Qur’an is Heaven. Hadith is Earth.
The source of one — Qur’an — is God Direct. And the source of the other — Hadith Sharif — is Man: Rasulullah, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
And yet the two — Qur’an and Hadith — are so directly interconnected, so closely fused together, that you cannot insert even a puff of thin air between them.
The Golden Pathway between the two of them — between Qur’an and Hadith — is so clear and so luminous that even the blind can sense its radiance.
Here is an illustration.
Aayat of the Qur’an:
Wa Man Yatawakkal Alallahi Fa-Huwa Hasbuhu.
“Whoever puts his trust in Allah,
Allah should be sufficient for him.”
“Whoever leaves his affairs in Allah’s hands,
Allah will take care of them for him.”
Along comes the response from the Hadith, in the form of a Du’a, or Wird, if you will, taught by Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
La-Ilaaha Illaa Huwa,
Wahuva Rabbul Arshil Azeem.
- I place my trust totally in Allah.
No one deserves to be worshiped other than him.
And he is the Master of the Great Throne.
- I am leaving all my affairs in the hands of Allah.
There is no God besides him.
And he is the Lord and Master of the Great Throne.
For the lost, wandering and confused spirits among you. And for the Hunters of Miracles among you, there is no greater miracle on this earth than this.
And this is a miracle that you can see with your own naked eye. And one that you can feel and touch with your senses.
And all this in real time.
And mind you, this is just one instance. Examples of this divine connection between Heaven and Earth, between God Almighty and his Messenger, Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, between Qur’an and Hadith, are too numerous to cite here.
It is a book — in several volumes — that someone should be writing some time.
Now, ask yourself, if you ignore this overwhelming evidence of your own senses, and your own logic and mind, what face will you show God Almighty on the Day of Judgment?
And what fate might await you?
