Beside his role in Indonesia’s independence, his contribution on developingthe Islamic education also colors the history of this country through his Pondok Pesantren Tebuireng.As one of the chain of Islamic scholars’ network, he connected path of the Islamic sciences between the Scholars of Nusantaraand Middle East. Based on its fact, this article will study his thought on hadith science through his works. This study is important because he has chains of transmition which linked him to the authors of al-S{ah}i>h}ayn and al-Muwat}t}a’ from Mah}fu>z} Tremas. Moreover, until the present time, Pesantren Tebuireng still organize the study of al-S{ah}i>h}ayn in the last Sha‘ba>n till the last Ramad}a>n.
