As-Sunan as-Sughra (Arabic: السنن الصغرى‎), also known as Sunan an-Nasa'i (Arabic: سنن النسائي‎), is one of the Kutub al-Sittah (six major hadiths), and was collected by Al-Nasa'i.[1]


Sunnis regard this collection as the third most important of their six major Hadith collections.[2] Al-Mujtaba (English: the selected) has about 5,270 hadiths, including repeated narrations, which the author selected from his larger work, As-Sunan al-Kubra.


Among those who have written commentaries on this hadith collection are:

  • Imam al-Suyuti: Published under the name Sharh al-Suyuti 'ala Sunan al-Nisa'i by Maktabah al-Matbou'at in Aleppo in 1986.
  • al-Sindi: Published under the name Hashiyat al-Sindi 'ala al-Nisa'i by Maktabah al-Matbou'at in Aleppo in 1986.
