The probative value of solitary reports is one of the important discussions in Islamic legal theory. Since the establishment of probative value for a thing in one science does not necessitate the probative value of the same thing in other sciences, and just as some have accepted the probative value of solitary reports in jurisprudence while negating the same in other sciences like theology, exegesis and legal theory, we have attempted in this paper to study the general evidence provided for the probative value of solitary reports in the domain of legal theory and to classify the evidence in accordance with the level of strength of each of the proofs i.e. Qurʾānic verses, sunnah, reason, the wont of the intelligent etc. in establishing the probative value of these solitary narrations in the field of legal theory.
