I must confess that due to a number of preoccupations we have not been able to post anything in a while. That said, I would like to put the readers of this blog at ease and assure them that regular posting should soon resume, in sha Allah.
In order to facilitate the uploading process, not all posts will be accompanied with introductory text. Some posts will simply be uploads of books and details of the book or author will be updated at a later time.
We appreciate the du’as and participation of all of our readers and contributors and encourage them to continue their support.
The following book is a short text by Imam Shah ‘Abd al-Haqq al-Muhaddith al-Dihlawi, the author of two famous commentaries of the Mishkat and a soon-to-be published (in sha Allah) short prolegomena to the science of the terminology of hadith, on the differences between apparent synonyms in the Arabic language.
It is still in manuscript form, but as I suspect it will not be published for quite a while if ever, I thought it wise to post it here for your enjoyment. I stumbled across this text while researching Imam Dihlawi’s life for an introduction to the translation to his Muqaddamah fi Usul al-Hadith.
