Abstract

Historical research aims to find historical facts of the human beings through historical methodology to reflect the facts of the past that closer to the truth. Even though, Islamic history is like a general history that applies methodology and systematic inquiry data processing, nevertheless it has its own identity, especially in the early Islamic history, which is closely related to the religion. However, it has some methods that are different from general history methodology. This article intends to present some aspects of Islamic methodology in four main areas; classification of evidence, examination of evidence, criticism as well as interpretation of Islamic historical evidence. The study found that the Islamic historical methodology is quite different from general history in some aspects. Such differences are still preserved for the academic accuracy and as such do not reduce the credibility of Islamic history.
