An Introduction to the Conservation of Hadith - In the Light of the Sahifah of Hammam ibn Munabbih
Author : Dr Muhammad Hamidullah
Paperback (IBT) 206 pages
"Since the past century, orientalist works had challenged the authenticity of Hadith material (sayings of the Prophet), claiming that these collections of hadiths were done orally and therefore subject to misreporting and alterations. Dr Hamidullah discovered very early collections of hadiths preserved in libraries in Turkey, France and Germany, and on the basis of these, refuted the misgivings spread by orientalists. This work selects the collections of Hammam ibn Munabbih, a disciple of a companion of the Prophet to substantiate his arguments."
