    Does hadith explain Quran?

    Bukhari Explains the Quran.

    The advocates of hadith are fond of saying that the hadith explains the Quran
    without which, they say the Quran cannot be understood. In other words
    without hadith they will have to reject the Quran or at least ignore it.
    The scholars also say that the hadith they call "Sahih Bukhary" is the best

    It can be easily proved that the hadith does not in any way explain the Quran
    and that the "Sahih Bukhari" is not worth the papers it is printed on.

    For evidence please refer to, and check all references of "Sahih Al-Bukhary"
    by Dr. Muhammed Muhsin Khan, Islamic University, Medina Al-Munawwara.
    Publisher "Kitab Bhavan, New Delhi, which is the Nine volume encyclopedia.
    Vol. 6 of "Sahih Al-Bukhary" is devoted to the explanation of the Quran
    (Tafsir). The other eight volumes prescribe things like drinking camels urine
    to cure fevers (vol 7, hadith no 590), burning people first and then their
    houses if they do not go the mosque on time, (vol.1, hadith no.626), dreaming
    of undressing women (vol 9, hadith no.139 and 140), using shoes to garland
    camels (Vol 2, hadith no 763), and other such non-sense.

    But let us focus on vol. 6: the explanation of the Quran by Imam Bukhary.
    Although the Quran has 114 suras or chapters, Bukhari does not explain all
    the verses in all the suras. Sura 2, Al Baqarah has 286 verses, but Bukhari
    only provides hadith for about 50 verses. This is slightly over 20% of Al
    Baqarah. Bukhari has left the Ulamma groping the dark over the remaining 80%.

    Sura AL Kauther (Sura 108) is the shortest sura in the Quran, only 3 verses.
    However Bukhari "attempts" to explain the meaning of just one word "Kauther"
    as sufficient to explain this whole Sura. Bukhari says; "Kauther" is a river
    in heaven.

    But simply, "Kauther" means "good in abundance". (Translation by President of
    Islamic research, IFAT, Saudi Arabia). This also suggests that Imam Bukhari
    did not know Arabic. It is a fact that Bukhari was a Persian from Bukhara and
    his mother tongue was Farsi. The scholars have no records to show when
    Bukhari learned Arabic. More about this later.

    The greatest surprise of all is that 28 suras of the Quran are NOT
    "explained" at all. The sura numbers are as follows; 23, 27, 29, 35, 51, 57,
    58, 64, 67, 69, 70, 73, 76, 81, 82, 86, 88, 89, 90, 94, 100, 101, 103, 104,
    105, 106, 107, and 109. Bukhari explains this away as follows "no hadith were
    mentioned here."

    According to the scholars only the Prophet is supposed to be the source of
    the hadith. The hadith is supposed to explain the Quran. The BIG question is,
    "Who went on un authorized holiday for 28 WHOLE SURAS of the Quran ?!!!

    The scholars insist that the hadith explains the Quran. Hence the scholars
    have to do away with 28 SURAS of the Quran because Bukhari did not explain
    these 28 SURAS..

    Therefore the boast by the scholars that those who uphold the QURAN ALONE and
    do NOT depend on the hadith at all, cannot understand the Quran, falls FLAT
    on its face. The scholars are in a far worse situation. 28 Suras are missing
    and none of the other suras are explained in full by Bukhari.

    To revert to the earlier point that the Persian Bukhari may not have known
    Arabic, this is suggested by the way Bukhari has changed the names of certain
    SURAS. By itself this is a strange phenomenon. The scholars themselves do NOT
    know why Bukhary did this.

    Non-Arabs sometimes refer to a Sura by its first verse. This is because they
    may not have known the Arabic name for the SURA because they are not scholars
    of the Quran or simply because they are not Arabs. Bukhari displays the same

    Sura Al Naba (Sura 68) is labelled as Sura "Amma yatasa'alun", this is
    actually part of the first verse of the sura.. Sura Al Baiyina (Sura 98) is
    labelled as Sura "Lam Yakun". Again the beginning verses. Sura Al Takwir
    (Sura 81) is labelled Sura "Idhash Shamsu Kuwirat". This is the start of
    the first verse again. Sura Al Maarij (sura 70) is labelled Sura "Sa'ala

    Some SURAS have been given two names. Sura Al Insan (Sura 76) is labelled
    Sura "Hal-Ata-insani" or Sura "Dahr".

