Course Aims & Objectives:

The lessons begin with the defects found in the narrator, asal-Jahaalah & Mubham (the unknown and obscure), Bid’ah (innovation), followed by Siyagh al-Adaa [The words of delivery], Rulings related to Jarh wa Tadeel, the
etiquettes of the shaykh and disciple, the age of hearing and delivering reports, the method of writing and recording etc. The book ends by the mention of travelling in pursuit of hadith, types of hadith Compilation and the reasons behind the Hadith.
