Asalamualaykum Dear Ulema who have constructed this course for us.

It had been a very spiritual , informative and easy way to learn how to perform Umrah and Hajj.

‘ISLAMIC KNOWLEDGE’ My heartfelt duas to you for this invaluable opportunity in helping my understanding and appreciation for the significance of hajj. I had not anticipated at all that any course could ‘move me’ in such an emotional yet uplifting way. There were moments when partaking that my feelings and visual imagination of our prophet pbuh hajj  felt so real, its unexplainable. It may be Allah has not called me as yet but my humble duas will continue in seeking to be blessed with travel to Allah house. To all my dear sister hujjaj who have partook on this training and will be leaving soon. May this the most blessed and beneficial time of your life, If you remember please make duaa for the ummah of prophet Muhammad pbuh, fir us all to fulfill our obligations in the most beautiful manner too. May Allah bless you and your loved ones with a blessed hajj, a safe return and Hajj Mabrur inshaAllah

I pray Allah rewards everyone behind Ik courses for every second spent in prepping to deliver an intense journey. A massive JazakAllah for answering all of our questions! We definitely got so much more than we paid for honestly. Can’t wait to join more courses in the future iA.

I found it incredibly beneficial and insightful, although I regrettably was not able to attend all the lessons in person due to my intense schedule – but it was quite unique compared to other courses I’ve taken in the past, and insha’Allah would love to do it again


Surpassed all my expectations. May Allah reward the instructor


Yes Alhamdulillah it was very good, beneficial and i learnt a lot. It was clear to see the asaatizah had a deep understanding of the subject topic.


The teachers alhamdullilah are excellent in explaining the histories and various standards employed by different muhaddithin with regards to riwayaat etc. In particular I found the session on Sama’a the most interesting and insightful, and added to my love and appreciation for the depth of the science of hadith as a whole


The structure was presented very well and was well structured and detailed.

A Study of Athar al-Ḥadīth al-Sharīf


I’ve benefited greatly through this course so far- the approach to dealing with Hadith in our tradition is far clearer to me now alhamdulillah. There isn’t much focus on Ulum al-Hadith in the Alimiyya course which in my opinion leaves students lacking in understanding of how to approach Hadith. Would highly recommend for advanced Alimiyya students/graduates. Lessons are jam packed with useful knowledge and delivered very professionally. It’s evident a lot of research and effort has gone behind each presentation . May Allah put Barakah in this endeavour – Jazakumullah khayr


السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Mufti Sahib, due to time zone differences, I haven’t been able to attend the Athar Al-Hadith classes. However, Alhumdulillah I have been keeping up with the recordings and have them very beneficial, insightful, and balanced MashaAllah. 

May Allah Ta’ala continue to increase your Ilm Nafi’ and Ikhlas

This course on Athar Al-Hadīth Al-Sharīf has been amazing so far and once we get into the kitaab I’m sure it will only get better! So many aspects of this course and your style of teaching in general that I love, which I wish other teachers utilised. Just to name two huge ones:

The sheer amount of references and citations shows high levels of research and اطلاع on books and scholars. Very rare for something to not be referenced. Teaches us lots of sources.

The critical yet fair and balanced approach of looking at the view/statements of all scholars, whether they are those who may be from our own backgrounds or those who are from other backgrounds. Giving everyone their due right and respect for their contributions to Deen regardless of whether we agree with everything they say or not. Many scholars and teachers write someone off immediately if they disagree with a single view of theirs. Here we learn that all sincere scholars have something to offer, so take the good and leave what you don’t agree with. This open minded, yet balanced and grounded approach is very much appreciated, and I think the one thing I’ve gained and learnt the most from this course so far is أدب الاختلاف – respect other opinions. Be respectful of other people and their views even if you don’t agree with everything. 

May Allah accept and grant barakah. Aameen.

Assalamualaikum Sheikh

Your class is so much beneficial I fight with my sleep and work schedule to attend the live session. Masha allah your way of viewing the opposite camp is unique and more cultured which is the must take away from this course the adab of expressing differences

Muhammad Irfan, India

AsSalaamu Alaykum dearest Mufti. 

Your informed, well-researched & critical course thus far has academically unpacked and contextualised the differences between the ahl al-ra’y vis-à-vis the ahl al-hadith. I am beginning to appreciate the overlap between reason and revelation through a formative study of our Islamic intellectual thought. 

Your prelude has been invaluable and, I’d have to admit: it’ll take me a few times to listen to the recordings before I can fully appreciate and understand your research. 

وفقكم الله ونفع الله بكم الإسلام والمسلمين!

An Introduction to Ḥanafī Uṣūl al-Ḥadīth – A Study of the Chapter of the Sunnah from Al-Manār

Course Overview

Did the Ḥanafīs view the Sunnah in the same manner as the muḥaddithūn? Why do we notice the ḥanafīs have a different approach towards the Sunnah and what is the rational basis for this difference in approach? Whilst the muḥaddithūn seem to look at both the chain of narration and the text of a narration, their greater focus is on the chain of narration. This seems to be the complete opposite of how the ḥanafīs assess narrations, they first seem to look at the text and then the chain of narration. In this course, through 9 detailed lessons, we cover the chapter of the Sunnah from Al-Manār of Ḥāfiẓ al-Dīn al-Nasafī raḥimahullah (d.710 AH). We look at the development of the approach of the ḥanafīs towards the Sunnah through the lens of the classical writers such as Al-Sarakhsī raḥimahullah (d.483 AH) and Al-Bazdawī raḥimahullah (d.482 AH), as well as contemporary writers such as Shaykh Sohail Ḥanīf and Dr. Anas Sarmīnī. This course is a must for any serious student of Fiqh and Ḥadīth.

Course instructor: (Muftī) Muadh Chati

Course Duration: 9 Lessons

All documents/powerpoints will be provided in a downloadable format


Alhamdulillah, the course was very beneficial and also enjoyable. Studying by the teacher, Mufti Muadh, has not only showed his passion for the science, but has also edified me.

His delivery of the course was perfect, a pace at which everything could be understood, yet comprehensive. The engagement on the group was a reflection of his passion and dedication towards the subject, and the materials provided before and after the lesson made the course beneficial not just for the advanced, but even the beginners.
