Hadith Terminology and Studying Chains of Narrators
In terms of Ihsan. Its name comes from the word Sunnah , referring to the behaviour of Muhammad. In English, its doctrines and practices are sometimes called Sunnism ,  while adherents are known as Sunni Muslims, Sunnis, Sunnites and Ahlus Sunnah. Sunni Islam is sometimes referred to as "orthodox Islam",    though some scholars view this translation as inappropriate.
The Quran , together with hadith especially those collected in Kutub al-Sittah and binding juristic consensus , form the basis of all traditional jurisprudence within Sunni Islam. Sharia rulings are derived from these basic sources, in conjunction with analogical reasoning , consideration of public welfare and juristic discretion , using the principles of jurisprudence developed by the traditional legal schools.
The Arabic term Sunna , according to which Sunnis are named, is old and roots in pre-Islamic language. It was used for traditions which a majority of people followed. It was probably Ibn Taymiyyah , who used the short-term for the first time. The word pair "Sunnah-Shia" is also used on Western research literature to denote the Sunni-Shia contrast. One of the earliest supporting documents for ahl as-sunna derives from the basric scholar Muhammad Ibn Siri d.
His is mentioned in the Sahih of Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj quoted with: "Formerly one did not aksed about the Isnad. But when the fitna started, one said: 'Name us your informants'. One would then respond to them: if they were Sunnah people, you accept their hadith. But if they are people of the Innovations , the hadith was rejected.
The term ahl sunna designated in this situation whose, who stayed away from heretic teachings of the different warring parties. The term ahl as-sunna was always a laudatory designation.
Abu Hanifa d. Thus it has been recorded, the Kufic scholar of the Quran Abu Bakr ibn'auyash d. In the 9th Century, one started to extent the term ahl as-sunna with further positive additions. When the expression 'ahl as-sunna wal-jama' appeared for the first time, is not entirely clear.
As a pair, these terms already appear in the 9th Century. But also the Karramiyya founded by Muhammad ibn Karram d. Abu l-Hasan al-Ashari used the expression ahl as-sunna wal-jama rarely,  and preferred another combination. Later Asharites like al-Isfaranini d. There are different opinnions regarding what the term jama in the phrase ahl as-sunna wal-jama actually means, among Muslim scholars. In the Sunni Creed by at-Tahawi d. One common mistake is to assume that Sunni Islam represents a normative Islam that emerged during the period after Muhammad's death, and that Sufism and Shi'ism developed out of Sunni Islam.
Both Sunnism and Shiaism are the end products of several centuries of competition between ideologies. Both sects used each other to further cement their own identities and doctrines. Sunni recognition includes the aforementioned Abu Bakr as the first, Umar as the second, Uthman as the third, and Ali as the fourth. Subsequently, Hasan was poisoned to death and Muawiya enjoyed unchallenged power.
Not honouring his treaty with Hasan he however nominated his son Yazid to succeed him. There was no clearly accepted formula for determining succession in the Abbasid caliphate.
Two or three sons or other relatives of the dying caliph emerged as candidates to the throne, each supported by his own party of supporters. A trial of strength ensued and the most powerful party won and expected favours of the caliph they supported once he ascended the throne. The caliphate of this dynasty ended with the death of the Caliph al-Ma'mun in CE, when the period of Turkish domination began. The fall, at the end of World War I of the Ottoman Empire , the biggest Sunni empire for six centuries, brought the caliphate to an end.
This resulted in Sunni protests in far off places including the Khilafat Movement in India, which was later on upon gaining independence from Britain divided into Sunni dominated Pakistan and secular India. Pakistan, the most populous Sunni state at its birth, however later got partitioned into Pakistan and Bangladesh. The demise of Ottoman caliphate also resulted in the emergence of Saudi Arabia , a dynastic absolute monarchy with the support of the British and Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab , the founder of Wahhabism.
The expediencies of cold war resulted in encouragement of Afghan refugees in Pakistan to be radicalised, trained and armed to fight the communist regime backed by USSR forces in Afghanistan giving birth to Taliban. The Taliban wrestled power from the communists in Afghanistan and formed a government under the leadership of Mohammed Omar , who was addressed as the Emir of the faithful, an honorific way of addressing the caliph.
The sequence of events of the 20th century has led to resentment in some quarters of the Sunni community due to the loss of pre-eminence in several previously Sunni-dominated regions such as the Levant , Mesopotamia , the Balkans , the North Caucasus and the Indian sub continent. Nevertheless, most non-Arabic commentators regard them as useless or not applicable. Tafsir'ilmi stands for alleged scientific miracles found in the Qur'an.
In short, the idea is that the Qur'an contains knowledge about subjects an author of the 7th century could not possibly have. Such interpretations are popular among many commentators. However, some scholars, such as the Commentators of Al-Azhar University , reject this approach, arguing the Qur'an is a text for religious guidance, not for science and scientific theories that may be disproved later; thus tafsir'ilmi might lead to interpreting Qur'anic passages as falsehoods.
Sunnis believe the companions of Muhammad to be reliable transmitters of Islam, since God and Muhammad accepted their integrity. Medieval sources even prohibit cursing or vilifying them. Sunnis also believe that the companions were true believers since it was the companions who were given the task of compiling the Qur'an. Sunni Islam does not have a formal hierarchy.
Both religious and political leadership are in principle open to all Muslims. During Midday Mosque services on Fridays, the congregation will choose a well-educated person to lead the service, known as a Khateeb one who speaks.
A study conducted by the Pew Research Center in and released January  found that there are 1. Regarding the question which dogmatic tendencies are to be assigned to Sunnism, there is no agreement among Muslim scholars.
