This research delves into the chronological categorization of prophetic (Peace Be Upon Him) traditions within Hadith sciences, specifically analyzing the distinct narratives from the Meccan and Medinan periods of Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace Be Upon Him) life. It emphasizes the critical role these periods play in the theological and jurisprudential evolution of Islam, highlighting how each phase uniquely contributes to the corpus of Islamic law and doctrine. Through a detailed examination of both Meccan and Medinan Hadiths, the study explores the contextual significance and the specific teachings associated with each era. This approach not only aids in a deeper understanding of the Islamic legal and ethical frameworks but also underscores the adaptability and relevance of these teachings in contemporary Islamic thought. The research utilizes a blend of textual analysis and historical context to articulate the development of Islamic teachings, showing how the Prophet's messages were influenced by and responded to different socio-political environments. By focusing on the chronological division and the specific characteristics of the Hadith from each period, the paper provides insights into the continuity and dynamism inherent in Islamic jurisprudence, advocating for a nuanced interpretation of sacred texts that is rooted in both historical awareness and contemporary applicability.
