Number of Narrations in Mustakhraj Abi ‘Awanah

Question

How many Hadiths are there in Musnad Abi Awanah?

 

Answer

Musnad Abi ‘Awanah/Mustakhraj Abi ‘Awanah is a Mustakhraj on Sahih Muslim authored by Imam Abu ‘Awanah Ya’qub ibn Ishaq Al Isfaraini who passed away in the year 316 A.H.

 

There are several editions of the book. The edition that we have is printed in Saudi Arabia by Al Jami’atul Islamiyyah in 20 volumes, but is incomplete. This edition of the book ends within Kitabud Da’awat which is just under 90% of Sahih Muslim.  The total number of Hadiths up to this point is 11882. This will include repetitions.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