Since the early modern period, is the idea that a total of three groups belong to the Sunnis: 1. It is used, for example, in the final document of the Grozny Conference. Founded by Abu al-Hasan al-Ash'ari — This theological school of Aqeedah was embraced by many Muslim scholars and developed in parts of the Islamic world throughout history; al-Ghazali wrote on the creed discussing it and agreeing upon some of its principles.
Ash'ari theology stresses divine revelation over human reason. Contrary to the Mu'tazilites, they say that ethics cannot be derived from human reason, but that God's commands, as revealed in the Quran and the Sunnah the practices of Muhammad and his companions as recorded in the traditions, or hadith , are the sole source of all morality and ethics.
Regarding the nature of God and the divine attributes, the Ash'ari rejected the Mu'tazili position that all Quranic references to God as having real attributes were metaphorical. The Ash'aris insisted that these attributes were as they "best befit His Majesty". The Arabic language is a wide language in which one word can have 15 different meanings, so the Ash'aris endeavor to find the meaning that best befits God and is not contradicted by the Quran.
Therefore, when God states in the Quran, "He who does not resemble any of His creation", this clearly means that God cannot be attributed with body parts because He created body parts. Ash'aris tend to stress divine omnipotence over human free will and they believe that the Quran is eternal and uncreated. Founded by Abu Mansur al-Maturidi d. It is more influenced by Persian interpretations of Islam and less on the traditions established within Arabian culture. Ethics on the other hand, do not need prophecy or revelation, but can be understood by reason alone.
One of the tribes, the Seljuk Turks , migrated to Turkey , where later the Ottoman Empire was established. Thus, wherever can be found Hanafi followers, there can be found the Maturidi creed.
Traditionalist theology is a movement of Islamic scholars who reject rationalistic Islamic theology kalam in favor of strict textualism in interpreting the Quran and sunnah. It is also sometimes referred to as athari as by several other names. Adherents of traditionalist theology believe that the zahir literal, apparent meaning of the Qur'an and the hadith have sole authority in matters of belief and law; and that the use of rational disputation is forbidden even if it verifies the truth.
They do not attempt to conceptualize the meanings of the Qur'an rationally, and believe that their realities should be consigned to God alone tafwid.
Traditionalist theology emerged among scholars of hadith who eventually coalesced into a movement called ahl al-hadith under the leadership of Ahmad ibn Hanbal. While Ash'arism and Maturidism are often called the Sunni "orthodoxy", traditionalist theology has thrived alongside it, laying rival claims to be the orthodox Sunni faith.
The Andalusian scholar Ibn Hazm d. The Hanbali scholar Ibn Taymiyyah d. In his opinion, this includes all Islamic groups except the Shiite Rafidites. There is broad agreement that the Sufis are also part of Sunnism. This view can already be found in the Shafiite scholar Abu Mansur al-Baghdadi d. However, there were also Muslim scholars who wanted to exclude the Sufis from Sunnism.
In the eleventh-century, Sufism, which had previously been a less "codified" trend in Islamic piety, began to be "ordered and crystallized"  into orders which have continued until the present day. The contemporary Salafi and Wahhabi strands of Sunnis, however, do not accept the traditional stance on mystical practices. There are many intellectual traditions within the field of Islamic law , often referred to as legal schools.
These varied traditions reflect differing viewpoints on some laws and obligations within Islamic law. While one school may see a certain act as a religious obligation, another may see the same act as optional. These schools aren't regarded as sects; rather, they represent differing viewpoints on issues that are not considered the core of Islamic belief.
Historians have differed regarding the exact delineation of the schools based on the underlying principles they follow. Many traditional scholars saw Sunni Islam in two groups: Ahl al-Ra'i, or "people of reason", due to their emphasis on scholarly judgment and discourse; and Ahl al-Hadith , or "people of traditions", due to their emphasis on restricting juristic thought to only what is found in scripture.
Interpreting Islamic law by deriving specific rulings — such as how to pray — is commonly known as Islamic jurisprudence. The schools of law all have their own particular tradition of interpreting this jurisprudence.
As these schools represent clearly spelled out methodologies for interpreting Islamic law, there has been little change in the methodology with regard to each school. While conflict between the schools was often violent in the past,  the four Sunni schools recognize each other's validity and they have interacted in legal debate over the centuries.

This study interrogates the text about its conception of the authority of hadith in order to allow for an interpretative reading of its view of hadith transmission. It proceeds by distinguishing five thematical sections in the text concerning respectively the epistemological foundation of hadith transmission, its functional purpose, the techniques and conditions of its authoritativeness and the significance of its ethos. The content of the hadith corresponds somehow to the significance of its first transmitters. This hadith expresses a vision of Islam in which religious authority is thought of in terms of its rootedness in the prophetic authority 3 and in which it is the transmission of hadith which confers this religious authority of prophetic origin. It seems as if this hadith represents a kind of verbal investiture. The dramatic knot of this tradition is constituted then by the persons who are summoned to succeed and represent the Prophet after his death.

Клубы дыма начали вытекать из треснувших оконных рам. Сьюзан в отчаянии колотила в дверную панель, но все было бесполезно. Шифр, подумала. Кабинет постепенно утопал в дыму. Стало трудно дышать. Сьюзан бессильно прижалась к двери, за которой, всего в нескольких сантиметрах от нее, работала вентиляция, и упала, задыхаясь и судорожно хватая ртом воздух. Сьюзан закрыла глаза, но ее снова вывел из забытья голос Дэвида.
