Could you kindly explain the muqaddimah (introduction) of Imam Muslim from his Sahih Muslim?



Dear Brother,

It generally takes a teacher about two weeks of lessons to explain this masterpiece in a Hadith class.

It is currently impossible for me to pen these explanations for you.

Further, this introduction is only suited for those who are adequately equipped, academically.

I would advise that you study knowledge of Din in a reputable institute, and will thereby have an opportunity to eventually study the muqaddimah of Sahih Muslim under a qualified authority insha Allah.


Note: My Honourable teacher, Moulana Muhammad Ilyas Patel saheb (hafizahullah) – a senior Hadith teacher at Madrasah Ta’limuddeen in Isipingo Beach, Durban, South Africa- is currently working on a brief explanation in English.

May Allah Ta’ala make it a reality very soon.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
