Demonstrating the principal function of third/ninth century hadîth students within the articulation of Sunnî Islam, this e-book bases its findings mostly upon the research of a number of biographical dictionaries, resembling al-Dhahabî’s Tadhkirat al-huffâz, Ibn Sa'd’s Kitâb al-tabaqât al-kabîr, and collections of the severe reviews of Ibn Maʿîn and Ibn Hanbal.

Part I establishes conceptual and old frameworks for the examine of Sunnî hadîth scholarship.

Part II examines intimately the 3 foundational ideas of Sunnî Islam: 1) the collective probity of the sahâba, 2) the self-discipline of hadîth-transmitter feedback, and three) a historic imaginative and prescient of the authoritative channels during which hadîth traversed the 2 centuries among the lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad and the 1st significant hadîth books.
