The Qur’an Shareef is the chief source of knowledge
Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’an Shareef:
“And He has sent down to thee the book explaining all things, guide a Mercy and glad tidings to Muslims.”
Sayeed Ibne Mansoor reported a Hadith Shareef on the authority of Ibne Masood (RA):
“One who wants knowledge, should get it from the Qur’an Shareef as in it is the knowledge of earlier generations as well as later genera-tions."
Baihaqi reports on the authority of Hassan:
“Allah Ta’ala sent down a hundred and four (104) books and then put all the knowledge of all these books in four books namely the Torah, Injil, Zaboor and the Qur’an Shareef and then put the knowledge of these three in the Qur’an Shareef"
Hadith Shareef is also from the Qur’an Shareef
It is reported in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim on the authority of Hadhrat Ibne Masood (RA) that Rasulullah (SAW) said:
“Allah Ta'ala curses those who pluck hair from their faces and who make spaces between their teeth for beauty thus changing that which Allah Ta'ala has created.”
This news reached a woman of Banu Asad who was called Umm Yaqub and she used to recite the Holy Qur’an Shareef. She came to Abdul-lah and said:
“The news has been brought to me that you curse those who tattoo and those who pluck hair from their faces and those who get them plucked and those who make spaces between their teeth for beauty and thus changing what Allah Ta'ala has created.”
Thereupon Abdullah said:
“Should I not curse those whom Allah Ta'ala has cursed,and this is what is found in the book of Allah Ta'ala.”
Thereupon the woman said:
“I have read the Qur’an Shareef from cover to cover but I did not find any-thing like it therein.”
“Had you read the Qur’an Shareef, you would have definitely found it that the Allah Ta'ala, the Exalted and the Glorious said,’Take whatsoever Messenger gives you and abstain from whatsoever he forbids you.’ ”
The old lady said that yes she had read that in the Qur’an. Abdullah said that as Rasulullah (SAW) has said, so therefore, this is also indirectly from the Qur’an Shareef.
The old lady understood it and acknowledged that that was also from the Qur’an Shareef.
We know that a Hadith Shareef of Rasulullah (SAW) contain countless precious gems of knowledge covering many many branches of knowl-edge, out of which each gem uttered by the blessed tongue of Rasulullah (SAW) hides a bottomless ocean within it, as one of the miracles of Rasulullah (SAW) was that he was Jawami-ul-Kalim which means that small sentences contained an ocean of meaning within them. These oceans of knowledge which are flowed gems of Hadith Shareef originat-e from the Qur’an Shareef.
Sayeed Bin Jubair says:
“No Hadith Shareef has reached me from Rasulullah (SAW) similar of which I have not found in the Qur’an Shareef.”
Some other have said:
“There is nothing which cannot be extracted from the Qur’an Shareef by those whom Allah Ta'ala has bestowed upon such understanding.”
