Both Quran and Hadith have been transferred through memory and writings generation after generations.The problem with Ghamdi sahib and his followers is that they get information of sunnah from acts of muslim generations where as rest of Ummah get information of sunnah from books of Hadiths like Bukharee Muslim etc and rectify any mistake in actions by comparing them with books of sunnah and hadith .Where as Mr Ghamdi and his followers give authority to acts of muslims and ignore hadiths which are real source of sunnah for us.This mistake is confusing muslim Ummah .This idealogy does not have any roots in Islamic history .How acts of ummatees can supercede sayings actions and permissions of Holy prophet.If Hadith is authentic it cannot be denied or refuted by acts of groups of Muslims.Moreover different groups of Muslims have differences in methods of offereing salah and doing Hajj.How the act of any group can be given peference on acts of other groups all these things will be rectified in light of Sahih hadith?If the human wisdom and acts of Muslims are decisive factor for us than how can we say that Rasool salal laho aliehi wasalam is role model for us.The leadership of Rasool salal laho aliehi wasalam cannot be challenged and he is the authority and yardstick for us in all affairs of life.

Some critics may say that Quran is protected by Allah swt but hadith is not like that similarly some hadiths are weak where as Quran is not like that.The answer to this objection is that

Quran is word of Allah swt.False claims about words of Allah swt have been made even after revelation of Quran like claims of Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani and Baha ullah but those claims are invalid and are rejected .Similarly some false claims about sayings of Rasool salal laho aliiehi wasalam have also been made but they donot affect authenticity of sahih hadith.Sahih Hadith means sayings of Rasool salal laho aliehi wasalam and it is bayan or explanation of Quran and any saying which is accurately proved to be sayings of Rasool salal laho aliehi wasalam is as preserved as Quran itself .When Allah said in Quran

Verily We: It is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (i.e. the Qur'ân) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption). (Al-Hijr 15:9) it does not mean that this protection is limited to words of Quran .This protection encompasses protection of text compilation and explanation Quran tells us in surah Qiyamah that its compilation,recitation and explanation is responsibility of ALLAH swt

It is for Us to collect it and to give you (O Muhammad SAW) the ability to recite it (the Qur'ân), (Al-Qiyamah 75:17)

And when We have recited it to you [O Muhammad SAW through Jibrael (Gabriel)], then follow you its (the Qur'ân's) recital. (Al-Qiyamah 75:18)Then it is on Us (Allâh) to explain it, (Al-Qiyamah 75:19)

Who collected?Who recited?Who explained.Answer is one .He was prophet salal laho aliehi wasalam.So text of Quran, all the seven recitations and hadiths are equally preserved alhamdolillah.The miraculous method of preservation of Quran is that it has been memorised for generation .It can be easily observed that this miraculous way of protection is also applicable on hadith.There have been hundereds of huffaz of hadith in every generation of Muslims
