Sheikh Dr. Essam Al-Bashir, vice-president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, said that the Prophet’s Sunnah represents the following revelation of the Holy Quran, and comes in three aspects: confirming the Quran, clarifying it, and independent by legislation not mentioned in the Koran.
In his speech at the episode (04/17/2021) of the program “Sharia and Life in Ramadan”, Al-Bashir explained that the Sunnah is defined in the language by the method, and what Sharia means is this. may the Prophet, may the prayers and peace of God be upon him, utter words, deeds and reports, and represent the next revelation of the Holy Quran.
Almighty God linked his obedience to the obedience of the Prophet, so he said, “Whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed God.” O those who believe, answer God and the Messenger, if he calls you to that which gives you life. He coupled his love by following him and said, “Say if you love God, follow me, God loves you.” All of these conjugations confirm that the Sunnah is the context of the Quran as the Prophet said, and they (the Quran ‘an and Sunnah) will not separate until Answer Me basin. “
Sheikh Al-Bashir added that scholars invoke the saying of Almighty God: “And what the Messenger has given you, take it and what we forbid you to do, then they end” in the chapters on beliefs, jurisprudence, ethics, consolation by the Prophet, devotional rituals, laws and relationships.
The Sunnah of Revelation
The vice-president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars explained that the Sunnah of the Prophet came from revelation, inferred with the goodness of Almighty God the wisdom of the book in his saying: “The book and wisdom teach them Meaning of the Prophet, may the prayers and peace of God be upon him, is to teach people the book, that is, the Quran, and wisdom, which is the Sunnah, as he said al-Emam Al Shafi.
And Almighty God has mentioned that wisdom is revealed just as the book was revealed, in His word, “That which has been revealed to you of the book and of wisdom.” Hassan bin Atiyah quoted the Companions as saying that Gabriel, peace be upon him, was revealed to the Messenger of God by the revelation of the Sunnah, just as it was revealed to him by the revelation of the Quran.
Sheikh Al-Bashir pointed out that the link between the Sunnah and the Holy Quran is close in that the understanding of the Quran is only established by the completion of the Sunnah of the Prophet, and therefore Almighty God told His Noble Prophet, “And we have sent you the remembrance to show the people what has been revealed to them.” And the remembrance includes the recited book and the worshiper with its recitation and the miracle with its words, i.e. the Quran, and this includes the revelation of the Sunnah which is not recited and not worshiped or spoken. miraculously.
The relationship of the Sunnah to the Quran
Sheikh Al-Bashir explained that the Sunnah’s relationship with the Quran presents itself in 3 ways: the first is that it confirms a decision made by the Quran, and the second is that it clarifies the Quran as is the case to explain acts of worship such as prayer, Hajj and the like, and the third is that it is independent with legislation not mentioned in the Book of God.
Al-Bashir gave an example of the Kharijite incident denying that Omar bin Abdul Aziz stoned married adultery and made menstruating women make-up to fast without praying, claiming that there was nothing such in the Book of God, then ben Abdul Aziz asked them: Are you saying only what is in the book of God? They said: Yes, then he said: Tell me about the number of prayers, their rak’ahs, their pillars and their timing, and the zakat, its amount and its timing? So they said: Give us, then he gave them 3 days, then they came back, and he said: Did you find anything in the Book of God? Publicity
The Vice President of the International Union of Muslim Scholars added that the Sunnah means from God and its pronunciation is from the Prophet, may the prayers and peace of God be upon him. God has ensured that the Holy Quran is preserved in its authenticity, and the Sunnah is also according to the memorization of the Quran as it is a statement from the book.
