Shall we believe God and His Final Prophet? Or, shall we believe the “Muslim Scholars”?
تِلكَ ءايٰتُ اللَّهِ نَتلوها عَلَيكَ بِالحَقِّ فَبِأَىِّ حَديثٍ بَعدَ اللَّهِ وَءايٰتِهِ يُؤمِنونَ
These are God’s revelations that we recite to you, bearing the truth. Which Hadith, beside God and His revelations do they believe in? 45:6
وَأوحِىَ إِلَىَّ هٰذَا القُرءانُ لِأُنذِرَكُم بِهِ وَمَن بَلَغَ
Proclaim (0 Muhammad), “What better witness do you want?” Say, “God is the witness between me and you, that THIS QURAN was given to me to deliver to you and to the future generations. 6:19
أَفَغَيرَ اللَّهِ أَبتَغى حَكَمًا وَهُوَ الَّذى أَنزَلَ إِلَيكُمُ الكِتٰبَ مُفَصَّلًا
Shall I seek other than God as a source of law, when He sent down to you this book FULLY DETAILED? 6:114
ذَكِّر بِالقُرءانِ مَن يَخافُ وَعيدِ
You shall remind-with the Quran-those who reverence My promise. 50:45
(He did not say “with the Quran & Hadith”)
وَإِذا قَرَأتَ القُرءانَ جَعَلنا بَينَكَ وَبَينَ الَّذينَ لا يُؤمِنونَ بِالـٔاخِرَةِ حِجابًا مَستورًا … وَإِذا ذَكَرتَ رَبَّكَ فِى القُرءانِ وَحدَهُ وَلَّوا عَلىٰ أَدبٰرِهِم نُفورًا
When you read the Quran, we place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier …. and when you preach your Lord, using the QURAN ALONE, they run away in aversion. 17:45–46
وَمِنَ النّاسِ مَن يَشتَرى لَهوَ الحَديثِ لِيُضِلَّ عَن سَبيلِ اللَّهِ بِغَيرِ عِلمٍ
There are those who use vain Hadith to mislead the people, who possess no knowledge. 31:6
LET US USE OUR BRAINS
Let us look at “the most authentic Hadith;” one that was supposedly witnessed by 100,000 companions of the Prophet. These 100,000 people included Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthmaan, Ali, and the rest. While other Hadiths were witnessed by only a few people, this one famous Hadith was witnessed by all the Muslims. It is the Prophet’s Hadith of the famous “Khutbat Al-Wadaa` ” (The Farewell Sermon). We have three different “authentic” versions of this famous Hadith.
 According to the Muwatta’, one of the most respected sources of authentic Hadith, the Prophet said at Khutbat Al Wadaa`:
I am leaving for you two things that you must uphold strongly; the Quran and my Sunnah.
 According to Muslim (44/4, No. 2408), a very respected source of Hadith, and Ibn Hanbal (4/366), even more respected, the Prophet said at Khutbat Al-Wadaa, as witnessed by 100,000 companions:
I am leaving for you two things that you must uphold strongly; the Quran ands my family.
 According to Muslim (15/19, No. 1218) and Ibn Majah (25/84, #3074), very very respected sources, what the Prophet really said was:
I am leaving for you the Quran — only the Quran. You shall uphold it strongly.
There you have it. Now, what did the Prophet really say? The Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but the Quran.
(Message from Ahmad Wehbe)
Peace be upon you,
The pagan hadiths not only contradict the Quran, but they also contradict each other. Surely it will drive its readers insane!
Thank you and GOD bless.
