And when it is said to them, "Follow what Allah has revealed," they say, "Rather, we will follow that which we found our fathers doing." Even though their fathers understood nothing, nor were they guided? Quran 2:170
And what was revealed from ALLAH?
Allah has revealed the best Hadith (statements of Deen) its parts resembling each other a Book with similar passages which refer to each other and make the skins of those who fear their Lord shiver. Then their skins and hearts incline to the remembrance of God. This is the guidance of God. He guides whomever He wants. No one can guide those whom God has caused to go astray. Quran 39:23
There was certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding. Never was the Qur'an a Hadith invented, but a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of all things (regarding Deen) and guidance and mercy for a people who believe. Quran 12:111
