About The Book
Sahih Muslim is one of the Kutub al-Sittah in Sunni Islam. It is highly acclaimed by Sunni Muslims as well as Zaidi Shia Muslims. It is considered the second most authentic hadith collection after Sahih al-Bukhari. It was collected by Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj, also known as Imam Muslim
About The Author
Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj was born in the town of Nishapur in the Abbasid province of Khorasan, in present-day northeastern Iran. Historians differ as to his date of birth, though it is usually given as 202 AH (817/818), 204 AH (819/820), or 206 AH (821/822).
Adh-Dhahabi said, "It is said that he was born in the year 204 AH," though he also said, "But I think he was born before that."
Ibn Khallikan could find no report of Muslim's date of birth, or age at death, by any of the uff (hadith masters), except their agreement that he was born after 200 AH (815/816). He cites Ibn as-Salah, who cites Ibn al-Bayyi`'s Kitab `Ulama al-Amsar, that the date was 206 AH (821/822). Ibn Khallikan had acquired this work and found that Ibn as-Salah had estimated the year of birth from Muslim's age (55 hijri years) at his death in 25 Rajab 261 AH (May 875), and as reported by Ibn al-Bayyi`, agrees the date of birth was therefore 206 AH (821/822). Ibn al-Bayyi` reports he was buried in Nasarabad, a suburb of Nishapur.
According to scholars he was of Arab or Persian origin  The nisbah of "al-Qushayri" signifies Muslim's belonging to the Arab tribe of Banu Qushayr, members of which migrated to the newly conquered Persian territory during the expansion of the Rashidun Caliphate. A scholar named Shams al-Dn al-Dhahab introduced the idea that he may have been a mawla of Persian descent, attributed to the Qushayr tribe by way of wala' (alliance). An ancestor of Muslim may have been a freed slave of a Qushayri, or may have accepted Islam at the hands of a Qushayri. According to 2 other scholars, Ibn al-Athr and Ibn al-Salh, he was actually an Arab member of that tribe of which his family had migrated to Iran nearly two centuries earlier following the conquest
Estimates on the number of hadiths in his books vary from 3,033 to 12,000, depending on whether duplicates are included, or only the text (isnad) is. His Sahih ("authentic") is said to share about 2000 hadiths with Bukhari's Sahih.
The author's teachers included Harmala ibn Yahya, Sa'id ibn Mansur, Abd-Allah ibn Maslamah al-Qa'nabi, al-Dhuhali, al-Bukhari, Ibn Ma'in, Yahya ibn Yahya al-Nishaburi al-Tamimi, and others. Among his students were al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Abi Hatim al-Razi, and Ibn Khuzaymah, each of whom also wrote works on hadith. After his studies throughout the Arabian Peninsula, Egypt, Iraq and Syria, he settled in his hometown of Nishapur, where he met, and became a lifelong friend of, Bukhari.
