Abu Bakr ibn Muhammad ibn Hazm (Arabic: أبو بكر بن محمد بن حزم‎‎) (died 120/737) was an 8th-century Sunni Islamic scholar based in Madinah.[1]

He is among those who compiled hadiths at Umar II’s behest.[2] Umar asked him to write down all the hadiths he could learn in Madinah from 'Amra bint 'Abd al-Rahman, who was at the time the most respected scholar of hadiths narrated by Aisha.[3]
