Like the Qur’an, the traditions and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, the ḥadīth, have been miraculously preserved for fourteen centuries. It is important to recognize the long journey the aḥadīth of the Blessed Prophet ﷺ have made through the passage of time and how they have been protected against the perverting hands of distorters, corrupters, and mistake-prone narrators.
In this short treatise, the author, Shaikh Ibrahim Madani, has simplified much of the information found only in the larger texts on the science of ḥadīth. In addition, he highlights the authority of ḥadīth in Islam and how they were preserved. This book is an excellent start for those who wish to gain a basic understanding of this subject, but cannot invest the time or means to do so.
