Muslims worldwide are up in arms. The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Education in Giza, Egypt, Buthaina Kishk had enough with Islamic Jihadi books that go against nationalism in Egypt so she decided to have a bonfire and invited teachers to participate in burning all of the Islamic books in the Giza pyramid area as a spark to encourage Muslims worldwide that many Muslims just had enough with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Kishk went as far as appearing before the Egyptian people on television program and explained that she had no regrets because she considered that these books distort her views on what Islam should be. Some TV programs are even discussing burning the primary sources of Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari. The two collections of hadith considered to be one of the most authentic collections of the Sunnah of the Prophet of Islam, along with Sahih al-Bukhari, forms the “Sahihain,” or the “Two Sahihs,” which contains roughly 7500 hadith (with repetitions) in 57 books. These come right after the Quran in importance.
When Al-Sisi called for a religious revolution in Egypt, many went on the media to answer the call and even say that Sahih and Muslim are “criminals” and “terrorists,” which the department of education in Jiza even burned 80 titles of books like Islam and Women, Muslim Reformation, Uqba Bin Naf’i, even including the famed Saladin for fifth grade … were completely removed and burned.
The incident was so serious that media all throughout are attacking what happened in Egypt including demonstrations by parents and students. Wajdi Ghuneim, one of the most influential Islamic teachers, took to the TV and prayed that the teachers “burn in the grave as throughout eternity.”
