Methodology of studying the traditions in the field of history of Islam and monotheistic religions in the light of interpretive method of al-Mīzān

Ebrahim Nakha'ee1

S. Muhammad Ali Ayazi2

Considering the vastness of interpretive traditions in the field of history and taking Allamah Tabatabaei's approach to this group of traditions into account we decided to investigate the Allamah's method in studying historical traditions. (In his al-Mīzān) the Allamah scrutinizes and evaluates the traditions and particularly the historical ones, with specific criteria and methods preceding with interpreting the Qur’anic verses with other verses of the same book. This article aims putting these methods in order so that the researchers may be able in its light to criticize the traditions in a scholarly way. The fruit of this writing is elucidating the Allamah's ability in criticizing and investigating the traditions and opening a new horizon to approach sound traditions. Having these criteria in facing Islamic traditions in the field of history, one can provide the methodology of confronting this kind of traditions in a codified way. The difference between this article and other pieces of writing in the field of analyzing the interpretive traditions is putting the criticism and analysis criteria in order and showing them diagrammatically.

Keywords: Allamah Tabatabaei, investigation of traditions, historical traditions, interpretive traditions.
