AN APPROACH TOWARD THE BINDING AUTHORITY OF SUNNAH WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO FIQH AL-HADITH OF AL-BUKHARI

Osman GÜNER [1]


The issue of understanding religious texts and instructions of God and His prophet after the revelation of Islam has been subject to a deep effort and occupation. The question which speeches and deeds of Prophet are to be taken a model (paradigm) and which model is to be taken a binding authority have been discussed throughout the history of Islam. This paper presents the developments and the course of understanding sunnah until the third century after hicra, which is considered to be the golden age of hadith. Then, it deals with 1) al-Bukhari’s approach toward the issue of binding authority of sunnah and hadith; 2) His method of understanding by taking his canonical perspective of al-hadith (fıkh al-hadith) as reflected in the headlines of different sections in his work called al-Sahih into consideration as concrete samples of his thought. The main purpose of this paper is to determine the level of understanding of al-muhaddisun, who are accepted as the conservative trend in Islamic tradition, with respect to hadith and sunnah within the paradigm of binding authority of sunnah.
