How could Persian hadith defenders or apologists understand the Quran, because God has confirmed that their access to Quran is already blurred (see: Q 17:46, 56:79).? So, they read the Quran, explain it, makes volumes of tafsira, study volumes of a manmade, man-given fatwa, fiqh, masaala, stories, and myths. And in the end, after finishing their big madrasa, declaring himself as a maowlana, mufi, sheikhs, religious scholars, religious theologians, and so many manmade names and titles. After achieving mixed Persian and Arabian jumble in their religious qualifications, they become very self-satisfied, thinking that they reached the bottom of the ocean in knowledge. So, they present them for people to believe that God thus appointed them as HIS agent to maintain HIS Deen as its gatekeeper. Whilst it is admitted that they might have attained their manmade religious qualifications successfully and have become indoctrinated and brainwashed to catch up millions of blind followers like a herd of sheep, they themselves have made them utterly ignorant, knowing not that they have no access to the messages and guidance that God provides in HIS Kita’b (see: Q 17:46, 56:79).
To them, the Quran is like a wallpaper to cover their manmade dogma, fatwa and religious scholarship to protect and support their pre-occupied study, notion and influence of their ancestors. So, when they open the Quran, they do not open it sincerely to hear from God alone. Instead, they put on the goggles of Persian hadith beforehand and then try to match God’s verses into their manmade revered biblical mullah’s commentary, understating and fiqhs. They do not have absolute trust given by God in HIS Kita’b in truth; rather, they place their ultimate trust in their six Persian books (Kutub-al-Sittah) and associate those men’s hearsays with Kita’b-Allah. In preaching their ancestors’ dogma and tradition, they keep cherry-picking in the verses of God to mix and match to mislead their blind followers to make them permanently blindfolded so that they follow them like a flock of sheep. One of the examples of these self-declared scholars is as follows, wherein we find how the verse of God separated and twisted to get their objective.
Just see how dishonest those who separate and twist the verses of God, as the entire verse 7 in sequence with verses 6 and 8 in surah Hashr is as follows:[Quran 59:6] “You did not have to drive on your horses or your camels for whatever gains God turned over to His Messenger from them. God gives authority to His messengers over whoever He will: God has power over all things”.
وَمَآ أَفَآءَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِۦ مِنْهُمْ فَمَآ أَوْجَفْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ خَيْلٍۢ وَلَا رِكَابٍۢ وَلَـٰكِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُسَلِّطُ رُسُلَهُۥ عَلَىٰ مَن يَشَآءُ ۚ وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍۢ قَدِيرٌۭ
مَّآ أَفَآءَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِۦ مِنْ أَهْلِ ٱلْقُرَىٰ فَلِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ وَلِذِى ٱلْقُرْبَىٰ وَٱلْيَتَـٰمَىٰ وَٱلْمَسَـٰكِينِ وَٱبْنِ ٱلسَّبِيلِ كَىْ لَا يَكُونَ دُولَةًۢ بَيْنَ ٱلْأَغْنِيَآءِ مِنكُمْ ۚ وَمَآ ءَاتَىٰكُمُ ٱلرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَىٰكُمْ عَنْهُ فَٱنتَهُوا۟ ۚ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ۖ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ شَدِيدُ ٱلْعِقَابِ[Quran 59:8] “The poor emigrants who were driven from their homes and possessions, who seek God’s favour and approval, those who help God and His Messenger- these are the ones who are true.”
لِلْفُقَرَآءِ ٱلْمُهَـٰجِرِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا۟ مِن دِيَـٰرِهِمْ وَأَمْوَٰلِهِمْ يَبْتَغُونَ فَضْلًۭا مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ وَرِضْوَٰنًۭا وَيَنصُرُونَ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥٓ ۚ أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلصَّـٰدِقُونَ
Now, see how the RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS and MULLAHS change and twist the meaning of the verse of God to mislead the readers by quoting only the fraction of the last part of Q. 59:7 as follows:
—-“therefore, accept whatever the messenger gives you and abstain from whatever he forbids you (wa-ma ata’kum Al/r-Rasul fa-khuzu-hu wa-ma na-ha-kum a’n-hu fanta-hu وَمَآ ءَاتَىٰكُمُ ٱلرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَىٰكُمْ عَنْهُ فَٱنتَهُوا۟ ۚ) — (Q. 49: 7)
Or, as they express:
“You should accept whatever the Messenger gives you and abandon whatever he tells you to abandon”. (Q. 49: 7)
The religious scholars or mullahs then associate a Persian hadith with this verse of God, stating as following:
In addition to what the Quran prohibits, the Prophet can also prohibit other things. Therefore, the Prophet says in a hadith, which a Persian man called Mr Muslim presents as follows:
Abu Huraira reported that he heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:
“Avoid that which I forbid you to do and do that which I command you to do to the best of your capacity. Verily the people before you went to their doom because they had put too many questions to their Prophets and then disagreed with their teachings”.
