The Islamic view boils down to fixing this date of origin during the life of the prophet, when his behaviour was generally and undisputably taken as normative for all his followers, especially immediately after Muhammad's death when the Muslim community had nothing else to be guided by except an, as yet, uncodified Qur'an. T h i s is supposed to have soon resulted in the stand­ ardization of the tools with which this exemplary behaviour of the prophet was transmitted to later generations, which may, according to Muslim scholars, be taken to coincide with the date of origin of the standardization of the isnad, some twenty-five years after the prophet's death.
