‘Abd al-Razzaq ibn Hammam ibn Nafi’ al-San'ani (126 AH – 211 AH) was a Persian[2] Sunni Islamic scholar of the Science of hadith.

Biography[edit]

He lived in San‘a, the capital of Yemen. His pursuit of studies also included travels to Mecca, Medina, Syria and Iraq, where he studied under many scholars in all these cities.[citation needed]

Scholasticism[edit]

Imam Bukhari says: “When Abd Al-Razzaq reports hadiths reading from what he had written, then what he reports is more authentic.”[citation needed] This means that Al-Bukhari would accept hadiths reported by Abd Al-Razzaq as authentic when he is aware that he was reading from his book. If he was reporting from memory, then Al-Bukhari would want some corroboration to classify the reported hadith as authentic. Imam Ahmad says: “We visited Abd Al-Razzaq before the year 200, when he still enjoyed a good eyesight.[citation needed]
