فن حدیث میں متصوفین کی مساعی جلیلہ
The Efforts of Sufis in the Science of Hadith
Keywords:Tasawwuf, Sufi, Hadith, Compilations
Tasawwuf is one of the four major fields of Islam; the Quran, Hadith, and fiqh are the three others. The Holy Quran and the Science of Hadith are the material sources for the rest of the two fields. Quranic Teachings and Spirit and Hadiths of the holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and His Seerah laid the foundations of the science of Tasawwuf. Sufi Scholars of different ages contributed a lot to the field of Tafsir and other areas of Quranic sciences, as well as they also contributed to the field of Hadith and its sciences. Their scholarship not only integrated a profound understanding of the inner meanings and ethical implications of Hadith but also involved the meticulous transmission of prophetic traditions. One can find Sufi scholars in chains of Hadiths, Sufis contributions to the field of Ilm ul Riwayyat and Ilm ul Drayyat and many Sufi scholars’ compiled Hadith collections. In Islamic intellectual history, we find many Sufi scholarly figures, like Al-Tirmidhi, Kalabadhi, Al-Fuḍayl ibn ʻIyāḍ, Ibn- e- Aarabi, Atiya bin Saeed Andulusi, Muhammad bin Sulumi, Abu Nuaim, Abdullah Ansari Haravi etc. This article will explore the contribution of Sufi scholarship to the science of Hadith and its development.
