Prophet Abraham’s son-slaughtering dream & danger of blind belief

How dangerous blind believing could be! A recent incident in Bangladesh is that an woman dreamed that If she did not kill her husband, she would become a dog so she killed her sleeping husband with an ax.  Every conscious human should oppose all forms of blind believing including religious fanaticism.

Prophet Ibrahim tried to slaughter his loving son after seeing a dream and he believed God showed that terrible dream to slaughter his son in such a brutal way! Surely prophet Ibrahim was not suffering from psychiatric disorder. Blind believing cannot be tolerated in any circumstances, not even in any guise of psychiatric disorder.

While many times different stories are repeated in the Quran again and again, nowhere in the Quran it is said that prophet Abraham’s that infamous dream came from devil! That’s indeed very strange! The Quran never says Satan can show you dream in the name of God. Even Quran says that indeed God’s messenger can see dream that could come from God!

And due to that reason almost all Muslims believe that Satan cannot show false dream to any God’s messenger! God never rebuked Abraham for doing such terrible mistake (crime)! For even lesser offense (mistake) God rebuked his many messengers including Prophet Muhammad!

The relevant verses express in such a way that billions of Muslims around the world believe that the terrible dream indeed came from God no matter how hard you try to deny it! It seems God rewarded Abraham instead of rebuking (punishing) him for such terrible act!

[The Quran 37.102] And when he attained to working with him, he said: O my son! surely I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice you; consider then what you see. He said: O my father! do what you are commanded; if Allah please, you will find me of the patient ones.
[37.103] So when they both submitted and he threw him down upon his forehead,
[37.104] And We called out to him saying: O Ibrahim!
[37.105] You have indeed shown the truth of the vision; surely thus do We reward the doers of good.

Whatever be the case we cannot blame God because it is sure that God is loving, God is merciful, God never ever harms anybody, God never advocates sin therefore the relevant verses of the Quran do not make any sense. God is not doing such terrible drama with human race.

We should not insult God (Allah) to accept these verses literally. We may not understand the true meaning of the Quran or some parts of the Quran were corrupted badly. Historically even some prominent companions of the prophet Muhammad’s never accepted the current version of the Quran.

Even in our time the paper Quran (Mushaf) has several versions and which clearly indicate that some parts of the Quran were indeed corrupted or changed somehow. Please do not believe anything blindly, not even the paper Quran.  Blind belief can have dangerous and disasters consequences in your life.
