Fabricated Prophetic Traditions in Urdu Na'tiya poetry
The genre of ‘Naat’ has a highly important position in the history of Islamic literature, on account of its religious reverence it also has literary, social, conceptual and ideological importance. On the basis of a direct connection with the holy Quran and Sunnah, Muslims from all over the world have always expressed special interest and adoration at every level for this sacred art of poetry, that is why an abundant treasure of ‘Naatiya poetry’ is found in Urdu literature like Arabic and Persian. Due to these innumerable expressions of writings and overpowered by exaggeration, embellishment, enthusiastic love and ignorant mysticism they have distracted from the principle of “be insane in the presence of Lord be vigilantly respectful in the presence of Mustafa”, and combined freshness with harshness and defectiveness even the topics of subjective narrations are woven in poetry, in this way under the guise of admiration consciously or unconsciously poets of ‘Naat’ have committed a serious mistake of speaking falsehoods, and even going against the instructions of the Holy Prophet. Which is equivalent of making religion into non-religion and is not at all allowed according to the moral and Islamic codes for any Muslim.Moreover these type of fabricated subjects after interweaving in poetry are presented in the society as hadith and create misinformation on ideological, moral and conceptual levels and shake the very foundation of ideology of the whole society. Therefore Imams of Islamic Law and hadith have provided a cure for this ailment through their hard work and research, in the light of which we can save our religious, intellectual and social environment from the pollution of ignorance.
