About this episode

This video entirely delves into the incident behind the Satanic Verses with reference to Surah Najm and Shaykh Yasir Qadhi explicitly clarifies every single version pertaining to these verses and what is the understanding behind these versions, which of them is authentic and which is a fabricated one.

Shortly after the immigration to Abyssinia the Muslims came back to Mecca. So much so it is narrated they came back in the month of Shawwal. Thus, they immigrated in Rajab but came back just 3 months later. They all returned - so what happened to cause them to change their mind and come back to the very land of torture? This incident was the famous incident called the 'satanic verses'.

The controversy comes over whether this incident is authentic or not. And further how we understand this incident. Therefore, Shaykh Yasir discusses the different versions of the story that exist.

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi's opinion is also elucidated upon and makes for a very informative and knowledgeable mention.

In the end all verses have been accounted for, those two verses are not in the Qur'an anyway - NO ONE says they are and so as Allah says He has made His verses crystal clear.
