Pharaoh had a dream: 
He was standing by the Nile, when out of the river there came up seven cows, sleek and fat, and they grazed among the reeds. After them, seven other cows, ugly and gaunt, came up out of the Nile and stood beside those on the riverbank. And the cows that were ugly and gaunt ate up the seven sleek, fat cows. Then Pharaoh woke up. He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain, healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk. After them, seven other heads of grain sprouted thin and scorched by the east wind. The thin heads of grain swallowed up the seven healthy, full heads. Then Pharaoh woke up; it had been a dream.

First, they devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles. This instruction is for new converts who may not have heard Jesus teach. The apostles are witnesses passing along the things which they have seen and heard. It is entirely possible that the apostles had common set of instruction which they regularly passed along to new converts. If this is the case, then there was a basic body of tradition within months of the death of Jesus which could be called the “teaching of the apostles.”
Secondly, they devoted themselves to fellowship. Since this word has the connotation of sharing common. At the very least this includes alms and care for the poor. 
Thirdly, they devoted themselves to “breaking of bread.” While this phrase can be used of sharing a meal together, it is likely that Luke is describing the community as celebrating some form of communion. Jesus’ practice of common meals was the foundation for this practice — they all ate and drank together as one group.
Fourthly, they devoted themselves to prayers. It would not be unusual for Jewish men to go to the Temple several times a day to pray, so the community continues to worship at the Temple regularly. 

(i) Christians Were Bound and United By A Common Truth
(ii) Christians Were Known By Their Love
(iii) Christians Gave Sacrificially to the Needy


According to James all Christian must avoid partiality. He admonished them saying " For if a man with gold rings and in fine clothing comes into ur assembly and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in and you pay attention to the rich and say "have a seat here please" while you say to the poor man "stand there" or "sit at my feet". James advised that when this happens, the members have discriminated against the poor man and 
honoured the rich. He advised them saying "God has chosen the poor to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which he has promised. He further wrote that, they would b fulfilling the royal law which says "love your neighbour 
as yourself" if they avoid partiality and favoritism.

(i) It leads to lack of commitment
(ii) It discourages people from accepting the gospel
(iii) Discrimination create division in the church

During the Call of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, many Muslims were diligent in memorizing the
(hadith) sayings of the Prophet peace be upon him.
As Islam spread through many countries, battles increased killing many memorizers of hadith. The remaining memorizers were
dispersed throughout the countries. Growing concern arose that some of memorizers might keep the hadith to themselves; verification of hadith became little and falsehood and
fabrication was being mistaken for the genuine truth. The need to write down and document the hadith became very apparent. The first person who ordered written documentation of
hadith was ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abdul-‘Aziz; who did so after he was appointed to the office of Caliphate. He viewed written documentation as the best means of preserving genuine hadith of the Prophet Peace be upon him. In “Fathul-Bari” for Ibn Hajar it was mentioned that: “The first one to write down the hadith was Ibn Shihab Az-Zuhri at the turn of the first century by the order of ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abdul ‘Aziz.”
Al-Bukhari also mentioned in “al-Fath”: ‘Umar Ibn ‘Abdul ‘Aziz wrote to all the countries.


Tafsir of Quran means the
explanation or interpretations of the verses of Quran.

i)Tafsir bil Riwaya
ii)Tafsir bil Ray

i)Firstly, it tries to explain Quran so that
the understanding of the reader about
Quran and its message increases.
Reading only the translation can give the
literal meanings of the words of Quran,
however, Tafsir comes with context in
which a particular Ayah was revealed,
hence giving a context to each and every
word, which consequently means a better
understanding of Quran and its verses.
ii)Secondly , Tafsir is also important when it comes to driving out the laws of Islam from Quran. Verses of Quran come with instructions, and then there are the
hadiths of Prophet (PBUH) that also
gives instructions. Thus, Tafsir combines
both and gives a complete and
comprehendible set of instructions to the reader.
iii)Thirdly, when there is no science
involved in the interpretation of Quran,
then ambiguity and contradiction is
surely to rise.


i)Continuity of the chain (i.e. each narrator mustactually have had contact with the narrator ‘above’ him, from whom he is claiming to narrate).
ii)Moral uprightness of each narrator (an
inobservant or sinful Muslim, who is evidently careless even about his religious practice, cannot be expected to be careful enough to reliably transmit hadith).
iii)Retention of each narrator (someone with a poor memory cannot be relied upon to transmit hadith accurately, unless he writes down hadith upon hearing them and narrates only from his manuscript).
iv)Freedom from irregularities (if A, B, C, D, E and F all heard a hadith from X, but F narrates it differently than A, B, C, D and E, then even if F is upright and generally reliable, this particular narration of his will be considered irregular.)
v)Freedom from flaws (there are other, more subtle flaws in the isnad, which can be detected by experts in hadith science, who have familiarity with information about the narrators, and with a large corpus of narrations and the correlations and divergences between them.)
