Saudi writer Turki Al-Hamad retracted his earlier opinion in Sahih Al-Bukhari, saying That Al-Bukhari is a prominent figure of Islam and that his previous tweet “was incorrectly understood“.
Al-Hamad's retreat came after an uproar sparked by a tweet on Twitter in which he considered that Al-Bukhari's book contradicts the Holy Quran.
In a new tweet on Twitter, Al-Hamad wrote that Bukhari's status, efforts, history, and accomplishments are unquestionable matters..
Al-Hamad was subjected to a violent attack on the communication sites Socialist after a tweet in which he considered Sahih Al-Bukhari contradictory to the Holy Quran, before he deleted it.
Al-Hamad spoke about the offensive images of the Prophet Muhammad and the crisis that provoked them, calling for criticism of “the heritage that provided the living material for these drawings,” as he put it..
Al-Hamad wrote in the tweet, “Before we criticize the offensive images of our noble Messenger, peace be upon him, we have to criticize our heritage that provided the living material for these drawings, the first of which is Sahih al-Bukhari..through this book, and comparing it with the Holy Qur’an, I find that it completely contradicts it..”
The tweet sparked anger, and the tweeters launched the hashtag "Turki Al-Hamad offends Al-Bukhari", topping the most frequently discussed topics on Twitter in Saudi Arabia.
The satirical cartoons published by the French newspaper Charlie Hebdo of the Prophet Muhammad caused a wave of anger in Muslim countries, and attacks on Frenchmen and French interests..
It remains for Al-Hamd to recede what is behind it .. Will he ever reveal it?
