Partial Sunan Abu-Dawud
Sunan Abu-Dawud is a collection of
sayings and deeds of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) (also known as the sunnah).
The reports of the Prophet's sayings and deeds are called
ahadith. Abu-Dawud lived a couple of centuries after the Prophet's
death and worked extremely hard to collect his ahadith. Each report in his
collection was checked for compatibility with the Qur'an, and the veracity of
the chain of reporters had to be painstakingly established. Abu-Dawud's
collection is recognized by the overwhelming majority of the Muslim world to be
one of the most authentic collections of the Sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh),
however it is also known to contain some weak ahadith (some of which he pointed
out, others which he did not).
Abu-Dawud (full name Abu-Dawud Sulaiman bin
Al-Aash'ath Al-Azdi as-Sijistani) was born in 202 A.H. and died in 275 A.H. He
was one of the most widely travelled of the scholars of ahadith, going to Saudi
Arabia, Iraq, Khurasahn, Egypt, Syria, Nishapur, Marv, and other places for the
sole purpose of collecting ahadith. His primary interest was in law, hence his
collection focuses purely on legal ahadith. From about 50,000 ahadith, he chose
4,800 for inclusion in his work based on their superior authenticity.
It is important to realize,
however, that Abu-Dawud's collection is not complete: there are other scholars
who worked as Abu-Dawud did and collected other reports.
The translation of Sunan
Abu-Dawud found here is not complete! Roughly half of the collection is missing;
please take this into account if you cannot find a specific hadith.
