Abstract | Full Text

This article analyzes the method of criticizing the ḥadīth offered by Muḥammad al-Ghazālī from Sunnī school and Abū Ja‘far Muḥammad b. Ya‘qūb al-Kulaynī from Shi‘ite school. The focus of the problem in this study is the difference in the qualifications of hadiths between Sunnī and Shi‘ite schools which are the two largest Islamic schools which always have a theological and political contradiction between the two. From these two figures, it can be concluded that there is an equal method of criticism, which is located in the narrator must be ḍābit and thiqqah. Besides that there are also differences between al-Ghazālī that does not require the connection of narrators and emphasizes more on critical criticism. Whereas al-Kulaynī requires his sanad to be continued, where he equalizes the infallible priest with the Prophet. The criterion is more to the criticism of sanad. The same criteria in the criticism method can facilitate tracking of authentic ḥadīth. Likewise with the different methods of criticism, many traditions are considered valid by the Sunnis but da‘īf according to the Shi‘a and vice versa.
