Are hadiths legitimate?

May God forgive me and guide me regarding anything that would have been misinterpreted in this study and elsewhere. May He always guide us to a better understanding of His profound scripture so we can purify ourselves and increase our knowledge.

تِلْكَ آيَاتُ اللَّهِ نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ

فَبِأَيِّ حَدِيثٍ بَعْدَ اللَّهِ وَآيَاتِهِ يُؤْمِنُونَ

(45:6) These are God’s verses which we recite unto you [O Muhammad] truthfully. Therefore, in which HADITH other than GOD and His verses do they believe in?

Are hadiths and Sunnah truly part of Islam or are they baseless traditions which distort the message of peace described in the Holy Quran?

The term “hadith” refers to sayings attributed to the prophet Muhammad. The word “Sunnah” refers to religious traditions allegedly established by Muhammad, and authenticated through a consensus of his companions. Even though the Quran proclaims it is fully detailed and contains the details of everything (7:52, 6:114. 10:37), an overwhelming majority of Muslims inherited the traditional belief that they need hadiths and sunnah to understand, clarify or add more details to the Quran.

1. We are going to introduce the subject by witnessing about 50 hadiths surprisingly classified as “Sahih” (authentic), ranging from the most violent and despicable to the most absurd, and point at some indisputable contradictions among hadiths and between hadiths and the Quran.

2. We will explain why some apparently beautiful hadiths are used as bait to lure people into following so called sahih hadiths, and we will prove why even seemingly beautiful hadiths are false.

3. Sunni and Shia scholars point at a number of Quranic verses to claim that the Book of God acknowledges Hadiths and Sunnah as a necessary part of the Islamic religion. We will prove that Sunni and Shia Islam have diverted their original meanings to impose traditions which disfigure Islam.

Unlike the Quran which was fully written down during Muhammad’s ministry, both Hadiths and Sunnah are traditions that were allegedly passed down orally for a hundred years for the earliest hadiths written down (imam Malik) and about two hundred years for the most important Sunni compilations (Bukhari and Muslim). A key Quranic verse will explain why early Muslims were terrified to write down anything else but the Quran.

4. The Quran provides extensive good and bad examples of human behavior (including messengers) upon which we are invited to meditate. The first Sunni and Shia Scholars had no choice but to face the fact that some of Muhammad’s mistakes are uncompromisingly depicted in the Quran. This is why traditional scholars invented the doctrine that messengers are infallible and that the only mistakes Muhammad (or other messengers) ever made in his life are only the ones mentioned in the Quran. We will easily shatter such a doctrine quoting a verse of the Quran.

5. We will then provide evidence that the only authentic and reliable Hadiths that Muslims are allowed to follow are the ones directly found in the last revelation citing one key Quranic Hadith where Muhammad proclaims that He and other Muslims must follow the Quran exclusively.

6. A number of Hadiths led to the creation of religious laws that violate and contradict the letter and spirit of the Holy Quran. Instead of acknowledging that such hadiths are false, proving that hadiths as a whole are not reliable and extremely dangerous when it comes to preserve the integrity and purity of Islam, Sunni and Shia Muslims chose to betray God and his revelations by giving precedence to Hadiths over the Quran, some even going as far as saying that some hadiths abrogate the Quran. We will provide as an example two most shocking laws derived from Hadiths proving that they contradict the Quran (stoning to death the adulterer and Female Genital Mutilation), which corroborates the fact that Hadiths and Sunnah inspired an evil religion that has nothing to do with Islam.

We need to alert the reader that we chose to show a few very graphic and disturbing pictures of people being stoned to death, or executed for apostasy and more. We justify this choice by the fact that Sunni and Shia Islam must be exposed exactly like they really are.

Sunni and Shia scholars claim that one who does not believe in Hadiths and Sunnah is a “kafeer” (infidel). This article will provide a most powerful answer to such people and the reader will judge by him or herself if one who rejects totally the Hadiths and the Sunnah is an infidel or a true believer who stands up to defend true Islam against the worst type of obscurantism. In fact, we will see in this study that following hadiths to the letter leads to nothing more than a profoundly corrupted form of religion and terrorist states such as the so called “Islamic state” also known as “Isis”.

1. Hadiths: About 50 examples of “Sahih hadiths”

1.1 Torture and unjust capital punishments

Muhammad and torture, is it recommended to drink urine?

Sahih al-Bukhari, volume 4, Book 52, Hadith 261

‘Eight men of the tribe of ‘Ukil came to the Prophet and then they found the climate of Medina unsuitable for them. So, they said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! Provide us with some milk.’ Allah’s Apostle said, ‘I recommend that you should join the herd of camels.’ So they went and drank the urine and the milk of the camels till they became healthy and fat. Then they killed the shepherd and drove away the camels, and they became unbelievers after they were Muslims. When the Prophet was informed by a shouter for help, he sent some men in their pursuit, and before the sun rose high, they were brought, and he had their hands and feet cut off. Then he ordered for nails which were heated and passed over their eyes, and they were left in the Harra (i.e. rocky land in Medina). They asked for water, and nobody provided them with water till they died.’

Islam and stoning to death?

Sahih al Bukhari, volume 7, book 63, number 196

Narrated Abu Huraira: A man from Bani Aslam came to Allah apostle while he was in the mosque and called (the prophet) saying: “O Allah’s apostle! I have committed illegal sexual intercourse.” On that the prophet turned his face from him to the other side, whereupon the man moved to the side towards which the prophet had turned his face, and said: “O Allah’s apostle! I have committed illegal sexual intercourse.” The prophet turned his face from him to the other side, whereupon the man moved to the side towards which the prophet had turned his face, and repeated his statement. The prophet turned his face to the other side again. The man moved again [and repeated his statement] for the fourth time. So when the man had given testimony against himself for the fourth time, the prophet called him and said: “Are you insane?” He replied: “No”. The prophet then said to his companions: “Go and stone him to death.” The man was a married one. Jabir bin ‘Abdullah said; “I was one of those who stoned him. We stoned him at the musalla (the place of prayer) in Medina. When the stones hit him with their sharp edges, he fled, but we caught him at Al-Harra, and stoned him till he died”.

This hadith is considered the most authentic.

Sahih Muslim Book 017, Number 4191

‘Ubada b. as-Samit reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: “Receive (teaching) from me, receive (teaching) from me. Allah has ordained a way for those (women). When an unmarried male commits adultery with an unmarried female (they should receive) one hundred lashes and banishment for one year. And in case of a married male committing adultery with a married female, they shall receive one hundred lashes and be stoned to death”.

Just like the previous one, this hadith is considered the most authentic.

Sahih Muslim, Book 017, number 4201:

Ibn Abbas reported that the messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said to Ma’iz b. Malik: “Is what I heard about you true?” He said: “What did you hear about me?” He said: “I was told that you have committed (adultery) with the slave-girl of so and so.” He said: “Yes”. He (the narrator) said: He testified four times. He (the Holy Prophet) then made pronouncement about him and he was stoned (to death).

There are numerous sahih (authentic) hadiths from Bukhari, Muslim and others famous hadiths collectors that make it crystal clear that the punishment for adultery is to be stoned to death. Those hadiths translate into the following result:

In the image above, a group of Sunni Muslims carry out the sentence of stoning the adulterer under the supervision of a Sunni imam, and in compliance with the most “authentic” hadiths. In addition to engaging in a most despicable and gruesome act, some of the vile human beings above actually laugh while throwing stones at the poor woman. But thank God there is a justice in this world and the hereafter, and we will see who will laugh on the Day of Judgment.

In the Holy Quran, the punishment for married males or females and fornicators (the Quran does not make a difference between the two) is 100 (moderate) lashes (24:2). For instance, the Quran provides the example of married women who were former slaves and committed adultery, in which case they receive only “half the punishment” (4:25, 100/2 = 50 lashes). To loathsome human beings who follow hadiths and claim that a married adulterer shall be stoned to death instead of applying the law of Allah (the Quran), I challenge them to divide death by two (See article “fornication, adultery” on this website for extensive details). In the Holy Quran, the only people who ever engage in stoning to death are disbelievers (11:91, 18:20, 19:46, 26:116, 36:18). It is one of their long list of most abominable traits, as engraved in the Holy Quran. In other words, not only stoning to death the adulterer is not a Quranic law and contradicts the Quran, it is the signature mark of disbelievers (kafiroon) in the book of Allah!

The crucial question is: Do you share the same beliefs and behaviors as the disbelievers as described in the Holy Quran? Life is not a game, and if you believe in stoning to death the adulterer and other horrific non Quranic laws, you are in extreme danger of burning in the fire of hell, and here’s the proof:

وَلَا تَشْتَرُوا بِآيَاتِي ثَمَنًا قَلِيلًا وَمَن لَّمْ

يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

(5:44) … and do not barter My verses (the verses of Allah) for a cheap price, and whoever does not judge according to what Allah has revealed (ie the verses of Allah), these are the ones who are disbelievers (al kafiroon)!

وَلْيَحْكُمْ أَهْلُ الْإِنجِيلِ بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ وَمَن

لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ

(5:47) And let the people of the gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein. And whoever does not judge according to what Allah revealedthese are the transgressors!
If you cannot divide death by two (24:2, 4:25), and by Allah, I swear you will never be able to, the two above verses demonstrate that anyone who advocates stoning to death the adulterer or other horrible non Quranic punishments is:

1. A disbeliever (kafeer).

2. A transgressor.

Here is their final destiny:

(3:131) And fear the fire which has been prepared for the disbelievers.

(76:4) Indeed, We have prepared for the disbelievers (al kâfirînchains and shackles and a blazing fire.

Stoning to death the female monkey?

Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 188:

“During the pre-Islamic period of ignorance I (Muhammad) (PBUH) saw a female monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I (Muhammad) too, stoned it along with them.”

Show me one species of monkeys that stone to death the adulterer, then we can talk. The truth is: Even animals do not go as low as stoning to death the adulterer; only disbelievers do. By believing and following hadiths, Sunnis and Shias allow the world to drag the name of Islam and the holy prophet through the mud. Ironically, “Hadiths other than God and His verses” (hadiths other than the Quran) are repeatedly forbidden throughout the Quran (7:185, 12:111, 31:6, 39:23, 45:6, 56:81, 77:50, 17:46).

Shall we kill the apostate?

Hadith al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 260:

Narrated by Ikrima: Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn ‘Abbas, who said, “Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, ‘Don’t punish (anybody) with Allah’s Punishment.’ No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) abandons his religion, kill him.‘”

Yes, you read it right: This hadith alleges that Ali burned alive some people who abandoned Islam, and Ibn Abbas, who has such a good heart, is shocked by the fact that were burned alive. On the other hand, this pure, sensitive and gentle soul concurs that an apostate shall be put to death. This most unjust death sentence is no more than the Sunni version of religious freedom. It is the sentence universally accepted in the Sunni world. If Ali had really (God forbid) burned alive people for changing their religion, or even simply killed them (God forbid), he would have been thrown in the hellfire for having desecrated God’s law in 2:256 where Allah proclaims:

لَا إِكْرَاهَ فِي الدِّينِ

(2:256) “There shall be no compulsion in religion…”.

The above hadith therefore violates the law of Allah (the Holy Quran) in the most blatant manner, as the Quran makes it clear that killing a human being unjustly equates to killing the entire mankind (5:32)! If a Muslim decides to change his or her religion, there is absolutely no punishment to be applied according to the book of Allah, and his or her fate in this life and the hereafter rests with God alone.

No big deal to kill a “kafeer” (infidel)?

Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 9, book 83, number 50

I asked ‘Ali “Do you have any divine literature besides what is in the Qur’an?” Or, as Uyaina once said, “Apart from what the people have?” ‘Ali said, “By Him Who made the grain split (germinate) and created the soul, we have nothing except what is in the Quran and the ability (gift) of understanding the Book of Allah, which He may bless a man with, and what is written on this sheet of paper.” I asked, “What is on this piece of paper?” He replied, “The legal regulations of Diya (Blood-money) and the (ransom for) releasing the captives, and the judgment that no Muslim should be killed in Qisas (equality in punishment) for killing a Kafir (disbeliever).”

Quranic law is based on the law of retaliation or law of equivalence (called “Qisas”, 2:178). This hadith violates the law of equivalence which implies that anyone who murders a human being is eligible for the death penalty, regardless of his or her religion. This said, the Quran does discourage capital punishment in general and opens the door to compensate the family if the brother of the deceased agrees not to go forward with the death penalty (2:178).

Numerous hadiths profess amputating the hand of the thief, which violates Quranic law:

Sahih Muslim, Book 40, Hadith 61

‘Abd al-Rahman b. Muhariz said:

We asked Fadalah b. ‘Ubaid about the hanging of the [amputated] hand on the neck of a thief as to whether it was a sunnan. He said: “A thief was brought to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and his hand was cut off. He passed an order after that, and it (i.e. the amputated hand) was hung on his neck”.

As we can see, some of the malevolent laws found in hadiths rival the worst horror movies.

Sahih Muslim, Book 86, Hadith 25

Narrated Ibn `Umar: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) cut off the hand of a thief for stealing a shield that was worth three Dirhams.

Sahih Muslim Book 86, Hadith 29

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah ‘s Apostle said, “Allah curses the thief who steals an egg (or a helmet) for which his hand is to be cut offor steals a ropefor which his hand is to be cut off.”

Sunan an-Nasa’i, book 46, sahih hadith 29

A woman had stolen some jewelry (beginning of hadith omitted for sake of brevity). The prophet said: “The people who came before you were eradicated because every time a noble among them stole, they let him get away [with impunity]. But when a person of a lower social status stole, they enforced the punishment [ie. to cut off the hand]. By The One who possesses (lit. “whose hand holds”) the soul of Mohammed, if Fatimah bint Muhammad (the prophet’s daughter) stole, I would cut off her hand! He then amputated [the hand of] that woman.”

Once again, hadiths blatantly violate Quranic law in the most horrendous manner: In the Qur’an, verse 5:38 describes the sentence of thieves as symbolically “cutting their hands (meaning “cutting what people possess” in the Quran) as an equivalent retribution of what they have acquired”. The verb “to cut” (qouti’a) is in the form 1 in this verse, which in the Qur’an means “to cut” in a figurative, non-literal sense. The meaning of the word “hand” is also figurative in the Quran in most cases (just like “the hand of God” in the last hadith quoted by the way) and often associated with “possessing” something.

The immediate context of Sura 5 emphasizes the crucial alternation between the verb “qouti’a” (5:38, form 1) and the verb “Qata’a” (5:33, form 2): Furthermore, the verb Qata’a (form 2) in 5:33, like in 5:38, is also judiciously associated with the word “hand” where we see that people who fight God and His messenger and spread corruption on earth (basically mass murderers) either incur the death penalty or have a hand and foot cut on alternate sides so they cannot pose a threat to society in the same way afterwards. The association of the verb “Qata’a” (to cut, 5:33, form 2) and the word “hands” in the Quran systematically means “to cut” in a literal and physical sense. By contrast, in 5:38 which deals with the sentence of the thief, it is the verb “qouti’a” (form 1) which is associated with the word “their hands”, and it is the only time that the two words are used conjointly in the Quran.

Given the grammatical laws of the Arabic language and taking into account the significant alternation of the two verbs in the form 1 and form 2 in a close context (5:33 and 5:38), it is strictly impossible for the verb “qouti ‘a” (form 1) in 5:38 to have the same meaning as the verb “Qata’a” (form 2) in 5:33. It must therefore be taken in a figurative sense, which concurs with its predominantly figurative use throughout the Quran.

وَالسَّارِقُ وَالسَّارِقَةُ فَاقْطَعُوا أَيْدِيَهُمَا جَزَاءً

بِمَا كَسَبَا نَكَالًا مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

(5:38) And as for the male thief and the female thief, cut their belongings as an equivalent retribution to what they have acquired: This is an exemplary punishment from God; God is Powerful, Most Wise.

The meaning of the verse shall be “to cut figuratively” (form 1 = figurative use in the Quran) [the fruit of] their hands (meaning: “what they possess” or “their capacity to work”) as an equivalent retribution of what they have acquired” (5:38).

In other words, a fine is applied to what the thief owns that is equivalent to what he stole. Of course, and by definition, the stolen property or its equivalent must also be returned to its rightful owner. If he or she can’t afford the fine, he or she will be forced to work until the fine is met. This just sentence is purely based on the law of retaliation that governs all Quranic law and concurs very exactly with the sentence in the Bible (Exodus 22:2, 22:6, 22:8) where the thief must return the stolen property, doubled with an equivalent fine or, failing that, pay twice as much.

The thief’s hand shall NEVER be amputated according to Quranic law, and only godless people under the spell of “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6) ever engage in such atrocities.

1.2 Why are women widely mistreated in the Muslim world

Do hadiths have anything to do with the fact that women are often mistreated in Sunni and Shia Islam? Let’s take a close look at some true pearls of wisdom found in hadith literature:

Most women go to the hellfire, they are deficient in intelligence

Sahih al-Bukhari. Book of Menstrual Periods, number 6

Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri: Once, the messenger of Allah (PBUH) went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) of `Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by a women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women).” They asked, “Why is it so, O messenger of Allah (PBUH) ?” He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you (women). A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you.” The women asked, “O messenger of Allah (PBUH)! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?” He said, “Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?” They replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn’t it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?” The women replied in the affirmative. He said, “This is the deficiency in her religion.”

This hadith is a despicable lie: The Quran never states that being a woman makes you more likely to go to the hellfire, and it is laughable to even claim that they are deficient in intelligence. According to the Quran, women, just like men, must always perform the salât, even during their menses (see article “salât in the Quran” for Quranic proofs). People can avoid fasting during the month of Ramadan if they are sick or on a journey (2:184), but there is no prohibition for a woman not to fast during her menses. If she doesn’t feel well enough, she can fast at a later date (2:184), that’s all. See the article on the “Fast of Ramadan” for more details.

Is female genital mutilation (“woman circumcision”) recommended in Islam?

Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75; Abu Dawud, Adab 167:

Abu al- Malih ibn `Usama’s father relates that the Prophet said: “Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women.”

Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 41, Number 5251:

“A woman used to perform circumcision in Madinah. The Prophet (PBUH) said to her: ‘When you circumcise, do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.’”

Sahih Muslim, Book 003, hadith 0684

“When two circumcised parts unite, then bathing becomes obligatory.”

Just to give one example, In Egypt, one of the largest Muslim countries in the world, about 90% of women are victims of female genital mutilation as a result of Sunnis enforcing the satanic hadiths above mentioned.

Circumcision is not mentioned in the Quran, neither for the man nor for the woman. It is therefore not part of Islam. The Quran says that “We created the human being in the best of moulds”, (95:4). Why would we need to alter the mould that God designed and make the human being less than perfect by following horrific pagan practices?

In addition, God informs us that modifying God’s creation is the signature mark of satan:

(4:119) “I (satan) will mislead them, I will entice them, I will command them to (forbid the eating of certain meats by) marking the ears of livestock, and I will command them to distort the creation of GOD.” Anyone who accepts the devil as a lord, instead of GOD, has incurred a profound loss.

Female genital mutilation, stoning to death the adulterer, killing the apostate, cutting the hand of the thief are among the satanic laws that explain why God has cursed Sunnis and Shias for so many centuries as a result of their following “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6) and applying laws other than God’s law (5:44, 5:47): The world of Islam has been experiencing frequent wars, terrorism, dictatorship, colonization, loss of Palestine and Palestinians being persecuted and living under a regime of apartheid, corruption, famine, poverty, etc….

God’s curse will not stop as long as they refuse to purify themselves and follow the Quran alone.

A woman is crooked like a rib:

Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, book 62, hadith 113

Narrated Abu Huraira: “The messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “The woman is like a rib; if you try to straighten her, she will break. So if you want to benefit from her, do so while she has some crookedness.

Is it women who are crooked or “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6)?

It is very bad to cut women’s fingers, what shall be the punishment?:

Hanbal, 2/182; Muwatta, 43/11:

The punishment for cutting the fingers of a woman is to pay her: 10 camels for one finger; 20 camels for two fingers; 30 camels for three fingers, and 20 (twenty) camels for four fingers.

One gets a discount after cutting the fourth finger: The penalty goes down from 30 camels for three fingers to twenty camels for four fingers! Sunni Islam is all about compassion for the sinner, and it is just fair to allow discounts for large quantities. Bottom line: If you already have cut off three fingers to a woman, just cut off another one and you will save 10 camels! This is just another disgusting, typical hadith nonsense; all we can say is that it is no surprise that women are treated like garbage in Sunni Islam.

Are Women, horses and homes bad omen?

Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 30:

“Bad omen is in the woman, the horse and the home.”  

Is the bad omen really upon women, horses and homes, or upon those who believe and follow “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6)? We are touching here the real reason why the Muslim world has been in turmoil in every way for so many centuries, when it would have thrived and experienced peace had it followed the Quran alone. On the Day of Judgment, the prophet Muhammad will declare: “My people have abandoned the Quran” (25:30). They abandoned the Word of God by allowing themselves to be under the spell of “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6).

Is the ritual prayer (salât) nullified by women, asses, monkeys and black dogs? Is a black dog a devil?

According to hadiths, black dogs are devils that nullify your prayer if they pass in front of you

Sahih Muslim, Book 4, Hadith 299

Abu Dharr reported: The Messenger of ‘Allah (may peace be upon him) said: “When any one of you stands for prayer and there is a thing before him equal to the back of the saddle that covers him and in case there is not before him (a thing) equal to the back of the saddle, his prayer would be cut off by (passing of an) ass, woman, and black Dog”. I said: O Abu Dharr, what feature is there in a black dog which distinguish it from the red dog and the yellow dog? He said: O, son of my brother, I asked the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) as you are asking me, and he said: “The black dog is a devil”.

In Europe people have that stupid superstition about black cats, in Sunni Islam it’s about black dogs. Superstitions have no business in true Islam.

Sahih al-Bukhari 8/102; Hanbal 4/86

“If a monkey, a black dog or a woman passes in front of a praying person, his prayer is nullified.”

Apparently pigs don’t nullify the prayer, too bad women do… One thing that would most definitely nullify the prayer is reciting hadiths during the prayer, because they are impure and not inspired nor revealed by God, and certainly not an ass, a monkey, a black dog or a woman passing in front of someone performing the salât.  

Sahih al-Bukhari volume 7, book 62, hadith 132:

“Narrated Zam’a, “The prophet said, “None of you should flog his wife as he flogs a female slave and then have sexual intercourse with her in the last part of the day.”

Basically, this hadith tells us that you can flog your wife, but not as hard as you would flog a female slave, and if you do so, please be a good husband and give her a little break by not having a sexual intercourse with her for the rest of the day so she can recover from the beating.

Should this hadith be classified as “sahih” (authentic) or as “purely despicable”? You be the judge.

Abu Dawud Book 11, hadith 2142: Umar reported the prophet as saying: “A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife”.

We are instructed here that if someone beats his wife, do not interfere. Mind your own business! This kind of despicable hadiths is a big part of why domestic violence is an endemic problem in the Sunni world.

 Abu Dawud 2142 : Book 12, Hadith 97

Mu’awiyah asked: Messenger of Allah, what is the right of the wife of one of us over him? He replied: “That you should give her food when you eat, clothe her when you clothe yourself, do not strike her on the face, do not revile her or separate yourself from her except in the house”.

