    Merits of the Companions (Part 1)

    Merits of Hazrat Abu Bakar RAT
    here are some hadiths from sahih muslim book 31. and these hadiths tell us how loved hazrat abu bakr RAT was to the prophet SAW. so any shia who clings to hating all the companions of the prophet SAW, you have been given proof, now its up to you to accept it and repent or not accept it and become trangrassors.
    Book 31, Number 5869:
    Abu Sa'id reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) sat on the pulpit and said: Allah gave a choice to His servant that he may opt the beauties of the world or that which is with Him and the servant chose that which was with Him. Thereupon Abu Bakr wept and he wept bitterly and said: Let our fathers and our mothers be taken as ransom for you. It was Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) who had been given the choice and Abu Bakr knew it better than us, and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) is reported to have said: Behold, of all people the most generous toward me in regard to his companionship and his property was Abu Bakr and were I to choose anyone as my bosom friend, I would have chosen Abu Bakr as my dear friend, but (for him) I cherish Islamic brotherliness and love. There shall be left open no window in the mosque except Abu Bakr's window.

    Book 31, Number 5870:
    This hadith(above) has been narrated on the authority of Abu Sa'id Khudri through another chain of transmitters

    Book 31, Number 5872:
    Abdullah reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: If I were to choose from my Umma anyone as my bosom friend, I would have chosen Abu Bakr.

    Book 31, Number 5876:
    'Amr b. al-'As reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) sent him in command of the army despatched to Dhat-as-Salasil. When 'Amr b. al-'As came back to the Holy Prophet (may peace be upon him) he said: Who amongst people are dearest to you? He said: A'isha. He then said: Who amongst men? He said: Her father, and I said: And who next? He said: Umar. He then enumerated some other men.
    (now shias do you have any doubts about how much the prophet SAW loved ummul momineen hazrat aisha RAT, whom you curse so much)

    these are enought to get he point across, but if you want more proof, http://straightpath.hypermart.net/

      Al Quran
      66. At-Tahrîm

      In the Name of Allâh, the Most
      Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

      1. O Prophet! Why do you ban (for yourself) that which Allâh has made lawful to you, seeking to please your wives? And Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

      2. Allâh has already ordained for you (O men), the dissolution of your oaths. And Allâh is your Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.) and He is the All-Knower, the All-Wise.

      3. And (remember) when the Prophet (SAW) disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his wives (Hafsah), so when she told it (to another i.e. 'Aishah), and Allâh made it known to him, he informed part thereof and left a part. Then when he told her (Hafsah) thereof, she said: "Who told you this?" He said: "The All-Knower, the All-Aware (Allâh) has told me".

      4. If you two (wives of the Prophet SAW, namely 'Aishah and Hafsah ÑÖì <> <><>) turn in repentance to Allâh, (it will be better for you), your hearts are indeed so inclined (to oppose what the Prophet SAW likes), but if you help one another against him (Muhammad SAW), then verily, Allâh is his Maula (Lord, or Master, or Protector, etc.), and Jibrael (Gabriel), and the righteous among the believers, and furthermore, the angels are his helpers.

      5. It may be if he divorced you (all) that his Lord will give him instead of you, wives better than you, Muslims (who submit to Allâh), believers, obedient to Allâh, turning to Allâh in repentance, worshipping Allâh sincerely, fasting or emigrants (for Allâh's sake), previously married and virgins.

        The interpretation and understanding of ayaat is not a layman's job. Anybody with malified intentions will always see the incorrect meanings. Try to read the tafseer of these ayaat instead of jumping with glee. Your ulema have taught you only hatred. They have not taught you Islam.

        Fear Allah!

            cuz they were only human and could have made a mistake.

            Read 66:1, the Prophet was critized too.

            Guidance is with ALLAH ALONE. He chooses whom he wishes. So let's quit following this family and that family and follow ALLAH ALONE.

              what about verse in Quran where Allah told us to obey Porpeht Muhammed (pbuh) and the fact that he doesnto speak himslef rahter Allah's word?

              as for the sura 66:1, its not a criticism.

                as for the sura 66:1, its not a criticism
                Would you prefer admonishment?

