Be Witness! My Religion is the Religion of Abraham (+Video)

Ibn Umar reported: Zaid ibn Amr ibn Nufail went to Syria to ask about a ture religion to follow. He met a Jewish scholar and he asked them about their religion. Zaid said, “I intend to embrace your religion, so tell me something about it.” The Jew said, “You cannot embrace our religion until you receive a share of Allah’s anger.” Zaid said, “I do not run except from Allah’s anger and I will never bear it if I can avoid it; can you tell me about another religion?” He said, “I do not know of any other religion but the Haneef.” Zaid said, “What is the Haneef?” He said, “Haneef is the religion of Abraham who was neither a Jew nor a Christian.” Then Zaid left and he met a Christian scholar and he told him the same as before. The Christian said, “You cannot embrace our religion until you receive a share of Allah’s curse.” Zaid said, “I do not run except from Allah’s curse and I will never bear it if I can avoid it; can you tell me about another religion?” He said, “I do not know of any other religion but the Haneef.” Zaid said, “What is the Haneef?” He said, “Haneef is the religion of Abraham, who was neither a Jew nor a Christian, and he would worship none but Allah.” When Zaid heard this about Abraham, he left that place and he raised both of his hands and he said, “O Allah, you are my witness that I am upon the religion of Abraham.”
