Indeed I can - and I'm not Sunni, but my rejection of certain Hadith is not based upon Secularism or Westernism, although I have to accept the fact that I am influenced or affected, to some degree, by the culture I am raised in - as are my Eastern Brothers & Sisters. Many of my beliefs & practices do not jive with Secularism or Westernism. You are correct, I'd have some trouble in certain "Muslim Countries". I've had a bit in some circles here, but I'm still active in my Community - doesn't matter. I believe my rejection of some (not most) Hadith is mostly based upon a desire to be in line as much as I can with Quran. If it seems to contradict Quran - I'm not with it. Generations of social & family pressure do not figure into my approach to and perception of Islam. I've certainly been accused of being "poisoned by the West", and I'm not messed up about that - maybe I am a little - but maybe the same can be said for those of the East? Aside from sometimes not corresponding with Quran, there are other reasons to be very cautious about Hadith - here is an example: Narrated by Abu Huraira "The Prophet said 'The best chairity is that which is given while one is rich and a giving hand is better than a taking one, and you should start first to support those who depend on you - a Wife says 'you should either provide me with food or divorce me' a slave says 'you give me food and enjoy my service' a son says 'give me food, to whom do you leave me?'". The people asked "O Abu Huraira! Did you hear that from The Measenger of Allah?" and he said "No, it is from my pocket". (Sahih Bukhari vol 7) This is an account about a person, who transmitted over 5000 Hadith of The Prophet, admitting he fabricated a Hadith, and this is included in what is considered by most Muslims to be the most authentic collection Hadith.
