Al -Tirmidhi

Al – Tirmidh (also transliterated as Tirmizi, full name Abu Isa Muhammad ibn Isa ibn Surat ibn Musa ibn ad-Dahhak as-Sulami) was a medieval arab collector of hadith (sayings of the ProphetMuhammad pbuh)

He wrote the Sunan al-Tirmidhi, one of the six canonical hadith compilations used in SunniIslam. He was born (and would die) in Bugh, a suburb of Termez (Arabic Tirmidh) Uzbekistan, to a family of the widespread Ban? Sulaym tribe. Starting at the age of twenty, he travelled widely, to Kufa, Basra and the Hijaz, seeking out knowledge from, among others, Qutaiba ibn Said, Bukhari, Imam Muslim and Abu Dawud.
Tirmidh? was blind in the last two years of his life. Tirmidhi is buried in Sherobod, 60 kilometers north of Termez, Uzbekistan. He is locally know as Iso At Termizi or Termiz Ota (Father of Termez City).
Tirmidh? wrote nine books, of which, after the Jami, al-’Ilal and “Shamail” are best-known; only four of his works survive. He played a major part in giving the formerly vague terminology used in classifying hadith according to their reliability a more precise set of definitions.

May Allah (swt) be pleased with his immense contribution to Islam which allows us to learn more about our beloved role model Prophet (pbuh)
