Nukhbat ul-Fikr is a small yet essential primer on the terminology and sciences of Hadith penned by the medieval Shafī’y scholar and Hadith specialist, Imam Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani (rahimullah)(d. 852 AH/1449 CE).

The text is a summary and further exposition of the larger preceding works on hadith introducing its rudimentary elements, classifications, taxonomy, and systematic application.

Here is a link to a version of the book appended with its versification and the explanation thereof by Sh. Muhammad b. Isma’il al-Sana’ani. [1]

Nukhbat ul-Fikr covers the different types of transmissions and narrations, differences between accepted and rejected narrations, and general and specific hadith nomenclature.