    But this is a revealing point because such labelling is more akin to reciters
    who are not Arabs, who do not know the Arabic language. Apart from the fact
    that Bukhari was Persian from Bukhara many scholars believe that he was also
    blind. The next question is "WHO WROTE the Sahih Bukhari?!" It will also be
    pertinent to see how Bukhari handles some of the explanations of the
    verses-if and when he cares to explain them.

    For example some explanations end with a blank space.:
    Vol 6, Hadith number 50 seeks to explain Sura 2:223. After some narration it
    continues like this;
    Nafi' added regarding the verse: "So go to your tilth when or how you will.
    Ibn Umar said; " It means one should approach his wife in........" The
    explanation ends with a blank space. But not to worry. A footnote completes
    the picture. The footnote says "Al Bukhary left a blank space here because he
    was not sure of what Ibn Umar had said !." And yet this called "Sahih Al
    Bukhary" Perhaps this is why some scholars have much problems in this

    There is also one of the most foolish and incredible explanation by Bukhari
    for Sura 11:5. The beautiful meaning of the verse is actually :11:4 "To God
    is your return and He has power over all things."

    11:5 "Behold ! They fold up their hearts, that they may be hid from him. Ah!
    Even when they cover themselves with their garments. He knows what they
    conceal, and what they reveal. For He knows well the (innermost secrets) of
    the hearts." 11:6 There is no moving creature on earth but its substance
    depends on God; He knows its resting place and its temporary deposit. All is
    in a clear Record." Translation by Presidency of Islamic Research, IFTA,
    Saudi Arabia..

    This meaning is crystal clear. We all answer to God. There is nothing we can
    conceal from God. Every single thing that we do is in a clear Record.
    "Kitaab-un Maubeen". So do not think you can hide anything from God.

    NOW, Here is Bukhari's ridiculous explanation of the same verse in 11:5. Vol.
    6 Hadith no. 203: Narrated Muhammed bin Abbad bin Jaafar that he heard Ibn
    Abbas reciting: " No doubt! they fold up their breasts." 11:5 and asked him
    about the explanation. He said, "Some people used to hide themselves while
    answering the call of nature in an open space lest they be exposed to the
    sky, so the above revelation was sent down regarding them.

    According to Bukhari, the whole purpose of this narration was to tell the
    Sahaba that God could see them defecating and sleeping in the desert!.
    According to Bukhari's logic then, after this verse was revealed, the Sahaba
    who travelled with their wives in the desert lost all their inhibitions,
    since God could see them anyway. No need to hide anything.

    Similarly Bukhari twists sura 5:87. To explain "5:87" Bukhari first quotes it
    partially only, not in full, as follows : "O you who believe DO NOT make
    unlawful the good things which God has made for you" 5:87

    The explanation by Bukhari (Vol.6 Hadith no. 139) is as follows : Narrated
    Abdullah "We used to participate in holy wars conducted by the prophet and we
    had no women with us. So, we said (to the prophet) "Shall we castrate
    ourselves "? But the prophet forbade us to do that and therefore he allowed
    us to marry a woman temporarily) by giving her even a garment, and then the
    prophet recited. "O you who believe ! Do not make unlawful for you...."
    There is a footnote "Temporary marriage (Mut'a) was allowed in the early days
    of Islam., but later, at the time of the Khaibar Battle, it was prohibited
    (God knows it better)."

    The uncertainty in the footnote lends support to the fact that this is an
    evil lie against God and the prophet by Bukhari.

    Sura 5:87 is actually as follows : "O ye who believe, make not unlawful for
    you, but commit no excess. For God loveth not those given to excess."

    Is prostitution an excess ? Worse than that it is an evil. Which Muslim
    scholar will allow his daughter to receive "even a garment" as a payment for
    temporarily servicing the lusts of some Sahaba ? Note how the Bukhari has
    the sahaba coolly suggesting "Shall we castrate ourselves ?" as though it is
    done every morning after breakfast.

    In Sura 24:33 God and the messenger told us: "Let those who find not the
    means for marriage keep themselves chaste, until God gives them means out of
    His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing, (for freedom)
    give them something yourselves out of the means which God has given you. But
    force NOT your girls into prostitution when they desire chastity, in order
    that you make a gain in the goods of this life. If anyone compels them, (on
    them) God is forgiving, Merciful."

