The Farewell Sermon (as it is also known) can be found in all the major biographies of the prophet Mohammad such as "Al Seerah Annabawiyah" by Ibn Hisham. The second link isn't saying that the sermon itself is fake, rather that the translation quoted in the article is erroneous and skewed. And in a way, they are right. “All mankind is from Adam and Eve, ...

First let me address your concern about claims that Shia hadith books are not reliable. Quiet conversely, Shia hadiths are generally more reliable for some reasons among which are these two: Shia believes in the Isma of their twelve Imams (a.s), and have received the authentic hadiths of the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) from the Imams for more than 250 years ...

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم I think you'd better say: " Why did not Allah send his last prophet, Mohammad (S), at first? then I will tell you that, as you know, Allah has gradually developed Islam since the advent of Adam (s). The more the people were growing and the more aspects of their lives needed to be explained and reformed, the Almighty Allah sent his ...

As you mentioned, Riyad-us-Saliheen is compilation of hadiths by Imam An-Nawawi, a great scholar of Hadith and fiqh. He is known for such compilations like 40 Hadeeth by An-Nawawi, 40 Hadith Qudsi etc. Riyad-us-Saliheen is a popular and useful compilation because of its classification based on wide range of topics. It serves as a hadith primer. It has ...

The terminology used differs by region. The majority of scholars use the term hadith to describe any such narration that either quotes a speech, describes an action, or documents an approval by either the Prophet ﷺ or any of his companions. When it is a hadith attributed to the Prophet ﷺ, it is called marfū' (Arabic: مرفوع). When it is a hadith attributed ...

The original author is Imam as-Suyuti who wrote a book titled "Al-Jami` as-Saghir." Shaykh al-Albani the muhaddith investigated the hadith in this book and added some more and wrote "Sahih wa Da`if Al-Jami` as-Saghir wa Ziyadatuh" and marked the Sahih and Hasan ahadith from other kinds. The hadith you quoted is indeed number 6040 in the Sahih portion of the ...

There are indeed a few modern attempts to compile tafssir books where the mufassirin have tried to comment the verses according the order of their revelation. The most detailed and maybe the only one made by a theologian is that one made by the former sghari'a qadi abdulqadar Molahwich aal Ghazi al-Furati العلامة عبد القادر ملاحويش آل غازى الفراتي in six ...

They are generally called Athar [أثر]. Hadith: this term is used for any report of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) like his saying, action, tacit approval, manners, physical attributes etc. Athar: this term is used for what is narrated from the Companions/sahabas(ra) and their followers and this narration does not have any mention of the Prophet (...

The Christian Bible has no single date of authorship. Much of the Bible is the Old Testament: i.e. pre-Christian Jewish scripture. This clearly existed long before the time of Muhammad. The various books of the New Testament also have different dates. Re: The bible was written 300 years or so after Jesus (pbuh) That is an over-simplification; even the ...

Gaining knowledge has many venues, including learning through a teacher (sheikh, Arabic: شيخ) or from books without a teacher. The common point of any method is to ensure that the source (let that be a teacher or a book) is a valid one as Ibn Sirīn said: إِنَّ هَذَا الْعِلْمَ دِينٌ فَانْظُرُوا عَمَّنْ تَأْخُذُونَ دِينَكُمْ Indeed this knowledge is ...

I am not sure if there is a comprehensive list documented, or even if the full manuscript of any of the books below is available: Al-Kuna wa al-Asmā' is organized alphabetically, with each letter having its own chapter (very similar to Al-Bukhari's book with a similar title, but with Imam Muslim's views), which is used in biographical evaluations (Arabic: ...

I guess you are referring to Naqd Assāss at-Taqdīs, rather than Naqd at-Ta'sīs. I do not have an account on this site, so I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the copy posted there. Note that: This book was written in two large volumes, but only a small portion of the book is preserved in manuscripts, out of which only a smaller portion is in print. ...

