About The Book

Before you is the English translation of the classical treatise al-Rihla fi Talab al-Hadith by the great scholar of the Shafi’i school of jurisprudence and the imam of his time, Khatib al-Baghdadi. 

His complete biography from Imam al-Dhahabi’s voluminous work Siyaar A’laam al-Nubala has also been translated and added herein.

This treatise is essentially a gathering of powerful and insightful narrations (of the Companions, pious predecessors, and the Prophet Musa) that emphasise the importance of travelling and exerting efforts towards seeking knowledge. 

It also serves as a historical record, highlighting the efforts of the early generations of scholars without whom the knowledge would not have been collected. 

These narrations also serve as a reminder of the high aspirations and humility required by Muslims in the pursuit of knowledge, a wakeup call to tread the path of our pious predecessors.

Imam al-Dhahabi said regarding al-Khatib: 

He produced a great amount of literature and was advanced in his works to the extent that he overshadowed his peers… He eventually became indisputably the most learned person of his time.
Abu ‘Alī al-Baradani said,

The hafiz of our time, Abu Bakr al-Khatib narrated to us. I have never seen the like of him, nor do I think he witnessed anyone similar to him.
