    1. Registration at Muslim Villa is by clicking the "Register" button located on the horizontal bar on top of the homepage.

      By the way, we would appreciate if you explain a bit more on what you mean by "simple and sinful Muslim." We aren't counselors and not experienced in guiding "sinful" folks. Just letting you know.

    My name is Dan Taylor. I am revert of over 17yrs however only started practising since my father passed away 3 years ago. Quite honestly, I was introduced to the hadiths quite early on, it's what majority of traditional Muslims rely a lot on for guidance and right away what didn't resonate with my heart was the constant reference to the sunnah and not the Quran I am searching for the truth and God willing I hope to find it someday. I would be greatful if I could join this blog and benefit from it for the sake of Allah. Salaam.

  3. Salam,

    I am a practicing Muslim who would love to call himself as non-denominational. I have done a fair amount of reading on the history and evolution of Hadiths and consider it as purely speculative and mostly contrary to the teachings of glorious Quran. I would love to contribute to any effort that attempts to bring the Muslim mainstream back to the constitution of Quran.

    I have registered at MV as aamirsyed

  4. Salam, I found your site while googling if Hajj was in the Quran because I consider it the main source of Islam. I do not agree with many hadith and don't trust the rest. I have tried another Muslim forum but they label you a "Quranist". Modern Islam is at least %50 hadith and 50% Quran and that is just wrong to me. I would love to talk to like-minded people. Jazak Allah khairun

  6. Walaikum As-Salam AM. Thank you for the message. Unfortunately yes, Islam today is defined through hadith almost entirely and that's unacceptable. Still more surprising, the term "Quranist" is supposed to carry a negative connotation in Hadithist circles. Just shocking. Feel free to put in your queries. InshAllah, we'll soon be opening the guestbook board at MV so you can post questions there too as a guest. If you wish to register, do please post a more detailed intro.

  7. The problem is most Muslims are hadithists now so I am glad to have found a place. Where do I post a more detailed intro and what should I include in it?

  8. Salaam AM. You can either post a detailed intro here. Or, the Guestbook at MV is now open and you can post it there if you wish. Though we're experiencing some technical issues in regard to guest replies in that board. It's up to you. Feel welcomed to post either here or there.

  9. I am a female Muslim from America. I was born Muslim but raised without cultural Islam and emphasis was put on Quran rather than hadith. I have tried joining another forum before this, but it turned out to be full of Salafis who label you a "Quranist" and deviant if you do not agree with silly hadith that often contradict Quran or are baseless. They will come up with the mose asinine excuses for things like drinking camel piss being halal and good for health, or the hadith about a woman letting a grown man suckle on him which magically makes him mahram so he can see her without covering, not to mention letting a grown man that's not her husband touch her breast not being considered haram and how does that remove the sexual attraction of the man for the woman? These are the kinds of things that make me angry and I do not want to be associated or speak to Muslims who are so dumb that they can't do some critical thinking and read the many verses about the Quran being the only HADITH that's necessary. Ya Allah, He even uses that word!

    I am very happy I found this forum, and people who think similarly. Inshallah it will be beneficial to me.

  13. Hello SiteOwners,

    I sent a request under the username "ash".

    I found your site after 30 years of hardcore hadith worship. I use the term worship, after only recently understanding what is I have been doing. I've been on a quest for truth for roughly two years now. It began by me purchasing all nine volumes of Bukhari and reading them all, twice. And then doing the same with Muslim. I began doing this because I thought I would be more knowledgeable in field of Hadith. The outcome was entirely different than I imagined, and I'm glad it happened.

    I'm a writer. I've written for film, television, and some books. I'm working now on a part-fiction/part-fact novel on this topic. Call it a Da Vinci Code for Islam. And I find your site may offer me a lot of valuable information that I should include.

    1. Salaam. Thank you for your comment.

      Where do you stand in regard to the Noble Quran?

      What's the ideology of the novel you're working on?

