The Turkish Republic has recently become another major centre of hadith scholarship. Fatma Kızıl identifies two pioneers as Mehmed Said Hatiboğlu, relatively friendly toward Ignaz Goldziher’s scholarship, and Talât Koçyiğit, hostile. As in the Arab world, students of hadith have been involved in political controversy, both internally (different evaluations of Westernisation and secularism, also very much the continued relevance of medieval jurisprudence) and externally (defence against European scepticism). Islamic modernists have piled up examples of dubious hadith reports but so far failed to come up with an alternative basis for Islamic law such as their criticisms seem to imply.
