Riyadh is a Muslim Qurani Sheikh. The Qurani community believes only in what’s written in the Quran and they don’t believe in the Hadith, so they don’t believe in the necessity to attack Jews. He says that it’s written in the Quran that the Jewish people are the chosen people, and that they have a divine right for the land of Israel, as the prophetic words uttered 1500 years ago, when it was predicted that the territory of the Kingdom of Greater Israel would be from Iraq to Egypt, the Temple would be built, the Messiah would come, and redemption would emerge from Israel. Before the establishment of the State of Israel, when the Jews were dispersed, it was hard for people to believe it would happen, but the prophecy began to be fulfilled in ’48, when the state of Israel was established. He also speaks about his grandfather, who was a Mufti and came to Israel due to the prophecy. His grandfather was a Muslim commentator and an arbiter, and he assigned him to be his successor.
I quote about Quranism from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quranism
Quranism (Arabic: القرآنية; al-Qur’āniyya) describes any form of Islam that accepts the Quran as scripture, but rejects the religious authority of the Hadith, which all other Muslims consider to be essential for understanding Islam. Quranists follow the Quran alone. They believe that its message is clear and complete, and that it can therefore be fully understood without referencing the Hadith.
Quranism is not a denomination; it is not defined by what it believes, but rather what it rejects. It is often described as anti-Hadith by its opponents, and Quranism is just a positive alternative to that name. There are significant differences between Quranists in their interpretation of Islam.
Quranism is similar to movements in other religions such as the Karaite movement of Judaism and the Sola scriptura view of Christianity. Hadith rejection has also been associated with Muslim modernists.
