The long reach of the hadithist


Quranists oppose the fact that Islam has been changed with the institutionalisation of hadith. However, lets not forget one thing. Merely removing hadith from our thoughts will not help us much if when reading Quran, we are still reading what is essentially hadith-based translations.

Quranic Fundamentalists tend to do this a lot (strangely, I must say, quranic fundamentalism seems to be inextricably linked with uncritical acceptance of translations). It’s sad, really. They oppose the use of hadith yet inadvertently use it themselves.

The only way is to analyse Quranic words and figure out their meanings from the Quran itself. Chuck out ‘popular translations’.
