Abstract: This study aimed to provide an analysis of hadith Wujuh Sawh in terms of chain of transmitters and content. This hadith has been quoted in Shiite hadith sources including Al-Kafi, Man la yahdur Al-Faqih, Tahzib, Istibsar, etc. However, irrespective of other transmitters of this hadith, Shiite rijal scholars are divided on the first transmitter of this hadith that is Ibn Shihab Zuhri to the extent that some commentators of Kutub arbaah (the four books) have considered this hadith as an inauthentic hadith due to presence of Ibn Shihab Zuhri among its transmitters. However, different parts of this hadith have been invoked by many faqihs. For these reasons, researcher provided a content analysis of the said hadith after having critically analyzed the views of rijal scholars about Ibn Shihab and provide many pieces of evidence from the Quran and hadiths in support of the content of the said hadith.
