Justifiying one’s wrong

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: A boy said to another boy (black) in urdu which spells (kala), I said to him dont do that because Allah has created him. He then said “Qaala Rasoolullahi (sallalahu alayhi wasallam) ” He was trying to justify that he didn’t say kala (black) But qala (in Arabic) Rasoolullahi sallalahu alayhi wasallam. And he said that something after Qala Rasolullahi salallahu alayhi wasallam like a hadith and I don’t know if its a real hadith or not maybe he said “Dont disturb someone” something like that and included saying “Dracula” also… then I asked him which hadith there is written “dracula” and I said to him dont make fun of hadith…

Here he made two mistakes

1. By justifying that he said Qala and not kala by using the means of hadith as I mentioned earlier

2. He said dracula also as I described in which manner he said that. Is he still a Muslim?


A: If he did a wrong and tried to justify himself through the wording of the hadeeth then this is a very high level of disobedience and stupidity. Only a jaahil can behave in this manner.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