                How does 66:4 translate into criticism? Allah is warning the wives to repent and not work against the Prophet cuz their status is due to the Prophet whom Allah can give more wives better than them if Allah wills.

                This was only because their actions caused the Prophet to make something unlawful on his own which comes directly in the way of delivering the message because 'halaal' and 'haraam' are to be declared by Allah, not by the Prophet.

                Maybe you didn't read this:

                [al-Ahzab 33:6] The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, and his wives are (as) their mothers...

                now tell me how does it feel trying to malign someone who is to be considered as your own mother?

                what about verse in Quran where Allah told us to obey Porpeht Muhammed (pbuh) and the fact that he doesnto speak himslef rahter Allah's word?
                Once again, Allah didn't tell us to obey the Prophet, he told us to Obey the Messenger. There is a difference.

                Whenever Allah addresses the Prophet, he's addressing him in his personal capacity e.g. matters of his wives. When Allah addresses him as the Messenger it's due to his duty, delivering The Message, Qur'an.

                Hence obeying the messenger is obeying the messenger's message.

                And the verse about "your friend not speaking of his own desire" is about the Qur'anic revelations.

                [an-Najm 53:2] Your companion does not err, nor does he go astray;

                [an-Najm 53:3.7] Nor does he speak out of desire.

                [an-Najm 53:4] It is naught but revelation that is revealed.

                [an-Najm 53:5] The Lord of Mighty Power has taught him,

                Revelations in the Qur'an. Had it been the Prophet's daily communication, there wouldn't have been any need to reveal 66:1 in the first place.

                  how come in Quran Ayshea and Hafsa (ra) has been critised?
                  Ibrahim says: salaams to all

                  Dear iqra_786,

                  Maybe this might help you understand better, If Allah (swt) so willed.

                  Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith Hadith 6.434 Narrated by Aisha

                  Allah's Apostle used to drink honey in the house of Zainab, the daughter of Jahsh, and would stay there with her. So Hafsa and I agreed secretly that, if he come to either of us, she would say to him, "It seems you have eaten Maghafir (a kind of bad-smelling resin), for I smell in you the smell of Maghafir." (We did so) and he replied, "No, but I was drinking honey in the house of Zainab, the daughter of Jahsh, and I shall never take it again. I have taken an oath as to that, and you should not tell anybody about it."


                  Ibrahim says: The verse had been revealed reminding the Prophet (pbuh) that he should not declare to himself unlawful that which Allah had made lawful to him. The important point to bear in mind is that he was at once rectified by revelation, which reinforces the fact that the prophets are always under divine protection, and even the slightest lapse on their part is never left uncorrected, hence it has become part of revelation.

                  Was salaam
                  Ibrahim

                  Hope this might also expand your horizon


                  Maududi Sura Introductions
                  Surah 66. At-Tahrim


                  Theme and Topics


                  This is a very important Surah in which light has been thrown on some questions of grave significance with reference to some incidents concerning the wives of the Holy Prophet (upon whom be Allah's peace). First, that the powers to prescribe the bounds of the lawful and the unlawful, the permissible and the forbidden, are entirely and absolutely in the hand of Allah and nothing has been delegated even to the Prophet of Allah himself, not to speak of any other man. The Prophet as such can declare something lawful or unlawful only if he receives an inspiration from Allah to do so whether that inspiration is embodied in the Quran, or imparted to him secretly. However, even the Prophet is not authorised to declare anything made permissible by Allah unlawful by himself, much less to say of another man.

                  Second, that in any society the position of a Prophet is very delicate. A minor incident experienced by an ordinary man in his life may not be of any consequence, but it assumes the status of law when experienced by a Prophet. That is why the lives of the Prophets have been kept under close supervision by Allah so that none of their acts, not even a most trivial one, may deviate from Divine Will. Whenever such an act has emanated from a Prophet, it was rectified and rectified immediately so that the Islamic law and its principles should reach the people in their absolute purity not only through the Divine Book but also through the excellent example of the Prophet, and they should include nothing which may be in disagreement with Divine Will.

                  Thirdly, and this automatically follows from the above mentioned point, that when the Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace) was checked on a minor thing, which was not only corrected but also recorded, it gives us complete satisfaction that whatever actions and commands and instructions we now find in the pure life of the Holy Prophet concerning which there is nothing on record in the nature of criticism or correction from Allah, they are wholly based on truth, are in complete conformity with Divine Will and we can draw guidance from them with full confidence and peace of mind.

