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



Download PDF


Sheikh Muhammad Abduh(1849-1905) Head of Islamic verdict body in Egypt & most islamic countries in his time  stated that the only immune & sanctified book is Quran , the only book & words of Allah to muslims  . He was conservative about hadiths but  said that there can be 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 . This approach will help  to avoid  or reduce differences & disagreements  between  muslims about hadith &  to maintain what maybe good advice & words in hadith without any further distortion to the religion by many of suspected or fake hadiths .

In sustaining this view of the Sheikh, please see the following assessment to Hadith as written by the Page editor hereby

1) IS “SAHIH HADITH” AUTHENTIC ? A book can only be called authentic if its author authenticated it & in a way protected it from forging . Quran was authenticated by ALLAH & his Prophet &Messenger (saws) & ALLAH pledged to eternally protect it as stated by ALLAH in his Quran , while the Bukhari book attributing hadith (speech) to the Prophet(saws) was never reviewed or authenticated or seen or even instructed to be written by Prophet , on the contrary the Prophet has banned any hadith writing (see item 3 in this post) & more than 99% of Bukhari gathered hadith is either fake or weak by the testimony of all hadith scholars themselves ( see item 7 in this post),so how come the Bukhari book can be regarded as Prophet authentic sayings?

2)ALLAH SAYS QURAN IS DETAILED & SELF CLEAR & UNDERSTANDABLE & PROTECTED & REFUTES BELIEF IN OTHER HADITH ; Islam Religion was fully completed by the Prophet (pbuh) before his death . Quran denounced & rebuked those who believe in any hadith after Quran& Quran stated that it is by itself explained & sufficiently detailed & protected by ALLAH from any forging , see below Quran verses

5;3 الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا

2;2 “ذَٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ

45; 6 تِلْكَ آيَاتُ اللَّـهِ نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ ۖ فَبِأَيِّ حَدِيثٍ بَعْدَ اللَّـهِ وَآيَاتِهِ يُؤْمِنُونَ

22;16   وَكَذَٰلِكَ أَنزَلْنَاهُ آيَاتٍ بَيِّنَاتٍ وَأَنَّ اللَّـهَ يَهْدِي مَن يُرِيدُ

Translation for above is ;

“This day I have completed (perfected) for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion”—-

” This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for those conscious of Allah” —-

“So in what hadith (speech other than Quran ) hereafter will they believe? .”——

“These are the verses of Allah which We recite to you in truth. Then in what hadith (speech) after Allah and His verses will they believe”

“Or do you have a scripture (else than Quran) in which you learn?. Indeed ,you find in it (Quran)anything you want “—-

“Book whose verses are perfected then detailed from [one who is] Wise and Acquainted”——-

“A Book whose verses have been detailed, an Arabic Qur’an for a people who know,”———–

“And We had certainly brought them a Book which We detailed by knowledge – as guidance and mercy to a people who believe.” ——-

“   And indeed, We have eased the Qur’an in your tongue that they might be reminded”, ———-

“ And thus have We sent the Qur’an down as verses of clear evidence and because Allah guides whom He intends”—————

“ –  ‘Follow what has been sent down to you from your Lord, (the Qur’an)! Do not follow other masters beside Him. How seldom you take heed! “———-

“Say (Muhammad) . I only follow what has been revealed to me. I am only a clear warner.’———-

“   Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian. “   ——

“Then do they not reflect upon the Qur’an?”—

“[It is] a revelation from the Lord of the worlds And if Muhammad had made up about Us some [false] sayings, We would have seized him by the right hand;We would have seized him by the right hand Then We would have cut from him the aorta.”—–

“And We have sent down to you the Book as clarification for all things and as guidance and mercy”——-

” But remind by the Qur’an whoever fears My threat.”

And I am commanded to be of the Muslims [those who submit to Allah] , And to recite the Qur’an.” And whoever is guided is only guided for [the benefit of] himself; and whoever strays – say, “I am only [one] of the warners.”

