This is the best accounts of the Hadith for English speakers
Martin Lings is known for his deep knowledge of Islam but similarly his great knowledge of English literature. This book is extensively referenced with his interpretations carefully explained and references to the actual Hadith. For those who don't know the Hadith are the stories told by persons who were companions of the prophet during his life. As such they are vital scripture in their own right second only to the Quran.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Unfortunately the encoding of this book as an eBook is not up to the standards of its content. This is a repeating problem for eBook vendors who don't put the effort into books that are not top sellers. That said, there are books published that are worse. I would recommend the paper edition over this one.
