Abstract


The anti-hadith phenomenon in Malaysia has urged the authorities to implement varieties of grassroots actions to combat its spread. Various parties have come together to address this issue, especially the religious authorities whether at the federal or state level. Besides that, mosque institutions play their roles by organizing weekly talks and lectures to overcome the anti-hadith movement. Therefore, this study was conducted to measure the extent to which the mosque institutions in Malaysia have successfully contributed to the eradication of the anti-hadith group among society. This study was a quantitative study in which the researcher has distributed survey questionnaires on demographic, practice and involvement with lectures in mosques and also questions related to the anti-hadith. A total of 800 people were involved in the survey. The finding based on detailed analysis has shown that those who liked to present themselves in the mosques were safe from the influence of the anti-hadith. This finding illustrates that religious teachings in mosques have managed to keep the faith of the Muslims from being misguided in terms of Islamic practices and unfavourable potential to be influenced by the anti-hadith movement less than those who did not go there. Based on this study, religious education in mosques is one of the main factors which could save the Muslims from the influence of the anti-hadith. Hence, this study suggested that all parties should enhance and diversify the religious lectures.