Can you believe it?: One of the “wife’s rights” is not to be stricken in the face! We have here another confirmation that a husband is permitted to beat his wife. But, pleeaaase, be a good husband and respect her rights: Do not strike her in the face!

We could quote more of such despicable hadiths about wife beating, but I am going to stop here, otherwise I am going to vomit.

Such horrific hadiths have had a catastrophic influence regarding the way verse 4:24 of the Quran has been interpreted, and this for over a thousand years, as Sunni and Shia clerics interpret the verb “daraba” (ضَرَبَ = form 1) in 4:24 as meaning “to beat” or “to scourge”. Below, a typical translation of 4:24:

Pickthall translation:

(4:34) Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.

The verb “daraba” has about 30 (thirty) different meanings in Arabic. Once you take into account the context of the sura and the rest of the Quran, the real meaning of the verb “daraba” in 4:34 is “to shun” or “ignore” not “to beat”. Verse 4:34 tells us that we have to “protect” or “guard the women” (see translation below), “live with them in kindness” (4:19); God favors reconciliation between spouses if there is a risk of separation (4:128), and God says that he has “placed love and mercy between spouses” (30:21). All these meanings go against the malevolent hadith inspired notion of “beating” your wife. I know very well what I am talking about because I studied in great depth this particular issue and wrote a very detailed article entitled “4:34: Beat your wife?”(available on this website). I invite the sincere who wants to contribute to eradicating domestic violence in the world to seriously study it.

The real meaning of 4:34 is the following:

(4:34) Men shall protect women, because of what God has bestowed on the former in comparison to the latter, as well as with what they spend of their wealth. Therefore, righteous women are devoutly obedient [to God’s commands] when it comes to guard the intimate and private aspects [of a marriage] which God has meant to be guarded. As for those [women] from whom you fear disloyal behavior, then warn them and avoid them in bed and shun them (or “ignore them”); and if they obey you, seek no [further retaliatory] measures (lit. “way”) against them. Indeed, God is Ever Exalted, Most Great.

In other words, the message of the Holy Quran is about resorting to wisdom instead of violence by “ignoring” your wife if she is disloyal. Domestic violence has no justification whatsoever in pure Islam, while “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6) clearly permit it, including flogging.

To conclude this section, It is overwhelmingly clear that a large number of hadiths regarding women are absolutely despicable and grossly contradict the Quran. They are directly responsible for the appalling way women have been mistreated for over a thousand years in Sunni and Shia Islam. The Holy Quran is a message of faith, good deeds and purity, and has nothing to do with the malevolent message advocated by hadiths.

1.3 Hadiths contradict the Quran, and contradict themselves

Is it possible to tamper with the Quran according to the hadiths?

What does traditional Islam have to say concerning the many hadiths which claim that an entire verse is not only missing from the Quran, but lost forever?

Ibn Maajah, 36/1944; Hanbal, 3/61; 5/131, 132, 183; 6/269:

“The parchment on which the verse about stoning to death for adultery was written, was eaten and abrogated by a goat.”

This despicable lie shamefully contradicts the Holy Quran where God decreed that He protected the Quran from any alteration (15:9). Furthermore, God proclaims that “nothing can abrogate His words” (لَا مُبَدِّلَ لِكَلِمَاتِهِ, 6:115, 18:27). The problem is that Sunnis believe that a goat and even other hadiths can.

Was Muhammad bewitched by a Jew?

Sahih al-Bukhari, 59/11; 76/47; Hanbal 6/57; 4/367:

The Prophet had been bewitched by a Jew, and for several days he did not know what he was doing.

First of all, the fact that this hadith mentions that it is a Jew who cast a spell on Muhammad is meant to depict Jews as evil. Hatred against Jews and Christians is a commonplace in hadith literature. In addition, it contradicts the Holy Quran which states unequivocally that Muhammad was never a madman (7:184, 23:70, 34:46, 52:29, 68:2).

Hadiths are crippled with ridiculous examples and numerous contradictions. Example:

Should we urinate sitting or standing?:

– The Prophet never urinated in a standing position. (Masnad Hanbal, 6/136, 192, 213)

– The Prophet urinated in a standing position. (Sahih Al-Bukhari, 4/60, 62)

How old was the prophet when he died?

– “The messenger of Allah died when he was sixty-three years of age” (sahih al-Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 742). 

– “Allah took him (the prophet, PBUH) away when he had just reached the age of sixty” (Muslim Book 030, Number 5794).

– The prophet died at the age of sixty five (Muslim Book 030, Number 5805). 

Is Muhammad “the most honorable messenger”?

– “I am the most honorable messenger” (Sahih al-Bukhari 97/36).

– “Do not make any distinction among the messengers; I am not even better than Jonah” (Sahih  al-Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, hadith 608; Hanbal 1/205,242,440).

The Quran proclaims that it is forbidden to make any distinction among the messengers (2:136, 2:285, 3:84 and 4:152).

When do we perform “the middle prayer” according to hadiths:

Verse 2:238 of the Quran points at the practice of “the middle prayer” (al salât al wustâ). To which prayer does it refer to according to hadiths?

Sahih Muslim, Book 4, hadith 1316:

Abu Yunus, the freed slave of ‘A’isha said: ‘A’isha ordered me to transcribe a copy of the Qur’an for her and said: When you reach this verse: “Guard the prayers and the middle prayer” (2:238), inform me; so when I reached it, I informed her and she gave me dictation (in the following manner): “Guard the prayers and the middle prayer and the afternoon prayer (‘asr prayer = middle of the afternoon prayer in Sunni and Shia Islam), and stand up truly obedient to Allah”. ‘A’isha said: This is how I have heard from the Messenger of Allah (PBUH).

In this hadith, “the middle prayer” is clearly the noon prayer.

Saheeh Muslim, Book 4, Number 1317:

Al-Bara’ ibn ‘Azib reported: This verse was revealed (in this way): “Guard the prayers and the ‘Asr prayer.” We recited it (in this very way) so long as Allah desired. Allah, then, abrogated it and it was revealed: “Guard the prayers, and the middle prayer.” A person who was sitting with Shaqiq (one of the narrators in the chain of transmitters) said: “So now it implies the ‘Asr prayer?”. Upon this al-Bara’ said: I have already informed you how this (verse) was revealed and how Allah abrogated it, and Allah knows best.

In this hadith, “the middle prayer” is the ‘asr (middle of the afternoon) prayer.

Al Muwatta by imam Malik, Book 8, hadith 29:

Yahya related to me from Malik that he had heard that Ali Ibn Abi Talib and Abdallah ibn Abbas used to say, “the middle prayer is the prayer of subh.”

In this hadith, “the middle prayer” is the morning prayer.

In other words, according to hadiths, the middle prayer is either the noon prayer, middle of the afternoon prayer, or morning prayer (!!!). Weren’t hadiths supposed to clarify or explain the Quran, as Sunnis claim, or confuse people and create dissensions? According to the Holy Quran, the “middle prayer” is the “noon” prayer. See the article “salât in the Quran” and “miracle of 2:238” for all details and proofs.

The Quran proclaims:

(4:82) Why do they not reflect upon the Quran? If it were from other than GOD, they would have found in it many contradictions.

What we have seen in this section is just a sample of contradictions found between hadiths. There are a great number of them, and the life of a human being would most likely not be enough to detect all of them.

1.4 Scientific miracles in hadiths and other absurd hadiths:

There are many profound scientific miracles in hadiths. Examples:

Ibn Katheer 2/29; 50/1:

The earth is carried on a giant bull; when it shakes its head, then an earthquake occurs.

Sahih Muslim, Book 6, Hadith 353

Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) as saying: Do not intend to observe prayer at the time of the rising of the sun nor at its setting, for it rises between the horns of Satan.

It looks like satan tries to hide behind the horizon when the sun rises, but guess what? We can still see his horns!

Hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6) are based on conjecture and superstition, not facts. If you start performing the dawn prayer seconds before the sun starts rising, it is valid. Otherwise, you missed the dawn prayer (it is a great sin to miss any prayer in Islam), and you cannot do it later (see “salât in the Quran”). As for the horns of satan, this hadith speaks for itself.

Sahih al-Bukhari, Book 19, Hadith 25

Narrated ‘Abdullah : A person was mentioned before the Prophet (PBUH) and he was told that he had kept on sleeping till morning and had not got up for the prayer. The Prophet said, “Satan urinated in his ears.”

For the record, satan is a jinn (18:50) and they are not even part of this realm (7:27), therefore satan does not urinate and this hadith is not only ridiculous, it is a lie.

Geocentrism: The sun sets under God’s throne after sunset:

Hadith al-Bukhari, Book 59, Hadith 10

The Prophet (PBUH) asked me at sunset, “Do you know where the sun goes (at the time of sunset)?” I replied, “Allah and His Apostle know best.” He said, “It goes (i.e. travels) till it prostrates itself underneath the Throne and takes the permission to rise again, and it is permitted and then (a time will come when) it will be about to prostrate itself but its prostration will not be accepted, and it will ask permission to go on its course but it will not be permitted, but it will be ordered to return whence it has come and so it will rise in the west. And that is the interpretation of the Statement of Allah: “And the sun runs its fixed course for a term (decreed). That is the decree of (Allah), The Exalted in Might, The All- Knowing.” (36.38)

This hadith claims that the sun goes down where the throne of God is located! This would imply that the throne of God is always located towards the west wherever you are on earth. This is just another false hadith which provides a geocentric view of the earth instead of our planet being a sphere that rotates around the sun.

Sahih al-Bukhari, Book 76, Hadith 91

I heard Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) saying, “Whoever takes seven ‘Ajwa dates in the morning will not be affected by magic or poison on that day.”

Eat seven ajwa dates in the morning, then ingest some cyanide or other lethal poison later, I guarantee you 100% that you will end up six feet under. You have to be an idiot to believe this hadith, and the same goes for all other hadiths, which are condemned and prohibited in the Quran BY NAME (7:185, 12:111, 31:6, 39:23, 45:6, 77:50).

Sahih al-Bukhari, Book 9, Hadith 15

Narrated Abu Sa`id: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said, “Pray Zuhr (midday) prayer when it becomes (a bit) cooler as the severity of heat is from the raging of the Hell-fire.”

According to the Quran, the dhur (midday prayer) starts shortly after the call to prayer when the sun reaches its highest point according to the Quran. For example we must attend the Friday noon prayer as soon as it is called for (62:9). When it is time to submit to God and glorify Him, you don’t “wait until it becomes cooler”, you obey God and you do it right away. Therefore this hadith is an outright lie. As for the claim that “the severity of heat is from the raging of the Hell-fire” at noon, there is no need to explain: It is absurd.

Hadiths provide us invaluable scientific insight:

Sahih Muslim, Book 36, Hadith 246

Ibn ‘Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) as saying that a non-Muslim eats in seven intestines whereas a Muslim eats in one intestine.

This is the kind of hadith from which the world must listen and learn: Who could possibly know at the time this hadith was written down that non Muslims have 7 (seven) intestines, while Muslims only have one?! Men of science need to leave their current state of ignorance and we must urgently update books of anatomy all around the world.

I am sure you are getting my point, and this is another blatant example where hadiths followers should be ashamed of themselves.

Sahih Muslim, Book 2, Hadith 31

The Apostle of Allah (PBUH) said. When any one of you awakes up from sleep and performs ablution, he must clean his nose three times, for the devil spends the night in the interior of his nose.

Finally I understand why Sunnis wash their nose three times during the ablutions!

