Question:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah!

There are so many confusing Hadiths. How to sort them?


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم


In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Answer:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh,

It may outwardly appear to someone that there are so many Hadith and some of them even contradict others. However, in reality, they aren’t any serious contradictions among the Hadith which have remained without explanation, rather when one studies the Hadith sciences for an extended period of time, he understands the explanation to the outward contradictions.

The muhaddithun and the fuqaha have already sorted the Hadith in order to reconcile between the contradicting ones, therefore, for the one who wants to understand them better, should refer to Hadith Studies.

And only Allah knows best
