The Difference between the Quran and a Hadeeth Qudsee
In the name of Allah. The One who sent His final messenger with light to help the blind to see. The One who there is absolutely no deity worthy of worship but Him. Peace and blessing be upon His final messenger, his family, his companions and whoever follows their way. The following was taken from “ Idmanut Turruq lee Ma’rifatil Furuq” this book was written by Abu Ammar Yasir Al-Adenee.. He currently resides in Hadramout. He has published a book titled” Hedieya fee Tarteeb Faw’id Beedieyah wa Neehiya”. Taken from At-Taabaqat on page 65.
“Say (O Muhammad SAW) Ruh-ul-Qudus (Jibrael ) has brought it (the Quran) down from your Lord with truth, that it may make firm and strengthen (the Faith of) those who believe and as a guidance and glad tidings to those who have submitted (to Allah as Muslims)[ Nahl 102] and Allah says,
“Say (O Muhammad Peace be upon him ): “Whoever is an enemy to Jibrael (Gabriel) (let him die in his fury), for indeed he has brought it (this Quran) down to your heart by Allahs Permission, confirming what came before it (i.e. the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) and guidance and glad tidings for the believers[Baqarah 97]
Hadeeth Qudsee didn’t require Jibreal to reveal this revelation, but sometimes he did and some Hadeeth Qudsee were revealed by inspiration.
Extra points of benefit about Hadeeth Qudsee :
Abu Sheehab ibn Hajr Al-Haytaamee (909-974 H)* mentioned in his commentary on An-Nawawee’s forty hadeeth that there are three kinds of speech connected to Allah.
And some Hadeeth Qudsee were revealed to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)while he was asleep. End of quote from book.
*Al-Haytaamee was the Mufti in Hijaz during his era. His name is Shehabud Deen Abu Fadl Ahmed ibn Muhammad Badrudeen ibn Muhammad Shamsudeen Ali Nurudeen ibn Hajr As-saadee’ Al-Haytaamee. Haytaamee is named after a village in the countryside of west Egypt. He was born there. He moved to Mecca and died there and he followed the Shafa’I Mathab. He has written numerous books such as; Fatawa Hadeetheeyah, Tufathul Muhtaj fee Sharh Minahj-Fee Shafa’I Fiqh and Sharh Arba-een An-Nawawee.
