Abstract

As Sindh is called Bab-ul-Islam because the arrival of Islam in Sindh took place in the first century after Hijrah. That is why there was an opportunity for Islamic sciences to grow here. Just as the period from the first century to the fourth century AH is also the period of compilation and collection of hadith. Therefore, the Muhaddithin of Sindh also took an active part in the compilation of hadith. And in the first centuries, some cities of Sindh became the precedent of Baghdad and Basra. Of course, it is surprising that a region far from the Hejaz became famous in the science of Hadith۔ Therefore; this research article has been examined in details as to what were the factors that Sindh became the center of Hadith knowledge in the early centuries.
