This is a brief history of the beginning of the Orientalist studies of hadith, which will shed light on the most prominent works and views Western scholars on hadith, the nature as well as the impact of their outcomes on Muslims and Western worlds. The beginning era of such studies was between 1890 to 1950. In this period, two influential and founding works of Ignatz Goldziher and Josef Schacht emerged, and both have immensely contributed in shaping the Western perspective regarding hadith, the Prophetic Biography and early history of Islam.
