Sheikh Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf summarizes his viewpoint on the Quraniyoon (Quranists, Quranism):
“The science of Hadith is one that is dependent on the science of Quran but also one that is necessary for the proper understanding of Quran.
A point I would like to make now is that there are people out there who question the necessity of hadith, in fact, the Quraniyoon claim that hadith is irrelevant and that they will only study Quran. This is a ludicrous claim.
Allah says in Quran: �[2:129] Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall rehearse Thy Signs to them and instruct them in Scripture and Wisdom, and sanctify them: for Thou art the Exalted in Might, the Wise.�
They keyword here being that the messenger is to teach them the book AND impart wisdom upon them. Even the Sahabah had problems understand some of the language of Quran.
In sourat Al-Hashr Allah tells us: �[59:7] So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you.�
He also says: �[4:65] But no, by thy Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make thee judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against thy decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction.�
Finally, Allah says: �[4:59] O ye who believe! obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and those charged with authority among you. If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: that is best, and most suitable for final determination.�
Overall, I believe it is blasphemy on Allah subhanahu wa taala to believe that he sent an irrelevant or faulty messenger. If the messenger was irrelevant and added nothing to the religion, then why didn�t Allah send down the book in one piece? Why pass it to us through a messenger?”
Allah ta’ala says:
قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
قُلْ أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ ۖ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ الْكَافِرِينَ
Say, “if you love Allah, then follow me. Allah will love you and forgive your sins, and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Say, “Obey Allah and His Messenger”. And if they turn away(refusing), verily Allah does not love the Disbelievers.”
Subhan Allah ! Some people of the end-times think they know Islam better than anyone in history! Such people reject the entire Ummah, the great scholars and Imams, the Sahabah, believing that all are liars ! A’udhu billahi min ghadib illah !
May Allah keep the people safe from them.
