About The Book
Fath al-Bari (Victory of the Creator) is the most celebrated Sunni commentary of Sahih al-Bukhari, written by Ibn Hajar Asqalani in 15 volumes. First two volumes are included among index (Fehrist) and introduction (Muqaddima) namely as "Hadiyu al-Sari" (The Traveller's guide),in which he talked about principles of hadith, Ruwat and their thiqah (Narrators of Hadith and their authentication).
It is reported that it took Asqalani 25 years to finish his work. A work which was the crown both of its genre and of the Imam’s academic career.
It is appreciated by the ulema for the doctrinal soundness of its author, for its complete coverage of Bukhari’s material, its mastery of the relevant Arabic sciences, the wisdom it shows in drawing lessons (fawa’id) from the hadiths it expounds, and its skill in resolving complex disputes over variant readings.

Abul Fadl Shihab al-Din Ahmad ibn Ali al-Kannani al-Asqalani, better known by the name of Imam Ibn Hajar, was born in Cairo in 773 AH /1372 CE.
He began his studies at the age of five and completed the memorisation of the Quran by the age of nine.

He authored many works on hadith, history, biography, Quranic exegesis, poetry and Shafi'i jurisprudence; among the most famous of them is his fourteen-volume commentary on Sahih al-Bukhari called Fath al-Bari.
