Quranism (Arabic: Qurniyn) is a denomination of Islam that holds the Qur'an to be the only canonical text in Islam. Quranists reject the religious authority of Hadith, libraries compiled by later scholars who catalogued narratives of what the Prophet Muhammad is reported to have said and done. This is in contrast to mainstream Muslims who consider hadith essential for the Islamic faith.Quranism is similar to movements in other religions such as Karaite Judaism and the Sola scriptura.

Islam relies on three sources for the sharia, or religious law: the Qur'an, which is the primary source since Muslims consider it the revealed word of God/Allah; the Hadith, which are the sayings of the prophet Muhammad on matters of faith and life as remembered by his contemporaries; and the Sunnah, which are commentaries on the Qur'an and Hadith by Islamic scholars and jurists in the first century of Islam. Sunnis believe that the entire basis for the law then closed. Shiites believe that the Sunnah can continue to be interpreted. The Old Testament does not have a direct impact on Islamic beliefs, but parts of the Old and New Testament are contained in the Qur'an
