[10]Compilers of Hadiths made a number of checks to confirm the reliability of the narrator andthe authenticity of the Hadith they related. Some of the checks they made are listed below andcould well be given by candidates in their answer. If other valid checks are given which are notlisted in the MS they should be credited as well.The narrator must be a person Muslim of faith. The chain of narrators must be complete andcontinuous. The narrator must be known for his truthfulness and honesty.He should be at anage where he understands the significance of what he hears and realises that the slightest changemay change the meaning of the Hadith. He should report exactly as he heard the Hadith. The textshould not be contrary to what the Qur’an has to say. It should not be against common sense orother verified Hadiths.It should not praise an individual, tribe or place etc.Development of the points given above and other valid points which are made will add substanceto the answer.b)In your opinion what are the main advantages of carrying out checks to confirm thereliability of the Hadiths? [4]Here candidates need to give an evaluative response in which they need to express theirviews as to what the advantages of making checks to confirm the authenticity of Hadiths are.They could say that: Sahih Hadiths provide an accurate model for Muslims to follow.

All valid responses tobe credited.[MAY/JUNE 2019/V 2]a)Write an account of the compilation of Hadiths during the period of the Successors of theSuccessors (tabi’ altabi’in). [10]This period is considered as the Golden Age of Hadith compilation and many hundreds ofthousands of Hadiths were compiled by the Successors of the Successors. During this period,Hadith scholars established rules of Matn and Sanad to sift through the Hadiths to categorisethem and include them in their collections.A large number of jurists combined the two categories of musnad and musannaf in the formof sunan / sahih books. A sunan was organised topic-wise and thus could be easily used as legalreference, and it focussed on Ahadith-e-Nabavi with full isnads. Foremost amongst the jurists atthis time were Bukhari and Muslim. They broke away from the tradition of using weak Hadiths inlaw and their collections were devoted only to Hadiths whose isnads met with the requirementsof authenticity.
