Following a presentation of definitions for hadith, its synonymous and cognate terms, its lexical and terminological senses, and regarding hadith as reporting the words, deeds, and tacit approvals of the infallible, the author proceeds to discuss the term khabar (“narration, report”), its lexical and terminological senses, its semantic relation to hadith as well as the meaning of athar (“deeds, precedents”) and sunna (“tradition, custom, model practice”).
