Combat Kit To Use Against the "Quran Only" Muslims

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

It is very unfortunate that the Muslim Ummah has split. You have one side that says that the hadith are on the same exact level of the Quran and you have people who say that you shouldn't follow any hadith at all! It is indeed very sad and illogical for someone to reject the hadith of the Glorious Prophet. I am not intending to write a lengthy article on the subject. I have done extensive research throughout the internet and visited several websites to gather the best arguments against the Quran Only Muslims and combined them together.  What I am simply presenting are the links to those sites and some little additional information from my self. This is for Muslims who are debating with the Quran Only sect. You would find the information provided in this article to be very helpful and useful Inshallah.

There might be some arguments that Quran Only Muslims give that you might not be able to answer. However, if you have any trouble what so ever in dealing with them then email me at b_zawadi@hotmail.com

 

Some Questions to Ask the Quran Only People

How do you know how to pray using the Quran alone?

How do you know how much Zakaah to pay using the Quran alone?  

Hadn't the Quran been reached to us from the same sources we received our authentic hadith?

Why would Allah preserve the Quran and not preserve the meaning?

How much is the Jizyah that the People of the Book have to pay?

Does the Quran say that cross dressing is haram?  

The Quran says that men could beat up their wives. But we know according to hadith that this is a spiritual beating and not a harmful physical. What is to stop a man from misinterpreting the Quran and beating the hell out of his wife?

Is it permissible for a man to look at a naked man?

Can I pray Salaah naked?

How do we know the order of the alcohol revelations? Maybe the first of the Quranic revelations said it was haram and then the later ones came saying that is was okay except during prayer times. How do you know the order of its revelations by using the Quran alone?

It says in the Quran to shorten the prayer when you travel. How long do you have to travel? How short to cut the prayer?

In Surah 66:3, the Prophet told his wives that he knew because Allah had informed him about it. Show me a Quranic verse where Allah had informed the Prophet about it. You cannot. Does this not prove that there are revelations to Prophet Muhammad besides the Quran?

Surah 2:173 shows that Allah (swt) gave an order for the Muslims to change their Qibla from (Bayt Al Maqdis in Jerusalem) to the Kabah in Mecca. However, there is no Quranic verse that shows the first order that Allah gave to make the Qibla towards Jerusalem. Does this not prove that there are revelations to Prophet Muhammad besides the Quran?

The Quran is passed on to us by Mutawattir narrations. Mutawattir narrations are narrations by so many people that it is just impossible for all of them to get together and plot and lie. However, we have so many Mutawattir hadith List of Mutawatir hadith http://hadith.al-islam.com/bayan/Index.asp?Lang=ENG&Type=3 that teach things that are not in the Quran. How can you reject their authenticity with no objective evidence?

List of Quranic verses that Could Be Helpful

 

2:129

2:239 (this shows that Allah taught the Muslims how to pray)

2:151; 3:31; 3:32; 3:132

3:31-32

3:164 (messengers are sent to teach the scripture and al hikma could be the Sunna as well)

4:13-14; 4:42

4:59 (shows that Allah and Muhammad are separate to obey)

4:61; 4:64; 4:69; 4:80

4:113 God sent the wisdom

5:92 (the Prophet has to deliver the message clearly, what is the point if he just shows it to them)

7:157 (the Prophet will make things halal and haram for the people, why if they can just read the Quran?)

7:158

14:4 (messenger should make Quran clear)

16:44; 16:64, these verses show that Muhammad was sent to explain the Quran. It doesn’t just mean to proclaim. To proclaim is to ‘baligh’ like in 5:67.

24:54 (the Prophet has to deliver the message clearly, what is the point if he just shows it to them)

24:56 (why keep obeying the Prophet? What else does the Prophet have to say for us to obey him? Why can’t God just say to obey him?)

33:21 (he is an example for us to follow, eg. how to pray etc.)

33:36 (if Allah OR Muhammad made an order it should be obeyed. Clear distinction)

33:66 (why not just say obey Allah, isn’t that enough?)

62:2 (messengers are sent to teach the scripture as well)

64:12 (the Prophet has to deliver the message clearly, what is the point if he just shows it to them)

 

Prophecies From Hadith

This is taken from an Islamic Website:

I

 

It is reported from Adi Ibn Hatim Tai ??? ???? ??? that he was sitting in audience of the Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ???? a person came and complained that he was hungry. Another person complained against (highway) robberies. The Prophet ??? ???? ???? ???? then said to Adi Ibn Hatim Tai ??? ???? ??? if you would survive longer you would see that an aged woman will set out alone from Heera and come to perform tawaf of the Ka’bah ????. She would not fear anybody else but Allaah (SWT). To myself he said where would be robbers of Tai go who have ruined the township of the surrounding areas.

