Sources of Islamic Law are only Holy Quran and Authentic Hadith

Sources of Islamic Aqeedah

Islamic Aqeedah will be derived only from two sources.
1.         The Holy Quran
2.         The Authentic Ahadith.

The issue about AHAD Narration in the matter of Aqeedah is an issue among scholars. Answer taken from here.

By Shaykh (Mufti) Muhammad Ibn Adam (HA)

Question: Could you please explain the difference between Ahad and Mutawatir Hadith? In particular, could you specify how many narrations make a Hadith Mutawatir? Also, are Ahad hadith taken into Aqeedah or only Mutawatir?
Answer: In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,
AHadith Mutawatir (continuous) is that which is related by whole groups of individuals from whole group of individuals, in multiple contiguous channels of transmission leading back to the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give peace), such as that the sheer number of separate channels at each stage of transmission is too many for it to be possible for all to have conspired to fabricate the Hadith.
As such, a Hadith is classified as Mutawatir only when it fulfils the following conditions:

1It is reported by such a large number of narrators that under normal circumstances it would be impossible for them to conspire a lie.

2Such a number exists throughout the chain of narration, i.e. from the beginning to the end.

3The reporters must base their report on sense perception, i.e. on something that is heard or seen.

4That the narration necessitates certain knowledge for the listener. (Ibn Hajr al-Asqalani, Sharh Nukhba al-Fikr, P.21).
Example of a Mutawatir Hadith is:
"Whoever lies about me deliberately must prepare himself for a place in the fire of Hell" (Sahih al-Bukhari & Sahih muslim).
Imam an-Nawawi (Allah have mercy on him) states that this narration has been narrated from approximately 200 Companions (Allah be pleased with them all) (Introduction to Sahih Muslim).
The Ahad or solitary Hadith (also known as Khabar al-Wahid) is the Hadith which fails to fulfil the requirement of Mutawatir. Ahad Hadith may be sound (sahih), good (hasan) or weak (Da'eef). It is a Hadith which does not impart positive knowledge on its own unless it is supported by extraneous or circumstantial evidence.
According to the majority of the four Sunni schools, acting upon Ahad is obligatory even if Ahad fails to engender positive knowledge provided certain conditions are met.
As far as establishing matters of Aqidah is concerned, the majority of the scholars are of the view that Ahad may not be relied upon as the basis of belief (aqidah), for matters of belief must be founded in certainty. Therefore, issues that revolve between belief (iman) and disbelief (kufr) can not be proven by Ahad narrations (Fawatih al-Rahmut, 2/136).
However, this refers to beliefs on which the actual Iman is dependent. As for Ahad narrations pertaining to subsidiary matters which are not essential to belief such as intercession (shafa'ah), etc..., these must be accepted and believed. Anyone who denies them is a sinner (fasiq) but not a Kafir, as he denies something which is not decisively proven (Abu Zahra, Usul al-Fiqh, P.85).
None of the previous scholars rejected any belief that was not established by Hadith Mutawatir. In fact, the great Hadith expert, Ibn Hajr al-Asqalani (Allah have mercy on him) states in his monumental commentary of Sahih al-Bukhari that, Ahad narrations are a source of evidence when the Ummah accepts it and acts upon it. It then has the power to become firm belief (Fath al-Bari, V.13, P.234).
Many beliefs have been established by Ahad narrations, yet they have not been rejected by the great scholars of this Ummah. Beliefs such as the intercession (shafa'ah) of the blessed Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give peace), descriptions of the angels, Jinn, Jannah, Jahannam, and much more.
In conclusion, matters of Aqidah can and have been proven by Ahad narrations and accepted by the majority of the Ummah. Yes, those integrals of Aqidah on which an individual's Iman depends can not be established by Ahad narrations. As a result, denying beliefs that are proven by Ahad will not constitute Kufr, rather a sin.
And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Following is not Source of Aqeedah.
1.               Weak Hadith.
2.               Any Analogy Logic, interpretation or  Ruling Whatsoever.
3.       Any interpretation based on any Story/story itself of Aulia Allah even if it is authentically proved.
4.        Any interpretation based on Kashf/Karamat or dream of Aulia Allah.

