About the Book:
The authenticity of the tradition has always been a matter of great controversies among Muslim scholars. In this book, the author, with regard to the Holy Quran, proposes a theory called “Framework and Level Theory” which divides the tradition into three types: consisting, opposing and neutral.
In another chapter of the book, the authentic of the Ahl al-Bayt Tradition. Taking the Sunnis recourses into consideration, the book proves that the belief in the authenticity of the Shiite Tradition originated in the Prophet Muhammad’s tradition. However it faces such challenges as inconsistency with the principle that Prophet Muhammad is the last divine prophet, the fact that the infallible Imams have not been mentioned by name in the holy Quran, and some inconsistencies within Imamate Doctrine, some of which are answered in this book. In chapter 3 the important issues of the validation of the tradition is disused according to the most important figures and books. Then the hadith-related drawbacks is studied and the author offers “Framework and Level Theory” according to which the authentic hadith are regarded as a valid source for inferring and enforcing Islamic laws proven by Sharia sources, authentic tradition and the reason. In this theory the assessment of the level of authenticity of the Hadiths play a key role. This book is highly recommended for those who resort to the Hadiths in religious theory building.
