Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamu alaykum,


Dear brother..it is because I can understand Arabic that I know you text ayat out of context and use them to prove you way of thinking.  Hadith and history were fabricated...and it is there authenticfication that prove one versus the other.  So when you say something is the hadith of the Prophet...it can just as well be fabricated.  You've admitted this yourself.  So when you quoted a hadith saying one thing and forget that just as authentic of history states another where do you go??  Just because Sahih Bukhari or Muslim didn't put in their collection doesn't mean something is still not authentic.  The history of the Imams is not in those collection but are in Hanbal, Tirmidhi, Nisai, Ibn Kathir, Tabarsi, etc. 

And a statement from Hz. Ali is just like one from the Prophet.  If it is authentic, whether hadith or history, it is still authentic.  It is one thing to quoted from a translation of the Quran, but it is another to say this hadith is right and this history is wrong...when both are authentic.

Answer:

You quote aayahs out of context

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and who-ever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Brother, we absolutely agree with you, that the collections of hadiths and the documentation of history is the work of man, and therefore open to error. Allah has commanded us to follow the Holy Quran, and all the muslims are unanimous that this Book is unchanged since its inception. Besides Allah Himself has guaranteed the safekeeping and accuracy of this Glorious Book. This is the Book which Allah has revealed for our guidance, and for all matters of guidance we need not go into the hadith or history collections; for the Quran is more than sufficient. If at times we differ in hadiths or history, lets decide according to the guidance of the Holy Quran.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verse 64:Say, O people of the Scriptures, come to what is common between us and you, that we shall worship none but Allah; that we shall associate nothing with Him; and that none of us shall make as our Lord any other than Allah. If they reject your invitation, then tell them plainly, Bear witness that we are those who surrender to Allah Alone.

 

Allah has commanded that we follow Allah and His Messenger (saws). Allah has never commanded the believers to follow the History of the Muslims, or the History of the Imams! And besides, no imam, no dai, no bhai saheb, no aamil, absolutely no one has the right to change the deen or any aspect of what has been declared by Allah and His Messenger (saws). Thus whatever the pious imams said, it has to be in accordance with the Quran and Sunnah. No one has the right to add or remove anything from the deen of Islam, which was revealed and lived by the Messenger of Allah (saws).

 

To be fair with you, you give us the name/s of the book/s which you think are accurate and authentic in Muslim History. That way we can come to a common ground in our discussions.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
