Head of Islamic Verdict Body (Mufti) In Egypt & Most Islamic Countries

  1. The Prophet (pbuh) stated that he follows Quran only & instructed to follow Quran only Q46;9

ۖ إِنْ أَتَّبِعُ إِلَّا مَا يُوحَىٰ إِلَيَّ

translation” I only follow what has been revealed to me”——-,thus for those who heavily refer to hadith , then I hope that they disregard any hadith enacting or making any religious judgments & follow Quran judgments only. Sheikh “Muhammad Abduh” (1849-1905) the Head of the Islamic Verdict body (mufti) in Egypt & most Islamic countries in his time wrote on that matter saying based on a hadith unanimously believed to be true & fully Sahih by all hadith scholars that the Prophet (pbuh) said

“الحلال ما أحله الله والحرام ما حرمه الله فى كتابه و ما سكت عنه فهو عفو

translation “Halal and Haram are what is stated by ALLAH in his book , and whatever he was silent about is pardoned (forgiven)” –. This sahih hadith makes all hadith fans revert only to quran for halal & haram & debunks & annuls any hadiths judging any halal or haram…

  1. Yet,to help reduce any conflict between those muslims who heavily rely on hadith & the muslims who heavily rely on Quran & suspect that many of hadith books were ever said by the Prophet , & for contributing towards more muslim unity & inter peace between them, I find no objection to a “hadith” that fully complies with Quran & does not abrogate it or override it or change it or twist its meaning or make any different or new judgments in any way whereby these complying hadiths can be considered only as a secondary non sanctified book guessed to be true unlike the Quran which is Islam ultimate source & Allah book & is all holy & true.
