Hadithism
 
 
Posted on 
Hadithism
, stems from the belief that the Qur’an Alone does not su
ffice as a guide formankind to travel along the straight path back towards Allah, and that in actuality it requires
the Qur’an plus countless volumes of books called hadith, along with various other 
supplemental sources, just to be able to comprehend the
Qur’an and make proper use of it.
All Muslims believe in the infinite power, wisdom, and creative ability of Allah, Most High. AllMuslims believe that He Alone was capable of constructing all that exists in the heavensand the earth in six days (in other words six phases) without the least bit of help frommankind. Despite this, very few believe Allah to be capable of authoring the mostcomprehensive guide to living in harmony with the System and Order of Allah in the form ofa simple book, written in a clear and concise format, and in a language that convey themessage in the most comprehensive way.
Some have adopted an extreme position by claiming that the Qur’an is far too complex for 
the average mind to make sense of, and that the average laymen is more likely to misleadhimself as well as all of the other uneducated masses, so Allah designated an elite class of
people who are to be the sole interpreters of the Qur’an while maintaining a complete
monopoly over the system employed in the process of interpretation and translation intoother languages. The scholars are made into Lords, and serve as the defacto gateway thatall must pass through on their way to divine knowledge and wisdom, when in fact it is the
 
clergy who act as nothing but filters of knowle
dge by determining what is “useful knowledge”
and what is not. All interpretations must pass the litmus test of the hadith scholars who areself-
appointed “experts on religion” (religion is not the same as deen), their rulings, and
opinions. Hadithists are following in the footsteps of the Former Peoples (Jews &Christians).Allah says:

They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.
For this very same reason, it is forbidden that any laymen should even utter the slightest
utterance in reference to the meaning of the Qur’an. None should speak on the Qur’an
unless they are a member of the elite class, or one of their students. These are the only
people who are authorized to speak about the Qur’an. Anyone not belonging to either of the
aforementioned groups risks being ostracized in this life as well as going to Hell in the nextshould he/she happen to misinterpret, mistranslate, misunderstand, express an opinion
about, or implement anything found between the pages of the Qur’an without first verifying
its correctness with a Board Certified Scholar of Islam.The Hadithist Sect is comprised of two smaller sub-sects which have renamed themselvesaccording to their sectarian viewpoints, one of which goes by Ahlus Sunnah wa Al-
Jama’ah
(The People of the Sunnah and the Community / Sunni Islam), and the other by Ash-
Shi’atu
Ali or Ash-
Shi’atu Ahlul Bayt (Supporters of Ali / People of the House (of the Prophet) Shi’i
Islam). From there these two sects splinter off into other smaller sects, having only onething in common between them all, and that is their reliance upon Hadith literature to
interpret the Qur’an and to enact laws. Each sect has its own exclusive set of Hadith books
which they use for this very purpose.
This, despite the fact that in many places throughout the Qur’an Allah clearly for 
bids the
mixing of other teachings with that of the Qur’an, and commands that the Qur’an be made
the sole authority in matters of Deen. Hadithist usually counter this argument with ayatssuch as 4:59, which commands all Muslims to obey Allah, the Messenger, and those inauthority among them:

 O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authorityamong you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if youshould believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.
The Interpretation of “Obey Allah & His Messenger”
 For Hadithists, this ayat is interpreted in the following way:
1). Obey Allah = Obey the Qur’an.
 2). Obey the Messenger = Obey the Hadith.
 
3). Obey those in authority (Ulu Al-Amr) among you = Obey the Caliph / Imam / Scholars
Clergy (Ahbār).
 
4). The common belief among the Hadithists is that the words “those in authority” are used
to refer to the elite class, people such as scholars, socio-political leaders, various nobilities,
and according to some, even dictators are included among “those in authority”, which isobviously not based upon any Qur’anic injunction, rather it is based upon untrustworthy,
man-made collections of hadith.Th
ose who have accepted the Qur’an Alone as their sole source of guidance in matters
pertaining to Deen (Universal System and Order of Allah known simply as Islam(Peace/Submission)) reject the Hadithist interpretation of this ayat, because it is
 
inconsisten
t with the Qur’an as a whole. When understood from a purely Qur’anic
perspective it looks more like this:
1). Obey Allah = Obey the Qur’an
 
2). Obey the Messenger = Obey the model of the Messenger as defined in the Qur’an, not
the example as defined in Hadi
th or sources other than Qur’an. Therefore, to obey the
 
messenger would mean that one must follow the same QUR’ANIC System of Judgment that
was enjoined by Allah UPON ALL PROPHETS and their followers with respect to theirauthorized religious texts. Never, in the history of mankind has Allah permitted orcommanded His servants to seek judgments from sources outside of their revealed texts.We do not find any mention of a Sunnah that is to be followed, nor any mention of a bookthat is to be used in conjunction with the revealed books of Allah, and that is an undeniable
fact based upon the Qur’an itself.
 3). Obey those in authority (Ulu Al-Amr) among you = Obedience to those who urge thepeople towards acts of righteousness and obedience to the divine laws, as detailed for us in
the Qur’an. Outside of this, there is no other recognized authority in the Deen of Islam. The
same applies to any man-made clerical hierarchies, titles, ranks, or positions that have been
authorized by man, but not by the Qur’an.
 4). A
ll matters of dispute are to be settled using the Qur’an Alone. We are to submit to theruling just as the Prophets submitted to it. The words “obey Allah and obey the Messenger”
does not mean that there are two separate entities, both of which we must obey in differentaspects of Deen. In reality, it means to obey Allah by obeying the instructions detailed in the
Qur’an as revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, which he delivered word
-for-word tomankind without adding anything of his own.

Obey Allah and the Messenger summed up in one ayat…
