Please note this is an online course

Module 6: Principles of Prophetic Traditions

Unit 1: Principles of Prophetic Traditions
Seminar: Introduction to Hadith Classification and Nomenclature
Tutorial: Principles of Prophetic Traditions

Overview

Studying the principles of hadith terminology and criticism is a major component of hadith studies (ulum al-hadith). The goal of the course is to assist students in becoming acquainted with the most important terms in hadith criticism, and to gain a practical understanding of what these terms mean when applied in hadith analysis and isnad criticism.

Primary Text

Turfat al-Turaf

About the Text

The text, also known as Manzumat Alqab al-Hadith, is a fifty verse rhyme written by the great North African scholar Abu ‘Abdullah Muhammad al-Fasi. The poem introduces the most important terminology in hadith sciences in a systematic and structured way. The text itself has been popular in North Africa for centuries, and is a superior introductory text than the more famous Sharqi text, al-Bayquniyya.

About the Author

Abu Abdullah Muhammad al-Arabi ibn Abu al-Mahasin al-FasI came from a family of great scholars and ascetics whose origins can be traced to Al-Andalus. Born in Fes, he began studying the Islamic sciences at the age of 4, and studied with his father as well as all the great scholars of Qarawiyyin. He wrote numerous works on diverse topics such as Arabic grammar, theology, hadith, genealogy, prophetic history, logic, poetry and more. He travelled widely in rural areas to teach people the sciences of the religion. In one of those trips he eventually fell ill and died in Tetouan in 1052 A.H./1642 C.E.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this module students should be able to:

  • Describe the difference between hadith and Sunnah
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the different phases in the collating of hadith literature in the first three centuries of Islam
  • Evaluate the methods used to classify hadith
