The study and investigation of the credibility of reliable tradition due its many instances in the sources of Shiite hadith has a remarkable importance. In a general view the Shiite scholars can be divided into two groups. First, a group that admits the credibility of reliable hadith, which is divided further into those who give absolute credit to reliable tradition and those who acknowledge only those reliable traditions which are treated as widely known and acknowledged. The second group acts differently from the first group, that is, because they cannot be certain that the non-Shiite narrators can meet the requirements of belief and justice they cannot give credit to reliable hadith.
In this article besides referring to different views and the attitudes of their followers, the reasons of those who give no credit to reliable tradition have been discussed and at the end it is mentioned that religious difference cannot be an absolute reason for rejecting the credibility of reliable tradition.
