Ahadith on "youth" contradicting the Noble Quran

(1) Does the look of one's face make that person bad or good? Here is a Hadith on the young and old. I have just two words to describe it - crazy 'n' funny.

The following hadith falsely attributed to the Prophet (S) says: "the Messenger of Allah (s.w.a.) has said: 'The best of your youth are those who resemble your old people and the worst of your old people are those who resemble your young people.' ”
I'm not sure who has narrated or written the above Hadith.  It has the style of a typical Sunni Hadith and most likely it's been narrated by Abu Huraira as I've read several narrations of his expressing his obsession for being youthful.  Bukhari and al-Muslim Hadiths are full of Abu Huraira's insane babblings on "youth."  So the above narration is surely from one of those collections.
I'm also sure you must have already perceived the gaping discrepancy of this Hadith.
Allah makes the face of each person the way it pleases Him. There are some people who age well (without undergoing any cosmetic procedures of course) while some age fast and at a fairly young age may look a lot older than their age. Either way, spiritually and morally it carries no significance. A person having good age but looking younger or young can be a very sincere believer, and someone young but looking middle aged or older can have a weak faith and the character of a jerk.  So, the above quoted hadith is senseless rubbish.
And now read the following one. It's from the collections of Bukhari, al-Muslim, Tirmidhi and Bayhaqi. It clearly contradicts the one quoted above .... hadith contradicting hadith.
'God does not judge according to your bodies and appearances but He scans your hearts and looks into your deeds.
(2) The following two false hadiths not only contradict the Quran, but also apparently contradict each other. Another case of hadith contradicting hadith.
Bukhari Hadith 4:538. The Messenger of Allah (s.w.a.) has said: “The person who seeks knowledge while in his youth is similar to the act of inscribing something upon a rock; while the person who seeks knowledge while he is old is similar to the act of writing something upon the water.”
This hadith insinuates that seeking knowledge at a young age is far more useful because it stays as part of one's character permanently, while seeking knowledge at an old age cannot be retained for long. Thus, it refers that quest for knowledge at a young age is more positive.
Now check the other one below. Not sure exactly which collection it belongs to, but most likely Bukhari and al-Muslim.
The Messenger of Allah (s.w.a.) has said: “If a person who does not seek knowledge while he is youth, but rather goes to seek it when he becomes old and dies in this state, he dies as a martyr [Shahīd].”
As we've seen, just now one hadith stated that obtaining knowledge at a young age is better and now another one says that even if a person does not seek knowledge when young and instead seeks it at an old age will make him a martyr on his death.
A Hadith fan might try to justify this saying that it refers to the efforts of an old person seeking knowledge despite the fraility of old age and that's why calls him a martyr at death. Okay fine, but neither of the two hadiths hint on "efforts" of elderly people. The first one clearly insinuates that it's pretty useless for an old person to seek knowledge because they won't be able to retain it (probably because memory gets weaker with age). But the second one head-on applauds an old person seeking knowledge to the extent of making him a martyr when he dies .. even if he neglected his duty of acquring knowledge when young. This is surely confusing for readers. It's damned confusing for me. To conclude, my question would be - does the Hadith consider it worthwhile for old people to seek knowledge or not? Yes or no. Can any hadith doctor reading this post come up with an answer?
(3)   Another "youth"  hadith totally contradicting Surah Al-Kahf.  From the name of the narrtor, I presume that it's a Shiia hadith.
Imām Ja'far ibne Muhammad as-Sadiq (a.s.) said the following to Sulaymān ibne Ja'far Al-Hadhalī: “O’ Sulaymān, what is meant by a young person [Al-Fatā]?” He said, “May I be sacrificed for your sake. In our opinion, a young person [Al-Fatā] is a youth [Al-Shābb].” The Imām said to me, “However you should know that surely the Companions of the Cave [Aṣḥābul Kahf] were all old people, however Allah refers to them as youth who have true faith?! O’ Sulaymān, the one who believes in Allah and has consciousness of Him is a young person.”
Another narration by the same narrator on the same topic says:
Imām Ja'far ibne Muhammad as-Sadiq (a.s.) said to a man: “What is meant by a young person [Al-Fatā] in your estimation?” The man replied, “A youth.” The Imām (a.s.) replied, “No, the young person [Al-Fatā] is the true believer. Surely the Companions of the Cave [Aṣḥābul Kahf] were all old people, however Allah, Glory and Greatness be to Him, called them youth who believed in Him.”
The above Hadiths are based on an incident mentioned in Surah Al-Kahf  (The Cave, 18th Chapter of the Quran) from Verses 10 to 26. It's about a group of young believing men who (along with their pet dog) escaped persecution from the disbelieving people of their community and sought refuge in a cave where Allah protected them and their dog for a very long time. Allah clearly mentions of them as "young," that is, young of age. Allah gives us no reason to think that these believing people who hid in the cave were old and referred as young on grounds of their piety, as presumed by this hadith narrator. Please check Verses 10 to 26 of this Surah and see for yourself if there are any references to their being old.  None at all. Secondly, unlike the views of the hadith writer, Allah gives us no reason to think that earthly youth is something better than being old. Allah does not refer nor hint anywhere in the Quran that a believer (regardless of age) always remains young or youthful in the Sight of Allah. The ideas expressed in the above ahadith are only the figments of imagination of this imam .. and certainly not truthful.

