عنوان مقاله [English]
Ibn Jonayd, whose name is mentioned alongside the name of Ibn Aqil as Qadimayn in some references, is among the jurisprudents attributed to believe in analogy by some precedent and recent scholars, albeit no works of him has been at hand till now. The recent thinkers’ reports are made based on the ones they have received from the common quotations presented by the precedents. However, all of them know him as one of the most outstanding jurisprudents of Imamiyeh. Ayatollah Sistani is one of the contemporary jurisprudents who have investigated his conduct. By orienting his works, the authors of the present paper have investigated some books such as Kashhi’s Rijal which contains the trend of Imams’ companions and the methodology of deduction given by them. Attempting to define analogy, the authors have tried their best to subtilize such an attribution and to clarify the instances which lead to the misconception of analogy. It is concluded that Ibn Jonayd could not have been a jurisprudent practicing analogy as is perceived today and such a conception is vigorously skeptic.
