Abstract

Shihab is a Muslim scholar from the Indonesian Archipelago, who has produced a comprehensive exegesis entitled Al-Mishbah. He had stressed on understanding the Qur'anic verses according to the context and not focusing on the text alone. Hence, this study aims to critically analyze on hisHadith thought. To get a clearer view, this study has adopted the literature analysis method with al-Mishbah as a source inclusive of various Tafsir and Hadithbooks as major references.This study found that he emphasized the importance in interpreting the Qur'an with authentic Hadith. However, there are instances to strengthen his interpretation byrejecting the authentic Hadithand refers to the weak Hadith. Additionally, sometimes he rejectedthe Hadith just because his tendency is towards the metaphorical than the real meaning of the verses. Furthermore, there is a Hadith which stated just mentioning translation only, causing inconvenience to the public to know its authenticity.
