We have for some time been working on and off on a project related the beginners text in hadith terminology entitled the Bayquniyyah. This brief poem is popularly studied in the Arab world as an introductory text to this science. It was therefore thought appropriate that it should be presented in an accessible format for English speaking audiences who may wish to improve their knowledge of this field of learning.
This book is now with the Tawfiq of Allah Most High in its final stages and comprises of the following parts:
Part 1. A translation of the poem with explanatory notes selected from the commentary of the recent great Meccan hadith scholar: Shaykh Hasan al-Mashat.
Part 2. Verses of the poem presented with detailed explanatory notes and diagrams. Popular commentaries on the poem were consulted and quoted from, but particular care was taken to refer to the manual of Shaykh Nur al-Din Itr entitled Manhaj al-Naqd. The diagrams were created by the compiler of this work and will inshAllah help to simplify the concepts presented in the poem.
Part 3. A brief extract from the Risalah al-Mustatrifah of Shaykh Muhammad bin Jafar al-Kattani regarding the important books of hadith a student should be familiar with.
