ABSTRACT
The first and important examples of biography were written by Muslim scholars. The information concerning the person whose biography was written was provided in narrations (riwayeh) with supported chain (isnad) in the works of the early era. The most important feature of narrations with supported chain is that it is mostly possible to verify the information concerning the narrator (rawi) mentioned in the supported chains using other sources and authors. Thus, it is possible to reevaluate the supported chains of these narrations in each period. Indeed, the information in the texts can be subject to critique by comparing with the narrations transferred through different paths (tariq) and with other sources. In this study, the critique by Zahid al-Kawsary of the narrations in the biography of Imam Azam Abu Hanife written by Hatib al-Baghdadi, one of the last biography writers who provided narrations with supported chains, is examined in terms of the methods employed in modern historical studies.