    In other words, do not look for sex outside marriage. If you cannot marry, it
    is better to keep chaste. Control your lust. The messenger said do not force
    anyone into prostitution, but instead Bukhari says the messenger set the
    price for hanky panky at merely a piece of garment. This is Bukhari's
    malicious lie against the Messenger. In truth the messenger told his men to
    control their lusts : Sura 24:30 "Say to the believing men that they should
    lower their gaze and guard their modesty, that will be better purity for
    them, and God knows all that they do."

    If anyone insisted on following their lusts, the Messenger would have told
    them " God doth wish to turn to you, but the wish of those who follow their
    lusts is that you should turn away from them, far away " Sura 4:27 (All
    translation from Presidency of Islamic Research, IFTA- Saudi Arabia).

    The Quran is crystal clear. But Bukhari says you can but a woman for a price
    of cloth. Perhaps the scholars are gleeful at this suggestion also.

    Here is another hadith that has neither head nor tail, It is started under
    "The book of the Virtues of the Quran". May God saves us. Vol 6, hadith No
    503. Narrated Valium Utham. "I was informed that Gabriel came to the prophet
    while Um Salma was with him. Gabriel started talking (to the prophet). Then
    the prophet asked Um Salma, "Who is this ? " She replied "He is Dihya (Al
    Kalbi). When Gabriel had left Um Salma said; "By God, I did not take him for
    anybody other than him ( i.e. Dihya) till I heard the sermon of the prophet
    wherein he informed about the news of Gabriel." The subnarrator asked Utham :
    From whom have you heard that ? Utham said "From Usama Binzaid".
    God sent Gabriel with the revelations to be delivered to Muhammed. Therefore
    Gabriel delivered the revelations to Muhammed. But here Bukhari says the
    prophet did not know Gabriel had come to him. Instead he asks his wife !!.
    Was the prophet's wife a Messenger also, such that she could hear Gabriel ?
    And she calls him strange names like Dihya and Al Kalbi.

    There is some confusion. Is God that inefficient that His angel Gabriel is
    called Dihya and Kalbi, all in the course of duty of delivering revelations
    to His messenger Muhammed ?

    Let us see 2:97-98: "Say, who is an enemy to Gabriel for he brings the
    revelation to thy heart by God's will, a confirmation of what went before.
    And Guidance and glad tidings for those who believe. Who ever is an enemy to
    God and His angels and prophets, to Gabriel and Michael, Lo..! God is an
    enemy to those who reject faith. "

    Gabriel brings the revelation straight into the prophet's heart (alaiqa
    Qalbika bi idhnillah) with God's permission. But Bukhary says Gabriel just
    started talking and the Prophet did not know who it was. He had to ask his

    "Verily this is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds. With it came the
    truthful spirit (Ruhil Kudus) to thy heart that thou mayest admonish, in the
    perspicuous Arabic tongue" 26:192-195

    Gabriel brought the revelation straight to the Prophet's heart . But Bukhari
    says the prophet had to ask his wife of Gabriel : "WHO IS THIS ?"

    It is easy to refute the Christian argument by referring to his own Bible. In
    a similar way the "muslim" scholar who insists on giving eminence to
    fabricated hadith can be countered by referring to his own books written by
    the hands of their leaders like Imam Bukhari, without God's permission.

    In Sura Al Baqarah, God says : Therefore woe to those who distort the
    scripture with their own hands then say; "This is from God" Seeking a cheap
    gain. Woe to them for distorting the scripture, and woe to them for their
    illicit earnings."

    As stated earlier the hadith of Bukhari is not worth the paper it is printed
    on. By following such ludicrous hadith which clearly taint the good name of
    the Prophet Muhammed, the Muslims have been lost for over 1000 years now.
    They can only recall the glorious days of the Prophet. Little do they realize
    that during the glorious days there was no hadith. There was only the Quran.

    God is Great.

    Dear amy,

    Imam Bukhari in His Sahi Bukhari do not intend to explain the Quran. His main intention was to collect, compile and write down large number of Hadiths that were available in the hearts of Muslims i.e, these Hadiths were not in written form.

    So Imam Bukhari has done a great job. He has collected and written down thousands of Hadiths.

    But what about the correctness of all these Hadiths?

