[6:112] We have permitted the enemies of every prophet human and jinn devils to inspire in each other fancy words, in order to deceive. Had your Lord willed, they would not have done it. You shall disregard them and their fabrications.
Bukhari (and other collectors of Hadits) relied upon the self-invented art of “Transmission” for which he states that a “Hadith” may be accepted as authentic or rejected based on WHOM the Hadith is coming from. Bukhari made a study of the Prophet’s (PBUH) companions and established that they were all trustworthy. He then asked about people who came after them, and if the public “hearsay” was that this or that person was reputable, then Bukhari had no problem accepting a “Hadith” transmitted from that source. To get over the obstacle of “objectivity” and the fact that Hadith was based mainly on “hearsay”, Bukhari found a very convenient Hadith (which Islamic scholars still quote) that gives the companions of the prophet and all Hadith narrators super-human abilities which enabled them to memorise word for word the sayings of the prophet without loss or distortion. Although the above may not sound scientific or even objective to many, it is a factual method which was used to obtain the 2nd source of Islamic law.
Many opposing groups and other religions have made it a practice to embarrass Muslims by quoting “dubious” Hadith’s which compare a Woman to a Donkey (the Hadith on what stops Prayer) or that the Majority of Women will go to Hell! (Hadith about Isra & Mi’raj).
Many Muslims typically react to the above accusations by becoming angry and evasive, saying that these people want only to “Slander” the Prophet (PBUH). What these same Muslims fail to realise is that the “TRUTH” can withstand any amount of questioning and cross-examination.

However moved we may be, by the uniformity of our religious liturgy, the case with our Hadith somehow, does not seem to hold water. We must not omit the fact that nowhere has Allah held the responsibility of hadith, as it has done in the case of the Holy Quran. That is of utmost significance, since the hadith consists of parables and sayings of Messenger MuhammadPBUH and nothing else, we must consider Muhammad’s attitude towards hadith. If Hadith is part of Deen, then the procedures Messenger adopted for Quran are not implemented in the case of hadith. Like having it memorized, then listening to his followers for any errors or that he satisfactorily approved what had been dictated and written, that over and above all, it was in its pure and authentic form. Though the mind questions, if hadith is all that significant, why the Messenger did not take the same measures as he did in the case of Holy Quran? On the contrary, we find in that very hadith, Muhammad PBUH clearly says:
Do not have anything else dictated from me, save the Quran. If anyone of you has written any word other than the Quran, erase it!
We are also told that this was a temporary mandate from the Messenger. That at another time, it is observed, upon the request of Hazrat Abdullah bin OmarR, the Messenger permitted them to write down his sayings. As is noticed, the Messenger only permitted his followers, he did not make it mandatory for them to write, as we find he did, in the compilation of the Holy Quran. Moreover, he did not at anytime, ask as to what they had written or heard or question the verity of their writings. Neither we find MuhammadPBUH adopting measures to safeguard or preserve those hadiths as he had done with Quran. It is usually said and believed that in those days the Arabs had stupendous memory and also those sayings were very dear to the hearts of the disciples. Now the mind again questions, if memory was enough of a viable resource to be depended upon, why then was the need felt to have the Holy Quran dictated and written on paper, then recited again to remove any possibility of errors or mistakes during the process of its dictation. If any disciple of the Messenger had learnt those hadiths or sayings of the Messenger by heart, we still are not in a position to vouch for it. Until and unless those sayings were not verified, and the seal of approval cast on them by the Messenger Muhammad PBUH himself, we cannot depend on them. We also have no knowledge of the Messenger ever giving to the Muslims the Hadith in the form of a book and coming down to us through the generations. We observe the Messenger MuhammadPBUH did not take any of the precautions in the case of hadith, as he did for the Holy Quran. What we have gathered from the historical resources, is that we do find documents other than the Quran, that were written under the orders of MuhammadPBUH. For example, contracts, treatises and letters that he sent to other tribes. What in this matter, has come to our knowledge and what we have been able to gather, at the time of Messenger’s demise, are the following:
- A register containing the list of names of 1500 holy disciples or followers of Muhammad PBUH.
