- Standard Sunni Islam states that Muslims must believe in the Quran and the Hadith.
- Quran-only Muslims are considered heretical.
- The Quran is believed to be the perfect word of Allah.
- The hadith not perfect.
My questions are
What is the point of the Quran being perfect if the hadith are not but are essential for Islam?
Why would Allah not include everything required for Islam in his perfect book and do away with the need for Hadith?
Imagine I got a gram of the absolute finest, 24-carat gold and mixed it with 99 grams of tin to make a ring. (I know that's a heavy ring) What would be the point of me getting the finest gold only to mix it with a lesser metal to make the ring?
