Reflections on the Noble Quran

We keep hearing from religious leaders all sorts of arguments that limit the strength and sovereignity of Allah Almighty by making His Final Message dependent on the Hadith and modern fatwas.  They brazenly say that the Quran cannot be understood without Hadith, in other words meaning, the Quran is dependent on Hadith for explanation.  This also means  (and which the ulemas also say) that guidance comes only if you study the Hadith and not from the Quran alone.  They also claim that the counselling and lectures of ulemas, obeying the ulemas with blind trust and obtaining diplomas from Islamic universities are necessary for acquiring guidance.  In the process they totally ignore the quality of a person's heart and his (or her) intent.  That's how much our imams and ulemas emphasise upon the outer facade of every individual.  However, in the Noble Quran, Allah Almighty has clearly mentioned that whoever keeps their duty to Allah, Allah will Himself grant them wisdom and the ability of distinguish between right and wrong along with His forgivness.  Thus, Allah has made it ample clear that guidance can only be sought if we believe in Him and obey His commandments, and thus we become the recipients of Allah's bounty by approaching Him directly, NOT through the words, lectures or orders of imams and ulemas. 

"O you who believe! If you keep your duty to Allah, He will give you discrimination (between right and wrong) and will rid you of your evil thoughts and deeds, and will forgive you. Allah is of Infinite bounty."  (8:29)  Al-Anfal
 

The duties prescribed by Allah for humanity are mentioned only in the Quran.  These are the only authentic duties.  Thus, a person can be truly dutiful toward Allah only if they follow the Quran. 

Also NOT to forget, the contents of the Quran are the highest Criterion.  This means that if someone comes up with some 'duty' claiming it to be necessary for obeying Allah, the truth of it can only be analysed by comparing its conformity with the Quranic dictates and values on that issue.  If it clearly conforms, it can be accepted as a Quranic dictate or value, only because of its compatibility with the Quran.  But if that claimed 'duty' contradicts any Quranic commandment or value, or is an addition not contained in the Quran, then it's not a duty prescribed by Allah and a believer is not obligated to follow it as part of Faith.  The source of such duties is neither the Quran nor the final messenger of Allah.
