ABOUT THE BOOK:
'Know, -May Allah have mercy on you all- that who ever denies the usage of Hadiths of the Prophet (s.a.w) -whether it be his words or actions as it is known in the science of Usul- being Hujja (Proof) has disbelieved and leaves the fold of Islam and is therefore like the Jews and the Christians or any of those other disbelieving sects that Allah has ordained. It has been narrated from Imam Ash-Shafi'i that he said (in regards to a hadith): 'It is Sahih' so someone said to him; 'Is this your opinion o Abu 'Abdullah? (i.e. Do you take this Hadith as proof), and he (Imam Shafi'i) hit the man and said: 'O you, Do you take me as an Christian? or have you witnessed me exiting from a church? Do you see a belt around my waist? (meaning the belt used by the christian monks around their waist) How would I narrate Hadith from the Prophet (s.a.w) and I wouldnt agree with it?'
The origin of thisfalseopinionisfromthose misguided extreme zindiqs who deny the usage of Hadith and confined themselves only to the Qur'an'
The above words are translated from the Introduction of Imam As-Suyutiworkinfront of you, where he identifies the topic of this book, namely that The Hadith of the prophet s.a.w is part of the Law and is therefore codified within it. he says elsewhere in the same book:
'Imam Malik compared the Sunnah to Noah's (as) ark, for 'whoever boards it will be saved, and whoever does not will drown.'

FromAsyutinEgypt,he was among the most renowned and prolific Muslim scholars of all time. He wrote more than 300 books, covering every aspect of the Islamic sciences. He memorized the Qur’an at the age of ‘eight, and then went on to study with more than 150 scholars. He travelled extensively in his quest for knowledge — to Damascus, Hijaz, Yemen, India, Morocco, and the lands south of Morocco, as well as in Egypt.
Al-Suyuti devoted hislifetolearning,teaching and writing. He was noble, abstinent and self-sufficient, distancing himself from people of rank and power and living on what he earned by teaching. Major writings of al-Suyuti that remain widely used today include al-Itqan, on the Qur’anic sciences; and Tafsir al-Jalalayn, which he completed when only 22.
