You're right dear yeezevee...yeezevee wrote:The Cat may have his own Cat plans. May be he has the idea of moving the political power of Islam which he thinks is in the hands of Hadith preaching/following Muslims...
Muslims that are Quran only and sufi like ..sing songs and spend time type of Muslims which The Cat may think that are harmless to Muslim folks and rest of the humanity. Off course The Cat clearly knows Islam as preached in Hadith and some of it is in Quran is not good to humanity..
Correct me if I am wrong The Cat..

My point is to negate the idolatrous importance given to Muhammad. The point of SNB is to uphold this importance,
giving legitimacy to the hadiths' Islam! I'm at awe to understand how this silliness has made it unto some members!
This is simply a crazy, deluded, self-defeating position. If the Koran is 'unreadable' without the hadiths, let it be!
One thing the hadiths took away is the Ijtihad tradition within Islam.

We can see how Ijtihad is related to Jihad. It is opposed to taqliq or imitation ! So whenever Jihad is written, it should be understood as in connection with Ijtihad, personal struggle. We can see how then Jihad, the 6th pillar of Islam, becomes totally different. That must be why al-Ghazali fought for the Ijtihad suppression and the enforcement of imitation (taqliq), that is blind faith. And IMITATION is the sine qua none of the hadiths...Ijtihad (Arabic: اجتهاد, ’iğtihād) is a technical term of Islamic law that describes the process of making a legal decision by independent interpretation of the legal sources, the Qur'an and the Sunnah. The opposite of ijtihad is taqlid, Arabic for "imitation".
Generally, a Mujtahid (Arabic: مجتهد, ’muğtahid) is an educated Muslim who makes up his own ruling on the permissibility of an Islamic law but only for himself, by rejecting the authority of the Ulema.
The word derives from the three-letter Arabic verbal root of ج-ﻫ-د j-h-d (jahada, "struggle"), the same root as that of jihad; the <t> is inserted because the word is a derived stem VIII verb. The shared etymology is worth noting, as both words touch on the concepts of struggle or effort.
In the case of form VIII verbs, this means to "struggle with oneself", as through deep thought. Ijtihad is a method of legal reasoning that does not rely on the traditional schools of jurisprudence (madhabs).
