Points of Benefit That Relate to the Aḥādīth of the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam)

  Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz al-Rājiḥī

The four sunan (Abū Dāwūd, Al-Tirmidhī, Al-Nasāʿī, and Ibn Majah), the musnad of Imām Aḥmad, and the sunan of Al-Dārimī, all contain aḥādīth that are ṣaḥīḥ (authentic), ḥasan (good), and ḍaʿīf (weak). For they did not make it a condition for their books to contain only the aḥādīth that are ṣaḥīḥ as Al-Bukhārī and Muslim did. Rather, their intent was to gather all the aḥādīth as they relate to a particular matter. Similarly are those others, such the musnad of al-Taylasī and the three maʿajim of Al-Tabarānī. As for the muwaṭṭaʾ of Imām Mālik, it contains aḥādīth that are ṣaḥīḥ, ḥasan, and ḍaʿīf.
