Ijazah in the Forty Hadith of Imam Nawawi

Course Category: Hadith | Level 3 Course

Course Code: HAD 302

Course Description: 

An in-depth study of the forty-hadith compilation of Imam al-Nawawī, this course is meant to provide students with a foundation in the hadith of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. The Prophet ﷺ was given jawāmiʿ al-kalim ( جوامع الكلم), or the ability to say much in very few words. The hadiths of the Prophet ﷺ combine eloquence with deep, encompassing meanings in a uniquely simple way. This particular compilation was chosen because it includes agreed upon hadiths, and it covers a variety of subjects. 

By the end of this course, students will be able to explain, understand, and draw practical life lessons from the text of the forty hadiths in this compilation. They will be able to discuss key vocabulary from the hadith and discuss the narrators of the hadith.

Students will have the opportunity to sit for an oral assessment and receive ijazah in this hadith compilation in the oral tradition.
