Hadeeth Diploma Syllabus
Foundations in Hadeeth Studies
This course is designed to teach the student of Hadeeth everything he needs to know BEFORE sitting at the feet of a MuHaddith.
1. BayQooniyyah Plus
Many sincere, wanna-be students of Hadeeth want to know, what do I have to do to become, “ahlul Hadeeth”? Well, wonder no more. BayQooiyyah Plus is a skills-based Preparatory-Hadeeth class. Its students will learn; the history of the Science, the mentality and manners of ahlul Hadeeth, its basic terminology, the biographies of its major scholars, the difference between narrating a Hadeeth literally and by its meaning, and the rules and regulations that must be followed when narrating a Hadeeth by its meaning. This is a must for further study in Hadeeth sciences.
2. Arba'Een Nawaawi
After learning MustaliHul Hadeeth, the students will learn the most comprehensive Hadeeth in islaam. The famous Forty Hadeeth compiled by Imaam an-Nawawi. [RaHimahullaah] These Hadeeth encompass the core concepts of islaam and during this part of the course, the students will become, [in shaa Allaah] intimately familiar with them.
3. Umdatul AHkaam
During this part of the course, the students are immediately immersed in the work of MuHadditheen. They are shown example after example of how scholars have used Hadeeth as a piece of general evidence, or as a pointed detail for every one of the AHkaam. As Umdatul AHkaam only uses Hadeeth from Bukhaari and Muslim, the student is trained to establish proof using authentic Hadeeth. By the end of this course, the student should be thoroughly trained and properly prepared to sit for Hadeeth. And Allaah knows best.
