      Chief, thanks for the link:up:

      In Islam, the Arabic word sunnah has come to denote the way Prophet Muhammad (saas), the Messenger of Allah, lived his life. The Sunnah is the second source of Islamic jurisprudence, the first being the Qur'an. Both sources are indispensable; one cannot practice Islam without consulting both of them. The Arabic word hadith (pl. ahadith) is very similar to Sunnah, but not identical. A hadith is a narration about the life of the Prophet (saas) or what he approved - as opposed to his life itself, which is the Sunnah as already mentioned.
      does this mean that the Hadith is used in conjunction with the Quran?

      thanks & Stay Blessed

        Yes. The Qur'an is of course the word of Allah - and thus the primary source of all things. However, many specifics we can extract from the ways of the Prophet (saw). For example the Qur'an gives guidance on prayer we must perform (Salaat) and the times of day they are to be done, but the exact methodology (the number of rakat, the posture of the body, certain recitations) were all explained by the Prophet (saw).

        So together the Qur'an and Hadith give us a complete reference for all things in life.

        The science of Hadith is a vast and complex subject (you will find info in that site) - you can also search many Hadith collections in the above site.

        Peace.

          although there are a few pesky muslims like me who aren't altogether convinced of the regard that is given to the hadith. Not to say they are not important! just that many people give it the same weight as the Quran (People like my mother).

          In my opnion: The Hadith are historical writings that teach us about our religion within a historical and contextual context. The Quran is the word of God.

          I am in a minority i have learned but looking on line, it seems to be a growing minority.

            Concerning Hadith,

            He who obeys the Apostle obeys Allah (al-nisa:80)
            Nor does he say of (his own) desire. It is no less than inspiration sent down to him. (Al-Najm:33)

            Recommended reading : The Book of Following the Prophet's Path by Muhammed Iqbal Kailani.

                You may have misread my post, and the website :)

                Qur'an is the word of Allah.

                Hadiths are narrations by HUMANS of the Prophets sayings, actions and deeds.

                As the Qur'an instructs us to follow the Messenger of Allah, that makes the Hadith part and parcel of understanding Islam. :)

                Peace.

                  Craig, the Quran was sent down through revelation to the Prophet Muhammad Salallahu alayhi wa salam (May the peace and Blessing of Allah be upon Him) as a final book of guidance to all of mankind. The Hadith (traditions or sunnah) was the examples of how to live out the words of Allah Subhanaahu wa ta'ala (Glory be to Allah) which we have in writing in the Quran.

                  The Prophet Salallahu Alayhi Wa Salam, shows us in his examples the ways in which the ayats (versus) that are revealed to Him are to be lived out. When the ayahs of hijab (covering our adornments (the women)) were revealed to The Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam the wives and the women of the believers came out dressed a certain way and remained doing that until their death. This was our example of what that ayat was instructing us to do. Without these hadith we would struggle to have a more descript understanding of how we as muslims should live out the Words of Allah subhnaahu wa ta'ala. Areas that would be difficult for us, is the correct way to cover as muslimahs and muslim men, the proper way to fast, the proper way to make the daily prayers Salah, how to spend of our wealth, how to handle property in finer detail and the likes. There is much need of the Hadith in which we have been given. In Quran Allah makes mention that He has left us with two things the Quran and the Sunnah. That sunnah is meant by the every action of the Prophet Salallahu Alayhi Wa Salam. He is our living example of the Qur'an lived out i hope that makes sense...

                  I hope that helps you some inshaa Allah if you have more questions please feel free to continue asking inshaa Allah.

                    Dear Brother - Assalam-o-Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu,
                    The following brief article supported by Verses from the Holy Quran will Insha Allah be sufficient for the person, who denies Hadith but accepts the Holy Quran because Holy Quran / Allah SWT Himself has commanded us to follow the beloved Prophet SAW:
                    Sunnah - An integral source of Shariah

                    In today’s day and age, it is not rare to find a Muslim (or one who claims to be one), who might accept the Quran as a source of divine guidance, yet have doubts about the status of the Sunnah. And it is this confusion that leads these people away from the Quranic message, itself. For, we have to realize that a text can only come alive when someone lives by that text, to its fullest with the proper understanding of it. Now since this text (the Quran) is of divine origin, who better to exemplify its message than the bearer of the message himself. The Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him) was not a mere postman who delivered the message and disappeared. Acting under divine guidance, he not only delivered the message but launched a movement. He changed man and society; founded a community, established a state; and spent every moment of his Prophethood in guiding, directing and leading his followers. His life example of living by God’s guidance, consisting of whatever he did or said or approved, is the Sunnah. The authority of the Sunnah is firmly rooted in the Quran and in the historically continuous consensus of the Muslim Ummah.

                    The explicit statements in the Quran in this respect are many.
                    • Every Prophet was sent to be obeyed (al-Nisa 4:64).
                    • The Prophet Muhammad is the last and perfect model (Al Ahjab 33:21, 40). To obey him is to obey God (al Nisa 4:80).
                    • To follow and obey the Prophet is the only way one can love his God and be loved by Him and have one's sins forgiven (Ale-'Imran 3: 31-32).
                    • All matters which cause differences or disputes are to be referred to God and His Prophet as the final authority (al-Nisa' 4: 59).
                    • No one can be truly a believer unless he accepts the Prophet as the final judge in all affairs and submits to his decisions, willingly and free from all misgivings (al-Nisa' 4: 65).
                    • The Prophet has the authority to permit and prohibit (al-A'raf 7: 157).
                    • And, finally, whatever the Prophet gives must be taken; whatever he forbids, must be avoided (al-Hashr 59: 7).

                      Jazakumullahu Khairun & Wassalam, Masoud Ali Khan.

                      Hey Abu, was goin through this and found somethings i hope you be able to explain to me.
                      Every Prophet was sent to be obeyed (al-Nisa 4:64).
                      this i agree with.



                      The Prophet Muhammad is the last and perfect model (Al Ahjab 33:21, 40). To obey him is to obey God (al Nisa 4:80).
                      i can't remember where i read it, be it the Quran or the Hadeeth, not sure. anyways, are we not just to obey God alone?



                      To follow and obey the Prophet is the only way one can love his God and be loved by Him and have one's sins forgiven (Ale-'Imran 3: 31-32).
                      This sounds like a pre-requiste to get into Heaven,again its written here that one must follow and obey the prophet to have one sins forgiven.



                      All matters which cause differences or disputes are to be referred to God and His Prophet as the final authority (al-Nisa' 4: 59).
                      this suggests the prophet as a mediator between us and God,no? and i know it sounds like a stupid question which i actually know you'll take me up on, but who is the final authority, God or the prophet or God and the final prophet?



                      No one can be truly a believer unless he accepts the Prophet as the final judge in all affairs and submits to his decisions, willingly and free from all misgivings (al-Nisa' 4: 65).
                      According to Islam and the Quran is it not that God alone is worshipped, is it not God who is the final jusge in all creations affaira and to submit to God alone.

                      The Prophet has the authority to permit and prohibit (al-A'raf 7: 157).
                      The prophet takes on the role of judge, in what way does he take on this, when he suggested he didn't know what God would do with him in the after life?

                      And, finally, whatever the Prophet gives must be taken; whatever he forbids, must be avoided (al-Hashr 59: 7).
                      Is it not what God gives us that we accept and that which He forbids that we reject?


                      would appreciate your replies

                      Stay Blessed
