Sahaba was the first to carry on Islamic legacy and was meritorious for transmitting the teaching of Rasulullah saw who brought message and bear Islamic Phrophethood. Through the sahaba, started form tabi‘in, tabi‘altabi‘in, and the following generations—up until the current moment, we could get acquainted and experience Islamic existence; while on the contrary, without sahaba, it is difficult for us to imagine how Islamic teaching could reach us. However, what if the credibility of the sahaba, as the source of the Rasulullah saw’s teaching narration, is doubted? At this point, it becomes a complicated issue because it could raise various suspicions of the authenticity of the hadith (al-sunna) itself, and inevitably, also to Islamic practices—either partially or wholly—that have been embraced by the Muslims. How could we guarantee the authenticity of a hadith coming from a source (sahaba) whose credibility is questionable? This paper attempts to raise the theme of ‘adalah (credibility) of the sahaba from the viewpoint of ontological and epistemological ‘adalah judgment as well as the figures and axiological motifs underlying the emergence of ‘adalah issue
