Bismillah…

Parvezis: those who believe in Quran but not Hadith
-they are the hadith rejecters
-who was the founder of this movement?
-where do they come from? What is their creed? What are their tenets?
-this is not the first time Shaikh Faisal is refuting them
-they were refuted in South Africa as well by Shaikh -
-A lot of them are in South Africa

The founder of the Parvezi movement: Ghulam Parvez
-1903-1985 (born in Balata, India)
-He grew up in a Sufi family (the chisteeya tareka)
-the reason why he started the movement (rejecting hadith):
-he read the hadith: The Rasul married a 9 year old girl (Aisha)
-he did research on the hadith and when he did this research,
-he found out that the hadith was not authentic
-he was upset that people could lie on the Prophet,
-so he rejected every single hadith

This hadith of Aisha’s marriage is not authentic:
-Aisha had a sister called Asma
-Asma was ten years older, she migrated age 27, and Aisha migrated age 17
-and the Prophet got married to Aisha
-after she migrated from Mecca to Medina, not before
-and when the Muslims went on a raid before the Battle of Badr,
-Aisha took part on this raid
-it’s against the principle of the Rasul to take Sahabahs
-to battle under the age of 15
-this proves that Aisha was not 9 when she got married

This hadith caused Ghulam Parvez to reject all hadith
-the man who narrated the hadith of Aisha, when he went to go live in Iraq,
-he became old and senile, therefore,
-Imam Malik rejected the hadith from him as he was unreliable

Hisham ibn Urwa
-He narrated this hadith when he went to Iraq
-if you study Islamic literature, you will know that when Sahabahs became senile,
-hadith was not allowed to be taken from that person
-Hisham mixed the numbers, instead of saying 19
-(age of Aisha when marriage), he said 9

Ghulam Parvez: Quranism, Quraniyoon, hadith rejecters
-When he declared his rejection of hadith in totality,
-500 Ulama of India made takfir on him
-he was a strong activist for Pakistan's independence
-Ghulam Parvez was a strong activist for Pakistan’s independence,
-he was the right hand man of the founder of Pakistan,
-(Muhammad Ali Jinnah)
-the founder of Pakistan was an ismail agakhani
-Muhammad Ali Jinnah himself was a kaafir

The other famous hadith rejecter:

Rashad Khilafah was born in Egypt in 1935
-He was also born in a Sufi family
-His enemies say that he was a Coptic Christian
-with the name: Richard Caliph
-(the claim of his enemies : he was a Coptic Christian,
-and he was heavily funded by the Jews to preach his aqeeda)
-his paymasters were the Jews -
-he called his movement : submission
-and he called his followers the submitters
-Rashad Khilafah was suffering from an inferiority complex
-he refused to call himself a Muslim and he refused to call his religion Islam
-he preferred to use the English words rather than the Arabic words
-he was suffering from low self esteem, etc
-Rashad Khalifa, when he was 43:
-he was charged with raping a 16 year old girl
- he is from a Sufi background:
-Sufis love to lock themselves up in rooms with young girls
-he was charged, he had a plea bargain - he told the girl…
-what he did was necessary
-because he was researching the awrah (private parts) of the women
Awrah: parts of body that is necessary to cover
-the case went to trial, but he went into a plea bargain
-with the judge in regards to the case
-Rashad K . believes that women who are menstruating
-are not allowed to abandon the Salah
-when he went on trips to preach his kufr,
-he appointed his wife to be the imam after him
-he told his wife: even if you are menstruating,
-you should lead the salah and give the khutbah
-(his wife would do this)
-he did not trust anyone else to be appointed, in case they overthrow him
-he set up his headquarters in Tucson, Arizona
-also, Rashad K. does not believe in the 2nd part of the Shahadah:
-Muhammadur Rasul ALLAH
-this is why his enemies said he was a Coptic Christian
-Rashad k. said : after using the computer to study the Quran,
-the number 19 is the mystical number of the Quran
-he said : A prophet and a messenger are different
-he claimed that he himself was a messenger after Muhammad

Truly, you (O Muhammad (saws) are one of the Messengers, (Ya-Sin 36:3)

