Hadith Literature by Muhammad Zubayr Siddiqi

Book Description

The 'hadith', the sayings attributed to the Prophet Muhammad, form a sacred literature which for the Muslims ranks second in importance only to the Qur'an itself. As a source of law, ethics and doctrine, the vast corpus of 'hadith' continue to exercise decisive influence. Islamic scholarship has hence devoted immense efforts to gathering and classifying the 'hadith', and ensuring their authenticity. This book is the only introduction in English which presents all the aspects of the subject. It explains the origin of the literature, the evolution of the 'isnad' system, the troubled relationship between scholars and the state, the problem of falsification, and the gradual development of a systematic approach to the material. This edition is a fully revised and updated version of the original, which was first published in 1961 to considerable scholarly acclaim. Muhammad Zubayr Siddiqi was Professor of Islamic Culture at the University of Calcutta.
