Holding Fast To The Qur'an And Sunnah

Take Your Beliefs From The Quran And Sunnah

Narrated Tariq bin Shihab:A Jew said to 'Umar, "O Chief of the Believers, if this verse: 'This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favors upon you, and have chosen for you, Is­lam as your religion.' (5.3) had been revealed upon us, we would have taken that day as an 'Id (festi­val) day." 'Umar said, "I know def­initely on what day this Verse was revealed; it was revealed on the day of 'Arafat, on a Friday."


Narrated Anas bin Malik:That he heard 'Umar speaking while standing on the pulpit of the Prophet in the morning (following the death of the Prophet), when the people had sworn allegiance to Abu Bakr. He said the Tashah-hud before Abu Bakr, and said, "Amma Ba'du (then after) Allah has chosen for His Apostle what is with Him (Paradise) rather than what is with you (the world). This is that Book (Qur an) with which Allah guided your Apostle, so stick to it, for then you will be guided on the right path as Allah guided His Apostle with it."

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: The Prophet embraced me and said, "O Allah! Teach him (the knowledge of) the Book (Qur an)."

Narrated Abal Minhal: AbuBarza said, "(O people!) Allah makes you self-sufficient or has raised you high with Islam and with Muhammad.

Narrated Abdullah bin Di­nar: Abdullah Bin Umar wrote to Abdul Malik bin Marwan, swearing allegiance to him: 'I swear allegiance to you in that I will listen and obey what is in ac­cordance with the Laws of Allah and the Tradition of His Apostle as much as I can.'

Narrated Said bin Al-Musaiyab: Abu Huraira said that Allah's Apostle said, "I have been sent with 'Jawami-al-Kalim ' (the shortest expression with the wid­est meaning) and have been made victorious with awe (cast in my enemy's hearts), and while I was sleeping, I saw that the keys of the treasures of the world were placed in my hand." Abu Huraira added: Allah's Apostle has gone, and you people are utilizing those treas­ures, or digging those treasures out." or said a similar sentence.

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "There was no prophet among the prophets but was given miracles because of which people had security or had belief, but what I was given was the Divine Inspiration which Allah re­vealed to me. So I hope that my fol­lowers will be more than those of any other prophet on the Day of Resurrection."

Narrated Abu Wail: I sat with Shaiba in this Mosque (Al-Masjid-Al-Haram), and he said, " Umar once sat beside me here as you are now sitting, and said, 'I feel like dis­tributing all the gold and silver that are in it (i.e., the Ka'ba) among the Muslims'. I said, 'You cannot do that.' 'Umar said, 'Why?' I said, 'Your two (previous) companions (the Prophet and Abu Bakr) did not do it. Umar said, 'They are the two persons whom one must follow.'" (See Hadith No. 664, Vol. 2)

Narrated Hudhaifa: Allah's Apostle said to us, "Honesty de­scended from the Heavens and set­tled in the roots of the hearts of men (faithful believers), and then the Qur an was revealed and the people read the Quran, (and learnt it from it) and also learnt it from the Sun­nah." Both Qur an and Sunna strengthened their (the faithful be­lievers') honesty.
