Speaking to a large audience which consisted of mainly learned scholars, teachers, heads of departments including Vice Chancellor of Grand Al Azhar University, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said ”Without believing in the authority of all Hadith books (especially Sihah Sitta), we cannot understand, reject or challenge the authenticity of Hadith Books other than Bukhari and Muslims. Those who do so are actually misguided people. He said that the status of Hadith-in-Sahih and Daeef has been wrongly interpreted in the last century. It makes no difference to the status of Hadith weather it is mentioned in Bukhari or Muslims or not.

The Muslim community needs to rise above their narrow differences and forge unity and brotherhood in their ranks without any further loss of time otherwise they will continue to fall prey to internal and external conspiracies and will ultimately be eliminated from the face of earth. The only solution to sectarian differences among the Muslims is to comply with the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) both in letter and spirit.
