About The Book
In writing this commentary the author relied heavily on the scholarly work of Fadlullah al-Jilani, Fadl Allah al-Samad fi Sharh al-Adab al-Mufrad, and he referred to the commentaries on the major Hadith anthologies. In translating the text of the hadiths, author referred to, and benefited by, the translation of Al-Adab al-Mufrad published by the UK Islamic Academy; but did not restrict himself to it, preferring to rely mainly on his earlier translation and to amend it where the Academy's translation provided improvement.
“I have only been sent to perfect good moral character.” – Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
This anthology of 1329 hadiths is a treasured work in Muslim history by one of its most respected scholars, Imam Bukhari. All of the hadith are directly related to the standards of manners and morality Islam wants to prevail and Muslims throughout the world have been guided by it since its preparation over a millennium ago.
This edition includes a contemporary commentary on each topical collection of hadiths, clearly emphasising the relevance of the Prophet’s teachings in our modern and complex societies. This pioneering addition marks it out as perhaps the first English work commenting on and explaining a full anthology of hadiths.

Raised an orphan, he excelled in the sciences of hadith and travelled much of the Islamic world in pursuit of knowledge and the preservation of the sunnah.
Acknowledged by his peers and students, including Ahmad b. Hanbal (d.855), Muslim b. al-Hajjaj (d. 875) and Muhammad b. 'Isa al-Tirmidhi (d. 892), as one of the greatest imams of Islam, he holds a permanent place in Muslim scholarship. He died in the village of Khartank, Samarkand in 870 leaving behind a legacy of important reference works including his most magnum opus, Al-Jami' al-Sahih, widely referred to as Sahih al-Bukhari, considered by Sunni Muslims as the most authentic book after the Qur'an.
