About The Book
Sunan an-Nasa’i is a collection of hadith compiled by Imam Ahmad an-Nasa’i (rahimahullah). His collection is unanimously considered to be one of the six canonical collections of hadith (Kutub as-Sittah) of the Sunnah of the Prophet (s.w.t). It contains roughly 5700 hadith (with repetitions) in 52 books.
About The Author
Al-Nasā’ī (214 – 303 AH; c. 829 – 915 CE), full name Abū `Abd ar-Raḥmān Aḥmad ibn Shu`ayb ibn Alī ibn Sīnān al-Nasā’ī, ( variant: Abu Abdel-rahman Ahmed ibn Shua’ib ibn Ali ibn Sinan ibn Bahr ibn Dinar Al-Khurasani); he was a noted collector of hadith (sayings of Muhammad), of Persian origin, and the author of “As-Sunan” one of the six canonical hadith collections recognized by Sunni Muslims. From his “As-Sunan al-Kubra (The Large Sunan)” he wrote an abridged version, “Al-Mujtaba” or Sunan al-Sughra (The Concise Sunan). Of the fifteen books he is known to have written, six treat the science of hadīth.
Al-Nasa’i himself states he was born in the year 830 (215 h.) – although some say it was in 829 or 869 (214 or 255 h.) – in the city of Nasa in present-day Turkmenistan – part of Khorasan, a region in Western Asia known for its many centres of Islamic learning. There he attended the gatherings and circles of knowledge, known as “halqas”. At about 15 years old, he began his travels with his first journey to Qutaibah. He covered the whole Arabian Peninsula seeking knowledge from scholars in Iraq, Kufa, the Hijaz, Syria and Egypt, where he eventually settled.
According to Sunni sources, he was beaten or tortured to death by a mob upon refusal to praise Muawiyah I. Abu Abdullah Al-Hafiz said:
“I heard Ali ibn Umar saying, ‘Abu Abd-ur-Rahman An-Nasai was the most knowledgeable among the Sheikhs (teachers) of Egypt in terms of Fiqh, and authenticity and narrators of Hadiths, during his time. Being the best among them, they felt envy towards him. Thus, he moved to Ar-Ramlah (a town in Palestine) where he was asked about Muawiyah ibn Abu Sufyan. He did not reply in a good thing, and thus people beat him badly. He asked to be moved to Makkah, in spite of his illness, where he passed away.”
Abu Abdullah also said: “In addition to his multiple merits, he was given martyrdom at the end of his life.”
