Abstract

A number of modern Western writers have discussed in more or less detail the origins of hadith. One of them is G.H.A. Juynboll, who claims that he adopts a new approach and comes up with new conclusions regarding the subject. His main theory is that the prophetic hadiths which are to be found in later hadith collections are, mainly, a development of the products of the early authorities. The beginning of the transmission of hadith, according to him, came into existence as late as toward the end of the first century.
