This is a MANTRA is used by Muhammadan scholars, historians as well as Western 'intellectuals' who are Arabists and Islamists. Every such 'tradition' that they mention is post Jahilyiah as created by Muhammad in his Quran and later embellished, exaggerated and elaborated into mythical dimensions by the Ahadith over a period of 300 years or more.
Almost every one of these alleged traditions have been plagiarised, plundered, pirated and/or perverted from the Bible, New Testament, Zoroasterian and Pagan Arabian religions, their Scriptures, their traditions and their fetishes.
The mostly illiterate and unlearned pagan Arabians had neither knowledge of Abraham, Ishmael, the Bible and the New Testament nor had they any traditions associated with them. The Quran itself asserts that they were-
" …ignorant of previous revelations…" in Arabic "… ummioun la ya'lamounal Kitab…".
Even some of the Ahadith corroborate this statement. Yet, these 'theologians' and 'intellectuals' have been deceiving, misleading, mis-representing, contorting and perverting the truth for 1400 years and getting away with it because most people, whether literate or not, do not bother to investigate or study the subjects at hand.
2:78 And there are among them illiterates [Ummyoun]who know not the Book but (see therein their own) desires and they do nothing but conjecture.
3: 75Among the People of the Book are some who if entrusted with a hoard of gold will (readily) pay it back; others who if entrusted with a single silver coin will not repay it unless thou constantly stoodest demanding because they say "There is no call on us (to keep faith) with these ignorant [al ummyeena] (pagans)." But they tell a lie against Allah and (well) they know it.
4:113 But for the Grace of Allah to thee and His Mercy a party of them would certainly have plotted to lead thee astray. But (in fact) they will only lead their own souls astray and to thee they can do no harm in the least. For Allah hath sent down to thee the Book and wisdom and taught thee what thou knewest not (before) [ma lam takoonoo ta'alamu]; and great is the grace of Allah unto thee.
7:157 "Those who follow the apostle the unlettered [al Ummy] prophet whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures); in the law and the Gospel; for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil: he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him honor him help him and follow the light which is sent down with him it is they who will prosper."
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 2215Narrated byUbayy ibn Ka'b
Ubayy told of Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) meeting Gabriel and saying, "I have been sent, Gabriel, to a people who are unlettered, among whom are old women and old men, boys and girls, and men who have never read a book." He replied, "The Qur'an, Muhammad, has been sent down in seven modes."
Tirmidhi transmitted it.
*** If Unlettered meant Illiterate, then there is nor reason for Muhammad to elaborate and explain its meaning. This is not a tautological error but an attempt to explain that Unlettered meant one who does not know previous revelations.
The pagan Arabians had a very primitive religion. They left absolutely nothing either WRITTEN or ORAL that referred to the Bible or any of the characters within it, to substantiate or corroborate any of their alleged 'traditions'.
Unbelievably, the Ahadith themselves show that most of humanity has been duped for 1400 years by the greatest intellectual and theological fraud that has ever been perpetrated on the human psyche and consciousness in its entire history ***