                  The fourth thing that we learn from this discourse is that about the Holy Messenger himself, whose reverence and respect Allah Himself has enjoined as a necessary part of the Faith of His servants, it has been stated in this Surah that once during his sacred life he made a thing declared lawful by Allah unlawful for himself only to please his wives; then Allah has severely reproved for their errors those very wives of the Holy Prophet, whom He Himself has declared as mothers of the faithful and worthy of the highest esteem and honour by them. Then, this criticism of the Prophet and the administration of the warning to the wives also has not been made secretly but included in the Book, which the entire ummah has to read and recite for ever. Obviously, neither the intention of making mention of it in the Book of Allah was, nor it could be, that Allah wanted to degrade His Messenger and the mothers of the faithful in the eyes of the believers; and this also is obvious that no Musliin has lost respect for them, in his heart after reading this Surah of the Quran. Now, there cannot be any other reason of mentioning this thing in the Quran than that Allah wants to acquaint the believers with the correct manner of reverence for their great personalities. The Prophet is a Prophet, not God, that he may commit no error. Respect of the Prophet has not been enjoined because he is infallible, but because he is a perfect representative of Divine Will, and Allah has not permitted any of his errors to pass by unnoticed. This gives us the satisfaction that the noble pattern of life left by the Prophet wholly and fully represents the will of Allah. Likewise, the Companions of the holy wives of the Prophet, were human, not angels or supermen. They could commit mistakes. Whatever ranks they achieved became possible only because the guidance given by Allah and the training imparted by Allah's Messenger had moulded them into the finest models. Whatever esteem and reverence they deserve is on this very basis and not on the presumption that they were infallible. For this reason, whenever in the sacred lifetime of the Prophet (upon him be peace) the Companions or holy wives happened to commit an error due to human weakness, they were checked. Some of their errors were corrected by the Holy Prophet, as has been mentioned at many places in the Hadith; some other errors were mentioned in the Quran and Allah Himself corrected them so that the Muslims might not form any exaggerated notion of the respect and reverence of their elders and great men, which might raise them from humanity to the position of gods and goddesses. If one studies the Quran carefully, one will see instances of this one after the other. In Surah Al-Imran, in connection with the Battle of Uhud, the Companions have been addressed and told:

                  "Allah did fulfil His promise (of help) to you: in the initial stage of the battle, it was you who were killing them by Allah's leave until you lost heart and disputed about your duty and disobeyed your leader, when Allah showed you what (the spoils) you coveted for there were among you some who hankered after the life of this world, and others who cherished the life after death. Then Allah caused your retreat before the disbelievers in order to test you, but the fact is that even then Allah pardoned you, for Allah is very gracious to the believers." (v. 152).

                  In surah An-Nur, in connection with the Slander against Hadrat Aisha, the Companions were told, "When you heard of it, why did not the believing men and the believing women have a good opinion of themselves, and why did they not say: this is a manifest slander?...Were it not for Allah's grace and mercy towards you in this world and in the Hereafter, a painful scourge would have visited you because of the slander. (Just consider) when you passed this lie on from one tongue to the other and uttered with your mouths that of which you had no knowledge. You took it as a trifling matter whereas it was a grave offence in the sight of Allah. Why did you not, as soon as you heard of it, say 'It is not proper for us to utter such a thing? Glory be to Allah! This is a great slander'."Allah admonishes you that in future you should never repeat anything like this, if you are true believers." (vv. 12-I7).

                  In surah Al-Ahzab, the holy wives have been addressed thus: "O Prophet, say to your wives: If you seek the world and its adornments, come, I shall give you of these and send you off in a good way. But if you seek Allah and His Messenger and the abode of the Hereafter, you should rest assured that Allah has prepared a great reward for those of you, who do good." (vv. 28-29).

                  In Surah Jumu'ah about the Coinpanions it was said: "And when they saw some merchandise and amusement they broke off to it and left you (O Prophet) standing (in the course of the Sermon). Say to them : that which is with Allah is far better than amusement and merchandise, and Allah is the best of all providers." (v. 11).

