The Necessity of Hadith And The Disconnect Between The Quran-Only Approach And The Qur'anic Text
About This Book:
Imagine a religion where its adherents openly reject every saying, action, and event surrounding their prophet. It is a Qurʾanist’s reality. What exactly would lead to this stance, this skepticism, towards ḥadith? What would cause a Muslim to reject the teachings of the prophet he adores?! Everything about Islam is questionable without hadiths. What exactly do we know about the Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) without hadiths? Never mind his biography, we can’t even ascertain his identity. The Qurʾān only identifies him as Muḥammad (Q. 3:144). Couldn’t this be referring to Muḥammad bin Maslama (d. 43 AH) instead of Muḥammad bin Abdillah (d. 11 AH)? Necessity of Hadith & Disconnect Between The Quran is directed to Hadīth-Rejecters (Quranists, Quranism), Muslims in general that are on the fence, and conservative Muslims that seek to reaffirm their stance regarding the Authority of Hadiths.
