ADV1617 Hadith Criticism and Fiqh Methodology of Tirmidhi

Module 1: Hadith Studies

Unit 2: Hadith Criticism and Fiqh Methodology of al-Tirmidhi

Overview

The second unit on Sunan al-Tirmidhi will further expand upon hidden defects of hadith by analysing the works of al-Daraqutni and others. Furthermore, al-Tirmidhi manages to bring together an incredible wealth of information about how the Companions, students of the Companions (tabi’un) and the early generations of scholars derived law from hadith, differed with some ahadith or reconciled between them. In this way, the student learns to appreciate the tools of analysis employed by the early generations when engaging with the hadith canon.

About the Text

The full title of the text is al-Jami’ al-Mukhtasar min al-Sunan al-Rasul Allah wa Ma’rifah al-Sahih wa al-Ma’lul wa ma ‘alayhi al-‘Amal. It is one of the six major hadith collections. It was collected by Abu ‘Isa Muhammad ibn ‘Isa al-Tirmidhi. He began compiling it after the year 250 AH and completed it on 10th Dhu al-Hijjah 270 AH. It contains 3,956 hadith, and has been divided into fifty chapters. It is also classified as a Sunan, which implies that the book has been divided into chapters according to their legal subject, such as purification, prayer etc. The work is an extraordinary collection of hadith relating to legal rulings (ahkam) and how isnads are to be analysed for hidden defects (‘illah), which are sometimes explicitly mentioned by al-Tirmidhi and sometimes not. The compiler’s principal aim was to discuss the legal opinions of the early jurists. Al-Tirmidhi mostly mentioned those hadith which the jurists used as the basis for their legal decisions and he mentioned which school used which traditions. Hence this book became an important source for the different opinions of the various legal schools.
