Mah}mûd Abû Rayyah comes to the study of h}adîth as a controversial scholar. His criticism has made a significant change in modern period in which his critics are directed towards some literatures and early h}adîth scholars (râwî). One of the making polemic in his study is his critical study on the authenticity of h}adîth in Bukhârî’s book, S}ahîh} Bukhârî. It is not only Bukhârî whom his critics are pointed out, but also Abû Hurayrah, a person who has narrated so many h}adîth and become the most cited name in h}adîth literatures. This paper would shed light on the epistemological view of Abû Rayyah in h}adîth criticism. It highlights three branches of h}adîth studies: authenticity, reliability and historical analysis. This study suggests that Abû Rayyah put al-sunnah al-hudâ (a living tradition of Muh}ammad which is related to ‘aqîdah and sharî‘ah) as a main tool for validity to determine the authenticity of h}adîth. In this case, every h}adîth which contradicts to this value should be rejected. Further he said that h}adîth codification did not take place in the period prior to al-Zuhrî. The political pressure is one of the reasons why al-Zuhrî and other Muslims are militant to write and collect Muh}ammad traditions of h}adîth.
