So don't want to come to LA he or a Gatto.

00:00:15--> 00:00:16

My writings

00:00:17--> 00:00:20

of the 21st century, they include

00:00:21--> 00:00:22

this book

00:00:24--> 00:00:26

also, Al Hadith,

00:00:29--> 00:00:32

the methodology of Hadith evaluation.

00:00:34--> 00:00:46

This is among the books which I prepared for the Islamic Studies, course Bachelors of Arts in Islamic studies

00:00:47--> 00:00:51

to make sure that the various areas of learning

00:00:52--> 00:01:18

which needed to be covered, were in fact, covered, like or solid tafsir. Also Hadith deals with Hadith from a variety of different perspectives, including those who claim that hadith are invalid, cannot be relied upon, or heresy, etc. All of that is covered,

00:01:20--> 00:01:25

as well as the evidence for the reliability of Hadith.

00:01:26--> 00:02:00

And not distinguishing, differentiating between a had Hadith and not Awatere, Hadith etc. From the perspective of accuracy and evidence, as well as how to authenticate Hadith, how to research them, what books to look for, what to be expected from these books, etc. narrators, what makes our narrator weak or unreliable, etcetera, etcetera, which makes whatever he narrates, also weak.

00:02:01--> 00:02:13

All of that is compiled and organized and presented in this work called posole Hadith, it has been reprinted

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

in hardback

00:02:16--> 00:02:20

by the International Islamic publishing house

00:02:21--> 00:02:44

with this design, and inshallah it is readily available, and is being used in different universities, teaching in English medium, in different parts of the world. And it was something that I had wanted to do from a long time before because the area of Hadith of course, is a critical area.

00:02:46--> 00:02:51

It's what determines what is Islam and what isn't Islam to a large degree.

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

So this area did need

00:02:57--> 00:03:00

writing, which would and could

00:03:02--> 00:03:23

convince those who had doubts with regards to Hadith, whether authentic hadith, or in authentic hadith, why they're classified in these different ways. And also, it becomes the foundation for understanding authentic Islam.

00:03:25--> 00:03:52

Because where Islamic practices are based on in authentic hadith, fabricated, weak to the point of inaccurate, if we're not able to clear away that material, then what we end up with is hearsay and practice which varies from place to place, person to person,

00:03:53--> 00:04:17

confusion in the OMA. So one of the key areas that needs to be understood and applied is the area of Hadith. And especially with some individuals calling for only depending on the Quran, they are called Quran Yun.

00:04:18--> 00:04:23

purveys is other names for them. They only follow the crime they reject the Sunnah altogether,

00:04:24--> 00:04:35

but this is misguidance and deviation. So a text of this nature and texts of this nature need to be available. Some have been written.

00:04:36--> 00:04:37

This is not the first

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

perhaps it brings in areas that the others don't. But the core depending on classical works done in the area of the sciences, as well as more modern a few modern works which were done

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

In this area, especially

00:05:04--> 00:05:10

Dr. Mustafa Alamy, whose work on Hadith literature

00:05:12--> 00:05:33

was unparalleled. His conclusions and evidences I have included in this work in order to make it as comprehensive as possible for such a small work. It's over 200 pages, but small in comparison to

00:05:35--> 00:05:41

what Dr. Adam II did it which was hundreds and hundreds of pages.

00:05:43--> 00:05:54

Nonetheless, it is useful for teaching the basic first level 101 Hadith 101

00:05:55--> 00:06:01
