Sahih Muslim – Hadith Collection


The position of Imam Bukhari’s Sahih in the literature is not, of course, unrivalled. Another Sahih was being compiled almost simultaneously, which was considered its superior by some, its equal by others, and second to it by most. This was the Sahih of Imam Muslim.

Like Imam Bukhari too, he wrote a good number of books and treatises on hadith, and on related subjects. Ibn anl-Nadeem mentions five books by him on the subject. Haajee Khaleefah adds the names of many other works by him in the same field. In his Sahih he examined a third of a million ahadith, from which he selected only about four thousand, which the hadith scholars unanimously regarded as sound.
