With the rapid pace of change in Saudi Arabia and increased tolerance (in some areas) towards Non-Salafi Muslim scholars, I believe I can now safely publish this post without fear of harassment for the scholar mentioned below.
I received as a gift the above copy of the famous Dalail al-Khayrat text from none other than a long serving member of the Panel of Senior Scholars of Saudi Arabia (Haiyah Kibar al-Ulama).
Please find below a pdf of a primer on the science hadith which is based on two works of the recent great Meccan hadith specialist: Sayyid Muhammad bin Alawi al-Maliki. This text was prepared for the second year students of the Alimiyyah programme being run in High Wycombe by the Karima al-Marwaziyya Foundation. Alhumdulillah a group of approximately 20 students completed the study of this text this academic year, may Allah Taala grant them and us tawfiq and taysir in all of our studies.
