Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah.
Today we're going to finish off the biographies of the Maha defin. And this is important. Why? Because when you understand their life and their biographies, then you can appreciate the hard work they put in, in compiling these books of Hadith as we've taken. And therefore, they give you that sense of assurance, that confidence that these are men of knowledge, they're reliable, they're super trustworthy. And that's important, that's all part of masala Hadith to actually learn the biographies of the men, and let's call the Alamo region. Or when you're learning Scala, this, this aspects of it, where you actually have to learn the biographies of the men of Hadith. And in
particular, those of course, who narrated and of course, those who compiled these books.
So inshallah Tada. Today, we're going to look at the biographies of
And then Allah Muslim
and then Allah ma'am Abu Dawood.
As for his birth, he was born in the year 194 after Hydra
and he was born in Alba hora
hora, his present day was Pakistan.
And he was born as a non Arab. He's awesome, right?
But look what he achieved in Arabic, Allahu Akbar. He was on an Arab and liberal Muslim also was an Arab. And remember when there was a non Arab and Alabama Timothy was an Arab and many others, but look what they achieved in Arabic. In other words, this Deen isn't just for the Arabs, but rather, they attained and they achieved a lot. And as the saying goes, those on top of mountains today, it didn't come from the heavens labors. Where were they? They were in the dirt yesterday, true, everyone starts on the bottom. So you have to start somewhere as I was telling one of the brothers earlier you start somewhere and then eventually you get to the top but it took a lot of hard work
and look what they achieved a lot. horsecar amazing.
Now as for his full name, it was Muhammad, even who knows
is mine. Alba hari hamady businessman, married alcoholic was his full name
and he was born blind.
But despite that his mother never lost sight, pun intended, of the one who could cure her son.
So she may draw upon upon da when you make dua with a sincere intention, and your heart is prison, a low respond as a chef Abdul Aziz Ansari few eloquently said, a thorough dryness in a certain Mr. Clean Mama delicato Minami la lune. The most common draw of the Muslims today is Guide us to the straight path yet most of them go astray. Why? Because there's no huddle, there is no presence of the heart. He said, Hold on, well, beyond the shadow Lily jabber, the presence of the heart is a condition for it to be accepted. So that's a condition. So she had of course, you can imagine the mother or those were fathers, you can relate to that your kids when they get hurt, you'd rather you
get hurt 10 times over than for them to even have a scratch. So you'd rather happen to you then to your child, so she may draw upon that and a larger region, blessed him with eyesight.
And what did you do after that? She took him from Uzbekistan, to Mecca, and she traveled as a widow. So to make matters worse, her husband died and Buhari was orphaned. He was an orphan on top of that calamities and calamities,
and she took him from Uzbekistan, she didn't just sit there feel sorry for herself and she made the best out of a bad situation she took it from Uzbekistan to Mecca why so he can receive an Islamic education and from Pakistan to Mecca was difficult. She didn't have an SUV for driving the desert Camelback and not five star hotel on the way know she had to say in a 10 and on the whales very difficult. But Lord will look at a sacrifice because the bigger your sacrifice the bigger the reward Look what she got a scholar as a child sometimes parents say you know what medical treatment is too far or you know unity grandma she's too far 20 minutes I'm too busy as apparently now I've got stuff
to do. Well she traveled from was Pakistan to Mecca alone.
So as far as travel, the knowledge that's where we can start in Mecca.
So she used to go to Mecca.
Of course for some but also for hedge and a time shoot completer How do you want to go back? And when she would do that? And Buhari what would you do? Please take me home mom. No, leave me here. Ma'am. Let me stay in Mecca, you go catch up with you later.
So when should perform, how do you want it to go back to Pokhara it wants to stay there. So of course his travels and knowledge began with his mother.
And that's the first Institute in school. And all madrasa is added to added the sharpened boy, even the woman is the school, the institution prepare her well, he's prepared a great people. So therefore it started with the mother at home, there is no better school than a righteous home. And there's no better teacher than a virtuous parent. A lot of people they complain about the school, or the masjid or the markers or the private college. Now you should start in the home happy. And he finished his elementary studies at 11. In other words, that's when he finished school when he was 11 years old, that 20 finished. And that's when he started serious Hadith. And he's always learning
before that, but he really started serious at 11. And that's when he corrected his shake one day in class. He basically narrated the Hadith with the metal and the Senate, of course, it's heavy duty. And he said No, impossible there, those two people in that chain of narration could have met. Why? Because they lived in two different lands two different time periods. He goes, No, no, what do you know, you're just 11 year old child. He says I insist. So he shaved check this information. And he realized that it was right. And whenever al Bukhari would be in his classes, he'd get nervous when he would narrate. He said, we get nervous when you're on the road because it was 11 years old.
