Khawarij used the verses of Quran on Muslim

  1. Khawarij used the verses of Quran on Muslim


1. Evidence no. 1

Al-Bukhari reported Muallaqan: Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, considered the Khawarij rebels to be the worst of Allah’s creation and he said, “Indeed, they take verses that were revealed about unbelievers and use them against believers.”

Ibn Hajar commented:

The Chain is Authentic. [Fath al Bari (12/286)]

2. Evidence no. 2

Yazid al-Faqir said: This view of the Khwarij (i. e. those who commit major sins and would be eternally doomed to Hell) had obsessed me, and we set out in a large group intending to perform the hajj and then going to the people (for the propagation of the views of the Khwarij). He (the narrator) said: We happened to past by Medina and found there jabir b. ‘Abdullah sitting near a column narrating to the people (the ahadith of) the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him). When he mentioned the inhabitants of Hell, I said: O companion of the Messenger of Allah what is this that thou narrateth, whereas Allah sayeth:” Verily whomsoever Thou shall commit to the Fire, Thou indeed humillateth him” (al-Qur’an, iii. 192) ; and All those who endeavoured to get out of that would be thrown back into it” (al-Qur’an, xxxi i. 20)? So what is it that you say? He said: Have you read the Qur’an? I said: Yes. He said: Have you heard about’ the (exalted) position of Muhammad (may peace be upon him), i. e. to which Allah would raise, him? I said: Yes. He said: Verily the position of Muhammad (may peace be upon him) is that of great glory and that is by which Allah would bring out whornsoever He would wish to bring out. He then described the Path (the Bridge) and the passing of the people over it, and said: I am afraid I may not have remembered (other things) but this much is still in my memory that people would come out of the Hell after having gone into it, and he said: They would come out of it as if they were the wood of the ebony tree. He (the narrator said: They would enter a river, one or the rivers of Paradise, and would bathe in it, and then come out as if they were (white like) paper. We then turned back and said: Woe be upon you! How can this old man tell a lie against the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him)? We turned back (from the views of the Khwarij), and by God every one of us abandoned this (band of Khwarij) except one man. A similar statement has been made by Abu Nu’aim.  (Muslim Book #001, Hadith #0371)


Shaykh Abdul Muhsin alIbaad said “Those people were in confusion who went for Hajj that people will not come out from hell fire if they have done major sin. The verses which were revealed for Kuffar they used them for Muslims, This was the aqeedah of Khawarij. They wanted to spread this creed after the hajj but in the blessed travel (for Hajj) Allah gave them taufeeq to meet with Jabir bin Abdullah ra and He opened the corruption of their understanding of Quran.” Sharah Hadith Jibreel page no. 10]


3. Khawarij used the verses of Quran without understanding of Sahaba

Ubaidullah b. Abu Rafi’, the freed slave of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him), said: When Haruria (the Khwarij) set out and as he was with ‘ali b. Abu Talib (Allah be pleased with him) they said,” There is no command but that of Allah.” Upon this ‘Ali said: The statement is true but it is intentionally applied (to support) a wrong (cause)… (Bukhari Book #005, Hadith #2334)

Today we see people quoting verses of Quran saying the Prophet peace be upon him is omnipresent without quoting its tafseer with Sahaba, Tabiyeen and mufassireen.

Also the verse 4 : 64 was revealed about Jews but the say it’s for Muslims and we should ask help from Prophet peace be upon him.