 

Then again he (Prophet ??? ???? ???? ????) said, ‘if you survived longer you would open the treasures of Kisra. I asked whether he meant Kisra Ibn Hermiz- and he confirmed it. Then again ‘ if you survive longer you will see that a person (Muslim) will be carrying gold and silver for Zakah and he will not find anyone to accept any Zakah.

 

Adi Ibn Hatim Tai ??? ???? ??? says that he saw such an aged woman performing Hajj who had traveled alone from Kufa and did not fear anyone except Allaah. And I was myself among the persons who took possession of Kisra’s Treasure. In respect of the third Imaam Baihiqi ???? ???? ???? says that it came true during the days of Umar Ibn Abdul Aziz ???? ???? ???? that it was difficult to find any poor to accept Zakah and he returned it to home.

 

II

Prophesy regarding conquest of the countries.

 

It is reported in many Ahadeeth, however, here I will quote what is reported by Baravon Azib ??? ???? ??? by Baihiqi ???? ???? ???? and Abu Naim ???? ???? ???? that in course of digging trench (for Battle of trench ????) they encountered a very hard stone which was unaffected by the tool. The matter was reported to the Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ???? and he examined the stone. Then after saying Bismillah (??? ???? ?????? ??????) struck it. One third of the stone was broken, at that time he (Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ????) said:

“I am assigned the keys of the treasures of Sham (Syria).”

 

I have also seen the red palaces there- then he (Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ????) struck for the second time and broke further 1/3 of the stone and said:

 

“ I am assigned the key of Faris (Persia) and I am presently seeing white palaces.”

 

He (Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ????) struck for the third time and entire stone was broken. Now he said:

 

“I am assigned the keys of Yemen. By Allaah I am seeing from here the doors of Sanaa.”

 

This prophesy about the conquest of the above countries was made at a time when the warriors of disbelievers ????? were doing aggression on Madinah ????? and trenches were being dug-up all around. In such a prevalent situation the prophesy of so many countries’ conquest is exclusive to Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ???? only. And Allaah (SWT) made it. The proofs (of miracle and/or prophesy came true) are Syria, Yemen and entire Persia as Muslim countries some of them even adopted the Arabic language as their mother tongue.

 

III

Prophesy of the victory over Egypt.

 

Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ???? said:

 

They would shortly conquer the country where qeerat is the currency. Do good to those people because they enjoy the rights of  ‘being under your responsibility’ and privilege of seeking mercy. Then said to Abu Zarr ??? ???? ???, ‘When you see that two men are quarrelling over a space of the measure of a brick- you should return from there.”

 

Abu Zarr ??? ???? ??? saw the victory of Egypt, settled there, and saw Rabia and Abdur Rahman Ibn Shurahbil quarrelling for the space measuring one brick’s length. Thereafter he returned from Egypt. The commentary is contained in Baihiqi and Abu Naim’s from Kaab Ibn Maalik and reminded that Hajar Umm Ismail ???? ??????, Maria Qabtia Umm Ibrahim Ibn Rasool Allaah ??? ???? ???? ???? are Egyptians. Again, needless to say that this prophesy also came to pass and Egypt fall under Islaam and even embraced the Arabic as its mother tongue.

 

IV

Prophesy about wearing King of Iran’s ornament by Saraqa Ibn Maalik.

 

Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ???? said to Surah Ibn Maalik,

 

“What will be thy stateliness when thou would be adorned by the ornament of Kisra) King of Persia).”

 

In another report of Baihiqi it is said that when Umar Farooq ??? ???? ??? received the ornament of King Kisra of Persia in the booty from that country he called Saraqa Ibn Maalik ??? ???? ??? and adored him with it (the Kangan). After decorating him Umar ??? ???? ??? said: “Thanks to Almighty Allaah who snatched from Kisra Ibn Hermiz  (who called himself Lord of the people) these ornament and adorned Saraqa Ibn Maalik Madalji.

 

Imaam Shafai ???? ???? ???? has commented that Saraqa was decorated with the ornament to integrate it with the forecast (prophesy) of the Prophet ??? ???? ???? ????. The shortest sentence of the prophesy (forecast) containing three events is significant for consideration (1) The integrity of the Caliphate of Umar ??? ???? ???   with the compliance of the word of Hadeeth/prophesy (2) The conquest of Persia and (3) Survival (living) of Saraqa till that time, he died in 28 Hijrah, few years later.

 

V

Prophesy about the conquest of India that came to pass.

