Hadeeth Pt2

 
The Arabic word HADEETH has its origins in the word HADATHA which means - amongst other things -
to happen
occur
take place
come to pass.

Hadeeth - plural Ahadeeth - means
speech
chat
talk
report
account
narrative
discussion
conversation
etc.


This form of the word is repeated in Al-Qur'an in several different places. All referring to the Word/Speech of Allah SWT.

Surah 4 An-Nisaa, Verse 87
Allah - Save Whom there is no deity - of a surety He will gather you all together on the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt. And whose Word (Hadeeth) can be truer than Allah's?

Surah 31 Luqman, Verse 6
But among men there is many a one that prefers a mere play with words (Hadeeth) so as to lead (those) without astray from the Path of Allah, and to turn it to ridicule: for such there is shameful suffering in store.

Surah 33 Al-Ahzab, Verse 53
O Ye who believe! Enter not the dwellings of the Prophet for a meal without waiting for the proper time, unless permission be granted you. But if ye are invited, enter, and, when your meal is ended, then disperse. Linger not for Hadeeth. Lo! that would cause annoyance to the Prophet, and he would be shy of (asking) you to go, but Allah is not shy of the truth. And when ye ask of them (the wives of the Prophet) anything, ask it of them from behind a curtain. That is purer for your hearts and for their hearts. And it is not for you to cause annoyance to the messenger of Allah, nor that ye should ever marry his wives after him. Lo! that in Allah's sight would be an enormity.

Surah 39 Az-Zumar, Verse 23
Allah bestows from on high the best of all teachings (Hadeeth) in the shape of a Divine Writ fully consistent within itself, repeating each statement (of the truth) in manifold forms - whereat shiver the skins of all those who of their Sustainer stand in awe: in the end their skins and hearts do soften at the remembrance of (the Grace of) Allah..
Such is Allah's Guidance: HE Guides therewith him that wills (to be guided) whereas he whom Allah lets go astray can never find any guide.

Surah 45 Al-Jaathiyah, Verse 6
These Messages of Allah do WE convey to you, setting forth the truth. In what other tiding (Hadeeth) if not in Allah's Messages will they, then, believe?

Surah 77 Al-Mursalaat, Verse 50
In what other tiding (Hadeeth) then, will they, after this, believe?


The Hadeeth Compilations contain what are said to be the sayings and doings of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) In addition, there are historical accounts of the advent of the Prophet, of the conditions prevailing at the time he began to convey the Message of Islam, of his compatriots and Companions, his family and followers.

These accounts of what the Prophet is reported to have said and done must find supporting/corroborating evidence in Al-Qur'an. The latter should at all times be employed as Al-Furqaan - The Criterion and Standard by which believers distinguish between true/false, good/bad, right/wrong. The most authoritative and authentic account of the life of the Prophet is to be found ONLY in Al-Qur'an. We must bear in mind that without proper evidence a report is just that - a report. Such hearsay testimony is never accepted in any court of law, and certainly not in the Court of Allah SWT, where only the truth suffices.

The many Hadeeth Compilations can often be contradictory. They conflict not only with the Text of Al-Qur'an, but they also contradict each other. At the same time, the different Sunni/Shi'aa Hadeeth differ in many respects from each other. The sheer volume of literature which constitutes these Compilations is huge.

In order not to complicate a religion which is both simple and easy, the best way to understand Al-Islam is to remain true to Al-Qur'an. Muslims must ensure that they are not amongst those who have "discarded" Al-Qur'an, as the Prophet states in Surah 25 Al-Furqaan, Verse 30.
