Although the Qur'an does not specifically say the amount of prayers that people should pray, it has said multiple times to follow and obey the prophet's commands. And of the prophets commanded, praying five times a day was certainly one of them.
Obey Allah (Ta’ala) and His Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam)
(3:132) (4:13) (4:59) (4:69) (4:...
We all know that the Quran is the primary source for anything about Islam, but it is more likely to be a kind of abstract this means when it comes to details we need the sunna as a 2nd reference.
Now, let's see what we can find in the Quran:
Maintain with care the [obligatory] prayers and [in particular] the middle prayer and stand before Allah , ...
This is a strictly Sunni view (AFAIK):
The number of prayers is already strictly mentioned in Hadith, but I will show the evidence in the Quran itself for five prayers. See this ayah:
حَافِظُوا عَلَى الصَّلَوَاتِ وَالصَّلَاةِ الْوُسْطَىٰ وَقُومُوا
"Maintain with care the [obligatory] prayers and [in particular] the
The number of prayers can be derived from two verses of Qur’an:
أَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِدُلُوكِ الشَّمْسِ إِلَىٰ غَسَقِ اللَّيْلِ
وَقُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ ۖ إِنَّ قُرْآنَ الْفَجْرِ كَانَ مَشْهُودًا
[17:78] Establish prayer at the decline of the sun [from its
meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur'an of
dawn. Indeed, the recitation ...
One major problem i personally have with those who say we take the Quran only is: That Quran has been brought to us through a sane narrator chain with a high degree of tawatur, which is (or at least should be according to definition) the same case for Sahih Hadith. And riwayat al-ahaad in case of Quran have always been rejected!
Note that as @makzimus said ...
My answer is with regard to someone who knows the relevant information about a set of ahadith, i.e. their isnads and the opinions of the muhadditheen (the scholars of hadith) about their status, and still rejects those ahadith.
Al-Ghazali in "faysal at-tafriqa" (available in a somewhat pricey translation by Prof. Sherman Abdulhakim Jackson) explicitly ...
I'll try to answer your question from an other perspectiv or at least point at some facts and beside this share some hopefully logical issue's and thoughts that came into my mind.
Most sunni scholars say if you perform a deed in the (deep) belief that this is a sunnah of the Prophet or the way our Prophet used to do it you may gain thawab (rewards) if it ...
Yes at least tafsir al-Jalalayn could be one well known "tafsir" that meets your requirements. And there are also books or what one can call comments of the Qur'an where some terms and words are at least explained inside the text or as a footnote (or something similar).
The meaning of tafsir
First of all let's define our term:
Why do they reject Hadiths? How do they arrive at a rule solely based on Quran? Are they out of the folds of Islam or not?
They reject hadith due many reasons. Their assertions are:
Quran is enough for any Islamic issue
Hadith is not authorised by Quran
Hadith were not recorded in the time of prophet
Hadiths have many contradiction, and also ...
Essentially, Qur'an-only Muslims tend to be diverse; some outright reject anything outside of the Qur'an, while others allow outside material to varying degrees.
Ahmed Subhi Mansour, for example, writes (sourced from here):
So long as God is sufficient enough for the Believer as a lord, then so too is the Book of God sufficient enough for guidance and ...
Some people do this, and it's called Quranism, and they use the justification that the Qur'an is perfect and complete, and perhaps even argue that it does not require others to interpret it.
This stance is considered poorly by mainstream Islamic scholars (see e.g. Islam Q&A), and virtually all Islamic scholars make use of ahadith in their rulings. The ...
Quran mentions Ghusl (غسل) for ritual purification from Janabah:
ياأيها الذين آمنوا لا تقربوا الصلاة ... ولا جنبا ... حتى تغتسلوا
O you who have believed, do not approach prayer ... or in a state of janabah, ... until you have washed [your whole body].
— Quran 4:43
It is also implied to be required after Menstruation:
وإن كنتم جنبا فاطهروا
And if you are ...
According to quran you need to do wudu' for every prayer. Based on (5:6)
O you who have believed, when you rise to [perform] prayer, wash your faces and your forearms to the elbows and wipe over your heads and wash your feet to the ankles.
What breaks wudu' isn't mentioned there as quran doesn't mention details but overall rules.
You may want to refer to this answer to the question "Is the Quran complete? If so, why do we need Hadith?" on Islam Stack Exchange.
The Qur'an has a verse that explicitly says it is the Book about which there is no doubt:
ذَٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ
This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for ...
Among the verses used as an evidence you may often find quoted (4:159):
And there is none from the People of the Scripture but that he will surely believe in Jesus before his death. And on the Day of Resurrection he will be against them a witness.
as this verse indicates that the people of the book will no more be in dispute about 'Isa as they still are ...
As a quranist muslim i have a lot of respect for ghamdi(who has far as i know is not quranist). That being said being human we are all fallible. I listen to different scholars from different sects and try to follow the most reasonable logical explanations.
This is difficult to answer because Qur'an-only Muslims have different opinions about scholars. Some outright reject any material outside of the Qur'an, deferring to one's God-given logic, while others allow outside material to varying degrees.
Two prominent examples are:
Ahmed Subhi Mansour, who Wikipedia says "founded the small Egyptian Quranists sect", ...
This seems to be a concrete example:
Prayer during menstruation is haram according to scholars:
...if a woman is menstruating, it is unlawful (haram) for her to pray, fast, or allow her husband to have intercourse with her... --- Shaykh Hamza Karamali, Qibla.com, sourced from IslamQA.org (Shafi'i Islam)
It is haraam for a menstruating woman to pay both ...
According to Quran is leaving Islam a sin? If it is then is there a punishment listed? I dont want answers from Hadees, only from Quran.
The one who intentionally and willingly rejects Allah after he/she had Iman, then Allah's wrath is upon them and they will be punished (Quran 16:106):
مَن كَفَرَ بِاللَّهِ مِن بَعْدِ إِيمَانِهِ إِلَّا مَنْ أُكْرِهَ ...