The Marie Antionette of Jordan

These two are fast becoming the Marie Antionette and Louis XVI of Jordan .... corrupt and sly upto their necks, they are going haywire stealing the country blind under cover of "serving the people." Their brigandry has made inflation a serious problem in Jordan. Items of daily use are hardly affordable by the common people.

Both Rania and Abdullah are damned lucky that unlike the 18th century French, the present-day Jordanians are generally a lot more docile. Otherwise, the time for a revolution (not a revolt but a revolution) had long been ripe in that cesspool called Jordan.

Soon after the fall of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, more than 35 leaders of Jordan's main Bedouin tribes published an open letter addressed to Abdullah II accusing his wife, Rania Yasin, of gross corruption and bluntly stating the "king is illegal."

"We call on the king to return to the treasury land and farms given to the [queen's] Yasin family. The land belongs to the Jordanian people," the letter demanded.  However, the greedy king and queen have returned nothing so far of what rightfully belongs to the Jordanian people.

The letter further warned that Jordan "will sooner or later face the flood of Tunisia and Egypt due to the suppression of freedoms and looting of public funds." It endorsed several of the demands expressed by the Islamist opposition.
The queen often appears on the covers of gossip magazines with endless comment on her glittering lifestyle and overly expensive wardrobe.  Her lavish 40th birthday bash in August 2011 at the Wadi Rum desert was rude enough even to make the humble Jordanians quite sick.
Quoting a few very important excerpts from Mary Ann Sieghart's article:
"Six hundred guests were flown in from all over the world. Two giant figure‘40’s were beamed on to mountainous outcrops — although the neighbouring villages don’t even have electricity. Locals still speak of the water used to dampen down the sand so that the guests could walk more easily, though there were desperate water shortages nearby ...."
Fares Al-Fayez a senior figure in the Bani Sakher tribe was not afraid to speak: "She’s spending a lot of money on clothes, jewellery and shoes. Some people say she’s like Imelda Marcos. Then there was her birthday party. Poor people see that — they have eyes — and this hurts their feelings. I want the king to stop her. Some people spend hundreds of millions and others have nothing to eat but bread and tea. It’s painful and sad.
A Jordanian journalist, who asked not to be named for fear of reprisals, said " .. She lost any connection with the people when Nicole Kidman and Naomi Campbell became important to her. The expenditure is not fine. The exposure is not fine."
The power starved and luxury loving queen seems to have lost all sense of balance and tact. Mesmerized in her very high lifestyle with elites and her Hollywood celebrity friends around the world, she couldn't care less how selfish she appears or how unconnected she is from the Jordanian people.
The eyes of the Jordanian people have now opened up to the extent that they are able to see the glaring similarity between their queen and Marie Antoinette, the corrupt and disgraced 18th century French queen. While the West praises the queen of Jordan, it's a very different story at home. Contemptuous comparisons between Rania Yasin and Marie Antionette are getting more and more common in Jordan.

