Tafsil Wasāil al-Shiah fi Tahsil Masāil al-Shariah by Sheikh Hor al-Amili is an Encyclopedia of the Shia jurisprudential narrations which since its composition has attracted the attention of the jurists and researchers of hadith. The author in this book by compiling those hadiths with the same content argues that understanding the tradition of the Immaculate, peace be upon them, is one of the most essential religious sources and texts. Sheikh Hor al-Amili by establishing the authenticity of the narrations of the Immaculate, peace be upon them, and their reliability, and employing different sources of hadith and consulting several manuscripts of each source, and also referring to the negligence of the transmitters and scribes of hadith, has made the understanding of hadith possible. Moreover, the author by explaining the meaning of the difficult words and terms and referring to the verbal and technical meaning has made the understanding of the narrations more convenient. He also considers the divisions made in the book a prerequisite for understanding hadith and in consequence its better appreciation. Sheikh by looking carefully into the verbal and nonverbal contexts has prepared the way for going beyond the apparent meaning of the narrations to reach the main intention of the immaculate, peace be upon him. By considering the nonverbal contexts, he reveals the metaphors and ironies in the speech of the immaculate, peace be upon him, and by concentrating on the disjunctive verbal contexts or the narrations with the same content of the main narrations, he explains the relations of restriction, explanation and modification among hadiths. Besides, he has not overlooked the implied indications of the imperative and prohibitive forms and has understood whether they are recommended or not from their implied meaning.
