Question by Solomon Khan, Birmingham, UK, what are the criteria that make a DC e? What are the criteria,

00:00:09--> 00:00:11

there are basically five criteria for a D to be.

00:00:13--> 00:00:52

Number one, the narrator should be of good character, that means, you should be honest, he should be truthful, he should not lie, he should not cheat, he should be of good character, that is the first criteria. Number two, he should be a very good memory, so that he can repeat what he has heard of the Prophet, or contributor, Salah, it can also be that what he heard from the Prophet, he remember that, and he writes it down. And then if required, he can again read it, even that's accepted. The second category is the women should be very good. You can repeat it at any time or at least remember till the time he writes it.

00:00:54--> 00:01:03

The third criteria for audit to be say he is that there should be a continuous chain of narrators. There should be consistency.

00:01:04--> 00:01:21

I cannot say that I heard from my great grandfather, if my great grandfather died before I was born, how can I say I heard from my great grandfather. So there should be a continuous chain of knowledge all the narrator's are met each other and personally heard from them.

00:01:22--> 00:02:09

The fourth criteria is that they should not be any flaw. I'll give an example of a flaw that two contemporary narrators who lived at the same time if 110 of narrator said that narrator a hurt from A to B and according to the original the history, we know that these two narrator though they lived at the same time, but they never met. So, how can generate 100 leads from Narita B when they did not meet. So, this is a flaw, so, they should not be any flaw. And the fifth criteria for it to be say is that it should not contradict with any other sound or any other Hadith which is sound which if he if it contradicts then it is wrong. So, it should not contradict with any other sound or any other

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

theories or Asana D

00:02:12--> 00:02:33

So, there are basically five criteria for a D to be saved. Number one, the narrator should be of a good character number two have good memory number three, they should be continuing the chain of Narrator The fellas should be there. Number four, there should not be irregularities or flaws. Number five it should not contradict any other sound. If all the five criteria are met It is called si Hadith.

00:02:34--> 00:02:40

If there is a slight flaw in any of these, then has it become Hassan, but it is accepted.

00:02:41--> 00:02:42

It doesn't look good.
