Rejecting abrogated Surahs

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: What is the ruling on a Muslim who categorically denies the abrogated Surahs, Al Kahl and Al Hafd? They reject them as never being revealed upon our beloved prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). They also deny that they meet the Quranic Arabic criteria and say they are poor in literary. Audhubillah min al shaitan nir rajeem!


A: These are from the khabarul aahaad. So the rejecting of khabarul aahaad does not amount to kufr, although it will be an act of fisq and fujoor.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
