The word
Hadith is derived from Tahdis which means “to inform In the Islamic
terminology every saying, deed and sermon delivered or any act done in the
presence or knowledge of the Holy Prophet and to which he did not express his
dissent is called Hadith. Later on every saying of the Apostle (Mohammad, peace
& blessing of Allah be upon him) used to be called. Hadith. It is observed
that before the advent of Islam this word was used in the sense of
“Information”, for example the Cycle of Time was called Ahadith,
According to Al Farra the plural of Hadith is Haddatha and the plural of
Ahaddatha is Ahadith. In Arabic the idiom “Sa’d  Ahaddatha has been used, which means that the
speech became a proverb. If you mutate the root of the word Hadith into various
forms, then in every event the meaning “to inform” will be explicit.
There is yet another finding by the researchers of the word Hadith. According
to them the word Hadith is used in a sense signifying opposite of the word
ancient (Qadim). That is Hadith means to express the present or modern as opposed
to old. Thus by ancient is meant the “Book of God” and by modern
(Jadid) is understood the Hadith of the Apostle of God (peace be upon him).
Allama Asqalzai writes in Fatahal Bari, an exegesis of Bokhari “In the
terms of Shar’a, by Hadith is meant those words and deeds which are attributed
to the Holy prophet. Therefore Hadith is antonym to Quran, which is ancient in
the factor of Time. It is reported by Hazrat Abdullah Bin Masood that the Holy
Prophet had said “that only two things carry importance, the one is speech
and the other is the method of action, so the words of Allah are the best of
speech and the best method is the deeds of the Holy Prophet. Now for the issue
that the word Hadith was used by the Moslem Umma after the period of Holy Prophet
(P.B.O.H) it is clearly evident that the Holy Apostle (P.B.O.H.) termed his own
speech as Hadith. Thus he gave exclusiveness to his own speech over other’s
speeches and the word Hadith, thus, denotes only his speech. That is why the
scholars of Hadith call the words of the Holy Apostle as Hadith.

Before we
touch upon the benefits and ethics of the art of Hadith and what identifies
with it, it is important to clarify why the Ahadith were aggregated from the
favored period of the Mates till this date and how was the procedure of

exceptionally short understanding into this is the honored time of the
Flag-bearer of Allah was the time when the verses of the Heavenly Qur’an were
being uncovered. since the most critical assignment in this time was the
accumulation of these verses and saving this Celestial trust, this was the
reason the Emissary of Allah underlined again and again that the Buddies gather
and compose just the verses of the Heavenly Qur’an – nothing else. This was
with the goal that no perplexity be made in the event that anything other than
the Heavenly Qur’an would likewise be recorded.

Be that as
it may, consent was given to remember, record, safeguard and after that
transmit the Ahadith by tongue. Imam Muslim describes from Hadrat Abu Sa’id
al-Khudri, who reports that the Flag-bearer of Allah has expressed,
“Nobody ought to compose my discourse. Whosoever has composed anything
next to the Qur’an ought to kill it; and transmit my Ahadith verbally; there is
no damage in doing as such. Whosoever ascribes a mislead me, at that point he
ought to get ready for himself a dwelling place the fire of Damnation.”
over this, there were a few Partners – who had full assurance not to confound
the Verses of the Sacred Qur’an from the detailed discourse of the Delegate of
Allah – who composed the Ahadith.

al-Bukhari describes on the specialist of Hadrat Abu Hurairah who states,
“There was none from among the Partners who portrayed the most Ahadith
aside from Hadrat ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (ibn al-‘As); as he used to record them by
keeping in touch with them down, and I didn’t do that.”

At the point
when the greater part of the verses of the Heavenly Qur’an – some that were
composed on partitioned bits of paper, some on abandons, some on slates, some
on deer skin, some that were retained in the hearts – were gathered and
aggregated into one book frame amid the favored time of Hadrat ‘Umar al-Faruq
and Hadrat ‘Uthman; and the majority of the duplicates of the Sacred Qur’an
were appropriated far and wide to a wide range of nations, by which there was
no worry for the verses of the Blessed Qur’an being mistaken for the detailed
discourse (Ahadith) of the Errand person of Allah, the way toward gathering,
accumulating and composing the Ahadith started in the period of the Noble
Caliph ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz upon his recommendation.

