This article discusses the characteristics by which hadith may serve as the basis employed by jurisprudents and traditionalists. Following a definition of hadith, sunna, the hadith transmitted by several transmitters (khabar mutawatir), and the hadith with a single transmitter (khabar wahid), the author proceeds to discuss Shi´a hadith transmitters and their employment of the hadiths transmitted bySunni transmitters. Finally, he concludes that the standard for acting upon hadith is not the transmitters’ belief in Shi´a or the Sunni schools, but their veracity.
