Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī (Arabic: صحيح البخاري ), also known as Bukhari Sharif (Arabic : بخاري شريف ), is one of the Kutub al-Sittah (six major hadith collections) of Sunni Islam. These prophetic traditions, or hadith, were collected by the Muslim scholar Muhammad al-Bukhari, after In reply to Western academic doubts as to the actual date and authorship of.
Unlike the Qur'an, ahadith were not promptly written down during Muhammad's life or immediately after his death.
Well-known, widely accepted Hadiths make up the narrow inner layer, with ahadith becoming less reliable and accepted with each layer stretching outward. Some important elements, which are today taken to be a long-held part of Islamic practice and belief are not mentioned in the Qur'an at all, but are derived solely from the hadith. Quranists, on the contrary, hold that if the Qur'an is silent on some matter, it is because Allah did not hold its detail to be of consequence; and that some ahadith contradict the Qur'an, evidence that some ahadith are a source of corruption and not a compliment to the Quran.

A classical example is salat the five daily prayers of Islamwhich is commanded in the Qur'an, and considered by all Muslims to be an obligatory part of Islamic religious practice -- one of the five pillars of Islam.
Details of prescribed movements and words of the prayer known as rakat and how many times they are to be performed, are found in ahadith, demonstrating to Hadithists that ahadith "validly" fulfill the Qur'anic command of ritual prayer.
However, ahadith differ on these details and consequently salat is performed differently by different hadithist Islamic sects. Quranists, for their part, believe if Allah thought the details of salat to be consequence, would have included them in the Quran and that the details of salat are a matter between each individual Muslim and Allah, with correctly performed salat depending on a correct intention to perform the prayers, valid however it may be individually performed.
Comparative importance of ahadith Among most hadithists, the importance of ahadith is secondary to Qur'an given that, at least in theory, an Islamic conflict of laws doctrine holds Qur'anic supremacy above ahadith in developing Islamic jurisprudence.
A smaller minority have upheld ahadith in contradiction to the Qur'an, thereby placing ahadith above Qur'an and claiming that contradictory ahadith abrogate the parts of the Qur'an where they conflict. The hadith were used in forming the basis of Sharia the religious law system forming part of the Islamic traditionand fiqh Islamic jurisprudence. The hadith are at the root of why there is no single fiqh system, but rather a collection of parallel systems within Islam.
Much of early Islamic history available today is also based on the hadith, although it has been challenged for its lack of basis in primary source material and the internal contradictions of the secondary material available. Allah — or hadith sharif noble hadithwhich are Muhammad's own utterances.

My mercy prevails over My wrath. At least half of Muslims in all the countries surveyed in sub-Saharan Africa accept that personal morality is based on belief in God. In many countries, Muslims who pray several times a day are more likely than those who pray less often to say it is necessary to believe in God to be moral. On this question, there are no consistent differences by age or gender across the countries surveyed. Beliefs About Morality The survey asked Muslims around the world if they considered a range of behaviors to be morally wrong, morally acceptable or not a moral issue.
The survey finds that most Muslims agree that certain behaviors — such as drinking alcohol, suicide and sex outside marriage — are morally wrong.
However, significant minorities of Muslims in some countries consider such behaviors morally acceptable or say they are not a moral issue. Drinking alcohol Most Muslims surveyed say that drinking alcohol is morally wrong. In addition, in some countries sizable percentages say consuming alcohol is not a moral issue. Suicide and Euthanasia Majorities of Muslims in all countries believe that suicide is morally wrong, including three-quarters or more in 29 of the 37 countries where this question was asked.
In only four of the countries where this question was asked do as many as one-in-ten Muslims say suicide is morally acceptable. All four countries are in sub-Saharan Africa: In 13 countries, at least one-in-ten Muslims do not consider suicide to be a moral issue.

Substantial minorities, however, do not define euthanasia as a moral issue. Additionally, in six countries, one-in-ten or more volunteer that the moral status of euthanasia depends on the context in which it occurs: Abortion Most Muslims say that having an abortion is morally wrong, including three-quarters or more in 24 of the 37 countries where the question was asked.

Amin Ahsan Islahithe Islamic scholarhas listed three outstanding qualities of Sahih al-Bukhari: Muhammad al-Bukhari has followed two principal criteria for selecting sound narratives. First, the lifetime of a narrator should overlap with the lifetime of the authority from whom he narrates.
Second, it should be verifiable that narrators have met with their source persons. They should also expressly state that they obtained the narrative from these authorities. This is a stricter criterion than that set by Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj. Muhammad al-Bukhari accepted the narratives from only those who, according to his knowledge, not only believed in Islam but practiced its teachings.
Thus, he has not accepted narratives from the Murjites. The particular arrangement and ordering of chapters. This expresses the profound knowledge of the author and his understanding of the religion.
