    Default E-Book: Usool Al-Hadeeth by Bilal Philips

    Usool Al-Hadeeth



    The science of hadeeth terminology and assessment is a particularly difficult field of study. Dr Bilal Philips has managed in this text to simplify this topic and to make it quite relevant to our times by addressing some of the most challenging questions raised by those who question the validity of hadeeth literature in general.

    Assalamu alaykum

    I have this book. Although this is not his field of expertise, the book is very clear and well laid out for beginners. However, I should make this very clear, it is a beginner level book and does not enter into the depths of these sciences at all.

    Also, I must say I disagree with Sh. Bilal's statement in his foreword that ulum al-hadith is a very developed field and there is little room for new work. Although it is true that it is a very developed field but there is considerable work that can be done as evidenced by some of the brilliant research that some researchers are putting out.

    In truth, I think it might not be farfetched to suggest that one could truly write a whole book devoted to almost every major issue of ulum al-hadith on its own.

    I have some questions here and they may be slightly off-track:

    When you disagree with 'little room for new work', does it mean that new ways of ascertaining Hadith can be established? If so, where do we draw the line between modernists and what, perhaps, Dr. Philips calls 'a very developed field and there is little room for new work'. Or are you simply implying that Hadith works can be rechecked against the already established principles of Hadith. That, I believe, would not be a case of 'new work'.

    What about Fiqh rulings? The major approaches towards Fiqh that are to be found within the domain of Ahl us Sunnah were basically established within the first few generations in principle. However, Imam Ibn Hazm's approach or for that matter Imam Dawood Zahiri's approach cannot be traced back to that era. Yet, it is accepted today. Would the same be done is a scholar stood up and adopted a totally different approach to arrive at rulings concerning some issues? In Pakistan I know it will be deemed a deviation from the very start and I myself would not be very comfortable with it. But would be one too?

    In the past, some scholars who declared TV haram on the basis of pictures etc. being haram would later encourage their followers to get rid of it. As a result, followers of one of the many agency-supported Jihadi outfits would stage 'executions' of TV sets in the middle of the roads etc. Last year, some leading scholars had a sitting and one of them said that he had a public debate with a 'deviant scholar' (where obviously the judges were the jahil public) and 8 people started performing a particular act in prayer. Later he was told that a video was made and 38 people started performing that act. So this proves the usefulness of TV and hence it should not be declared haram. I was wondering if they could replace the burnt down TV sets. This is already a very weird approach. How does this classify?

    I think he means the actual usool we r upon, whether they can actually be traced back to the earlier aimma of this field. For e.g. the shuroot of bukhari that we have today as the gospel-truth, is it really traceable to him or does his sahih al-bukhair itself fit into those usool snugly or were there exceptions etc

    Yes, for example, Sh. Abd al-Karim al-Khudayr has a book out now on the issue of using da'if hadiths in ahkam. He also addresses their use on Fada'il al-A'mal. Personally, I feel his research left something to be desired, but the point is that he was able to write a whole book on this topic which is usually addressed in the typical mustalah books in perhaps a few lines or a few pages. Another example is Amr Abd al-Mun'im Saleem's short book, al-Hasan Bi Majmu' al-Turuq, which explores the issue of Hasan due to routes, and whether it is truly authentic. This is a must read in my opinion, even though I may not agree with him in some details.

    Still another example comes to mind, Sh. al-Durayyis's Masters thesis on the dispute between al-Bukhari and Muslim (in fact, it's not limited to them) over the minimum necessary conditions for an isnad to be considered muttasil, unbroken. Sh. Hatim al-Awni has also written a whole book on this issue from a totally different angle. Sh. Ibrahim al-Lahim responded to many of Sh. Hatim's arguments in a section of his book, al-Ittisal wa al-Inqita', to which Sh. Hatim wrote a detailed and lengthy rebuttal.

    These works are just a few examples amongst many that come to mind. Understanding the intricacies of this science requires a lifetime of dedication, make no mistake about that.