- The letters MuhammadPBUH wrote to various kings and rulers of that age or time.
- Documents of treatise and other obligatory rules.
- Hadiths from Hazrat Abdullah bin Omar, Hazrat Ali and Hazrat Uuns who wrote them on their own.
No one knows if these sayings written down were ever verified by the Messenger himself or not and whether they have come down to us in its original version. We have no knowledge of any collected works or hadith that Messenger himself gave to the Muslims before his departure from this world. We do in fact find in the Hadith of Bukhari, that someone asked Hazrat Ibn e AbbassR as to what MuhammadPBUH had left behind for the Muslims. He said,
‘The Messenger left behind nothing, save the Quran.’ (Bukhari, Vol. III, Fuzail ul Quran.) (Sahih Bukhari: Virtues of the Quran)
The Deeds of Disciples
As we glance through the names of Islam’s historic personalities, we notice that after Muhammad’s lifetime, the caliphate period is also worthy of being looked into. In the Musnad of Imam Ahmad we find the disciples saying,
“Whatever utterances we heard from Muhammad PBUH we noted them down in writing. One day it so happened the Messenger appeared and asked us about the subject of our writings. We replied that whatsoever we hear from his Majesty’s lips we transform it into writing. To which he said,
“What! Are you compiling another book along with the book of Allah?”
Meaning in other words that this cannot be made possible. He then insisted and commanded us that we ought to keep Allah’s words pure and that we must not amalgamate them with any kind of ambiguities. So we made a bonfire of our notes and parables in an open field.” (Quoted from Tudween e Hadith, page 249)
At another instance we find Imam Zuhbi mentioning Hazrat Abu Bakr who gathering the disciples of the Messenger, after his passing away said,
‘You people have so much self-contradictory gossip about MuhammadPBUH that you squabble among yourselves. The future generations will become more rigid than you all and quarrel more. You must not feign sayings of Holy Messenger that are fallacious. If anyone inquires you can always say that we have the Holy Quran between us. Whatsoever has been granted must be made permissible and whatsoever has been prohibited must be relinquished.’ (Quoted in Tazkara tul Hifaaz e Zuhby, page 321)
Then Imam Zuhbi quotes another parable of the Messenger’s wife Hazrat Aisha and writes:
“The wife of the Messenger mentions that her father (Hazrat Abu Bakr) had collected the Hadiths of the Messenger which were five hundred in number. She says,
‘One night I noticed that my father was restless in his bed and was very perturbed. I asked him if he was in some bodily pain or was this condition due to any bad news that he might have heard? He did not answer my question. In the morning he asked me to bring him the collection of Hadiths and then he made a bonfire of them all.” (Quoted in Tudween e Hadith, page 285-88)
As far as Hazrat Omar’s caliphate is concerned, Allama Ibne Abdulbur has mentioned him in his famous book Jama e Biyaan ul ilm, wherein he says:
“OmarR wanted to compile the sayings and parables of the Messenger. He asked from the companions of Messenger MuhammadPBUH to grant him a decree, to which they faithfully conceded. Inspite of the companions consent Hazrat OmarR was not convinced. For complete one month Hazrat OmarR performed Istekhara. Then one morning when Allah calmed his body and mind and he was able to concentrate on the issue at hand in serenity, he talked to his people about his decision to compile the hadiths. But then he said I thought about the generations that have passed before us, who wrote books and adhered to those books so strongly that they forgot the Book of Allah. I swear upon Allah, I will not let the word of Allah be amalgamated with other words.” (Quoted in Tadween e Hadith, page 394)
This was decided because the Messenger had ordered every companion not to ask him to dictate anything else besides the Quran. Whosoever has written anything else besides Quran must erase it. Omar did not finish the matter here. He not only prohibited and banned the collection of ahadith, he went a step ahead and as is written in Tubqaat ibn Sa’ad:
“During Hazrat Omar’s caliphate the ahadith were in abundance. He made sure by putting the people under oath that whatever hadith the people had in their possession ought to be brought before him. As ordered, the public submitted whatever they possessed. He then ordered to make a public bonfire of those hadiths.” (vol.5, page 141)
This was the third incident of igniting the hadith collection. The first ignition took place when the Messenger commanded. The second instance was when Hazrat Abu BakrR did the same with his own collection and the third time Hazrat OmarR took all the collections from the people under oath and publicly ignited them. All this took place in the capital city. As to what happened afterwards we get a glimpse of it in Hafiz Ibne Abdulbur’s Jama e Biyaan wherein he states:
“Hazrat Omar ibn KhattaabR first expressed his desire to compile the ahadith, it dawned upon him later that it will not be appropriate. So he sent a circular in the districts and cantonments to destroy whichever hadith anybody was in possession of.” (Tadween e Hadith,Vol.1, page 400)
He writes further and gives us a detailed account, of how elaborate and precautionary measures were taken for the compilation of the Holy Quran. If the government wanted, what possibly could have come in the way of adopting the same policy towards the compilation of the Hadith. He states that the government of that time did not adopt the same policy towards the Hadith with a specific purpose. This was the situation at the time of the Messenger and his companions, of hadith.
