Abu Abdillah Muhammad ibn Ishaq ibn Khuzaymah (Arabic: أبو بكر محمد بن إسحاق بن خزيمة‎, 837 CE/223 AH[1] – 923 CE/311 AH[1]) was a prominent Muslim hadith and Shafi'i fiqh scholar best known for his hadith collection, Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah.

Biography[edit]

He was born in Nishapur a year earlier than Ibn Jarir al-Tabari and outlived him by one year. In Nishapur, he studied under its scholars, including Ishaq Ibn Rahwayh (died 238 AH), the muhaddith of Khorasan at the time.[1]

Works[edit]

Al-Hakim recorded that Ibn Khuzaymah wrote more than 140 books.[1] Little of what he wrote survives today:[1]

  • Ṣaḥīḥ Ibn Khuzaymah : mukhtaṣar al-Mukhtaṣar min al-musnad al-Ṣaḥīḥ (صحيح بن خزيمة : مختصر المختصر من المسند الصحيح): Only one fourth of the book survived.
  • Kitāb al-Tawḥīd wa-ithbāt ṣifāt al-Rabb ʻazza wa-jall (کتاب التوحيد وإثبات صفات الرب عز وجل): "The Book of the Affirmation of Divine Unity and the Affirmation of the Attributes of the Lord"
  • Shaʼn al-duʻāʼ wa-tafsīr al-adʻīyah al-maʼthūrah (شأن الدعاء وتفسير الأدعية المأثورة)