That's when he showed signs and the first signs of greatness. Amazing. Within six years, he was a scholar. Already. He had basically taken everything he could from his hometown bajada By that time, and he said he had over 1000 machines,
over 1000 teachers.
To be precise, he had 1080 at 1080 mushiya, at 17 years of age alone.
And by that time, he had memorized so many a hadith and the chains. And not just that he had memorized the dates and birth places of the men in that chain. When they were born, where they were born, when they died, who they met where they're reliable. Are they trustworthy? where their lies that's difficult because sometimes one Hadid has seven or eight names, and the name is difficult. We're learning just four or five of them how to defend and perhaps we've already forgotten what we mentioned last week, when was
difficult. He memorized the metal and the senate notice that when every nereda was born, when they lived where they lived when they died everything Allahu Akbar amazing by 16 or 17 usually kids students they finish school at 18 they haven't memorized one Hadith, one hit memorize 1000s by them. And a teenager finishes school you know you 12 as a memorize one Hadith one, maybe you memorize a method or two, by Give me the chain, say howdy through main chain and the text.
Then he stayed in a buffalo
and the buffalo is present day Iraq. Kufa also for four or five years.
And then he went to, and he does.
Almudena Of course, where he said,
At night, I would go
looking for a place to write down and basically revise my notes. There was no way to go because of course, it was dark and he had needed life. So he said, I'd go to the grave of the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem, and I'll sit there next to his grave and record and revise my notes. But because he's trying to get the Baraka, No, we didn't believe in that stuff. But because there was light there. So it's the next to the grave of the profile is too slim.
And he went to Baghdad.
And that's where he met the illustrious alumni.
I thought he was one of his teachers. Once again, we can see that these great men walls, students of each other. He said I saw him a madman when they're running with your shoes in Baghdad, where was he running to? To catch the next movie? No, the catch the next halaqaat gathering of knowledge is also running with issues. are you how are you going along? So he actually saw him and all of his travel and knowledge was for four decades. Now let's look at his actual so he
How did he compile it? And what's included? First and foremost? What was it called?
l jam. Asahi? l must not
drink cola Sahil Buhari, Allah azza wa jal change the after his death. Now it's known as Sahih al Bukhari Allah placed the name so he authentic next to his name out of honoring out of to Sharif and totally amazing look at these great men they left such a legacy behind and due to the loss they pure sincere intention allows or bless
They works and bless their books after them. Everyone knows that so he helped Buhari, but he didn't call it that.
Now, why did he compile this book at a jam? So he must not and matassa
Why did you compile it two reasons. Number one from dreams he had. And number two from a casual remark from me shake
as always dreams or at least to one day he saw a dream.
When he was defending Russel Wallace was defending him and his honor. He had another dream, where he said everyone was standing around the profit on his right on his left ahead of him, and I was walking behind the profile, he sort of slumped in his footsteps. So those were his dreams. He dreamed about the Prophet Allah. These men you've noticed also the self they did dream about us a lot a lot as well wasn't just a Buhari, but a lot of them. Why? Because they thought of us.
Today, many people would have dreamed about, they dream about the dream car, or the dream house or the dream girl, because they're always thinking about it.
But they used to dream of Rasulullah a lot because you think about him a lot. So he had dreams of rosalba. One day, he she casually remarked in class, you know what the shape is half.
Even though Hawaii,
a great scholar who had this was also the shape of a Muslim, which we're going to take in a moment, he made a casual remark in class, he said, I wish if only one of you guys is talking to students, if only one of you students, one of them had this in here, and had 1000s of students would compile a book of Hadith that only contain genuine narrations isn't only that stuck in his mind along with the dream couple together, he couldn't let it go. And from then on, he started compiling his amazing masterpiece, which is known today. So he had a behind it. It took him 16 years to compile.
16 years, this was overnight. This amazing work took a lot of effort. 16 years.
As we said, This hacker but I had masses of students. All it took was a casual remark. So I'll make a casual mock right now. If only one of you brothers and Sharla can be the next behati.
