Al-Musnad al-Sahih or Sahih MuslimThe Authentic Collection of Imam MuslimSynopsisMuslim scholars past and present have collectively agreed that the Hadith compilation of Imam Muslim is the second most authentic book in Hadith Sciences after the collection of his teacher Imam al-Bukhari. For the last 12 centuries, it has received wide acclaim from leading scholars around the Muslim world, some of whom even preferred it to the Sahih collection of Imam al-Bukhari.Sahih Muslim is a collection of 3033 Ahadith (Prophetic traditions) indexed in accordance with their jurisprudential benefit and dealing with issues such as creed, rulings, ethics, and Islamic manners. Imam Muslim spent over 15 labourious years collecting, verifying and compiling Hadith, throughout which time he studied over 300,000 Hadith from over 220 scholars in seven countries. This compilation does not include every authentic Hadith that Imam Muslim knew, but as he himself put it, “Only those authentic Hadith have I put, that have been unanimously agreed upon.”Due to its continued importance, there have been numerous exegeses written in dedication to its explanation, the most famous being that of the great Shafi scholar Imam Yahya ibn Sharafuddin al-Nawawi al-Dimishqi.
