A person who rejects the Hadith

Q: Is a follower or believer of the group or sect USI ( United Submitters International) a group founded by Rashad Khalifa an Egyptian native in the USA still in the fold of Islam or is he out of the fold of Islam? They believe primarily only in Quran though having their own English interpretation. They have no regard for sunnah and Hadith describing it as innovation and tradition contrary to the teachings of Quran. Would Nikkah to such a follower or believer be valid? Please give a detailed clarification and reasons for such. Urgent response much appreciated.

A: A person who does not believe in the hadeeth altogether is not a muslim, he is something else.

When he is not a muslim how can the nikaah be valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
