Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

This first collection of hadith, consisting of 19 volumes, includes the Seven Great collections of Hadith in Arabic (Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abi Daud, Jami' al-Tirmidhi, Sunan al-Nasa'i, Sunan Ibn Maja and the Muwatta' Malik ). In addition the collection includes a reprint of the one hundred year old Sultaniyya edition of Sahih al-Bukhari, in three volumes published by Bulaq Press with its valuable marginal commentary. Also included within this first collection is a two volume analytical indices to all the printed texts, entitled Maknaz al-Mustarshidin which includes amongst its references (tying all the source books together) the relevant hadith number in al-Mizzi's Tuhfat al-Ashraf.

Accompanying the printed work the encyclopaedia includes a revolutionary CD-ROM database which contains all the hadith collections provided in printed form, which may be accessed by 21 different kinds of searches of varying degrees of complexity.

This publication is the fruit of 15 years of editing, revision and research by a team of religious scholars who have assembled the most comprehensive collection of hadith manuscripts from all over the world as well as all previously published editions. Painstakingly compared and revised with every page being approved by the Islamic Research Academy of al-Azhar, the Hadith Encyclopaedia revives the best traditions of Islamic scholarship. At the same time, one of the Foundation's projects has been the development of the world's finest Arabic typeface with the assistance of leading experts in Arabic calligraphy. This is based on the font used for the 1932 King Fu'ad Edition of the Qur'an, generally acclaimed as the summit of Arabic typography, in a yet more elaborated digital form.

This is just the beginning of an ongoing project (four new collections will be published in the new year, and so on) that has brought together Egyptian and Azhar scholars, Saudi, and Western Muslim intellectuals to produce a work of exquisite beauty and profound importance for Islam and the Muslim world.

The Encyclopaedia of Hadith CD-ROM

The Encyclopaedia of Hadith CD-ROM contains a database which includes all the hadith collections provided in printed form, which may be accessed by searches of various kinds and of various degrees of complexity.

Special features of The Hadith Dadatbase CD-ROM:

1. Printing

The user of the database may save the data collected either to paper or to word processing files. This data may include lists of references as well as the vocalised texts of the hadiths themselves.

2. The "Add to favourites" function:

This function allows the user at any point in his searching to seamlessly add any hadith or other reference to a favourites list simply by a right-click of the mouse.

At the end of his searching he can print out or save this favourites or reference list for use later or for looking up the references in the printed hadith volumes.

3. Choosing a Search Range

The high-speed search algorithm facilities are rendered more efficient still by selecting the hadith collection or collections in which the search is to be made.

4. Searching the Database

Any word, or series of letters or numbers, can be the basis of a search. The programme displays the number of 'hits', and also allows the user to make simultaneous searches for separate items. Double-clicking on the segment of text found brings up the entire vocalised hadith.

The following search types are available in the computer database:

- Quranic Verses. These may be searched for by either sura name or number.

- Atraf. Searching by these key phrases is easier than searching the entire database, and also yields information on similar but not identical material.

- Hadith Qudsi (hadiths spoken by God). Rapid searches of the entire Hadith Qudsi content of the Database are possible under this head.

- "Famous Hadiths" (al-ahadith al-musamma). This index allows a hadith to be located by the name by which it is popularly known.

- Poetry. Arabic poetic quotations appearing in the Hadith Database may be located readily by entering part of the poem, or the name of the poet or narrator.

- Place Names. Searches may be made for the names of cities, seas, mountains and other geographical features.

- Numbers. Any number or fraction appearing in the Database can be accessed using this function.

- Peoples and Tribes.

- Proper Names. Any individual named in the text, even very briefly, can be located and identified by his full name. Integration of information from the commentaries means that individuals referred to in hadith texts simply as "so-and-so" can also be fully identified.

- Subject Headings. Rapid searches can be made of the names of topics appearing in chapter headings in the hadith collections.

- Historical Events.

- Unusual (gharib) Words. The Database allows the user to access information from the commentaries and the dictionaries when encountering unusual Arabic words in a hadith.

- Isnad (chain of transmission). The Hadith Database makes available a series of operations which facilitate study of this characteristic feature of the literature. For instance, where a single narrator is identified using different forms of his name, these are all identifiable by the system as referring to the same individual. It is also possible to create graphic representations of the relationships between teachers and their pupils.

- Hadith Assessment. Where the compiler of a hadith collection has himself passed judgment on the reliability of a text or an individual narrator, this is indicated in the Database. The system allows several ways of sorting and displaying this information, so that, for instance, all the judgments on or by a named individual may be displayed together.