حَدَّثَنِي حَرْمَلَةُ بْنُ يَحْيَى التُّجِيبِيُّ، أَخْبَرَنَا ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، أَخْبَرَنِي يُونُسُ، عَنِ ابْنِ شِهَابٍ، أَخْبَرَنِي أَبُو سَلَمَةَ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، وَسَعِيدُ بْنُ الْمُسَيَّبِ، قَالاَ كَانَ أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ يُحَدِّثُ أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ “ مَا نَهَيْتُكُمْ عَنْهُ فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ وَمَا أَمَرْتُكُمْ بِهِ فَافْعَلُوا مِنْهُ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُمْ فَإِنَّمَا أَهْلَكَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ كَثْرَةُ مَسَائِلِهِمْ وَاخْتِلاَفُهُمْ عَلَى أَنْبِيَائِهِمْ ” .

Just look at the corruption of these so-called religious caretakers and see how God scorns these twisters and corrupt men:
[Quran 2:16-18] “They have bought error in exchange for guidance, so their trade reaps no profit, and they are not rightly guided”. They are like people who [labour to] kindle a fire: when it lights up everything around them, God takes away all their light, leaving them in utter darkness, unable to see- DEAF, DUMB, AND BLIND: THEY WILL NEVER RETURN”.
أُو۟لَـٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱشْتَرَوُا۟ ٱلضَّلَـٰلَةَ بِٱلْهُدَىٰ فَمَا رَبِحَت تِّجَـٰرَتُهُمْ وَمَا كَانُوا۟ مُهْتَدِينَ — مَثَلُهُمْ كَمَثَلِ ٱلَّذِى ٱسْتَوْقَدَ نَارًۭا فَلَمَّآ أَضَآءَتْ مَا حَوْلَهُۥ ذَهَبَ ٱللَّهُ بِنُورِهِمْ وَتَرَكَهُمْ فِى ظُلُمَـٰتٍۢ لَّا يُبْصِرُونَ — صُمٌّۢ بُكْمٌ عُمْىٌۭ فَهُمْ لَا يَرْجِعُونَ[Quran 2:270-171] “ But when it is said to them, ‘Follow the message that God has sent down,’ they answer, ‘We follow the ways of our fathers.’ What! Even though their fathers understood nothing and were not guided? The example of those who disbelieve is like that of one who shouts at what hears nothing but calls and cries – deaf, dumb and blind, so they understand nothing”.
وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ ٱتَّبِعُوا۟ مَآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ قَالُوا۟ بَلْ نَتَّبِعُ مَآ أَلْفَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ ءَابَآءَنَآ ۗ أَوَلَوْ كَانَ ءَابَآؤُهُمْ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ شَيْـًۭٔا وَلَا يَهْتَدُو — وَمَثَلُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ كَمَثَلِ ٱلَّذِى يَنْعِقُ بِمَا لَا يَسْمَعُ إِلَّا دُعَآءًۭ وَنِدَآءًۭ ۚ صُمٌّۢ بُكْمٌ عُمْىٌۭ فَهُمْ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ[Quran 17:97] “And whoever God guides – he is the guided; and whoever He lefts astray – you will never find for them protectors besides HIM, and WE will gather them on the Day of Resurrection on their faces – BLIND, DUMB AND DEAF. Their refuge is Hell; every time it subsides, We increase them blazing fire”.
وَمَن يَهْدِ ٱللَّهُ فَهُوَ ٱلْمُهْتَدِ ۖ وَمَن يُضْلِلْ فَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِهِۦ ۖ وَنَحْشُرُهُمْ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَـٰمَةِ عَلَىٰ وُجُوهِهِمْ عُمْيًۭا وَبُكْمًۭا وَصُمًّۭا ۖ مَّأْوَىٰهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ ۖ كُلَّمَا خَبَتْ زِدْنَـٰهُمْ سَعِيرًۭا
How much deaf, dump, and they are, they do not know! They are too numbed to think. They are too arrogant to perceive that God guides those on HIS discretion by HIS Kita’b as explained in the Quran. Thus, they are TOO THICK TO THINK!
“— Then, will you not reason?” (Q. 2:44, 2:76, 3:65, 11:51) Afalaa’ ta’kilun ( أَ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ )?
