|dc.description.abstract||Ahstract: The Pattern Of Narration in The Second Century (ll): Al-Rabi'
b. Habib and his al-Jami' from the points of al-Riwayah and al-Dirayalı:
AI-Rabi' b. Habib's book al-Jami' is one of the earliest traditional sources
which has come to our time. it was collected in the second half of the second
century as a Musned -so iLis called Rabi's Musned as well- and reclassified
in the sixth century by al-Wardjlani (570/1 174) an Ibadi scholar, in term of
headlines in its present published form. The book has two parls and 742
hadiths under 120 headlines. al-Wardjlani added the third part to the book
which contains 142 hadiths regarding Ibadi doctrine and the fourth part
which involves ı21 hadiths coming from Rabi' and Aflah and Djabir b.
Zayd. As for value of Rabi's book, in contrast to the Classic Sunni tradition
which has paid no attention to it, it is accepıed by Ibadiyya sect as the most
significant book after the Holy Qur'an. Finally Rabi's al-Jami' sheds light on
the early history of Hadith literature and provides rather important
information about the Ibadi tradition. In any case, the book is not to be
neglected by the researchers.
The book presellts mail)' typical maııners for the early period of the
Hadith literature. Like Ma 'mar b. al-Rashed, Rabi' follows the same stylesfor the narrations i.e., 'an 'ana and balağ generally and akhbarana or
haddathana farely. But Rabi's book doesn't include so many weak hadiths
with broken isnads or unknown narraters or certain hesitations in the
narrations. In my view, this either might be due to Rabi's translating of the
narrations from Abu Ubayda 's collection or because of the carreetion of
same weaknesses in the narrations made later. With regard to al-Dirayah
like most of the mulıaddiths, Rabi' prefers the narratiOlı of the hadiths only.
However, in the cas e of needing an interpration of a hadith, he would either
explain himself it or refers it to his teachers.||tr_TR
