ilm ul rijal (Knowledge of men)
« on: July 05, 2016, 03:24:30 AM »
Peace to all


There is much criticism regarding the authenticity of the Hadith books. As we all know, Hadiths, most of them if not all, are shaped the biography of Muhammad. The authenticity of these Hadiths are based on ilm ul rijal, which is basically the biography of the narrators. The authenticity of the Hadiths are connected to the authenticity of the biography of the narrators. If the biography of the narrators are authentic, then there is a less chance of fabrication in Hadith books. Having that in mind, I would like to ask the following questions:

  • Who wrote or narrated the biography of the narrators?
  • Are they (Those who wrote or narrated the biography of the narrators) reliable?
