New Blog: Dar al-Hadith

I have started a third occasional blog, Dar al-Hadith, for posting of mostly short primary source materials in English from Muslim sources (including, but not solely, hadith from both Sunnis and Shi'is), with little comment, though I will provide citations to the original sources of the material and will also identify whether it is a Sunni or Shi'i (or other) hadith or source. I hope to post several times a week, at least, and whenever I run across something interesting.

The first post is now up, on two hadith on jihad from the key Twelver Shi'i collection Furu' al-Kafi compiled by the ninth century muhaddith (hadith scholar) Abu Ja'far Muhammad bin Ya'qub bin Ishaq al-Kulayni al-Razi (al-Kulayni).
