What have the scholars said regarding Saheeh al-Bukhāri and Saheeh Muslim?

 

📚 Imām an-Nawawi (may Allāh have mercy upon him) said in his explanation of Saheeh Muslim: ‘the scholars have unanimosly agreed the most authentic books after the Noble Qur’ān are the Saheehayn; Saheeh al-Bukhāri and Saheeh Muslim, and the Ummah has received them with acceptance.’

 

📚 Ash-Shahrazūri (May Allāh have mercy upon him) said: ‘The _Ummah_ has received them with acceptance, apart from those whose opinions and differences are not taken in consensus.’

 

📚 Imām an-Nawawi (may Allāh have mercy on him) also said: ‘The _Ummah_ has unanimously agreed these two books _(al-Bukhāri and Muslim)_ are authentic and it is obligatory to follow their ahādeeth.’

 

Tahdheeb al-Asmā’ wa’l-Lughāt 1/73.

 

📚 Shaykh ul-Islām ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله said:

 

“There is no book beneath the canopy of Heaven which is more authentic than _(Saheeh)_ _al-Bukhāri_ and _Muslim_, after the Qur’ān.”

 

Majmū Fatāwa Shaykh ul-Islām ibn Taymiyyah رحمه الله 18/74

 

📚 Imām ul-Haramayn al-Juwayni رحمه الله said:

 

‘If a man was to swear that he would divorce his wife, if it were not the case that what is in the books of al-Bukhāri and Muslim is what they ruled to be sound of the words of the Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ, then divorce would not be binding upon him, and he would not be breaking his oath, because the Muslim scholars have unanimously agreed that they are authentic.’

 

📚 Al-Farbary (may Allāh have mercy upon him) reported from [al-Imām] al-Bukhāri saying: ‘I have not written down in my _Saheeh_ _(al-Bukhāri)_ a hadeeth except that I sought guidance from Allāh and I was certain with its authenticity.’

 

📚 Al-Imām ibn Khuzaymah (may Allāh have mercy upon him) said: ‘I have not seen under the canopy of the Heavens anyone who is more knowledgeable and more observant in the _ahadeeth_ of the Messenger of Allāh صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ than [al-Imām] al-Bukhāri.

ماذا قال العلماء عن صحيحي البخاري ومسلم؟

📚 قال الإمام النووي في شرح مسلم: اتفق العلماء، على أن أصح الكتب بعد القرآن الكريم الصحيحان: صحيح البخاري، وصحيح مسلم، وتلقتهما الأمة بالقبول.

📚 ويقول الشهرزوري: الأمة تلقت ذلك بالقبول، سوى من لا يعتد بخلافه ووفاقه في الإجماع.

📚 وقال الإمام النووي أيضاً :

أجمعت الأمة على صحة هذين الكتابين ووجوب العمل بأحاديثهما

تهذيب الأسماء واللغات 1/73

📚 ويقول ابن تيمية:

ليس تحت أديم السماء كتاب أصح من البخاري ومسلم بعد القرآن

مجموع الفتاوى 18/74

📚 وقال إمام الحرمين الجويني:

لو حلف إنسان بطلاق امرأته أن ما في كتابي البخاري ومسلم مما حكما بصحته من قول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لما ألزمته الطلاق، ولا حنثته، لإجماع علماء المسلمين على صحتهما

📚 وروى الفربري عن البخاري قال:

ما أدخلت في الصحيح حديثا إلا بعد أن استخرت الله تعالى وتيقنت صحته.

📚 ويقول الإمام ابن خزيمة:

ما رأيت تحت أديم السماء أعلم بحديث رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وأحفظ له من البخاري.