-he claimed that the Angel Gabriel came and revealed 36:3
-(evidence that he is a messenger, according to him)
-he was a liar and manipulator, he amassed a lot of wealth from his followers
-he said : because I am the messenger of ALLAH after Muhammad,
-I have the power to take out any ayat from the Quran which I don’t like
-so he removed from the Quran 9:128-129

Then he told his followers : Muhammad was not illiterate; Muhammad wrote the Quran himself

Verily, there has come unto you a Messenger (Muhammad (SAWS) from amongst yourselves (i.e. whom you know well). It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty. He (Muhammad (SAWS) is anxious over you (to be rightly guided, to repent to Allah, and beg Him to pardon and forgive your sins, in order that you may enter Paradise and be saved from the punishment of the Hell-fire), for the believers (he is) full of pity, kind, and merciful. (At-Tawbah 9:128)

But if they turn away, say (O Muhammad (PBUH): "Allah is sufficient for me. La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), in Him I put my trust and He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne." (At-Tawbah 9:129)

There are many verses of the Quran which they reject: 62:2

He it is Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger (Muhammad (PBUH) from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them (from the filth of disbelief and polytheism), and teaching them the Book (this Qur'an, Islamic laws and Islamic jurisprudence) and Al-Hikmah (As-Sunnah: legal ways, orders, acts of worship, etc. of Prophet Muhammad SAW). And verily, they had been before in manifest error; (Al-Jumu'ah 62:2)

Rashad K. does not accept this ayah,

-he says Muhammad (PBUH) was not illiterate and he wrote the Quran himself
-because of Rashad K. aversion of Muhammad, he rejects Ahadith in totality
-(this is why his enemies claimed he was a Coptic Christian)
-Because of his hatred of the Rasul SAW, he preached a hadith-free Islam
-that is why his enemies said: he was a Coptic Christian
-pretending to be a Muslim who was funded by the Jews
-because no Muslim can be so evil
-among his aqeeda: No one should be punished for murder,
-theft, zina, until that person is over 40 years old
-because revelation came to Muhammad at 40
-the founder of the movement, Ghulam Parvez, (Rashad K)
-attempted to revive this movement
-the hadith rejecters : their argument is the word hadith means GOSSIP
-so why should I follow gossip? I only follow Quran
-when a person says, I saw Muhammad (SAWS) to this, or that,
-or I heard him say this; this is all gossip

ARGUMENT # 2
-"the best hadith is the book of ALLAH "
-so why should we follow something other than the Quran

ARGUMENT # 3
-they have the audacity to quote a Quranic verse
-and use it as hujjah to reject hadith

We have neglected nothing in the Book, then unto their Lord they (all) shall be gathered. (Al-An'am 6:38)

-so they say, ALLAH said in the Quran
-WE did not leave anything out from this book
-so if ALLAH SWT did not leave out anything in the Quran, who needs hadith?
-the Parvezis use aql to reject hadith
-the new name of the movement : the submitters
-"we don’t follow Islam, we follow Submission"
-we say to the Parvezis : you claim that everything is in the Quran...
-okay bring us one evidence from the Quran that tells us to abandon the hadith
-'since everything is in the Quran, bring us one Quranic verse
-that commands us to abandon hadith '

ARGUMENT # 4
-you claim to believe in the Quran, we put it to you
-that you are a hypocrite and a liar
-because if you were a believer in the Quran,
-consequently you would believe in hadith
-because you were commanded by ALLAH in the Quran to follow hadith
-we will now bring the Quranic verses
-that we ASWJ use to checkmate the Parvezis :

"If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Aali Imran 3:31)

ALLAH SWT said : if you love ALLAH SWT, then follow Muhammad (SAWS)

-when you debate with a munafiqh, it’s like a boxing match,
-each Quranic verses that you bring to him is a punch until he gets knocked out

2. 16:44

With clear signs and Books (We sent the Messengers). And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad (SAWS) the reminder and the advice (the Qur'an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. (An-Nahl 16:44)


-ALLAH SWT said : that HE SWT sent down the Quran to Muhammad (SAWS) , so that Muhammad (SAWS) can explain the Quran to the people

And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad (SAWS) the reminder and the advice (the Qur'an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. (An-Nahl 16:44)

3. 53:3-4

Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. (An-Najm 53:3)

It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (An-Najm 53:4)

ALLAH SWT said: Muhammad (SAWS) does not speak from his own desires

-so the way Muhammad (SAWS) prayed is perfect,
-the way he fasted in Ramadan is perfect,
-the way he instructed us to make hajj is perfect
-that’s why Muhammad (SAWS) said : pray the way you see me pray,
-make hajj the way you see me make hajj
-because the way he prayed and made hajj was PERFECT
-and this is HADITH!