- The Messenger ordered his companions not to ask him to dictate anything else besides the Quran.
- Whatever Hadith collection was present among the companions, it was ordered to be ignited.
- Hazrat Abu Bakr made a bonfire of his own collection and banned others from quoting any hadith.
- Hazrat Omar after giving his best thought for one month, reached the conclusion to ban the compilation and collection of ahadith.
- Hazrat Omar also asked to submit all ahadith in possession of the public who were under oath and then ignited them all.
- He also sent a circular in all cities to destroy any evidence of hadith. This did not happen by chance, according to Maulana Munazar Ahsin Gilani this policy was adopted with a definite purpose in mind.
Muqaam-e-Hadith (The Actual Status of Hadith)
by Allam Perveez
October 22, 2006
Bukhari said: I have not included in my book al-Jami` but what is authentic, and I left out among the authentic for fear of [excessive] length.
Millions of muslims still follow these books blindly – why? Is Quran not enough?
September 19, 2006
This is what I believe in, that anything against Quran can not be said my Prophet Mohammad. The proof can also be found in the books of “Riwayyats”.

August 8, 2006
Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) was forbidden to preach anything but only Quran, that means he wouldn’t have taught biblical believes (infect the bible we have right now, and the one in Prophet Mohammad’s time was men written and was not the real bible that had been revealed to Jesus – I leave this topic for later discussion)
[2:79] Woe, then, to those who write the book with their hands and then say: This is from ALLAH, so that they may take for it a small price; therefore woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.
In Quran, Allah has warned Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) that the Christians and Jews will try hard to convert the believers of Quran into non-believers:
[3:100] O you who believe! if you obey a party from among those who have been given the Book, they will turn you back as unbelievers after you have believed.
[2:120] And the Jews will not be pleased with you, nor the Christians until you follow their religion. Say: Surely ALLAH’s guidance that is the (true) guidance. And if you follow their desires after the knowledge that has come to you, you shall have no guardian from ALLAH, nor any helper.
Here it’s even apparent that DO NOT follow anything except what Allah’s messenger is giving to you, that is of course the Quran.
[3:101] But how can you disbelieve while it is you to whom the communications of GOD are recited, and among you is His Apostle? And whoever holds fast to GOD, he indeed is guided to the right path.
So how could Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) teach us something which is not in Quran, but found in Christian and Jews books and of course now in the so called Hadits???? Wasn’t he told, warned and prohibited to follow the party who had given the books before Quran?
A lot of Mullahs justify the biblical teachings (which is also found in the so called Hadits) that they come from “Ahl-e-Kitaab” and the Prophet was allowed to preach what had been revealed before Quran, but isn’t the verse [3:100] completely rules out their claim?
Throughout the Quran Allah warns the Prophet (PBUH) to be on the lookout for the people of the Book as they will continually try to divert the Muslims from the Truth.
[3:186] You shall certainly be tried respecting your wealth and your souls, and you shall certainly hear from those who have been given the Book before you and from those who are polytheists much annoying talk; and if you are patient and guard (against evil), surely this is one of the affairs (which should be) determined upon.
