What is the ruling upon the one who rejects the ahadeeth which are aahaad?

What is the ruling upon the person who rejects the Punishment of the Grave with the argument that they (ie the Ahadeeth which occur with regards to the Punishment of the Grave) are Ahadeeth Aahaad – and that the Aahaad are without exception not to be taken from? And they do not look at the hadeeth (being) saheeh or hasan or daeef, but they look at it from the aspect of its 1)being aahaad or 2) being narrated through different routes. So when they find it to be an aahaad hadeeth, they do not take from it. What is the refutation of them?

All praise is for Allaah and may peace and blessings be upon His Messenger and his family and his Companions…

To proceed: if an aahaad hadeeth is authentically established from the Prophet sal Allaahu alaiyhi wa sallam then it constitutes a proof for that matter which it indicates, in belief and in action, according to the consensus of the Ahl us Sunnah.

And whoever rejects the use of aahaad Ahadeeth as proof after the hujjah (proof) has been established upon him, then he is a kaafir (disbeliever). And refer to the ‘Kitaab us sawaa’iq’ of Ibn ul Qayyim or to its summary by al Mawsilee.

And with Allaah is the tawfeeq. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and Companions.