The ablutions decreed by God in the Quran are not based on ridiculous superstition and are the following:

(5:6) O you who believe, once you stand up to observe the ritual prayer then: (1) wash your faces, (2) wash your hands and up to the elbows, (3) rub your heads and (4) your feet up to your ankles.

Do you see in the Quran fully detailed (6:114, 7:52, 10:37) that we have to wash our nose three times? Of course not. Therefore the above hadith is a lie.

Black cumin cures absolutely everything except death:

Sahih al-Bukhari, Book 76, Hadith 10

We went out and Ghalib bin Abjar was accompanying us. He fell ill on the way and when we arrived at Medina he was still sick. Ibn Abi ‘Atiq came to visit him and said to us, “Treat him with black cumin. Take five or seven seeds and crush them (mix the powder with oil) and drop the resulting mixture into both nostrils, for `Aisha has narrated to me that she heard the Prophet (PBUH) saying, ‘This black cumin is healing for all diseases except As-Sam.’ Aisha said, ‘What is As-Sam?’ He said, ‘Death.”

Black cumin, like so many plants, does have some medicinal properties; but it is an outright lie to claim that it is a cure for all diseases. Millions of people around the world would die if they relied on this hadith every time they are seriously ill.

Sahih Muslim, Book 039, Number 6725:

This hadith has been transmitted on the authority of Abdullah b. Mas’ud (who said): We were along with the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) in Mina, when the moon was split up into two. One of its parts was behind the mountain and the other one was on this side of the mountain. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said to us: “Bear witness to this”.

Hold on a minute! Did you say that one part of the moon was “behind the mountain and the other part on the other side of the mountain”?! Either I missed something and this “miracle” is just too good, or this is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever heard in my life. This hadith simply shows that “Imam” Muslim, regarded as a saint in Sunni Islam, did not have a clue as to what the moon really is and how far it is. A large number of hadiths grossly contradict science in many ways and provide us incontrovertible proof that attempting to gather reliable hadiths 200 years after the death of the holy prophet was not only totally impossible and unreliable, but utterly absurd: With the exception of imam Malik who compiled the first hadiths a century after the death of the prophet, the most important hadith compilations were written down two centuries after the death of the prophet (al-Bukhari, Muslim) and no decent court of law in the world would ever accept the testimony of a person based on oral traditions written down a century or two after his death. The real miracle of the splitting of the moon (54:1) is described in the article “splitting of the moon” on this website (it is both a physical and allegorical miracle) and has absolutely nothing to do with the moon being actually split in two halves as hadith literature claims.

1.5 Hadiths: Racism and disrespect towards Jews and Christians

Hadiths and racism, Muhammad expressing racist views regarding people of color?:

Sahih al-Bukhari Vol 9, Book 89, Number 256:

Narated By Anas bin Malik : Allah’s Apostle said, “You should listen to and obey your ruler even if he is an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin.”

Sahih Muslim. book 10, hadith 3901

Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: There came a slave and he pledged allegiance to Allah’s apostle (PBUH) during the migration; he (the prophet) did not know he was a slave. Then came his master who demanded him back, whereupon Allah’s apostle (PBUH) said: “Sell him to me.” And he bought him in exchange for two black slavesand he did not take allegiance from anyone (afterwards) until he had asked him whether he was a slave (or free man).

This hadith is racist and is a lie: The prophet’s mission was to guide the human race to Islam and he had to accept the allegiance of every human being, regardless of social status. He would have miserably failed his mission had he not accepted the allegiance of slaves.

A number of hadiths encourage disrespecting Jews and Christians. Example:

Sahih Muslim 2167:

Do not initiate to the Jews and the Christians [the greeting of] salaam; and when you meet any one of them on the roads force him to go to the narrowest part of it.

This despicable hadith grossly contradicts the Quran which advocates greeting people (regardless of their religion) with a better greeting than you are greeted with (4:86). We are encouraged to say “peace” even to unbelievers (43:89) and Abraham said to his father “peace be upon you” despite the fact that he was an idol worshiper (19:47). In addition, the Quran encourages us to “invite to the path of our Lord with wisdom and kind enlightenment and debate with Jews and Christians in the best possible manner” (16:124-125). The above hadith exemplifies immorality. It is light years away from the purity of the Quran and is very typical of the disrespect and hatred towards Jews and Christians so deeply entrenched in hadiths.

Hadiths: A call to exterminate Jews:

Sahih Muslim book 41, hadith 6981:

Ibn ‘Umar reported the messenger of Allah as saying: “You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: “Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me); kill him!

Sahih Muslim, book 54, hadith 2922:

Abu Huraira reported that the messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “The last hour will not come until the Muslims will fight against the Jews; the Muslims will kill them until the Jews will hide themselves behind a stone or a tree, and the tree will say: “Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him!”; but the Gharqad tree (Boxthorn tree, a thorny type of bush) will not say anything, because it is the tree of the Jews.

Sunnis frequently quote these so called “authentic hadiths” as a call to exterminate Jews. Do we really need to lower ourselves to the point of having to say that stones and trees do not speak?! Unfortunately, Sunnis and Shias are often filled with so much hatred that they can’t even see the obvious: No, trees and stones do not speak; however, the above hadiths do speak for themselves for being so absurd, most despicable and profoundly racist. No wonder there is so much religious bias, hatred and racism in Sunni and Shia Islam.

1.6 Too ridiculous to be true, but true

satan passes gas with noise (farts) during the adhan

Sahih al-Bukhari, book 4, hadith 22:

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s apostle said: “When the adhan is pronounced, satan takes to his heel (flees) and passes gas with noise during his flight in order not to hear the adhan. When the adhan is completed, he comes back and again takes to his heel when the iqama is pronounced (the iqama is the second adhan according to Sunni Islam) and after its completion he returns again till he whispers into the heart of the person (to divert his attention from his prayer) and makes him remember things which he does not recall to his mind before the prayer and that causes him to forget how much he has prayed.”

When Sunnis hear the words “Sahih al-Bukhari”, “Sahih Muslim” or else, they are programmed to believe that it is the inspired truth and word from the holy prophet, when it is nothing but lies. As a Muslim, how not to be ashamed that the so called “Muslim world” has embraced the hadith nonsense. We shall be proud to be Muslims, not ashamed, and the only way to fix this is to submit to God and discard all “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6) and purify ourselves by following the Quran alone.

All these hadiths are considered Sahih (authentic) and pass the test invented by Sunni scholars who invented the criteria to accept or reject them. There are hundreds and hundreds of such hadiths which blatantly contradict the Holy Quran, violate its laws, and dishonor Islam.

2. When Sunni religious authorities cite seemingly beautiful hadiths to try to get away with murder

As we just saw, and among other horrors, hadiths advocate stoning to death the adulterer and putting to death the so called “apostate”, which includes killing someone who doesn’t pray: Believing or enforcing such satanic hadiths is being either complicit or guilty of the worst type of murder, and we already witnessed that they grossly contradict the QuranIt is basically equivalent to selling your soul to the devil:

(5:44) … and do not barter My verses (the verses of Allah) for a cheap price, and whoever does not judge according to what Allah has revealed (ie the verses of Allah), these are the ones who are disbelievers (al kafiroun)!

(5:47) And let the people of the gospel judge by what Allah has revealed therein. And whoever does not judge according to what Allah revealedthese are the transgressors!

So my question is “how do Sunni and Shia clerics and their throngs of followers who believe in such pagan laws manage to seemingly “get away with murder”? How do they manage to look at themselves in the mirror, and how do they still find a way to convince people to follow “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:5) despite the overwhelming Quranic evidence against them?

2.1. Even the “golden rule” hadiths are factually untrue

Most of the time, and except for Sunni extremists who openly embrace the most horrible hadiths, Sunni clerics avoid talking about the type of hadiths quoted in section 1, some of which are directly responsible for the death and misery of countless human beings throughout history. They much prefer to bury their heads in the sand and focus on the seemingly good ones. satan is devilishly smart: He knows full well that if you want people to swallow poison, you have to mix it with a lot of honey, otherwise people would never swallow it. If you want people to accept the most horrendous and ridiculous hadiths and turn the blind eye regarding all their contradictions, the best way is to mix some truth or seemingly beautiful hadiths along with those lies; otherwise, no one would ever take the bait.

We chose to provide below the example of the “golden rule hadiths” which are the very type of hadiths that imams use to try to persuade themselves and their followers that following “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6) is the one true path of Islam:

The following hadiths are closely related to the words of Jesus (quoted later in this section) known as “the golden rule”, hence their name:

Sahih al-Bukhari, Book 2, Hadith 6

Narrated Anas: The Prophet (PBUH) said, “None of you will have faith till he wishes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself.”

Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith 77

It is narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that the Prophet (PBUH) observed: “None amongst you believes (truly) until he loves for his brother” – or he said “for his neighbor” – “that which he loves for himself.”

Sunan an-Nasa’i 5039, Book 47, Hadith 55

It was narrated from Anas bin Malik that: The Prophet (PBUH) said: “None of you has believed until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”

Golden rule hadiths: Too beautiful not to be true, but patently false

When people see such “beautiful sahih hadiths” they often feel tears in their eyes or even start crying and tell themselves: “How could hadiths as a whole be false (including horrific laws that contradict the Quran) when you read hadiths that are so beautiful and profound?”. The “golden rule hadiths” are the kind of hadiths that a lot of imams typically quote and use as bait when they deliver sermons on Friday in order to give themselves good conscience and easily mislead people.

So, you took the bait regarding the “golden rule hadiths”? The imam will tell you: “Congratulations! It means that you believe in hadiths and that you are a good Muslim”. He will then tell you that “if you are a true Muslim, you must also believe in sahih (authentic) hadiths in general.” And this is how they manage to lure people to swallow the poison regarding all the horrible hadiths quoted in part 1 (kill the adulterer, kill the apostate, cut the hand of the thief, beat your wife, etc…).

This is why it is my duty to warn you about the miserable fate reserved in the hereafter for those who do “not judge according to what Allah has revealed”, and who are called “kâfiroon” by Allah:

(5:44) … and do not barter My verses (the verses of Allah) for a cheap price, and whoever does not judge according to what Allah has revealed (ie the verses of Allah), these are the ones who are disbelievers (al kafiroun)!

We know the fate of « disbelievers » in the hereafter:

(76:4) Indeed, We have prepared for the disbelievers (al kâfirîn) chains and shackles and a blazing fire.

It is so beautiful and touching to succumb to emotion and cry reading the golden hadiths, basically taking the bait of hadiths; the problem is that you are then in a great danger of crying a lot longer, and much louder, in the hereafter.

But, do you even know that the “golden rule hadiths”, even though they look to good not to be true, are, just like all the others, patently false? The reason is that they contradict the Quran, and here’s why:

The essence of Islam is to “believe and do good deeds” (2:25, 2:82, 2:277, 3:57, 4:57, 4:122, …, 103:3) which guarantees people to go to paradise (22:14, 22:23):

(2:277) Indeed, those who (1) believe and (2) do good deeds, and perform the salât and fulfill the obligation of zakât, their reward belongs with their Lord; No fear shall weigh upon them, nor shall they grieve.

The above verse is one of many that show that faith in God by itself is not enough, and that you MUST do good deeds along with believing in God to go to paradise. It is why God made it mandatory to perform the salât (a symbol and act of faith) and fulfill the obligation of zakât (a symbol and act of charity). Therefore, the Quran tells you that indeed you can believe in God, but if you do not do good deeds at the same time, it will prevent you from going to paradise. Therefore when hadiths tell you that “None of you will have faith till he wishes for his brother (or neighbor) what he likes for himself” or the like, it may sound beautiful and even may make some people cry, but it is factually untrue as it contradicts the Holy Quran. Furthermore the Quran does not want you to simply “wish for your brother what you like for yourself” as this al-Bukhari hadith puts it, but to actually and physically make the difference by giving in charity and helping people. “Wishing” is absolutely and definitely not enough.

