COPYING OF HADITHS WAS PROHIBITED BY THE PROPHET
Those who adopted the hadiths as a source of Islam mentioned this fact. If you are aware of this, why insist on writing hadith books? Do you think that you are wiser than the Prophet and that you are more concerned with religion than he? The argument, that the Prophet’s prohibition was due to his concern about the risk that the word of man might be taken for the word of the God, but now that the Quran is there, there is no risk at all, is not a valid argument. O you who base your religion on hadiths! You must burn all hadiths and destroy them, those hadiths that brought along concepts of lawful and unlawful which do not exist in the Quran.
Now we shall tackle some other type of hadiths:
O men! Fire is kindled and like the parts of a dark night the mischief got nearer. I swear by God that there is nothing of which you can accuse me; I have not declared lawful anything other than those mentioned in the Quran, nor have I declared unlawful anything than those mentioned in the Quran.
Ibn Hisham Siret
God has ordained certain sacred duties; do not transgress them. He has laid down certain limits that you should avoid. He has made certain things unlawful that you should abstain from. He has kept certain things concealed from you for your own good; do not be inquisitive about them.
Mahmud Abu Rayya, Enlightenment of the Muhammadan Sunna.
What is announced lawful in God’s book is lawful and what is announced unlawful in God’s book is unlawful.
Abu Favud K. Etime, Tirmizi K.Libas, Ibn Maja Kitabul Etime, Almurajaat.
According to these hadiths there are no unlawful things other than those stated in the Quran. If that is so, according to the hadiths, how can you prohibit shaking hands with women, listening to music and drawing pictures, unless you have recourse to hadiths? According to these hadiths the Prophet announced nothing unlawful other than those mentioned in the Quran. In other words, according to these hadiths, the hadiths you claim to have originated from the Prophet are actually not his own words.
After me 30 years will last the caliphate, to be succeeded by kings…
According to the widely acclaimed hadith book, the Prophet is suspicious of the future, i.e. after the lapse of 30 years. As a matter of fact, the first Four Caliphs’ reign lasted 30 years (Abu Bakr, Omar, Othman, Ali). During the said period no sect had been established, nor a book written to supplement the Quran (see Chapter 11). Why not live up to the Islam of that period during which the Quran was the unique book? But,we believe that the partisans of Ali, hostile to the Omayyads, invented the above hadith. However, anyone who refutes a single hadith transmitted by Bukhari will be considered a heathen. Under the circumstances one should destroy, just like during the reign of the Four Caliphs, and burn the hadith books. Why should credit be given to the sects and the hadith books written under the supervision of the kings succeeding the Four Caliphs?