  14. Salam Aleikum (Introduction from Khadija_H)

    I am a 29 years old female Muslim from Denmark. My parents reverted to islam when I was 11, and I decided to do so as well one year later. I'll tell where I stand regarding The Quran by telling about en episode I experienced this week.

    A few days ago I was attending an evening class in a Masjid I like and the topic was islamic law with focus on hygiene.

    At some point the teacher says to us that it's sunnah to do ghusl during a drought. I raise my hand and asks her. "Sorry I'm asking this but to me it sounds unwise to tell people to bathe during a drought". The teacher tells me that since it is sunnah it's the right thing to do. I try to ask again, "Why would the prophet tell people to waste water during a drought?". She tells me that it doesn't matter why because the prophet has said so and that it is his sunnah. I decided not to continue because with those words people close the topic.

    I felt downspirited and told my father, as I have done before, that it annoys me that people always seem to weight hadith so high because they're manwritten and everything manwritten should be able to be questioned and critizised. Since we both agree on this fact I can talk to him about these things. I asked him if no others than us believe that the Quran is what we need to seek answers from since it's Allah's words, and that hadith tends to complicate what Allah made easy. He told me that we're not alone but that people rarely speak up because they're afraid to do so and because the majority of people are pretty impossible to dicus this topic with. When I then asked him where to find people who share our views he recomended me to visit Muslim Villa.

    I hope my introduction is saticfying and detailed enough, that I did everything right and posted at the right place.

    1. Walaikum As-salaam Sister Khadija. JazekAllah Khair and many thanks for the interesting introduction. Also our thanks to your father for recommending you to visit Muslim Villa. The occurrence at the Masjid you mentioned is exactly the problem with majority of our traditionalist brothers and sisters. You are also right that many of them do realize the glaring discrepancies of the man-written hadith (much of it was never even narrated by our Prophet [pbuh]), but are afraid of the reaction of the mainstream. We thank you again for the intro and may Allah Almighty reward you for your wisdom and accurate perception, ameen.

      We request you to kindly register again with the same ID. By mistake your previous registration was deleted as its notification somehow reached us prior to the introduction which we discovered later. We sincerely apologize for that. InshAllah, as soon as we receive your next registration with the same ID, we will approve it for membership here.

      Also do kindly check our boards "About us" and "Forum rules" for a better understanding of MV.

      Thank you again, and we apologize again for the deletion of the former registration.

    2. I just tried to register again sister and it says I am not allowed to register multiple accounts at the same time. No one but me uses my pc so I might have doubleclicked or something. I didn't rechieve a new welcome mail so I am unsure of if I have re-registered or not. I apologize for the inconvenience and I hope that you'll be able to find out if I re-registered.

    3. Unfortunately we've been having some technical issues with this forum lately. That's obviously the problem. The first registration was deleted, so there should not be any obstacles for re-registration even if you are using the same email address. Can you please try registering again with a slightly different ID? Or try registering after a gap of 24 hours. Really sorry about this. Just keep trying, eventually you'll get through, InshAllah.

      Delete
    4. I'll give it 24 hours first to see if it'll take this ID and if it still doesn't work I'll try with a different one. No need to be sorry, technology can be quite tricky sometimes. I look forward to be registered and until then I can read the posts and topics on the forum. It lifts my spirit to have found a place with likeminded people.

    5. Many thanks for your understanding, and appreciation of our forum, Sister. InshAllah
      you will be able to sign-in soon. And yes, in the meantime feel very welcomed to browse MV and read. Allah bless.

      Delete
  15. It did let me put in a registration request at last as Khadija_H. I hope you'll accept it. I have indeed been browsing MV and I especially liked the article, Effects of the Hadith on the Muslim Nation. I agree that it is deeply wrong to think that Ulama have monopoly regarding interpreting the Quran. Allah encourages thinking and reflection plenty of places in the Quran after all.
