Quranism (Arabic: القرآنية‎; al-Qur'āniyya) is the belief that the Quran is the only source for Islam.[1] Followers of the group are called Quranist Muslims, or Quran alone Muslims or Quraniyoon. Quranists reject the Hadiths as they believe 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.[1]
