Ali Aghaei addresses the controversy over whether the medieval technical term madār (‘pivot’), meaning someone to whom lines of transmission for a particular hadith report continually converged, effectively anticipated Joseph Schacht’s term ‘common link’. After examining the usage of madār and related terms such as gharīb and tafarrud, Aghaei tends to vindicate G. H. A. Juynboll’s assertion that madār and ‘common link’ were equivalent, against Halit Özkan.

Keywords:   hadith, madār, common link, Schacht, Juynboll, gharīb, tafarrud, Özkan
