Understanding The Science of Hadith

The Classification of Hadith (al-Mustalah al-Hadith)

The Companions of the Prophet (upon whom be peace) struggled relentlessly to gather the sayings of the Prophet. They traversed immense distances, underwent untold hardships and visited strange lands with the sole intention of preserving the second most important source of the religion of Islam after the Quran, the Sunnah – the traditions of the Prophet.

Learn how Allah preserved this Deen through the preservation of the chains of narration – al-Sanad.

Imam Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak mentions: ‘That if it was not for the Sanad any one who pleases would have said whatever he pleases’.

The Primary topic of focus is about the classical hadith classifications of our scholars and the differing ways in which they have viewed the sanad and practically implementing the saying of the Prophet (upon whom be peace) : ‘Whom so ever lies in regard to what I have said let him take his place in the hellfire’ (al-Bukhari and Muslim).

Learn how the hadith of the Prophet (PBUH) are incorporated into the classical four schools of law (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi & Hanbali).
