Dear Mubashar ,  
Answer is very simple  
1.. " listen to every body . 2.. Then put the verse to . test of Arabic Grammar 3.. note down the words..find out the meanings . and the use if any other than the basic meanings of root letters 4..see the refernce and the cotext of the verse .  
and then " DECIDE FOR YOURSELF "  
" DONT FORCE ANYBODY TO FOLLOW WHAT YOU HAVE UNDERSTOOD "  
rather try to understand what others say and then judge .

***One hadith lover presented the difference of opinion over salat and salat timings among Qur'an only scholars. Can anybody suggest how best to respond to them?***  
 
Any so-called Quran only and alone individual who considers salaa to anything other than allegiance to Allah to obey His Commandments, is not a Quran only and alone individual.  
 
***They wonder who to follow if not hadith/sunnah?***  
 
Give them these these ayats:  
 
6:106 FOLLOW THAT WHICH IS REVEALED to thee FROM thy LORD — there is no god but He; and turn away from the polytheists.  
 
10:15 And when Our clear messages are recited to them, those who have no hope of meeting with Us say: Bring a Quran other than this or change it. Say: It is not for me to change it of my own accord. I FOLLOW NOTHING BUT WHAT IS REVEALED TO ME. Indeed I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the chastisement of a grievous day.  
 
Ayat 6:106 makes it clear to follow only what Allah revealed--Ayats/Al-Quran/Words of Allah, and ayat 10:32 makes it clear that the Last Prophet ONLY FOLLOWED what Allah revealed--Ayats/Al-Quran/Words of Allah.  
 
The next two ayats deal with hadith:  
 
39:23 Allah has REVEALED THE BEST HADITH, a Book consistent, repeating (its injunctions), whereat do shudder the skins of those who fear their Lord, then their skins and their hearts soften to Allah’s remembrance. This is Allah’s guidance — HE GUIDES WITH IT whom He pleases. And he whom Allah leaves in error, there is no guide for him.  
 
45:6 These are the AYATS of Allah, which We recite to thee with truth. In what HADITH will they then believe AFTER ALLAH AND HIS AYATS?  
 
Ayat 39:23 makes it clear that Allah refers to His Quran as hadith and it is the best hadith. If one has the best of anything available to him/her, why would he/she use what is less than the best? For example, if your child was sick and you were offered a good medicine to treat the child, a better medicine to treat the child, and the best medicine to treat the child...which medicine would you give your child every time?  
 
In 45:6 Allah asks a rhetorical question (a question that is not to be answered, because the question itself is the answer) which states that there is no other hadith which one can believe in/trust for his/her guidance other than Allah's Ayats/Al-Quran/Words of Allah.  
 
Those who wish to change the Quran or bring hadiths other than Al-Quran for your guidance, are bringing you hadith to mislead you:  
 
31:6 And of men is he who takes instead frivolous discourse/HADITH to lead astray from Allah’s path without knowledge, and to make it a mockery. For such is an abasing chastisement.  
 
There are many here who consider every ayat of Al-Quran to be a mistranslation, but I would find them hard pressed to find a problem with the above translation.  
 
Dhulqarnain-

Comments by: abdullahbashoeb On 28 July 2011
Salam  
 
Instead of learning the Qur’an and implementing it, they keep on discussing Shariah and Sunnah and regulating their lives accordingly. It is interesting to note, every sect has its own Sunnah and Shariah, and its followers adhere to that brand, vehemently. Islam, the dynamic way of life, functioning through an administration based on the constitution of the Qur’an, along with its particular fiscal policy, is now reduced to a bunch of worthless rituals, such as five daily prayers, worshipping the dead saints, and repetitive incantation of self-generated arbitrarily qualifying characteristics of Allah and Mohammad, through Darood and Salam. The common English synonyms of the noun ‘prayer’ are entreaty, plea appeal and request, whereas, the verb ‘pray’ has compatible words like implore, plead, beg and ask. Praying is the present continuous form of the verb, which the people do, to show their devotion to God, along with expressing their earnest desire for some worldly wish, which they believe, the super power they are imploring can easily fulfill. In fact, they believe, through such an action of theirs’, He can finally hear them, and respond to their pleas.  
 
The Muslims, besides doing all of the above, also want to show their Allah, how much they revere Him, and, simultaneously, how scared they are of Him. The Muslim prayer, identified as Sallat, by the literature of Ahadith and Sunnah, fabricated by the Shi’ah and Sunni Aimmah of Iran, three centuries after the death of Mohammad, is the most important pillar of Islam, and for that reason, a significant number out of 1.5 billion  
Muslims, the world over, prays five times a day.  
 
