I came across this hadeeth, reported by many and rated Hasan (Sound) by Al-Albaani and Mashhoor (well known) by Ibn Taymiya,
خرج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم على أصحابه وهم يتناظرون في القدر، ورجل يقول: ألم يقل الله كذا، ورجل يقول: ألم يقل الله كذا، فكأنما فقئ في وجهه حب الرمان، فقال: أبهذا أمرتم؟ إنما أهلك من كان قبلكم بهذا، ضربوا كتاب الله بعضه ببعض، وإنما نزل كتاب الله ليصدق بعضه بعضا لا ليكذب بعضه بعضا، انظروا ما أمرتم به فافعلوه وما نهيتم عنه فاجتنبوه
The Prophet (PBUH) came out one day to find two Sahaaba arguing about Al-Qadar (precision of timing and amount of everything that God does). One man says, "Did God not say such?" And the other man says, "And did God also not say such?" The Prophet (PBUH) got so angry
, you would think seeds of pomegranate burst in his face! He said to them, "Is that what you have been commanded? That is what destroyed those who were before you
: they knocked parts of the Book of God with other parts. The Book of God was not revealed so that parts of it knock other parts; it was revealed so that all its parts affirm each other
. See what you have been commanded and do it and what you have been forbidden and avoid it."
This hadeeth implies many dire consequences to believers in the abrogation doctrine:
- Any talk about contradictions in the Quran makes the Prophet (PBUH) furiously angry!
- Those who believe that verses cancel other verses set themselves up for destruction!
- All commands and prohibitions in the Quran must be complied with.
Belief in the abrogation doctrine is dangerous to your faith.
