In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Imam Muslim took painstaking efforts in preserving the words/actions/sayings & approvals of the Prophet. He has mostly used 4-5 narrators in the chain of transmission although there are a couple of hadith containing 3 narrators.

200 Golden Hadiths



Author: Abdul Malik Mujahid | Pages: 128 | Size: 44mb

Islam is based on two major sources: the Qur'an and the Sunnah, and the latter is available to us in the form of hadiths. The Prophet (S) said,"Whoever comes to know one hadith of mine should spread it." I have come to the realization that many youth from among the Muslims have not memorized even one hadith of the Prophet (S). For this reason I have chosen smaller hadiths so that they can be easily memorized by them and they can spread them to others.




An Introduction to the Sciences of Hadith



Author: Ibn al-Salah al-Shahrazuri | Pages: 315 | Size: 19 MB

After the Qur'an itself, the hadith of the Prophet Muhammad form the most important foundation of Islamic thought. The hadith were accounts -- usually brief -- of the words and actions of the Prophet. As such, they were subjected to intense scrutiny by generations of Muslim scholars. Better known as the Muqaddimah, Ibn al-Salah (1181-1245) composed this work while serving as the head of the Dar al-Hadith al-Ashrafiya in Damascus, one of the most prestigious institutions for the study of hadith in the Islamic world. Here he provides a complete overview of the science devoted to the study of the words and actions of the Prophet Muhammad, and also a guide to the terminology and techniques of the scholars of hadith as it summarizes most of the previous work on the subject and forms the basis of almost all later activity in the field. The book enjoyed immense popularity and influenced most subsequent writing on the subject.

An Introduction to the Sciences of Hadith



Author: Suhayb Hasan | Pages: 40 | Size: 1 MB

We publish this short treatise on "the science of Hadith" by the learned Suhaib Hasan with English readers in mind. It is part of our scheme to introduce various aspects of Islam to English readers. May Allah accept it as a good work.

Rules Governing The Criticism Of Hadith



Author: Dr Mahmoud At-Tahhaan | Pages: 22 | Size: 1 MB

An summarised text detailing the rules governing the Criticism of Hadeeth. From its introduction -'A hadith (pl. ahadith) is composed of two parts: the matn (text) and the isnad (chain of reporters). A text may seem to be logical and reasonable but it needs an authentic isnad with reliable reporters to be acceptable; 'Abdullah b. al-Mubarak (d. 181 AH) is reported to have said, "The isnad is part of the religion: had it not been for the isnad, whoever wished to would have said whatever he liked." During the lifetime of the Prophet (SAS) and after his death, his Companions (Sahabah) used to refer to him when quoting his sayings. The Successors (Tabi'un) followed suit; some of them used to quote the Prophet (SAS) through the Companions while others would omit the intermediate authority - such a hadith was known as mursal (loose). It was found that the missing link between the Successor and the Prophet (SAS) might be one person, i.e. a Companion, or two persons, the extra person being an older Successor who heard the hadith from the Companion.'

The Ghurabah



Author: Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbali | Pages: 23 | Size: 1 MB

This book is a translation of a short treatise entitled Kashf-ul-Kurbah fee wasfi Haali Ahlil-Ghurbah, or Alleviating Grievances in Describing the Condition of the Strangers, written by the great Imaam, Al- Haafidh Zayn-ud-Deen Ibn Rajab Al-Hanbalee, rahimahullaah. In this treatise, Ibn Rajab deals with the topic of the Strangers, or Al-Ghurabaa. He begins by listing the many ahaadeeth reported about them, in which the Messenger of Allaah describes their attributes and explains their position. They are given this name because they will be strange during the Last Days, due to their adherence to the Sunnah and to the Way of the First Muslims, the Salaf As-Saalih. So just as those who first accepted Islaam at the hands of Muhammad (saws) were considered strangers with their families and close ones, then indeed, those who adhere to the Sunnah in the last Days, when innovations and misguidance are rampant and widespread, will also be considered strangers amidst their families and close ones, not to mention the disbelievers.

Chain of Command - Sciences of Hadith (Notes)



"Imagine a day. A day when all Hadith had been forgotten. No recollection of tears shed in prayer, nor swollen feet. No memory of 'Aishah, nor Anas nor Abu Hurayrah. No knowledge of the actions of pilgrimage or prayer. No mention of the Ummah that learned at the Prophet's feet. Not its questions, not his answers, nor their toil. Blueprints for the future...forgotten and buried in the past. Thank Allah. For that dark day never came. True, there have been days of neglect and days of confusion. But the hadeeth never vanished. For the Hadeeth had its keepers. They were scholars who kept alive the authentic traditions of the Prophet, Sal Allaahu 'alayhi Wa Sallam. They were the Muhaddeeths, and Mustalah was their art. "




Selected ahaadeeth from 'Saheeh al-Jaami'


Al-Imaam as-Suyooti (may Allaah have mercy on him) originally had a collection of hadeeth called 'al-Jaami' as-Sagheer min Hadeeth al-Basheer an-Nadheer' (The Small Collection of the Sayings of the Giver of Glad Tidings, the Warner).