Almost every Islamic scholar, along with a vast majority of global Muslim population has strong, but strange faith that the edifice of Islam is firmly resting on top of five pillars, which are enumerated below  
 
1. Nimaz [Iranian term for prayer] or Sallat  
2. Zakah: A typically severe derivation of capitalist system based on charity  
3. Hajj: A yearly congregation of common Muslims in Mecca, to  
perform fabricated rituals, which the Qur’an does not endorse  
4. [4] Shahadah [monotheism]  
5. [5] Fasting during the month of Ramadan  
 
However, this structural definition of Islam is very pathetic, as the Qur’an does not endorse it at all.  
 
This presentation is a monolithic approach to the subject of Sallat and Zakah, which constitute complementary building blocks of the state, created under the constitution of the Qur’an. The detailed discussions, based on concrete evidence would show the readers, what a heinous conspiracy was hatched against Allah, Mohammad and the Qur’an?  
How Sallat, which translates into the formation of a government, turned into a ritual of five daily prayers, and how Zakah, which means economic system established on voluntary basis, changed to 2.5% extreme kind of capitalist system based on charity on annual savings?  
 
Factually, there is a challenge for the Muslim priests, active in 75 Muslim and many non-Muslim countries, in minting money through donations, how they claim to be the custodian of the Qur’an, when they constantly defy its code with fabricated Ahadith, synthetic Sunnah and unlawful Fiqah. On top of that, they indulge, day and night, into forbidden practices of eulogizing Allah and Mohammad through Zikar and Darood-o-Salam, indulging in prayers with fictitious Adyah [plural of Dua] and conducting many other ceremonies, which are against the tenets of the Qur’an.  
 
The Muslim priesthood calls Islam a religion, which the Qur’an denies outright. The last revelation of Allah identifies it as Al-Deen, which does not translate into faith or belief, because it is a constitution, for not only Muslims, but also the entire humanity. A straightforward example is that of American constitution; it is a working document, according to which federal and provincial governments of that country function. No rituals are  
attached to it, because it is neither a dogma, nor a creed.  
 
The Muslim clergy, the real driver of religion Islam, stresses upon the ritual part only. According to this group, that is the only purpose, for which Allah kept on appointing Messenger after Messenger for over four and a half millennia, right from Noah to Mohammad. That shows the ignorance or rather perceptive bankruptcy of the alleged custodians of the Qur’an, who claim to disseminate the real knowledge of the Book among  
the Muslims. What a pity!  
 
o Does Allah really command Muslims to pray five times a day,  
together with paying charity?  
 
o If the answer to the above question is in the affirmative, then  
why Allah directs Muslims only to do so, exempting all other  
nations, which received the same charter?  
 
o Does it really guarantee the praying Muslims an abode in the  
so-called heaven, elaborately described by the deceptive Ahadith and Sunnah writing Aimmah of Iran?  
 
o What could Allah possibly intend to achieve from billions of  
supplications, performed by millions of Muslims, every day?  
 
o Hypothetically, if the objective and factual findings of this  
treatise prove beyond any doubt, Allah never directed  
Mohammad and his followers to pray five times a day or dish  
out any charity, then where would the innumerable Muslims  
stand, which had been doing something awful for the last 1,100  
years, following their ridiculously ignorant Aimmah?  
 
o If the postulate of supplications turns out to be dead wrong, in  
view of the irrefutable evidence coming from the Qur’an, that  
Allah never gave any command for its commission, then who  
shall be responsible for the biggest blunder and disobedience in  
the human history, continuing on for over a millennium?  
 
o Undoubtedly, Allah’s basic principle maintaining this  
immensely vast cosmos is Cause and Effect, which means  
‘nothing happens without reason.’ Then, how would the futile  
religious practices, like unwarranted worshipping ritual in the  
form of Nimaz, prevalent Hajj and Ummrah of the commoners,  
incantation of Darood-o-Salam, besides many others, would be  
justified in Allah’s court, and who would dare to do so?  
 
In order to ascertain, what actions Allah wants the humans to take, and which ones to avoid, it is imperative to analyze the prevalent religious practices established within the file and rank of the Ummah, from the Qur’an’s viewpoint.  
 
