Description :

This book introduces the key interpretive principles that form the hadith hermeneutics of the Hanafi School. It surveys the formation and development of the School from its founder Abu Hanifa, may Allah be pleased with him, until the theorisation and consolidation of later adherents. It then explains the interpretive principles with examples of those principles applied to legal cases.

The copious citation of classical Arabic texts makes this a convenient reference for those studying and researching this subject area.

Although Introductory Hadith Studies is merely a basic and preliminary work, its novelty, scope, contents and references will prove highly useful for those requiring a convenient summation of Hanafi hadith hermeneutics.
