الجواب حامدا و مصلیا
Let it be known that according to the unanimous opinion of the Ummath e Muslima, the confident source after Qur’an e Kareem in constructing Islamic Law and Shar’i Rulings is Ahadees e Mubaraka, and, on the contrary, as a matter of fact, Qur’an e Kareem can neither be explained as it is actually is, and nor is it possible to practise accordingly without the help of Ahadees e Mubaraka. In other words, refutation of Ahadees in fact is refutation of Qur’an e Kareem itself which is manifest misguidance and going astray.
As for Ghulam Ahmed Pervez and his followers, they refute Ahadees from one side and on the other side they present incorrect explanations and wrong elucidations on most of the injunctions of Qur’an Shareef such as Namaz, Saum, Haj etc. etc., in such a way that falls in the category of distorting Qur’an Shareef. Therefore, Ghulam Ahmed Pervez and his followers are out of the fold of Islam due to their incorrect doctrines and perceptions.
