Obligation to follow Qur’aan

Qur’aanic Verse 28:85:



85. Inna allathee farada AAalayka alqur-ana laradduka ila maAAadin qul rabbee aAAlamu man jaa bialhuda waman huwa fee dalalin mubeenin


85. Indeed! He Who has made the Qur’an obligatory13 on you will surely bring you (Muhammad) back home. Say, “My Lord knows who brings guidance and who is in delusion manifest.”

Study Note:

13. Obligation to follow Qur’aanic instructions is inherently imposed here on Prophet Muhammad (peace on him), and through him on his Ummah. No such obligation is imposed anywhere in the Qur’aan to follow any other book. This Verse was obviously revealed when the Prophet was forced to leave his home town Mecca under pressure of intense persecution from his co-inhabitants there.

 The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil V, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II,  Manzil III and Manzil IV of the series are already published.

Mohammad Shafi



  1. Sheikh Muhammad ibn Salih ibn Uthaimeen has replied the following with regards to the rejection of Sunnah of Messenger Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wassalam as:

    Denying (the sunnah) could be of two types: a denial with regards to interpretation or a denial of rejection. If it is a denial of rejection, in the sense that one might say, “Yes, I realize that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said this, but I reject it and don’t accept it,” then the person is a kaafir (unbeliever) and has committed apostasy. Thus, it would be impermissible to pray behind him. If, on the other hand, it is a denial of interpretation, then he is granted a respite, if the interpretation is possible and warranted by the language, and he knows the sources of Islamic law and its resources. In this case, it is not an act of kufr, but rather under the category of those who innovate incorrect practices in the religion (if his interpretation is such). It would be permissible to pray behind such a person, unless there is a beneficial objective behind not doing so, such as deterring him from such opinions, so that he may reconsider his mistaken interpretations. In this latter case, then it would be preferable not to pray behind him (if such a beneficial effect would be realized).

    • The Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (peace on him) was to follow the Qur’aan

  2. Quran was interpreted, explained,
    Commented and acted upon by Prophet Muhammad as witnessed by thousands of the companions of Messenger of Allah.
    Quran is the Hadith what the Messenger Muhammad peace be upon him attributed to ALLAAH Most Exalted Lord while as Hadith what your logic or reason or your ego don’t accept are the testimonies and witnesses of the most truthful and trustworthy companions of Prophet peace be upon him. As time passed many liars and mentally suck people started fabricating false Hadith and attributing them to the Prophet of ALLAAH what the scholars of Islam who protected the true message and words of Allah and His messenger by seperating the authentic from the fabrications and strong from weak. By denying life and the works of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him you are not only trying to deny the historical facts but infact you are denying all the witnesses of the companions, Islamic History, ideal Character and the living example of the Messenger Muhammad peace be upon him. Any who denies the life and works of Prophet Muhammad and rejects the witnesses and testamonies of the best Believers the companions of Messenger Muhammad is himself in a great deception and illusion of Satan his own selfish desires and his ignorance.
    We seek refuge of Allah from the cursed Satan and from the evil whisperings of our own ignorant selves and from the evil of our evil doings Aameen!

    • Qur’aan is easy to understand, as the Qur’aan itself repeatedly affirms. Not to believe in any Qur’aanic assertion is kufr. So follow the Qur’aan! You would thus be following the Prophet as well.

  3. I think this verse gives support to the people who do not follow Hadith or believe that any Hadith are reliable. It also, though, begs the question of what it means to follow what the Quran says. For example, when the Quran talks about inheritance does that mean we follow the letter of what Mohammed wrote or the spirit of what he wrote. God was obviously telling Mohammed to give women rights. Extrapolating to today’s culture, though, the writings do not seem like rights. They seem backward and anti-woman.

    • 1. Mohammad did not write the Qur’aan. The Book is divine.
      2. The Qur’aan is to be followed in letter and in spirit.
      3. It is today’s culture that is anti-woman inasmuch as it by and large exploits her as a sexual object. The Qur’aan gives her due respect & rights.
