Chapter 3, Hadith & Seerah, The Authority of Sunnah / Saturday, August 30th, 2008

It is not possible for us to give all the details of the critical sciences developed by the scholars of hadith. What we have stated in this chapter is only a simple example of the works undertaken by them. It can, however, help one to imagine the altitude of their academic and scientific efforts and to satisfy oneself that the task of ‘preservation of hadith’ has been performed by this Ummah with such diligence, precaution and sense of responsibility that one cannot find its parallel in the history of any other community. It was through these efforts that the divine promise of the preservation of the Holy Quran, with all its letters and meanings, was duly fulfilled.
