Fiqh in Quran and Hadith

AlhamdulilLah, I benefited from yet another great lecture by Sheikh Riyadh ul Haq. This is part 1 of a series of 10 lectures:

Abdullah ibn Abbas, the scholar and sage of the entire Ummah and the interpreter of the Holy Quran, said that the Quran has 4 categories of tafseer (understanding):
1. a part of it can be understood by all even if they do not know hukum
2. a part of it can be understood by those fluent in Arabic language
    (note that Modern Standard Arabic differs alot from the Classical Arabic of the Quran)
3. a part of it can be understood by only the Aleem 'Ulama
4. a part of it can be understood by only Allah SWT

Truly, one cannot detach the Quran from the Hadith and is encouraged to seek the authoritative Aleem 'Ulama to help in correctly interpreting the revelation.
