Styling themselves ahl-e-quran  or ‘people of the Quran’ the rejecters of Hadith are anything but friends of the Quran. By rejecting the hadith of Our Master and Mentor, Hazrat Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) the claimants to ahl-e-quran are in fact a’daa-ul Quran or enemies of the Holy Quran.

The fitnah of hadith rejection is once again struggling to resurface after the proponents of this apostasy were time and again beaten into submission by the efforts of the Ulema globally. This fitnah has gained prominence in some western countries such as the United States, Europe, and Australasia. Today this appears to rank among the major fitnahs threatening the iemaan of the Ummah.

Theses enemies of hadith reject all hadith compilations such as Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, Tirmizhi, Ibni Majah, etc. In so doing they have rejected the life of Our Master in its entirety. There can be no greater disservice to the Quran than this. After such heretic beliefs, these enemies of Quran can never remain Muslims if they ever had ieman prior to this.

The authenticity of Hadith and its position in Islam is self-evident and axiomatic. This is almost natural.  No Muslim needs proof for this. Belief in Hadith is automatic and indisputable. Hadith comes along with Quran, and the two cannot be divorced from each other. Hadith is as central to Islam as is the Holy Quran. These two Mighty Scriptures are corollaries. In spite of this, we advance hereunder a few very obvious and clear proofs from The Holy Quran itself for those who may be still in doubt.

In 25 places in the Holy Quran Almighty Allah enjoins “obedience to Allah and His Rasool”. Even without the help of any commentary it is clear that the ‘Rasool’ or Messenger referred to here is Our August and Sacred Master (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The command to obey His Rasool is a clear and convincing endorsement from Allah for The Hadith of Hazrat Mustafa (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), because it is the Hadith that we are instructed to obey.

In verse 165 of Surah Aala Imraan Allah Ta’ala mentions as a blessing and boon on the Believers four distinct functions of His Messenger. These are: Reading the verses of the Quran to the Ummat, making tazkiyah (spiritual purification) of the Ummat, teaching them The Book and Wisdom. Among these four teaching Wisdom and affording spiritual purification are functions that developed through Hadith and Sunnah. Even a kid in kindergarten will understand this. Are these ignoramuses so blind that they cannot even understand a simple concept as this? Deaf, dumb, and blind, they shall not return (to the right path) - Surah Baqarah.

In Surah Ahzaab, verse 21 Allah’s Messenger is portrayed as Uswatun Hasanah or a Beautiful Example. Could this beautiful example ever be realized without Hadith and Sunnah? Those who claim to believe in the Quran have to admit that there is just no where we can observe, study, scrutinize, and follow such an example except through the Divine Portal of Sunnah.

One of the lame and stupid reasons that the rejecters of Hadith advance for their kufr belief is that there is no reliable source of hadith existing in the world today. Without even attempting to test the validity of such an absurd and ludicrous averment, simple logic will refute it. If there is reliable collection of hadith today, then how reliable is the Quran that you believe in? Because the narrators and transmitters of the Quran are the same Sahaaba from Bukhari, Muslim, Nasaee, Abu Dawood, Maalik, Shaafi’ etc complied their vast anthologies. If these compilations are suspect in their entirety, then you, o enemies of Quran, have shaken the very basis of your belief in Quran!. Allah Forbid that we should incline to such kufr.

A FIQHI MAS’ALA
These Ahl-e-Quran are not Muslims; hence it will not be permissible for Muslims to marry them or to have any dealings with them whatsoever. They must be treated like murtadds.
