Those Who Claim They Follow Only the Quran

This is an excerpt of Shaikh Muhammad Amaan al Jaamee’s explanation of Shaikh Uthaymeen’s Book Al Qawaa’id al Muthlaa… (Exemplary Principles)…Taken from tape 4, starting at 13:521. Underlined speech is from the text of Shaikh Uthaymeen’s book2.

 

Arabic text of Shaikh Muhammad Amaan al Jaamee’s speech in this file:

Quraniyyoon Arabic quote

 

 

Shaikh Uthaymeen said (translated):

 

And where is the Imaan in the Messenger – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – who was entrusted with the Quran – for the one who doesn’t accept what is from his Sunnah

 

 

 

Shaikh Muhammad Amaan al Jaamee explained:

 

And he rejects that and says: We are sufficed with the Quran. What is in the Book of Allaah, we accept. And what is in the Sunnah, we reject. This one claims that he is a Qur’aanee – from those who believe in the Quran only.

 

These people disbelieve in the Quran without realizing it. Whoever disbelieves in the Sunnah has indeed disbelieved in the Quran. Because the Quran is that which commands to follow the Sunnah.3 And because the Quran mentions many of the rulings in a general way which are explained in detail in the Sunnah.

 

And some of the Attributes of Allaah, The Most High, have come in the Sunnah and they are not in the Quran. Separating the Book from the Sunnah and claiming Imaan in the Quran and rejecting the Sunnah is futility (useless). On top of that, it is disbelief in both of them.

 

The Shaikh (Uthaymeen) – (we ask that) Allaah bestow mercy upon us and upon him – said:

 

Allaah, The Most High, said:

 

وَنَزَّلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ تِبْيَانًا لِّكُلِّ شَيْءٍ

 

And We have sent down to you the Book (i.e. the Qur’an) as an explanation (tibyaan) for everything…” (16:89)

 

And from what is known

 

(Shaikh al Jaamee): to the students of knowledge

 

is that many of the knowledge-based sharee’ah matters

 

(Shaikh al Jaamee): from that is the Names and Attributes – this is called: “knowledge-based”

 

and the action-based matters –

 

(Shaikh al Jaamee): the rulings

 

their explanations come in the Sunnah

 

(Shaikh al Jaamee): many of them are explained in the Sunnah

 

So their explanations in the Sunnah are from the explanation (mentioned in) the Quran (“tibyaan” as mentioned in the verse 16:89 above)

 

(Shaikh al Jaamee): Allaah, The Most High, said:

 

أقيموا الصلاة

 

Establish the salaah”4

 

How do you establish the salaah with the Book (the Quran) only, when you have disbelieved in the Sunnah? How do you purify yourself ? And these details from the actions of the salaah – from the takbeer (to begin the salaah) to the tasleem (to end the salaah) – from where do you know how to do these things?

 

When you have left off the Sunnah, that means that you leave off the salaah.

 

What verse from the Quran do you use to pray? With this general verse:

 

أقيموا الصلاة

 

Establish the salaah”?

 

And also:

 

ءاتوا الزكاة

 

Give the zakaah” (2:110)

 

From where (do you know how to do this)?? This tremendous command: The Hajj. The details and actions of Hajj – are they not from the Sunnah? Most of our actions are in the Sunnah. The Quran has placed a general outline, and the Sunnah has explained it. The place of return is to Allaah. Because the Sunnah5 is from Allaah…

Is there sin on the one who does not reject backbiting that takes place in her presence?

August 17, 2012

Translated from: http://www.binbaz.org.sa/mat/9263

Question: I am a woman who, because of the Bounty and Favor Allah bestows upon me, performs the deeds made obligatory by her Lord.  And I do whatever (acts) I am able from the Sunnah.  But I found a problem when sitting with the women.  We all know what happens in the sittings of women from backbiting and tale-carrying.  Sometimes the circumstances of my home life make it necessary to sit with them.  So sometimes you see me and I am not pleased with their backbiting and tale-carrying among themselves.  And I advise them.  But sometimes either I forget or I find I am unable to (advise), or I am tired from giving so much advice so I am quiet – I don’t participate, but I don’t reject (their actions).  So is there a sin upon me for that?

 

Answer (Shaikh Bin Baz): Yes, there is a sin upon you. When you sit with them and do not reject (their actions) there is a sin on you.  Stand up to them.  Reject their backbiting and tale-carrying and other than that from sins.  So if they respond and obey then all the praise and thanks are for Allah, the objective has been achieved.  But if they refuse and continue then leave them.  Allah, Lofty and Exalted is He, says (translated): “…then after the remembrance, do not sit with the people who are wrongdoers.” (6:68)

What is meant is that He, Lofty and Exalted is He, has commanded the one who sits with the people, then they speak vain speech about falsehood, that (such a one) gets up and leaves them if they do not obey.  So in short, it is upon you to reject the munkar (those evil deeds which should be rejected), and that you order with the good. So if the people respond and obey then all the praises and thanks are for Allah. And if they do not, then leave that place due to His – and He is Perfect – saying (translated): “…then after the remembrance, do not sit with the people who are wrongdoers.” (6:68)”

Everyone’s statement will be accepted or rejected except…

قَالَ الإِمَامُ مَالِك

Imam Maalik (Allah bestow mercy upon him) said:

كُلُّ كَلَامٍ فِيْهِ مَقْبُوْلٌ وَ مَرْدُوْدٌ إِلّا كَلَامُ صَاحِبِ هَذا القَبْرِ

Every statement will either be accepted (when it is in agreement with the Quran and Sunnah on the understanding of the Salaf) or rejected (when it opposes that) except for the speech of the inhabitant of this grave (of the Prophet Muhammad – sallallahu alayhe wa sallam – since he was protected by Allah from making mistakes in the religion, his speech is never rejected)
