Allaah Yahdeek , thank you for your reply.
Hafiz of Quran are our chains of narrations
In other words , the Isnaad. The names of transmitters are known to us - until the beginning of the chain (Allaah 'azza Wa Jall)
We do need chain of narration for hadiths to categorize hadiths, that's not the case with Quran.
If we did not have the isnaad then any person could claim something was from the Qur'aan that in reality wasn't. Further, how would one conclusively decide one way or another without chains?
Reason for the post
was as a result of watching some videos from 'Speakers Corner' (London, UK). I know at least one 'ahadeeth rejector' and so this line of argument may prove useful inshaaAllaah.
In the first video
, brother Adnan Rashid (vs ahadeeth rejector) mentions that the transmitters of the qur'aan are the same people who transmitted the hadeeth.
See time frame (start - 1:05) .
In the second
, brother(s) Mansour and Adnan display an isnaad of a transmission of the Qur'aan - of the Qiraa'ah of 'Aasim /the riwaayah of Hafs.
See from (3:05) for isnaad display.
A link has been provided in the comments section (of the second video) for a download of the isnaad display.
Still searching for examples of isnaads for both al-Qur'aan
and ahadeeth to support the argument made by the brother (s)
