I had to start this thread because there seems to be a growing hatred of Muslims in the west. Today I saw the results of a survey here in the U.S.
that Muslims are now more disliked then even atheists. I went on a journey(actually about a month ago) to see if what Muslims are doing in the world
is even in the Quran. The results surprised me. There is a small but growing number of people that are rejecting the hadiths and the sunna. These
people believe that these other books have corrupted Islam and are making Islam the violent, intolerant religion it is today. They don't regard them
as true Muslims.
According to them , the prophet forbid any one writing about him or his sayings. He wanted them to follow the Quran only and nothing else. So for the
first 200 plus years of Islam all hadiths were banned. BTW none of these hadiths were written by Arabs but by the defeated Persians. Food for thought
There are 4 main hadith writers, most popular being bukhari and muslim. According to hadith believers(virtually all Muslims) these guys somehow 200
plus years after the Prophet's death used some scientific method to decide which hadith were genuine.
According to Quranists, if Muslims actually bothered to read the hadiths they would be shocked at how much they insult the prophet. They make him
sound like a pedo, a violent man, a man that told adult women to suckle adult men. The list goes on and on.
Quran only Muslims site major differences between the Quran and hadiths. Some examples.
For an apostate, the hadiths sanction death. Quran firstly says" there is no compulsion in religion", plus god says I reserved punishment for
apostates in the after life. No where does it tell followers to kill them. Quite a difference there.
Women's dress: Hadith followers say you have to cover up, burkha, hijab whatever. Quran says cover your bosoms and private parts. It does not mention
covering your hair or face.
Marriage: Hadith followers( looks like young little girls are ok). Quran says only if they are of a maturity that they are capable of making decisions
on their property.
Quran also says fight aggressors but end it if there is no more aggressions. It says god does not like aggressors. Looks like the hadith followers did
not get that message.
There are so many examples I could, but I will give you youtube links for a better explanation. If you have an open mind, you will truly scratch your
head as to why Muslims abandoned the Quran and started looking to hadiths as a source.
There are many more. Just go to youtube and put Quranists in your search.
