Hadith rejection 🧵
Unfortunately, a great problem we face today is the idea of rejecting Hadith and just relying on the Quran.

Some Muslims believe that following the Prophet's Sunnah is not something that we are meant to do and should instead just follow the Quran.
This is problematic in light of the Quran.

Some verses of the Quran cannot be understood without the Sunnah of the Prophet.

Interpreting them using only the Quran is not a logical approach.
We are told in many places to obey Allah and His Messenger (صلي الله عليه و سلم).
"The only response of the believers, when they are called to Allah and His Rasul so he may judge between them, is to say, “We hear and obey.” It is they who will succeed. For whoever obeys Allah and His Rasul, and fears Allah and is mindful, then it is they who will triumph."
(Surah al-Nur ayah 51-52)
"O believers! Obey Allah and obey the Rasul and those in authority among you. Should you disagree on anything, then refer it to Allah and His Rasul, if you ˹truly˺ believe in Allah and the Last Day. This is the best and fairest resolution."

(Surah Nisa ayah 59)
"But no! By your Lord, they will never be ˹true˺ believers until they accept you ˹O Prophet˺ as the judge in their disputes, and find no resistance within themselves against your decision and submit wholeheartedly."

(Surah Nisa ayah 65)
"He who obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah; but those who turn away - We have not sent you over them as a guardian."

(Surah Nisa ayah 80)
"Say, “If you love Allah, then follow me; Allah will love you and forgive your sins. For Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” Say, “Obey Allah and His Rasul.” If they still turn away, then truly Allah does not like the disbelievers."

(Surah Imran ayah 31-32)
From these verses, it is clear that we are instructed to obey Allah AND the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him).
Furthermore, the Quran tells us that the Prophet has been sent to explain it.
˹We sent them˺ with clear proofs and divine Books. And We have sent down to you ˹O Prophet˺ the Reminder, so that you may explain to people what has been revealed for them, and perhaps they will reflect."

(Surah al-Nahl ayah 44)
So, where do we find these explanations of the Messenger, if they are not in the Quran?

We turn to another source, namely, the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
To reject the Sunnah would leave us deluded and confused.

Here's an example of where this would happen:
"Your only guardians are Allah, His Messenger, and fellow believers—who establish prayer and pay alms-tax with humility."

(Surah al-Maidah ayah 55)
Here, we're told to pay alms-tax and pray.

How much would we have to pay? This isn't in the Quran.

How would we pray? This isn't mentioned in the Quran either.

We would have to turn to the Sunnah for guidance.
A lot of our understanding of the Quran and Islam comes from the Sunnah.

Without it, we would be deluded.

Guys, the biggest loser of all time has to be Zara Kay.
She claimed in a video that if a woman does adultery, she is to be stoned to death but when a man does it, he isn't punished.

She also claimed that a rapist is not punished in Islam for rape.
This thread will be disproving that.

Islamic slavery thread:
1. Yes, before the libtards get upset, Islam DOES allow slavery.

Narrated Jabir:

"The Prophet bought a slave for two slaves."

(Sunan Abi Dawud 3358)
2. However, this slavery is different from other kinds of slavery throughout history. When we think of slavery, we typically think of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and people being treated horribly and sent to colony plantations where they would spend the rest of their loves.
