Perfect places for Allah to mention the sunnah
« on: June 27, 2014, 05:12:38 PM »
One of the biggest arguments for Quran only Islam is the fact that it has been made plain in the Quran that it's verses are the only verses to be believed in:

[Quran 45:6] These are the verses of Allah which We recite to you in truth. Then in what statement after Allah and His verses will they believe?

If I write a book and say "These are my sentences which I write to you, do not believe in anything besides my sentences", then I would be CLEAR that the sentences in MY book are the only things to be followed. The above verse uses the word "these" meaning these Quranic verses are the only statement pertaining to Islam that we could believe!

Now sunni and shia muslims say, "oh, when Allah says that these Quranic verses are all that we can believe in, he does not really mean that these are the only verses we can believe in". Well then, let me ask you this. If you were Allah and you wanted to make it clearer that the Quran;s verses are all that we could follow, how would you write this verse differently? How would you better say that these verses are all that we could believe in?

Now that (above) is the strongest argument for Quran-Only Islam! It has been made plain, you cannot hide behind the fact that the Quran makes it clear that you will only follow the verses that are in the Quran.

Now the second strongest argument for Quran-only Islam is that Allah has not mentioned in the Quran the sunnah when he could have. Here is the perfect verse to talk about the sunnah:

Say (O Muhammad), "What is the greatest testimony?" Say, "God is witness between me and you that this Quran has been inspired to me to warn you with it and whomever it reaches." 6:19

This testimony which God describes as "Akbar Shahada" (the Greatest Testimony) commands Muhammad to testify that He received the Quran from God. This testimony speaks of only one revelation received by Muhammad from God which is the Quran. If Muhammad truly received other revelations from God (other than the Quran), would we not find any mention of it in the Quran? Would God hide the fact that He gave Muhammad a revelation independent of the Quran and then command us to obey it?

Wouldn't this verse be the perfect place to mention the other alleged revelation that Muhammad received for mankind?

In the next post, I will post MANY verses that are great places for Allah to even mention the sunnah or at least hint at it.

The format of this will be many quranic verses. I will insert brackets in the places that Allah could have even mentioned the sunnah

Perfect places for Allah to mention the Sunnah:

I have shown the first verse:

Say (O Muhammad), "What is the greatest testimony?" Say, "God is witness between me and you that this Quran [And sunnah] has been inspired to me to warn you with it and whomever it reaches." 6:19

Many more to come:

[4:82] Then do they not reflect upon the Qur'an [and sunnah]? If it had been from [any] other than Allah , they would have found within it much contradiction

[12.2] Surely We have revealed it-- an Arabic Quran [and sunnah]-- that you may understand.

[12.3] We narrate to you the best of narratives, by Our revealing to you this Quran [and sunnah], though before this you were certainly one of those who did not know.

[17.82] And We reveal of the Quran [and sunnah] that which is a healing and a mercy to the believers, and it adds only to the perdition of the unjust.

[18.54] And certainly We have explained in this Quran [and sunnah] every kind of example, and man is most of all given to contention.

[20.2] We have not revealed the Quran [and sunnah] to you that you may be unsuccessful.

[20.113] And thus have We sent it down an Arabic Quran [and sunnah] , and have distinctly set forth therein of threats that they may guard (against evil) or that it may produce a reminder for them.

[20.114] Supremely exalted is therefore Allah, the King, the Truth, and do not make haste with the Quran [and sunnah] before its revelation is made complete to you and say: O my Lord ! increase me in knowledge.

25.30] And the Apostle cried out: O my Lord! surely my people have treated this Quran [and sunnah] as a forsaken thing.

[25.32] And those who disbelieve say: Why has not the Quran [and sunnah] been revealed to him all at once? Thus, that We may strengthen your heart by it and We have arranged it well in arranging.

[27.6] And most surely you are made to receive the Quran [and sunnah] from the Wise, the Knowing God.

I was planning on doing more verses as there are a ton more, but you get the idea. If Allah wanted to say that there was another source of law besides the Quran he would not have:

1.) Stated that we can only believe in the verses in the Quran
2.) Not even hint at this other source of law
