Reliable book of Muslim Sharif Sahih Hadith written by Imam Muslim.
Sahih Muslim is one of the Kutub al-Sittah (six major hadith collections) in Sunni Islam.It is highly acclaimed by Sunni Muslims as well as Zaidi Shia Muslims. It is considered the second most authentic hadith collection after Sahih al-Bukhari. It was collected by Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj, also known as Imam Muslim. Sahih Muslim, together with Sahih al-Bukhari is termed as Sahihayn.
The collector of the Sahih Muslim, Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj, was born in 204 AH (817/18 CE) in Nishapur (in modern-day Iran) and died in 261 AH (874/75 CE) in the city of his birth. He traveled widely to gather his collection of hadith (plural of hadith), including to areas now in Iraq, the Arabian Peninsula, Syria and Egypt.Out of 300,000 hadith which he evaluated, approximately 12,000 were extracted for inclusion into his collection based on stringent acceptance criteria. Each report in his collection was checked and the veracity of the chain of reporters was painstakingly established.Sunni Muslims consider it the second most authentic hadith collection, after Sahih al-Bukhari. Sahih Muslim is divided into 43 books, containing a total of 9200 narrations. However, it is important to realize that Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj never claimed to collect all authentic traditions as his goal was to collect only traditions that all Muslims should agree on about accuracy.According to Munthiri, there are a total of 2,200 hadiths (without repetition) in Sahih Muslim. According to Muhammad Amin, there are 1,400 authentic hadiths that are reported in other books, mainly the six major hadith collections.
Hadith literally means talk or discourse or Athar in Islam refers to what Muslims believe to be a record of the words, actions, and the silent approval of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Hadith have been called the backbone of Islamic civilization, and within that religion the authority of hadith as a source for religious law and moral guidance ranks second only to that of the Quran (which Muslims hold to be the word of Allah revealed to his messenger Muhammad). Scriptural authority for hadith comes from the Quran which enjoins Muslims to emulate Muhammad and obey his judgments. While the number of verses pertaining to law in the Quran is relatively few, hadith give direction on everything from details of religious obligations, to the correct forms of salutations and the importance of benevolence to slaves.Thus the “great bulk” of the rules of Sharia (Islamic law) are derived from hadith, rather than the Quran.
The Quran also romanized Qur’an or Koran,is the central religious text of Islam, believed by Muslims to be a revelation from God.It is widely regarded as the finest work in classical Arabic literature.It is organised in 114 chapters, which consist of verses.Muslims believe that the Quran was orally revealed by God to the final prophet, Muhammad, through the archangel Gabriel (Jibril), incrementally over a period of some 23 years, beginning in the month of Ramadan, when Muhammad was 40; and concluding in 632, the year of his death.Muslims regard the Quran as Muhammad’s most important miracle.
