AUTHENTICATION OF HADITH
The Muhaddithun paid careful attention to the collection of the Hadiths in the second century of Hijrah. The justification for this was that some hypocrites and non-Muslims tried to make hadiths.
Imam Bukhari and other scholars have taken this seriously and introduced other concepts to ensure that the Hadith is authentic. The first part is the sand and the second the surface.
A hadith is divided into two parts. For example. “Obaidullah tells us it is said that he met Hanzalah who came from Ikramah to learn about Ibn-e-Umar who tells us the kind of a prophet (PBUH):
“Islam was made up of five pillars and testified that Allah is One. Muhammad is His messenger, daily prayer, daily charitable work, fasting in Ramadan month, and annual pilgrimage”.
The first part of the transmitter’s chain is the Isnad and the second part of the body of the text is the Man. Both sides of the hadith were thoroughly examined by the Muhaddithun.
The narrator’s chain was analyzed and tracked attentively for Isnad. Their biographies were compiled and studied in depth through the art of Asma-Ur-Rijal (Men’s names).
Each transmitter must have strong confidence, a sound intellect, an outstanding memory, and an upright heart. So much so, the Hadith was refused if the transmitter had ever cheated or even lied to someone in a joke.
The compilers have ensured that the transmitter remained present when it was broadcast from the moment when it was received or processed Hadith.
In this connection, Muhaddithun compared the location and birth of the transmitter, the places, and the people he met. The first transmitter had also to be the companion of the Holy Prophet (SAW).
Finally, the transmission chain needed to be full the compilers have ensured that the transmitter remained present when it was broadcast from the moment when it was received or processed Hadith.

COMPILATION OF AHADIS DURING THE LIFE OF HOLY PROPHET (PBUH)
Prophet himself would give instructions about the transmission of what he taught,
“Pray what you’re doing to me. Let those who see and hear me also take care to spread my words and preach to their children, relatives, and friends”
There is another report according to which on the Farewell Pilgrimage, the Prophet said,
“He who is present here should carry this message to him who is absent.”
They found it their responsibility to teach the Ahadis to those who had not seen and heard him. A group of students called Ashab-e-suffah, who reside in the mosque, were entrusted to the tribal groups outside Madinah with religious instruction.
Abu Hurairah who remained at the Prophet Company at all times and kept all the Prophet said or did become one of the most revered groups in the world.
The actions of Abu Hurairah were directed at the preservation of Ahmadis from the beginning.
Abu Hurairah told the prophet once that he did not recall what he had learned from him. It’s connected to him.
“Take the help from your right hand” (Tirmizi)
i.e., write it down. Abdullah bin Umar (R) began to write down whatever he heard from the Holy Prophet (PBUH). His collections contained around 10,000 Ahmadis.
Abdullah bin Umar himself said: “I used to write everything that I heard from the Prophet (PBUH) intending to commit it to memory”. I spoke about it to the prophet (PBUH) who said:

“Write down, for I only speak the truth” (Abu Daud)
Another Abu Hurairah report: ‘Abdullah bin Amr is an exception to the one he had written, and I have not.’ No other fellows kept more customs than I have.
The directions given by Holy Prophet Hazrat Ali (PBUH) used to write down the Command Ahadis. Hazrat Aisha had also been interested in the survival or propagation of ahadis, as the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, Abdullah bin Umar and Abdullah bin Abbas. Abdullah bin Umar’s collection was called Sadiqa.
The collection cycle has begun in the Holy Prophet’s Life (PBUH).
