Hadith:Muhammad’s Legacy in the Medieval and Modern World

The bulk of Islamic law does not come from the Quran but from hadith, first-hand reports of the Prophet Muhammad’s words and deeds. However, Islamic scholars, past and present, have been faced with complex questions of historical authenticity. In this wide-ranging introduction, Jonathan A. C. Brown explores the collection and criticism of hadith, and the controversy surrounding its role in modern Islam. This edition features a new chapter on how hadiths have been used politically, both historically and in the Arab Spring and its aftermath. This book is perfect for students, academics, and general readers.
