Muslims believe that Sahih Muslim is the most authentic book of hadeeth after Sahih Al-Bukhari. The Muslim Scholars have agreed that all of the hadeeth in Sahih Muslim are authentic. Thus, Darussalam realized the great benefit of publishing Al-Hafiz Al-Mundhiri's summarized version of Sahih Muslim in the English language. Much care has been taken in rendering these hadeeth into a clear and simple style of modern English. Summarized Sahih Muslim
contains 2,179 hadeeth with 70 categories (referred as books). Both volumes combined contain 1,208 pages with index and appendix.

The author has summarized this book from the Sahih of Al-Imam AbulHusain Muslim bin Al-Hajjaj Al-Qushairi An-Naisaburi. It is a summation that makes memorization easy for those who wish to memorize it. It also makes things easier for the one who wants to investigate or look into the Sahih. I organized it in a way that will help the one who is looking for something specific to find it faster. With its small size it contains a great portion of the intended information from the original Sahih.Publishers Note
