The Qur’an is a book the verses of which are communicated to us by the Last Prophet of Islam, Muhammad Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam and not by anybody else. To believe it to be the book of Allah is BELIEVING IN THE WORDS OF THE PROPHET and then following what is written in the Qur’an is following the Prophet. Allah didnot direct us directly but his orders came through Rasulullah , therefore following Qur’an is following the Prophet and thus it is following Allah. Believing in the Qur’an and taking hidayat only from it represents one’s firm belief in the words & instructions of the Prophet. As far as hidayat is concerned i.e as far as the ways to save ourselves from the fire of the Hell is concerned, as far as the Qur’an is concerned , it is a complete and a clear Book with all examples and no other things can make it easier to understand or make it more clear.
The Prophet PBUH made it to be written during his lifetime and left it for us and Allah has made it secured. Prophet did not take the responsibility of the Books of Hadiths to be written down in his lifetime and neither left any instruction in the Qur’an to get it done later. Even Allah did not take the responsibility of the security of the Books of Hadiths.
The following verses and many other from the Qur’an prove that Rasulullah did not explain Qur’an but warned people by repeating its verses and did not innovate anything in the name of his Sunnah but rather followed the Book and was asked by Allah to follow His instructions as in the Book strictly.These are the certified & secured Statements of Allah. I could have cited many more verses but that would lengthen this article.

“ It is a Qur’an in Arabic without any crookedness therein in order that they may guard against Evil, Allah puts a Parable—A man believing to many partners at variance with each other and a man believing to one master: are those equal in comparison ?
