Unlike the Qur’an, which is the same literary work recognized by all Muslims, the ahadith are not one single same collection. Just as the minority Quranists are not a single community, believers of the ahadith, or hadithists, are also not a single community. Hadithists simply share the feature that, in addition to Quran, they incorporate belief and practice of ahadith— though not necessarily the same hadith collection.

Qur’an with which they conflict. Unlike the Qur’an the hadiths were not quickly and concisely compiled during and immediately after Muhammad’s life. Qur’an at all, but are derived solely from the hadith. Hadithists, therefore, maintain that the ahadith are a necessary requirement for the true and proper practice of Islam, as it gives Muslims the nuanced details of Islamic practice and belief in areas where the Qur’an is silent.

Quranists, for their part, leave the detail of salat to be a matter between each individual Muslim and Allah, with salat performance done to each Muslim’s own individual understanding, interpretation and need. However, different groups and different scholars may classify a hadith differently. Muhammad but that is not found in the Quran. The isnad was an effort to document that a hadith had actually come from Muhammad, and Muslim scholars from the eighth century until today have never ceased repeating the mantra “The isnad is part of the religion – if not for the isnad, whoever wanted could say whatever they wanted.

Then the generation following them received it, thus conveying it to those after them and so on. So a companion would say, “I heard the Prophet say such and such. The Follower would then say, “I heard a companion say, ‘I heard the Prophet. Ibn Abbas, but this is rejected by scholars. Sharia system, but rather a collection of parallel Sharia systems within Islam. Much of early Islamic history available today is also based on the hadith and is challenged for lack of basis in primary source material, as well as internal contradictions of the secondary material available.
Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. Traditions of the life of Muhammad and the early history of Islam were passed down mostly orally for more than a hundred years after Muhammad’s death in AD 632. Muslims to record the hadith just as Muhammad suggested to some of his followers to write down his words and actions. Uthman’s labours were cut short by his assassination, at the hands of aggrieved soldiers, in 656.
