About the Book
This work is an Abridgement of larger work by the author namely, Tahdhib al-Tahdhib. In the aforementioned title imam Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani mentions a hadith narrator's, birth place, known names, age, whom he or she might have studied with and their known errors in hadith criticism or their strength in hadith narrations, then followed by the opinion of expert scholars in the field on that individual.
In Taqrib al-Tahdhib he only mentions narrators name and quick ruling on that person's condition. Most of the eateries are one line only. Shaykh Muhammad 'Awwamah took the task of critically analyzing manuscripts of the work and comparing them so as to come away with concrete final product that is predominantly free of errors.
He also edited the work with extra quotes of the author in his other works as well as other experts in the field.
