What is "Gharib" and "Jayyid" in Hadith terminology?
« on: April 28, 2015, 10:12:47 PM »
Quote from: Karim_sunni
Salaam brothers and sisters,
what does the hadith classification "gharib, jayyid" [ both terms are used together for one hadith ] means ?

Quote from: Mufti Husain

Jayyid is generally used for a hadith that is strong, but not sahih, more or less similar to hasan.

As for gharib, it is used for a number of meanings:
1- Narrated with only one chain
2- A certain narrator only narrates it from a certain teacher
3- Meaning is strange
in addition to  few other meanings.

It is perfectly possible for a hadith to be jayyid as well as gharib, just as it can be sahih or hasan as well as gharib at the same time.

When gharib is used in the first meaning, i.e. narrated with only one chain, is it synonymous with khabar wahid?
