In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Reviving Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h)
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

Amr ibn Awf reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Know that whoever revives my practice when it has died out after me will have a reward similar to those who act upon it without detracting from his reward in the slightest, and whoever innovates misguidance displeasing to Allah and His messenger will have a sin similar to those who act upon it without detracting from their sins in the slightest”, (Ref: Sunan-al-Tirmidhi_2677).

Quraan has answers to many things including Authentication/Validation of any books, booklets or documentations including the Quraan, Hadeeth, Bible, Torah(Old Testament), Gospel (New Testament), Book of Psalms (Zaboor), Vedas, and Geeta, etc., (Ref. Al_Quraan_016.089, 039.027-028).

Step-1: Test all Holy book, booklets or documentations to make sure it free from any contradictions/errors and also protected by Allah (God). It is the Quraan only, which fulfills this requirement completely (100%), (Ref. Al_Quraan_004.082, 015.009).

Step-2: Test all other Holy books, booklets or documentations including Hadeeth, Bible, Torah (Old Testament), New Testament (Gospel), Book of Psalms (Zaboor), Vedas, and Geeta, etc. with the Quraan, if it is contradicting the Quraan then reject it otherwise it may be accepted.

Step-3: For any documentation, including Hadeeth, each and every narration must fulfill the basic requirements of Authenticity/Validation as per Quraan, i.e. there must be two Sahabaas (male) witnesses or one Sahaba (male) and two Sahabiaas (female) witnesses, (Ref. Al_Quraan_002.282).

Any of the Hadeeth which do not meet the above mentioned criteria cannot fall in the category of Authentic as per the Quraan, no matter how authentic narrators have reported that.

Major divisions among Muslims (Shiaa and Sunnee) are due to not following the Quraanic Directions of Authentication/Validation of any documents including Hadeeth. Many of Shiaa’s claimed Hadeeth do not match with Sunnee claimed Hadeeth and vice versa.

Muslim Scholars need to do more research on each and every Hadeeth and DELETE / REMOVE all those Hadeeth from all the books of Hadeeth which contradict the Quraan.

Ali (RA) narrated, Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, there is NO DOUBT that, there will be Hadeeths coming after me, claiming that I have said those. So you MUST test each and every Hadeeth from the QURAAN. If it is really according to the Quraan ONLY then you ACCEPT it otherwise REJECT it, (Sanan Dar Qatni, Vol-2, Book – Imrani Abee Musa, Matba Farooqi – 513).

Each and every ayaat/verse of the Quraan is two in one:

1> Kalaam of Allah
2> Hadeeth Qudsi of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), because we got it from his mouth)

Deniers of Hadeeth-e-Qudsi are real Munkir-e-Hadeeth as well as real Munkir-e-Quraan. Not reading the Quraan with understanding/translation, which is complete, clear and easy (Ref: Al_Quraan_002.044, 005.003, 007.052, 015.001, 036.002, 041.044, 054.017), is another kind of real Munkir-e-Hadeeth as well as Munkir-e-Quraan, since don’t want to understand what Allah is saying, instead looking all around except the Quraan.

Roots of Downfall of Muslim Ummah could be due to giving preference of those Hadeeth which contradicts the Quraan as well as giving preference to Mullahs over the Quraan. Read the Quraan with understanding/translation and practice on it 100% to get real success in this life as well as on the Day of Judgment BUT Munkir-eQuraan will never do it.

Hadith Collections started around 250 years after Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), in around 900 AD and could have taken decades in collection. Muslim Ummah could have started giving preference to Hadeth over the Quraan in around 1100 AD and that could be the start of decline of Muslim Ummah, i.e., Leaving the Quraan.

There is no doubt that the Hadeeth, which were compiled 250 years after Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him). Many Muslims still in the beginning of 21st century believe that they are true explanation of the Quraan and we cannot live without Hadeeth in addition to the Quraan, since Allah clearly says to obey Allah and His Messenger (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), (Ref: Al_Quraan_004:059, 005.092). However, the protected document (the Quraan) cannot be explained by unprotected material (including Hadeeth). When the companions were curious of some jurisprudence related issues, Allah has revealed that He will explain those verses by other verses.

Great Thanks to all the Muslim Scholars of all time on collecting all those valuable treasure of Hadeeth.

