 The Prophetic traditions of Islam, which are commonly referred to as thehadiths (literally: ‘reports’), preserve the sum and substance of the utterances,deeds, directives, and descriptive anecdotes connected with the life of theProphet Muhammad and his Companions. Together with the Qur’an, thehadiths provide the religion of Islam with its principal scriptural sources. The collection features an accessible and informative introduction whichpresents an outline of the significance of the hadiths within the religioustradition while also reviewing classical scholarship devoted to the literatureof the traditions; moreover, the introduction decisively sets into context theacademic debates and arguments which are fleshed out in the articlesselected. It also charts developments in the academic study of hadiths,summing up the current state of the field and features a detailed bibliography listing primary classical sources germane to the field of prophetic traditionstogether with recent research monographs and articles devoted to the subject. This Major Work provides an authoritative collection of the seminal researcharticles produced by western academic scholarship on the subject of the hadithover the past century, including recent papers on the subject. In bringing together the finest examples of scholarship devoted to the hadith and theclassical literature that surrounds it, these volumes provide an indispensablereference resource for academics, research institutions, governmentalorganizations, and those with a general interest in Arabic and Islamic Studies,Religious Studies, Arabic Cultural Studies, and Middle East History.