That's it. One of the brothers gets up and leaves
the first step in the wrong direction.
So when you are sincere, my dear brothers, Allah will honor you in this world before the next. Now this so he had, he said I'd memorize 600,000 to 700,000 Hadith with vitrines.
600, not 6000 not 600 600,000 to 700,000 a hadith with their chains. And he said I sifted through each one. And I narrowed it down to 7563. That's what Sahil Buhari has today. How many 100
so he saw he has 7563 he sifted through his own personal library 600,000 100. And he got it down to that number. He said, I've could have had more. But he said he just wanted the cream of the crop the best of the best. And he wanted me. So what does
that mean summary in Arabic, this all
to make something concise. So he said I could have made it more.
Maybe there's others which are abridged, even shorter, without the repetitions without the repetitions around 2500.
Before he wrote down any narration, he would pray is the hall is the hall.
And one of you so he would pray he prayed at least 7500 times his decoder. And once one of his companions said, I saw the Bahati get up around 18 times in one night, just to edit his works 18 times in one night. So that was a bare minimum, you can double triple that number in terms of how many times you practice the call.
At best we've previously had a twice one for our house at once for the wife, right? Which has money to get and which wife
which spouse and which house right? Twice. He prayed over fit 7500 times. Now
was this man heavily criticized? He sure was they think he wasn't without criticism. No. He was criticized and he was tested because haters are gonna hate when people see you with blessings and you have further knowledge. People are gonna hate me for how knowledgeable you are. There's haters out there a lot worse than that.
In some of these tests,
there were many. Let's start with the first test in Baghdad.
10 men heard of this man on Buhari who had memorized 600,000 Hadith again, no way. This can't be true. 10 of them conspired, I said, You know what, let's go sit in one of his lessons and asked him afterwards, some well known ahadeeth and we're going to mix up every single chain. So each man how many of them were with it? 10 and each man came with 10 ahaadeeth. So 10 times 10 100 100 101 100 chains, they mix them all up. So the first one stood up, and he said, Yeah, ma'am, have you heard of this hadith and you mentioned the Hadith and the chain but it was all mixed up. 100 he said never heard of it. What about this hadith you mentioned? Never heard of, or at least have you mentioned
all 10 and Buhari said never heard any single one of them. People are freaking out How can you not know these are Hadees they will known like in MLM Albania for example. Next person stands up another 10 never heard any single one of them. Next person stand up. He says he's 10 never heard any of them. Next person all 10 when they complete, basically 100 narrations I haven't heard a single one of them. I don't know them. These are what I know. And he narrated every single Hadith that they mentioned. With the exact order of change in duration. He fixed the roll up for them. This is what I know. That's why so panela amazing. So that was the first test in Baghdad.
The tests got harder later in summer can't.
This time 400 not 10 students 400 students put into the test. And he succeeded in exposing all of their plots and tricks 400 a lot.
He became extremely popular after that after people now rumors spread. This guy's amazing. No one can basically faulted this guy.
He became extremely popular. And when he went to Nisa board, which is the hometown of illuma Muslim, he had a grand reception. And there was a great Morehead death at the time there. Anyone know of his name?
He was a hater.
And none of you heard of him because it's what allows us to the haters. People who are insincere people doing it for showing off people doing it for fame and fortune, as though Howdy. This man I remember. It was a great muhaddith he was teaching like I remember Buhari. I remember though Halle he heard about Buhari coming to his town so he told the students go and learn under Buhari right. However the people would say her that Buhari What did they do? They lifted locally they became addicted who wouldn't. So they left that normally. That's when he started to hate on him. He started to hate on Buhari and he spread rumors about him. He basically spread rumors that Buhari claims that
the Quran is created the fitna of Allah Muhammad, and we said Buhari so Allah Mohammed, so that fitna extended into the time of Allah Mohammed. And by the way, you asked me last week did extend into a share face time now he had died before the fitness strike. I checked up the dates. So he was basically also accused of Khufu so one day is asked this question, what do you say but the Quran is a created, he said, the voice that you recite with is created but not the words, which is true your voice your vocal cords, your larynx or your voice box is not created? It is. But the most half the words of Allah are not. So what did they do? They took the first part, they edited it, and they ran
with it. They looked at the second part. So people do today, one hour lecture, they'll take out a two minute snippet and they'll put on YouTube or we expose the shift right? or PDF refutation. Right, it happens even to today. So basically, you had those people same mentality back then. He was accused of coup for my brother's alcohol. He was accused of COVID Yes, he was also accused of not even being able to pray.
