  • Principles of Understanding the Hadīth


      Ahadith (plural of Hadith) are narratives which record the words, deeds and tacit approvals of the Prophet Muhammad (sws). They are mostly akhbar-i ahad (isolate reports). It is absolutely evident that they do not add to the contents of religion stated in the Qur’an and Sunnah. In technical terms, they do not add any article of fai

  • Chain of Narration of a Hadīth


      It is the chain of narration of a narrative which makes it a Hadith that can be attributed to the Prophet (sws). In addition to any hidden flaws in the chain of narration of a Hadith (‘ilal), the probity of the narrators (‘adl),[1] their grasp and memory (dabt) and their contempor

  • Text of a Hadīth


      After investigating the chain of narration of a Hadith, the second thing which requires investigation is the text of a Hadith. Although scholars of Hadith have left no stone unturned in investigating the characters and biographies of the narrators and have spent a greater part of their lives in this research, yet like every human endeavo

  • Literary Appreciation of the Arabic Language


      Just as the Qur’an has been revealed in highly literary Arabic, the language of the Hadith too is highly literary Arabic.

  • Interpretation in the Light of the Qur’ān


      The Hadith should be interpreted in the light of the Qur’an. The status occupied by the Qur’an has already been alluded to earlier. It is the most definite and authentic record of whatever Muhammad (sws) did in his status of a Prophet and a Messenger. Consequently, most topics covered in the Hadith are related to the Qur&rsqu

  • Understanding the Occasion of the Hadīth


      A Hadith must be understood with reference to the instance and occasion of the topic it records. What was the occasion on which it was said? What was the background in which it was said? Who were the addressees? If one does not address these questions in interpreting a Hadith, on many occasions, one fails to get to the right interpretati

  • Analysis of all the Variant Texts


      All the variant texts of a Hadith must be studied in order to form an opinion about it. Many a time, a person may form an opinion about a Hadith by not studying its variants; however, once he deliberates on all the variants his overall interpretation changes. One glaring example of this is the Ahadith which mention the prohibition of pic

  • Reason and Revelation


      It must be appreciated that reason and revelation never contradict. Earlier on, while explaining the principles of acceptance or rejection of a Hadith, it has been explained that religion is based on universally established facts derived from knowledge and reason, and if a Hadith appears to be contradicting these established facts, then
