    1. The book does an excellent job providing you with an introduction to the complex topic of Hadiths in Islam Few people are aware that most Islamic laws and legal rulings stem from Hadiths and not the Qur an In fact, the Qur an does not even specify the rulings on prayer and fasting As such, scholars lean towards Hadiths to understand what to do Hadiths are statements that trace back to the Prophet, or for particular sects, those of Companions of Family of the Prophet As such, since the Qur an adv [...]


    2. Hadith Muhammad s Legacy in the Medical and Modern World Having finished reading his book Misquoting Muhammad earlier, I proceeded to search for his other works The ones that I can find on are two price in the UK is so cheap Especially 2nd hand This book and another one regarding the two canons of the Muslim World, Bukhari and Muslim The latter is out of my financial capability so I have to make do with the former It doesn t mean that this is inferior to another, but it just indicates the sheer [...]


    3. Buku yang terbaik tidak hanya membekalkan sebeban maklumat kepada pembaca, sebaliknya memahamkan pembaca tentang letak duduknya sesuatu perkara dan menyedarkan pembaca terbabit tentan letak duduk individu itu sendiri, apatah lagi dalam konteks tradisi hadis yang berkaitan dengan sumber utama yang kudus, iaitu Nabi Muhammad SAW.Di tangan Prof Brown yang mengikuti tradisi hadis itu sendiri termasuk dengan Sheikh Ali Juma ah , beliau membentangkan evolusi tradisi hadis yang bergerak daripada bagaim [...]


    4. I would call it a reasonable survey of Hadith science as it is not in the same vein as other detailed surveys by Zubayr Siddique and Azami However, in my view, Dr Brown wanted it to be a brief historical methodological survey with emphasis on the so called authenticity question of interpretive and originally oral traditions and modern debates surrounding the Hadith tradition That, in my view, is the real strength of the book and those who are not directly familiar with Muir, Goldziher, Schacht [...]


    5. An excellent introduction at least for me to hadith literature Quite up to date and informative with interesting writing style It has provided me with some serious academic perspectives to think about hadith Last two chapters are very interesting where the author has summarized the historically shifting understanding of hadith in the western academia and in the muslim world.


    6. I read this book immediately after and Professor Brown s previous book Misquoting Muhammad In this book Professor Brown has done an admirable job in exposing the enormity of forged hadith It was a shock for me to learn that hadith such as Whenever you find someone who has had sex within an animal kill him and then the animal exist within Al Tirmidhi Other hadith such as The people who entrust their affairs to a woman will not succeed also came as a surprise And perhaps the most mind blowing of a [...]


    7. The third book of this author that I finished.This book is a survey of a hadith history and methodology, b hadith function in various spheres and groups and c hadith criticism in the West and use by modern Muslims.A relatively condensed book, and I think fair overview of the hadith tradition Every chapter is fairly self sufficient, but this resulted in a lack of a single narrative, like in Misquoting Muhammad The author obviously drew a lot from his work on the canonization of Al Bukhari and Mus [...]


    8. A common saying among Muslim scholars identifies hadith critics with pharmacists, who provide the medicine, and legal scholars with doctors, who know how to use this medicine properly p 160 Dr Brown s medicine begins as a thick syrup with a bitter taste that gets progressively sweeter as you savor it It is one of those prescriptions that you know will be a little difficult to get through, but one that is so timely and so crucial for improving one s understanding of hadith that it is very much wo [...]



    9. Read it during the aitikaaf observance in Ramadan Mostly academic but does have some good historical background about the hadith provenance and record keeping.



    10. This is an amazing resource that I would highly recommend to any student of Islam, regardless of faith or previous level of study Brown presents a very clear, readable account of Hadith collection and criticism He also breaks down the historic and current relationship tension between the Quran, Hadith, and reason in determining tenets of faith and religious practice The many names, dates, and complex concepts that could otherwise be very tedious to read through are presented in an incredibly acc [...]


    11. This book is a great introduction to the science of hadeeth and the role of hadeeth in the pre modern and modern Muslim world It was a bit dense at times but I still learned so much reading it I gained much respect for the process of hadeeth collection in the ancient world Brown makes what could a rather complicated subject accessible to lay readers His list of suggested reading at the end of each chapter was useful Also, I like that Brown provides a nuanced and comprehensive examination of had [...]


    12. Excellent and objective Jonathan Brown does a phenomenal job of explaining the Hadith tradition He begins by explaining its formation, the internal Muslim struggles that shaped Hadith discourse, and how the west has criticized the Hadith tradition He ends his book by discussing the different Muslim movements in the modern age and how they ve used the Hadith against western pressure.


    13. I use this book as a reference from time to time The chapters I have resorted to makes me realise this book is unique in that there is nothing out there which matches it in English, for the clarity of the arguments made, the author s real knack in making theories accessible and engaging students No less than a breakthrough, given the wealth of material reduced in this volume It serves as a wonderful introduction Highly recommended Indispensable A second edition is on its way.


    14. Quick and amazing read, recommended to anyone interested in this topic The author doesn t express personal opinions in this book, he only explains very objectively the process of Hadith collection followed by different Islamic sects, and the various methods of Hadith criticism according to western, classical and modern Islamic standards I loved it.


    15. Helpful beginners guide to understanding the science of hadith Dr Brown gives insight to multiple perspectives, while maintaining a general academic s removed nature from the subject though he certainly has his own opinions A fair, clear, and concise work that I found rather beneficial.


    16. An excellent account of all the different aspects of ad th and some of the debates regarding them This book sets the new standard for introductory book on Hadith I wish that a volume like this had been available when I was first learning about the sciences of Hadith.


    17. Pretty readable except for the long list of books as examples at various points in the book.Pretty comprehensive as well.


    18. good to understand the development of laws and regulations Orovides details about the history and complexities in acceptance of hadith and validation of the chain of transmission.


    19. Very informative and eye opening Muslims should definitely read this history and current implications of Hadith.


    20. Suitable for a scholarly audience and ambitious lay readers Brown also writes very well, making it an enjoyable read.