This step is essential in view of the fact the Muslim clergy has been claiming throughout the ages that whatever they tell the people to do, is the command of Allah. They are strictly following the last revelation. Unfortunately, that is not the truth! As shall be proven during the course of this dissertation, they are, in fact, the biggest liars of the Islamic history. On the very outset, they get their queue from the literature of Ahadith and Sunnah, which in their opinion is as good as the Qur’an. They dare to equate the Qur’an with the Iranian crap, which came into existence almost three centuries after the death of Mohammad  
 
The Aimmah, exclusively originating from Iran, were the real adversaries of Allah, the Qur’an, and Mohammad, the Arab. They deliberately authored the junk of Ahadith, Sunnah, Traditions and Fiqah, in the name of the last Messenger of Allah, to belittle him and his magnificent companions, besides creating contradictions among the clear-cut verses of the Qur’an.  
 
Since the emergence of professional priesthood along with three other cursed ‘novelties’ of the 4th century Higrah, namely eunuchs, mausoleums and Sufis, they have been claiming and issuing edicts to the effect, “We are following the directives of Allah for praying in the right and productive way.”  
 
Unedited English version of a few Ahadith from the so-called Imam Bukhari, are presented below, which deserve some deliberation:  
 
‘The prayers should awaken believer’s heart to his Lord and to himself, and remind him the Day of Judgment.’  
 
[Comment: The use of masculine pronouns means; this Ahadith is an exclusive for men and precludes women. This is against the tenets of the Qur’an, because Allah always addresses both masculine and feminine genders, together.]  
 
‘Between a man and disbelief is only the abandonment of prayer.’  
 
[Comment: According to Bukhari and Muslim, a non-praying Muslim is an infidel and a Kafir (non- Muslim).]  
 
‘The covenant between us and them is prayer, so whoever abandons it has disbelieved.’  
 
. [Comment: This Ahadith is flawed, as it sounds more like a verse of the Qur’an than a statement of Mohammad. To create literature, which resembles the verses of the last revelation in format and style, is a serious offence against Allah’s code.]  
 
Consequently, in view of the Islamic priesthood, performing supplications is like a complementary pass, or even better, a key to the main gate of paradise, as reported by the fake literature of Ahadith and Sunnah. Moreover, the one, who denies prayers, is not a Muslim in the first place. That is the main distinction between a Muslim and a non-Muslim. It is imperative here to find out, what the Qur’an states about Muslims and non-Muslims, in general. [17:70]  
 
‘In accordance with the laws of Allah, every human being is equally honorable  
 
The above verse does not make any distinction between human beings based on creed, color, ethnic origin, language, etc., and there is definitely no mention of supplications. This clearly means the fictitious prayers, stressed upon by Ahadith and Sunnah, do not play any role in the life of common people and are not even mentioned in the constitution of the Qur’an.  
 
Allah’s code is immutable and any addition is out of the question. The prayers that the Muslims are practicing all over the world, are not only superfluous, but constitute an offence against the Charter of Rights and Obligations endorsed by the Qur’an. In view of the current set of circumstances, and the deplorable condition of the Muslim Ummah, a change is inevitable. There seems to be a dire need of overhauling the Islam, the professional Muslim priesthood is presenting to the majority of Arabic illiterate Muslims, divided into hundred of sects, all over the world. The Muslim clergy has corrupted the Al-Deen into a religion over the centuries, which is the real problem that needs fixing. The human history provides ample evidence to the fact; the most problematic task to undertake, is bringing about a transformation in the views of the people, especially concerning, a touchy matter, like faith. It  
requires a revolution, which is not an everyday occurring.  
 
Despite the above considerations, a change is inexorable, because the Muslims have consistently ignored a very pertinent piece of information for 1400 years, which Allah presented to the entire humanity, through the medium of the Qur’an.

MUBASHIR: One hadith lover presented the difference of opinion over salat and salat timings among Qur'an only scholars. Can anybody suggest how best to respond to them? They wonder who to follow if not hadith/sunnah?  
 
YOU CAN TELL THEM TO FOLLOW THE JEWS AND CHRISTIANS INSTEAD OF HADITH!!!  
 
The same way like you have been forcing people to follow them here;  
http://www.aastana.com/blog/aastanablog.asp?QID=1465  
 
But wait!!!  
 
Ain't the hadith lovers already following Jews and Christians???  
 
PERHAPS YOU YOURSELF ARE CONFUSED ABOUT ALL THIS.  
What's the difference between you who forces people to follow their ancestors/ Jews and those who follow the books of hadith? I think you both are the same!!!
