Hadiths are the most important texts that lead to the understanding of religion after the Qur'an. It is thought that the re-examination, explanation and evaluation of the hadiths as their being historical documents and considering their context are important today. Regarding this understanding activity, it may be said that it is important to use some methods or techniques used in social sciences. In this study, The 5 W's and the H technique used in journalism was tried to apply to the example of “hadith of holding Mu’?z’s hands". At first, questions of who / to whom, what, where, when, why and how were asked as usually used in this technique and tried to be answered in accordance with the literature. The Prophet attributing importance to every field of life with his divine message to humanity also gave a special importance to education and "I was sent as a teacher," he said. Therefore, events and facts in the hadith were evaluated by means of the data of today's educational sciences.
