Abu Bakr 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 (Arabic: صحيح بن خزيمة : مختصر المختصر من المسند الصحيح‎): Only one fourth of the book survived. It is a collection of hadiths, covering prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, and the zakāt tithe. Among the Sahih collections after Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, it is regarded highly along with Sahih Ibn Hibbaan and Sahih Abi 'Awana. It has been edited by Muhammad Mustafa Al-A'zami and published by al-Maktab al-Islami in Beirut.
  • Kitāb al-Tawḥīd wa-ithbāt ṣifāt al-Rabb ’azza wa-jall (Arabic: کتاب التوحيد وإثبات صفات الرب عز وجل‎, lit. "The Book of the Affirmation of Divine Unity and the Affirmation of the Attributes of the Lord") - OCLC 54295822 and 499842253
  • Sha’n al-du‘ā’ wa-tafsīr al-ad‘īyah al-ma’thūrah (Arabic: شأن الدعاء وتفسير الأدعية المأثورة‎)
