Activity 10.1: Rejecting HadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th as a Source of Islam
The Sunni scholars believe in two sacred sources of Islam: the Qur’Ãƒâ€žÃ‚Ân and hadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th. Similarly, the ShiÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“ah scholars based their doctrine on the Qur’Ãƒâ€žÃ‚Ân and hadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th whose knowledge was descended from a specific path, the Imams and specific group of Companions. Following the forgery of hadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th, a certain viewpoint posed the Qur’Ãƒâ€žÃ‚Ân as the sole source of Islam; that contrasts the idea that the Muslims must hold on to both the Qur’Ãƒâ€žÃ‚Ân and hadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th. Discuss the bases of this idea by consulting Kassim Ahmad, HadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th: A Re-Evaluation, Chapter V:
Activity 10.2: Debate about a Supposed Forged Tradition
Some Orientalists believed that Ibn ShihÃƒâ€žÃ‚Âb al-ZuhrÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â« had falsified the famous tradition about the pilgrimage to the three mosques of Mecca, Madina, and Jerusalem. Discuss this hypothesis and revaluate it; then provide an evidence to support the opposite hypothesis. Consult Motzki, Hadith, pp. 16-24.
Activity 10.3: Fabricated Traditions
The fabricated traditions can be identified in several ways. Present an argument why the following traditions were considered to be fabricated. Consult Kamali, A Textbook of Hadith Studies, pp. 76-79.
"The ark of Noah circumambulated the KaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“bah seven times and then prayed two units (rakÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“ah) of salÃƒâ€žÃ‚Âh at the end."
"The offspring of zinÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â shall not enter Paradise down to seven generations."
"The lifespan of the world is 7,000 years."
"When someone conveys to you my hadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th which is in conformity with the truth, follow it even if I have actually not said it."
SaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“d b. MuÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“Ãƒâ€žÃ‚Âdh and MuÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“Ãƒâ€žÃ‚Âwiyah related that "the Prophet imposed the jizyah (poll tax) on the Jews of Khaybar and relieved them of hardship (prospects of war)."
Activity 10.4: Moral Character of the Companions
The moral character of the Companions (ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“adÃƒâ€žÃ‚Âlat al-sahÃƒâ€žÃ‚Âbah) is a controversial theme among Sunnah and ShiÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“ah scholars. Form a discussion which includes both views and evaluate their different arguments. Consult Brown’s Rethinking Tradition in Modern Islamic Thought, pp. 85-87, Juynboll. Muslim Tradition, pp. 190-196, Sahih al-BukhÃƒâ€žÃ‚ÂrÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«, to make the heart tender (al-riqÃƒâ€žÃ‚Âq), traditions 584, 585, 586, 592:
Activity 10.5: HadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th Abrogation and HadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th Forgery
The occurrence of abrogation in the hadÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«th has been established on different bases. Consult al-KulaynÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“UsÃƒâ€¦Ã‚Â«l al-KÃƒâ€žÃ‚ÂfÃƒâ€žÃ‚Â«, Chapter 21:
