The Narrator of the Book Sulaim Ibn Qays

Abdulmahdi Jalali

Aban Ibn Abi Ayyash is the only narrator of the Book Sulaim bn Qays. Every book can be investigated from two points: extrinsically and exoterically. Exoteric criticism regards the work primarily in relation to the author himself. It often looks in the work for evidences of the particular temperament and experiences of the author who, consciously or unconsciously, has revealed himself in it. To verify the reliability of the book, the author gives a biography of Aban Ibn Abi Ayyash. He also investigates Abi Ayyash’s views and thoughts as well as his personality.
