The study begins with an evaluation of Ibn al-Madini's life, rihla (educational journey), teachers and students. By using this information, the author's school of thought and atmosphere has tried to be determined. The study then discusses Ilalu'l-hadith, which is considered to be the earliest ilal text (hidden defects in hadith), its manuscript, narrators, publications, composition, date it was written, form of classification and lastly its use as a resource for later publications. In the last section covering the context analyzation of Ilal al-hadith, the information of rijal and jarh-ta'deel were studied in the scope of the narrators' biographies and their content. The study continues by reviewing the history of hadith narration according to the list of medar narrators given by Ali b. al-Madini and the different schools of thought found in diverse cities. Lastly, the study puts forth the details of problematic narration, which was intensely examined by the publication, and Ali ibn al-Madînî's specialized field of ilal al-hadith by using exemplary narrations.
