From the first without talking

the talk

The hadith is considered to be the second pillar in Islamic legislation and provisions after the Noble Qur’an. The Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, forbade writing down the hadith in his era in order not to mix with the Holy Qur’an and with the scarcity of the articles on which he writes and the written tools, as well as during the Companions ’era. Taking care of writing the Qur’an and collecting it during the era of Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq was until the time of Uthman when he ordered the copying of the Qur’an. Thus, until the era of Omar bin Abdul Aziz came, where he sent to Abu Bakr bin Hazm his judge over the city, saying: See what was from the hadith of the Messenger of God, peace and blessings of God be upon him, and write it.

Other reasons that led them to jot down the hadith include the death of the companions and scholars, and the large number of conditions in the hadith.

And Omar bin Abdul Aziz Ibn Shihab Al-Zuhri followed because he was the most knowledgeable man of the Sunnah at that time. He recorded all the companions he heard, but it is not classified and detailed.

The scholars ’method of collecting and recording hadith

  • After the Hadith had been preserved in the breasts, there were those who were put in the hadith, so the followers began to gather the hadith, and to find out what was correct and set conditions for accepting the hadith.
  • The hadith was written in the first place without a mixed arrangement with the sayings of the companions and the followers and imams. At this time, Muwatta Malik (176) Hijri, who classified it on issues of jurisprudence, combined between the rulings and the endowments and the provinces and the opinion of the city scholars and their opinion.
  • The Sunnis began blogging, and that was at the end of the second century and the beginning of the third century AH, when scholars took the Hadith collection as abstract in separate works.
  • The methods of the classified work were varied during this period. Some of them collected the authentic hadith and divided it into doctrinal chapters such as (Imam Al-Bukhari), and some of them had a number of proverbs such as (Musnad Imam Ahmad), a division according to the narrator's name: Sunan books appeared (Sunan Abi Dawud).
  • The role of politeness came after the scholars had finished explaining the authentic hadith from the sick hadith, after the fourth century the authorship came, and this necessitated taking care of the hadith from all sides, where the books of the parties appeared, and the books of the appendages, and the books of the mosques that tried to investigate the year, wrote the annotations to the texts, and strange books Hadith, term books, books that combine a certain type of hadith, and frequent books.
