The eminence of classic Muslim scholars in preserving the hadith as prophetic tradition seems significant primarily as reflected in the many books of hadith. The erudite endeavour of hadith preservation was worthy of Muslim recognition in terms of the intellectual contribution of this
utmost resource of the Islamic creed. Unfortunately, this solemn work has been disputed by a group that has alleged that some or all hadith were wholly created. Anti-hadith groups remain sceptical of Islamic scholars’ work. With a rational and logic-based premise, these groups have cultivated
mistrust concerning the transmission methods and traditional writings which act as the survival anchored authenticity of hadith. Ironically, some Western scholars have positive attitudes regarding the hadith authenticity due to thorough examination of hadith books. To this extent of impartial
enlightenment, Western scholars favour the justification of hadith within rationality and logic, which is crucial to adducing and replying against the shallow allegations of the anti-hadith camp, as their central thinking unambiguously comes from Western scholarly research. Applying content
analysis to Western scholars’ work, this article concentrates on the rationality and logic of acceptance among Western scholars concerning the hadith justification. Although there is some view of Western scholars within the hadith criticizing, they contribution on hadith literature undeniable.
