ONE GOD / ONE SOURCE

Our Almighty Creator commands that QURAN, specifically QURAN, SHALL BE THE ONLY SOURCE of religious teachings.

Furthermore, we are told that THE ACCEPTANCE OF ANY OTHER SOURCES for religious guidance equals the setting up of other gods beside GOD:

Say (O Muhammad), “Whose testimony is greater?” Say, “God is the witness between me and you that THIS QURAN was given to me to preach it to you, and to whomever it reaches.” However, you certainly bear witness that you set up other gods beside God (by upholding other sources beside Quran). Say, “I will never do what you are doing; I disown your idol-worship.” (6:19)

This profound verse, which happens to be verse [19] of Sura 6, enjoins the believers from upholding or following any other source beside Quran, and that doing this is equivalent to the setting up of other gods beside GOD.

ONE GOD / ONE SOURCE

In the strictest possible language, we are commanded to uphold Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but Quran.
Repeatedly, we are commanded to uphold Quran as the only source of religious guidance.

Again and again, we are reminded that the following of any other source beside Quran equals the setting up of other gods beside GOD.

Verses 22 through 38 of Sura 17 represent some of the most

important commandments in Quran. Immediately following these verses we find the verse shown below:

“This is some of the wisdom revealed to you (in this Quran), and YOU SHALL NOT SET UP ANY OTHER GOD BESIDE GOD (by following any other source beside Quran). Otherwise, you will be thrown into hell, blamed and debased.” (17:39)

Despite all these clear commandments and extremely strict injunctions, why do the followers of Hadith & Sunna fail to uphold the Quran alone?
