Denying the Hadith

* Unveiling the masks of those who deny / disobey the hadith.

Be it ignorant or wise, whoever denies even a single hadith of Sahih Riyaat is a ‘Kafir’.

Let’s take a look at the clear verses and some hadiths Allah Almighty says-

* Say, “If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful. ” * (Al Imran-31)

* “Accept what the Messenger gives you, and refrain from what he forbids you, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in requiting (evil).” * (Hasr-7)

* “Allah has sent down to you the Book and the Wisdom, and has taught you that which you did not know. You have the great bounty of Allah.” * (Surat an-Nisa ‘: 113)

* “And he did not speak a lie, but only a revelation which was sent down to him as a revelation. * (An Najam- 3,4,5,6)

Some clear evidence in the light of Hadith and Asar:

Narrated from Abu Rafi ’(R). He said, “The Messenger of Allah, (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), said, “Let me not see any of you sitting leaning on his mattress”. Then he will say, “I do not know, I will follow whatever I find in the Book of Allah”. * (Abu Dawood 4605, Tirmidhi 2663, Ibn Majah 13, Musnad Ahmad 23349, Sahihul Jami ‘7172, Mishkat-162) [Sahih]

Narrated from Mikbadam Ibn Madikarib (R). He said, “The Messenger of Allah, (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), said, ‘Beware! I have indeed been brought the Qur’an and something like it along with it, yet the time is coming when a man replete on his couch will say, ‘Keep to this Qur’an; what you find in it to be permissible treat as permissible, and what you find in it to be prohibited treat as prohibited.” (Abu Dawood, Ibn Majah-12, Mishkat-163) [Hasan]

But what the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said is haram is similar to what Allah has forbidden.

Narrated by Mursal from Malik Ibn Anas (R). He said, “The Messenger of Allah, (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), said, ‘I am leaving two things among you. As long as you hold on to those two things, you will not go astray – the Book of Allah and the Hadith of His Messenger.’ (Mishkat-186, Muwatta Imam Malek-1594) [Hasan]

From the above verses and hadith it is clear that if the words of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and the direction of his actions had not been revealed by Allah, then Allah Ta’ala would not have commanded us to follow his orders. Therefore, it is becoming clear that the person who disobeys the hadith is a kafir. Because, by disobeying the Hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him) he/she is indirectly disobeying the commands of Allah. That is, the person who abandons the hadith will go astray.

  • Do those who disobey the Hadith think that, in the Qur’an where the number of rak’ats is mentioned as, four rak’ats of Zuhr, four rak’ats of Asr and three rak’ats Maghrib prayers?
  • Can the rules of circumambulation of Baitullah Sharif seven times, Safa-Marwar Sa’i seven times, position in Arafat and throwing on a piece of stone (in Mina) be found in Quran?
  • The Qur’an has instructed to cut off the hand of the thief, but the thief’s hand should be cut off from any place, is it written in the Qur’an from here to there? Or is it mentioned in the Qur’an what is the cost of goods the thief must have stolen for which his hand is to be cut off?
  • For every forty dirhams one dirham must be paid zakat, for how many goats, for how many camels do these nisabs found in the Quran?


So, the Qur’an is self-contained, but with the Hadith. Because the Qur’an has turned to Hadith for its explanation of innumerable matters, (it is proved from the Qur’an itself).

Imam Ibn Hazm (R) wrote in his book Al-Ahkam, “If a person says that we will accept only what is found in the Qur’an and will not accept anything other than that, then he is a disbeliever based on the consensus of the Muslim Ummah”.

Umar Ibn Khattab (R) said, “Soon there will be people who will quarrel, who have doubts about the Qur’an, so arrest them with the help of Sunnah or Hadith. Because the holder of Sunnah or Hadith scholar has more knowledge about the Book of Allah (Al Qur’an) “. * (Fiqhul Hadith page no.17)