One loser said and before we don't even know how to pray. He said but I love that man was to come here right now. I'll give him 10,000 a hadith on prayer alone right now.
Of course, he didn't dare show his face. Just the prey. Not everything else, like the other animals, and Waldo and bahara. Just a solid. I'll give you 10,000 ahaadeeth right now. Amazing. So he had haters, aloha Mustang. But eventually people forgot the haters and ever remember that Buhari.
And at times, he would enter a town with a huge grand reception so many people and he will leave with no one. Because of course the people there they started to spread rumors. And I was mentioned when he died. There's approximately two or three people who buried him that was it.
And by the way, Mohamed, we had 600,000 people to two and a half million at his graveyard. at his funeral. We had around two to three people buried. But perhaps Lazarus did that to protect these laws to protect his heart. Look what happened after he died. Amazing. So those were some of the tests he faced.
As for his taqwa. He once made a drop. After all these rumors were being spread around him. After all these rumors were being spread about him. His students said I was there and I was listening
All before I make this to our own design of a law you know they are saying this because of jealousy, you know, they are only saying this out of hatred, out of envy. He's also waiting for Buhari to make draw against them. But that never came. taqwa. Because these are his brothers at the end of the day, his Muslim Brothers amazing. He didn't have this in a hatred
and animosity in his heart, because your heart is too valuable for hatred, animosity to rent a spot. True, keep it up.
And he even said one day, Allah will not punish me on the Day of Judgment for backbiting.
How can you say that? Yeah, Imam, how can you have the confidence to say that? He said, because of the way he would deem people unreliable, he wouldn't say he's a liar. He will say his trustworthiness, his truthfulness is questionable. That is it. his credibility is questionable. That's all I had to say. If somebody said your truthfulness is questionable. That is a you're definitely questionable. So that's all he had to say. But that was out of his taqwa like today What do people do? Yeah cuz they're not go there because they're with the shut that indicates something which is perpetual and first and Mona effect right with we've seen this recently brothers in the UK
these people I'm whenever you're calling these are before you do this, you're a cafeteria, you're a cabinet making tech field. And he straight out the field. Not even giving the brothers excuses. Alcohol, he wouldn't even do that. You say he's truthfulness is questionable. That was all the only basically you'd have to say to for people to put doubt about that person.
Evil khuzaima said he also authored a book of authentic narrations. He's I've never seen anyone beneath the canopy of the heaven, who has more knowledge of the hadith of Rasulullah than Buhari
in Jaffa said, and this quote sums up what Buhari was an India if I was able to take moments from my life and give it to Allah Buhari, I would have done so. Because when I died, even Java was a great scholar. If I die, a little bit of knowledge is buried with me. But when I'm Buhari died,
a lot of knowledge was buried. If I was able to take from my life and granted to him I would have done so.
And of course, Albert Hall, he wrote many books and he's famous is a German. So he he also a 32 bit and a double muffler, which are also great books there. One is on history, and one is on manners. He died in the year 256 after hinges on the eve of April.
But what he would have one of the great scholars of his time, and his name has eluded me at the moment, but it's an authentic narration. He said I had a dream that I saw the Prophet Muhammad, once again is the dream a lot of Rasul Allah. I saw the Prophet Mohammed and he was waiting there. He said, yo Sula, who you waiting for he said, we're waiting for Mohammed the businessman and body work up and I was given the news that day that alcoholic passed away.
So sorry drained little soul was waiting for him. He said he died that very day, allows you to have mercy upon him and all the scholars. Let's go on to mention Ellie my Muslim now.
It was born 10 to 12 years after alcoholic now what do we say 10 to 12 years because there's a difference of opinion when he was born.
When was that Buhari born 194. So I remember Muslim
to I thought I sent some said to a six after hidden as a difference of opinion.
And both opinions have the evidences. Therefore he was 10 to 12 years younger than Buhari and that's why he actually studied under Buhari for a little bit. His full name was Muslim, April Hajaj and they suburi and he had a cornea by the name of Abu Hussein.
his actual name was Muslim.
Now we also said he was a non Arab also.
And we said his Kenya was a bully Hussein.
