Mohd Asyran Safwan Kamaruzaman (First Author), Mohd Haidhar Kamarzaman (Corresponding Author)

The doctrine or belief in Nur Mu?ammad is very popular among the practitioners of tarekat and tasawwuf. Some of the practitioners of the tarekat make this Nur Mu?ammad as one of the Islamic creed to be believed. This belief in Nur Mu?ammad became a polemic among Muslims that invited the scholars to study the authenticity of the narration (riwayah)of ?adith Jabir which is the basis for the creed of Nur Mu?ammad. In addition, the scholars also study the implications associated with the Muslim creed for those who believe in the doctrine of Nur Mu?ammad. This study focuses on the critique and commentary of two contemporary hadith, creed and tarekat figures namely al-Ghumari (d. 1993) and al-Harari (d. 2008) and further analyzes their critique of the doctrine of Nur Mu?ammad based on the Manhaj Ahli Sunnah Waljamaah.
