Al Bukhary and Muslim
Praise be to Allaah.
There follows a brief biography of these two great imams.
1 Imam al-Bukhaari (may Allaah have mercy on him)
He is the great imam, scholar, leader of the believers in hadeeth, Abu Abd-Allaah Muhammad ibn Ismaaeel ibn Ibraaheem al-Bukhaari. He was born in Bukhaara in Shawwaal of 194 AH, and grew up as orphan. He lost his sight as a child, then Allaah restored to him his sight. He memorized hadeeth as a child, and he was a prodigy in that, may Allaah have mercy on him.
The imams attested to his good memory, precision, knowledge, asceticism and worship. Imam Ahmad (may Allaah have mercy on him) said of him: Khorasan has never produced anyone like him.
Ibn Khuzaymah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: I have never seen anyone beneath the canopy of heaven who has more knowledge of the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and who has memorized more (hadeeth) than al-Bukhaari.
Al-Tirmidhi (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: I have never seen in Iraq or in Khorasan anyone with more knowledge of hadeeth criticism, history and isnaads than al-Bukhaari.
Al-Bukhaari had more than one thousand shaykhs whom he met in the countries and cities to which he travelled. Among them were: Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Hammaad ibn Shaakir, Makki ibn Ibraaheem and Abu Aasim al-Nabeel.
Among those who narrated from al-Bukhaari were:
Muslim ibn al-Hajjaaj the author of al-Saheeh; al-Tirmidhi; al-Nasaai; Muhammad ibn Nasr al-Marwazi; and many others.
Al-Bukhari wrote many books, the most famous of which are: al-Jaami al-Saheeh; al-Tareekh al-Kabeer; al-Adab al-Mufrad; Khalq Afaal al-Ibaad.
He died, may Allaah have mercy on him, on the night of Eid al-Fitr, 256 AH.
2 Imam Muslim (may Allaah have mercy on him)
He is the great imam, hafiz and scholar, Abul-Husayn, Muslim ibn al-Hajjaaj ibn Muslim al-Nisaboori. He was born in 204 AH, or it was said in 206 AH.
He devoted his time to hadeeth, and he travelled in search of hadeeth and strove hard in that field, until he became very prominent. His contemporaries attested to his virtues. His shaykh Muhammad ibn Bashshaar (Bandaar) said: The haafiz of this world are four: Abu Zarah in al-Ray, Muslim in Nisapur, Abd-Allaah al-Daarimi in Samarqand, and Muhammad ibn Ismaaeel in Bukhaara.
Ahmad ibn Salamah al-Nisaboori said: I saw Abu Zarah and Abu Haatim giving precedence to Muslim ibn al-Hajjaaj in knowledge of saheeh over the shaykhs of their time.
Ibn Abd al-Barr said of him: They were unanimously agreed on his eminence, leadership and high status. The greatest evidence of that is his book al-Saheeh; no book before it or after is as well organized or precise in the isnaads of its hadeeth.
His shaykhs included: Ahmad ibn Hanbal, al-Bukhaari, Yahya ibn Yahya al-Teemi, Ishaaq ibn Raahawayh, Yahya ibn Maeen, Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah and many others.
His students included: Abu Haatim al-Raazi, Abu Eesa al-Tirmidhi, Ibn Khuzaymah, Abu Awaanah al-Isfaraayeeni and Makki ibn Abdaan.
His well known books include: al-Jaami al-Saheeh; al-Kuna wal-Asma; al-Tabaqaat; al-Tamyeez; and al-Munfaridaat wal-Wahdaan.
He died, may Allaah have mercy on him, in Rajab 261 AH.

Al Bukhary and Muslim
His name is Muhammad Ibn Ismail Ibn Ibrahim Ibn al-Mughirah Ibn Bardizbah al-Bukhari
Early life (810-820)
Bukhari was born in July 20, 810 CE (Shawal 13, 194 AH ) in the city of Bukhara, in what is today Uzbekistan. His father, Ismail Ibn Ibrahim, was a known hadith scholar that died while Bukhari was young.
This means that he was born atleast 180 years after the death of Mohammad. Which makes me wonder about this actually.
Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than God; that which hath been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows: that is impiety. This day have those who reject faith given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me. This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination to transgression, God is indeed Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful. 005:003 (yusuf alis translation)
See, This day have I completed for you your religion and completed My favour on you , so how come for about 180 years after that day the Muslims needed another book(s) in additin to the Quran after it was completed as Allah told us in 5:3 above?
It is said by the age of ten, Imam Bukhari had memorised 70,000 hadith by heart with their complete chain of narrations going from him to his teacher, and his teacher's teacher, all the way to the Prophet Muhammad
Let’s do some calculations:
Let’s say an hour is a time (yet hard) to perfectly memorise one hadith and its complete chain of narrations going from him to his teacher, and his teacher's teacher, all the way to the Prophet, so 10 years old Bukhari needed 70,000 hours to achieve what is said above.
