The legacy of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), his sayings, actions and tacit approval/disapproval remains in the hearts of millions of Muslims around the world today. His pure example is practiced across the globe by people of all colours, cultures and races. The codification of Shari’ah (Islamic Law) is based primarily on the Qur’an followed by the Ahadith (Traditions) of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).
The science of Hadith extends more than a millennium and is not an effortless science to Master. There are many branches within it which further divide into sub-branches, which goes to show the intricacy and ardour of scholars throughout the ages, who have dedicated their lives in the preservation of the Prophetic Traditions.
In this audio compilation, Shaykh Abul Hasan Hussain Ahmed (hafidhahullah) has illustrated an oral introduction to the Science of Hadith. The keen student will get to grasp the basic preliminary level of ‘Ulum al-Hadith with the aid of an attached PDF file entitled “coursepack.pdf”. The course is on parity to that of the 8th century Imam Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani’s work “Nukhbat al-Fikar”.
