Description from the publisher:
This book presents an extensive, in-depth analysis of the great muhaddithun, the scholars of the science of hadith. Each chapter presents detailed biographies of Malik ibn Anas, Ibn Hanbal, al Bukhari, Muslim, at-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood, an-Nasa'I, Ibn Majah, ad-Darimi and al-Bayhaqi along with the methods they used in hadith collection and classification.
This work is especially important in today's world where many Muslims have a dire need to connect with the great corpus of work that was produced by the scholars of traditional Islam. A work such as this has long been overdue in the English language and it will certainly make for productive reading for all interested in deepening their knowledge of Islam.
