Chapter Summary

This section of the book Encyclopedia of Canonical Ḥadīth presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the discussion on the major traditions of the canonical ḥadīths. Every ḥadīth within the corpus of every transmitter/originator is followed by a list of loci where it can be traced in the collections. An analysis of the chains of transmitters (isnāds) of each is added as well in an attempt to justify the identification of that originator.

Keywords: canonical ḥadīths; isnāds
