In Bulūgh al-Marām, Ibn Ḥajar [d.852H] naturally mentions the narrators after each ḥadīth, but some are in “abbreviated form.” Not wishing to detain the reader longer than I should, here are the keys to these technical usages:
  • Related by as-Sab’ah (the seven): he means the authors of the six books, “al-Bukhārī, Muslim, at-Tirmithī, Abū Dāwūd, an-Nasā’ī, Ibn Mājah,” including Imām Aḥmad in his Musnad.

  • Related by as-Sittah (the six): he means the preceding authors, “al-Bukhārī, Muslim, at-Tirmithī, Abū Dāwūd, an-Nasā’ī and Ibn Mājah.”

  • Related by al-Khamsah (the five): he means the compilers of the four Sunan, “at-Tirmithī, Abū Dāwūd, an-Nasā’ī, and Ibn Mājah,” including Aḥmad.

  • Related by al-‘Arba’ah (the four): he means the compilers of the Sunan, “at-Tirmithī, Abū Dāwūd, an-Nasā’ī, and Ibn Mājah.”

  • Related by ath-Thalāthah (the three): he means the compilers of the Sunan minus Ibn Mājah.

  • Mutafaqun ‘alayhi (agreed upon): al-Bukhārī and Muslim.
