عنوان مقاله [English]
Although the great narrators and scholars have narrated the "preservation of forty traditions" and they wrote many books and treatises based on them, but these traditions are not widely transmitted and they do not have the documentary authenticity. However, they can be assured and validated by relying on some proofs, such as narrative and practical reputation.
These traditions encompass all areas of religion and, unlike some scholars’ opinion; they are not devoted to two areas of belief and worship. The purpose of "preserving" them is not only to memorize them, but to do anything to preserve them and prevent their destruction.