                  In Surah Al-Mumtahinah, Hadrat Hatib bin Abi Balta'ah, a Companion who had fought at Badr, was severely taken to task because he had sent secret information to the disbelieving Quraish about the Holy Prophet's invasion before the conquest of Makkah.

                  All these instances are found in the Quran itself, in the same Quran in which Allah Himself has paid tribute to the Companions and the holy wives for their great merits, and granted them the certificate of His good pleasure, saying: "Allah became well pleased with them and they with Allah." It was this same moderate and balanced teaching of the reverence and esteem of the great men, which saved the Muslims from falling into the pit of man worship in which the Jews and the Christians fell, and it is a result of the same that in the books that the eminent followers of the sunnah have compiled on the subjects of the Hadith, Commentary of the Quran and History, not only have the excellences and great merits of the Companions and holy wives and other illustrious men been mentioned, but also no hesitance has been shown in mentioning the incidents relating to their weaknesses, errors and mistakes, whereas those scholars were more appreciative of the merits and excellences of the great men and understood the bounds and limits of reverence better than those who claim to be the upholders of reverence for the elders today.

                  The fifth thing that has been explicitly mentioned in this Surah is that Allah's Religion is absolutely fair and just. It has for every person just that of which he becomes worthy on the basis of his faith and works. No relationship or connection even with the most righteous person can be beneficial for him in any way and no relationship or connection with the most evil and wicked person can be harmful for him in any way. In this connection three kinds of women have been cited as examples before the holy wives in particular. One example is of the wives of the Prophets Noah and Lot, who, if they had believed and cooperated with their illustrious husbands, would have occupied the same rank and position in the Muslim community which is enjoyed by the wives of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be Allah's peace and blessings). But since they were disbelievers, their being the wives of the Prophets did not help them and they fell into Hell. The second example is of the wife of Pharaoh, who in spite of being the wife of a staunch enemy of God believed and chose a path of action separate from that followed by the Pharaoh's people, and her being the wife of a staunch disbeliever did not cause her any harm, and Allah made her worthy of Paradise. The third example is of Hadrat Maryam (Mary) (peace be upon her), who attained to the high rank because she submitted to the severe test to which Allah had decided to put her. Apart from Mary no other chaste and righteous girl in the world ever has been put to such a hard test that in spite of being unmarried, she might have been made pregnant miraculously by Allah's command and informed what service her Lord willed to take from her. When Hadrat Maryam accepted this decision, and agreed to bear, like a true believer, everything that she inevitably had to bear in order to fulfil Allah's will, then did Allah exalt her to the noble rank of Sayyidatu an-nisa' fil-Jannah: "Leader of the women in Paradise" (Musnad Ahmad).

                  Besides, another truth that we learn from this Surah is that the Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace) did not receive from Allah only that knowledge which is included and recorded in the Qu'an, but he was given information about other things also by revelation, which has not been recorded in the Quran. Its clear proof is verse 3 of this Surah. In it we are told that the Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace) confided a secret to one of his wives, and she told it to another. Allah informed the Holy Prophet of this secret. Then, when the Holy Prophet warned his particular wife on the mistake of disclosure and she said: "Who has informed you of this mistake of mine?" he replied: "I have been informed of it by Him Who knows everything and is All Aware." Now, the question is where in the Quran is the verse in which Allah has said "O Prophet, the secret that you had confided to one of your wives, has been disclosed by her to another person, or to so and so?" If there is no such verse in the Quran, and obviously there is none, this is an express proof of the fact that revelation descended on the Holy Prophet besides the Quran as well. This refutes the claim of the deniers of Hadith, who allege that nothing was sent down to the Holy Prophet (upon whom be peace) apart from the Quran.

                    Jazak Allah khair, brother Ibrahim!

                    You have provided medicine for the current ailment. But the disease stays.

                    I wish to emphasise to all brothers and sisters that interpretation of Qur'an and ahadeeth is not a layman's job. Students like us must read tafseer by any renowned scholar to understand the reason and addressees. Without this and other knowledge, like abrogations and other related ayaat and ahadeeth, it is incorrect to conclude and be misled.

                      No one ever argued 'NOTHING' was sent other than the Qur'an. However all Laws of Religion and EVERYTHING WE NEED TO LEAD OUR LIVES AS A MUSLIM were revealed as Qur'an.

