My question to you all is, is Quran Sufficient?
Rabbil `aalameen, Wassalatu wassalaam `ala Sayyid Al Mursaleen, was `aqibatu
lil muttaqeen, amma ba`ad.
have mentioned in your "About the Authors" (Our mission is to
proclaim the truth from the Holy Quran and …..)
question to you all is, is Quran Sufficient? If Quran is sufficient, then how
will you understand it without the support of Hadith e Rasool (pbuh). Quran was
revealed on our beloved prophet, and he explained it to his Sahabas (ra).
Hence, this explanation is available only in Hadith books like Sahah Sitta and
other authentic books. Kindly tell me if you understand quran with Hadith or
you understand quran directly?

errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from

Quran alone or with hadith
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask
for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever
He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that
there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad
(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Beloved brother in Islam, The All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord
did not send any of His Books alone….but rather He, in His Absolute Wisdom and
Knowledge always appointed a Prophet amongst the people and revealed His Divine
Guidance upon Him so that His Messengers would not only convey the Message of
their Lord, but live and present a practical example of how the Message of the
Lord is to be implemented in their lives and society.
Thus if one reads the Glorious Quran with understanding
one will and can very well understand the basic concepts of faith like the
Absolute Oneness of Allah Subhanah, the concept of the Hereafter, the Paradise,
the Hell Fire, etc…..but to implement the Shariah or Laws of Islam upon their
social and individual lives, it is absolutely imperative that one look into,
learn and study and strive to implement the Sunnah or the practice of the
Messenger of Allah (saws) into their lives.
Thus if any amongst mankind states the Quran alone is
enough for him without the understanding and implementation of the Sunnah of
the Messenger of Allah (saws) into their lives, his knowledge as well as his
practice of Islam would be absolutely incomplete, to say the least.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisa verse 79-80:
We have sent you (O Mohamed) as a Messenger to
mankind, and Allah’s witness suffices
for this. Whoever obeys the Messenger,
in fact obeys Allah, and whoever turns
away from him, he will be accountable for his deeds. Anyhow,
we have not sent you (O Mohamed) to be a guardian over them.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale
Imran verse 31-32:
tell the people, “If you sincerely love Allah, follow me.
Then Allah will love you and forgive you your sins, for He is All Forgiving, All Merciful.” Also say to them, “Obey Allah and His
Messenger.” And if, in spite of this, they do not accept your invitation, warn them that Allah does not love those, who refuse to obey Him and His Messenger.
Thus without an iota of a doubt, to accept, obey, follow
and implement the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah
(saws) is an integral and inseparable part of being a muslim.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands
of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one
can be assured of never ever being misled;
but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than
that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to
Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only
Source of Strength.

well wisher in Islam,
