The excellence of books of
Hadeeth such as al Bukharee!
Al-Fadl ibn Isma’eel al-Jarjaanee said in his lines of poetry:
“Saheeh al Bukharee – if they were fair to it,
would not be written except with water of gold,
It is the difference between the guided and the blinded,
It is a barrier excluding distress and ruin.
The asaaneed are like the stars of the sky,
The main text like a shooting star, With it,
the scales of the religion of the prophet (sallallahu alyhi wa sallaam) were set up,
The foreigners followed the arab in submitting to it,
Making a sheild from the fire, with no doubt in it.
Distinguishing between those who recieve (Allaah’s) pleasure
and those who recieve His anger”
