Theory of Abrogation
As-Salamu `alaykum. I am sad to say that this is the first time that I have read the Qur’an, and I am reading it in English, so I am a little confused about something... I am only in the seventh surah and already I have read two verses that are said to have been ’abrogated’, ’cancelled’ or ’amended.’ Why, and how did the commentators/interpreters come to the conclusion that these verses were to be cancelled due to other verses? I find it hard to believe that anything in the Qur’an needs to be amended or cancelled! Could you please shed some light on this topic? Thank you.
hi, i have a question regarding abrogation. according to numerous hadith, especially one in bukhari the verses of stoning were originally in the Quran, they were then removed and cancelled. does this not mean the Quran is not complete as i have been told my whole life. is this type of abrogation recitation cancelled ruling remains just a way of muslim scholars hiding the fact the Quran is incomplete. should we reject this hadith because it contradicts the Quran?
