Abstract

This study aims to investigate a hadith (prophetic tradition) whether it is acceptable or unacceptable based on the trustworthness and weaknesses of narrator in the hadith scholars view. The issues arise when numerous of hadith are found not supported by references, resources and status. This study allows us to make an assessment from the point of acceptance to the hadiths which are carried by a person whether authenticated (sahih), weak (da’if), or fabricated (mawdu’) and from its sources and references. This study focuses on the study of hadith literature which will be analyzed individually to determine its validity. This science is the cornerstones in the field of hadith as a science that very important for us to know the status of a hadith. By using descriptive analysis methodology this study aims and expected as contribution to the Muslim community because the people often use hadith without explaining the status. The study found that most of the Hadiths that have been documented are not specified in term of source and status. The existence of this science could help the public to understand how the precision of hadith scholars in maintaining the authority of hadith as the second foundational source after the Qur’an should be guarded.
