الرسالة المستطرقة فى علوم الحديث

by محمد بن جعفر الكتاني

وقد قال ‏(‏ابن حجر‏)‏ في أول ‏(‏مقدمة فتح الباري‏)‏ ما نصه‏:‏ اعلم أن آثار النبي ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ لم تكن في عصر الصحابة وكبار التابعين مدونة في الجوامع، ولا مرتبه، لأمرين‏:‏ أحدهما‏:‏ أنهم كانوا في ابتداء الحال قد نهوا عن ذلك، كما ثبت في ‏(‏صحيح مسلم‏)‏، خشية أن يختلط بعض ذلك بالقرآن العظيم‏.‏ وثانيهما‏:‏ لسعة حفظهم، وسيلان أذهانهم، ولأن أكثرهم كانوا لا يعرفون الكتابة‏.‏ ثم حدث في أواخر عصر التابعين تدوين الآثار، وتبويب الأخبار، لمّا انتشر العلماء في الأمصار، وكثر الابتداع من الخوارج والروافض ومنكري الأقدار، واتسع الخرق على الراقع، وكاد أن يلتبس الباطل بالحق‏.‏ فأول من جمع في ذلك ‏(‏الربيع بن صبيح‏)‏ ‏(‏وسعيد ابن أبي عروبة‏)‏ وغيرهما‏.‏ دونت أحكام الحديث في منتصف القرن الثاني وكانوا يصنفون كل باب على حده، إلى أن قام كبار أهل الطبقة الثانية في منتصف القرن ‏(‏ص 6‏)‏ الثاني، فدونوا الأحكام‏.‏ فصنف ‏(‏الإمام مالك‏)‏ ‏(‏الموطأ‏)‏ بالمدينة، وتوخى فيه القوي من حديث أهل الحجاز، ومزجه بأقوال الصحابة، وفتاوى التابعين، ومن بعدهم‏.‏ أول من صنف الحديث بمكة ابن جريج وصنف ‏(‏أبو محمد عبد الملك بن عبد العزيز بن جريج‏)‏ بمكة، ‏(‏وأبو عمرو عبد الرحمن بن عمرو الأوزاعي‏)‏ بالشام، ‏(‏وأبو عبد الله سفيان بن سعيد الثوري‏)‏ بالكوفة، ‏(‏وأبو سلمة حماد بن سلمة بن دينار‏)‏ بالبصرة‏.‏ ثم تلاهم كثير من أهل عصرهم في النسج على منوالهم، إلى أن رأى بعض الأئمة منهم، أن يفرد حديث النبي ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ خاصة، وذلك على رأس المائتين‏.‏ فصنف ‏(‏عبيد الله بن موسى العبسي الكوفي‏)‏ مسندا، وصنف ‏(‏مسدد بن مسرهد البصري‏)‏ مسندا، وصنف ‏(‏أسد بن موسى الأموي‏)‏ مسندا، وصنف ‏(‏نُعيم بن حماد الخزاعي‏)‏ نزيل مصر مسندا، ثم اقتفى الأئمة بعد ذلك أثرهم، فقلَّ إمام من الحفاظ إلا وصنف حديثه على المسانيد، ‏(‏كالإمام أحمد بن حنبل‏)‏ ‏(‏و إسحاق بن راهويه‏)‏ ‏(‏وعثمان بن أبي شيبة‏)‏ وغيرهم من النبلاء‏.‏ ومنهم من صنف على الأبواب والمسانيد معا ‏(‏كأبي بكر بن أبي شيبة‏)‏ اهـ‏.‏ وعبارته في ‏(‏إرشاد الساري‏)‏ قال‏:‏ منهم من رتب على المسانيد ‏(‏كالإمام أحمد بن حنبل‏)‏ ‏(‏و إسحاق بن راهويه‏)‏ ‏(‏وأبي بكر ابن أبي شيبة‏)‏ ‏(‏وأحمد بن منيع‏)‏ ‏(‏وأبي خيثمة‏)‏ ‏(‏والحسن بن سفيان‏)‏ ‏(‏وأبي بكر البزار‏)‏ وغيرهم‏.‏ ومنهم من رتب على العلل‏:‏ بأن يجمع في كل متن طرقه، واختلاف الرواة فيه، بحيث يتضح إرسال ما يكون متصلا، أو وقف ما يكون مرفوعا، أو غير ذلك‏.‏ ومنهم من رتب على الأبواب الفقهية، وغيرها، ونوّعه أنواعا، وجمع ما ورد في كل نوع، وفي كل حكم إثباتا ونفيا، في باب فباب، بحيث يتميز ما يدخل في الصوم مثلا عما يتعلق بالصلاة‏.‏ وأهل هذه الطريقة منهم من تقيد بالصحيح ‏(‏كالشيخين‏)‏ وغيرهما، ومنهم من لم يتقيد بذلك كباقي الكتب الستة، وكان أول من صنف في الصحيح ‏(‏محمد بن إسماعيل البخاري‏)‏‏.‏ ومنهم المقتصر على ‏(‏ص 7‏)‏ الأحاديث المتضمنة للترغيب والترهيب، ومنهم من حذف الإسناد واقتصر على المتن فقط، ‏(‏كالبغوي‏)‏ في ‏(‏مصابيحه‏)‏ ‏(‏واللؤلؤي‏)‏ في ‏(‏مشكاته‏)‏ اهـ‏.‏

الأخلاق والسير في مداواة النفوس

by أبي محمد علي بن حزم الأندلسي الظاهري

قد جمعت في كتابي هذا معان كثيرة أفادنيها واهب التمييز تعالى بمرور الأيام وتعاقب الأحوال بما منحني عز وجل من التهمم بتصاريف الزمان والإشراف على أحواله حتى أنفقت في ذلك أكثر عمري وآثرت تقييد ذلك بالمطالعة له والفكرة فيه على جميع اللذات التي تميل إليها أكثر النفوس وعلى الازدياد من فضول المال ورقمت كل ما سبرت من ذلك بهذا الكتاب لينفع الله تعالى به من شاء من عباده ممن يصل إليه ما أتعبت فيه نفسي واجهدتها فيه واطلت فيه فكري فيأخذه عفوا وأهديته إليه هنيئا فيكون ذلك أفضل له من كنوز المال وعقد الأملاك إذا تدبره ويسره الله تعلي لاستعماله. وانا راج في ذلك من الله تعالي أعظم الأجر لنيتي في نفع عباده وإصلاح ما فسد من أخلاقهم ومداواة علل نفوسهم وبالله تعالى استعين وحسبنا الله ونعم الوكيل

الفصل في الملل و الآهواء و النحل

by ابن حزم

إن كثيراً من الناس كتبوا في افتراق الناس في دياناتهم ومقالاتهم كتباً كثيرة جداً فبعض أطال وأسهب وأكثر وهجر واستعمل الأغاليط والشغب فكان ذلك شاغلاً عن الفهم قاطعاً دون العلم وبعض حذف وقصر وقلل واختصر واضرب عن كثير من قوي معارضات أصحاب المقالات فكان في ذلك غير منصف لنفسه في أن يرضى لها بالغبن في الإبانة وظالماً لخصمه في أن لم يوفه حق اعتراضه وباخساً حق من قرأ كتابه إذ لم يغنه عن غيره وكلهم إلا تحلة القسم عقد كلامه تعقيداً يتعذر فهمه على كثير من أهل الفهم وحلق على المعاني من بعد حتى صار ينسي آخر كلامه أوله وأكثر هذا منهم ستائر دون فساد معانيهم فكان هذا منهم غير محمود في عاجله وآجله.

14th International Probabilistic Workshop

by Robby Caspeele Luc Taerwe Dirk Proske

This book presents the proceedings of the 14th International Probabilistic Workshop that was held in Ghent, Belgium in December 2016. Probabilistic methods are currently of crucial importance for research and developments in the field of engineering, which face challenges presented by new materials and technologies and rapidly changing societal needs and values. Contemporary needs related to, for example, performance-based design, service-life design, life-cycle analysis, product optimization, assessment of existing structures and structural robustness give rise to new developments as well as accurate and practically applicable probabilistic and statistical engineering methods to support these developments. These proceedings are a valuable resource for anyone interested in contemporary developments in the field of probabilistic engineering applications.
