Hadith Rejectors are Hypocrites by Nouman Ali Khan

  1. Hadith rejectors do not oppose the messenger. They oppose hadith. Big difference! They obey Allah and obey the messenger by obeying the Quran. Hadith are not authorized in the Quran, but the Quran clearly is.

    2:185 The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur’an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion.

    In which verse does it say hadith are a guidance for people?

    • In turn you do oppose the Messenger of Allah. Obeying the Messenger of Allah is not restricted to only obeying the Qur’an it is also his words that explain the details of the Qur’an that are known to him and are then explained by him to us. Let us for a momment agree that the Hadith are not authorised by the Qur’an, does it not make any sense that if revelation comes upon a man and he explained it wouldn’t you hold his explanation or sayings to a high degree. For if he was chosen to convey the message he must be trust worthy and intelligent.

      Anyways, we can argue about the authenticity and authorisation of the hadith. But, if you can reject them then my statement is meaningless and thus in no need to even explain further.

    • (The month of Ramadan is that in which was revealed the Quran). Revealed to whom? Taught to whom? Tasked to whom? Delivered by whom? Executed by whom? If there wasn’t the necessity for the prophet’s hadith to be considered as guidance, why was Quran revealed to him the first place?

  2. AlhamduliAllah, Allah never said in alQuraan to obey nor to follow Muhammed but He said obey the messenger [cleared].

  3. Salaam brother DTT, again there is a difference between Prophet and Messenger. And messenger does not mean Muhammad by default. That is what I wanted to highlight, it is very easy for Allah to say obey Muhammad but He didn’t say so, why? There must be some great reasons. Just think about it bro.

      Well I disagree with you brother. If Allah only wanted Muslims to follow Quran alone, Allah would not have stated in many places ‘”OBEY Allah AND THE Messenger”.

      Say Obey Allah and the Messenger. But if they turn away, then Allah does not like the disbelievers. [Quran 3:32]

      And whoso obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad) then they will be in the company of those on whom Allah has bestowed His Grace, of the Prophets, the Siddiqun (those followers of the Prophets who were first and foremost to believe in them, like Abu Bakr As-Siddiq the martyrs, and the righteous. And how excellent these companions are! [Quran 4:69]

      And many more passages, 8:1, 8:20, 9:71, 4:80. There are two distinct commands in the verses shown.

      1. “Obey Allah” = Quran
      2. “Obey the Messenger” = Prophet Muhammed (p) Sunnah

      If Allah only wanted the Quran to be followed, HE would just stated “Obey Allah”. There was no need to state “AND THE MESSENGER”. But as seen, the evidence shown, proofs that a Muslim must also follow Muhammed (p). There are two different commands in them passages. Peace.

      • When Allah makes a claim in the Quran that He made the Quran easy to understand and remember, isn’t that enough evidence that Allah himself is asserting that you don’t need anybody who should be there to explain it to you. In many places in the Quran, the criteria upon anybody will be judge is following or not following of Qur’an not any hadeeths. “Obey the Messenger” does not mean obeying him in his Sunnah, it simply means that we should obey him in his leadership of this Ummah. I believe that any hadeeth that further explain the Quranic verse should be accepted only if it does not alter or add anything to the original verse of the Qur’an, meaning hadeeth must have corresponding verses that it should relate itself to from the Quran, if there isn’t, then i am sorry it should not be accepted.

        Example: In Qur’an we read “O you who believe, when you rise to observe the Salat, you shall wash your faces and your arms to the elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankles.” 5:6

        Question: Do we perform our wadu in a way explained in this verse?

        I would say that 99% of Muslims do not, they follow the hadeeth in which, extra steps and repetitions are mentioned. Our Prophet will not dare add or remove anything that is not from the Qur’anic command, and i truly believe that my Prophet performed his Wadu exactly as it is mentioned in the verse above, but then why do we have hadeeths mentioning extra steps of Wadu?

        Now in my view any hadeeth the mentions extra steps of doing wadu is overriding the verse of the Qur’an, which should be thrown out based on the Qur’anic verse that we should not be excessive or over burdening in our religion.

  4. Salaam brother DTT,

    I see that you are not allowing yourself to even think on what I wrote.

    Anyways, I will give another clue. As you said “OBEY Allah AND THE Messenger”, the messenger here is a translation of alQuranic Arabic word “alRasool”. You will never find in alQuraan that Allah referring Mohammed as alRasool, inshaAllah. Why so do you think?

    A humble suggestion: Seek Allah’s help to make your understand on this matter instead of taking decisions on your own. If you don’t like my suggestion, please feel free to throw it in trash bin.

    May Allah increase our knowledge and guide us on His path.

  5. The Quran should always get the preference over Hadiths….

    • Salaam Smith,

      Did Allah asked us to follow hadith? Any single aayat? Please tell us so that we can also follow.

      • Waalaikum Salam Mohammed,

        The Quran is composed of divine words, and just as the God of Islam is a mystery, so is the Quran. I think we should not only follow hadith, but any knowledge that may bring us closer to the understanding of the Quran. I can assure you that without having deeper understanding of the universe, a person may not follow Quran properly at all.

    • Salaam brother,

      I understand your point of you. As per your understand no human or jinn or anyone else could explain alQuraan except Allah. So, is it not better to turn to Allah for alQuraan’s explanations! Didn’t He said that “alRahmaan a3llama alQuraan” 55:1-2?

      Then why we need others to explain to us, is Allah not enough for us? Please think about it.

      I personally think that if we cannot understand alQuraan then what is the use of sending it towards us? Our Lord, Allah talk to us via alQuraan, there are clear message for dos and don’ts in it. We can directly take the guidance from Allah. And no one can guide us as He do.

      • That’s right… Quran can be understood by individuals according to their levels of distinct spiritual capacities.

    • Salaam brother,

      Yes I agree.

  6. Assalamualaikum,
    I truly believe that Quran is the word of almighty and Muhammad (saw) is the final messenger. And i also believe prophet (saw) will not act against the book of allah. but, unfortunately the so called sahih hadith of Muhammad (saw) does not make sense at all and it even contradicts the word of allah (not every hadith). I dont believe that our prophet (saw) will teach us, which is not in the Quran. As i can see many contradictions between Quran and hadith, I can conclude this issue by saying that the sayings of prophet (saw) has been not persevered properly. And lots of sayings are not understood properly within the context…….And many of them are fabricated………..So we cant confidently say to people to trust hadith………
