Allah Exalted He says
“It is certainly We Who have revealed the Reminder (Quran and authentic Sunnah), and it is certainly We Who will preserve it (from Corruption).” Quran (15:9)
And Yasir Qadhi says: There are Holes in the story of the story Quran Preservation Narrative
“That is because they detest what Allah has revealed, so He has rendered their deeds void.”
“But no! By your Lord, they will never be ˹true˺ believers until they accept you ˹O Prophet˺ as the judge in their disputes and find no resistance within themselves against your decision and submit wholeheartedly. Quran (4:65)
“O believers! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. Should you disagree on anything, then refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if you ˹truly˺ believe in Allah and the Last Day. This is the best and fairest resolution. Have you ˹O Prophet˺ not seen those who claim they believe in what has been revealed to you and what was revealed before you?
They seek the judgment of false judges, which they were commanded to reject. And Satan ˹only˺ desires to lead them farther away. When it is said to them, “Come to Allah’s revelations and to the Messenger,” you see the hypocrites turn away from you stubbornly. Quran (4:59-61)
“Surely the hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire—and you will never find for them any helper—” Quran (4:145)
Umar ibn Al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him, said:
رَجَمَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَرَجَمَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ وَرَجَمْتُ وَلَوْلَا أَنِّي أَكْرَهُ أَنْ أَزِيدَ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ لَكَتَبْتُهُ فِي الْمُصْحَفِ فَإِنِّي قَدْ خَشِيتُ أَنْ تَجِيءَ أَقْوَامٌ فَلَا يَجِدُونَهُ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ فَيَكْفُرُونَ بِهِ
The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, stoned (the married adulterer), Abu Bakr stoned, and I stone. Were it not that I hate adding to the book of Allah, I would have written it in the copy of the Quran. I fear that people will come and not find it in the book of Allah, so they will disbelieve in it.

In another narration, Umar said:
وَلَوْلَا أَنْ يَقُولَ قَائِلُونَ زَادَ عُمَرُ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ مَا لَيْسَ مِنْهُ لَكَتَبْتُهُ فِي نَاحِيَةٍ مِنْ الْمُصْحَفِ
Were it not that some would say Umar has added to the book of Allah what does not belong in it, I would have written it in the margins of the Quran.
Source: Musnad Aḥmad 157, Grade: Sahih=Authentic
Hence, the stoning verse was never part of the official Quranic text, although some companions may have written it in the margins of their personal copies.
Umar, in fact, had asked the Prophet (ṣ) for permission to write this verse in the Quran, but he was refused.
Zaid ibn Thabit reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said:
الشَّيْخُ وَالشَّيْخَةُ إِذَا زَنَيَا فَارْجُمُوهُمَا الْبَتَّةَ
The married old man and old woman, if they commit adultery, then stone them irrevocably.
Umar said, “When this was revealed, I went to the Prophet, and I said: Let me write it.” Shu’bah said:
فَكَأَنَّهُ كَرِهَ ذَلِكَ
It was as if the Prophet disliked that.
Source: Musnad Aḥmad 21086, Grade: Sahih=Authentic
In another narration, the Prophet said:
لا أَسْتَطِيعُ ذَاكَ
I cannot have it written.
Al-Bayhaqi comments on this statement, saying:
فِي هَذَا وَمَا قَبْلَهُ دَلالَةٌ عَلَى أَنَّ آيَةَ الرَّجْمِ حُكْمُهَا ثَابِتٌ وَتِلاوَتُهَا مَنْسُوخَةٌ وَهَذَا مِمَّا لا أَعْلَمُ فِيهِ خِلافًا
In this, and what came before it, are evidence that the ruling of the verse of stoning is affirmed and its recitation is abrogated. This among matters of which I do not know of any disagreement.

Check Refutation of Yasir Qadhi’s Grave Worship Blunder Book at the end of this article
Yasir Qadhi either a liar or an ignorant or both when he claims in the above short video that the stoning punishment/Hadd is NOT a prescribed had by Allah Exalted he.
