This course will equip students with a detailed understanding of the various istilahaat (or terminologies) in the science of Hadith. As is the main concern of the Science of Hadith, this book will enable students to navigate through the intricacies and sophisticated classifying, positioning, accepting and rejecting narrations.
The text that will be studied, Nukhbatul Fikr, is a primary text that is commonly used to introduce a student of knowledge into the Science of Hadith and the significant terminologies 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).
Nukhbat al-Fikar has received many commentaries, many abridgements as well as versifications. It has been said that while Ibn Hajar was alive, a student of his named ash-Shumunni sought his permission to write a commentary, which might have not impressed Ibn Hajar as he was recorded to have said; "The owner of the house knows best what is in it". Following this Ibn Rajab wrote his popular commentary titled Nuzhat al-Nazar fi Tawdhih Nukhbat al-Fikar fi Mustalah Ahl al-Athar.
