Principles of interpretation of Hadith

Principles of interpretation of Hadith

 Text of a Hadith

After investigating the chain of narration of a Hadith, the second thing which requires investigation is the text of a Hadith. Although scholars of Hadith have left no stone unturned in investigating the characters and biographies of the narrators and have spent a greater part of their lives in this research, yet like every human endeavour, the natural flaws which still exist in the narration of a Hadith requires that the following two things must always remain in consideration while investigating the text of a Hadith:

1. Nothing in it should be against the Qur’an and Sunnah

2. Nothing in it should be against established facts derived from knowledge and reason

Of course one should believe these principle after due pondering under the guidance of Quran and Sunnah and every effort should be made to harmonize one’s interpretation with Quran.

One Response to “Principles of interpretation of Hadith”

  1. Hank Kimball Says:

    Genesis 3:3-5; ” God has said, ‘YOU​ must not eat from it, no, ​YOU​ must not touch it that ​YOU​ do not die.’”At this the serpent said to the woman: “YOU​ positively will not die. For God knows that in the very day of ​YOUR​ eating from it ​YOUR​ eyes are bound to be opened and ​YOU​ are bound to be like God, ​KNOWING​ good and bad.”

    Now, the serpent is Satan as seen here in Revelation 20:2; “And he seized the dragon, the original serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. ”

    For context, Satan is bound,after Armageddon, for this thousand years, for the purpose of Jesus and the 144,000 anointed to bring the rest of humanity(the great crowd prophesied in Revelation 7:9-17) to perfection. Satan will then be released for a short while,so that, humans, now perfect in God’s eyes, will be tested by Satan, now fairly, as without original sin in them. It is prophesied that even after all this humans had lived through, some will fall away into sin. Then Satan and all those who were misled will be destroyed. Then the resurrection of the dead and their judgement follows.( Revelation 20: 3-14)(This is condensed, but available in any bible).

    Now, in Genesis, as stated earlier, Satan claimed man will not die. God said he would if he ate the ‘forbidden fruit’.
    SO, let’s see what the bible says about death:

    Ecclesiastics 9:5 “For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten”
    Now that is WHAT WE ALL KNOW to be TRUE.

    The bible says man is A SOUL. It does NOT say he HAS A SOUL. Genesis 2:7: “And Jehovah God proceeded to form the man out of dust from the ground and to blow into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man came to be a living soul”.

    No ORGANIZED religion, before the 19th century, taught that man is conscious of NOTHING in death. That ONLY GOD has the power to resurrect man. They ALL STILL,BUT ONE, teach that the soul is really who a man is,and that it continues to live on after the body dies. SOUNDS LIKE WHAT THE DEVIL TOLD EVE. There have been faithful men over the course of history, after Jesus had died, that were faithful to GOD’S WORD. SOME WERE RESURRECTED to heaven to be educated to rule with Jesus as part of the 144,000.

    The organized religion that teaches the truth of the bible, THEY DISCOVERED in it, began slowly in the 19th century. IF IT ISN”T IN THE BIBLE OR IN HARMONY WITH THE BIBLE IT ISN”T GOD’S WORD. WE DATE OUR CALENDERS IN ALL THE WORLD BY THE BIRTH OF GOD’S ONLY BEGOTTEN SON. JESUS DID NOT WANT WORSHIP.HE CAME TO DO NOT HIS WILL BUT THE WILL OF GOD. THIS IS WHY WE PRAY TO GOD IN JESUS NAME; BECAUSE WITHOUT JESUS SACRIFICE, THAT GOD GAVE US, THERE IS NO HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE.

    When the last of the 144,000 (about 9000 left) are gone, the end is near. This number is ‘about’ because some have claimed they are but prove to be mistaken or just plan crazy. NO BODY knows when the day or hour will come. I hope to not offend. I follow the bible and NO MAN.
