This book contains between 4434 or 5945 hadiths, divided in to 29 books and is considered by Sunni Scholars an important writing. Al Tabrizi added 1511 hadiths to the hadith contained in the collection Masabih al Sunnah. Al Baghawi (who had collected the hadith named by Masabih al Sunnah) classified many hadiths as authentic when at times Al Tabrizi didn't agree. Al Tabrizi expounded on the labels, he placed on the hadith and reclassified many of them. He added a third section to Misbah al Sunnah which was already divided in two parts by Al Baghawi. Al Baghawi did not mention Isnad of Hadiths he collected, Al Tabrizi mentions the sources from where the hadith is originally found making the text more reliable.
?Most of the Hadith are from the Sahih Sitta. (The Six Authentic Hadith Books).
