An Explanation of The Bayquni Poem In Hadith Terminology

 

The scholars of Hadith have spared no effort to establish the principles by which to verify narrations and deduce - with the utmost precision - what can and cannot be attributed to the Prophet (pbuh). Facilitating this quest for the beginning student, the erudite Imam ‘Umar al-Bayquni al-Dimashqi succinctly defined 34 categories of Hadith in his famous 34 verses of poetry.

 

Numerous commentaries upon this treatise followed, of which one of the most sought after in recent times is this masterpiece we have before us written by the master [hafiz] of Hadith and exegete of the Qur'an, Imam 'Abdallah Sirajuddin al-Husayni.