The Quran again says:

(3:92) You will never attain righteousness until you spend from that which you love, and whatever you may spend from, in truth, God is fully aware of it.

The Quran is miraculously precise and does not tell you that “you cannot believe until you spend from that which you love” (which would closely match the “Golden rule” hadiths) but that “You will never attain righteousness until you spend from that which you love”. The above verse is the pure truth, unlike the so called “golden rule hadiths” quoted earlier which look beautiful at first sight, but are tainted with falsehood and factually untrue.

And let’s not forget another verse that is infinitely more profound than the so called “golden rule hadiths”:

(19:96) Indeed, those who believe and do good deeds, God will shower them with love.

As mentioned earlier and, even though untrue because poorly formulated, the “golden rule hadiths” are very much inspired from the Bible, Old and New Testament, especially the following words of Jesus, known as “the Golden rule”:

Matthew 7:12

In all things, whatever you wish that others may do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the prophets.”

Mark 12:28-31:

28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] There is no commandment greater than these.”

Jesus himself quoted the second above commandment from Leviticus 19:18

“‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

See also Leviticus 19:34.

The words of Jesus and Leviticus are much deeper and truthful than the hadiths which claim that, “None of you will have faith till he wishes for his brother or neighbor what he likes for himself.”

Allah wants results (2:277, 3:92), not “wishes”.

2. Typical lies that Sunnis spread to claim we need hadiths

Here are two typical kinds of lies you will hear in the Sunni world to attempt to validate hadiths. I personally heard the following arguments in several mosques and online:

1. “If we don’t need hadiths, as they (Muslims who follow the Quran alone) claim, how do you perform the salât just following the Quran alone?”

Most of the time, people are not ready for this question because they never studied the Quran in depth regarding this particular subject, so they nod their heads to the imam in agreement: “O my God, he is so right!”. In fact, this is 100% false as all details of the salât are indeed consigned in the fully detailed Quran (as proven in the article on this website entitled “salât in the Quran”) including the number of prayers, rakaʿât, tashahhud, the detail of ablutions, the tone of voice during the prayer, and much much more.

(3:31) Say!: “If you do love God, then follow me. God will then love you and forgive your sins. God is Forgiver, Merciful.”?

2. Sunni and Shia imams will also typically tell you: “The Quran commands that if you love God, you must follow the messenger”, now that Muhammad is dead, how can you “follow the messenger” if you do not follow the hadiths and Sunna that were so carefully preserved after him and complete all the details of our religion?” Again, the people in the mosque nod their heads in agreement, completely unaware that they are totally manipulated: “Yes, he is so right!”.

We will deal with this particular point and others later in detail, but I will clear that lie in one sentence right now by saying that 332 times, God commanded to the holy prophet to say specific sentences to people around him by ordering him: “Qul!” (Say!), followed by specific words that he had to deliver around him, and destined afterwards to be read and heard by the human race until the Day of Judgment. This is one example of 332 most profound authentic hadiths found directly in the Quran. Therefore, and even though the prophet passed away well over 1400 years ago, we still “follow the messenger” or “obey God and the messenger” every single day of our lives by following the Quran alone which includes the very words which God ordered him to proclaim to the entire mankind and until the Day of Judgment.

Hadiths regularly disfigure and taint Islam with falsehood, at best they will simply concur with the Quran fully detailed and will add strictly nothing to God’s last revelation. In most cases they will divert people who believe in them from pure Islam. In virtually 100% of cases they are false and prohibited by the Holy Quran as evidenced in the next section.

3. The Quran: The only hadith we should follow and believe in

أَوَلَمْ يَنظُرُوا فِي مَلَكُوتِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ

وَمَا خَلَقَ اللَّهُ مِن شَيْءٍ وَأَنْ عَسَىٰ أَن يَكُونَ

قَدِ اقْتَرَبَ أَجَلُهُمْ فَبِأَيِّ حَدِيثٍ بَعْدَهُ يُؤْمِنُونَ

(7:185) Have they not looked at the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all the things that God has created? And does it ever occur to them that the end of their life may be near? Then, in which Hadith (= saying/word), other than this (Quran) do they believe in?

لَقَدْ كَانَ فِي قَصَصِهِمْ عِبْرَةٌ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ مَا

كَانَ حَدِيثًا يُفْتَرَىٰ وَلَٰكِن تَصْدِيقَ الَّذِي بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ

وَتَفْصِيلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ

(12:111) Verily, there is a lesson to be drawn from their stories for men who possess intelligence. This (Quran) is not a fabricated Hadith; On the contrary, it confirms that which came before it, it provides a detailed explanation of everything, as well as guidance and mercy for people who believe.

وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَشْتَرِي لَهْوَ الْحَدِيثِ لِيُضِلَّ عَن سَبِيلِ

اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَيَتَّخِذَهَا هُزُوًا أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ مُّهِينٌ

(31:6) Among the people, there are those who uphold baseless Hadiths to divert from the path of God without knowledge, and take it (the Quran) as a mockery. These have incurred a humiliating retribution.

اللَّهُ نَزَّلَ أَحْسَنَ الْحَدِيثِ كِتَابًا مُّتَشَابِهًا مَّثَانِيَ

تَقْشَعِرُّ مِنْهُ جُلُودُ الَّذِينَ يَخْشَوْنَ رَبَّهُمْ ثُمَّ تَلِينُ

جُلُودُهُمْ وَقُلُوبُهُمْ إِلَىٰ ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ذَٰلِكَ هُدَى اللَّهِ

يَهْدِي بِهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَمَن يُضْلِلِ اللَّهُ فَمَا لَهُ مِنْ هَادٍ

(39:23) God has revealed [herein] the best Hadith: It is a book that is consistent, and points out both ways (to Heaven and Hell). It makes the skins of those who fear their Lord shiver; in the end, their skins and their hearts soften up at God’s remembrance. Such is God’s guidance; which He bestows upon whomever He wills. As for whomever God lets go astray, there is no guide for him.

تِلْكَ آيَاتُ اللَّهِ نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ

فَبِأَيِّ حَدِيثٍ بَعْدَ اللَّهِ وَآيَاتِهِ يُؤْمِنُونَ

(45:6) These are God’s verses which we recite unto you [O Muhammad] truthfully. Therefore, in which Hadith other than GOD and His verses do they believe in?

“In which Hadith other than GOD and His verses do they believe?”: This makes it clear that whichever hadiths from Muhammad that is not already directly cited in the Quran cannot possibly be followed or trusted because it would be a hadith other than “God and His verses”.

فَبِأَيِّ حَدِيثٍ بَعْدَهُ يُؤْمِنُونَ

(77:50) Then, in which Hadith, other than this (Quran), do they believe?

Let us imagine that the hadiths attributed to Muhammad were authentic, which is lights years from being the case. Even then, some of his sayings would contain mistakes. We cannot blindly rely on words of men, even when they are messengers: Only God’s revelation (the Quran) is perfect and does not contain any “contradictions” as witnessed in 4:82. The Quran provides us the only authentic hadiths of past messengers (they usually provide good examples, and sometimes bad ones, proving how imperfect they are), as well as authentic hadiths of all kind of human beings in the history of mankind (kings, soldiers, men, women, believers, disbelievers, angels, satan…).

In addition, and when it comes to hadiths collections, we know that the earliest were written down about two centuries after Muhammad passed away. As a result. they contain numerous contradictions, and the rules that were designed to establish which hadiths are allegedly reliable and which ones are not were established by men who strayed away from the right path, not by God.

God is the one who teaches the Quran, not Muhammad:

(55:1) The Most Gracious. (55:2) He is the one who taught the Quran.

God did not need any of Muhammad’s sayings (other than those He chose to be part of the last revelation) to clarify the message of the Quran for mankind after he passed away. The reason is that God Himself is the one who teaches the Quran, which He designed to be fully detailed. It contains all the information we need to inherit the perfect religion.

4. Quranic verses cited out of context to justify following hadiths and sunnah.

4.1 The meaning of verse 59:7

Aside from the fact that whoever has a good heart will naturally reject horrible and absurd hadiths, we are going to study in detail why it is shameful both to believe in them and disgraceful to call people who reject them “kafeerun” (infidels).

Sunnis and Shias claim that the Quran is not fully detailed and that we need the Hadiths and Sunnah of the prophet to complement the Quran. Let us study the verses upon which they rely to claim that the Quran corroborates following sayings and traditions other than the Holy book revealed to Muhammad.

Sunnis and Shias regularly quote verse 59:7:

(59:7) whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and refrain from whatever he forbids you

This is usually how they will choose to quote the verse. At first glance, it seems that the meaning they derive from the verse may be correct, but if you take a closer look, you will see three little points of suspension () before and after the sentence. Could it be that the verse has been only quoted partially?  Let us read the entire verse just in case to check if the meaning endorsed by Sunni authorities is correct, or if there is a more somber agenda behind the fact that the verse is only quoted partially:

(59:7) Whatever [spoils] from the people of the towns God has turned over on His Messenger, shall belong to God, His Messenger, as well as those closely related, the orphans, the poorest people and the wayfarer in need; so that it does not remain among the rich among you. Whatever the Messenger gives you, take it and refrain from whatever he forbids you. Fear God; for God is stern in retribution.

Verse 59:7 is directly related to verse 8:41:

(8:41) And [you shall] know that whatever spoils of war you may geta fifth (20%) belongs to God, as well as the messenger, the close relatives, the orphans, the needy, and the [stranded] wayfarer, if only you believe in God and in what was sent down to Our servant on the day of decision, the day when the two parties clashed; God has complete power over everything.

Therefore, once placed in its proper context, it becomes obvious that verse 59:7 has absolutely nothing to do with advocating following the hadiths or sunnah of the prophet. Verse 59:7 is connected to 8:41 and simply refers to the fact that if spoils of war are seized after a battle, there are different categories of people to whom a 20% share (specifically mentioned in 8:41) should go to as obligatory charity (zakât). Therefore, aside from what is set aside as charity after the battle, whatever the messenger gives to his soldiers from the spoils of war, they have to take it, and refrain from whatever he forbids them.

In other words, Sunnis and Shias are intentionally lying to you: They extract from the verse a radically different meaning than the one intended by God in order to entice them to follow “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6), thus diverting them from the right path of Islam.

God categorically condemns such evil behavior:

(5:13) Thus, as a result of their breaking their covenant, we cursed them (the children of Israel) and We hardened their hearts: They distort the words [of God] from their context and forgot part of what they were reminded of it [the Torah]; you will not cease to unveil their treachery, except a few of them. So forgive them and ignore [them]. Indeed, God loves those who do good deeds. 

4.2 The messenger teaches us the book and wisdom

The second example of manipulation of the word of God to attempt to justify following “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6) is that the Quran mentions in several instances that God or his messengers teach us “the book and wisdom”: They claim that the book, of course, is the Quran, and that the wisdom corresponds to hadiths and sunna, which shed light on or clarify the Quran in many instances, alleging that the book of God is not self sufficient, that is to say not fully detailed.

رَبَّنَا وَابْعَثْ فِيهِمْ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِكَ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ

الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ

(2:129) Our Lord! Designate a messenger among them who will recite Your verses, and will teach them the book and wisdom, and will purify them. In truth, you are The Almighty, Most wise.

كَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا فِيكُمْ رَسُولًا مِّنكُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْكُمْ آيَاتِنَا وَيُزَكِّيكُمْ

وَيُعَلِّمُكُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُم مَّا لَمْ تَكُونُوا تَعْلَمُونَ

(2:151) Likewise, We have sent you a messenger from among you who recites to you Our verses and purifies you and teaches you the book and wisdom and teaches that which you did not know. 

وَيُعَلِّمُهُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَالتَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنجِيلَ

(3:48) And He (God) will teach him (Jesus) the book and wisdom, the Thora and the gospel.

وَإِذْ أَخَذَ اللَّهُ مِيثَاقَ النَّبِيِّينَ لَمَا آتَيْتُكُم مِّن كِتَابٍ

وَحِكْمَةٍ ثُمَّ جَاءَكُمْ رَسُولٌ مُّصَدِّقٌ لِّمَا مَعَكُمْ لَتُؤْمِنُنَّ

بِهِ وَلَتَنصُرُنَّهُ قَالَ أَأَقْرَرْتُمْ وَأَخَذْتُمْ عَلَىٰ ذَٰلِكُمْ صْرِي

قَالُوا أَقْرَرْنَا قَالَ فَاشْهَدُوا وَأَنَا مَعَكُم مِّنَ الشَّاهِدِينَ

(3:81) And when God took a covenant from the prophets [He said]: “This is what I gave you (second person plural) from the Book and wisdom. Afterwards, a messenger came to you (second person plural) confirming what was with you (second person plural): You shall believe in him and you shall support him.” He said, “Do you approve and take this burden of mine?” They said, “We approve.” He said: “Then bear witness, and I stand with you among the witnesses.”

We see in the above verses that God gave the book and wisdom to numerous messengers, not just Muhammad. Where are their authentic books of hadiths beside the book of God? What is the connection between “wisdom” and “hadiths” when the latter are not even mentioned? Absolutely none, of course. But I certainly do have a question for those who claim otherwise: “In the hadiths that advocate stoning to death the adulterer, killing the apostate, performing genital mutilation on women, cutting the hand of the thief, or that allow beating or flogging your wife if she disobeys, and all the other horrible things that contradict and violate the Quran and drag the name of Islam and the prophet through the mud, where is the so called “wisdom” you are talking about?” Respond to this if you are truthful!

If you give the Quran to someone who is astray, how can he benefit from it? He initially lacks wisdom, and if God does not endow it to him, he will remain in his ignorance. God points out that He gives “the book and wisdom” because His books (the Torah, the Gospel and the Quran) are utterly useless if we are not blessed with wisdom at the same time. We see in 3:48 and 3:81 that not only God teaches “the book and wisdom” to His messengers, but that messengers in turn teach “the book and wisdom” to the believers (2:129, 2:151). Wisdom is God’s gift; it is immaterial (unlike hadiths which are compiled into books) and is based on faith, good deeds and justice; it is the exact opposite of the message of corruption advocated by “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6). Messengers or simple believers, we all intensely need God’s wisdom to understand His books.

4.3 The messenger is an excellent example.

Another verse which they claim refers to following hadiths and Sunnah is the fact that the Quran says that Muhammad is “an excellent example” for the Muslim community:

(33:21) Certainly, the messenger of God is an excellent example for whoever seeks God and the Last Day, and remembers God frequently.

The context of the verse is a battle where Muhammad’s courage and devotion to God serves as “an excellent example” for the believers, both at the time of the revelation, as well as for future generations since the Quran is timeless. This “excellent example” provided by the prophet during a battle has simply nothing to do with the alleged necessity for Muslims to follow questionable Hadiths attributed to Muhammad and written down two centuries after his death.

A very simple proof that traditional Muslims quote 33:21 completely out of context is the following verse where “Abraham and those with him” are also said to be “good examples”:

(60:4) Certainly, there is for you a good example in Abraham and those with him when they said to their people, “We disown you and the idols that you worship besides God. We denounce you, and you will see nothing from us except animosity and hatred until you believe in God alone.” However, a mistake was committed by Abraham when he said to his father, “I will pray for your forgiveness, but I possess no power to protect you from God.” “Our Lord, we trust in You, and submit to You; to You is the final destiny”.

Does 60:4 imply that we should follow the Hadiths and Sunnah of “Abraham and those with him”? We obviously do not have hadiths and sunnah of “Abraham and those with him”. The good example provided by “Abraham and those with him” is no other than the example narrated in the verse itself! By the way, verse 60:4 points at a mistake that Abraham made regarding praying for his father’s forgiveness.

Muhammad, Abraham and other messengers are both shown providing good and sometimes bad examples in the Quran, and “the good example” to follow is most certainly not a command to follow the hadiths and sunnah of the messengers and believers other than what is already mentioned directly in the last revelation. Again, we are witnessing that traditional Islam manipulates the meaning of the Quran to claim we should follow extra Quranic sources. It is not what the Quran says.

4.4 Obey God and the messenger.

The Quran mentions numerous times the command to “obey God and the messenger”.

For example:

(3:32) Say: “Obey God and the messenger”; and if they turn away, then indeed God does not love the disbelievers.

(4:13) These are God’s limits; and whoever obeys God and His messenger, he will admit him to gardens below which there are flowing streams.

Trinity, a doctrine which does not make any sense, became an unquestionable belief in the Christian world after centuries of persecuting and killing whoever would not believe in it. In a similar way, traditional Islam has brainwashed Muslims to believe that hadiths that were written down (for the earliest ones) about one hundred (imam Malik) or two hundred years (Bukhari and Muslim) after the prophet passed away are perfectly authentic and reliable, as long as a chain of allegedly reliable witnesses has been identified.

Just like it is the case for trinity in Christianity, every Muslim is taught from childhood that such hadiths are unquestionable and anyone who dares not not believe in them is regarded as an infidel.

In reality, there is not one decent court of justice in the world that would give any credit to a testimony that has been passed down orally for such a long time. Why wasn’t such testimony written down right away to assert its reliability to begin with if such information was so important for the future of mankind?

The human race has a strong tendency to follow the crowd blindly, and it is why people fail to see how ridiculous it is to rely upon hadiths and sunnah.

Do any of the many verses of the Quran which command to “Obey God and the messenger” tell us to “obey God and the hadiths and sunnah which were going to be written down 200 years after Muhammad passed away”? Of course not.

On the contrary, such verses tell us that:

– (1) When Muhammad was alive, the believers had the obligation to obey him in every way.

– (2) Now that Muhammad is dead, we have to obey God and the messenger’s perfect teachings and hadiths that are perfectly preserved directly in the Quran and certainly not the unreliable fables written down 200 years or more after his death: We pointed at earlier that there are 332 such authentic hadiths of the prophet in the Quran, which is every time God orders to Muhammad to “say” [Qul! = “Say!”, second person masculine in the imperative] a specific sentence. The Quran is a conversation between Allah and the holy prophet. In addition to the 332 “qul!” (Second person singular, imperative form), God speaks to the prophet in the second person singular hundreds more times (for example: 15:87, 96:1, 108:1, 112:1…).

When Muhammad was alive, the believers had the obligation to obey him as a messenger of God, as a head of state and as a commander in chief. Incredibly, nothing of what Muhammad said when he was alive was ever written down, except sayings which God ordered him to recite and decided would directly be part of the Quran. It is very disturbing for hadiths followers that some hadiths classified as the most authentic (Muslim & Ibn Hanbal) tell us that Muhammad himself had in reality forbidden any of his sayings to be written down, except those chosen by God to be part of the Quranic revelation. No one dared to disobey Muhammad at the time, and it is the only logical explanation why we had to wait for at least 200 years to start seeing ignorant people like Bukhari and Muslim attempt to collect sayings that had been forbidden to be collected in the first place:

Abi Saeed Al Khudry may God be pleased with him reported that the messenger of God may God exalt him & grant him peace said: “Do not write anything from me except the QuranAnyone who writes anything other than the Quran shall erase it.”!!! (Muslim, Zuhd 72; Ibn Hanbal 3/12,21,39)

The Quran conveys a similar prohibition in an even stronger manner:

(69:40) Indeed this [Quran] is the utterance of an honorable messenger; (69:41) Not the utterance of a poet; [but] rarely do you believe. (69:42) And not the utterance of a soothsayer; [but] rarely do you take heed. (69:43) It [this Quran] is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds. (69:44) And had he uttered on our behalf any sayings, (69:45) We would have seized him by the right hand; (69:46) Then, We would assuredly have severed the main artery [of his heart].

Muhammad would have been put to death immediately and thrown in hell if he had asked for his own sayings (other than those already part of the Quranic revelation) to be considered as part of the divine revelation:

(17:73) They almost diverted you (O Muhammad) from what we revealed to you; If you had invented on our behalf anything else, they would have assuredly considered you as a friend. (17:74) And If it were not that we strengthened you, you would certainly have slightly leaned towards them. (17:75) We would then have made you taste double [the punishment] in this life, and double [after] death; You would then have found no one as a protector against us.

Similarly, If we look at the context of verse 4:80, one of the many verses where believers are enjoined to “obey God and the messenger”, we see in 4:82 that the message of the Quran was the only thing Muhammad delivered and followed, because it is a message without any contradiction:

(4:80) Whoever obeys the messenger, has surely obeyed God; to whoever turns away: We have not sent you as a guardian over them. (4:81) And they say: “[We pledge] obedience!” Then, when they are no longer in your presence, a group among them plots during the night against what you say. But God records what they plot during the night. So turn away from them and put [your] trust in God. God suffices when it comes to trust. (4:82) Why do they not reflect upon the Quran? If it were from other than God, they would have found in it numerous contradictions.

The verse does not tell us to reflect about the Quran and hadiths delivered by the prophet Muhammad, but simply to reflect about the Quran because it is a message without any contradictions, unlike any message delivered by any human being, including the prophet Muhammad.

This implies that the religious message that the last prophet delivered was the Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but the Quran. Muhammad’s own imperfect sayings would have at times interfered with the flawless divine revelation. We will prove in the next section quoting the Quran that even though Muhammad was a messenger of God, he was a very imperfect man; Even if we had had authentic hadiths from him written at the time he was alive (other than those cited by the Quran), following them and some of their mistakes would have been a scenario of disaster for the Muslim world.

– (2) Now that the prophet Muhammad is dead, we still can obey him following all the authentic hadiths and examples found in the Quran, which is the only authentic and reliable collection of hadiths that was left to us. This is why every time we obey Muhammad reading the Quran and follow his good example, we obey God directly since he is the one who designed the Quran and chose which hadiths of messengers (and human beings in general) should be used as examples (4:80).

Furthermore, the language of the Quran is very specific and we are never told to “follow God and follow Muhammad” literally, but instead to “follow God and follow the messenger”. This is because when the prophet was alive Muslims had to follow him directly as a messenger who was reciting and following strictly the perfect Arabic Quran. When the prophet died, the Quran replaced Muhammad as a messenger since we find many of the last prophet’s authentic sayings and actions, as well as those of so many humans (messengers or not) in the history of mankind. In addition, we are left with a complete revelation which stands as a testament for the human race; it is fully detailed, and it is therefore a perfect messenger.

5. Was Muhammad infallible? Is it true that the only mistakes Muhammad ever made as a messenger are the ones found in the Quran?

If the Quran does provide plenty of good examples of Muhammad’s behavior and exemplary character, traditional Muslims conveniently forget that it also points at the fact that Muhammad (and other messengers) made several substantial mistakes:

(80:1) He (Muhammad) frowned and turned away. (80:2) When the blind man came to him. (80:3) But what makes you know, if he doesn’t wish to purify himself, (80:4) Or to be reminded, so the reminder would benefit him? (80:5) As for the wealthy; (80:6) You gave to him your attention, (80:7) Even though it is not up to you if he purifies himself. (80:8) but as for the one who came to you full of eagerness, (80:9) And was fearful, (80:10) You ignored him.

Muhammad’s above regrettable behavior is the same as we see every day in real life: People have a very strong tendency to be impressed and respectful of wealthy, powerful or seemingly highly educated people, regardless of their real human qualities; on the contrary, they look down on people with real human qualities who do not have a high social status.

