Abstract

This study tries to analyze the hadith حب العرب إيمان وبغضهم كفر which means that loving Arabs is faith and hating them is considered infidels. This phenomenon is not spared from the politicization of hadith carried out by certain groups for their interests. Because after the death of the Prophet (s), the Muslims needed something that could replace the religious authority became the norm in daily life carried out by the Prophet (s) when he was alive. However, due to the lack of management to select hadiths in the second century Hijriyah, it is no wonder that many narrative that are spread among the people are used by certain groups for their political interests. I analyze it with the Mahmud At-Thahan’s method, the conclusion is it can be concluded a weak hadith. According to the hadith scholars it cannot be used as evidence and not to be practiced.
