Ibn Abdillah As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori

Apart from the Qur'aniyyun (those who claim to believe in the Qur'an alone), we have among Muslims today those who reject hadiths on the ground that there are no corresponding verses with them in the Qur'an. We also have many people who reject hadiths based on their own defective thoughts. This is nothing but ignorance of the highest order. There are many of these people among those who attribute Islamic scholarship to themselves in our society without any justification.

What about the verses that commanded us to obey the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم? Is there any verse in the Qur'an that taught us how to pray 5 times daily prayers? And anyone who doesn't pray the way it is reported in the hadiths that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم prayed, his prayers would not be valid. We have to obey the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم in all His commands. 

While he was explaining the hadiths on seeing of Allaah on the Day of Judgment in his Sharh of Usul Sunnah, Sheikh Rabee' حفظه الله, mentioned the need for us as Muslims to believe in all the hadiths authentically reported from the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم no matter how it sounds. Some hadiths sounds odd in the ears of people of falsehood. But in the ears of the true Muslims, they are real and thet take them with embracing heart. [Sharh Usul Sunnah, pg. 23-24]

The Sheikh said that it is not allowed for a Muslim to reject even a letter from the authentically reported hadiths of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم because he (the Prophet) does not utter from his desires [Q53:3-4]. He mentioned the hadith of 'Abdullah Ibn 'Amr Ibn Al-'Aas who went to the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم and told him that some people are saying,

"لا تكتب عن محمد وهو بشر يتكلم في حال الرضا والغضب"

"Do not write what Muhammad says, he is a human being, he talks when he pleases and when he is angry"

The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم replied,

"اكتب، والذي نفسي بيده لا يخرج مني إلا حق"

"Write, by Whose Hand my soul is, nothing comes from me except truth" [Musnad Imam Ahmad]

This is a clear response to those who claim that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم did not order the writing of hadiths. No wonder, in a hadith, the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

"I have been given the Qur'an and something like it (Sunnah), yet a time would come when a man would come and say " we only need the Qur'an " [Sunan Abi Dawud, 4587]

May Allaah guide us aright.
