The imams (experts in Ahadith) and (critical) scholars of hadith sciences made great efforts in preserving the hadith. They collected the texts and chains (asnaad) and explained the conditions of the narrators in detail. They recorded for posterity not only the exact wording of the hadith but also took pains to elaborate on the differences of the narrators in the chains. They revealed the difference between narrators in the “Isnads” and the wording of the hadith. They collected the hadiths that were reasoned “Ahadees e Ma’alola” in private books and distinguished the correct from the defective, but they did not state the reasons for the Caused “Illat”. Most of the time, they did not show the presumptions of Weighting clues. Some of them accepted it (Siqa) sometimes for/as evidence, and returned/rejected on other occasions. This is the approach of the advanced scholars in the field; they neither accept nor reject it fully. However, a theoretical account of clues by which a scholar of hadith is to accept or reject the increase is not explicitly mentioned by forerunners in the tradition of hadith scholarship. Rather, these clues are implicit in their rulings on the hadiths and can be explained in detail by exploring the conditions o the narrators. Among these critics and imams of illal, Sheikh Al-Dari Qutni is well-known for his experience and understanding of the science (of illal). The researchers aim to highlight the reasons behind the acceptance or rejection, total or partial, of the increase. For this, the methodology of these rulings on the hadiths with increase confidence is analyzed in detail. This, in turn, will highlight the clues by which Al-Dari Qutni accepts siqa or rejects it.
