Meaning of a passage in Hadith terminology

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Could you kindly explain the meaning of the following text from Allamah Abdullah Sirajuddin’s commentary on Bayquniyah:

فحقيقة الرواية : هي نقل ما ورد من السنة ونحوها واسناد ذلك الى من عزي اليه بتحديث أو اخبار ونحوهما
وشروط الرواية هي تحمّل راويها لما يرويه بنوع من انواع التحمّل من سماع أو عرض أو اجازة أو نحو ذلك

I have understood it as follows:

The actual science of narrating Hadith is to transmit what has come down from Sunnah and to attribute it to the one who said it by using words like حدثنا or اخبرنا etc. The conditions for narrating is for the student to have received the Hadith in one of the accepted ways of receiving/studying such as listening, hearing the narration being read to the teacher, or the teacher giving permission to narrate it etc.


Your understanding is correct.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
