Bukhārī, (Abū {ʽ}Abd Allāh Muḥammad ibn Ismā{ʽ}īl) al-

born July 19, 810, Bukhara, Central Asia
died Aug. 31, 870, Khartank, near Samarkand

Muslim compiler and scholar of Hadīth.

He began his study as a child in Central Asia and traveled as far as Mecca and Cairo to learn about Muhammad and his utterances. Of the 600,000 traditions he collected, he deemed 7,275 authentic and included them in Kitāb al-jāmiʽ al-ṣaḥīḥ ("Entirety of the Genuine"). His Kitāb al-taʾrīkh al-kabīr ("The Great History") contains biographies of those who passed on the oral traditions from the days of the Prophet to Bukhārī's own era.
