Ruling about Hadith Rejecter

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai

Q.) What is the ruling about the person who denies the hadith and sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam and says that the only authentic source is Qur’an. How should a community deal with him? Is it fair to call him Kafir even though he performs salat in public?

What about the person who considers Ahmed Ali Qadiani (person who claimed to be a prophet) as Muslim? [Muhammad Mansoori]

A.) In principle, a person who denies Ahadith is a Fasiq (transgressor). A Qadiani as well as any person believing in Ahmad Ali Qadiani as a Muslim is also not a Muslim. And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
