    Hadeeth, fact or fiction?

    The Arabic word Hadith means 'Narration'. In over 7 verses in the Quran, God refers to the Quran as a Hadith, ie the Quran is a narration, a Hadith from God. 'Muslims' around the world continue to believe in narrations of the prophet which were not even penned down until 250 years after the prophet's death. Not only are they very very likely completely inaccurate, the Quran also warns about these so called Hadith.

    7:185 Have they not looked at the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all the things God has created? Does it ever occur to them that the end of their life may be near? Which Hadith, beside this, does they believe in?

    31:6 Among the people, there are those who uphold baseless Hadith, and thus divert others from the path of God without knowledge, and take it in vain. These have incurred a shameful retribution.

    39:23 God has revealed herein the best Hadith; a book that is consistent, and points out both ways (to Heaven and Hell). The skins of those who reverence their Lord cringe therefrom, then their skins and their hears soften up for God's message. Such is God's guidance; He bestows it upon whomever he wills. As for those sent astray by God, nothing can guide them.

    45:6 These are God's revelations that we recite to you truthfully. In which Hadith other than God and His revelations do they believe?

    68:44 Therefore, let Me deal with those who reject this Hadith; we will lead them on whence they never preceive.

    77:48 When they are told, "Bow down," they do not bow down.
    77:49 Woe on that day to the rejectors.
    77:50 Which Hadith, other than this, do they uphold?

    Thoughts?

    My apologies for any spelling errors.

    I know some of you will come back and say that the Quran doesn't teach us how to perform Salaat. True, but the Quran does say that Islam was the religion of Ibrahim, and that Salaat was given to Ibrahim. I will do more research and get you the exact quotes.

    Secondly, think of the way the so called 'Hadith' teaches you how to pray, first you recite Fatiha (The Key) (note: The key is the only chapter in the Quran where man is talking to God, the rest are all God talking to man), after Fatiha where you talk to God, acknowledge his authority and beg him to show you the right path, you next recite any other chapter from the Quran, like surah Ikhlas. So you're praying, and after talking to God, acknowledging his authority and begging him to show you the right path, you then say to Allah, "Proclaim "He is the One and only GOd" (verse 1 of Surah Ikhlas, chapter 112.

    You're telling God to acknowledge that He is the only God?

    More thoughts?

      aahmed, nice try.

      In first verse you posted, you replaced word "message" with Hadith just to defame ahadeeths of the prophet.

      In the second verse you posted, you replaced "idle tales," with hadith just to defame something you can't prove wrong other wise.

      In the third verse you posted, you replaced "39:23 Allah has revealed (from time to time) the most beautiful Message in the form of a Book," with 'hadith' just to prove that you would USE conjectures and make up stuff in order to degrade the sayings of the prophet.

      Need I go on?

      In the fourth verse you posted, you replaced this: 45:6 Such are the Signs of Allah, which We rehearse to thee in Truth; then in what exposition will they believe after (rejecting) Allah and His Signs?

      No mention of "hadith," did rashid khilafa and Ghulam Ahmad Perviez told you to add "hadith" instead of other words just so that his heretic cult has some leg to stand on? Shame shame, you preach quran and at the same time you would corrupt it in order to mislead people!


      In the fifty verse you posted, you replaced this: "68:44 Then leave Me alone with such as reject this Message: by degrees shall We punish them from directions they perceive not." with your own word 'hadith,' like a desperate "know-how," who thinks by chaning some words in quran he can fool others like he has been fooled!


      In eighth verse you posted, you placed this: "77:50 Then what Message, after that, will they believe in?" With your own word "hadith" in order to slander hadiths of prophet.

      So many mistakes (you remembered to apologize for your "spelling" mistakes but you really need to apologize to GOD for changings words for your own AGENDA!... ), just to do what no one should: Discredit sayings of Prophet and his sahaba, the people who UNDERSTOOD QURAN better than anyone else ever did and never will! Same people who were far better Muslims than you and I.


      Thats it for now, see you later.


      PS: Is PA with you? You two buddies?

            Lets go over this verse by verse and let me make it very painful:

            And He, free of all imperfections said, Say (O Muhammad): Obey Allah and the
            Messenger (Muhammad).
            But if they turn away, then Allah does not like the
            disbelievers. (Aali Imraan 3:32)


            The verse says, OBEY ALLAH AND the Messenger. IT does not say OBEY allah OR the messenger! OBeying ALLAH meaning the QURAN, and obeying the messenger meaning, following HIS path to ALLAH and JANNAH!

              Serial Guppy,
              Some people love debates. Dont give them the pleasure. How about we wait, let him put forward his 'argument', and then proceed with ours.

              aahmed,
              >>You're telling God to acknowledge that He is the only God?<< This is the only point I could find from your post. We're reciting Allah's message in front of him, it seems like a sign of obedience to me, tell me one thing. Why do you even say Allah-o-Akbar, I mean, Allah know's he's Akbar, why should we be telling him that? Weak weak argument buddy.

              Secondly, please be sure to completely explain the process and philosophy of Salat and where it is derived from. No loose/weak arguments, and no loose ends. Many others have found one excuse or another to evade that question. Thanks.

                Serial,

                aahmed used the word Hadith from the Qur'an.

                Just taking one look at the different words you have put forth opens ones eyes.. Why so many different translations for one word.. Hadith??

                Each time the translators wriggle out of a tight spot by introducing a different translations for the same word used in ALL these verses.