Now as we said his name was actually Muslim. And is this allowed? Yes, no problem. You can name your child Muslim and men and so forth. And it basically means the submitter, so it's no problem. And naming your children has a great psychological effect on them. So be careful what you name them. Don't just open up the Mazel Tov and point your finger anywhere. So I'm going to name my child with my finger lens. What if the lens only blease
happens once I brother was called shutter barrier, the worst of creation? My brother met him. What's your brother? Shara Shara Shara Berry. Yeah.
Well, I guess you have to change your name. Not allowed the worst of creation. Yeah, what if it landed on Friday.
What if he landed on radon? What if he landed on Allah you're going to name her talk Allah out of the villa.
And as some people do, especially from the subcontinent happens a lot. They do that. Not a lot. Maybe some of the Arab as well.
Anyway, you can name your child Muslim, have a choose nice positive name for your children. Once a man came to Yamaha pub and he complained, he said, Jamar, yeah ameerul momineen. My son is disrespectful to me. He gets pretty sure Let me speak to him call him over. So the main cause his son, he said, Yeah, Hazara Kamiya Iboga insect Kamiya, what would you call him? He repeated the name bug. He gets you called your son above. His real name was like a beetle, a type of beetle.
He called him a beetle. He goes, of course, he's gonna disrespect you because you disrespected him first. Like give your child a name by the name of a bug or baby
What about his physical description? Now, why are we mentioning this one we didn't mention for others two reasons.
He had a unique physical appearance. And number two, it was mentioned and recorded in the books whereas the earlier ones that we mentioned, not really not as much. Now those four things notable about his appearance.
Number one, he had white hair at a young age. So he started to go gray early on. So by the time he you know, became this great scholar, it was already hold us fully white, and that's a sign of nobility and honor. And it's a sign of wisdom to have gray hair. In fact, there's a hadith about honoring a person with white gray hair is like honoring Allah, authentic hadith.
In the mean age, the light either a climate the shape of the Muslim profile is what Muslim said, honoring Allah azza wa jal is by honoring a person with gray white hair. You see an old man, you should kiss him on the forehead, honor him. You see a person come into the rooms all know where to sit, you give him your seat in them. angelelli lay to Allah ikoma the Shabbat in Muslim this hadith is authentic. She had white hair. He also had a big white fluffy beard.
So it was unique.
And he had an amazing posture. His back was always straight. At the sign of dignity respect whenever he would sit you will see with Ani wouldn't slouch.
It wouldn't, you know, look like he was slacking off or lazy. But he had this amazing straight back always
an amazing posture about him.
And he always wore a turban
with a long tail that hung at the back
this turban that he will always had a long tail that would hang between his two shoulder blades just like the Prophet alayhi salatu salam had in the book of Alabama Timothy shimelle mohammedia
shimelle Mohammed is a book by lm mo Timothy and he mentioned this basically the physical attributes of Rasulullah he used to wear these turban with also a long tail that would hang between his shoulders and why they would do that they this tail was useful basically whenever there was a sandstorm they would use it for facial protection to cover the eyes or the mouth, etc. So that's among the purposes of having that long tail, but also looks in a hectic, that's another purpose.
As far as job,
occupation can act on.
Now the word a thought comes from an adult, which means perfume. But it can also mean a man or a person who sells spices and condiments, nuts, things like that. So that's how I thought. So that's what I used to do for a living is to sell nuts and spices. And it was mentioned every time he would be at work, he would narrate a hadith to his customers. And he was criticized because of that. And it should be in writing in the most if not at work, but he still loved the rasuwa. So he basically he's a killer Foster and Hades to go right?
So he would always narrate at work amazing. Imagine having going down to the local Abrahamic stories lmm Muslim, they're selling stuff. Right? Shouldn't be working should be narrating by shows you that these men were honorable. They didn't want to just big of people. They would actually only have an honorable lifestyle. They would earn a living so they wouldn't have to ask the people.
As for his knowledge and teachers.
He traveled to Persia while he was in Persia, really to start they said board
as we said it was not Arab and Iraq, of course, Syria,
And you notice they all went to similar places. That's where the knowledge was Albus law school for law must be led to Sham
and his teaching
COVID many but among them at the moment
and who else?
Buhari assent and who was
the governor Buhari? Who was it?
raw Hawaii. Yeah. No, these names, names of giants is half the battle of Hawaii.