"Pray as you have seen me praying..." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 1, Book 11, Hadith #604]

Knockout punch:

4. 59:7

And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad (SAWS) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. (Al-Hashr 59:7)


ALLAH SWT said : whatsoever the Rasul gives you, take it - whatsoever the Rasul forbids you, abstain it - that is the other evidence, used by the sincere scholars, to prove to you that you have NO CHOICE but to follow the hadith

Knockout punch:
4:150-151

Verily, those who disbelieve in Allah and His Messengers and wish to make distinction between Allah and His Messengers (by believing in Allah and disbelieving in His Messengers) saying, "We believe in some but reject others," and wish to adopt a way in between. (An-Nisa 4:150)

They are in truth disbelievers. And We have prepared for the disbelievers a humiliating torment. (An-Nisa 4:151)

So when the hadith rejecters believe in Quran but not hadith

-they are trying to make a distinction between ALLAH SWT and HIS SWT Messengers
-the hadith rejecters are the enemies of Islam -
-no wonder Rashad K. was killed in 1990; his throat was cut
-this was very shocking for the American gov’t
-because they were very happy with his aqeeda and teachings
-they linked the forensic evidence to someone who ran away and fled to Canada
-he was killed by one of his followers
-what was the straw that broke the camels back?

It was 2 straws:

1. he claimed to be a messenger after Muhammad
2. and he took out from the Quran 9:128-129

Verily, there has come unto you a Messenger (Muhammad (SAWS) from amongst yourselves (i.e. whom you know well). It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty. He (Muhammad (SAWS) is anxious over you (to be rightly guided, to repent to Allah, and beg Him to pardon and forgive your sins, in order that you may enter Paradise and be saved from the punishment of the Hell-fire), for the believers (he (SAWS) is) full of pity, kind, and merciful. (At-Tawbah 9:128)

But if they turn away, say (O Muhammad (SAWS): "Allah is sufficient for me. La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), in Him I put my trust and He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne." (At-Tawbah 9:129)


So if you claim to be a Shaikh and pass dodgy fatwas, people will KILL You; people have jealousy for their deen; this happened to the mufti of Chechnya who passed a fatwa allowing Russians onto the Muslim areas - and he gave his wala to the Russians; he was killed; so Rashad K.'s throat was cut in Tucson, Arizona in 1990 by his followers, they also put petrol all over his body but didn’t bother to set it alight; perhaps because he was near a masjid and they didn’t want it to burn what was the straw that broke the camels back?

1. he claimed to be a messenger after Muhammad
2. and he took out from the Quran 9:128-129
-he told the women in his congregation they could pray
-even when they are menstruating
-He said women must pray when they are menstruating,
-he claimed himself to be a messenger after Muhammad ,

Muhammad ((SAWS) is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the last (end) of the Prophets. And Allah is Ever All¬ Aware of everything. (Al-Ahzab 33:40)

Who is greater? a Messenger or a Prophet?

-a messenger is greater than a Prophet
-a messenger comes with a book - but prophets do not
-Abraham had the scrolls, David had the psalms, and Isa had the Injeel,
-Musa had the Torah, and Muhammad (SAWS) had the Quran; they had their own Shariah
-they were Messengers

Truly, you (O Muhammad (SAWS) are one of the Messengers, (Ya-Sin 36:3)

So Rashad K. even lied on ALLAH; he claimed that ALLAH SWT anointed him as a Messenger after Muhammad and that 36:3 is all about him; and he claimed that the word hadith means gossip - so when people claim to have seen Muhammad (SAWS) do this or that, it is gossip

We have neglected nothing in the Book, (Al-An'am 6:38)

Rasulallah doesn’t speak from his desires

-the hadith makes things compulsory as the Qur'an does
-hadith can make things haraam as well as Qur'an does

Nor does he speak of (his own) desire. (An-Najm 53:3)

It is only an Inspiration that is inspired. (An-Najm 53:4)