And it is Merely up to the discretion of the Muslim Ruler to apply the stoning punishment as a discretionary punishmentتعزير to scare married people from committing Extra Martial adultery/Zina.
Regardless How many Bachelors, Masters or PhD in Sharia, or Islamic studies a person holds, if he/she goes against The Glorious Holy Quran, Authentic Sunnah of our beloved Prophet and the agreement of vast majority of Scholars.
That person who violating all that is deviant, hypocrite and possibly or potentially Kafir=disbeliever and out of the fold of Islam. We have in Islam ten things if anyone violate one or more of them, he/she is out of Islam
For more reading check here:
There is HUGE difference as a Muslim on one hand between acknowledging that fact that there is almost no proper Islamic country that apply the Shari’ah Laws= Islamic laws therefore, the stoning punishment for married adulterous under Islamic Shari’ah is not applied.
And on the other hand, it is unacceptable for any Muslim to raise doubts around whether Stoning punishment for married adulterous under Islamic Shari’ah is suitable in our time and age, such doubts and downplay its importance can put a Muslim on the brink of being out of the fold of Islam and possibly a Murtad= apostate= non-Muslim, which necessarily will trigger the Islamic process of dealing with an apostate.
In the above video Yasir Qadhi is asking and we are quoting now “Does medieval Islam Law prescribe the death penalty (Death Penalty by stoning) for extra marital sex”
And then he answers himself by saying “Yes it does prescribe death penalty (Death Penalty by stoning) for extra marital sex and not premarital”
Again, he is asking “how often this death penalty (Death Penalty by stoning) or law applied in medieval times, then he keeps questioning whether this death penalty (Death Penalty by stoning) or law, should be updated or modernised and again he answers himself by saying that this matter is an ongoing discussion and one of the main sources of Intra-Muslim dialogue.
One wonders whether Yasir Qadhi is liar or ignorant or both, simply because death penalty (Death Penalty by stoning) or law, vast majority of Scholars of Islam have agreed based on what our beloved Prophet has applied that death penalty (Death Penalty by stoning) or law as it is a PRESCRIBED Punishment by Allah Exalted, He.
Yes, the Quranic verse was abrogated in words but not in ruling and one of the reasons Allah Exalted He abrogated this verse in the written form is to test us as well.
Our Beloved Prophet in the above-mentioned Hadith confirmed that death penalty (Death Penalty by stoning) or law is a PRESCRIBED Punishment for the Extra-Marital sex/adultery/zina, and The Companions of the Prophet applied it too.
Yasir Qadhi in the above short video using the term “Medieval Islam” and AVOIDNG to go back and reference it to our Beloved Prophet and his great companions and our pious predecessors-Al Salaf Al Salih.
Then Yasir Qadhi continues speaking to his audience in which he tells them that “I am sure Jews and Christians understand this (he is claiming that there is an “Intra-Muslim dialogue” about whether death penalty (Death Penalty by stoning) for extra marital sex is PRESCRIBED Punishment that was implemented by “Medieval Islam”.
And it was also just a scare tactic that was up to the discretion of the Islamic Ruler to apply or not, Yasir Qadhi claim that it is just a scare tactic in the Islamic books and not a PRESCRIBED Punishment for the Extra-Marital sex/adultery/zina is an utter lie or ignorance or both.
Basically, Yasir Qadhi wants to “get rid of” a PRESCRIBED Punishment for the Extra-Marital sex/adultery/zina which was ordinated by Allah Exalted He and practised by our beloved Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him and all his companions.
Yasir Qadhi continues speaking to his audience by saying that the Text “of the Quran” says sometimes things that are “PROBLEMATIC” at times- you all religious people know what I am talking about here.
Yasir Qadhi continues by saying that the text “of the Quran” has some laws that somehow Bizarre and that “ALL” texts (from all religions – mainly Christianity and Judaism as it represents some of his audience).
