    Sunnis do not consistently reject all Ahadith, not by a long shot.

    If anything, they generally tend to trust Ahadith a bit more than the Shia.

    There are Quran-only (Quranist) movements in Islaam, and it is difficult to calculate how many people they encompass, but in any case they are not that strongly correlated with the Sunni.

    The name Sunni derives from Sunnah, the way/tradition of the prophet based on his sayings and actions. Hadiths are integral to this.

    The violence internal and external in Islam is conveniently ducked and dodged when referring to problems and weaknesses in Western cultures.

    These are conceptual stories that happened long time back!

    How does it matter now, unless you want to be stuck in conceptual boxes divorced from reality ! It is very similar to insanity and madness.

    The only that matters is the living present moment, not the dead past !

    As salamu alaikum,

    The majority follow their Scholars and Leaders:
    Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei of Iran issued a fatwa against cursing the Companions or the Household of the Prophet pbuh.

    Shia Scholars have reinforced this ruling.



    Allahu Alim

    How it doesnt matter?

    If a random guy comes to your mother and starts insulting her by calling her a wh**e, would you call such a person your brother?

    Well for us Muslims Aisha (ra) and the companions of the prophet pbuh are more beloved to us than our own family.

    This is why I stated that most muslims have not completed the internal Jihad taught by Muhammad, which is far superior to the external Jihad.

    The greatest Jihad is the Jihad against one's own self. - Muhammad

    Those who have not completed the inner Jihad will live in the past or future in conceptual boxes divorced from reality, and will pick up quarrels for trivial reasons, wasting their time, energy and resources.

    Those who have finished the inner Jihad will respond rather than react, and will live intelligently and peacefully nipping all conflicts in the bud itself.

    Imam Ja’far al‑Sadiq (a) said: “The Prophet (s) of God dispatched a contingent of the army (to the battlefront). Upon their (successful) return, he (s) said: ‘Blessed are those who have performed the minor jihad and have yet to perform the major jihad.’ When asked, ‘What is the major jihad?’ the Prophet (s) replied: ‘The jihad of the self (struggle against self)’”. [Al-Majlisi, Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 19, p. 182, hadith no. 31]

    This hadith is not from the sunnah. This is what shias believe. In Islam the real meaning of Jihad is fighting.

    The hadith makes sense, because many other wise persons all over the world have said the same.



    Let him that would move the world first move himself. - Socrates

    A man who conquers HIMSELF is greater than one who conquers a thousand in battle. Buddha

    He who conquers others is strong; He who conquers himself is mighty. - Lao Tzu

    He who conquers himself is the mightiest warrior. - Confucius

    Self conquest is the greatest of victories. - Plato

    Wouldn't that be Christianity? That's a little self-defeating, to posit that a man will come back from the dead well enough to slay all those who refuse to follow him.

    But then, he would have to first come back from the dead. So spare us the veiled threats and fear mongering.

    If there were no apostasy punishment, would Islam exist today?

    Actually, it will be politely and conveniently avoided, because the persecution of Baha'is in most Islamic countries is subject to be avoided.

    The internet is not from Islam, nor is electricity for that matter. Perhaps you should've relayed this message with smoke signals instead?
