    Default 'Uloom al-Hadith ... A Good Introduction?

    as-Salaamo 'Alaaykum war-Rahmatullaah,

    What would you recommend as a good book for 'Uloom al Haadith (in Arabic)? I need something that would give me a good basis and elementary base before entering an Islamic University. Basically, an introduction to it, nothing too advanced. I dont plan on focusing on Hadeeth in later studies at the University but I still need to have the basics down.

    Nukhbat al-Fikr and its commentaries, particularly the new one by Tariq Awad Allah. Hatim al-Awni's mudhakkirah (transcribed from lectures) on Nuzhat al-Nazar is excellent as well.

    This is the best place to start.

    BTW, I should point out, as a general advice for any aspiring students of Shar'i sciences or students at Islamic universities, there exists now - in large part due to these universities - a misconception about the concept of specialization, or takhassus, in Shar'i sciences. The idea of a student without background to Shar'i studies jumping straight into specialization - as is the case with universities - is something alien to traditional studies of the Shari'a hoisted upon us by the university system, and it is - in my opinion - a crime against the Shari'a.

    A student must have a thorough grounding in all the sciences that are essential for study of the Shari'a. This is irrespective of whether he goes on to specialize in Nahw, Fiqh, Hadith, Tafsir, Aqidah, or whatever.

    Can you expand more on this? I'm not in a university, but looking at the syllabi, it seemed that all the universities teach the foundational material for all the major subjects.
    Afterwards, like in the 4th year, or in the graduate program, is where specialization is done.

    I once saw this odd phenomena. A couple of years ago whilst watching IslamQA on Islam Channel, Muhammad al Sharif was the presenter. He was asked a question related to 'aqeedah "what is the correct stance on the Prophet (pbuh) being made from noor?"

    Muhammad al Sharif replied, "i'm sorry i didn't specialise in 'aqeedah but shari'ah. so i cant answer your question" (paraphrased).

    I was rather surprised as i could easily answer the question without a BA from Madinah uni!