Now, do you still think that Prophet (PBUH) would teach something that he was strictly forbidden to do? Would he sill teach something that Allah didn’t reveal to him? Would he preach bible or Jews scriptures? It simply isn’t possible – The answer is billion times “NO”.
If Allah is saying to give 100 lashes punishment for adultery how come he would teach to stone them to death?, if Allah is saying that leave apostates faith with Allah than how come he (PBUH) would kill them?? If Allah is saying to establish his divine system than how come he would change it to worshiping???
Think again what we are doing??? If you are reading this article that means you are still alive 🙂 and have enough time to follow the right path, that is Quran.
[3.102] O you who believe! be careful of (your duty to) ALLAH with the care which is due to Him, and do not die unless you are Muslims.
August 6, 2006
Quran can not confirm non-Quranic believes which are based upon Christian or Jew tradition and came to us (Muslims) in the form of so called “Hadits” (prophets saying/practice). From day one we have been thought by our parents, Imams or perhaps heard it from others that Allah has created women from the “rib” of the man. This is a very common believe, you can ask anyone and they’ll for sure say “Oh yah, this is true and I heard it from someone that I can’t remember but I know its 100% authentic because I also heard that its in Hadits” 🙂
Now to give you a shock and below away the false believe which from now on, after reading it, you SHOULD STOP spreading, and stop others doing the same. This whole “rib” business is a biblical story which you can look at yourself in Bible “Genesis 2:21-23” (do a search on google, I know you may not have it handy). I am not going to write the whole thing here but let me show you a few lines..
[Genesis 2:21-23] “But for Adam n suitable helper was found so Lord God cause the man to fall into deep sleep, and while he was sleeping he took one of the man’s rib and closed up the place with the flash. Then the Lord God made women from the rib taken out of the man ……..”
How can our prophet teach us something which isn’t in Quran? Furthermore, something from disbelievers? Read the following verse which makes this whole thing clear as crystal.
[Quran 3:100] O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! If you obey a party of those who have received the Scripture before, they will make you disbelievers after your belief.
This stupid story is not in Quran, nothing even similar to it, but you can surly find it in so called Hadits. This is what Allah says about believing in the above stupidity:
[Quran 3:101] How could you choose the darkness of ignorance when Allah’s verses are being conveyed to you and are being put into practice by the Messenger? Whoever holds fast to Allah, is already guided onto a Straight Path.
You know what Allah says about those people who just blindly follow without reasoning, like a cattle in a herd that follow others without knowing there they are going?
[Quran 2:170] And when it is said unto them, “Follow that which Allah has revealed”, they say, ” Nay, we follow that wherein we found our fathers.” “What! Even though their fathers used no reason at all and journeyed through life without any light?”
Can you observe anything here? How much do we really know about Quran and the real Deen? Yet many among us hold tight to the false Hadits and blame people like me (who speak out loud to defend Quran and bring out the truth) “deceiver” and “Munkar-e-Hadit” etc 🙂 I can only laugh at them !!
Death sentence for apostates is stolen from Bible:
In Quran Allah says
[Quran 4:137] Those who believe, then disbelieve and again believe, then disbelieve, and thus grow stubborn in denial of the Truth, Allah will not forgive them, nor will He intervene to walk them through to the Way.
Because there is NO compulsion is Islam [2:193] and why should they be killed? The whole point of Islam is peace, peace means no killing. It is such an evil concept, look what’s happening in Pakistan right now, Sunnis are killing Shiats just because some idiot Mullah has passed a fatwa that they are non-believers so kill them, same happens from the Shiats side. The bloodshed of innocent people will never be forgiven by Allah. So where the killing of Apostate comes from? it surly found in Bible.
Look what bible has to say:
[Leviticus 24:16] The one who blasphemes the name of the LORD shall surely be put to death all the congregation shall certainly stone him. The alien as ell as the native, when the blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.
