www.MutawatirHadiths.com Project
« on: January 23, 2013, 03:16:31 AM »
As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

I have had in my possession the 6,543 Mutawatir Hadiths that were available for download on the Saudi Arabia's official Hadiths Search Website at: www.al-islam.com (they changed the links around).  I downloaded all of them and kept them.  I slightly used them when I demonstrated that a Hadith was indeed a Mutawatir at:  www.answering-christianity.com/360_joints.htm.

There are 9 Sunni Hadiths Volumes.  They are:

1-  Sahih Bukhari.

2-  Sahih Muslim.

3-  Sunan Al-Tirmithi.

4-  Sunan Al-Nisa'ee.

5-  Sunan Abu Dawud.

6-  Sunan Ibn Maja.

7-  Musnad Ahmed.

8-  Muwattaa' Malik.

9-  Sunan Al-Darmi.

The Hadiths, in general, from these volumes and others, are divided into 5 categories:

1-  The Mutawatir Hadiths - Those are ones that exist multiple times in a single volume and they exist in many or all of the Hadiths' main 9 volumes.  Those are the strongest and the best Hadiths.  They were common knowledge to the people, 1,500 years ago, and the people had successfully passed them down from generation to generation.     
 
For example: They are like the proverbs, wisdoms and sayings that you learned from your parents, teachers, friends and life in general.
 
2-  The Ahaad or Hasan Hadiths - Ahaad is derived from Ahad, which means Absolute One, and the latter is one of Allah Almighty's 99 Divine Attributes.  Hasan means good.  Both refer to the same Hadiths, and they are Hadiths that have complete good, solid and trustworthy people in their chain of narrations, but they were not narrated by multiple sources.
 
A single Hadith is narrated by multiple people.  Regardless of their number, the Hadith is still considered as one Hadith.  Multiple Hadiths or multiple sources mean that more than one Hadith exists, with each Hadith having its own chain of narrators.  An Ahaad or Hasan Hadith is one that is either one or very few of the same Hadiths.
 
An Ahaad or Hasan Hadith is not a Mutawatir one, and thus, it is difficult to use multiple sources to verify its originality.  With Mutawatir Hadiths, we could use them against each others to validate and authenticate each others.  If you have a certain story, and you have more than 20 Hadiths speaking about it, then it is much easier to determine what the original Saying of the Prophet was like.  This is not possible with the Ahaad or Hasan Hadiths.  You have to take them at their face values and trust that they had not been altered by people who came much later, either intentionally or unintentionally.
 
3-  The Da'eef Hadiths - They are the weak Hadiths.  Da'eef means weak in Arabic, and a da'eef Hadith is one that is not Mutawatir and not an Ahaad or Hasan one.  It is one that has questionable narrators in its chain.  They were either unknown, or they were people who had a history of questionable integrity.  The Hadith could be true and it could be false.  It is considered weak and doubtful.  Most Muslim Scholars reject the Da'eef Hadiths.
 
4-  The Maw'qoof Hadiths - They are also called Maq'too'a Hadiths.  Maw'qoof means stopped, and Maq'too'a means "is cut" in Arabic.  These are Hadiths that have gaps or missing links in their chain of narrators.  They too are considered weak and very doubtful.  Most Muslim Scholars reject the Maw'qoof Hadiths.
 
5-  The Maw'doo'a Hadiths - They are ones that are suspicious.  They appear, based on their text and other factors, to be fabrications that were invented on the mouths of the Prophet and/or his companions.  Almost all of the Muslim scholars reject these Hadiths.

There are also the Qudsi Hadiths, and these are divided between the Mutawatir and Ahaad Hadiths.  Qudsi or Qudusi Hadiths are ones that were inspired by the Holy Spirit (روح القدس).  Qudus (قدس) means holy, and Rouh (روح) means spirit in Arabic.

For more information, visit: http://www.answering-christianity.com/hadiths_of_the_fly.htm.

I've always wanted to have a dedicated Online Mutawatir Hadith Search Engine.  This is not to put down the Ahaad (singular) Hadiths.  But since they're the strongest and most reliable among all of the Hadiths, then it would be nice to dedicate a search engine for them.  And this is exactly what I will do with www.MutawatirHadiths.com, insha'Allah.  The 6,543 Hadiths are currently all in Arabic.  The Saudi government hasn't translated much of them into English.  I will therefore do the following, insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing):

1-  Build a Search Engine for all of these Hadiths, which are divided among the 9 Sunni mentioned Volumes above.

2-  Since all of them are in Arabic, I will post a link near each returned Hadith, by the Search Engine, that says something like this: "Translate this Hadith into English".

3-  The reader can submit a translation of the Hadith through the form that I will create, and in turn, I will look at it and either approve it, reject it, or modify it.

This insha'Allah will allow everyone who speaks Arabic to help.  I will personally work on the translations on daily basis, insha'Allah, once I get the files and programs online.

Please let me know if you have something helpful to add to this project.  If there is another website out there that already has them, then please let me know.  I searched and couldn't find any.  There are also many brothers and sisters who also inquired about such a website or database on other blogs.  If there is a dedicated website for the Mutawatir Hadiths out there, then I will make sure that they get linked or even routed to, insha'Allah.

The website, www.MutawatirHadiths.com, currently routes you to the website's main page.  Once I get it going, then I'll change it to its dedicated page and section, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Mutawatir is derived from Tawatur, which means:

1-  To repeat a text over and over.

2-  To establish a text with strong backup in authenticity and authority.

Like I mentioned above, there are 9 Sunni Hadith volumes.  The Mutawatir Hadiths are the strongest and most popular among them.  They exist in many, and sometime all of the volumes, and are repeated multiple times in each volume, and are narrated by several or many reliable people.

I hope this helps, insha'Allah.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah
