The Scholarly Evaluation of Ahadi’th Prescribed for Secondary School Certificate Part-I
Islamic Studies is included as a compulsory subject in the Syllabi taught in Schools, Colleges and Universities of Pakistan. While preparing the prescribed courses intended for Islamic Studies (compulsory) special emphasis is placed on focusing the entire religion i.e Beliefs, Worship, Ethics etc in the course. Translation and Tafsir of Qura’nic verses and Hadith is also made part of the curriculum. Along with the modern education a student can also be informed about Islam, so that a young generation with a sound knowledge on all lines emerges from educational institutions to meet the future challenges. To achieve this goal great attention is paid to the preparation of the curricula by using experties in the field, but even then errors do occur in the form of incorrect wording of the Hadiths and inclusion of less authentic sayings of the holy prophet (SAW) which amounts to committing a great sin by misguiding the youth regarding the factual position of the divine knowledge thus leaving the mind ill-informed about their religion which might prove disastrous for the society in future as the young mind carries with him whatever he learns at school and his formative years. There is a great demand for judging the validity of the less authentic sayings of the holy prophet (SAW) and the need for passing them through research filters is being felt in the educational circles. The article under consideration here aims at probing into the details of the origin of the Hadiths prescribed for the1st part of the Secondary School Certificate Course.
