About The Book
In al-Taqrib wa al-Taysir, Imam Nawawi said, "Verily, studying the science of hadith ['ilm al-hadith] is from the best devotional acts that draw one near to the Lord of the Worlds. How is it not so?! It explains the way of the Best of Creation (upon him be peace)."
The Final Messenger, the Prophet Muhammad (upon him be peace), was sent for the guidance of humanity. His way is the straight path on which one traverses through this transient world onward into the next; the path to Paradise is tread in his footsteps, by emulating his perfect example (upon him be peace).
The endeavor of hadith scholars, generation after generation until today, has been to know what is authentically attributed to the Prophet (upon him be peace). An effort to know that perhaps stems from the reality that success in this world and the next is in adherence to the Sunnah. The way of the Final Messenger (upon him be peace) must be known; it is the way for humanity to live.
This book is one of the most famous primers in the subject of ‘ilm al-hadith is ‘Umar b. Muhammad al-Bayquni’s Manzumah. This work has received much attention in traditional circles of learning, both past and present. Many scholars have elucidated this text through their commentaries. In this work, Bayquni’s Manzumah has been translated into English, and features line-by-line along with the versification. Also, two Arabic commentaries are presented. The first is Shaykh Hasan al-Mashshat’sal-Taqrirat al-Saniyyah. The second is Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahman b. Sulayman al-Ahdal’s al-Hawashy al-Mufidah. These two have been edited from both printed versions of the works and manuscripts too. Throughout the publication are explanatory footnotes added by the publisher; and at the end, there is a brief introduction to narrator criticism (ar: al-jarhwa al-ta‘dil) presented. Narrator criticism is something essential for one studying hadith, while it does not feature as a chapter in the versification.
