How do we reason which hadeeth is authentic and which hadeeth is not?
Some scholars classify a hadith has hasan while others say it gharib – how do we distinguish this?
The factors that are to be to be taken into consideration to classify a hadith as hasan or sahih are known. If there are differences of opinion in authenticity of hadeeth, some differences are considerable, because there are reasons etc. and some may not be. However, some people declare a hadith as inauthentic simply because it does not fit with their logic which is not right.
So for you are unable to determine if a hadith is sahih or da’eef, then Allah has said, ‘Ask those who know if you don’t know,’ which is what we must do.< Back to Questions
