An Evaluation of the AÍÉdÊth on the Imamate Creed within Shi‟ism by Using the Criticism Methods of the UÎËliyyÊn

Mohd Azri Mohd Nasaruddin
Abstract—The two largest Muslim sect of the world, the Sunni and the Shi’ite have a totally different view and discipline on handling the Islamic Law. However, the most distinctive factor that differentiates these two giant sects is the creed of Imamate. This creed is extracted by the Shi’ite from various sources of Islamic law. This article is focusing on evaluating those aÍÉdīth by using the method outlined by the Shi’ite themselves. Results suggested that these aÍÉdīth cannot be used as a solid material in determining a creed in a given school of thought.

Index Terms—Creed, imamate, Shi’ism, UÎËliyyÊn.
