Question 6

Outline the three categories of Hadith according to their degrees of reliability.


This question was one of the most attempted questions by candidates. As simple as the question was, its technicality lied in the requirement to arrange the three categories in a specific order i.e. according to their degrees of reliability. Most of the candidates did not take note of the need to arrange in the required order - Sahih (sound), Hasan (good) and Da'if (weak). This was a major factor which militated against candidates’ excellent performance on the question, though correct explanatory points under each category were rewarded.
