Many Muslims may not know…

Many Muslims may not know about this, but the scholars of Tafseer and Seerah were many a times concerned with Jam’ (collecting) of narrations or opinions rather than with theological and methodological verification – these stories have also unfortunately remained in latter-day historians’ and exegetes’ books, making it a prime reference for sectarian polemicists and anti-Muslim propagandists. Of course, the verification has been done and continues to be done, but these ‘collection books’ do remain.
