Rejecting the Hadith

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I am working in Birmingham city university and some of my Muslim colleagues due to spending most of his time around non believers are a bit away from deen. He has this objection against hadith that we should just follow the Quran as its authentic and not Hadith. I do try explain him that without hadith one cannot understand Islam. Can you please help with it as you can provide me some verses from Quran so that I can relate it to him and any other means to make him understand.


A: Don’t waste your time. People who don’t believe in the hadeeth are not muslims.

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