Quranism or Quraniyya (Arabic: القرآنية‎; al-Qur'āniyya; also known as Quran-only Islam or Quranic Islam) is a protestant branch of Islam. It holds the belief that Islamic guidance and law should only be based on the Quran, thus opposing the religious authority of the hadith literature. Quranists believe that the Quran is already clear and complete and it can be understood without referencing outside texts. Quranists claim that traditional religious clergy use religion for their personal benefit, the vast majority of hadith literature are fabrications and that the Quran itself criticizes the hadith both in the technical sense and the general sense.

  • Quranism or Quraniyya (Arabic: القرآنية‎; al-Qur'āniyya; also known as Quran-only Islam or Quranic Islam) is a protestant branch of Islam. It holds the belief that Islamic guidance and law should only be based on the Quran, thus opposing the religious authority of the hadith literature. Quranists believe that the Quran is already clear and complete and it can be understood without referencing outside texts. Quranists claim that traditional religious clergy use religion for their personal benefit, the vast majority of hadith literature are fabrications and that the Quran itself criticizes the hadith both in the technical sense and the general sense. In matters of faith, jurisprudence, and legislation, Quranists differ with Sunnis and Shias who consider the Hadith, scholarly opinions, the opinions of the sahaba, ijma and qiyas Islam’s legislative authority in matters of law and creed in addition to the Quran. Each hadith-espousing sect of Islam has its own distinct collection of hadith upon which its Muslims rely, but they are rejected by other sects, while the Quranists reject all of the differing collections of hadith and have none of their own. This methodological difference has led to considerable divergence between Quranists and Sunnis and Shia in matters of theology and law as well as understanding of the Quran. Quranists claim that the Sunni and Shias have distorted the meaning of the verses to support their agendas. Quranism is similar to movements in other Abrahamic religions such as the Karaite in Judaism and the Sola Scriptura view of Protestant Christianity. (en)

  • The first true Quranist was the Prophet Muhammad, who did not follow anything except the Qur'an. We are not a new direction in this respect. (en)
  • What is obligatory for man does not go beyond God's Book. If anything other than the Qur'an had been necessary for religion, the Prophet would have commanded its registration in writing, and God would have guaranteed its preservation. (en)
