Course Format:
A 4 Weekend course under the auspicious guidance of Shaykh Abul Hasan Hussain Ahmed (hafizahullah). Students will be able to grasp the preliminary level of 'Ulum al Hadith/Mustalah al Hadith. The course will be on the similar level as Nukhbat al Fikar of Imam Ibn Hajar al 'Asqalani (rahimahullah) and with the availability of time the Shaykh will read the Nukhbat al Fikar with its complete chain back to Imam Ibn Hajar al 'Asqalani (rahimahullah) and the students who participate fully throughout the course will be granted an Ijaza to the text. An additional certificate will also be given to students who participate fully in the course insha'Allah.

For the benefit of all students, there will be comfortable seating arrangements with adequate sound/visual systems insha'Allah.

Some very special Musalsal Hadith may also be transmitted by the Shaykh on the last day with the availability of time and Ijaza to them may be given to those who fully participate in the course insha'Allah.
