An Overview of the Course
Imām al-Bukhārī (rahimahullāh) was born 13th of Shawwāl 194 H and was destined to become the Amīr al-Mu'minīn in hadith before his death in the year 256 H. His full name was Abu Abdullāh Muhammad ibn Ismā`īl Ibn Ibrāhīm Ibn al-Mughīrah Ibn Bardizbah al-Bukhārī. He was known to have a phenomenal memory with the ability to repeat narrations verbatim.
His greatest work is his Ṣaḥīḥ is regarded as the highest authority of the collection of hadith. It has also been recorded that it took Imām al-Bukhārī a period of 16 years to gather the ahādīth and to write the Ṣaḥīḥ, which sets the date back to 217 H as the year in which he started the compilation; Imām al-Bukhārī being merely 23 years of age. He finalized each hadith in the rawdah of Masjid an-Nabawi and wrote the hadīth in the masjid. Only after being completely satisfied with a hadīth did he give it a place in his collection.
Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī consists of 7,563 ahādith in 98 books including those ahādith which have been repeated. Without repetitions however, the total number of ahādith is around 2,600.
The present course is a summary of the chapter which deals with those narrations which soften the heart. This will be delivered in two parts, with each part consisting of a ten-week course.
Students will be required to complete the registration form and pay the required course costs on the first session. All notes will be provided, with the student required to only bring note-taking material should they require.