(33:37) Recall that you said to the one who was blessed by God, and blessed by you, “Keep your wife and reverence God,” and you hid inside yourself what God wished to proclaim. Thus, you feared the people, when you were supposed to fear only God. When Zeid was completely through with his wife, we had you marry her, in order to establish the precedent that a man may marry the divorced wife of his adopted son. God’s commands shall be done.

(66:1) O you prophet! Why do you prohibit what God has made lawful for you, seeking to please your wives? God is Oft Forgiving, Merciful.

In 33:37, Muhammad made a catastrophic mistake as he knew about God’s command regarding the right to marry the wife of an adopted child after a divorce, but did not divulge it because he was more afraid of people than God! A similar sin is mentioned in 66:1, as Muhammad prohibited what God had made lawful, seeking to please his wives.

In spite of several verses of the Quran showing that Muhammad was just an imperfect human being just like everybody else, lots of traditional Muslims who do not study the Quran carefully either claim that:

1. Muhammad was infallible;

2. alternatively, those who are more in phase with the Quran and who understand that it is impossible to deny the fact that Muhammad made substantial mistakes claim that such mistakes were all outlined in the Quran and that the prophet was otherwise perfect. By inventing such a lie, they imply that we can rely on the various hadiths collections that have been classified as “sahih” (authentic) by Sunni scholars. The problem with such a theory is that the Quran proves it wrong. Let us judge for ourselves:

(48:1) Indeed, we have granted you (second person singular = O Muhammad) a clear victory. (48:2) So that God may forgive you (second person singular = O Muhammad) your past sins, as well as what will follow [i.e. your future sins], and complete His favor upon you, and guide you in a straight path.

Only three suras (5, 9, 110) were revealed after sura 48. Anyone can read those three suras and will not find any specifics regarding Muhammad making mistakes. This means that Muhammad’s future sins mentioned in 48:2 are sins in addition to those already specifically mentioned in the Quran. If anyone had witnessed Muhammad making the types of mistakes or sins that are referred to in 48:2, and had reported or even written strictly what he had said or done, people who believe that the hadiths of the prophet are the equivalent of Quranic truths meant to be followed after his death could have easily been misled on a number of occasions, as they would have been influenced by the mistakes of an imperfect man. Furthermore, let us imagine that some hadiths were correctly reported despite a gap of at least two centuries between the time they were uttered and the time they were written down, we do not necessarily know their exact context, and we may therefore misunderstand them as well.

This is to avoid such types of confusion that God decreed that the Quran ALONE is to be followed (17:46). It is also why God ordered Muhammad to alert people that he was a fallible human being just like anybody else:

(18:110) Say, (O Muhammad): “I am no more than a human being like you….”

5.1 The Quran: Fully detailed.

Sunni and Shia Muslims claim that the Quran is not fully detailed and that it is impossible to fully understand it, as well as all details of our religion, without additional sources beside the Quran, that is to say without hadiths and sunnah.

It is their opinion. Now, here’s what God Almighty says:

(6:114) Shall I seek other than God as source of law, when He is the One who revealed to you (second person plural = all Muslims) this Book (the Quran) fully detailed ?! And those whom We blessed with prior revelations (lit. “the Book”) know [for a fact] that it is the truth sent down from your Lord ! Therefore, do not be among those who doubt. (Also see 7:52, 10:37)

God Himself proclaims that the Quran is fully detailed. So who should we believe? God, or Sunni and Shia scholars who claim that the Quran is not fully detailed?

It is easy to prove that many of the so called “Sahih Hadiths” (strong Hadiths) are false because lots of them are in blatant contradiction with the Word of God (The Quran). We will provide a few incontrovertible examples later in the article.

Directly in line with fact that the Quran is fully detailed, the Word of God warns us that there is a category of people who are disgusted when the Quran alone is advocated:

(17:46) And we cast a veil upon their hearts, preventing them from understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you mention (or remember) your Lord using the Quran ALONE (wahdahu) they turn away their backs in aversion.

When God appointed Muhammad as a messenger, He did not let him speak out of his own desire: He commanded him to recite word for word a number of specific sentences that were destined to guide the human race on the right path; Most notably, and no less than 332 times, God commands Muhammad to proclaim specific sentences by saying: “Qul” (Say!/Proclaim!), followed by a specific command that we have to recite and follow faithfully. Such commands obviously indirectly apply to the believers as well every time they read the Quran and are examples of perfectly reliable hadiths, because God himself tells us word for word what we need to say (!). This is obviously a world of difference when we compare them with the ones that were written down two or more centuries after the revelation of the Quran, not only because it is next to impossible to preserve such hadiths through oral tradition after such an incredibly long period of time, but also because such hadiths are not found in the Quran, and therefore are not part of the divine revelation. Even if rarely some may happen to be correct, we do not need them because the Quran is already fully detailed; they will at best be a repeat of what the Quran already says.

5.2 Muhammad’s hadiths found in the Quran are the only hadiths of the prophet we are allowed to follow: A profound example to meditate.

Let us witness an example of such authentic Quranic hadiths of the prophet which enlightens us regarding Muhammad’s mindset following strictly the Quran alone:

(7:203) And whenever you do not bring them a verse (for instance to answer their questions), they say: “Why didn’t you make up one?!” Proclaim (O Muhammad): “I follow exclusively (انما = “only”, “exclusively” = exclusive particle) what is revealed to me from my Lord”! This (solemn proclamation) is enlightenment from your Lord (“your” = second person plural = all Muslims), and guidance and mercy for people who believe.

This proves that Muhammad followed exclusively the verses that were revealed to him, God saying that this should be an “enlightenment from your (second person plural) Lord”, meaning that all believers should follow the example of Muhammad who used to follow exclusively what was revealed to him.

6. Shocking hadiths that contradict the Quran and disfigure Islam: When satan’s law takes precedence over God’s law.

6.1 Is stoning to death the adulterer a Quranic law; does it contradict the Quran ?

Hadiths contradict the Quran in numerous ways and it would take a very long study to provide an extensive list.

We will choose to deal with hadiths which focus on the issue of stoning to death the adultery and female circumcision, both of which are advocated by alleged “Sahih” (authentic) hadiths. We will quote key Quranic verses which demonstrate that they are false and blatantly contradict god’s law .

There are numerous hadiths which state that a person who commits adultery shall be stoned to death. Such hadiths are responsible for the fact that many people found guilty of adultery in traditional Muslim societies have been stoned to death over the past centuries, and it is still the case in a number of countries including Saoudia Arabia, Iran, Sudan, Pakistan, The United Arab Emirates, ….

Let us read again Muslim’s famous “Sahih” (“authentic”) hadith quoted earlier:

‘Ubada b. as-Samit reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Receive (teaching) from me, receive (teaching) from me. Allah has ordained a way for those (women). When an unmarried male commits adultery with an unmarried female (they should receive) one hundred lashes and banishment for one year. And in case of married male committing adultery with a married female, they shall receive one hundred lashes and be stoned to death.

No one can deny that the law of stoning the adulterer is part of the Sunni and Shia religions. Let us now look at what the Quran says regarding the punishment for adultery:

(24:2) [As for] the unchaste women (azzâniyatou) and the unchaste men (azzânî) [having sexual intercourse while not married to one another], flog each of them a hundred lashes, and do not let [your] pity towards them keep you from carrying out God’s law, if you believe in God and the Last Day. And let a group of believers witness their (dual = both of them) punishment. (24:3) The unchaste men shall not be able to marry except a person guilty of fornication/adultery or a pagan, and the unchaste woman will not be able to marry except a person guilty of fornication/adultery or a pagan; Such a thing is forbidden for the believers (al muwmineen = Muslims).

Insincere Sunni and Shia Muslims distorted the meaning of the words “zâniyatou” and “zânî” (unchaste) above claiming that it only relates to unmarried people found guilty of fornication. This way, they disfigure the truth saying that hadiths about stoning do not contradict the Quran since only married people are stoned to death. In reality, the fact is that no matter how hard you try to misinterpret and manipulate the Word of God, stoning to death the adulterer is never mentioned in the Quran.

The Quran is fully detailed and it does make any difference between married and unmarried people, both of whom receive 100 lashes in case of fornication as witnessed in 24:2.

By the grace of God, verse 4:25 exposes permanently the lies of Sunnis and Shias who distorted the meaning of “zâniyatou” and “zânî”:

(4:25) And whoever among you is not in a position to marry a free believing woman (muhsanat = woman who is not under the yoke of slavery), then [you may find a spouse] among the young believing women whom you possess (lit. “with your right hands” = who are under the yoke of slavery). God knows [the nature of] your faith, you are from one another, so marry them with the permission of their family, and grant them their due dowry in an equitable manner; [they should] be chaste, not immoral women, and not have secret lovers. If once married they become guilty of immorality (in the context adultery), they receive half the punishment (100/2 = 50 lashes) of a free woman (muhsanat = free woman, married or not, not necessarily Muslim according to the definition of the word). This is directed to whomever among you fears [to fall into] sin, and it is better for you to remain patient; God is oft forgiving, Most Merciful.

Since a married woman who was previously under the yoke of slavery only receives half the usual punishment in case of adultery, it proves incontrovertibly that the punishment for a married person is 100 lashes (as we saw in 24:2), not stoning to deathYou can divide 100 by two (50 lashes), but you cannot possibly divide death by two. This is how God Almighty designed His honorable and powerful Quran to defeat the pagan law of stoning.

Verse 4:25 therefore proves incontrovertibly that the definition of “azzâniyatou” and “azzânî” in 24:2 refers both to married and unmarried people who have sex outside of wedlock.

We have here the absolute proof that because of corrupted hadiths, the Sunni and Shia religions gave precedence to a pagan law over God’s law: we are unfortunately talking here about killing human beings in the most horrendous manner (stoning to death).

Which religion other than the religion of satan would allow such a despicable law to replace God’s law? The Quran states that inventing laws that contradict the Quran is “shirk” (establishing other deities beside God, see 6:115, 18:27), the most grievous sin in Islam since it leads to hell if maintained until death. People are free to consult the article “fornication, adultery” for more proofs that the law of stoning blatantly violates the Quran.

Even worse, even after being told about verses 24:2 and 4:25 and the impossibility to divide death by two, lots of Sunnis and Shias surprisingly still claim that stoning the adulterer is God’s law. What kind of logic can justify maintaining such corrupt beliefs when God’s law defeats the law of stoning so clearly ?!

The reality is even uglier than it seems as advanced sunni scholars are actually perfectly aware that the law of stoning contradicts blatantly the Quranic law: they do not hesitate nor are they ashamed to proclaim that alleged “Sahih (strong) hadiths” about Stoning the adulterer (such as Muslim, Book 017, Number 4191) abolished the Quranic law of 100 lashes decreed in the Quran !!!

The following commentary of verse 4:15 (regarding the punishment for adultery) is very typical of the Sunni and Shia mindset and was published in a French translation of the Quran (“Le Coran”, Translation Mohammed Chiadmi, 4th edition, 2010; overseen and validated by Tarik Ramadan, Shaykh Yusuf Ibram, Shaykh Mohammed minta, Shaykh Zakaria Seddiqi):

“God offers them another way out”: “This verse was abrogated by the Sunnah in a Sahih hadith reported by Muslim (Sahih Muslim bi sharh an-Nawawi volume 11, page 154). According to this hadith, fornication is punished with the sentence cited in sura 24:2; and adultery by stoning, and not the sentence initially meant in this verse, See also 24/2-9 and footnote.”

(Translated from French by the author of the article, bold letters and red color are added. What the sunni scholar means by “stoning” is obviously stoning to death.)

