About The Book
Tarikh Baghdad ("History of Baghdad"), most important work done by Khatib al-Baghdadi. Ostensibly a history of Baghdad, it is more specifically a reference work in narrator-authentication (‘ilm al-rijal) and a valuable compendium of 4,385 hadiths narrated with their full chains, over half of them (2,253) not found in the two books of Sahih and the four Sunan.
In this respect al-Khatib’s rank as an independent narrator is comparable to that of al-Bayhaqi (d. 458), Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr (d. 463), and Ibn ‘Asakir (d. 571).
Concerning al-Khatib’s authentication method in Tarikh Baghdad, al-Sam'ani narrated that he said: "Whenever in the Tarikh I mention a man concerning whom opinions vary in commendation and discreditation, then the preferred position concerning him is placed at the conclusion of his biographical notice."
