Post Category : Books, Browse Islam

Chain of Command, formally known as Mustalah-ul-Hadeeth or Ilm-ul-Hadeeth, is a course regarding the Sciences of Hadeeth. Sheikh Abdul BaryYahya divided the course into two major sections corresponding to each weekend. The first weekend essentially covers the Scholars of Hadith, otherwise known in Arabic as the Muhadithoon. The second weekend is dedicated to the actual science of scrutinizing and analyzing hadeeth.