And yeah, you can also
imagine having that on your CV, who are your teachers and Mr. Mohammed that Buhari is hackable away and your name is le Muslim.
That's enough just having your name as a Muslim. But look at his Look at his background.
he shaves praised him highly his own teacher and when your teacher praises you, that's a sign of greatness. He shave, who is Mohammed Ibn Bashar also known as Bandar, Muhammad,
even Bashar he said the fowl of the world for this entire planet, there are for her fault. There's Abu Salah in our right.
This, Abdullah daddy me
Mohammed, the businessman, who was al Bukhari, and then as a Muslim,
Today, the father of the planet, he's one of them.
And Salomon, I suppose he said, I saw a bizarre, another great scholar and I've had him giving precedence priority to Anima Muslim over the own shape, basically saying he's got more knowledge than my shape. Usually people when it comes to their own machines, right? They wouldn't dare put anyone on top, but they will honest, they will lie they will succeed. Usually people rock my ship, he's the bomb. Why don't you dare talk about him right? Or those will expose you on Facebook? I tell people Oh, they've got that pride and honor about this chief but they had they had they were truthful there that was sincere. This is not a Muslim. They gave him preference over the NCAA
basically a low workload.
And as for his book compared to alcohol is now they were both being compiled almost at the same time. Same time is only 10 years younger than him. And when they finally kicked out and Buhari from his lessons and the town What is the name a Muslim? Do you want me to disrespect my shift like that?
He lived at the very, very last and Buhari Anima Muslim you can imagine how much you feel after that also shows that the Muslims are close why because he would have said you know what I'm gonna stay here and get something that'll Buhari doesn't have right he's gone now. Good. I'll get one on top of him wasn't like that. But no, that's how they honored the machine some of this respect your shares. You stand up for him not be a pushover. Let people talk about your share for slander Yoshi, as among the lessons we can learn from the life of element Muslim. As for his so he mentioned India.
And Mr. Muslim examined a third of a million ahadeeth a third of a million Allahu Akbar
which he selected finally around 4000 for his site, so Sahih Muslim now has around 4000 that's how much you selected.
Which the scholars of Hadith unanimously agreed are authentic, every single one of them
4000 now of course doesn't mean what you find in a body and what you find in Muslim is the only authentic hadith No, there's others, but they narrowed it down I just gave you a concise version. So from a third of a million, he narrowed it down to 4000.
In terms of which is better difference of opinion however, it seems as Buhari is on top However, in terms of arrangement and order and structure
Anima Muslims book is on top. So in terms of order and structure, the way he arranged it, it seems, Mr. Muslim Yani did a better job according to many opinions. And this seems to be correct. However, overall, overall Alamo Muslim Imam Al Bukhari his book is better.
will love to Allah. Finally his death to 61 after digital Allah, Allah have mercy upon him. Amen.
Did you mention insurance?
among the students were, I remember Timothy, who was also known as Abu Raisa
and even hoceima.
Yeah, he had many buddies were prominent that we know right, even hoceima and Timothy
the others is Abu Hatem, a rosy but not as well known, unfortunately, unless the those who research ahaadeeth Hatem is the
Very known and a well known scholar of Hadith amongst them Hadith in themselves, as for Imam Abu Dawood,
who was born in the 202 after Hendra. So what I'll do, I'll just narrate this to so we can split it up. Birth of Allah Buddha would.
He was born to or to after his role
in surgery Stan which is in Lausanne.
His full name was Sulaiman.
A surgeon standing
because he was from Santa Stan which is in Lausanne.
There is something interesting about his name, Abu Dawood, Suleiman,
the two prophets yesterday man, they would, whereas it was Abu Sulayman they would, they would,
Ali Salam was the father of Solomon, but it was switched here. So the prophets were there would Abu Sulayman but he's a Buddha with Solomon opposite. Interesting. And with him.
He of course, he's the author of sunan Abu Dawood, which is among a kotoba sitter, what are akuto Sita? Yeah, the six books of Hadith by Al Bukhari Muslim, a Buddha would say, maybe
even measure the six books of Hadith when you hear alkota boo Sita, the six books, the books of or the book of Allah Buhari, which is so he had Bukhari, Sahih Muslim. Sona bedeviled Sunni, Timothy, imagine an essay.
As always traveled and knowledge. Once again, he finished school and around 10 that's the norm back then. Not like today, you finish school 18.