                      Allah's inspirations to the Prophet not recorded in the Qur'an were to guide The Prophet in his job of declaring the message. Just like guiding him to arrange the Qur'an as Allah instructed into a form different from the order of revelation.

                        Good, PA! Since you understand this, you should now reflect as to why Allah (swt) had enjoined that you obey the Apostle again and again, not because he was conveying the message as given to him but also because he was guided all the time and their followers are to follow the prophet’s ways ( sunnah) , not invent one for themselves according to their whims and fancies.

                        Let me show How Allah (swt) had ensured that we understand this :-

                        Read!

                        20: 90 Aaron had already before this said to them: "O my people! ye are being tested in this: for verily your Lord is (Allah) Most Gracious: so follow me and obey my command."

                        Ibrahim says: PA take Note, those that were rightly guided asked their followers to follow them, because they had been chosen by Allah (swt) and in the case of Aaron ( the Levites) to be priests to lead others in proper worship of Allah (swt) because they were taught the proper method of worship which had not been revealed in the torah.
                        Let me cross reference this to the Bible so that you will understand , what was being revealed to Prophet Moses (pbuh)

                        ( Allah (swt) addressing the Moses (pbuh) in this passage)

                        Exodus 19: 5. Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine,

                        6. you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites."

                        Ibrahim says: The Jews and Christians today have misconstrued this and believe they were the chosen people amongst mankind, instead of being chosen as priests for mankind at that time frame.

                        Prior to this Those that followed Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh) also ended up believing they were chosen to be priests…which is the reason why only the Brahmins are priests in the Hindu environment

                        Anyway Allah (swt ) revealed to us as to how Allah (swt) guides even the Prophets through others that have been assigned for that purpose and the prerequisites are that they have to be followed, if anyone wants to obtain true guidance.
                        Read!

                        18: 66 Moses said to him: "May I follow thee on the footing that thou teach me something of the (Higher) Truth which thou hast been taught?"

                        Ibrahim says: Remember Prophet Moses (pbuh) was guided by Allah (swt) and chosen form birth and apparently the only Prophet Allah (swt) spoke directly with and given a scripture to lead others aright . Yet He is being sent to another man to learn the things that he needed to know which Allah (swt) had taught him but not the Prophet.

                        67 (The other) said: "Verily thou wilt not be able to have patience with me!

                        68 "And how canst thou have patience about things about which thy understanding is not complete?"

                        69 Moses said: "Thou wilt find me if Allah so will (truly) patient: nor shall I disobey thee in aught."

                        70 The other said: "If then thou wouldst follow me ask me no questions about anything until I myself speak to thee concerning it."

                        Ibrahim says; Hence If you understood this passage, you will realize, that following those that have been guided are prerequisites for obtaining knowledge as well as ensuing that one is firmly guided on the right path.

                        Let me make this abundantly clear!

                        Read!

                        19: 41 Also mention in the Book (the story of) Abraham: he was a man of Truth a prophet.

                        42 Behold he said to his father: "O my father! why worship that which heareth not and seeth not and can profit thee nothing?

                        43 "O my father! to me hath come knowledge which hath not reached thee: so follow me: I will guide thee to a Way that is even and straight.

                        Ibrahim says; hence Following the Prophets (peace be upon them all) was essential for all of mankind because they have been given information and guidance that are not necessarily part of the revealed scripture.
                        Which means in our time frame we are to observe the path (sunnah) that the Prophet himself had trodden and that is only available to us thorough the hadiths, since we are not living in the time frame of the Prophet (pbuh) .

                        Allah (swt) had made this abundantly clear by revealing the following in the Qur’an

                        Read!


                        3: 31 Say: "If ye do love Allah follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful."

                        32 Say: "Obey Allah and His Apostle"; but if they turn back Allah loveth not those who reject Faith.

                        Hence PA, your negation of the hadiths amounts to the negation of the Prophetic teachings and that is where you have lost your faith.