70,000 hours = 2916 days
2916 days = 8 years
Opps, Bukhari was 10 years at the time, oh yeh he spent his life since 2 years old 24 hours a day bloody memorising 70,000 hadiths with their complete chain of narrations going from him to his teacher, and his teacher's teacher, all the way to the Prophet, would that make any sense to a child?
Well, what is more revolting that how they confirmed that he actually memorised 70,000 hadiths with their complete chain of narrations going from him to his teacher, and his teacher's teacher, all the way to the Prophet at the age of 10?, I guess someone must sit there and listens to him saying the hadith then somehow confirms it with something recorded that is available, that is in no way an easy and realistic task but let’s just assume it happened and they needed 15 mintues to confirm that this 10 years old kid perfectly memorsised a haidth, i.e. to just test Bukhari and confirm that he indeed memorised 70,000 hadith with their complete chain of narrations going from him to his teacher, and his teacher's teacher, all the way to the Prophet they needed 2 bloody years working 24 hours a day, again it does not add up to me.
he travelled all over the Islamic world, all the way to Egypt, Syria, Arabia, and Iraq, seeking hadith narrators and listening to them. It is said that he heard from over 1,000 men, and learned over 600,000 traditions, both authentic and rejected ones, and thus became the acknowledged authority on the subject
Bukhari was not happy with his 70,000 hadith that he learnt in his first 10 years of life, he wanted more, far more indeed, now Bukhari at a later age learned another 530,000 hearsay after talking with more than 1000 hearsayers, Bukhari was fully aware that many of those 600,000 hearsay may have been forged, it makes no sense to expect that the prophet since the age of 40 (when he started his message) till his death at the age of 63 has narrated 600,000 hearsay, this means the prophet was saying a hadith every 20 minutes 24 hours a day, so Bukhari knew that this is impossible, so he only included about 7000 of those 600,000 hearsay, the fatal mistake of Bukhari though that he admitted that many of his 7000 sahih hadith are Daif, i.e. Weak, yet he included them in his book, the hadith advocates and his followers defend his foolish act and say, he included them so the Ummah be aware that those hearsay that are Daif.
Hmmm, I say, don’t you think if he didn’t include it from the first place NO ONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT IT?, well and if that defence by his followers is true then why he didn’t include his 593,000 possibly forged ones so the Ummah will be aware of it too?
I say this 600,000 hadith that he learnt is as ludicrous as his 70,000 hadith he memorised by the age of 10, in fact if he needed 8 years to memorise 70,000 hadith with their complete chain of narrations going from him to his teacher and from his teacher to his teacher’s teacher and all the way to the prophet then Bukhari needed 68 years working 24 hours a day to be able to achieve that.
Opps, Bukhari only lived for about the same number of years (there is actually a conflict to how many years he lived and what year he died), again it does not make any sense, and again how they bloody confirmed this hearsay that he indeed memorised this huge number of hearsays that is equivalent to more than 96 full Qurans? If we consider that one hadith = I Quran verse in length, it can only make sense if they just took the hearsay about Bukhari himself for granted.
After sixteen years' absence he returned to Bukhara, and there drew up his al-Jami' al-Sahih, a collection of 7,275 tested traditions, arranged in chapters so as to afford bases for a complete system of jurisprudence without the use of speculative law.
his book named al-Jami' al-Sahih, the Authenticated Collector is meant to be a book of law, a collection of 7,275 tested traditions, arranged in chapters so as to afford bases for a complete system of jurisprudence without the use of speculative law. , i.e. another law book next to the Quran (i refer the reader to 6:114 for the real islamic source of law), ands sure following both is a clear cut case of SHIRK especially when one contradict the other, the whole books of hearsay hadith are indeed nothig but speculative, yet they are telling us: without the use of speculative law , as if stoning the adulterers is not speculative, as if killing the apostates is not speculative, as if approching the wives while they are having their perods for sexual desire is not speculative. It’s amazing what they claim and want to convince us with.
His book is highly regarded among Sunni Muslims, and considered the most authentic collection of hadith (a minority of Sunni scholars consider Sahih Muslim, compiled by Bukhari's student Imam Muslim, more authentic).
The bottomline is. Bukhari viewed less than 10% of his alleged source material trustworthy. The 90% of it was discarded rigth away as lies and conjecture. This means, in other words, that the socalled sahaba, the companions of the prophet seems to have had no problem at all lying throught their teeth about Mohammad after his death for personal gain. This altso goes well with the powerstruggle we know for a fact arose after his death. Who was to be khaliffa?
