caution about some sites

Recently I posted some links and images to click on, with a caution comment. I am disturbed at the numerous sites that have sprung up about the Quran. Many of these are from Hadith-rejectors, innovators, false prophets, or those who disbelieve in Allah (swt) or any Prophet. At best they regard the last Prophet Muhammad (saw) as just a Messenger whose task it was to deliver the message and disappear. This approach is very far from the truth.

Some of these sites even carry authentic material and reference to Saheeh AHadeeth to hoodwink Muslims (and non-Muslims). Some, like the Qadianis, refuse to accept Muhammad (saw) as the last Prophet. Some say the do accept, but try to sneak in their distorted views.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) did not just bring the message. It was also his task to amplify, explain and to show practically what the message was. This is clearly written in the Quran. Hence, ignoring the Hadith (or Sunnah) will make us go astray. If one uses these sites, it must be with care, for they subtly bring in their twisted meanings.

caution: net and literature, permanent page

The Sunnah was practiced by Companions of the Prophet (saw) and those who came after. The traditions began to be compiled even in the time of the Prophet (saw) and under his later orders when there was no longer a chance of mixing his word with that of Allah (swt).

The Muhaddetheen collected AHadeeth traveling far and wide. These were sifted through painstaking  methods ascertaining the accuracy of the text as well as the authenticity of the transmitters of Hadith. These are now compiled as Sahih AHadeeth.

The approach of the so-called Quranites, 19'ers, submitters, onlyGod, free minds, Qadianis, and others is inviting mankind to Hell. So why have I given their links?

It is because some of their work is extensive (like roots). These are to be used with utmost caution though. There is a strong likelihood of misinformation in their works. I have moved these to the bottom of the page, and Allah willing, I shall move all such posts under a generic one, removing the links when I find authentic works based on the Quran and Saheeh AHadeeth.