In satanic sunni and shia religions, a person convicted of adultery is often buried to the waist and stoned to death in accordance with so called “sahih hadiths” that blatantly violate and contradict God’s law (the Quran) which decrees a punishment of 100 moderate lashes. When God’s law is placed in its proper context in the Quran, no one should ever die or even be injured after applying the Quranic law as proven in the article “fornication, adultery” on this website.

They choose to idolize horrible and baseless hadiths written down for the first time more than two centuries after the Quran was revealed, instead of submitting to God’s law perfectly detailed in the Quran (4:60, 42:21), and despite the fact that God Himself proclaims that his law cannot be abrogated (6:115, 18:27) !!! This is why the Quran says that there is no worse blindness than the blindness of the heart (22:46).

Here is what God proclaims about people who refuse to submit to and violate God’s law, wether Jewish, Christians or Muslims:

(5:47) And let the people of the Gospel judge in accordance with what God has revealed therein. And whoever does not judge in accordance with what God has revealed, those are the transgressors!

(5:48) And We revealed to you (O Muhammad) the book in which lies the truth (the holy Quran); confirming what lies between his two hands [inherited] from the holy scriptures (lit. “the book”) and guarding it. So judge (O Muhammad) between them in accordance with what God has revealed, and do not follow their errant views since the truth has come to you. We have devised for [all of] you a law and a clear way…

(5:49) And judge (O Muhammad) between them (Jewish, Christians, Muslims) in accordance with what God has revealed, and do not follow their errant views and beware of them, lest they tempt you away from some of that which God has revealed to you … Is it the judgment of the time of ignorance that they seek ?! And who is better than God when it comes to judge for people who firmly believe?

There are four schools of religious law in the Sunni world (90% of the Islamic world) that are “authorized” to interpret the law in the Islamic society, even though they sometimes differ on critical issues. They are the of the Islamic society when it comes to interpret the law. They are the Maliki, Hanbali, Hanafi and Shafi’i schools, and they base their interpretations on the Quran, hadiths and sunnah. For instance, according to the Maliki rite (after the interpretations of the imam Malik, and considered the least strict of the four schools), the following rules are to be implemented:

If one refuses to perform the ritual prayer (Salaat), he is put in isolation until the next prayer, then put to death if he refuses to perform the next prayer.

– The apostate shall be put to death.

– The adultery shall be stoned to death.

This is very simply completely in line with the “Sahih” hadiths we witnessed in this article.

6.2 Is female “circumcision” (in reality “Female Genital Mutilation”) a Quranic law ?

We are going to take this most controversial issue as an example to understand what the four schools are really about, so everyone can evaluate if their enormous weight on the Islamic world is justified; together with hadiths and sunnah, we are going to see that they are actually responsible for Islam to be completely :

Female Genital Cutting (FGC), also known as Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) or female circumcision, refers to “all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs whether for cultural, religious or other non-therapeutic reasons.” (Quoted from Wikipedia).

Female genital cutting is recommended (not mandatory) in the maliki and Hanbali school; it is “sunnah” (strongly recommended) in the Hanafi school and mandatory in the Shafi’i School.

Let us cite again the “sahih” hadiths that are responsible for the fact that all four schools agree that FGM is a good thing:

Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75; Abu Dawud, Adab 167:

Abu al-Malih ibn `Usama’s father relates that the Prophet said: “Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women.”

Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 41, Number 5251:

“A woman used to perform circumcision in Madinah. The Prophet (PBUH) said to her: ‘When you circumcise, do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.’”

Sahih Muslim, Book 003, hadith 0684

“When two circumcised parts unite, then bathing becomes obligatory.”

Lots of Muslims never heard about that because it is a very inconvenient and disturbing truth. Sunni Religious authorities are well aware of what the four schools say about FGM, and often try to avoid the subject or hide it. Such is the type of shameful foundation on which traditional Islam is built, and which they trust. Female Genital Mutilation (called “Female Circumcision” by those who try to disguise what it really is) is obviously never mentioned in the Quran, and for a good reason: It is a practice inspired by satan.

One more time: The Quran is fully detailed and does not mention such a practice, it is by definition not part of Islam.

If Hadiths, Sunnah and “the four schools” combined can influence people in such a way that they accept and enforce such horrible laws, it means that the foundation on which the Islamic world is built is permanently cracked. We cannot trust them in any way. It means that traditional Islam needs to face its devils and undergo a complete revolution. We need to go back to the essence of Islam: The Quran alone, which contradicts all the horror found in Hadiths and Sunnah.

The ulemas, or “doctors” in religious law, whether for or against Female Genital Mutilation, will fight until the Day of Resurrection on the issue (and many others), simply because FGM is irreparably acknowledged in the Hadiths and Sunnah. It is written, they cannot erase it. This is why today, and as we speak, in countries like Egypt, Jordan, Saoudia Arabia, Irak, and a plethora of African countries, just to name a few, throngs of Muslim women (millions every year), sometimes the majority in a given region or country, are sexually and psychologically mutilated. Can we even try to fathom all the suffering endured by women, all the broken lives? Only victims can, it’s too horrible. Shame on you traditional Islam!

Just in passing, the sahih hadith that unequivocally states that we shall kill the apostate (Sahih al-Bukhari 9/57, mentioned earlier) and rulings of the sunni schools of thought that proclaim that someone who does not pray shall be put to death (based on interpreting various hadiths) blatantly contradict 2:256:

لَا إِكْرَاهَ فِي الدِّينِ قَد تَّبَيَّنَ الرُّشْدُ مِنَ الْغَيِّ

فَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِالطَّاغُوتِ وَيُؤْمِن بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ اسْتَمْسَكَ

بِالْعُرْوَةِ الْوُثْقَىٰ لَا انفِصَامَ لَهَا وَاللَّهُ سَمِيعٌ عَلِيمٌ

(2:256) There shall be no compulsion in religion. The right way has now become distinct from the wrong way: Therefore, whoever rejects the powers of evil and believes in God has indeed grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks; God is all-hearing, all-knowing.

A religion that threatens to kill you if you do not pray or want to embrace a different religion will easily make you live in fear and can seriously hamper your freedom; this is the utmost level of compulsion and religious dictatorship one can ever experience. This is why those hadiths and rulings have been inspired by “the powers of evil” (2:256), not by God, and are the most horrible type of corruption of the word of God. One who chooses not to pray or to leave Islam will definitely be held accountable on the Day of Judgment, but his or her choice shall be respected as he or she cannot be forced according to God’s law, the Holy Quran.


تِلْكَ آيَاتُ اللَّهِ نَتْلُوهَا عَلَيْكَ بِالْحَقِّ

فَبِأَيِّ حَدِيثٍ بَعْدَ اللَّهِ وَآيَاتِهِ يُؤْمِنُونَ

(45:6) These are God’s verses which we recite unto you [O Muhammad] truthfully. Therefore, in which HADITH other than GOD and His verses do they believe in?

إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَا التَّوْرَاةَ فِيهَا هُدًى وَنُورٌ يَحْكُمُ بِهَا النَّبِيُّونَ

الَّذِينَ أَسْلَمُوا لِلَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالرَّبَّانِيُّونَ وَالْأَحْبَارُ بِمَا

اسْتُحْفِظُوا مِن كِتَابِ اللَّهِ وَكَانُوا عَلَيْهِ شُهَدَاءَ فَلَا

تَخْشَوُا النَّاسَ وَاخْشَوْنِ وَلَا تَشْتَرُوا بِآيَاتِي ثَمَنًا قَلِيلًا

وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

(5:44) … and do not barter My verses (the verses of Allah) for a cheap price, and whoever does not judge according to what Allah has revealed (ie the verses of Allah), these are the ones who are disbelievers (al kafiroun)!

Imams often quote “golden rule hadiths” as a bait to lure their followers to believe in hadiths. They are named after the words of Jesus in the Gospel. Example :

Sahih Muslim, Book 1, Hadith 77

It is narrated on the authority of Anas b. Malik that the Prophet (PBUH) observed: “None amongst you believes (truly) until he loves for his brother” – or he said “for his neighbor” – “that which he loves for himself.”

People often succumb to emotion in the face of such apparent beauty which leads them to believe that hadiths cannot be false if they contain such magnificent truth. They thus take the bait, and imams then tell them that they have to believe in sahih hadiths in general to be a true Muslim. It is at that point that they become “disbelievers” because sahih hadiths contain all the horrors that we witnessed in part 1 and grossly contradict Quranic law (kill the adulterer, kill the apostate, cut the hand of the thief, beat your wife, etc…).

God warns us:

(5:44) … and do not barter My verses (the verses of Allah) for a cheap price, and whoever does not judge according to what Allah has revealed (ie the verses of Allah), these are the ones who are disbelievers (al kafiroun)!

Believing in so called “authentic” hadiths implies automatically to believe in horrible laws that contradict the verses of Allah and equates to sinking into disbelief.

(76:4) Indeed, We have prepared for the disbelievers (al kâfirîn) chains and shackles and a blazing fire.

We explained in detail in the article why the golden rule hadiths actually contradict the Quran: They shine like diamonds, but they are mere pieces of glass destined to dupe you.

To people who believe in “hadiths other than God and His verses” (45:6) my question is: Are you on the side of people who follow blindly baseless inherited traditions (Satan’s side, 31:6, 45:6, 6:112-123) or on God’s side (the Quran Alone, 17:46)?

Hadiths grossly contradict the Quran and violate its divine laws, and even contradict themselves. They are all to be discarded, without exception. The Quran provides the details of everything; we don’t need anything beside it (7:52, 6:114, 10:37).

To people who try to compromise, and accept some Hadiths and reject others, are you trying to reinvent your own religion, what to accept and reject, what looks politically correct and what doesn’t? Did God give you a special gift to know for sure which “Sahih” (authentic) hadith is correct and which “Sahih” hadith is in reality inspired by satan? People who try to find a way in between will never succeed and will always be in disagreement and fight which each other because there will never be any unanimity on anything, for instance Female Genital Mutilation and stoning to death the adulterer.

People who dare to give precedence to satanic laws (like stoning the adulterer or female genital mutilation) over the Quran, and despite such laws being clearly condemned by the Quran – are the worst kind of idol worshipers. God will judge between them and us who reject hadiths and uphold the pure Quran. We will see on the Day of Judgment who the kafeerun (infidels) are, and we will see who will be blessed to establish pure Islam on earth. By God, it will not be them, because they are cursed for transgressing God’s laws and replacing them with evil, satanic laws.

The hadiths we quoted in this article are just a few shocking examples we find in the maliki rite and other schools as well. Hadiths and sunnah are much worse than the cancer of Islam. Those who refuse to discard all Hadiths and sunnah (100%) and try to find a way in between only remove the cancer partially. It will keep on growing and they will forever remain a sick, corrupted religion built on a cracked foundation. Sunni and Shia Islam are truly horrible religions. It will never change the extraordinary beauty and peace of real Islam as described in the pure and self sufficient Quran.

Most traditional Muslims who are given a chance to follow the path of the Quran alone refuse to purify their faith because of lack of sincerity and/or fear of social pressure instead of fearing God. The incredible irony is that the very same people who accept hadiths and sunnah blindly would be horrified by them and would strongly condemn them if they had not been born in the Sunni or Shia religion. So what is wrong with them?

Would you delegate the interpretation of the law in your society to a serial killer who stones to death the adulterer, kills the apostate, kills people who refuse to pray, mutilates the genitalia of girls and women? Would such a despicable serial killer still deserve any credit, if we discarded some of the horror, when it comes to interpret the rest of the law ? Or should his interpretations be entirely discarded and rethought according to the only law (GOD’S LAW) and the only school of thought (the QURAN ALONE) that deserves any credit?

Think about it, and pray Allah for guidance.
