January 24, 2020, 12:04:51 am Heba E. Husseyn: Do please read our blog entry @ Zainab's Lounge titled Murder of Qassem Soleimani and comrades.
January 04, 2020, 01:14:24 am Heba E. Husseyn: Martyrdom is the highest level of victory, higher than battlefield victory.  Inna Lilahey wa Inna Elahe Rajoon.  May The Almighty grant the pious general a wonderful welcome in Jannah. Ameen.
January 03, 2020, 02:30:43 pm N. Truth Seeker: One of the saddest days in modern history.   Cry  May Allah grant peace to the martyr and patience to the bereaved, ameen.

May 30, 2019, 06:15:49 am Zeynab: Alhudulilah, yes sister Ruhi.  Time flies in this fleeting world.  May Allah The Almighty accept our hard work in the permanent world.  That's the real success.
May 30, 2019, 03:43:58 am Ruhi_Rose: Jumaa-tul-widaa (farewell to Ramadan) tomorrow Friday 31.  How time flies!  Ya Allah, keep us close to Your mercy.

Lovely article with very well researched facts with direct references to the Noble Quran.  Really well written.  And lol, I think I can perceive that one "little point" with which you differ.  I differ with it too  Cheesy and I'm sure a well-read person like brother Fatoohi also differs.  But he's a bit afraid to speak openly .. that unfortunately is nothing unusual.

A number of factors affected what was written about and attributed to the Prophet over the decades and centuries after him. This fact should not stop us from being interested in learning the Sunna of the Prophet, but it should make us aware that this process is difficult and fraught with uncertainty.

Indeed he is absolutely right that what's today known as "sunnah" is "fraught with uncertainty."   I couldn't agree more.  Thus, it's a very important reason to stop us from being interested in learning this sort of manipulated "sunnah" which attributes sweeping guessworks / falsehoods to the Prophet (S).  To be interested in something after knowing it to be so heavily tainted and controversial would amount to purposely seeking help from a source not warranted by God Almighty.   This itself is a huge violation of the Quran.  The fact that most Muslims today don't understand the gravity of such a violation is another matter.  But that doesn't mean we should waste our time on the fake sunnah after being aware that it's a massive forgery.  This is the point with which I differ because this fact about the bungling of Sunnah should seriously stop us from getting involved with it.

But we should always be aware of the fact the Sunna of the Prophet has never been as accessible after the Prophet as the Qur’an. Allah promised in the Qur’an that He will protect the Qur’an from being lost or changed, but He did not make such a promise about the Sunna of the Prophet.

hummm .. this is very important.  It reflects exactly the same meaning we have been emphasizing here in several posts, that is, following the Quran means following the Prophet (S).  But following the "sunnah" is not guarantee for either following the Quran nor following the Prophet (S) because the teachings of the Prophet (S) being taken from the Quran were identical to the Quranic principles.

Verse 33:21 also basically refers to Sunnat Allah.  Allah tells us to follow the Prophet (S) because the Prophet (S) followed the way shown by Allah.  If the Prophet (S) had followed some other way of his own not endorsed by Allah, then Allah would not command the people to follow him.  Thus, "sunnah" of the Prophet (S) is subject to the Prophet's following of Sunnah Allah.  Unfortunately, the concept of "sunnah" today is totally different.
It's a matter of common sense that the "sunnah" or the behaviour of the Prophet (S) which is necessary for us to follow cannot be taken as something different from the contents of the Quranic commandments.  That's because as you've mentioned the "essence of religion never changes."   So, if the Quran and "sunnah" are taken as two different sources (which is exactly what's be considered at present), that would logically & realistically involve a deviation from the confirmed and unchangeable principles of Faith, obviously through innovative man-made laws, neither approved by God Almighty nor by the Prophet (S) who did not deviate from the unchangeable principles of Faith.
