The contemporary debate over the Ḥadīth of the prophet Muḥammad is taking a new and serious direction. After being a simple scholastic debate between those who questioned the authenticity and the authority of Ḥadīth and its status and the Ḥadīth supporters (classical Muslims or Traditional ones), it has moved towards rejecting Ḥadīth and considering it absolutely fabricated and faked stories. This thesis is a critical study of this debate seeking to identify the core issues involved and analytically discussing them. The first chapter deals with the background, objectives and significance of the research, literature review, research methodology and structure of the research. The second chapter demonstrates some writings of anti-Ḥadīth figures particularly in the Muslim scholarship. The third, fourth and fifth chapters respond to the main points of the anti-Ḥadīth views and refute them by discussing three main subjects: the humanity of the prophet, his role and the different forms of divine revelation. The sixth and final chapter includes concluding remarks and suggestions as to how to deal with such a serious debatable issue.