This ayah proves that the hadith carries the same power as the Quran in making things haraam or halal for you; hadith carries the same power when making things haraam and halal just as the Quran does because Muhammad (saws) doesn’t speak from his desires

"...The best of the speech is embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best of the guidance is the guidance given by Muhammad. And the most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is error..." (Sahih Muslim, 1885)

-because ALLAH SWT said : Muhammad (SAWS) does not speak from his desires,
-but from Inspiration

EVIDENCES TO PROVE THAT HADITH HAS THE SAME POWER TO MAKE THINGS HARAAM OR HALAL FOR YOU:

1. ALLAH SWT told us to pray 5 times a day, everyday

-but ALLAH SWT did not tell you HOW to pray
-when you pray fajr, you have to recite Surah Fatiha in every rakat –
-Surah Fatiha is compulsory in every rakat in every salah -

Allah's Messenger said, "Whoever does not recite Surat Al-Fatiha (the first Surah of the Qur'an) in this Salat (prayer), his Salat (prayer) is invalid." [Bukhari 1.718

It is haraam to pray salah behind a man who cannot recite Fatiha properly

-salah behind such a man is Bautil
-ALLAH didn’t tell us how to pray in Qur'an
-in Sajdah we say "Subhana Rabbi al Ala"
-in Ruku' we say "Subhana Rabbi al Adhim"
-we know this from hadith and not Quran
-WHEN RASULALLAH DIED THERE WAS FITNAH
-AS TO WHERE THE SAHABAH SHOULD BURY HIM
-some said to burry him in Makkah

Abu Bakr said: "I heard the Messenger of Allâh [pbuh] say: ‘A dead Prophet is buried where he dies.’ Ar-Raheeq al Makhtoom (The Sealed Nectar)

-some said to bury him in Madina
-some said to bury him in Jerusalem
-if it wasn’t for this hadith:
-how would we know where to bury him

IT IS HARAAM TO MARRY 2 SISTERS AND LIVE WITH THEM AT THE SAME TIME

Narrated Um Habiba: I said, "O Allah's Apostle! Marry my sister, the daughter of Abu Sufyan." He said, "Do you like that?" I said, "Yes, for even now I am not your only wife; and the most beloved person to share the good with me is my sister." The Prophet said, "But that is not lawful for me (i.e., to be married to two sisters at a time.)" I said, "O Allah's Apostle! By Allah, we have heard that you want to marry Durra, the daughter of Abu Salama." He said, "You mean the daughter of Um Salama?" I said, "Yes." He said, "By Allah ! Even if she were not my stepdaughter, she would not be lawful for me to marry, for she is my foster niece, for Thuwaiba has suckled me and Abu Salama; so you should neither present your daughters, nor your sisters to me." [ Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 43 ]


-it is haraam for a man to marry his niece and his aunt and live with them
-this is known in hadith and not in Qur'an

Reported by 'Ali (ra), that the Prophet (saws) took some silk in his right hand and some gold in his left hand and then he said, "These two are haram for the males among my followers." (Abu Dawud 4046, Tirmidhi 1642, An-Nasai 5170)

Prophet (peace be on him) say, "Do not wear silk, for those who wear it in this life shall not wear it in the Hereafter." (Reported by al-Bukhari and Muslim. A Similar hadith is reported by them on the authority of Anas.) On another occasion, referring to a silken garment, he said, "This is the dress of a man who has no character.'' (Reported by al-Bukhari and Muslim.)

GOLD & SILK WERE BOTH MADE HARAAM IN HADITH

-these were made haraam in hadith and not in Qur'an
-gold is haraam for men but halal for women; we know this from hadith, nor Qur’an

WHEN UMAR CONQUERED PERSIA, HE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THEM, THEREFORE ABDUR RAHMAN IBN 'AWF TOLD HIM TO CHARGE THEM (FIREWORSHIPPERS) JIZYA AS THEY CHARGE THE JEWS & CHRISTIANS

...'Umar did not take the Jizya from the Magian infidels till 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf testified that Allah's Apostle had taken the Jizya from the Magians of Hajar. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 53, Hadith #384]

