Top ten reasons
Cont’d from page 1
Let us not forget that each Muslim sect has its own collections
of hadiths that justify their sectarianism, and the fact that there
were no sects during the time of Prophet Muhammad!
Why should we be interested in volumes and volumes of hadith books,
when there is only one book of the Quran—revelations from
God. Are God’s words not sufficient for His servants? It is
conceivable to use hadiths for historical purposes, but Muslims
should never use them as a source of religious guidance. There are
literally thousands of reasons for that. Here are some that may
qualify as the top ten:
10. Hadith is time-dependent, backwards and is
full of unscientific and laughable examples, such as Muhammad splitting
the moon with one half falling into Ali’s backyard! What nonsense.
Or the hadith attributed to Muhammad that if a fly falls in their
soup, they should dip it completely because if one of its wings
carries the germs, the other wing carries the antidote for it! And
these are genuine hadiths! The Quran is applicable for all generations;
therefore it is progressive. It explains the science. It is a no
[79:30] He made the earth egg-shaped.
[27:88] When you look at the mountains, you think
that they are standing still. But they are moving, like the clouds.
Such is the manufacture of GOD, who perfected everything. He is
fully Cognizant of everything you do.
9. Many hadiths contradict each other. There is
no contradiction in the Quran.
[4:82] Why do they not study the Quran carefully?
If it were from other than GOD, they would have found in it numerous
8. Hadith is narrated and compiled by humans more
than two centuries after the death of prophet Muhammad. It has many
rules and regulations that have nothing to do with religion. It
makes the religion difficult for people. It often repels people
from the religion. The Quran was revealed to Muhammad through Gabriel
and it is God’s words. It makes the religion easy for us.
[3:108] These are GOD’s revelations; we recite
them to you, truthfully. GOD does not wish any hardship for the
[10:37] This Quran could not possibly be authored
by other than GOD. It confirms all previous messages, and provides
a FULLY DETAILED scripture. It is infallible, for it comes from
the Lord of the universe.
7. Hadith is the cause of division in Muslim communities.
Each sect has its own set of Hadiths. There is only one Quran, one
source of jurisprudence.
[21:92-93] Your congregation is but one congregation,
and I alone am your Lord; you shall worship Me alone. However, they
divided themselves into disputing religions. All of them will come
back to us (for judgment).
[42:13] He decreed for you the same religion decreed
for Noah, and what we inspired to you, and what we decreed for Abraham,
Moses, and Jesus: "You shall uphold this one religion, and
do not divide it." The idol worshipers
will greatly resent what you invite
them to do. GOD redeems to Himself whomever He wills; He guides
to Himself only those who totally submit.
6. Some hadiths display an awful character of
the prophet. There are disgusting hadiths. There are even x-rated
hadiths. These hadiths blaspheme against the prophet and put him
down, the very person they want to exalt! The Quran says Muhammad
had a good moral character, like all other messengers.
[68:4] You are blessed with a great moral character.
5. Hadith cannot be verified or authenticated
that it is indeed the word of Muhammad. The Quran has a mathematical
structure based on the number 19. For example there are 114 (19x6)
chapters and 6346 (19x334) verses in the Quran. The first verse
of the Quran consists of 19 Arabic letters. For more info, please
refer to this
[74:30] Over it is NINETEEN.
4. Hadith can be used for historical purposes.
It should not be used for religious laws. God says the Quran is
the best hadith. It is sufficient for our salvation and fully detailed.
[39:23] GOD has revealed herein the BEST HADITH;
a book that is consistent, and points out both ways (to Heaven and
Hell). The skins of those who reverence their Lord cringe therefrom,
then their skins and their hearts soften up for GOD’s message.
Such is GOD’s guidance; He bestows it upon whoever wills (to
be guided). As for those sent astray by GOD, nothing can guide them.
