ABOUT THE BOOK:
In this two thick volumes Shaykh Abd Allah al-Judai' tries, and to an extend succeeds, to abridge and reproduce all that has been said in Hadith science, or 'Ulum al-Hadith. He starts with analysis of this hadith science is according to the ancient or the Salaf vs that of the later scholars, the Khalaf. He decisively breaks down the historic aspect of what Hadith science is or encompasses. After describing various aspects or genres of Hadith science he goes into the various levels of Hadith transmission methods, ie Asanid. After this the real crux of the work begins wherein the author dissects and explains the finer knowledge or studies of each and every branch within the science such as the Asma, the Alqab, the al-Kuna, the Ansab, the various differentiations of the daughters and sons of a narrator or the female narrators.
The book has two main chapters and each of these chapters have atleast three main sub chapters and within those subchapters one finds a dozen or so of subheadings. Indeed a refined researched work.
ABOUT SHAYKH 'ABD ALLAH YUSUF AL-JUDAI:
Al-Judai’ is a leading light and one of the most prominent Islamic scholars of our time. His extensive knowledge of the traditional Islamic Sciences coupled with a vast knowledge of the modern social and economic spheres gives him an edge on others in his field. His authentic, reformist, and critical approach towards extrapolating new judicial opinions to fit the overall interest of the community in establishing justice, harmony, and understanding, has won him many accreditations and respect. In Al-Jazeera’s “Al-Shari’a wal-Hayat’’ (Islamic Law and Life) the preeminent world scholar and theologian Shaykh Yusuf al-Qaradawi venerated al-Judai’ as one of the most knowledgeable scientists in the science of maqasid al-Shari’a (the spirit or meaning behind the religious text). Al-Judai’ is a founding member of the European Council for Fatwa and Research where he served as its General Secretary from 1998-2000.
Dr Al-Judai received his Ph.D. in Islamic Economics and is one of the leading Islamic scholars in the world today. Born in al-Basra, Iraq in 1958, he received Ijaza from the leading scholars of Iraq. He was a founding member of the European Council for Fatwa and Research where he served as its General Secretary from 1998-2000, his roles – among many- included being an Imam & Khateeb of Al-Nijada Masjid in al-Basra (1976-1978); head Imam & Khateeb of Al-‘Uqaila & Amr Ibn ‘As Masajid in Kuwait (1979-1986); and a senior Islamic Studies teacher in Dar al-Qur’an in Kuwait (1986-1988). Combining a broad knowledge of Islamic sciences and using modern day tools and information technology, he served as a research consultant for Al-Sakhr Technologies in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia (which introduced the first Arabic PC) where he edited most of the initial software programs on Hadith and other Sciences. Sheikh Abdullah published his first book at the age of 18 and has since has published almost one hundred books on a wide range of topics and issues. He has received commendations from the leaders of Islamic Fiqh and Hadith around the world. He is currently the head of Al-Judai’ Centre for Research and Counselling, a religious consultant for Leeds Grand Mosque, and a teacher of Usul Al-Fiqh at the European Institute of Human Sciences, Wales.