When Great Muhadditheen of Islaam like Imaam Bukharee or Imaam Muslim were collecting Hadeeth, it was really possible that Munafiqeen (Hypocrite) of that time, who were unable to alter the Quraan, since it is protected by Allah, managed to present in an intelligent way, which might have confused Great Muhadditeen of Islaam and who included those as a human error. Allah protected the Quraan and the Quraan is Hakm.

Although some of Hadeeth which do not contradict the Quraan could be true explanation of the Quraan, However Hadeeth does not explain each and every verses of the Quraan. Just as an example, I could not find detail explanation of the Quraanic verses on the issue of Inheritance law in any of the Book of Hadeeth (i.e. Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawud, Sunan al-Sughra, Sunan al-Tirmidhi and Sunan Ibn Majah). So I had to write Global Islaamic Inheritance Law,

Allah has curses on those who conceal his messages, (Ref: Al_Quraan_002.159). Allah has commanded all prophets and messengers to deliver his complete messages as is without missing a single word and they did it during their lives, (Ref: Al_Quraan_005.067). No one have any authority to change Halaal into Haraam etc. including Prophets and Messengers, instead Allah commanded to revert back to Allah, (Ref: Al_Quraan_010.059, 016.117, 066.001-002). Allah’s commandments / words do not change, (Ref: Al_Quraan_010.064). Till second century after Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) only the Quraan was available, while Hadeeth were invisible and concealed.

When a person goes for surgery, Doctor gives anesthesia and then performs surgery to remove kidney, tumors, heart transplant etc. During surgery when patients are having anesthesia, don’t feel pain and don’t know what is happening to them. Same is true with this Ummah who got into trap of Imam Mahdi and are being butcher for centuries are being wiped out like Aboriginals have been and not having/feeling pain yet. Ummah is widely divided for which Allah clearly said those breaks up into sects are out Islaam no more Muslims any longer and they will be weaken and you can see how this divided Ummah is, (Ref: Al_Quraan_006:159, 008.046). When Prophet Isaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) was born, Allah asks Mariam (mother of Isaa) to shake Dates tree the tree then Date will fell down and you can eat it, but not for free (Ref: Al_Quraan_019.024-026). Allah Never Destroys the Good Nations, (Ref: Al_Quraan_011.116-117). Also, Allah Never Changes the Conditions of a Nation till their People (NOT their Leader) Changes themselves, (Ref: Al_Quraan_008.052-053). This Ummah must have to rise up and struggle in the right direction without dialing wrong number and learn/apply modern technologies in the light of the Quraan, to come out of this curse.

In the struggle for power and domination Quraan had been the biggest challenge to the Hypocrites. Although, they could not stop Muslims from obedience of the Quraan BUT they succeeded in giving them very wrong concepts about it. That was a great conspiracy which took them three centuries to establish the false beliefs and practices among the Muslims. These beliefs and practices are now falsely included into the Book of Hadeeth or Book of Sunnah of the Prophet (Peace-Be-Upon-Him).

During the life time of the Prophet and his companion, it was impossible to say anything against Quraan but after them there were no check and balances. The Hypocrites had flooded the Muslims' world with LIES and fabrications against the Quraan. If anyone questioned that such and such belief or practice is against the Quraan their reply had always been, like today, that this is Sunnah of the Prophet. This way the Hypocrites took away the Quraan from Muslims and succeeded in inflicting upon them an ignominious life.

Now, what happens they read lot of Quraan but for Thawab only and not for guidance. They establish prayers but to worship God and not to combat Fohsha wal Munkarat. They pay regular charity but to purify the wealth and not for its circulation among all classes in the society. And, when you ask them why they are doing this?  Everyone will reply this is Sunnah of the Prophet (Peace-Be-Upon-Him). And if asked who told this is Sunnah? They will name anyone from among the Companions who lived during the first century - for example, Omer (ra) or Aisha (ra) reported this and that. When asked who told this? They will name anyone from Taabe'heen or Tabb'a Taabe'heen who lived during the second century. When asked further they will ultimately confess that all this stuff came to us through Bukhari and other Mohaditheen who lived during the third century.

