(1) Ahle-Hadith are the people most familiar with Hadith, the most strict in adherence to it, those who follow it in words and deeds in their Akhlaq (manners), their Suluk (conduct), their Ibadah (worship), their Muamalat (dealings), and in their Itiqad (beliefs) both openly and in private. Those who are focused on the study, compilation, writing, and teaching of Hadith, transmitting them, understanding them, and sorting the authentic from the weak are more worthy of being included in this group.
