Muhammadal-Ghazalias-Sakaargues,

"Verily, beliefs, its basis is pure certainty that does

nothaveaspeckofdoubt.Moreover,thebeliefsofIslam

are based upon mutawathir texts and established Aql.

We do not base our Aqeedah upon khabar wahid (i.e.,

AhaadAhadeeth)orguessingthoughts."

MuhammadAbduhualsowrites,

"About the hadeeth which speak about Maryam and

Eesa that the Shaytan does not touch them, and the

hadeeth which speaks about the Shaytan of Allah's

Messenger accepting Islam, and the removal of the

share of Shaytan from his heart - these are from

Dhanni (unsure) reports because they are from Ahaad

hadeethwhichspeakabouttheworldoftheunseen,and

Eeman in the unseen comes under Aqeedah, and

nothing that is dhanni can be accepted concerning it…

We are not responsible to have faith in

information from those Ahadeeth in

ourAqeedah."

[As-Sunnah an-Nabawiya bayna ahlul-fiqah wa ahlul-hadeeth p.66.

Tashree'eah' and 'Ghair Tashree'eah.' They consider basic

Aqeedah, Salaat, Zakaat, Hajj and other worships as Sunnah

Tashree'eah. But Ahadeeth that speak about general public affairs

andrulesandregulationsareaccordingtothem,'GhairTashree'eah'

which does not have to be implemented necessarily. This explains

theiraversionintakingjudgmentfromtheSunnah.

MuhammadAbduhsaid,

“What falls under the Sunnah from the issues of

politics are worldly issues and not Deen. It was so even

during the time of the Prophet and thus it is subject to

shoora(consultation)andrai(opinion)andijtihad(and

therefore can be), accepted, rejected, modified and

madeadditionsto.”

MuhammadAbduhsaysabouttheprohibitionofwomenruler-ship,

"Whatwehaveinourheritageabouttheissueofthe

ruler-ship of women is an Islamic thought and Fiqhi

opinionandFiqhiIjtihadanditisnotfromAllah…"

About the Hadeeth of Allah's Messenger , "No people will ever

prosperwhoplaceawomaninauthorityoverthem."

Abduhsays,

"It is a political prophecy from the Messenger about

the failure of the Majoos - they were the ones who were

ruledbyawoman.Itisnotacommandofprohibitionfor

theleadershipofwomen,neithergeneralnorspecific.It

Thus, we have seen how the Modernists try to force their

interpretation onto the text, just like the Mu'tazilah concerning

whom

Shaikhul-IslamIbnTaymiyahwrites,

"Such people have made Rai their basic beliefs and

then present the words of the Qur'aan on it (take,

rejectandmakeinterpretationbaseduponit),-they

havenopredecessors(inthisact/methodology)from

the Sahabah and the Taba'een, nor from the Imams

of the Muslims; neither in their views or their

tafseer…"
