Hadith al-Thaqalayn as VIewed by Ahl al-Sunnah
As mentioned earlier, the same tradition mentioned in the foregoing chapter, has been reported by scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah, acknowledging it in more than twenty of their well-known refrence books.Thus they have implicity given evidence against themselves of being deviated, as they have never adhered to the Pure 'Itrah, and adopted unsubstantial schools of thought with no warrant revealed by Allah, having no place in the Prophetic Sunnah
The surprising fact concerning today's scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah, after decline and perdition of the Umayyads, and during an age witnessing development of direct communication and prevalence of sceintific research media, is that why don't they think of repentance and coming close to Allah for being with those meant by the Almighty's saying:
"And lo! verily I am forgiving toward him who repenth and believeth and doeth good, and afterword walketh right". (20:82)
If people, throghout past centuries during caliphate time, have been corrected to follow and obey the sultan by force and suppression, what excuse can they produce today, while the ruler has nothing do with religion as long as his throne is saved, vaunting with democracy and human rights that include freedom of thought and belief?
We are left with some Sunni 'ulama' objecting the afore-mentioned Hadith al-Thaqalayn with the hadith ''I am leaving behind among you the Book of Allah and my Sunnah".100
100. We previously said that the hadith "The Book of Allah and my Sunnah "the Book of Allah and my 'Itrah" is a sahih and mutawatir one reported in all the sahih of the sunnah and Shi'ah.