editorial manager of Imam Jalal al-Clamor al-Suyuti’s critique on the Alfiyyah
states in the presentation that, “when Hadrat ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz was
given the obligation of being a Caliph in the year 99 A.H. he kept in touch
with Hadrat Abu Bakr ibn Hazm – the Shaikh of the Imams Ma’mar, Laith, Awza’i,
Malik, ibn Ishaq and Ibn Abi Dhi’b and furthermore the bad habit of the Caliph
in the Court of Equity of al-Madinah al-Munawwarah – to gather and incorporate
all the Ahadith of the Delivery person of Allah, as he dreaded (consecrated)
information getting to be noticeably wiped out, and the downfall of the owners
of this learning – the ‘Ulema.” Introduction to the Alfiyyah – Page 5

This, as
well as truth be told, Hadrat ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz kept in touch with each
one of those far and wide to gather and order any Hadith of the Delegate of
Allah, they find. Tarikh Isfahan – Abu Nu’aim

Upon the inspiration,
consolation, and steady endeavors of Hadrat ‘Umar ibn ‘Abd al-‘Aziz, the
primary book on the investigation of Hadith was assembled by Hadrat Abu Bakr
ibn Hazm. From there on, multitudinous books were composed and ordered on
various subjects of this valuable study of holy information, by numerous world
class Shuyukh who originated from a wide range of spots.

Among the
individuals who aggregated and composed books of Hadith at this early age of
its gathering were ibn Juraij in Makkah al-Mukarramah; ibn Ishaq and Imam Malik
in al-Madinah al-Munawwarah; Rabi’ ibn Sabih, Sa’id ibn ‘Urwah and Hammad ibn
Salimah in Basra; Imam Sufyan al-Thawri in Kufa; Imam al-Awza’i in
Syro-Palestine; Hisham in Wasit; Jarir ibn ‘Abdullah in Rai, and ibn al-Mubarak
in Khurasan. These men of extraordinary learning, were contemporary and of one
classification. The greater part of them were the understudies of Hadrat Abu
Bakr ibn Hazm and Imam ibn Shihab al-Zuhri.

the Ahadith were spread far and wide because of the gathering and composing of
books on Ahadith; setting out the establishment standards for tolerating or
dismissing a report; gathering foundation data of the storytellers and their
convictions; composing books on the behaviors and conduct fundamental for an
understudy seeking after this hallowed learning of Hadith. These were gathered
to frame a sub-subject of Hadith – Usul-e-Hadith or the Standards of Hadith.

Ahadith were
accumulated utilizing the thorough of all models and guidelines to acknowledge
a report, until the point when the Six Real Accumulations of Ahadith wound up
noticeably acknowledged and well known. These are the Sahih of Imams Bukhari
and Muslim, the Jami’ of Imam al-Tirmidhi, the Sunan of Imams Abu Dawud, Nasa’i
and Ibn Majah.

We have
revealed some insight upon Ahadith, its History of Accumulation, and its status
in Islam. Those genuine and earnest Muslims who adore Islam and the Qur’an, and
who perceive themselves as people of this Ummah, which is prospering with its
dependable legacy of more than fourteen hundred years of an unbroken bind of
transmission to our master ruler the Detachment of Allah, are not needing any
proof to demonstrate the veracity of Ahadith.

nonetheless, for those wolves in sheep’s clothing who prevent the unwavering
quality from securing Ahadith, yet name themselves Individuals of the Qur’an,
in the event that I had much time, I would make it clear like the certitude of
the sun at early afternoon with unquestionable confirmations and confirmations
that their disavowal of the Ahadith is in actuality the foreswearing of the
expressions of Allah. They are not doing this exclusive to clear a path for
themselves not to take after the Qur’an.

principle contention is that the interpretation and importance of the verses of
the Sacred Qur’an ought to be left to their own particular will;
notwithstanding they want they remove the implications of the Blessed Qur’an,
so that, even in the wake of modifying the right significance and
interpretation of the Qur’anic verses, they can dishonestly claim to be its

We ask Allah
the Most Lifted up to shield the Muslim Ummah from the malice of the attacks of
the individuals who dismiss Ahadith, and that he gives them direction to expand
the light of Ahadith to dispose of the obscurity that wins the Ummah today.

His choicest
favors and welcome be upon the best of His creation, our Lord Muhammad, his
offspring, upon his allies and the majority of his adherents.