And then he gives an example in Leviticus (20:10-12) which reads: “If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, even with the wife of his neighbour, both the adulterer and adulteress must be put to death….”
So, Yasir Qadhi is trying again to appeal to his audience by saying “Muslims needs to have that dialogue to discuss The PRESCRIBED Punishment for the Extra-Marital sex/adultery/zina which was ordinated by Allah Exalted He and practised by our beloved Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him and all his companions.
The Question here is:
How for Yasir Qadhi to equate between the divinely preserved Glorious Holy Quran which we Muslim MEMORIZE it letter for letter and word for word and pass it on from generation to another via Authentic Verified Chains of Memorizers and Narrators.
How dare Yasir Qadhi to equate between that Biblical verse from the Partially corrupted Bible that had been proven to be corrupted, not only according to Islamic statements but also according to the Non-Muslim Western Academics specialized in the textual criticism science of the Bible.
It is claimed that Yasir Qadhi have memorized the Holy Quran and the question is, which recitation or Qiraʼat did he memorize in?
Is any disagreement between Muslim specialists of recitations=Qiraʼat about the recitations=Qiraʼat of the Glorious Holy Quran?
Again, Yasir Qadhi either lying or choosing to be an ignorant or both when he states that there are Intern-Muslim dialogue regarding problems or disagreement among Muslim specialists of recitations=Qiraʼat of the Glorious Holy Quran regarding the various recitations=Qiraʼat of the Glorious Holy Quran.
Yasir Qadhi is NOT specialist in the field of recitations=Qiraʼat of the Glorious Holy Quran
Yasir Qadhi said he believe the Quran is the literal fully preserved word of Allah, yet his statement raises doubts, suspicions, echoes the classical accusations and attacks aimed at The Glorious Quran which have been made over the past by orientalists and play in the favour of the enemies of Islam.
Yasir Qadhi suggesting to Muslims and inviting them to have a dialogue over the PRESCREPED stoning hadd of an extra marital adultery/zina for married adulterous who committed adultery.
In the same breath Yasir Qadhi was questioning the relevance of that PRESCREPED stoning hadd to American Muslims and considering it to be not of his concern at all not should it be relevant to Muslim Americans.
While such statement might have some reality to it due to American Muslims are living under American law, that does not mean that he would step up and claim that PRESCREPED stoning had should be part of the past even if it not applied anywhere in America.
How The Glorious Holy Qura’n was/is Preserved and what is the Main Method of The Transmission
The Glorious Holy Quran was transmitted to us Muslims via VERIFIED CHAINS of Narrations authenticated MAINLY ORALLY= MEMORIZATION and pass it on from Generation to another.
Although The Glorious Holy Quran had been written when our Beloved Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him dictated The Glorious Holy Quran to his companions and many of them wrote it down AND they used to MEMORIZE it FULLY And COMPLETELY.
REGULAR meetings with Each other AND with our Beloved Prophet were held to ensure the Super accuracy of their level of memorization and Documentation as well were up to date and approved by our Beloved Prophet.
That is why if you go right NOW on YouTube and type up the international competition for Quran MEMORIZATION you will be able to watch Videos of Muslims who recite the WHOLE QURAN from the top of their head. Without even reading.
No Muslim is fully and completely APPROVED memorizer of the whole Quran, unless he/she is approved by someone whose Credential and Memorization can be traced back to Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him PERSONALLY.
Authentic chains of verified narrations that have been memorized and tested regularly by approved narrators and memorizers. Even Some non-Muslim Scholars have admitted that Islamic Scriptures are the ONLY Scriptures in the whole world to be transmitted mainly through memorization based on authentic chains of verified narrations, that can be traced back to the Prophet himself personally.
It is a very well-known fact that MAIN method of transmitting The Glorious Holy Qur’an was and still via MEMEORIZATION. Even Christians know that, and International Memorization completions are held regularly and be viewed on YouTube.
