Sahih Muslim (book)

(Redirected from Sahih Muslim)

Al-Jāmiʿ al-ṣaḥīḥ known as Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim, written by Muslim b. Hajjaj al-Niyshaburi, is the most important Sunni collection of hadiths after Sahih al-Bukhari. The book contains 7275 hadiths from the Prophet (s), and ignoring the repetitive hadiths, it contains about 4000. Muslim himself claims that all the hadiths in his book are reliable and accurate. However, the accuracy of some of its hadiths has been questioned by some Sunni scholars, such as al-Nawawi, al-Hakim al-Niyshaburi, and Ibn al-Hajar al-'Asqalani. The book has been subject to criticisms because of problems in its chains of transmissions (failure to mention some links thereof) and problems in contents like inclusion, as well as unreliable transmitters of hadiths. The Shi'as believe that there are unreliable and fabricated hadiths in Sahih Muslim.
