I am a postgraduate student in the faculty of ḥadīth and am eagerly waiting to request my professors to give me permission in obtaining the famous sanad (chain of hadīth to Allāh’s Messenger peace and blessings upon him) consisting Bābā Yūsuf al-Hirawī who is said to have lived 300 years. Could you give me some information regarding this chain and it’s importance?
Thank you for your query. May Allāh facilitate success in your endeavors and increase your love for His dīn and it’s sciences. Āmīn!
