While I was going to help this man (Ali Ibn Abi Talib), Abu Bakra met me and asked, "Where are you going?" I replied, "I am going to help that person." He said, "Go back for I have heard Allah's Apostle saying, 'When two Muslims fight (meet) each other with their swords, both the murderer as well as the murdered will go to the Hell-fire.' I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! It is all right for the murderer but what about the murdered one?' Allah's Apostle replied, "He surely had the intention to kill his companion."
Vol.:9, Book: 88 Number: 204. Narrated Al-Hasan:
The fabricators of Hadith, the so called Imams and their associates have suggested to the simple and ignorant people that there are many problems of life where the Holy Qur'aan gives no guidance or is silent or it does not clearly mention, and only Hadith describes such problems and gives guidance.
The matter to ponder is when two Muslims or group of Muslims take up their weapons against each other, does the Qur'aan give any guidance in this or not? If yes, then whether it clearly describes or is ambiguous so that people have to refer to Qum, Bukhara, Tirmiz, Nishapur or Deoband for its clarification?
Those Hadith lovers should spare some time to read the Qur'aan:
"And if two parties of believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them. And if one party of them doeth wrong to the other, fight ye that which doeth wrong till it return unto the ordinance of Allah; then, if it return, make peace between them justly, and act equitably. Lo! Allah loveth the equitable."
Verse 49/10. Pickthal:
"The believers are naught else than brothers. Therefore make peace between your brethren and observe your duty to Allah that haply ye may obtain mercy."
May Allah guide us all through the Qur'aan
