Abu Bakr ibn Muhammad ibn Hazm

Abu Bakr ibn Muhammad ibn Hazm (Arabic: أبو بكر بن محمد بن حزم‎) (died 120/737) was an 8th-century Sunni Islamic scholar based in Madinah.[1]

He is among those who compiled hadiths at Umar II’s behest.[2] Umar asked him to write down all the hadiths he could learn in Madinah from 'Amra bint 'Abd al-Rahman, who was at the time the most respected scholar of hadiths narrated by Aisha.[3]

Abu Bakr (name)

Abu Bakr (Arabic: أبو بكر‎) was a sahabi, one of the companions of Muhammad and the first Caliph of Sunni Islam. He was also Muhammad's father-in-law through Aisha. His real name was Abdullah or Abul-Kaaba and Abu Bakr was his kunya.

The name, meaning "young camel", is widely used by Sunni Muslims. Other transliterations include Abu Bakar, Abu Bekr, Ebubekir, Aboubacar, etc. The two parts of the name can be written together, hyphenated, or separately.

Muhammad (name)

Muhammad (Arabic: محمد‎) is the primary transliteration of the Arabic given name مُحَمَّد that comes from the passive participle of the Arabic verb ḥammada (حَمَّدَ), praise, which comes from the triconsonantal root Ḥ-M-D. The word can therefore be translated as "praised, commendable, laudable".


Quranism (Arabic: القرآنية‎; al-Qur'āniyya) describes any form of Islam that accepts the Quran as the only sacred text through which God revealed himself to humankind, but rejects the religious authority, reliability, and/or authenticity of the Hadith collections. They believe that God's message in the Quran is clear and complete as it is, and that it can therefore be fully understood without referencing the Hadith. Quranists affirm that the Hadith literature which exists today is apocryphal, as it had been written three centuries after the death of the Islamic prophet Muhammad; thus, it cannot have the same status as the Quran.

Quran alone Islam is similar to movements in Abrahamic religions such as the Karaite movement in Judaism and the Sola scriptura view of Protestant Christianity.

Umar II

Umar ibn Abd al-Aziz or Omar ibn Abd al-Aziz (2 November 682 (26th Safar, 63 AH) – February 720 (16th Rajab, 101 AH)) (Arabic: عمر بن عبد العزيز‎, translit. ʿUmar ibn ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz) was an Umayyad caliph who ruled from 717 to 720. He was also a cousin of the former caliph, being the son of Abd al-Malik's younger brother, Abd al-Aziz. He was also a matrilineal great-grandson of the second caliph Umar ibn Al-Khattab.
