Abstract

The main background in this study is the fact that cannot be denied that any communication or information will be effective if it fulfills the elements of "who says what which channel, media and what effects“. That statement seems relevant to be reconsidered in understanding, sorting and selecting Islamic websites in Indonesia as a reference as well as consumption of Islamic reading and studies. This study is important for knowing about who is behind the narrative of information is as important as knowing what is being narrated and the impact that is obtained from it. This study also important to know the narrative context of a hadith that is being explained on those websites, so that it is not uprooted from the historicity of its narration. By using mediatization theory, it can be concluded that the reason of the understanding hadith in the Islamic web can be classified into three categories, textual-literal reason, textual-interpretive reason, and contextual-liberative reason.