One of the most quoted story tellers of hadith is abu hyanifa (the father of cats) from hadith we learn that he only shallowly knew the prophet, but was a poor man that would tell a good story to get fed. So his tales makes up more than 15% of the bukhari hodgepodge. There is the true messengers of Islam as we see it today. A persian with poor arabic skills, and a flamboyant character on the political scene of the time. In other words, a charlatan who hijacked Islam that seen in the light of the Quran itself was revolutionary republic system (not unlike the constitutional Amerikan one). This was turned into a superstitious supernatural religion where everything either gives you a freeticket to heaven, superhuman powers or all of the above if you just utter certain magical rhymes now and then.

Al Bukhary and Muslim
When God says in the Quran: 'Obey God and obey the Messenger', the Muslims take God to be represented by the Quran and the Messenger to be represented by Bukhari and the Hadiths.
The prophet delivered the holy Quran by receiving its inspiration for many years.
"Say, 'Whose testimony is the greatest?' Say, 'God's. He is the witness between me and you that this Quran has been inspired to me, to preach it to you and whomever it reaches. Indeed, you bear witness that there are other gods beside God.' Say, 'I do not testify as you do; there is only one god, and I disown your idolatry.' (6:19)
Some of the people around the prophet at the time of revelation were very disturbed by the words of the Quran and even asked the prophet to bring them sayings 'other' than the book:
"When our revelations are recited to them, those who do not expect to meet us say, 'Bring a Quran other than this, or change it!' Say, 'I cannot possibly change it on my own. I simply follow what is revealed to me. I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the retribution of an awesome day.' (10:15)
Yet, the prophet could not help these people by changing the words of the Quran to suite their desires...he could only deliver the message as it was inspired to him and to them, for the Quran was a book unlike any other:
"Say: If men and jinn should combine together to bring the like of this Quran, they could not bring the like of it, though some of them were aiders of others. " (17:88)
So, when the people of the time listened to the words 'obey God & obey the Messenger', they understood that the words of God were being revealed through the person of the Messenger, and that to accept and obey these words was to obey and accept God Himself!.
After all, the words of God were unlike anything they had heard of before...
"When you read the Quran, we place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter an invisible barrier. We place shields around their minds, to prevent them from understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you preach your Lord, using the Quran alone, they run away in aversion." (17:45-46)
After the death of the prophet, the people who had fought his message and the words of the Quran saw that this was a 'no win' situation for them, and that the words of God would capture the hearts of every believing man and women filling them with justice, equality, tolerance, peace, and freedom.
Yet, even with the spreading of the message, God had predicted the inevitable:
"We have permitted the enemies of every prophet - human and alien devils - to inspire to each other fancy words, in order to deceive. Had your Lord willed, they would not have done it. You shall disregard them and their fabrications.This is to let the minds of those who do not believe in the Hereafter listen to such fabrications, and accept them, and thus expose their real convictions. " (6:112-113)
Enter the 'Hadith' collectors and narrators...
These were people who could not be satisfied with the words of God Alone and were searching for new gods to replace those that Islam had destroyed.
Bukhari was one such person...
Being born some 200 years after the prophet's death Bukhari went to perform a task that none of the native Arabs had dared to do...He collected the Hadiths under the guise of 'complementing' the Quran, when in reality his true mission was to undermine and destroy its message with those of his masters!.
Just like Paul (not Jesus) is the father of today's Christianity, so it is that Bukhari (and not the prophet) is the true head of what we call 'Islam' in its present form!.
It is time for Muslims to WAKE-UP and realize that their religion has been hijacked for the last 1,000 years by the enemies of their prophet, and that tyrannical and brutal regimes are a model image of what Bukhari and his colleagues had intended for Islam...They could not destroy the Quran, but they found another way to distort it's message to mankind.
Will we continue to propagate these lies?.
Or will we take a stand against the idols that wish to discredit God & His Messenger's words?.
Below is a sample of what God's enemies have been propagating:
Narrated Hudayfh Ibn al-Yaman: Prophet said: "There will come rulers after me who do not guide to my guidance and do not practice my Sunnah, and the hearts of some them are the hearts of Satans but they are in the body of human." I said: "What should we do at that time?" Prophet (PBUH) said: "You should just listen to them and obey those rulers. No matter if the hurt you and take your wealth, you should follow them and obey them."
Reference: Sahih Muslim, Chapter of al-Imaarah (chapter 33 for the Arabic version), Section of necessity of joining the majority, 1980 Edition, Arabic version (Saudi Arabia), v3, p1476, Tradition #52.
Beware that our prophet's complaint on judgment day does not include you:
"And the messenger said, 'My Lord, my people have deserted this Quran.' (25:30)
it does not say, 'have deserted Bukhari and muslims sunnah"
