Science of Hadith ??????

“ Majority of Abu Huraira's ahadith doesn't even contain common sense, science being a far cry. Moreover, let's not get into that old crap called "science of hadith." If a nonsense like Hadith can involve "science" then indeed science is a very stupid thing that needs to be abandoned.”

As-salam alaikom.

We can not invalidate a hadith and call Bukhari or Abu Huraira (companion of the Prophet) liers relying just on our personal interpretation, it needs a scientific method, the same method that Scholars use, because sometimes the Prophet don't speak literally, maybe he just wants us to understand the importance of prayer in the mosque.

It's not about "personal interpretation." It's about possessing just 2 brain cells to understand what we read in the Ahadith is a pack of humbug and a violation of the Glorious Quran. E.g. If a friend of yours writes a comment about you in which he abuses you and gossips about you falsely, you will simply read it, understand it and tell him that he's a liar. Or, will you need to take it to a "scholar" and ask him to use a "scientific method" to prove that he's liar? Majority of Abu Huraira's ahadith doesn't even contain common sense, science being a far cry. Moreover, let's not get into that old crap called "science of hadith." If a nonsense like Hadith can involve "science" then indeed science is a very stupid thing that needs to be abandoned.

I'm sorry but I don't at all agree with you when you say "Prophet didn't speak literally." The Prophet (SAAW) was a very honest and truthful person. The Quran tells us to be honest and reason with people in a manner that's kind & fair. The Quran never commanded the Prophet (SAAW) to threaten people by not speaking literally in order to scare them into performing their religious duties. On the contrary the Quran says "there is no compulsion in religion." And we know for sure that the Prophet (SAAW) obeyed the Quranic dictates meticulously. To say that the Prophet didn't speak literally is yet another insult for our beloved Prophet. It's our imams & scholars who don't speak literally. The Prophet was very truthful, upfront and honest.
