"GOD is the light of the heavens and the earth..." (24:35)
As per my research the only thing prophet left was the quraan. All the rest are just conjectures created by Muslims after the prophet passed away.
Totally agree with you...
Wsalaam, to help this discussion along, thought would share the following:
It is the alleged final sermon (Khutba) of the Prophet (Khutbat Al-Wadaa’). This great and historic event is reported in many important books of hadith, including Muslim, Muwatta, Ibn Majah, Abu Dawud, Ahmed Ibn Hanbal. The big problem is: these books report three vastly different doctrines from this historic sermon which was witnessed by 100,000 witnesses (most hadiths were supposedly witnessed by 1 or 2 people).
In fact, the main topic in that all-important sermon gives three contradicting commandments. Here is what the prophet allegedly said:
1) “I am leaving for you two things that you must uphold, the Quran and my Sunnah” (According to Muwatta 46/3).
2) “I am leaving for you the Quran and my relatives (Ahl Al- Bayt)” (According to Muslim 44/4, Nu 2408; Ibn Hanbal 4/366; Darimi 23/1, Nu 3319).
3) “I am leaving for you the Quran; you shall uphold it” (According to Muslim 15/19, Nu 1218; Ibn Majah 25/84, Nu 3074; Abu Dawud 11/56, Nu 1905).
As you see, the LAST words of the LAST sermon of the LAST prophet which had been witnessed by the greatest number of his friends, have been reported in three different versions.
a) What did the prophet leave for us according to your most authentic hadith? Which one of the three reports is correct?
b) What did the prophet leave for us according to the best hadith, i.e., the Quran? (6:19,38,114; 5:48-49; 12:111; 39:23).
c) How can we trust those hadith books which can change the most important words, though witnessed by thousands of people? Which hadith can we trust beside the Quran(45:6)?
Firstly we have to understand if prophet was authorised to leave us any will. In the holy quraan , there is no where it says that he should leave behind anyone to continue the mission of his as a messenger. There is nothing in quraan that shows that Allah wanted to continue this message and or decode the message. Quraan is very clear with its message and says many place what is in quraan is enough and Allah does not want to make it hard for people.
It’s very sad that after the prophet passed away there was chaos within the people (Muslims). There were some who were the relatives and some were close friends of prophets.
If one reads quraan critically, you will find “Islam” is not a religion. There is only one religion Allah has sent through various prophets. And that religion is creed of Abraham. Which also prophet Muhammad was asked to follow. The religion was started with prophet Abraham and ended with prophet Muhammad. Only one religion and those who follow are called “Muslims” .
All these religion which are named , Jews , Christians and zohrastians and others are all from Abrahamic faith. What happened after prophet passed away was they all made them into sects through personal preferences and conjectures. We read so many Hadiths and they eventually they all contradict each other or end up contradicting the holy quraan. It’s best to adhere to the holy quraan and leave all this sectarian biases away.
Just sharing my thoughts 🙏
May Allah guide all towards the truth inshallah
Salaam, I am not sure if this is supposed to be a question, are you questioning the authenticity of the hadith?