Another serious allegation says that she's become recklessly nosy and interfering in politics .. something which only adds fuel to the fire in the eyes of the Jordanian people. According to Sieghart's article, a European journalist recently went to Jordan to interview the king.  He discovered that his wife insisted on being present at the interview.  Not just that, but she also kept interrupting and contradicting her busband's comments.

She is being accused of massive favoritism not only towards her own family but also toward friends and acquaintances. Jordanian people say that she's directly involved in appointing ministers and local politicians. Many of her close friends and associates have ended up getting top jobs despite their lack of merits. A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood party in Jordan said: "She is the wife of a king and a citizen — no more than that. We don’t want her to have power. But she goes around inside the kingdom and abroad. She gives and she takes and she forbids. We don’t like that." The Jordanians complain that the queen has granted Jordanian citizenship to thousands of Palestinians during the last few years, creating a crunch in the job market for the Jordanians which they certainly don't appreicate. They are frowning with a feeling that they are being alienated on their own land.

Even the young and liberal Jordanians sound pretty disgusted. A young Jordanian who recently organized the country's reform protests through twitter spoke up: "The queen is not allowed to get involved politically in the country. She’s only the wife of the king. We’re standing against the queen because of her interference in political issues. She’s using her position as the wife of the king and making business all the time with her family. Look at her brother, for instance. Where did he get all his money from?"

The Marie Antoinette of Jordan is now engulfed with stories of nepotism, corruption, "looting the country" and wasting millions of dollars of public fund to improve and ciruclate her personal image abroad while the common Jordanians literally starve.

With so many allegations and at unfavorable times when a wave of unrest is sweeping across the Middle-East, one would expect a corrupt monarchy to at least mantain a low profile.  But 'Marie and Louis' haven't been able to do that either.   The decadent law of a minimal of three years in prison for critisizing the "royalty" still stands firm in the country.  A Jordanian website which published stories of the Queen's corruption was immediately ordered to remove those contents.  When it refused, the website was shut down.  This isn't the only such incident.  Scores of critics have complained of being systematically intimidated and harassed.

To further dupe the Jordanian people, the "royal" crooks of Jordan have forged a phoney family tree calling themselves descendents of the "Hashmite" family, also appearing on Jordanian stamps. 

By now, Jordan has already been plundered so relentlessly by its "royals" that even if by some stroke of fabulous luck Abdullah II is kicked out, what precisely will he lose?  Basically nothing, except his "royal" title and that of his wife.  Their luxuries will remain intact no matter where they live in exile.  With all those billions of dollars stashed up in the US, UK, Switzerland and Dubai by swindling the Jordanian national treasury and faithfully serving the Western intelligensia, Mr. & Mrs. Abdullah and several generations of their family will continue rolling and floating on riches throughout their temporary earthly lives.

The truth about the fascist Mostafa Kemal "Ataturk"

Mostafa Kemal "Ataturk" who toppled the Ottoman Empire and grabbed power with the help of the imperialists was born in Greece. Those Greeks who know the history of their country and the history of Turkey will not hesitate to confirm that Mostafa Kemal was not just a gay, but he was also ethnically a Jew. He was from the Jewish (Doenmeh) family in the city of Salonica (also known as Thessaloniki) in Greece. This was a heavily populated Jewish city until the end of WWII. Mostafa Kemal attended an orthodox Jewish school which was run by a Doenmeh religious leader named Simon Zvi.

The Hebrew journalist, Itamar Ben-Avi, in his autobiography, proves that the "Father" of secularist Turkey, Gen. Mostafa Kemal Attaturk’s father was a Doenmeh and that Mostafa Kemal was never ashamed of his Jewish background.  More on this a little later.

