Hadith, Sunna and Hanafis
Hadith, Sunna & Hanafis was a one-day, free event on understanding Hanafi Legal Theory and its relationship with the traditions (ahadith) of the Holy Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). We were honoured by guest lectures from some esteemed speakers; incidentally, this event also coincided with the first graduation of the students in the Foundations Level of the HLCP.
