traditions (hadith) brought by companions are authentic. Some of
them accused the Prophet (saw) to lie while he was still alive
in his life, and there are some traditions have more than one
meaning, there are some traditions have been invalid but some
other companions had no information, there were some traditions
of specified time and etc. The first and second Khalifa opposed
the accumulation and collection of traditions, and many of
traditions they have burnt. Let us take the example of prayer,
after the death of Prophet (saw) the companions were disagreed
among themselves in the formation of prayer whereas they used to
pray behind and together with the Prophet (saw) for the last 23
years and still they were holding different views. Now if such
is the case, how would the Prophet (saw) inform that if you
follow “the Quran and Sunnah” shall never go astray? Which type
of (practice) Sunnah the Prophet (saw) was talking about, if
they just differ in the formation of prayer, others accused him
of lying, other traditions with several meanings, and etc?
tradition “the Book and Sunnah” actually carry weight and
acceptable, then today we would not witness these different
sects in Islam, because all these differences is due to our
misunderstanding of the Book of Allah and Sunnah of the Prophet
(saw), the how this one will guide us?
When we look
at the Quran, each one has their own tafsir and followed what
they believed to be correct. When we come to the Sunnah that is
more alarming, because not only we require proof regarding of
the hadith, even these Asnad Muslims are differing. Now if the
differences of the Muslims are due to the understanding of the
Quran and Sunnah, how then shall we accept this hadith?
looks at this hadith of “the Book of Allah and the Sunnah” do
not carry weight that it is should highly be reliable. This
hadith is impossible to locate in SAHIH books except in the
Muwatta of Malik. And in Muwata does not contain any Asnad to
explain who had brought the hadith, but only Imam Malik himself
who brought it and who himself has came after more than hundred
year after the death of the Prophet (saw). Such traditions are
known to be WEAK.
“the book and Itrat (progeny)” brought and enlightened by more
than 25 companions in different ways and it is known that a
hadith that is brought by five companions is hadith MUTAWATIR.
So this hadith exceeded 25 companions, hadith of Mutawatir is
heavy and carry weight such as verses of the Quran!
like a garden or city is adorned with every kind of the way. If
you want to gain any kind of fruit in the garden must have
guidance who is required to guide you to show where the fruit
does exist. Or if you come into the city must get the guidance
to show which way to use and how to reach the required place.
Therefore in the same way, the Quran without the guidance we
have trouble understanding it similar to the current situation,
each one believes his tafsir is the correct one.
Sunnah of the Prophet (saw) required to be preserved and a
leader who will provide us with perfect hadith of the Prophet
(saw) in the same way as himself said without a reduction or an
addition. Not like these hadith with us which are contradicting
and differing and other asnad unacceptable.
LEADERS are the progeny (Itrat) of Ahlel Bayt whose job is to
educate the correct education of the Quran and the Sunnah of the
Prophet (saw). So the tradition (hadith) of “Quran and progeny (Itrat)
of Ahlel Bait” is logical, reasonable and a highly acceptable
and not “Quran and Sunnah”!