.3) PROPHET BANNED ANY HADITH WRITING ; Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has prevented writing any hadith & even those who gathered hadith admit this & published in their” Sahih Muslim “book that Prophet has ordered not to write anything after him except Quran,

لا تكتبوا عنى و من كتب عنى غير القرأن فليمحه و حدئوا عنى و لا حرج و من كذب على متعمدا فليتبوا مقعده من النار

translation“Do not take down anything from me, and he who took down anything from me except the Qur’an, he should efface that and narrate from me, for there is no harm in it and he who attributed any falsehood to me deliberately, he should in fact find his abode in the Hell-Fire”.Also note that hadith gathering & writing has started only 220 years after Prophet death , thus was not reviewed or approved by Prophet , & Khalifa Abu Bakr & Omar strictly prevented hadith writing & burnt any hadith scraps & hadith narration started only after Khalifa Omar death

4) HADITH DIVIDES MUSLIMS ; Quran for all muslims is a one book which unites them but what divided the muslims into tens of different & conflicting sects is the many Hadiths books & Narrations where every sect (Sunni or Shia & their numerous branches & off shoots) imposed its own hadiths beliefs & narrations & integrated them as an integral sacred part of the religion more or less as Quran , thus there became tens of Islam religion concepts that caused not only debate between muslims but massacres & blood baths & severe vengeance in many cases & ALLAH warned about this sectarian thing in religion Q16;159

“إِنَّ الَّذِينَ فَرَّقُوا دِينَهُمْ وَكَانُوا شِيَعًا لَّسْتَ مِنْهُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ

translation “Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects – you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything”———

5) MANY HADITHS ARE CONTRADICTORY TO QURAN & SMEAR ISLAM ; All crimes done under Islamic masks by criminal groups & sedition advocaters & extremist violent sects as crimes of killing & looting & piracy & kidnapping & transgression & enforced sex & unfair people treatment & opression & repressing of women either towards non muslims or towards muslims are based on so called “Hadiths” & narrations & history falsely attributed to Prophet, & this is because Quran by itself completely bans & not at all allow for these atrocities & definitely the Quran messenger will be the first & most to abide by Quran & these smearing hadiths are also found in ‘Sahih hadith”

.6).QUESTIONING BUKHARI GATHERING ; Hadith writing as previously said was banned by Prophet & this gathering started by “Bukhari “only around 220 years after Prophet death who attributed to the Prophet (pbuh) more than 700,000 “hadith & I cannot believe that he managed to scrutinize this large number especially that he said that he personally cross checked each hadith with at least 30 different persons & travelled extensively to remote places & mountains to meet the people he needed to check with & if we assume that this scrutiny resulted in one hadith every day , then he needed to work around 1200 years to scrutinize this number of hadiths, whilst Bukhari has spent only less than 20 years in gathering , vetting & writing his Sahih Hadith book , & this fact makes us suspect that the vetting & scrutinizing process was done properly

7 ) MORE THAN 99 % OF HADITH IS FAKE ; There are more than ONE MILLION gathered & recorded hadith by Bukhari & Muslim which were  later filtered  producing the ” Sahih Bukhari ‘ meaning “ Corrected Bukhari ” having around 7000 hadiths , then the book “Sahih Bukhari & Muslim ” meaning the “corrected Bukhari & Muslim ” having around 3000 hadith only out of more than one million gathered hadiths, this makes only ONE TO EVERY 330 of the one million gathered hadith are thought to be correct. So , if Bukhari & Muslim top hadith scholars who gathered & filtered the hadith admit that more than 99.5 % of the gathered hadith is UNTRUE & fake & only the remaining trivial (only less than ½ %) is   thought by them to be correct , then the question is why some people sanctify & cling strongly to hadith rather than Quran while Quran is the intact integral non debatable book of ALLAH , moeover many of the “ Sahih hadith” are clearly contradicting to Quran.

