Conflict and difference of hadiths means inconsistency in content and reasoning of two or more hadiths. The issue of resolving the conflict and difference of hadiths, except in a few cases, is related to the understanding and knowing the purpose of the hadith, not to the critique, purification, and distinction of the valid hadith from the invalid one. The present research has investigated the methods of resolving the news conflict in viewpoint of Sheikh Ansari in a descriptive-analytical method and has concluded that:
The Grand Sheikh uses the three methods of addition, preference, and selection - maintaining the mentioned order - in order to resolve the news conflict - in such a way that the customary addition takes precedence over implementation of preference rules, and if customary adaptation and addition is not possible, he refers to the preferences in order to prefer one of the two conflicting news over another and if there is no preference, it is time to select and he selects one of the two conflicting news.
Accepting the generality over specific, absolute over constrained, government and entry, accepting the command over recommended one, prohibition to forbid, specific time and taqiyyah (hide and on-time action) are the most common methods of addition between conflicting narrations in the viewpoing of Sheikh Ansari.