The secret Jewish sect called Doenmeh (or the crypto Jews) consists of the descendants of those Jews who were expelled from Spain in the 16th century and given shelter in Turkey by the Ottoman Sultans. Many of these Jews followed the 17th century false Jewish messiah "Sabbatai Zwi" and became "Sabbatean Jews", in other words "Doenmeh". One of the rituals the Doenmehs observed was outwardly pretending to be Muslims but inwardly believing in the Jewish faith and following Sabbatai Zwi as their messiah.

Mostafa Kemal's goal was to make Turkey secular under the mask of "Turkish nationalism." This hardline despot was a long serving British / Zionist agent. He received extensive training from them to infiltrate into the Ottoman Empire. There were many 'secret Jews' called Doenmehs, who had hidden their Jewish background and posed as Turkish patriots in order to mislead the Turkish people and snatch power from the Muslims. The Doenmehs took over the Ottoman Empire, disintegrated it, and then established a new regime called "Turkish Republic." The leader of the new regime, Mustafa Kemal, was an ardent Doenmeh (or secret Jew). In order to conceal his Doenmeh identity, he adopted the last name of "Ataturk", which means "Father of Turks". This story is never taught in Turkish schools, and never allowed to be mentioned to the media. Not even a single word! Because of the enormous cover-ups, Mostafa Kemal's official biographies are shrouded in secrecy with plenty of inconsistent information. No one knows what his real name was, but it surely wasn't "Mostafa Kemal."

After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, these Turkish Jews (Mostafa Kemal their leader) controlled Turkey for a long time.   Only since the last 10 years or so, the influence of the Doenmehs has been diminishing after the rise of the Mr. Erdogan's Islamist AK Party. But their power has not yet been fully abolished.  The Turkish army in particular, which is the strongest institution in the country, still consists of the descendents of many Doenmehs of the past.  Mostafa Kemal recruited plenty of Turkish Jews in the military.  Almost all military generals of Turkey since the illegitimate establishment of secular regime were Doenmehs or crypto Jews.  The Doenmehs still control Turkey through the country's Army.  They and their small group of supporters have carried out four unsuccessful coup attempts against PM Erdogan's Islamist government since it came to power in 2003.

Mostafa Kemal tried very hard to strip Turkey of its religion and culture by steering the country closer to the West and away from the Muslim block. It is vital to World Jewry to prevent the Muslims of Turkey from taking back their nation and their faith, and aligning themselves with their Muslim neighbors. The Doenmehs will fight hard to maintain a firm Jewish grip on Turkey and force Muslims to obey Europe and Israel, and betray their Islamic faith and their co-religionists in Iran, Syria, Palestine, Lebanon, etc.

One of the plots of Mostafa Kemal was to abandon the Turkish language.  For this purpose he introduced the new Turkic language with English alphabets as the country's official language, and the illegalization of the old Turkish language with the Arabic/Aramaic script.

But fortunately, the veil under which Kemal Ataturk was hiding has now to a large extent been removed in almost all spheres except the powerful Turkish military.  Turkish Muslims loved their Faith and were denied freedom for a long time.  Throughout their school and college days, they were taught to love and glorify this hateful and ruthless dictator who took over their country with the help of the colonial powers to un-Islamize the society.  But the Turks hav now sensed the imperialistic game and Mostafa Kemal's role in it as the agent of the imperialists with 'important assignments' in Turkey.  By far the majority of Turkish people detest this man in silence.  Only the Turkish military still remains secular, a legacy of its Doenmeh leader, Mostafa Kemal.

