I don't think I can believe in even the most authentic Hadith out there, because they all seem to be made up or fabricated in one way or another.

Now my question is, that, If I reject and refuse to believe in all of them, do I end up in Hell? Please Explain.

  • If you don't believe in hadith how can you pray? ... Are you following Mohammad (pbuh) or whom?

  • I think there's a distinction between someone who rejects hadith out of concern of authenticity and the one who rejects hadiths because he does not think the Sunnah constitutes part of the shariah. the second one is definitely a kafir while the status of the first one I don't think can be a kafir.

Actually, hadiths are not fabricated. For example, Bukhari validated each hadith meticulously with a criteria at 6 different levels. Please research the net or reach a book on how the hadiths were validated.

We have to follow Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) as documented in Quran. Yes, you will probably be punished to some extend for not following hadith or Sunnah of the Prophet.

The 6 authentic books of Hadith are Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, Abu Daud, Ibn Majah and Nissai. The compilers of these works took great pain to sift forged Hadith from the authentic ones and established a very strict criteria for this purpose so that no one could cast doubts about authenticity. The touch stone for the reliability of each hadith is the Quran itself.

  • I have answered, you have to read again and spoon feeding is unnecessary, you need to do you additional research in order to overcome the doubts. We have free will, but only Allah can guide oneself. If you already disbelieve, then only way to validate is to conduct research on how hadiths were validated then you have free will to believe. Search the net for the names I mentioned in my comments.

  • Still not reading properly. Read my comment where wording is 'punished'. And punishment is of course in hell in the hereafter unless decides to forgive.

    Well your statement still needs elaboration, we have to follow the sunna as it is documented in the Quran (where?). you will be punished (why? references for that?)...

All Praise to Allah Subhanahu wa Taala and blessings of Him be on Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him His family and companions

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah that : The Prophet said "I do not want to hear of anyone of you who, upon hearing a Hadith narrated from me, says while reclining on his pillow: 'Recite Qur'an (to verify this Hadith).' (Here the Propher SAW said) Any excellent word that is said, it is I who have said it." [How can you reject what I have said?](Ibn majah)

According to Fardh i'tiqadi (Fard belief) ,If Daleel is Qati (Proved from Quran and Mutawatir Hadith undoubtfully) then rejector of Fard I'tiqati would be Kafir(Disbeliever) and there is a consensus among all four school of thoughts that if issue is clear enough to all (like Prayers,Ruku,Sajdah) then he would be considered as Kafir (Disbeliever) and if some other person doubt about Kufr of rejector of Fard belief he would be considered as Kafir too.

And when there came to them a Book from Allah confirming that which was with them - although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved - but [then] when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it; so the curse of Allah will be upon the disbelievers.How wretched is that for which they sold themselves - that they would disbelieve in what Allah has revealed through [their] outrage that Allah would send down His favor upon whom He wills from among His servants. So they returned having [earned] wrath upon wrath. And for the disbelievers is a humiliating punishment.(Quran 2:89-90)

Allah Swt and His Messenger knows best.

  • "Any excellent word that is said, it is I who have said it" Are you really sure that Prophet said that? As far as I know, he would never, ever say anything (like that) which implies boasting, pride, ego or a God like state in himself. Could you please cite some references for that. Thanks

  • @newtoislam sunnah.com/urn/1250210 here is the reference, Yeah you are right he never did show pride himself but it is actually to show the importance of hadith as mentioned in Quranic verse " he does not speak from his own desire."JazakAllah

    Quoting a hadith, when the questioner doubts that hadiths are even valid in the first place, doesn't seem to be particularly useful here. Quoting a da'if hadith, even less so.

    And the Qur'an quote doesn't seem to have anything to do with the answer at all.

    "scholars technically permit it" isn't even remotely the same thing as "is actually useful here"
