The status of the narrations in the understanding and interpretation of the Qur’an is undoubtedly high and cannot be denied. The science of interpretation and exegetical narrations are in harmony with the Qur’an. Their introduction goes back to the revelation of the verses. The hadiths were subjected to various external and internal pests throughout history. With a cursory look at the story of the hadith, especially after the honorable Prophet (may God bless him and grant him peace), we find that the pests and influences such as the prevention of publication, the narration of the hadith, the deletion of sources and the attribution of the exegetical narrations, the transmission by meaning and the Israelis, and the different readings provided difficult conditions for determining the correct hadiths from the weak and incorrect. This is why the refining of sources Modern and explanatory sources are necessary. The studies conducted in this field showed us the researchers' efforts and interest in identifying and monitoring the harmful effects of narratives, rather than focusing on the criteria for measuring explanatory narratives. This groundbreaking article is organized in a descriptive-analytical fashion. And it tries to study the criteria for measuring the narrations in the field of interpretation of the Qur’an with complete accuracy. The result of this study is that the most important and most efficient criteria for revision are the evaluation of the content and the measurement of the contents of the narrations with the principles of rationality and tradition (presentation of the hadith on the Qur’an and the definitive Sunnah) and the collection of multiple quotations and analogues from Hadith is the investigation of successive and useful news, as well as the reinforcement of one news.
