عنوان مقاله [English]
Although Mirdamad is mainly known for his philosophical writing, he has many other works on narrational sciences, which are important to discuss and study. While writing his book Glosses on Al- Usul Al- Kafi, which considering the title of the book and its introduction seems to be written to explain the traditions collected by al-Kafi in his magnum opus of hadith, he understood that an investigation of the documents of the traditions should come prior to the study of the traditions themselves. Therefore, he decided to express his views on the technical terms of hadith and important issues related to the transmitters of hadith in a collection titled Al- Rawasheh Al- Samawiyyah in which he sometimes offers views that are opposite or at least different from those of earlier scholars. Having explained and analyzed the views of Mirdamad, this article by comparing his views with those of other earlier Shii scholars of traditions has come with significant conclusions, such as documenting Ibrahim Ibn Hashim al-Qomi and endorsing what he has transmitted, explaining with precision the firm term, which from the viewpoint of earlier scholars had a wide meaning but Mirdamad has narrowed it down, obliterating the difference between well-documented and well-known tradition, introducing the term inferring, and a different explanation of the difficult hadith. Moreover, new classification and verbal precisions are some other innovations of Mirdamad in the subject of Understanding hadith.