A very informative book titled "The Secret Jews" authored by Dr. Joachim Prinz and published by Random House in 1973 mentions in its page no.122: "..The revolt of the Young Turks in 1908 against the regime of Sultan Abdul Hamid began among the intellectuals of Salonika. It was from there that the demand for a constitutional regime originated. Among the leaders of the revolution which resulted in a more modern government in Turkey were Djavid Bey and Mustafa Kemal. Both were ardent ‘doenmehs’ [Jew]. Djavid Bey became minister of finance; Mustafa Kemal became the leader of the new regime and he adopted the name of Ataturk. His opponents tried to use his ‘doenmeh’ background to unseat him, but without success. Too many of the young Turks in the newly formed revolutionary cabinet prayed to Allah but had as their prophet Shabtai Zvi, the Messiah of Smyrna."

There is an interesting piece of evidence from the autobiography of the Hebrew journalist, Itamar Ben-Avi, published in the New York Sun by Hillel Halkin in his article "Ataturk's Turkey Overturned." Ben-Avi "described in his book a chance meeting on a rainy night in the late winter of 1911 in the bar of a Jerusalem hotel with a young Turkish captain. Tipsy from too much arak, the captain confided to Ben-Avi that he was Jewish and recited the opening Hebrew words of the Shema Yisra'el or "Hear O Israel" prayer, which almost any Jew or Doenmeh — but no Turkish Muslim — would have known. Ten years later, Ben-Avi wrote, he opened a newspaper, saw a headline about a military coup in Turkey, and in a photograph recognized the leader that the young officer he had met the other night." This article is an eye-opener. Don't miss it.

Anatolia was the former name for Turkey. The same article in New York Sun further states:

'The following statement is from dictator Mostafa Kemal: "If the British are going to assume the responsibility for Anatolia, they will need the co-operation of experienced Turkish governors to work under them. What I want to know is the proper quarter to which I can offer my services in that capacity.” - Source:  "Ataturk, The Rebirth of a Nation." '

Presently about 1.5 million Doenmehs reside in Turkey, mainly in the country's western cities like Istanbul and Izmir.  Many Doenmehs immigrated to Israel after its establishment in 1948, prior to which the Doenmeh population of Turkey was a lot more.  Thus, the so-called "Secular Republic of Turkey" was one of the first states in the world to recognize Zionist Israel. Because of the power and influence of the Turkish Army, large chunks of taxes paid by the hardworking Muslims of Turkey are swindled and sent to the Jewish state to supplement the needs of Zionist Israel.

The story of Dajjal (or anti-Christ)

How did the story of Masih ad-Dajjal come about in Islam? It's NOT from the Glorious Quran. In fact, the jurists officially acknowledge that the Quran makes NO references of Dajjal, yet they adhere to it blindly. Why? Because it's a Hadith myth and for the "ahl-Sunnah" the Hadith takes precedence over the Noble Quran .. a blasphemous approach but unfortunately true. Before discussing how the guesswork of Dajjal became a part of Islam, let's take a look at what the theory of Dajjal means in Islam.

The story of Dajjal as accepted by Muslims:
You will find an array of humbug on Dajjal in one of the most popular Hadith sites, Muttaqun. What's most infuriating is the audacity of the storytellers to falsely involve the Quran and the Prophet (S) into it. You will find the heading on Dajjal that states "according to Quran and Sunnah." But scan the page for yourself and see if you can find a single word on Dajjal from the Quran. It's all from the deviations of the man-written Hadith. The myth of Masih-ad- Dajjal is a typical rhetorical drama for the purpose of making lectures interesting for spiritually (and otherwise) uneducated commoners who have no desire for the quest of Quranic knowledge nor are they interested in reflecting on Quranic contents for themselves. These folks take the spoon-fed lies of their clerics as law, regardless of its contradiction or non-conformity with the Quran.

Dajjal legend is akin to cultish beliefs. The idea is to basically prevent people from spreading vices by frightening them with horrific legendary descriptions of a monstrous villian. It's also often used for constructing the signs of Qaiamah (Day of Resurrectiion), such as, people will stop offering their prayers, dishonesty & immorality will be the way of life, falsehood will become a virtue etc. etc. But such vices have existed in all communities of the world at all times and will continue to do so. Allah, The Exalted, has made it clear in the Noble Quran that the Last Day will have no signs and will come unawares, suddenly. Even if there is a warning, it will be too short with no time for turning back or making amends. Furthermore, the Quran has made it abundantly clear that the Prophet (S) was NOT avid of the unseen and could NOT predict future events.

