Research interests

I started my Ph.D. at the University of Leeds in October 2019. My project utilizes Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing to automatically construct a parallel corpus of Hadith, which is the reporting of different aspects of Prophet Muhammad's life. To accomplish this, we build a domain-specific segmentation tool that annotates Hadith main components, Isnad and Matn. This non-trivial task posses key challenges associated with Hadith structure that requires novel methods to overcome them. Once we mitigate these challenges, the corpus will be semantically annotated to link Hadith to the Quran using ontologies predicate logic to create an Islamic knowledge-base. Finally, the produced resources and tools will be open-sourced and integrated into a website dedicated to Hadith and computational studies.