    I think no responsibility lies on the shoulders of Imam Bukhari for incorrect Hadiths because he has also mentioned, with great effort, the names of narreters of all Hadiths.

    So if there is a wrong Hadith, its responsibility lies on the narretor or to the person who had described that Hadith before Imam Bukhari.

    How to judge which Hadith is correct and which is not?

    To make correct judgement about the correctness of a particular Hadith, Common Muslims will have to wait for Promissed Masih who shall be "Hakam Adal" for all internal and external disputes of Muslims.
    Since he would be "Hakam Adal" it means that he shall decide about the confused matters and his decesion would be on the right.

    But for those who believe in Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Sahib to be the promissed masih, they dont have to wait because Hazrat Mirza Sahib being the "Hakam Adal" has already set down the criteria for deciding about the correctness of Hadith in his lagend book "Kashti-e-Nooh".

    According to this criteria, a Hadith shall be considered to be correct if it is according to the teachings of Holy Quran.

    If a particular Hadith is appearently not according to Quran then the meanings of this Hadith shall be adjusted to confirm the teachings of Quran.

    If the meanings of that hadith cannot be made adjusted to Quran, then it is proved that this is not a correct Hadith.

    If a Hadith is not according to Quran and is composed of a prediction and that prediction comes true later on then that Hadith is true because its correctness has been verified by the God himself.

    Mr. amy, You should read this great Book.

        Definitely not Mr. Amy, Miss Amy is more appropriate, a little lesson in manners. Reply soon,

            Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

                  I think it is apposite of what you are thinking. ANY HADITH THAT GOES AGAINST THE VERSES OF QURAN SHOULD BE REJECTED. Not all Hadith narrotors were 100% accurate but it said that Hazrat Abu Harrira had very good memory and many Haidths are attributed to him so as Hazrat Aiasha as well.

                  Somtimes some scholers have interpreted Hadith in different ways so conclusions are only accept Hadiths from good source such as Bukahri and also pay special attentions to time of person collected the Hadith i.e. time after the death of Holy Prophet (SAW).

                  In my experience I always find Hadith supporting the Quran.

                  "Away from Eyes......Close to Heart"


                    Sorry Mr. oh...... Miss. AMY and thanx for teaching me the appropriate manners. Waiting for reply on the topic.



                      What explains the quran better than anyone else is the messenger of Allah yes or no?

                      When asked about the quran, it is narrated that Aisha said that you must look at the prophet.

                      Authentic ahadeeth therefore is an explanation of the Quran. And authentic hadeeth is not confined to Sahih Bukhari.

                      For example, if you read the great works of Tafseer they will use hadeeth to explain the meaning of the Quran. Read for example Tafseer by Ibn Kathir.


                        My response is very simple. I don't need a man made explanation in the form of Bukhari or anything else, to explain what God meant to say in Quran. Quran is complete and easy to understand and follow unless contaminated with explanations from various self proclaimed religious authorities. I follow what ever I understand and there are some verses which cannot be explained, so be it. That's between me and my God. So my Islam is very simple: God>>>>>>>>Mohammed>&gt ;>>>>>>Quran and that's it.

                        God bless you all. Have a great day. I have responded to all those who asked for it.



                          I have to admit I feel the same way.

                          If Quran is the message of God, why do we need Hadiths to understand it? The Quran always seemed fairly easy to understand.

                          If I live by Quran and ignore the Hadiths, am I still a muslim?


                            We can't understand Quran Without Hadit. I prove here

                            Quran Says Read Namaz......but how
                            How many Farads, when to read, what to read
                            Only Hadit tells you.

                            Quran Says keep
                            What is allowed and what is not during Roza
                            only Hadit tells you...

                            Quran Says Do Hajj......but how
                            Only Hadit Tells you

                            Quran says Do Wadu....but how
                            What breaks your Wadu, how to Wash yourself for Wadu
                            only Hadit tells you

                            I can go on and on but thats enough. If you are so knowledgeable then just try to understand the details of above very straight forward activities from only Quran.
                            Forget about more complicated problems.

                              Do whatever God says in Quran and interpret it the way you think is the best. Don't get caught in rituals prescribed by varius humans. If you don't know then how does bukhari know? Was bukhari a super human? Do your best to pray, clean , and perform hajj and let God be the judge. Who knows you might see bukhari in hell burning next to you.
