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?

Tasreef is the Quranic process where verses in one part of the Quran explain or provide deeper understanding of the verses in other parts of the Book. Concisely, it means looking at the Qur’an in its Big Picture. Quran explains it self, thats the claim of Allah.Tafseer should not be based on extrinsic sources such as Hadith and History. That trend, in the distant and recent past, has only served to enslave the Word of God to man-made traditions and it takes away the profound Glory of the Divine Message.
The following THREE PRINCIPLES applied in this rendition of the Quran are not of human making.
The Qur’an maintains that:
- 1 – It explains itself. [(6:115),(10:37), (75:17-19)]
- 2 – It repeats its verses from different vantage points for clear understanding [(17:41), (17:89), (18:54)]
- 3 – It has been revealed in the Plain Arabic of its times. [(12:2), (20:113), (39:28)]
The Quraish were the tribe in Makkah in which the exalted Prophet was born and raised, and the Makkans were the first addressees, therefore, the Qur’an was revealed to him in their dialect.
There are 114 Chapters (Surahs) in the Qur’an with just over 6,200 verses in all. By volume, the Qur’an is a much smaller Book than the Bible.
QXP, Quran as it explains itself.

Idol worship, or associating partners with Allah , is the only unforgivable sin that is mentioned in the Quran. Yet, it seems that for the majority of us, our minds cannot accept Allah Alone!.
[4:48] “Allah DOES NOT FORGIVE that partners be established with Him, but He forgives other than that to whom He wishes”
And the ultimate test can only be:
[39:45] “When The God (Allah) ALONE is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter shrink with aversion. But when idols are mentioned besides Him, they rejoice.”
Did talking about upholding the Quran Alone bother you?. Or does your heart really believe?
[39:18] “They are the ones who examine all words, then follow the best. These are the ones whom GOD (Allah) has guided; these are the ones who possess intelligence.”

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”.