                        However all Laws of Religion and EVERYTHING WE NEED TO LEAD OUR LIVES AS A MUSLIM were revealed as Qur'an.
                        Ibrahim says: Please ! don’t make a mockery of yourself, people have repeatedly asked you as to where in the Qur’an various matters related to proper salah as practiced by the prophet , details of hajj etc have been conveyed and you have been evading them with all sorts of answers including outright evasion as you tried to avoid them by summarizing and snipping them off altogether in your response.

                        You must be naive in saying “Everything we need” because if everything we need is found in the Qur’an , Allah (swt) need not assign a Prophet to guide for the message alone is sufficient.

                        Allah's inspirations to the Prophet not recorded in the Qur'an were to guide The Prophet in his job of declaring the message. Just like guiding him to arrange the Qur'an as Allah instructed into a form different from the order of revelation.
                        Ibrahim says: Please!~ The Qur’an is compiled as per Allah (swt) absolute wishes and I had already quoted the verses concerning it a few times already. The Prophet is guided so that he can set an example for others to follow. The Qur’an forms the backbone for the prophet’s authority as well as a prove of Allah (swt) existence and absolute authority over his creations.

                        The Prophets on the other hand are man who have been selected due to their humane qualities which they possessed and practiced and their sincere submission to Allah (swt), as leaders to lead others in various time frames.

                        Since Allah (swt) chose them and accepted their way of life, followers are to emulate such ways .

                        Hence the revelation

                        3: 31 Say: "If ye do love Allah follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful."

                        Was salaam
                        Ibrahim

                          Dear iqra_786,

                          Maybe this might help you understand better, If Allah (swt) so willed.

                          Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith Hadith 6.434 Narrated by Aisha

                          Allah's Apostle used to drink honey in the house of Zainab, the daughter of Jahsh, and would stay there with her. So Hafsa and I agreed secretly that, if he come to either of us, she would say to him, "It seems you have eaten Maghafir (a kind of bad-smelling resin), for I smell in you the smell of Maghafir." (We did so) and he replied, "No, but I was drinking honey in the house of Zainab, the daughter of Jahsh, and I shall never take it again. I have taken an oath as to that, and you should not tell anybody about it."

                          [/B]
                          So let's see;

                          The two (Aisha and Haifa), for reasons of jealousy or some other reason, decide to lie /e make joke on the prophet (pbuh) of Allah (swt).

                          Let's compare their behavior to that of other righteous wives like Ummil Momineen Umme Salma, and it becomes easier to see that this Aisha is the same woman who led an army to fight Imam Ali (as).

                          She was humiliated at the battle of Jamal as she was in the qur'an where Allah (swt) threatened her with a divorce.

                          With wives such as these two, the holy prophet (pbuh) did require divine help and guidance.

                          Thanks for making it clear for us Ibrahim.

                            http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/fundamen...m/013.smt.html

                            Book 013, Number 4016:

                            Ibn Abbas reported: When Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was about to leave this world, there were persons (around him) in his house, 'Umar b. al-Kbattab being one of them. Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) said: Come, I may write for you a document; you would not go astray after that. Thereupon Umar said: Verily Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) is deeply afflicted with pain. You have the Qur'an with you. The Book of Allah is sufficient for us.

                            Those who were present in the house differed. Some of them said: Bring him (the writing material) so that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) may write a document for you and you would never go astray after him And some among them said what 'Umar had (already) said. When they indulged in nonsense and began to dispute in the presence of Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him), he said: Get up (and go away)

                            'Ubaidullah said: Ibn Abbas used to say: There was a heavy loss, indeed a heavy loss, that, due to their dispute and noise. Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) could not write (or dictate) the document for them.

                            If indeed the qur'an was sufficient, why did the prophet (pbuh) insist on writing a document to prevent the ummah from GOING ASTRAY ?

                            Did Umar forget what Allah (swt) says in the following verses of the qur'an:

                            [Shakir 59:7] And whatever the Messenger gives you, accept it, and from whatever he forbids you, keep back, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in retributing (evil):

                            [Shakir 53:3] Nor does he speak out of desire.
                            [Shakir 53:4] It is naught but revelation that is revealed

                            [Shakir 49:2] O you who believe! do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet, and do not speak loud to him as you speak loud to one another, lest your deeds became null while you do not perceive.

                            May Allah (swt) prevent us from dis-obeying Him (swt) and his holy prophet (pbuh).
