The Importance of the Sunnah of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam

How does one's Deen remain intact after denying or sneering at or poking fun at any matter about which Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) had given a clear, categorical, unambiguous decision? This has been answered by the Qur'aan itself in not one but on numerous occasions. The Qur'aan states in one place:

“Nay, by your Lord, they do not believe until they make you (0 Muhammad and in your absence your Shariah) the judge of that which is in dispute between them, and then they do not find within themselves dislike for that which you decide and submit with full submission.” (IV v 65)

In as many Hadeeth we get the words of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam): “None of you is a believer until such time that the desires of his heart is not subjected to that (Shariah) which I brought.”

Allah Ta'aala says: “Say (0 Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) f you love Allah Ta'aala, then follow my commands (for I have been sent especially for this purpose). Verily Allah Ta'aala is the Forgiver, the Merciful. Say: Obey Allah Ta'aala and the Rasul (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). But if they turn away, then know that Allah Ta'aala does not love the unbelievers.” (III v 31,32)

Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Let not anyone of you be found sitting on his sofa, reclining on cushions, who, when one of my commands will be brought to him of what I commanded or prohibited, and will say: 'We do not know (about that). We shall only follow that which we found in the Book of Allah Ta'aala. (Ahmed, Abu Dawood)

This same contents has been mentioned in many Hadeeth, all of which refute the opinion and view of those people who say that it is sufficient to follow the Holy Qur'aan alone.

Another Hadeeth says: "I have been presented with the Holy Qur'aan as well as other commandments like it. Soon such a time will dawn when a man fully filled (with food and drink) reclining on his sofa, will say: "To act upon the book of Allah Ta'aala suffices. Hold onto it. Whatever has been made lawful therein, consider to be lawful and whatever has been made unlawful therein, consider unlawful. In truth, that made unlawful by the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) is as unlawful as that declared unlawful by Allah.‟ (Mishkaat)

In these Hadeeth there is mention made of men filled (with food and drink) and reclining on their comfortable sofas. This is an indication of wealth and such foolish sayings come only from such wealthy persons. It is strange that when a person possesses some wealth, he feels he is in a position to put forth suggestions to improve the Deen. Those who are poor do not find such thoughts crossing their minds. With the poor the fear of Allah Ta'aala is real.

Someone asked Sayyidina Ibn Umar (Radiallahu anhu): “In the Quran there are commands about Salaah to be performed while in residence at home and about Salaah during times of fear. But there is no mention of Salaah to be performed on a journey. How is that?”

He replied: “0 my nephew! Allah Ta'aala verily sent Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) to us as his Messenger. We did not know anything. Hence we perform only that which we saw him doing.” (Shifa)

Sayyidina Umar (Radiallahu anhu) said: “People will argue with you about the verses of the Qur'aan. Answer them with Hadeeth because those who are in possession of knowledge of Hadeeth are more acquainted with (the meaning of) the Book of Allah Ta'aala.” (Shifa)

Al-Eti'daal Fe Maraatibur-Rijaal” by Sheikh-ul-Hadith, Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhalwi R.A., Page 173 - 175 - Published by Darul Uloom Zakariyya.) To be continued Insha-Allah.
