Opened Koran placed on table in traditional Islamic college
In a profound encounter rich with lessons, the story of Prophet Mūsā (Moses) and al-Khiḍr stands as a quintessential example of the pursuit of knowledge and the realisation of divine wisdom. This narrative, deeply embedded in Islamic tradition, unfolds in the Qur'an where Mūsā, a prophet known for his wisdom and devotion, seeks to learn from al-Khiḍr, a figure endowed with unique, God-given knowledge.

In today's diverse and cosmopolitan societies, there is a wide range of attitudes, interests, and ideologies among Muslims. However, this diversity has also led to many disputes, and it is no longer enough to simply identify as a Muslim without specifying a label or sect. This can create a problem for those who are uneducated in Islam, as they may distance themselves from scholars or even leave the religion altogether. The issue of scholarly difference, or "Ikhtilaf," is a common concern for many Muslims, and it is important to address its root causes to prevent further confusion and division within the community.

Hadith terminology (muṣṭalaḥ al-ḥadīth) is the body of terminology in Islam which specifies the acceptability of the sayings (hadith) attributed to the prophet Muhammad and other early Islamic figures of significance, such as Muhammad's family and/or successors. Individual terms distinguish between those hadith considered rightfully attributed to their source or detail the faults of those of dubious provenance. Formally, it has been defined by Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani as: "knowledge of the principles by which the condition of the narrator and the narrated are determined." (Muhammad, 2008)
