INT-11617 Study of Evidences of the Sunnah (Al-Ihkam) [Year One]

Module 2: Hadith Studies

Unit 1: Study of Evidences of the Sunnah
Seminar: Index of the Major Hadith Collections

Overview

The Study of Evidences of the Sunnah is the study of the hadith of ahkam (rulings). It is a sub-genre of hadith studies, encompassing a specific collection of ahadith pertaining to legal rulings. Historically, scholars of different schools of law have written different texts to justify, defend, or provide evidence for the particular school of thought to which they may adhere. Two classical examples can be found in the Shafi’i text, ‘Bulugh al-Maram’ by ibn Hajr al-Asqalani (d. 852 A.H.), and in the Hanbali treatise of ‘Umdat al-Ahkam by ‘Abd al-Ghani al-Maqdasi (d. 600 A.H.)

Primary Text

Al-Ihkam

About the Text

The full name of the text is: Al-Ihkam li al-Mujma’ ‘alayhi min Ahadith al-Ahkam. This anthology is a collection of the hadith narrations pertaining to legal rulings agreed upon by the four schools of thought. The text is unique in that it draws solely upon the hadith narrations agreed upon by Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim, enabling students to study a definite collection of evidences in a non-biased and impartial manner. The wordings used for these hadith are those that are found in Sahih al-Bukhari.
