This encyclopedic work on Islam comprises English translations of all canonical adths, complete with their respective chains of transmission (isnds). By conflating the variant versions of the same adth, the repetitiveness of its literature has been kept wherever possible to a minimum. The latest methods of isnd analysis, described in the general introduction, have been employed in an attempt to identify the person(s) responsible for each adth. The book is organized in the alphabetical order of those persons. These are the so-called 'common links'. Each of them is listed with the tradition(s) for the wording of which he can be held accountable, or with which he can at least be associated. Within each article, the traditions are referred to in bold figures in the numerical order as they were distilled from the more than 19,000 isnds listed in Tufat al-ashrf bi ma'rifat al-atrf by the Syrian adth scholar Yusuf b. 'Abd ar-Ramn al-Mizz (d. 742/1341). Medieval commentaries as well as assorted biographical lexicons were drawn upon to illustrate the text of each tradition in all theological, social, legal and other noteworthy aspects discernible in it.
