The advantage of this book comes out clearly in the original method the author followed in his study of these prophetic sayings...the author delves into the main business of studying the hadith in great detail and depth. Every phrase of the hadith is studied linguistically, logically, jurisprudentially, legally, and so on. The author uses his vast knowledge of the sources to put before th reader almost all that scholars old and new had to say on matters related to the hadith and almost all the lessons that they had deduced from it. But he does not onlyquote and translate; he also adds,discusses and evaluates. He gives you all the important interpretations of different parts of the hadith text and the arguments of the scholars who suggested them. This gives the reder the chance to penetrate the minds of those great scholars and to familiarize himself with their reasoning and argumentation...