                The arabic word used is Hadith. aahmed only posted that.

                Though I do not agree with his line of argument. There is no need to prove the supremacy of Qur'an by proving it teaches you how to pray Salat. It should be upheld just because it's the ONLY divine document present.

                The rest of the argument follows from it.

                  PakistaniAbroad- >>The rest of the argument follows from it. Yes thats a good way of saying 'I cant answer your questions. I'm stumped and confused over my beliefs'. Do you really expect people to just accept what you're saying? Put up a solid and complete argument. Anyhow no further on that in this thread, open up a new one if you wish to continue the other discussion and if you have anything solid to offer.

                    and does any of u know the meaning of the word HADITH????
                    or is it that anywhere u see this arabic word u link it to the ways of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)....
                    improve ur understanding of the Arabic language first and then try to understand the meaning of the Holy Quran and do not try to fool (or misguide) others by this stupid word-play....


                    now those of u who do not believe in following the SUNNAH of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), care to explain what Allah meant by the following verses of the Quraan....

                    inna lakum fee rasool-Allah usatun hasana
                    (and verily in the Prophet (pbuh) is a good example for u)

                    wa atee Allah wa atee ar-rasool
                    (and obery Allah and obey the Prophet)

                    qul in kuntum tuhiboon Allah fatabeooni uhbibkum Allah
                    (say that if u love Allah then follow me and Allah will love u)


                    and how do u follow the Prophet (pbuh) if u deny his SUNNAH....

                    toughts????

                    or is ur mind incapable of that????

                    Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.

                      The Qur'aan orders us to pray to Allah at over 70 different places.

                      How? and what Prayer?

                      Why would a Book tell us to do something, which is THE only purpose for our creation, and then not tell us how to do it:

                      051.056 I have only created Jinns and men, that they may worship Me.

                      Secondly, if there is no specific order/action of prayer, then the following ayat becomes null and void:

                      6. O ye who believe! when ye prepare for prayer, wash your faces, and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; Rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles. If ye are in a state of ceremonial impurity, bathe your whole body. But if ye are ill, or on a journey, or one of you cometh from offices of nature, or ye have been in contact with women, and ye find no water, then take for yourselves clean sand or earth, and rub therewith your faces and hands, Allah doth not wish to place you in a difficulty, but to make you clean, and to complete his favour to you, that ye may be grateful.

                      What prayer!

                      If the above ayat becomes null and void, then the following ayat becomes void:

                      054.022 But We have indeed made the Qur’an easy to understand and remember: then is there any that will receive admonition?

                      The domino effect will then take place!

                      All I ask, is to be shown in the Qur'aan, how do we perform the basic and most important task of our Purpose. Salaat.

                      Surely, someone must have the answer, because millions of people have been doing this task for over 1400 years!!

                        Serial Guppy, I'll stipulate to all your arguments if you can explain this to me, all the verses I quoted use the word 'Hadith' in arabic in the Quran, however, the translations you provided, all had different translations for the same word, for the word Hadith. Can you explain that?

                        Comment


                          #13
                          Aahmed, what does "hadith" mean in Arabic?

                          Different translators translated the word according to their understanding of ARABIC language. You translated it in way which fits your agenda properly.


                          Anyway, the topic here is Sunnah/ahadeeths of the prophet not Quran. According to scholars of Hadith, it stands for "what was transmitted on the authority of the Prophet, his deeds, sayings or tacit approval".

                          Quran says pray 5 times a day, sunnah tells us HOW TO PRAY and as Allah says in Quran that He has sent down His revelations to the Prophet that he "may explain to mankind what has been revealed for them."

                          If we didn't have that 'explanation' today, we would be fighting over how to perform prayer, how to pay zakaat, how to perform hajj and not if "hadiths" of the prophet are needed not needed, good or bad...!

                          Hadiths tells us in great detail about prophets life and what he forbade and what he permitted! Quran says: "He (meaning the Prophet) will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit only foul things. He will relieve them of their burden and the fetters which had encumbered them."

                          Quran also says: "Whatever the messenger gives you, take it; and whatever he forbids you, refrain from it." (59; 7)

                          How do we then find out about such matters which PROPHET use to do but are not in Quran? Ahadeeth books.

                          Now, instead of relying on conjectures and stupid thought, lets bring OUT some facts and solid references - if you wish develop some kind of credibility/sense in your argument.

                            That's exactly the problem, different translators translate the word in different ways, with different meanings... If you read my post carefully, you'll see that I did NOT translate the word, I used the word itself, hadith. So do me a favor, read my post before replying.

                            You haven't answered my question, why is the same Arabic word translated into 5 different English words? You say I translated it to fit my agenda, first off I didn't even translate the word, I used the word itself, hadith, second of all, if I can translate the word to fit my agenda, can't the people who did your translations translate to fit their agendas?

                            Think first, type later.

                              lets see....
                              the word SABAB in arabic means....
                              - reason
                              - the way
                              - destination
                              - luggage

                              did u never hear about the arabic being a "mobeen" language....
                              so vast in its meanings....
                              or do u want to contrdict the Quran's verse and say that Arabic isnt that wide a language and NO WAY can a word have more than one meaning....
                              and HADITH can only mean the HADITH-Al-RASOOL....


                              P.S. just for ur info, the word hadith also has a meaning which means MODERN....
                              ask any linguistic expert in Arabic language and he might tell u....
