Abstract

In the sciences of Hadith, “Ilm Asma-ul-Rijal” is not less than the rampart for a fort. There are different ways of identifying the narrators of Hadith (Muhadditheen) through this Ilm Asma-ul-Rijal, which include their names, surnames, titles, lineage, attributes, authorship, status and shortcomings.

In the topic under discussion, the possible aspects of the title “Al-Lahabi” mentioned in the Isnaad of the hadith have been studied. In this regard, an attempt has been made to know from the titles of the narrators, in the chain of narrators, and their relation with Al-Lahabi lineage whether they belong to the same family of Abu Lahab whose ancestor Abu Lahab’s enmity towards Islam was manifest and whether this family rendered its services to Islam? And among those who have been blessed with this service, only the authentic narrators have been mentioned with reference to the service of Hadith.

The main purpose of this research is to determine the place and position of the descendants of Abu Lahab in the Ilm-e-Hadith by mentioning their knowledge and services. These gentlemen are not mentioned in the sources due to their services not being compiled and described. o, they could not get the pride of place which they deserved like the members of any other tribe. Therefore, in this paper, their introduction and their traditions are described so that their narrations can be assessed in the light of the valid rules and regulations of the narration of Hadith instead of prejudice and blind replication.

I hope this study will subsequently open the doors for researchers on many aspects such as the social, religious, and political services of this family.
