Earlier scholars have proposed that hadith collectors and specialists in the pious life were largely the same persons in the earlier eighth century, then gradually drifted apart into the tenth century. Here, Jeremy Farrell applies network theory to the biographies of five Sufis who were also notable hadith collectors: Ibn Masrūq, Ibn al-Aʿrābī, Jaʿfar al-Khuldī, Ibn Nujayd, and al-Rūdhbārī. Even in the tenth century, some Sufis were highly active in hadith transmission.
