Following the Quran and Sunnah.

Q. Before the blessed month, I asked the question which Madhab does the institution follow. By the mercy of ALLAH, I realized that I was wrong in my question. It is not the Sunnah of Imam Abu Hanifa or Imam Malik. We follow the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasul (s.a.w) and no Imam is above either or none amongst them is better than the other except in the sight of ALLAH.

A. Probably you may be right, and this is why you should not be listening to a single scholar on the face of the earth. You should not listen to Shaikh Albani, Shaikh Ibn Baz, Ibn Uthaimeen and the rest. You should not even listen to your local Shaikhs because none of them is the Quran and Sunnah.

In the same way, you should not even take any hadith from Imam Bukhari, since he was only a scholar and the Sunnah is not Sahih Al Bukhari. Tafseer Ibn Katheer should also be out of your sight, since this is a commentary of the scholar, Hafiz Ibn Katheer and it is not the Quran.

You should also avoid attending Islamic classes conducted by any Islamic Scholar, since the one conducting the class is not the Quran nor the Sunnah, and as you said ‘We follow the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasul (SA).’

And Allah knows best.