About any hadith collection that has been entitled al-Musnad المسند or al-Mo'jam المعجم meets the desired conditions. As Musnad means a book arranged in chapters or sections that quote ahadith of the same Sahabi () with no special order. And a Mo'jam is about the same but the arrangement is in an alphabetical order, but it must not necessary be for the ...

There is no English translation of Minhaj al-Qasidin wa Mufid al-Sadiqin (Arabic: منهاج القاصدين ومفيد الصادقين) as the Arabic version is not available in the first place. This book was lost long time ago, but I have heard that, for the first time, a Syrian publisher has distributed the book in Arabic, based on an old version found in Turkey. I have not seen ...

According to the Quran, the Jewish and Christian tribes in the Arabian Peninsula did not have the compilation of scriptures known as the Bible in any form. What they did have were 2 scrolls; the Torah and the Injil. The Torah is a scroll of laws revealed to Musa (as) and the Injil (one injil) contained the revelations to Isa (as). Allah (swt) mentions that ...

There is this book titled Al-Muhaddithat: The Women Scholars in Islam by Mohammad Akram Nadwi that provides details of several women narrators, transmitters and scholars of hadith as well as jurists and experts through various periods of time. I am not sure if it lists any original works solely attributed to women but it has examples of women collaborating ...

As St. John of Damascus was calling Islam and Muslims heretics or a heresy and he considered Muhammad () a false Prophet and his book (meaning the Quran) etc. a lie and made fun of him. I must assume that the story of the camel which was referred too is verse (7:40) which as far as I learnt from a Coptic Scholar is more or less word by word present in the ...

This seems to be a digitized version of the translation published by Dar us Salam, a scanned copy of which is present at archive.org here and here. This translation is abridged, the translators fully translated some parts and they have summarized some things and omitted others.

I do not know that in any specific chain of narration that it can be said with a high degree of certainty who Imam Malik was referring to. Worth noting is that it was not only Imam Malik who used the terms "I was told by the one I trusted" (Arabic: حدثني الثقة) or "I was told by whom I do not have any doubt [of his uprightness]" (Arabic: حدثني من لا أتهم). ...

In fact the book title as presented creates some confusion ibn Qayyim al-Jawziya listed about 350 works of his teacher ibn Taymiyyah many of them -as usual in the Arabic literature- are known by parts of a title or what we can call a name they are known by. For example the book commonly reffered to by Sahih al-Bukhari in fact is entitled: al-Jami' ul-musnadu ...

Salih Ahmad Ash-Shami mentioned in the introduction to Jami Usul At-Tis'ah that the Hadith Bukhari and Muslim agree on are 1,873. Bukhari has 801 not reported in Muslim and Muslim has 1,222 not reported in Bukhari. Together they have 3,896 reports without repetition. See either Jami Bayn As-Sahihayn by Al-Humaydi or the same text by Salih Ahmad Ash-Shami. In ...

It is a book on Ilm ar-rijal and Jarh Wa at-Ta'dil. It is very specialized book meant for use by scholars so it is no surprise if you can't find an english translation. Translating is a very laborious task there are many many arabic books that are not translated yet.

Imam al-Bukhari was among the greatest hadith scholars and had a big knowledge in all the hadith sciences. He was 18 when he started writing his famous book on hadith narrators which he called at-Tarikh al-Kabeer/al-Kabir (literally "the great history") التاريخ الكبير and he wrote it in Medina sitting close to the grave of the prophet. (The two linked ...

The one who related from Malik in al-Muwatta is Yahya ibn Yahya al-Laithi يحيى بن يحيى الليثي when the Muwatta' is quoted without referring to a narrator. Yahya was the last known student of imam Malik who presented his version of al-Muwatta' to his teacher and got it approved. Therefore it is regarded as the final version of the book and the reference to ...

Al-Biqa'i, the 15th-century Shafi'i scholar, comes to mind. Walid Saleh (UToronto) wrote, "He [al-Biqa'i] has a soft spot for the Psalms, and used the book in remarkably sensitive ways to convey to the Muslim reader the sorrow and tribulations of the Jews during the destruction of the First Temple. He not only defended the sanctity of the Hebrew Bible but--...