[Deuteronomy 13:5] But, that prophet or that dreamer of dreams (who ever things differently) shall be put to death, because he has consueled rebellion against the LOARD your GOD who brought you from the land of Egypt and redeem you from the house of slavery, to seduce you from the way in which the LOARD your GOD commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from among you”
More killing in bible can be found at Deuteronomy 13:6-10
This is how Quran also proofs is:
[Quran 18:20] “For, behold, if they discover you, they will stone you to death or force you to revert to their religion, then you will never succeed.”
you see that! all the killing comes from Bible. In Quran there is not a single place where it says to kill apostate. What else can be harsher punishment than Allah’s Azab in hereafter?
Stoning to death is also from Bible:
Even though I have posted a few articles on Hudood laws but recently found the biblical reference of it. Its such an eye opening fact.
[Deuteronomy 22:23-24] If a man is found sleeping with another man’s wife, both the man who slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel. If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and he sleeps with her, you shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death. the girl because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the man because he violated another man’s wife. You must purge the evil from among you.
More can be found in [Levticus 20:10].
The same punishment as described in bible can be found only in so called Hadits, look at Bukhari volume 8, pages 209-210, Translation by Dr Mohammad Muhsin Khan).
“This is called to be the sermon delivered by Hazrat Umar during his last Hajj as Khalifa:
“Certainly GOD sent Muhammad with the truth and revealed to him the book. One of the revelations which came to him was the verse of Stoning. We read it an understand it. The messenger of God stoned and we stoned after him. I am concerned that if time goes on, someone may say “by God, we do not find the verse of stoning in the book of God, thus the Muslims will deviate by neglecting a commandment of the Almighty revealed”
Also, “when the verse of Rajam(stoning) and Raze-e-Qabar came, they were written down on a piece of paper and kept under my pillow. Following the demise of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) a GOAT ATE the piece of paper while we were mourning”
Also found in Sunan Ibne Majah, Volume 2, Pages 39, Published Karachi.
So according to Mullahs the verse was there but a HUNGRY GOAT just ATE it – MashahAllah. To find out the punishment of adultery, read my previous posts. Those so called Hadits can not be from Prophet (PBUH) in reality it is a great fitnah against him (PBUH).
READ THIS CAREFULLY, ITS VERY IMPORTANT: there are only five occurrences of pagans stoning Muslims in Quran:
[26:116] They said, “O Noah! If you do not refrain, you will surely be stoned to death.”
[19:46] He answered, “You dislike my gods, O Abraham? If you cease not, I will certainly cause you to be stoned to death!…”
[18:20] “For, behold, if they discover you, they will stone you to death or force you to revert to their religion, then you will never succeed.”
[36:18] The people said, “We consider you bad omens. Indeed, if you desist not, we will surely stone you, and grievous punishment will befall you at our hands.”
[11:91] They said, “O Shoaib! Much of what you tell us is beyond our comprehension. We see that you are not a man in power in our midst. If we were not concerned about your family and your tribe, we would have stoned you. You are of no value to us.
So who is stoning here???????? is it the practice of our prophets or Pagans??? See how Quran simply rules out this inhuman practise and shows how pagans where doing it. For more verses from Quran about punishing adultery is in Soorah 4, look at 4:22-26 for further reference.
These are the FALSE ulemas who have cause grief, brought upon pain, cause confusion and chaos among ummah. Their stands are from bible and false so called Hadits. Our prophet could never have followed anything but what’s in Quran. I’ll InshahAllah post another article very soon but for now Allah Hafiz.
[5:60] Say, “Shall I point out to you something much worse for retribution with Allah? Worse is the case of those whom Allah has rejected, and His Law of Requital hits them. And whom Allah’s Law relegated from the honourable stature of humanity and they started behaving like apes and swine (2:65). And they fell into becoming the slaves of TAGHOOT (tyrants and the priesthood of any religion (4:51)). Such are in worse plight, and farther astray than the mockers.”
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) didn’t and couldn’t have preached the biblical teachings as he was forbidden to follow the Christians and Jews, I have also quoted a few verses in the above article from the Quran as a proof. InshahAllah I will also post an article very soon about “WHY THE PROPHET COULD NEVER HAVE FOLLOWED THE BIBLE”.
QXP (Quran as it explains itself)
Hadit content similar to bible, Jonny
