In Islam, there is no Church. However, the common knowledge, the established notions and the popular creed play the role of an intellectual and ideological Church which denies freedom of thought and shackles free intellectual development. Kassim Ahmad was born on September 9, in Kedah, Malaysia. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Malay language and literature, but also read widely in political science and Islamic philosophy.
He taught Malay language and literature for a time in the London School of Oriental and African Studies and then in a secondary school in Penang where he has been staying with his family since He has written several books on Malay literature as well as on Islamic subjects.

The main thesis of the book is that Hadith has been compiled without permission, either from the prophet, or from the four Righteous Caliphs for fear of confusing it with the Quran, the first source of Islam. Because of the power struggles between different political factions, each pretender legitimized his claim by recourse to a saying of Prophet Muhammad in his favor.
Pious Muslims such as Bukhari and Muslim tried to collect these sayings after verifying their authenticity.

The history of how Hadith came to be incorporated into Islam is one of the biggest cover-ups that is never taught to Muslims in school or in easily available books, and will be truly disturbing to any Muslim. This book goes through what happened and provides evidence.
For example, most Muslims do not know there were bans on recording and writing hadith, even after the prophet Muhammad died, Hadith collections were burned, some people who transmitted them were jailed etc.
It is only generations after prophet Muhammad died that Hadith began to make their way into formal Islam and gain prominence, e. Sahih Bukhari was collected about hundred years after Muhammad died! I recommend this book for all Muslims, and even non-Muslims. It can de read in full online. Mankind has the tendency to deviate from God’s teachings and create their own without realizing the harm and the implications of their actions. Hence, why each religion has become divided into multiple sects.
This phenomenon is no stranger to Islam. The author of this book argues that the recorded Hadith the sayings by the prophet Muhammad which are not to be confused with the Quran are untrue and are hadihh the core of Islam. The author argues that they are man kassik and they have caused Muslims to deviate from God’s true message. The author provides logical, scientific, and Quranic evidence to support his arguments. He argues that sectarianism within Islam is caused kasism such Hadiths, and that if Muslims return to the Quran as the only source for Islam, the Muslims will reunite under one religion as they were once long time ago.
Unfortunately, it is also a human tendency to shut one’s eyes and ears when threatened by a different ideological principles.
Therefore, Muslim institutions do not appreciate this book. The only thing I can say is read it and decide for yourself. A must read for all students of theology in general and Islamic theology in particular. The author has very ably used the Quran as his weapon of mass destruction. Some of his statements did seem speculative at best and created questions in my mind but on the whole this is a brave attempt. A little trivia that could potentially dissuade some people from accepting or even entertaining this authors view: Rashad Khalifa, the authors inspiration, started claiming he was a prophet before he was killed.
Hadith: A Re-evaluation: Kassim Ahmad: : Books
One person found this helpful. Kassim Ahmad has delivered a tour de force on the stupidity of the hadiths. The contradictions between the Quran and many hadiths, the Prophet’s ruling against hadith collections, the hilarious way they were collected, the fallacy that somehow Bukhari’s collection can be above criticism ebaluation finally the Quran THE supreme and ONLY authority stating kasism it is the only relevant hadith; ‘These are God’s revelations that we recite for you with the truth.
In which hadith besides the revelations of God, do they believe?
Hadith: A Re-evaluation
These have deserved humiliating retribution’. Ahmad tackles bh claims of the traditionalists and utterly refutes them and the stupefying effect their claims have upon Muslims and the Ummah in general. Hafith shall eventually prevail despite the attempts of fools to keep the ordinary Muslim under the thumb of their self created priesthood. This triumph shall be achieved in no small respect due to this easily readable and coherently argued book. Prepare to be blown away by Kassim Ahmad. If you want to know the truth about Islam and its ‘derivatives’, this is where to find it.
Its a pity that this book was banned in Malaysia where the author was born as soon as it got published. Makes me wonder if there’s a deliberate plot to keep the truth under wraps, or even worse, to keep Muslims worldwide from thinking! Care to see what the minority of Muslims submitters beleive? In which Hadith other than God and His revelations do they believe? Truth alone means Quran alone!
