What does it mean when we say (a
hadeeth/report was) “narrated by
the two Shaykhs”? Who are they?


Praise be to Allah
What is meant by “the two Shaykhs”
is al-Imam al-Bukhari and al-Imam
Muslim (may Allah have mercy on
Al-Bukhari is Muhammad ibn
Isma’eel al-Bukhari (d. 256 AH). He
wrote a book, Saheeh al-Bukhari, in
which he compiled a number of
saheeh ahadeeth (authentic
prophetic traditions) from our
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him).
Muslim is Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj al-
Nisaboori (d. 261 AH). He is the
author of Saheeh Muslim. These two
books – Saheeh al-Bukaari and
Saheeh Muslim – are the soundest
books of ahadeeth from our Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him).

If it is said of a hadeeth (prophetic
narration) that it was “narrated by
the two Shaykhs”, what is meant is
that it was narrated by al-Bukhari
and Muslim in their Saheehs. The
same applies if it says “agreed
upon,” i.e., al-Bukhari and Muslim
both agreed on its narration.
Al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy
on him) said in the introduction to
Sharh Muslim (1/14): The scholars
(may Allah have mercy on them) are
agreed that the soundest of books
after the Holy Quran are al-
Saheehayn, i.e., the two Saheehs of
al-Bukhari and Muslim, and the
ummah (global Muslim community)
accepted that from them. The book
of al-Bukhari is the sounder and
more useful of the two. End quote.
And Allah knows best.
