The Words of the Imams

Al-Shaykh Al-Saduq and the Development of Shi'i Hadith Literature
  • By George Warner
Product Description

Ibn Babawayh - also known by his honorific title of al-Shaykh al-Saduk - was an Imami Shi'i scholar of the early Buwayhid period. He is best known as a major hadith scholar, being the author of Man la yahduruhu al-Faqih, one of the four canonical books of Shi'ite Islam.

Despite his importance, al-Saduq has received little scholarly attention. Neither is there any book length study on Shi'i hadith literature, the discipline being overwhelmingly dominated by studies of Sunni hadith. George Warner's book fill this gap. It is a study of al-Saduq - one of the foundational figures of Twelver Shi'ism, a scholar of the hadith, a member of the Buwayhid court and a writer or great skill and ingenuity - and it sheds light on the richness of the later Abbasid religious and intellectual culture.
