Islam is a complete code of life providing the fundamental divine principles and timeless guidelines for whole humanity embedded in two primary Islamic sources, Quran, and Sunnah. The Holy Quran is the sacred fountain of Islamic literature, and the knowledge of Hadith occupies a central position in interpretation of the Quran. The impact and the scope of Hadith science is highly significant because it plays an effective role to extract laws, describe rituals, and explain doctrine. The knowledge of Hadith represents the means by which Quranic injunctions are explained including the contextual meanings as well as obscurities are better clarified. Further, Hadith tells us about the life of the Holy Prophet (Peace Be upon Him); his sayings, actions, and deeds. In addition to it, Hadith is a source of Islamic knowledge. The Holy Quran tells us about the basic pillars of Islam: Salat, Saum, Haj and Zakat. It is the knowledge of Hadith that provides further information about these pillars of Islam. For example, the method of performing Salat, the details of observing zakat etc. It is also worth mentioning that the life of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) is a role model for all mankind. The following verse of the holy Quran is relevant in this,

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِلْعَالَمِينَ  (الانبياء: 106:21

Translation: “We have sent you (the prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) as mercy for the entire mankind.”

It reveals that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is not for the people of a particular, tribe, or nation, rather he is for all the human beings living in the universe, no matter which geographical area they belong to, regardless which clan they belong to, indifferent to the race which they belong to and the color which they have of their skin. In this article Hadith and its authenticity principles is our subject of discussion. A special study of Syed Ahmad Saeed Kazmi thoughts will be conducted  with respect to Hadith Science and it will also be illustrated how it were addressed in the Era of Subcontinent.