In other words, the Muslims are trapped into a great conspiracy. They are deceived to follow the path which is not found in Quraan. They think they are treading into the footsteps of the Prophet but, in fact, they are treading into the footsteps of Shaitaan. The interesting aspect of this conspiracy is that no one feels guilty. In spite of, all the sufferings and humiliations they are proud of what they are doing in the name of the Prophet and Islaam. No one likes to come out of this darkness. And, if any blessed soul endeavors to show them the right path they consider him an agent of the Enemy of Islaam. One wonders, what else the Hypocrites want to do with the Muslims? They had already sent them to the bottom of hell.

The truth is that the real source of Muslims' unity and honor is the Quraan. The Prophet (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and his great companions followed nothing except the Quraan. They never looked for guidance to any other historical or ideological source. They were solely inspired and motivated by the Quraan. When the Prophet (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) was alive and his life was the perfect embodiment of the Quraanic Values. After his (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) death, Muslims kept treading in his footsteps and followed the Quraan with more zeal and devotion. The Quraan elevated them to the highest level of morality and wisdom. They achieved great success and honor in the contemporary world and remained dominant as long as they followed the Quraan.

Scholars (Auliyaas) are the heirs of the Prophets, who have fulfilled their role in conveying the Quraanic Message and calling people towards Allah. They are the people of abundant good fortune, as the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said: "The scholars are the heirs of the Prophets, for the Prophets do not leave behind any dinars or dirhams (i.e., wealth), but they leave behind knowledge. Whoever receives this knowledge receives abundant good fortune." (Reported by Imaam al-Tirmidhi, 2606). And Allaah wills good for the scholars, as the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said : "Whoever Allaah wishes good for, He enables him to understand the religion properly", (Reported by Imaam al-Bukhaari, 69).

However scholars (Ulemaas and Auliyas) are (were and will be) human beings and may have done mistakes. We should NOT blindly believe on them, instead we need to check their sayings from the Quraan, (Ref: Al_Quran_009.031).

You must obey (always yes sir) to those Auliyas/Scholars, who are sincerely doing goodwill in the light of the Quraan and Authentic Sunnah. Please do not underestimate this person (Auliya/Scholar) if he/she is among your relatives or friends by behaving as if Home Grown Chicken is the same as Lentil (Chick Peas/ Daal) (GHAR KEE MURGHEE DAAL BRAABER), because Allah may question you on these mater. You must have a positive attitude for religious issues. Islaam teaches to respect teachers and specially those who are teaching Islaam for FREE and asking NO money for this service, (Ref: Al_Quraan_018.028, 004.059).

Ali (RA) narrated, Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, there is NO DOUBT that, there will be Hadeeths coming after me, claiming that I have said those. So you MUST test each and every Hadeeth from the QURAAN. If it is really according to the Quraan ONLY then you ACCEPT it otherwise reject it, (Sanan Dar Qatni, Vol-2, Book – Imrani Abee Musa, Matba Farooqi – 513).

There is NO Guarantee that if the Authentic Chain of narrations are correct, then the Hadeeth is Authentic, even if it contradicts the Basic Principles of the Quraan. By giving preference to the Hadeeth over the Quraan may put you in the category of Liar to the Quraan, which is an Extremely Dangerous Shirk, so Be Care Full.

Those who don’t read the Quraan with understanding/translation and don't Practice on Allah’s commandments are like ASS/Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).

BEST among you are those who learns and teaches QURAAN, (Bukhari_Vol_6_Book_61_Hadeeth_ 545).
In which Hadith, then, after it, will they believe, (Al_Quraan_077:050)?
And We have revealed the Book to you which has clear explanation of everything, and a guidance, mercy and good news for those who submit, (Al_Quraan_016:089).
None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah BUT those who Disbelieves ..., (Al_Quraan_040.004).
Non-Practice Muslims are like ASS/Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).
This Book (the Quraan), there is NO Doubt in it, is guidance to those who fear Allah, (Ref: Al_Quraan_002.002).
There are many Verses including the word Hypocrites (Munafiqun) in the Quraan.
Hypocrites Recites Quraan Practices Something Else.
Hypocrites don’t read translations of the Quraan to understand, if he/she don’t understand Arabic. Hypocrites don’t encourage to Learn Quraanic Arabic Language. Only Protected Book is the Quraan and all other Books including Hadeeth, Bible, etc. are NOT protected by Allah.
Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).
None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah but those who disbelieve …, (Ref: Al_Quraan_040.004).
