Product Overview

This work deals with and explains a great branch of Muhammadan literature which stands beside the Quaran as a source of Muslim belief & practice. It was odd that no other books were published in the English language that discussed the traditions of Islam, because the everyday life of Muslims throughout the world is governed & directed by these traditions. Contents: evolution of Hadith; Umayyad Period; Abbasid Period; criticism of Hadith by Muslims; selections from Hadith; borrowing from Christian documents & tradition; some aspects of the Prophet Muhammad in tradition; bibliography; glossary of more common technical terms used in the Hadith literature.