Dajjal myth is also frilled with imaginary details that he will appear somewhere between Syria and Iraq and will travel the whole world preaching his falsehood, but will be unable to enter Makkah or Medinah. Essa (Jesus) will return, and the Dajjal will gather an army of those he deceived and lead them in a war against Jesus, who shall be accompanied by an army of the righteous. Only a person who has completely renounced the Quranic instruction of NOT accepting information for which Allah Almighty has given no warrant will probably believe in such stories. No sensible believer with a shred of loyalty toward Allah and His Messenger will ever conceive of accepting these gossips and whispers as a part of the true Faith.

Dajjal story commonly accepted by both Sunnis and Shiias:
The only difference being that the Sunnis believe Dajjal will be killed by Essa (son of virgin Maryam) on his "return" as the Christians do, and Shiias believe that Dajjal will be knocked down dead upon the "return of Imam Mahdi."

This reminds me, there's also a false and ridiculous Hadith attributed to Imam Ali bin Abi Talib on Dajjal which I quote: "His right eye will be punctured, and his left eye would be raised to his forehead and will be sparkling like a star. Only the believers will be able to read the word ‘Kufr’ [disbelief], inscribed in bold letters, on his forehead. There will be big mountains of smoke at both front and backsides of his caravan. People will anticipate food within those mountains, during the severe famine. He will be riding on a huge white coloured 'donkey' who will cover a mile in a single stride. All rivers, falling in his way, will become dry and he will call upon people in aloud voice, "O my friends come to me! I am your lord who has made your limbs and given you sustenance."

The origin of the concept of Dajjal:
The idea of Dajjal arises from the theological legend of eschatology. "Eschat" is a Greek term meaning "last" and "logy" means "study." The reference is, "end of time" stories. It's another one of those myths borrowed from altered Christianity, Judaism, and from non-Divine faiths like hinduism, buddhism, zorastrism etc. In altered Christianity it starts from the story that Essa (son of virgin Maryam) will return (which the Noble Quran does NOT confirm nor refer to at all). From this tale of the return of Jesus, the story of the false messiah coming prior to the real one has been concocted. Thus, the Arabic term "dajjal" means deceit. This guy, Dajjal, is supposed to be an end-of-times deceiver.

The Dajjal story has a very non-Monotheistic root, based on pure imagination of the human mind. Christian eschatology is concerned with anti-Christ (Dajjal in Arabic) and then return of Jesus before the end to times. Jewish eschatology involves the return of a Jewish Messiah. The Jewish messiah is supposed to be a human leader (name and particulars not known), physically descended from the Davidic line who will rule and unite the people of Israel and will usher universal peace (indeed a sharp contrast from the murders and brigandry the Zionists are carrying out at present). The Jewish messiah is not considered to be divine nor is he considered to be Jesus. The hindu eschatology is about some character named Kalki descending from heaven before time draws to a close. The term used by zorastrians for end of time is "frashokereti" which is supposed to be a doctrine of a final renovation of the universe, when evil will be destroyed. In inter-faith dialogues "the end of time" notion is referred to as Apocalypticism. It refers to the belief that end of time will be within one's own lifetime. This belief is accompanied by the idea that civilization will soon come to a tumultuous end with some sort of catastrophic global event such as war. Probably America's ever-growing destructive foreign policies have brought this idea in the minds of some of their thinkers.

I'm sure it's now easy to perceive how this myth of Dajjal being symbolic of "end times" has crept into Islam. It began with the gross and corrupt Hadith narrations of the half-hearted Makkan converts, and a little later, these false narrations were edited and compiled by the medieval imams or the writers/collectors of the Hadith literature who loved to integrate Islam with man-made faiths.

May Allah, The Exalted, grant us protection from such gross misguidance.
