Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī (Arabic: صحيح البخاري), is one of the Al-Kutub al-Sittah (six major hadiths) of Sunni Islam. These prophetic traditions, or hadith, were collected by the Persian Muslim scholar Muhammad al-Bukhari, after being transmitted orally for generations. Sunni Muslims view this as one of the three most trusted collections of hadith along with Sahih Muslim and Muwatta Imam Malik. In some circles, it is considered the mostauthentic book after the Quran. The Arabic word sahih translates as authentic or correct.
