A. Narrations from the Jews that have found themselves in Muslim books of hadith.
11. Give at least 3 reasons why the hadith reported by the Muslim Scholar Ibn Ishaaq that 960 Jews from the tribe of Banu Qurayza were killed under the command of the Holy Prophet (SAW) is totally unreliable.
ATLEAST THREE OF THE FOLLOWING:
• Other Famous Muslim Scholars (such as Malik ibn Anas) have reported that Ibn Ishaaq used 2 descendants from the Banu Qurayza tribein the chain of narrators for this particular hadith. These descendants of Banu Qurayza are more than likely to have glorified the event for personal gain in order to make themselves look oppressed under Muslim rule.
• Many Muslim Scholars have reported that Ibn Ishaaq is a completely unreliable authority on narrating any incident pertaining to Jewish History as he is known to have glorifed the Jews in his narrations for personal gain such that he could gain valuable knowledge from the Jewish scholars at the time.
• All other major narrators of hadith do not mention this hadith at all, therefore making it a very weak and unreliable hadith.
• The Holy Quran teaches us that you cannot burden the soul of a person with the actions of another. Therefore given that the Holy Prophet (SAW) is an embodiment of the Holy Quran he would never contradict this and punish a whole tribe for the actions of a few.
• In Jewish history a story exactly the same as that of the alleged massacre of Banu Qurayza is mentioned therefore making it quite likely that this story has been inserted into Islamic narrations to make it look like a massacre took place, when in fact it never did.
