One of the six most authentic collections of the Ahadith (Sahih al-Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan an-Nasa'i, Sunan Abu Dawud, Sunan al-Tirmidhi, Sunan ibn Majah). It has 4800 Ahadith (selected from a mass of 50,000) divided into many different subjects, each section containing many Ahadith. The numbering system used by Abu-Dawud is consecutive and uninterrupted for the entire collection.
One of the great characteristics of the aforementioned book is that the researcher has compared with different Sharh of Sunan Abi Dawud and with the book of Rijal and Usul in order to search for the authenticity of Ruwat (Narrators) and also given the short explanation on the complicated issues and terminologies as well.
About The Shareh
Hadhrat Maulānā Khalil Ahmad Saharanpuri (r.a) was born toward the end of Safar 1269 A.H. (December 1852 A.D.) in Ambehta, a town in the district of Saharanpur India. He was named both “Zahiruddeen” and “Khalil Ahmad”, but Khalīl Ahmad became his official name. His mother, Bi Mubarak an-Nisa, was the daughter of Maulana Mamluk 'Ali (r.a) and the sister of Maulana Muhammad Ya’qub Nanotwi (r.a).
Maulana Khalil commenced his studies at an elementary school at the age of five. Maulana Mamluk 'Ali (r.a) conducted his Bismillah and Maulana Khalil Ahmad Sahib (r.a) soon completed the recitation of the Qur’an. He then studied the primary books of Urdu and Persian under various Ulama in Ambehta and Nanota. Thereafter, he accompanied his paternal uncle, Mamluk Ansar 'Ali, to Gwalior, where he studied the primary texts of Arabic grammar, after which he returned home.
During this period, some of his relatives insisted that he be enrolled at a secular school. Though he did not want to, he commenced his secular studies. he constantly made dua for Allāh to free him from the fetters of British education, Allah accepted his dua When Darul was opened in May 1866 ( 1283 A.H.) and his uncle, Maulana Muhammad Ya’qub (r.a) , was appointed as the Sadr-Mudarris (dean), MaulanaKhalil Ahmad Sahib (r.a) took permission from his parents and travelled to Deoband, where he continued his studies. Six months later, in November 1866, Mazahirul Uloom Saharanpur was established. There, another maternal uncle of Maulana Khalil Ahmad Sahib (r.a), Maulana Muhammad Mazhar (r.a) was appointed as the Sadr-Mudarris. Maulana Khalil Ahmad Sahib (r.a) transferred to Mazahirul Uloom Saharanpur where he completed his studies in 1288 AH (1871) at the tender age of 19.

Ibn Al-Jawzi is reported to have said: 'Whoever does not read the stories of the Salaf (righteous people of the past) and the path that they tread, he can never tread that path. It is befitting for a person to know and understand that the nature of an individual (character) is like that of a thief. If a person only lives with the people of his time, his nature will steal from them and will become similar to their nature. But if he reads the lives of the Salaf, his nature will become like theirs and he will learn from their character'.– Talbis Iblee