That means that The Glorious Holy Qur’an Did NOT rely mainly on manuscripts, yes, the companions of our beloved Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him have written some chapters of The Glorious Holy Qur’an and wrote side notes beside the Holy text itself, such side notes include one or more of the accredited methods of pronunciations of a word or more commonly known by methods of recitations =Qiraʼat.
Also, it is worth mentioning that those Quranic manuscripts were written in Standard Arabic BEFORE the implementation of the Arabic Grammar and Arabic Calligraphy- which had been added later on the Arabic Language itself to help readers understand that exact meanings of words.
Quranic manuscripts can NOT be used in any way shape or form to undermine the Crystal-clear concrete credibility of the Glorious Holy Quran including the seven main methods of pronunciations of words commonly known in Arabic by Qiraʼat
Let us make it simple:
Hypothetically speaking, if all forms of digital, electronic, and hard copies of the Bible disappeared right now in an ocean and the Quran as well, which one can be retrieved?
Well, the answer is obvious, those who memorize their book will be able to retrieve is easily.
We challenge Christians if there is ONE SINGLE CHRISTIAN on Earth Planet who memorize ONE SINGLE BOOK out of the Bible, rather than the Whole Bible, not a hope not even your Pope or Cardinal can do that.
There is NO problems or disagreement among Muslim specialists of recitations=Qiraʼat of the Glorious Holy Quran regarding the accuracy and authenticity of the various recitations=Qiraʼat of the Glorious Holy Quran.
See Attached to this article recitations=Qiraʼat of the Glorious Holy Quran doubts and response in Arabic PDF format to whom it may concern.
Yasir Qadhi Exposed – SHIRK & Major Faith= Aqeedah Issues Refuted and the Holes in the Quran Preservation Narrative lie Exposed
Sheikh ibn Baz Ruling on those who consider Islamic Laws and Sharia rulings inappropriate for this era
A man says: Some Islamic Sharia legal rulings need to be reconsidered, and they need to be amended because they do not fit the development of this era. What is the ruling of Sharia in such a person says this?
The provisions that God legislated for His servants and explained them in His Noble Book or on the tongue of His trustworthy Messenger from his Lord is the best of prayer and peace, such as the provisions of inheritance, the five daily prayers, zakat, fasting and other things that Allah has made clear to His servants and the nation is unanimously agreed upon. No one can object to it or change it.
Because it is a tight legislation for the nation in the time of the Prophet, peace be upon him, and after him until the Hour of Judgment, and this includes the preference of the male over the female from the children and the children of the sons and the brothers to the parents and the father.
Because Allah, Glory be to Him, has made it clear in His Noble Book, and Muslim scholars have unanimously agreed upon it, so it is obligatory to act according to belief and faith. Because he objects to Allah, glory be to Him, His Messenger, peace be upon him.
And the consensus of the nation, and the ruler has to ask him to repent if he is a Muslim. If he repents, otherwise he must be killed as an unbeliever, an apostate from Islam, because the Prophet, peace be upon him, said: Whoever changes (his religion, kill him).
Narrated by Al-Bukhari.
We ask Allah to protect us and all Muslims from the misguidances of temptation and from violating the pure Sharia

Important Note: The application of the above-mentioned Hadith Whoever changes (his religion, kill him).
Narrated by Al-Bukhari is NOT for any random individuals to apply it or take the Islamic Law in their own hands. Additionally, there are certain very stringent prerequisites and criteria please read the links at the end of this article for more details.
Yasir Qadhi praising one of the top Sufi sheikhs: Abdul Hakim Murad
But What is the Problem with that Sufi sheikh Abdul Hakim Murad=Timothy Winter Here is the answer:
Sufi sheikh Abdul Hakim=Timothy Winter has said it is a “legitimate interpretation” that Jews and Christians may be saved through the intercession of the Prophet peace be upon him
Start watch from roughly minite 3 in the below video to hear Timothy Winter=Sufi sheikh Abdul Hakim) saying Jews and Christians and other disbeliever possibly saved by the intercession of the Prophet peace be upon him ( Islamically such belief would make a Muslim out of Islam)
Allah knows Best.
