Ibn al-Salah on the Seven Authors of Excellent Books

12 Jan

Ibn al-Salah mentions in his famous introduction to the hadith disciplines that seven scholars have authored excellent books. I am mentioning them here whilst adding the books by which they are most renowned:

  • al-Daraqutni (306-385) authored a Sunan and an ‘Ilal
  • al-Hakim al-Naysaburi (321-405) authored al-Mustadrak and Ma’rifat ‘Anwa ‘Ulum al-Hadith
  • ‘Abd al-Ghani al-Azdi (332-409)
  • Abu Nu’aym al-Asfahani (334-430) authored Hilyat al-Awliya
  • Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (368-463) authored al-Tamhid and al-Istidhkar
  • al-Bayhaqi (384-458) authored al-Sunan al-Kubra and Ma’rifat al-Sunan
  • al-Khatib al-Baghdadi (392-463) authored Tarikh al-Baghdad and al-Kifayah

    Jazakallahukhairan

    Perhaps it would be worthwhile mentioning what the books are about? Most of those books are some of the most recurring references an average taalib would encounter alhumdulillah 🙂
