People of the Book altered and changed the Book, that they write the Book with their own hands and then say, `This is from Allah,’ to purchace with it a small price Should not the knowledge that you have, prevent you from asking them No, by Allah, we have never seen any of them asking you about what was sent down to you.

وقال البخاري حدثنا موسى بن إسماعيل حدثنا إبراهيم بن سعد أخبرنا ابن شهاب عن عبد الله بن عبد الله عن ابن عباس قال : كيف تسألوا أهل الكتاب عن شيء وكتابكم الذي أنزل إليكم على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أحدث تقرءونه محضا لم يشب وقد حدثكم أن أهل الكتاب بدلوا وغيروا وكتبوا بأيديهم الكتاب وقالوا هو من عند الله ليشتروا به ثمنا قليلا ؟ ألا ينهاكم ما جاءكم من العلم عن مسألتهم ؟ لا والله ما رأينا منهم رجلا يسألكم عن الذي أنزل عليكم
