نماذج المؤتلف والمختلف فی الأفراد والغرائب للإمام الدارقطنی
Zabt Ul Asma (ضبط الأسماء والأنساب) is a great art and a noble science. Scholars absolutely agree on its importance, praise those who care about it, and abandon those who neglect it. This research paper contains an introduction, three chapters, and a conclusion. In the preface, the significance of the topic has been discussed. The first chapter deals with a short introduction of the book Al Garaib wal Afraad; while the second chapter presents a brief introduction of life of Imam Dar Qutni. The third chapter elucidates examples of Zabt from the book. In conclusion, the outcomes of the research have been provided. The research is descriptive and empirical in its nature as it will give evidences from the book. The book consists of 6400 Afrad Ahadith; I have just conducted research from Musnad Muaaz Bin Jabl, Hadith number 4284 to 4592 around 308 Ahadith. From these Ahadith, I encountered 7 such Ahadith where the different shape of letters can be found.
