The Biography of Imam Bukhaaree (May Allah have mercy on him)
by Salaahud-Deen ibn ‘Alee ibn ‘Abdul-Maujood
This is the second book in the series, and it deals with the biography of the Imam of Hadeeth scholars, whose lifelong pursuit of knowledge culminated in the authorship of a book that, in terms of its importance and truthfulness, ranks second only to the Book of Allah. I am of course referring here to none other than Muhammad ibn Ismaa’eel Al-Bukhaaree- May Allah have mercy on him.
This is the second in a series of books on the biographies of Muslim scholars. I hope to focus not just on their contributions to the vast wealth of Islamic knowledge with which Allah SWT has blessed this nation, but also on the more private and personal aspects of their lives: their manners, their piety, and their worship. These are issues we need to learn about, for the people of this nation cannot hope to achieve a return to their past glory and honor unless they assume the qualities that, in effect, defined the Muslims of the first few generations of Islam.
As for the scholars to whom I am referring, Faith reached the deepest depths of their minds and hearts and flowed freely through their veins. One senses that every breath they took as well as every movement they made was for the sake of Allah. If they spoke, they spoke for the sake of Allah. If they spoke, they spoke for the sake of Allah; and if they remained silent, that too was for the sake of Allah SWT. They illuminated the world with their piety, worship, and deeds. If one were to study their manners and deeds, one would feel that theirs were the manners and deeds of Prophets. And if one were to read about their dealings with people, one would feel that one had come across practical demonstrations of the teachings of the Noble Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW.
