Sufficed themselves with the Quran

Since 2012-12-06

Indeed, what Allah?s Messenger made unlawful is like what Allah made unlawful?. [At-Tirmidhi, authenticated by Al-Albani]

 

 

The Misguidance of those who have do not refer back to the Sunnah and Sufficed themselves with the Quran

It is sad that some of the interpreters of the Quran and modern writers went as far as to believe that it is permissible to eat the meat of wild animals and to wear gold and silk, based on their confining themselves to the Quran. Actually, there is a group today who call themselves the Qur’aaniyoon (Quranians) who interpret the Quran according to their desires and personal understandings without taking consideration of the authentic Sunnah. They take from the Sunnah what suites their desires while neglecting the rest of it. It seems the Prophet (peace be upon him) was referring to such people when he said: “Let me not find out that one of you, leaning on his pillow [a sign of arrogance], comes to know that I commanded something or forbade it, then he says: We only follow what we find in the Book of Allah.” [Reported by at-Tirmidhi as Hasan Sahih (good authentic)]
»لا ألفين أحدكم متكئا على أريكته يأتيه أمر مما أمرت به أو نهيت عنه فيقول: لا أدري. ما وجدنا في كتاب الله اتبعناه«  رواه الترمذي، حسن صحيح

In another narration occurs: “…we only make unlawful what we find in the Quran to be so!” Indeed, I have been given the Quran and its like along with it [the Sunnah]”. [Ibn Taymiyyah]
...» وما وجدنا فيه من حرام حرمناه ، ألا وإني أوتيت الكتاب ومثله معه« ابن تيمية

In a third narration occurs: “…Indeed, what Allah’s Messenger made unlawful is like what Allah made unlawful”. [At-Tirmidhi, authenticated by Al-Albani]
...»وإن ما حرم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم كما حرم الله» رواه الترمذي، صححه الألباني

Unfortunately, there is writer who compiled a book on Islamic Sharee’ah and Aqeedah and in the introduction he stated that he had written the book having no references but the Quran.

The authentic hadeeth we have just quoted indicates without doubt that Islamic Sharee’ah is not to be taken solely from the Quran. Rather, from both the Quran and the Sunnah. If one claims that they hold on to one of them only then, such a person holds on to none of them, because each of them commands clinging to both together. Allah ta’aalaa says:

{He who obeys the Messenger (Muhammad salla Allah ‘alihy wasallam), has indeed obeyed Allah,} [An-Nisaa’ 4:80]
{مَّن يُطِعِ ٱلرَّسُولَ فَقَدْ أَطَاعَ ٱللَّـهَ}  النساء: 80

Transliteration: Man yutiAAi alrrasoola faqad ataAAa Allaha

And said:

{But no, by your Lord, they can have no Faith, until they make you (O Muhammad salla Allah ‘alyhi wasllam) judge in all disputes between them, and find in themselves no resistance against your decisions, and accept (them) with full submission.} [An-Nisaa’ 4:65]
{فَلَا وَرَبِّكَ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ حَتَّىٰ يُحَكِّمُوكَ فِيمَا شَجَرَ بَيْنَهُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَجِدُوا۟ فِىٓ أَنفُسِهِمْ حَرَجًا مِّمَّا قَضَيْتَ وَيُسَلِّمُوا۟ تَسْلِيمًا}النساء: 65

Transliteration: Fala warabbika la yuminoona hatta yuhakkimooka feema shajara baynahum thumma la yajidoo fee anfusihim harajan mimma qadayta wayusallimoo tasleeman

Allah also says:

{It is not for a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed in a plain error.} [Al-Ahzaab 33:36]
{وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى ٱللَّـهُ وَرَسُولُهُۥٓ أَمْرًا أَن يَكُونَ لَهُمُ ٱلْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ ۗ وَمَن يَعْصِ ٱللَّـهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَـٰلًا مُّبِينًا}الأحزاب: 36

Transliteration: Wama kana limuminin wala muminatin itha qada Allahu warasooluhu amran an yakoona lahumu alkhiyaratu min amrihim waman yaAAsi Allaha warasoolahu faqad dalla dalalan mubeenan

He also says:

{And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad salla Allah ‘alihy wasllam) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it),} [Al-Hashr 59:7]
{وَمَآ ءَاتَىٰكُمُ ٱلرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَىٰكُمْ عَنْهُ فَٱنتَهُوا} الحشر: 7

Transliteration: wama atakumu alrrasoolu fakhuthoohu wama nahakum AAanhu faintahoo

By the same token, I like the story of Ibn Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him) when a woman came to him saying: Is it true that you say: ((Allah has cursed those who pluck the eye brows for others and those who do it for themselves…))?

He replied: yes.

She said: I read the Quran from cover to cover but have not found that!

He said: If you have actually read The Quran then, you must have found it. Did not you read Allah’s statement:

{And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad salla Allah ‘alihy wasllam) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it),} [Al-Hashr 59:7]
{وَمَآ ءَاتَىٰكُمُ ٱلرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَىٰكُمْ عَنْهُ فَٱنتَهُوا} الحشر: 7

Transliteration: wama atakumu alrrasoolu fakhuthoohu wama nahakum AAanhu faintahoo

She replied: Yes, I did.

He said: I heard Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) say: “Allah has cursed those who…” etc. [Authenticated by Al-Albani]