8) WHY MANY HADITH WERE FABRICATED ; Quran was made by ALLAH –as stated above- clear & easy to understand & comprehend   but unfortunately some so called “scholars” who wanted to maintain in a way some kind of religious authority & influence –which is not existent in Islam- chose to complicate religion so as the people remain reverting to them & asking for their interpretations & help & thus donating in their  cash boxes -same as what the Christian priests & popes did in medieval Europe-  so they promoted hadith & its importance & sanctity along with endless complicated fiqh books. Other fabricated hadith served the interest of certain sects or rulers as the one ordering full obedience to ruler even if he was a full unjust tyrant & oppressor & whipped the backs of his people & robbed their money &severely tortured them   & some other hadith used for con & deception as the fake hadiths of ‘ awaited Mahdi ” where many people through Islamic history have claimed that they are this Mahdi one & enjoyed brainwashing & dominating their followers & all these hadiths are totally NON compliant to Quran, this is  in addition to many fake hadith & narrations about the prophet & his companions justifying killing & robbery & raping exploited by criminal gangs operating under religious mask

9) NO HADITH IS NEEDED FOR CONSTRUING QURAN OR PRAYING ;   Now the claim that hadith is needed to explain Quran is refuted as stated in Quran-see above- & if someone says that hadith detailed prayer timing & procedure after that Quran asked us to pray , the answer is “No” because the act of praying was learnt by observing Prophet (saws) how he prays & learning from him & imitating him & not from hadith, there is even no “hadith” that prescribes praying & the only hadith attributed to pray learning is “Pray same as I pray” without any further detail or description,   moreover if praying has been learnt from hadith , then how come the muslims prayed all the 220 years before the hadiths were written , & if we assume -for the sake of argument- that we may accept only hadith or narration talking about pray procedures –if there is any such hadith- , then this consideration should not extend to accept or believe in any hadith that enact any judgments & Halal & haram because this is only enacted by Quran & any such hadith would definitely be fake & never said by Prophet

10)   MAKING HADITH PART OF THE RELIGION IS A DENYING OF QURAN which clearly stated that religion was completed by Prophet & is also ACCUSING the Prophet of delinquency & being short of doing his mission since he banned any hadith writing .If hadith was a part of religion , then the prophet should have ordered its writing & reviewed it same as he did with Quran but this never happened on the contrary,  he banned writing anything after him except Quran

11) IS ALL HADITH FAKE? ; The so called “hadiths science” is a human science subject to human error and corruption  Even if we assume that few maybe true, still this few number has opened the door for many other fake sinister hadith to get in & mar the religion ,& neither Allah nor his Prophet have ordered the writing of any hadith


25;18 نَسُوا الذِّكْرَ وَكَانُوا قَوْمًا بُورًا

translation “forgot the message and became a people ruined.”—–

وَقَالَ الرَّسُولُ يَا رَبِّ إِنَّ قَوْمِي اتَّخَذُوا هَـٰذَا الْقُرْآنَ مَهْجُورًا ﴿٣٠﴾ 25;30

translation “And the Messenger has said, “O my Lord, indeed my people have taken this Qur’an as [a thing] abandoned.”——-


مَّن يُطِعِ الرَّسُولَ فَقَدْ أَطَاعَ اللَّـهَ ——-

translation “He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah” & the Prophet has banned any hadith writing except Quran& he 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”——-& for those who heavily refer to hadith , then let them at least follow the Prophet instruction of banning hadith (see item 3 above) , or at least disregard any hadith enacting or making any religious judgments 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 muslims revert only to Quran for halal & haram & debunks & annuls any hadiths judging any halal or haram . Also our love to prophet should make us protect his pure biography from the slurs & lies told about him in many of the fake hadith calling for aggression , oppression & repression

..14) WHAT ABOUT OTHER HADITHS BOOKS ? the same  of all above  applies to all hadiths book either the famous Sunni Bukhari or Shia “Al Kafi & other books
