Usool Al Hadeeth
 
or the
Methodology of Hadith Evaluation
is a separate branch of Islamic theologywhich deals with the history, criticism, compilation, evaluation, methodology, research, interpretationand transmission of Hadith. Its development started right from the era of the Prophet Muhammad(SAW) and today this field of Islamic theology is so developed that it leaves a very little room foradditional work.
Usool Al Hadeeth
 
is a part of 
Usool 
 
 Ad Deen
(Islamic Diciplines), taught as a subject in many Islamicuniversities especially the Islamic University of Medina. This book by Dr. Bilal Philips is one of the fewsuch books available in English, as most of the literature on Hadeeth evaluation is in Arabic, renderingthe study of this field difficult. By compiling this work Dr Bilal Philips has simplified this field of study.Besides being a part of the BAIS (Bachelor of Arts in Islamic Studies) program that Dr Bilal Philips set upin the U.A.E. and Qatar, this book is ideal for all the students of Islamic Studies as well as for keenlearners of Hadith.The book is spread over thirteen chapters including the Appendix and Bibliography and can prove to bea solid foundation for learning of 
Usool Al Hadeeth
. The book starts with the
definitions
of Hadeethand their importance in Islamic theology and jurisprudence followed by detailed information about the
compilation
of Hadeeth right from the era of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to later times thusclearing misconceptions simultaneously.
The transmission of Hadeeth
and related methods have been thoroughly discussed. The great carethat the Companions and the Pious Predecessors took in the transmission of Hadeeth has beendiscussed based on the Hadeeth:
Whoever lies about me deliberately should take his seat in theHell-fire
. Also the origination and pattern of 
Isnad,
the science of biographical accounts of narratorsand the preservation of chains of narration has been thoroughly discussed along with many examples.The largest chapter of the books which is spread upon 60 pages deals with the Classification of Hadeeth. The section of classification is the most important chapter of the book and the
Sahih
,
Hasan
,
Da
’ 
eef 
and
Mawdu
Hadeeth and their types have been thoroughly explained. Also many reasons forthe fabrication of Hadeeth have also been quoted and various types of 
Da
’ 
eef ( 
Weak
 )
Hadeeth like
Mua
’ 
llaq
,
Mursal 
,
Munqati 
,
Mua
’ 
ddal 
,
Mudallas
,
Munkar 
,
Matrook 
, etc have explained in detail. Thecontroversy about the acceptance of the
 Ahad 
Hadeeth has also been very well discussed by theauthor while quoting examples from Qur
an, Hadeeth and other significant texts.
