Live Hadith course: Nukhbat al-Fikar of Imam ibn Hajar

Imam ibn Hajar al-Asqalani’s Nukhbatul Fikr is a primary text that is commonly used to introduce an individual to the Science of Hadith (Ulum al-Hadith) and the major terminology (Mustalah) associated with it. In effect it is a summary of the larger works preceding his time on how to understand the detailed rudiments to this nomenclature and its systematic application.

This introductory text covers the types of chains of transmission (asanid), types of acceptable narrations (maqbul) and the types of rejected narrations (mardud). Additionally, the course intends to add further material on how to consolidate knowledge after mastering the fundamentals. All of this will be delivered in a systematic manner with practical examples as and when needed over the sessions.


What students have said about our courses in the past:


“Alhumdulillah, the course was excellent, just as expected. It was  very beneficial for me as i am already studying science of hadeeth at madrasah.       I speak for a number of people when i say we want more courses from the   same Shaykh Insha Allah. May Allah {SWT} reward all who participated in  this course; Shaykh, helpers and students.”


“Alhamdulillah a great course. So inspiring&beneficial. A true reccomendation!       May Allah azza wajal have mercy on Sheikh &all the participants who helped       organise. I look forward to the next course!”


This had to be the best course I’ve ever been to. I learnt so much and was   amazed by the Shaykh’s in-depth knowledge. I miss the Shaykh already and   I hope Allah Ta’ala grants him a very long life..Amin!”


“Alhumdulillah, yet again a very well organised class by Sunni courses.       I always enjoy attending, Allah preserve Shaykh Abul Hasan, reward him in   abundance and increase him in knowledge. Extremely beneficial mashaAllah,   i would definately recommend any course taught by Shaykh and run by Sunni    courses.”