 

We find this Hadeeth in Sunan Nasai and Baihiqi about India:

 

Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ???? assured that Muslims would head expedition to India.

 

Sultan Mahmood of Ghazna was the first to expedite into India in 393 Hijrah about a century after the death of Imaam Nasai ???? ???? ????. Readers must know that Muslims ruled over India for over thousand years. After it was looted and occupied by Christians (British) it was and still is called jewel in the British crown. During their occupation Christians systematically committed Muslims genocide. Christians’ especially killed the thousands of scholars of Islaam.

 

VI

Prophesy about the Fire that came to pass.

 

We find this Hadeeth in Sahihain (Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim),

 

“There will not be Dooms day until such a fire is not seen in Hijaz that would reflect on the camels of Busra.”

 

This Hadeeth is contained in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. Imaam Muhammad Ibn Ismael died in 256 Hijrah and Imaam Muslim Ibn Al-Hajjaj in 261 Hijrah. The books of these learned scholars and Shahihain had been published during their lifetime and were included in the courses of Islaamic studies. The fire in Hijaz came true in 654 Hijrah (Jamadi us-Sani) i.e. about four centuries after the death of Sheikhul Hadeeth.

 

The fire had been developed by volcanic eruption and there are many books on the subject. There is evidence of Sheikh Safiuddin to the effect that the very day of origin of the fire the Bedouin of Busra were able to see and recognize their camels in its reflection. This fire had developed on 1st of Jamad-us-Sani and tremor had intensified on the 2nd to 4th. BY the 5th of Jamad-us-Sani the entire horizon of the vicinity was covered under the think smoke and the mountain began to melt making the stream of red water flow from it. The fire was moving toward the Madinah, where the inhabitants of Madinah had passed their Friday night in the Masjid-e-Nabawi ????? ???? (Prophet’s Mosque) and did pray their entire night. In the morning the direction of the movement was changed. It is worth telling that during this fire caused by volcanic eruption, the wind that blew in the city itself was cool-breeze and not hot. These Ahadeeth also impeach the Kuffar and Hadeeth rejecters.

 

VII

Prophesy about the war with Turks that came to pass.

 

We find this prophesy in Hadeeth mentioned in Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari,

 

“The Dooms day will not come until you go to war with the Turks, having small eyes, red faces,

lower noses and their faces will be wider like shields.”

 

This prophecy that came to pass was about Tartaric invasion (whom Muslims annihilated three years later). In this invasion Mongols ruined Khurasan and Iraq and plundered them ultimately. Muslims annihilated tartars three years later and also defeated them in Asia Minor. This invasion took place around 656 Hijrah.

 

VIII

Prophesy about the victory of Constantinople that came to pass.

 

This prophesy is found the Ahadeeth books of Musnad Imaam Ahmad and Sahih Muslim as reported from Abu Hurayrah ??? ???? ??? and in Sunan Abu Dawud as reported from Mauz Ibn Jabul ??? ???? ??? in context of victory of Constantinople (Qustun-tunia {today’s Istanbul/Turkey}). Imaam Humam Ahmad Hambal ???? ???? ???? had died in 241 Hijrah and his book Musnad has always been before the scholars since his death. Sultan Muhammad Fateh conquered Constantinople in 855 Hijrah *1453 A.D. (sic centuries after the Book Musnad and 850 years after the Hijrat the world witnessed the eventuality as was prophesied by the Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ????. This was also the end of Roman (Byzantine) empire and birthplace of Christianity fall under Muslims’ feet. Turkey is now 100% Muslim.

 

IX

Prophecy that is continue to come to pass since last 1416 years

 

On the day of victory of Makkah on Thursday, 20th Ramadan 8 Hijrah, Prophet Muhammad ??? ???? ???? ???? while assigning the keys of Ka’bah ???? to Sheba Ibn Usman (Uthman) and Usman (Uthman) Ibn Talha said:

 

???? ????? ????? ????? ??? ?? ??? ??? ???? ???? ??? ????

“Take charge of this key forever. None would snatch it from you, but the one who will be an oppressor.”

 

In fact, the above Hadeeth (Prophesy) contain three predictions:

 

1.      The progeny of Abu Talha ??? ???? ??? would continue

2.      The keys of Ka’bah ???? (Baitullah) will remain in their charge

3.      He would be the oppressor, who would snatch they keys of Ka’bah ???? from them

 

About the 1st and 2nd the entire world knows (especially Muslims) that their descendants do hold the keys of Ka’bah ???? since 8 Hijrah or since last 1, 416 years. About the 3rd historians have reported that Yazeed snatched the keys from them for the time being. Since then there is no instance of anyone attempting to take away the keys.
