Divine Guidance: Unlocking the Wisdom of Quran and Hadith

Ebrahim Essa

The Quran, glorified as the greatest literary work in Muslim history have for over fourteen hundred years provided a supreme foundation of Divine guidance to the believers. The Hadith along with the Quran as a source of knowledge plays an important role in shaping Islamic practise.

In this enlightening guide, we explore the elaborate relationship between the Quran and Hadith, addressing the questions that have confused generations of Muslims.

Hadith: The Sunnah's Carrier

Traditional Muslims regard Hadith as an accurate historical source preserving the sayings, actions and approvals of the Prophet (ﷺ). These reports, transmitted through a chain of narrators offer practical guidance in the form of the Sunnah of the Prophet (ﷺ).

Hadith is however totally rejected by some Quranist advocating for a Quran-centric approach. They argue that the Quran is pure and free from any distortions.

The Controversy Surrounding Hadith

Western scholars, including critical minded Muslims engage in meticulous analysis of Hadith texts. They question the reliability of these reports, emphasising that they cannot be reliably traced back to the Prophet's (ﷺ) literal words

The differing opinions on the necessity and reliability of Hadith have led to confusion among believers. Why do we need Hadith when we have the Quran? How do we reconcile Hadith that contradicts Quranic Verses?

Exploring Essential Questions

Revelation Beyond the Quran: Did the Prophet (ﷺ) receive revelations beyond the Quranic verses? We explore instances where the Quran and Hadith sheds light on this matter.

Contradictions and Explanation: What happens when a Hadith appears to contradict a Quranic verse? We examine Quranic and Hadith texts to explain these contradictions.

Prophets and Messengers: What is the difference between Prophets and Messengers. Is every Prophet also a Messenger? Does the Quran tell us that Muhammad (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is last Prophet and final Messenger? We explore Quranic verses and Hadith narratives that address these crucial questions.

The Torah and Gospel in the Quran: Why does the Quran mention earlier scriptures? We explore the importance of these references and their role in reinforcing the continuity of divine guidance.

Through meticulous citation of Quranic verses and Hadith text, this book seeks to illuminate the interchange between these two sources. Whether you are a curious seeker, a Muslim or a Revert, "Divine Guidance: Unlocking the Wisdom of Quran and Hadith" provides clarity, insight, sheds light on misconceptions, and invites you to explore the rich tapestry of Islamic knowledge.
