The Urgency of Jarh Wa Ta'dil's Science in Determining the Quality of Hadith
The purpose of this paper is to explain the importance ofjarh wa ta'dil. The source of this article is taken from ulumul hadith books. Jarh wa ta'dil is a science which discusses in it good and bad judgments of rawi of hadith. There are several things to consider in the jarh wa ta'dil. That is, the critics: people who are in the jarh or ta'dil, the word jarh or ta'dil, the decision if there is a conflict of critics opinion against a rawi, and jarh wa ta'dil unexplained or explained. A critic must have the condition: knowledge, conscience, truth, honesty, stay away from the fanatic nature, and understand the cause of a person's mischief of being a fair man. The word ta'dil and jarh are varied and each word has the power. The difference of critics affects the difference of word, and this should be noted.
