Main Article Content
This article aims to discuss the heretic (bid‘ah) issues related to ḥadîth naration. It actually has been a topic of discussion among muslim scholars (ulama). Some of them refuse the reliability of those ḥadîth narrated by the heretics, but some others maintain to receive their narration. This topic has become a polemical disputatation for the heretics are usually labelled negatively as “ahl al-ahwâ’ wa al-bida‘”, which in turns, brings them into a low level of personal degree. Interestingly, some of the heretics narrators are quoted and narrated by the major ḥadîth scholars like al-Bukhârî and Muslim. This article argues that ḥadîth scholars have revealed a neutral and objective position in appraising the narration of ḥadîth from those accused as heretics.
