The word hadith means news, information or story. This word hadith and its derivatives appear 28 times in the Koran. Never once in the 28 occurrences is there any reference to such a thing as ‘the hadith of the prophet’. Here are some verses from the Koran which do mention hadith:
39:23 Allah has revealed herein the best hadith (ahsana hadith) a book that is consistent, and points out two ways. The skins of those who reverence their Lord cringe therefrom, then their skins and their hearts soften up for Allah’s message. Such is Allah’s guidance; He bestows it upon whoever wills. As for those sent astray by Allah, nothing can guide them.
The Koran states clearly that the best hadith is indeed the Koran itself. All other hadith are therefore less than the best. As for putting faith in non Koranic hadith the following verses disallow it altogether :
45:6 These are Allah’s revelations (ayaat) that we recite to you truthfully. In which hadith other than Allah and His revelations (ayaat) do they believe?
77:50 Which hadith, other than this, do they uphold?
Other than Allah’s revelations or ayaat the Muslims should not be upholding any other hadith or narrations as a source of their guidance. This is a clear injunction in the Koran against non Koranic hadith.
The Koran calls itself the best hadith (39:23). The Koran then demands in which other hadith will the Muslims believe other than the verses (ayaat) of the Koran (45:6)? The challenge is repeated in 77:50, in which other hadith will they believe other than the Koran? These questions that are posed in the Koran are not meant to be answered in the affirmative. They are warnings telling the believers not to believe in any hadith other than the Koran.
Unfortunately after the prophet the mullahs have ignored the teachings of the Koran. They have instead been following the false hadith attributed to the prophet by names such as Bukhari, Abu Muslim, Tirmizi and others. The net result is that these non Koranic hadith have led the Muslims completely astray from the Koran and Islam.
Muslims should not believe any non Koranic ‘hadith’as originating from the messenger. The prophet would never have said anything outside the Koran and then claimed ‘This is my hadith and sunnah. It is also from Allah and you must follow it’. That would be an impossibility. Perhaps to emphasize this important point the Koran makes a threat upon the prophet:
“I swear by what you see and what you do not see. This is the utterance of an honorable messenger. Not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you believe. Nor the utterance of a soothsayer; rarely do you take heed. A revelation from the Lord of the universe. Had he uttered any other teachings in our name, We would have killed him. We would have stopped the revelations to him. None of you could have helped him” (69:38-47).
This is a very severe warning meant especially for the messenger that is found written in the Koran. If the prophet had uttered anything at all other than the Koran and attributed it to Allah (walaw taqawwa laa layna ba’da al-qa’weeli) then he would have been punished.
Therefore the non Koranic writings by mullahs like Bukhari known as the hadith and the sunnah are definitely not from the prophet. And on top of this, as we have seen in Chapter 5, the famous collection of hadith known as the Sahih Bukhari was not even written by Bukhari.
Yet it is these false writings that are upheld by the mullahs to torment the muslims all over the world. The violence, anger, poverty, indolence, backwardness and foolishness of the muslim masses all over the world is due to the belief in these non Koranic hadith. The Koran has been left far behind.
