The Demise of Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) – Part Seven

Written by

Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) passed away in the month of Rajab in the year 261 AH. At the time of his demise, he was either 55 or 57 years old (based on the two different reports regarding the year in which he was born).

Regarding the cause of the demise of Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah), Ahmed bin Salamah has reported the following incident:

On one occasion, Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) held a gathering to discuss Hadith. Thereafter, while they were discussing Hadith, a certain person quoted a Hadith which Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) did not have knowledge of. This filled Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) with concern and he thus wished to locate the Hadith.

Allah Ta‘ala had blessed Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) with many illustrious Ustaads, the likes of Imaam Ahmed bin Hambal (rahimahullah), Ishaaq bin Raahwayh (rahimahullah), Abdullah bin Maslamah Qa’nabi (rahimahullah), Qutaibah bin Sa’eed (rahimahullah),Yahya bin Ma’een (rahimahullah), Abu Zur’ah (rahimahullah), etc. (Siyar A’laamin Nubalaa 12/561)

The Muhadditheen explain that from all the ustaads whom Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) had benefited from, it was Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) who had played a significant role in molding him into the great Imaam that he became. Hence, the illustrious Muhaddith, Imaam Daaraqutni (rahimahullah), says, “If it was not for Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah), Imaam Muslim would have not treaded the path of Hadith.” (Sharh-u-Sharh-i-Nuhkbatil Fikar pg. 280)

The Status of Saheeh Muslim – Part Four

Written by

There is consensus of the Ulama that the Saheeh of Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) and the Saheeh of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) are the two most authentic kitaabs after the Qur’aan Majeed. From the two, the Saheeh of Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) is regarded as more authentic and holds a higher rank. (Tadreeb-ur-Raawi 1/96)

Imaam Muslim (rahimahullah) mentioned, “I presented this kitaab of mine (Saheeh Muslim) to Imaam Abu Zur’ah (rahimahullah). Every Hadith in this kitaab, in which he found some weakness and showed me some problem – I left it out and did not include it in the kitaab, and every Hadith regarding which he said, ‘It is saheeh (authentic), and there is no weakness in it,’ – then these are the Ahaadith which I kept in my kitaab.” (Siyar A’laamin Nubalaa 12/568)
