The Ark of Truth II: Functional Hadith Literacy
Be initiated into the history of hadith preservation and the scholarly terminology for hadith criticism and authentication.
In a world that glorifies celebrities and mass entertainment, for people to be obsessed with the details of another person’s life should come as no surprise. Muslims bring that passion and commitment to the life of a man who is more dear to them than their own children, their family members and even their own selves. In fact, faith would demand nothing less. The study of ḥadīth is taking a step into the world of the statements, the actions, the words, the utterances, the vocabulary, the style, the life and the mannerisms of the Prophet Muḥammad, peace and blessings be upon him always.
