The Oxford Dictionary of Islam What is This? Covers the religious, political, and social spheres of global Islam in the modern world

    Sahih al-Bukhari

    One of six canonical collections of hadith. With Sahih Muslim, considered the most authoritative among Sunni Muslims. Compiled and codified in the ninth century by Muhammad ibn Ismail al-Bukhari . Contains approximately 7,275 traditions in nine books, arranged thematically, recounting Muhammad 's statements on issues related to faith, belief, prayer, purification, alms, fasting, pilgrimage, monotheism, commerce, inheritance, crimes, judicial procedures, murders, wills, vows, oaths, war, wine, and hunting. Al-Bukhari was noted for careful testing of genuineness of hadith and tracing genealogies, giving rise to the methodology of ilm al-rijal (“study of men,” i.e., study of authorities in hadith transmission) and definitive shape to the body of hadith.
