View Full Version : Has Islam Changed?

Does anyone think that hadith and sunna are actually teachings not from Allah, therefore they should be considered not valid in religion. The only thing valid in religion would be the Quran because that is the word of Allah. Even though Mohammad was a prophet, hadith and sunna are not God's teachings but stories that people made passing down from generation to generation. This is actually similar to what happened with Jesus. Check out submission.org.

wHY DONT EVERY AGREE TO EVERYBODY, my guess is that this forum has become of a kind - plain boring
I find it strange that people honestly believe that the sunnah is invalid or a threat to jurispudence while knowing that Shariah's primary source for evidence has always been the Quran where-as the secondary source is the Sunna, then the Ijma consensus of Muslims Qiyas reasoning by analogy and Ijtihad reasoning for an application of the law where analogy or precedance cannot be applied.
For an interesting read with regards to Islam on the net.

Consistently throughout the Quran it is stated: "Follow and obey God and His messenger."
The doctrine of Islam is clearly and explicitly outlined in the Quran.
However to practice Islam, as the Quran says: "To obey God" one must "follow and obey the Messenger Mohammed."
So acceptance of Ahadeeth/Sunnat (Sayings/Actions of the Prophet) is very essential in Islam. For instance, prayers are consistently mentioned in the Quran as incumbent on all Muslims. However the details of performing the prayers were left up to the prophet to explain.
And, for the record...Islam will never change and never has. The only thing that changes are people :)
