Abstract

Mushkil al-Ḥadīth is an important subject in ḥadīth scholarship for its contribution to the understanding of complicated ḥadīth texts. Muslim scholars have exerted their utmost efforts to solve apparent conflicts and problems in ḥadīth texts that pertain to Islamic theological or legal principles. In the theological discourse, one of the problems often debated is the interpretation of scriptures that contain attributes of God which are deemed anthropomorphic. This is also known as the problem of al-ṣifāt al-khabariyyah (Divine attributes which were derived solely from khabar i.e., Qurʾan and ḥadīth as opposed to those derived from logical reasoning) or khabarī attributes. Amongst the scholars who have treated this subject is al-Imām al-Bayḥaqī whose work on theology was based on the approach of ḥadīth scholars. This paper intends to delineate the method applied by al-Bayḥaqī in addressing the problem of khabarī attributes. This study adopts the method of text analysis by focusing on al-Bayḥaqī’s work titled al-Asmāʾ wa’l-Ṣifāt. The study has found that al-Bayḥaqī adopted the methods of taʾwīl and tafwīḍ in dealing with khabarī attributes.
