About Sahih al-Bukhari
Sahih al-Bukhari is one of six works of hadith widely recognized as authentic and canonical and considered the most authoritative source of hadith along with Sahih Muslim. Bukhari (full name Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Ismail bin Ibrahim bin al-Mughira al-Ja'fai) was born in 194 A.H. and died in 256 A.H. His criteria for acceptance into the collection were amongst the most stringent of all the scholars of ahadith.

Bukhari gave definitive shape to the body of hadith as well as the means of determining accuracy and tracing genealogy, giving rise to the methodology of ilm al-rijal (“science of the men,” i.e., authorities in hadith transmission).
This course is open to both brothers and sisters as it will be taught in a segregated environment.
Prior registration is required for this course.
