Islam is obeying Mohammed and following his example

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?

Dear Nuray:

I was born a muslim and am a citizen of an islamic country (I told you I have muslim name).You indicated that you live in country of non muslims whom Allah calls kafirs and says in quran they are my enemies and I am theirs, they are liars, if you make friends with them you are one of them, dont work for them, they are perverts, they are liars.

Yes denying hadith is denying guran. You can get away with it in a non muslim country. In my country denying hadiths gets you behind bars under our blasphemy laws. Quran says continuously "obey Mohammed (20+ times), obeying Mohammed is obeying Allah (4.80), follow Mohammed, Mohammed is your example (33.21), his character is your standard (68.4). Hadiths and siras are the only sources we got to practice what quran orders to follow Mohammed's example. Didnt he come to show how to live according to quran? Otherwise Jibraeel could have just dropped the quran.That is the very reason whole islamic world barring some heretic groups like submitters, tulu e islam, tauhidians etc follow both Allah from quran and sunna from hadiths. Apparently you belong to one of those heretic groups.

You have a right to believe whatever you want but dont call it islam. Islam is following Allah and Mohammed.What Allah said is in quran . What Mohammed said is in hadiths and sira.
I really have nothing else to say. Good bye. A.A.
Submitting....
