Muhammad Iqbal Siddiqi
Central Asia, known in historical sources as Mawara-un-nehr, has given the world many religious scholars whose names are inscribed for ever on the pages of Islamic History. Among them we find such a distinguished person as Abu Abdur Rahman Ahmad bin Shu’aib an-NasÃ£’i. His book Sunan occupies an outstanding place among six principal hadith collections (Sihah Sittah) known in the Muslim world. Imam NasÃ£’i was very careful while selecting materials for his work. This is why many scholars consider that the book Sunan NasÃ£’i occupies third place in Hadith collections after Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. It contains 5764 tradition, said to have been carefully collected out of 500,000. The learned translator of Sunan NasÃ£’i has the full command over the English language and an instinctive feel of the Arabic language. As such, he is very competent to translate this Hadith collection into English. The English rendering of Sunan NasÃ£’i is thus faithful, accurate and very close to the original.
