Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Culture and Information, Awwad Bin Saleh al-Awwad, has explained the construction of the Prophet’s hadith complex by King Salman as an unprecedented achievement for the Sunnah ministry. Hadith is the second source of Islamic law after the Qur’an.
“This is an unprecedented achievement that will preserve Sunnah with scientific methods and protect the second source of Islamic law,” he said as quoted by Al Arabiya on Saturday (21/10).
The minister said the board of senior scientists would be formed for the complex and would consist of the world’s leading Hadist scientists. According to him, the complex will study the contents and narrators of hadith to prove the weak and false of the original speech in accordance with the Qur’an and Sharia.
“This is in addition to King Salman’s great service to Islam, his deep concern about Muslims and his concern for raising people and projecting the true image of Islam,” he explained.
Awwad says the complex, which will be based in Medina, will be a reference to all authentic and authentic Hadiths and actions of the Prophet. He thanked and thanks to King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman, deputy prime minister and defense minister for their consistent efforts to serve Muslims and Muslims everywhere.