Abu Huraira reported that a man asked the Prophet (pbuh): "we travel in the sea and we carry with us little water. If we used it for wudu then we would be suffering thirst! so should we still use this water for wudu ? The Prophet (pbuh) ) replied: Its [sea] water is pure and its dead meat [fish and whatever lives in sea and die by leaving it] is Halal to eat" Ref: Sunan Al-Tirmithi: 69

EVERYTHING IN THAT LIVES IN THE SEA IS HALAL TO EAT

-even crabs and lobsters
-even sharks and whales

"Perform ablution after eating camel meat, and do not perform ablution after eating goat." [At Tirmidhi No.21 and Abu Dawud No.184]

WHEN WE EAT THE CAMEL'S MEAT, WUDHU IS BROKEN


-Hanafis don’t agree with it but the text is clear
-we are not to make Ijtihad when the text is clear

Narrated By Jabir bin Abdullah: On the day of Khaibar, Allah's Apostle forbade the eating of donkey meat and allowed the eating of horse meat. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 5, Book 59, Hadith #530]

It was narrated that Asma’ bint Abi Bakr (ra) said: At the time of the Prophet (saws) we slaughtered a horse and ate it. [Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5191; Muslim, 1942]

IT IS HALAL FOR US TO EAT HORSE MEAT

-Asma cooked horse meat and served it to Rasulallah
-donkey meat is haraam whereas horse meat is halal

WHEN YOU FAST IN RAMADAN, YOU PAY SADAQAT AL FITR
-we must make it before the Imam goes on the mimbar on Eid
-it is Fard for us to pay it

And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad (SAWS) gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it), and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. (Al-Hashr 59:7)

ALLAH said in Surah 59: , we are to take whatsoever Rasulallah
-gave us and to abstain from whatever he forbade us

And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad (SAWS) the reminder and the advice (the Qur'an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. (An-Nahl 16:44)

Rasulallah was sent to make things clear to us

-he was sent us to explain everything
-ALLAH told us to pray 5 times a day but HE did not tell how to pray
-how did the Parvezis figure out how many Rakat each Salah has?
-how did they know the details about each Salah?
-their arguments are weak
-they are Zindeeq
-they are liars, Munafiqeen, and a waste of space

Say (O Muhammad (SAWS) to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur'an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Aali Imran 3:31)

IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER, YOU WOULD BELIEVE IN QUR'AN AND

-consequently believe in Hadith because the Qur'an commands us to believe in it

THE EVIL CONSEQUENCES OF REJECTING AHADITH
-ALLAH sent Rasulallah to explain the Qur'an to us
-they have reduced Islam to Christianity
-they have many denominations
-they have opened the doors of Tafsir to every Tom, Dick, and Harry
-they opened the doors to people with disease in their hearts
-Christianity means "Total Chaos"
-they have allowed anyone to interpret Qur'an according to their own desires
-when you take away Ahadith to explain al-Qur'an,
-you have reduced Islam to Christianity
-when every Tom, Dick, and Harry can give Tafsir
-according to their evil & corrupted desires
-and not according to Rasulallah

Hadith-free Islam
-they have reduced Islam to Christianity
-that is their aim
-this will lead us to have 1000s of Masjid with 1000s of interpretations of Islam

BY REJECTING AHADITH, THIS WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD PEOPLE TO REJECT RASULALLAH
-Murshid = the guide for us
-Muhammad (SAWS) will no longer be a Murshid (the guide for us)

And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad (SAWS) the reminder and the advice (the Qur'an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. (An-Nahl 16:44)

-when you reject Hadith, you will reject Muhammad (SAWS),
-and when you reject Muhammad (SAWS), you will reject ALLAH

A PARVEZI IS A KAAFIR
-500 Ulama made Takfir on Ghulam Parvezi
-in India because of his stance on Ahadith

Verily, those who disbelieve in Allah and His Messengers and wish to make distinction between Allah and His Messengers (by believing in Allah and disbelieving in His Messengers) saying, "We believe in some but reject others," and wish to adopt a way in between. (An-Nisa 4:150)

All this came about due to the hadith that says Aisha married Rasulallah at the age of 9

-he found out this hadith was weak
-if one hadith is weak, this doesn’t mean every single hadith is the same
-he painted all the Ahadith with the same brush
-in his anger and his rage, he pronounced all the Ahadith unauthentic and fabricated
-one hadith being weak does not make all the Ahadith weak
-this is extremism

Allahu alam
