The Lamppost Education Initiative is once again pleased to offer our “Introduction to Hadith Science” Course. This online course is a highly nuanced study of history, evolution, crystallization and nomenclature of the science of hadith. Based on the traditional poem, “Al-Manzuma Al-Bayquniya “, Shaykh Abdullah provides detailed explanations of how our scholars preserved the words of the Prophet (saws).

Some of the learning objectives in this course for the student are:

  • To learn the definition of a hadith and its subdivisions

  • To learn and understand the nomenclature of scholarly hadith criticism
  • To learn the different strengths and usages of hadith
  • To learn the difference between the Sunni and Shiite criteria for hadith authentication
