Advocating the Multiplicity of Events to Resolve Narrative Conflicts an Applied Study in the Narrations of Sahih al-Bukhari
Keywords:Contradiction, Multiplicity of Events, Narrations, Applied Study, Sahih al-Bukhari
This study addressed the concept of advocating the multiplicity of events to resolve narrative conflicts, which is one of the reasons behind the presence of multiple narrations in the Prophetic Hadith. The issue was examined through practical examples found in Sahih al-Bukhari. The objective of this study was to elucidate the reality of claims of contradiction in Hadith literature, particularly in Sahih al-Bukhari, and to refute these doubts. The study began with necessary definitions as an introduction to the topic, followed by explaining the criteria for advocating the multiplicity of events and the relationship between the multiplicity of narrations and the multiplicity of events. Practical examples from Sahih al-Bukhari were extracted to illustrate how the scholars of Hadith addressed this issue. The study reached conclusions, including the fact that the presence of apparently contradictory narrations in Hadith literature, especially in Sahih al-Bukhari, is an undisputed phenomenon. However, our scholars conducted research and investigation to resolve these issues, identifying their causes and methods of addressing them. One method to resolve these conflicts is advocating the multiplicity of events based on established criteria among Hadith scholars. The study also concluded that the occurrence of this type of contradiction in Sahih al-Bukhari is very limited, and exaggeration should be avoided without proper justification. Our scholars have provided precise scholarly directions supported by evidence and indications that reveal there is no genuine contradiction in authentic narrations in terms of their chains of transmission.