Few Important Points to be understood.
1.   For Fiqh (Islamic Law, Jurisprudence) There are four Sources of Islamic Law.
a)   The Holy Quran.
b)  The Authentic Ahadith.
c)   The Ijma (Consensus)
d)  The Qiyas (Analogy based on similar situation )
But in Aqeedah only the first two will be the source. Aqeedah matters are very clear unambiguous and unanimous among salafus salehin Scholars and Imams.Whereas is Fiqh (Islamic Law) there could be difference of opinion among Scholars as it happened even within the the companions (Sahanba Raziallahu Anhu)  

2.   The weak Hadith cannot be used for Aqeedah but will be used for Virtues (Fazail) and Targheeb o Tarheeb e.g for encouragement for a good work or warning for a bad action.
           Slafus Salehin Scholars including Imam Bukhari Rahimullah and Imam Ibne Taimmiya Rahimullah and others have used weak Hadith in Virtues (Fazail) e.g Imam Bukhari’s Al Adabul Mufrad Imam Ibne Taimmiya and but for Aqeedah the weak Hadith will not be used .But they will not be source of Islamic Aqeedah.

3.   Aqeedah can never be derived from any interpretation direct or implied based onKashf/Karamat or dream of Aulia AllahEven Rule of Fiqh (Jurisprudence) cannot be derived fromKashf/Karamat/Dreams.
Karamat or Kashf of the Aulia Allah (Friends of Allah) are possible and to be accepted even if it looks impossible because Karamat and Kashf are by Allah power and will and for Allah nothing is impossible. The base line is it should be authentically reported.  
          But as these are only historical facts. And for recording and narrating of historical fact there is no strict regulation (compared to very strict regulation is for Hadith) so proving any Karamat authenticity beyond doubt is very difficult.
       Similarly if any historical fact comes with reasonable evidence it can be acceptable and altogether rejecting it will not be acceptable to many.
In summary no one should stress much on for or against of any historical fact of Karamat or Kashf.
But the baseline is that Karamat/Kashf/Dreams of Aulia Allah will not be a source of Islamic Aqeedah to prove or disprove any belief of Islam.

Quran Ayats Bukhari Hadith on telling a lie Lying a major sin Prohibited

{وَلا تَقْفُ مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ...}
Allah, the Almighty, says: “And do not pursue that of which you have no knowledge.” [Al-Isrâ 17:36] 

                            {مَا يَلْفِظُ مِنْ قَوْلٍ إِلَّا لَدَيْهِ رَقِيبٌ عَتِيدٌ}
Allah, the Almighty, says: “Man does not utter any word except that with him is an observer prepared [to record].” [Qaf: 18] 

‹‹إنَّ الصدقَ يهدي إلى البر وإن البر يهدي إلى الجنة، وإن الرجل ليصدق حتى يُكتب عند الله صديقاً، وإن الكذب يهدي إلى الفُجور، وإن الفجور يهدي إلى النَّار، وإنَّ الرَّجل ليكذبُ حتى يُكتب عند الله كذابا››

On the authority of Ibn Mas’ud (may Allah be pleased with him) who narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: Truth leads to piety and piety leads to Paradise. A man keeps on telling truth till he is recorded as a truthful person. Lying leads to falsehood, falsehood leads to the Hellfire. A man keeps on lying till he is recorded as a liar. [Agreed upon] 


‹‹أربعٌ من كُنَّ فيه كان مُنافقا خالصا، ومن كان فيه خصلةٌ منهن، كانت فيه خصلة من نفاقٍ حتَّى يدعها: إذا اؤتمن خان، وإذا حدَّث كذب، وإذا عاهد غدر، وإذا خاصم فجر››
متفق عليه
On the authority of Abdullah Ibn Amr Ibn Alـ’As (may Allah be pleased with him) who narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: “Whosoever possesses these four characteristics is a sheer hypocrite and anyone who possesses one of them possesses a characteristic of hypocrisy till he gives it up: When he makes a covenant, he acts treacherously; When he talks, he lies; when he makes a promise, he breaks it; and when he quarrels he deviates from the Truth (he begins to abuse.” [Agreed upon]


                            ‹‹كفى بالمرء كذبا أن يحدِّثَ بكلِّ ما سمع››
                                             رواه مسلم
In another Hadith, which the Prophet shunned the one who transmits everything he hears. It is narrated by Abu Hurayrah, that the Prophet said: It is enough falsehood for a man to transmit everything he hears. [Reported by Muslim]


‹‹دعتني أمي يوما ورسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قاعد في بيتنا فقالت ها تعال أعطيك فقال لها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وما أردت أن تعطيه ؟ قالت : أعطيه تمرا ، فقال لها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : أما إنك لو لم تعطيه شيئا كتبت عليك كذبة››
رواه أبو داود
Abdullah bin ‘Amer said: The Prophet came to our home when I was a young boy. I went out to play and my mother told me: Abdullah, come here and I will give you something. Then the Prophet asked her “what were you going to give him?” She answered “Dates”, He then said: If you hadn’t given him, it would have been recorded upon you as a lie. [Reported by Abu Dawud]

