Miracle Kid a HOAX

asSalaam ‘alaykum wa Rahamtullah,

NOTE:  Click here before you proceed!

Something cool I saw on the Crescent Youth Forums. Quite interesting I would say. Someone brought up a contention against this video, hinting that it might be hoax perhaps. Allahu ‘Alam. It sure is interesting and if true a miracle from Allah. I remember seeing glimpses of this video almost 5 years ago when I was visiting India (in Bangalore to be exact). The video itself shows a 5 year old kid whom they call Shaykh Sherifdeen Al Khalifa. I saw this video 5 years ago on the market for sale, and taking into account the time it took to record the video create the product put it on the market and all that good stuff, the kid must be about 10-11 years old on the conservative side.

The description ont he video says –

Born from Christian Parents who both converted to Islam after the young boy’s miraculous Islamic birth. The boy stopped breast feeding at the age of two months. He did not go to school but yet he can read the Quran and the Bible. he preaches to a very big audience and converted many to Islam.

Note: Notice the nasheed that is playing int he background. It is the famous poem by Abdullah ibn alMubarak which I uploaded on this blog here.

    Yes, the scholars in Medina addressed an issue very similar to this. They spoke about a child like this to exactly. Maybe it is the same Allahu Alam. Their conclusion was that students of knowledge tried to verify all of this information and that te boy as “forced” to memorize some “lectures” here and there and truly doesn’t know anything that is outstanding. Basically the men around the boy wouldn’t allow people to interview the boy and they would descend upon village after village to collect money and donations. Just as how quickly they descended upon a village showering he astonished listeners with a few arabic things here and there, they would then leave them high and dry quickly for the next town. I don’t know if this is the right child or not.

    Also, this thing is in direct contradiction of the Quran in which Allah says, “And Allah delivered you (men) from the wombs ofyour mothers, not knowing anything.”

    the fact the kid is flanked by, who appear to be, government security forces seems a bit….well….odd to say the least. I know the kid would need security and all…but still.

    I feel there is something mysterious about this kid..AllahuAa’lam!
    Why the name of the country and city is not there in the video ?
