This study used Stephen Levinson's framework of deixis for the analysis of distinct types of person deixis elements. The researcher adopted qualitative research design as the method for this analysis. In this study, the researcher found that the dominant deixis used in "Hadith" was the third person singular deixis especially the word "He" that dominantly refers to "Prophet Muhammad SAW in which shows that "Hadith" is the media to reveal the action, provisions, approvals and utterances of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his companions.