The Prophet said: “One keeps telling lies till he is recorded by Allah as a liar.” [Reported by Al-Tirmizi] 

‹‹ما يزال العبد يكذب ‏ ‏ ويتحرى ‏ ‏ الكذب حتى يكتب عند الله كذابا ››رواه الترمذي

Dear Muslim brother be careful not to lie, as lying is the base of falsehood. The Prophet said:" lying leads to falsehood and falsehood leads to the hellfire.” [Agreed upon] 

‹‹إن الكذب يهدي إلى الفجور، وإن الفجور يهدي إلى النار››

Salafi Movement need of introspection and Intervention for correction

The history of campaigns and revolutionary or 
reformative movements shows that, after passage of a period of 
time, or when the scope of the effort enlarges greatly (specially 
when, by means of it, the attainment of certain advantages and 
leadership becomes apparent) then such weaknesses, unwanted 
objectives and neglect of the original goals set in, which reduce  
or even totally wipe out the true influence of the work.

To start any good idea or movement is difficult But to safeguard these Ideas and movement from loosing it path is more difficult.
After dealing these sectarian issues for last 3/12 years it is becoming apparent that salafi Movement is passing through that phase.

It is a right time for Salafi movement for introspection and this movement is in urgent need that Great Salafi Scholars should come forward to control the Salafis Flag bearer Youth to control further damage to their Movement and Damage to the Islamic Fabric caused by activities of misguided elements on the name of Salafi Dawah.

Obviously these misguided Youth has nothing to do with Salafi Ideology and no True Salafi is endorsing them.But so many subdivision among salafi so very difficult to know the true Salafi.

Still bigger problem is that these youth have become public interface and contact of Salafi Movement on internet.

Some of the key areas where these Youth needs proper Knowledge. 

1.Please be clear these youth who are being described below constitute a good part of those who identify them as salafi on internet.
2. But they have nothing to do with true Salafi/ Salafi Ideology .
3. Please dont blame true Salafi for act of these misguided youth/
4.They are simply misguided youth having a name of salafi/Ahle Hadith and doing nuisance on the name of true Islam.
5.May Allah save Muslims from this Fitnah.

1. There concept of Four School of Mazahib is 100% erroneous. They dont know the Process of Evolution of  Fiqh. Have no knowledge of all the Hadith  on a particular issue ..Say for example Placing hand during Salat...................

They will read one Hadith and will not read other and will go to general public Blaming that you are following Imam and I am follwing Hadith ............Sometime they will abuse the Great Imams will tell that they were not knowing Hadith
One of them has told that Imam Abu Hanifa was knowing only 3 or 17 Hadith..........How Erroneous they are......How little knowledge with flithy tongue they are.......Very erronous statements are coming on face book........

2. In Aqeedah to refute Taweel they will use so much philosphy that  will practically  Tajseem  (Anthropomorphism of Allah) ........Very erronous statements are coming on face book about Where is Allah? .....A simple matter well described by Quran hadith and Salaf like Imam Malik Rahimullah .......but they are making complex on you tube and face book discussion......

3.Branding everyone other than their sub-sub-sub ideology as Deviant Gumrah and Bidati .........

Initially they started doing against Hanafi, Shafaee, Maliki, Hnbali ....they became after Islamic Dawah Movements ....Jamaat e Islami, Tablighi Jamaat, Ikhwanul Muslimeen .....(No one is telling that these are error free movements ......Other than prophet no one is error free.......And it is duty of other Muslims to point out mistakes ....But their are clear Quran and Hadith guidelines for doing this in a good manner with love and humility.......There is no point of branding everyone as deviant.........
Now they are even not sparing Individuals who are identified as Salafi Dr zakir Naik, etc.........


مُّحَمَّدٌ۬ رَّسُولُ ٱللَّهِ‌ۚ وَٱلَّذِينَ مَعَهُ ۥۤ أَشِدَّآءُ عَلَى ٱلۡكُفَّارِ رُحَمَآءُ بَيۡنَہُمۡ‌ۖ

[48:29] Muhammad (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) is the messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are hard on the disbelievers, compassionate among themselves...
Some scholar with uncontrolled tongue having a special field to criticize other Scholars/Muslim Organisation/Movements  like Janab Talibur Rahman Sb ,Janab Tauseefur Rahman sb, Jnab Meraj Rabbani sb, Janab Motiur Rahman sb etc has become their Fazilatus Sheikh and Scholar of highest level.....They are always listening to them .......So their heart has become hard for other Muslims 

May Allah help the Muslim

(To be continued).
