  • Sunnah Extraction From Historical Narrations (Adhan In Newborn's Ear)

    Posted by Shaharyar Sabeeh on October 22, 2023 at 2:50 am

    Assalamualaikum!

    Ghamidi Saheb excludes the tradition of giving Azaan in a newborn’s ear from his given list of Sunnah. According to him, if we look at the content of the earlier centuries, then it becomes clear that this way adopted later and was never given as Sunnah (i.e mass transmission).

    My question is, if the principle of inclusion and exclusion ‘of what should be there in the category of Sunnah’ is based upon what we can extract from the written stuff of the earlier centuries, then does that not make Sunnah also dependant on narrations?

    Because in the end, we are getting help in making the list of Sunnah from the written work of early times.

    And what if there was nothing available to verify that? (We would end understanding much stuff as Sunnah that God knows whether it should be there or not).
