Introduction to Hadith, including Dirayat al-Hadith by Shahid al-Thani (First and Second edition)

Publisher: ICAS PRESS
$22.00

The study of the origins, development and criticism of Hadith Literature, as we have it today, is essential in determining the extensive source of information about the history of pre-Islamic Arabia, early Islam, the development of Arabic literature and Islamic Law, as well as serving as a source of legislation for the Muslim world. The science is also very useful in providing insight into the thought processes and endeavors of Islamic scholars, as well as to the many key theological, political and cultural movements that developed throughout the ages. It treats the subject of Hadith from all its different perspectives, such as the historical beginnings of the science, the onset of Hadith literature, compilation of Hadith works, the terminology and methodology within the science itself, authenticity and weakness of traditions, and the whole phenomenon of fabrication, to mention but a few of the topics elaborated in this work. The views of both classical as well as modern scholars are portrayed, resulting in an effective overview of the science of Hadith. This same publication also includes a translation of the oldest Shi‘a Ithna ‘Ashari text written on the science and contextual study of Hadith – Dirayat al-Hadith – by the renowned tenth-century scholar and jurist al-Shahid al-Thani. This is a short treatise on the science of Hadith, which although brief in length, was a pioneering and essential work of its time, by virtue of which this science came to be recorded in the first place, and which paved the way for all other works to come.

'Abd al-Hadi al-Fadli (1935-) was born in Basra, Iraq. He studied traditional sciences at the theological seminary in Najaf and later received his doctorate in Arabic literature from Cairo University. A renowned educator, al-Fadli has taught at various universities and seminaries in the Muslim world and was one of the first Muslim scholars to take up the challenge of writing modern textbooks on traditional Islamic sciences, including his famous textbook on logic, Khulasat al-Mantiq.

Al-Shahid al-Thani was born in 911 AH and executed in 966 AH. He was dedicated to Islamic scholarship, devoting his life to the study of jurisprudence, philosophy, medicine and astronomy. His most famous work is the commentary on al-Lum‘ah, still a part of the curriculum in almost every Shi‘a educational institution.
