An Introduction to Sahih al-Bukhari

Based on the book Madkhal Rai’ ila Sahih al-Bukhari by Shaykh Akram Nadwi 

Course description

This 4-day short course will provide an in-depth introduction to Sahih al-Bukhari, one of the most important books in Islamic intellectual history. In order for students to be able to truly understand some of the intricacies of this monumental work, Shaykh Akram Nadwi has written ‘Madkhal Rai’ ila Sahih al-Bukhari’, which includes unique contributions informed by numerous years of research and teaching. This book will be the basis of the short course. Topics to be covered will include the biography of Imam al-Bukhari, the popularisation of the Sahih, its commentaries, Bukhari’s methodology, conditions as well as criticisms of the text, responses to criticisms and more.

Soft copies of the text will not be available for this short course. As such, we highly recommend students purchase a hard copy of Shaykh Akram’s Madkhal for reference throughout the duration of the course.
