  • Hadith means words, actions and silent/tacit approval of the Prophet (S.A.W.)
  • During the life time of the Prophet (S.A.W.) and even after his death, his companions (Aṣḥāb) used to refer to him directly, when quoting his sayings.

  • Consequently, deliberate fabrication of Aḥādīth by various sects led to the revival of the study of Hadith.

  • These led to the verification of authentic Ḥadith.
  • Likewise, the science of <em>Matn </em>(text) took root.
  • The science of Asmā’ ar-Rijāl came into study.
  • The desire of the Muslims to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet (S.A.W.) also served as a factor.

  • The security of Yathrib was a joint responsibility of both the Muslims and the Jews.
