The Compiler of Sahih Muslim (Hadith Book)

The full name of Imam Muslim is Abul-Hussain Asakiruddin Muslim bin Hajjaj AlQushairi An-Naisaburi. He belonged to the Qushair tribe of the Arab clan Rabi'ah. He was born in 202 or 206 H (819 or 821 CE) in Nishapur, a town of Iran. His parents were religious people and so he was brought up in a pious environment. Because of this he spent all of his life as a pious and righteous person. A distinguishing attribute of his excellent character is that he never indulged in backbiting, which is a common human shortcoming.

Imam Muslim travelled far and wide to collect the Ahadith (traditions) in the countries of Arabia, Egypt, Iraq and Syria, and benefited from the prominent Hadith scholars of that time by attending the lectures and classes of those learned persons. Afterwards he settled down at Nishapur, where he came into contact with Imam Bukhari. Seeing the vast knowledge and deep insight of him in the Ahadith of the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, Imam Muslim remained attached with him until the end of his life. He also attended the lectures of another scholar of Hadith, Muhammad bin Yahya AdhDhuhli, but when the difference of opinion arose between Imam Bukhari and Muhammad bin Yahya on the issue of the creation of the Noble Qur'an, Imam Muslim favored Imam Bukhari and left the company of Muhammad bin Yahya.

Ma, I was so tired when I went to sleep,
And very soon I was in slumber so deep!
And you know, when I am in such a state,
Nothing disturbs me, not even my mate!

So, when the earth did its shake,
Any Notice of it I could not take!
But now, when I am questioned by my mummy,
I do recall what I thought was a rumble in the tummy.

The earth shook but we cannot be so sure,
Because only a few, its effects did endure!
So now we have to issue an apology in someone's name,
And find an organisation to take blame!
Dont worry, experts in this game we have really become,
And soon, the quake will be just another myth told by some!

To which the guide replies: "If they fell forward, they'd still be in the boat."
