Jami' At-Tirmidhi (6 Vol. Set)

In summary of the benefit of Sunan At-Tirmidhi, Al-Qadi Ibn Al-`Arabi mentioned the famous collections of Ahadith and he said: "And there is none among them like the book of Abu `Eisa..." And he said: "In it are fourteen (categories) of knowledge, and that makes it easier and safer to act upon..."

He listed them as:
1. Chains of narration (Asnad);
2. Authenticity (Sahhah);
3. Weakness (Da`afa);
4. Multiple routes of transmission (Turuq);
5. Disparaging remarks regarding narrators (Jarh):
6. Endorsing remarks regarding narrators (Addal);
7. Names of narrators;
8. Kuuyah (surnames) of narrators:
9. Connected narrations (Wasal);
10. Disconnected narrations (Qata');
11. The clearest of what is to be acted upon;
12. What is abandoned of narrations:
13. Clarification of the differences of the scholars in rejecting and accepting narrations;
14. Mention of their differences in interpretation of the narrations.

By these, he indicated that this collection of Imam At-Tirmidhi includes each of these types of knowledge in it.
The original text of Sunan At-Timidhi has been widely published in the Islamic world, and a team of scholars has reviewed the famous publications and manuscripts in verification of the text for our publication.
Finally, there were three main texts relied upon for verification, and these are the text published in India, with the commentary Tuhfat AI-Ahwadhi by Shaikh Abdur-Rahman Al-Mubarakpuri; the text published in Beirut, with the commentary Aridat A1-Ahwadhi by Al-Qadi Ibn Al-Arabi; and the text published in Tunisia which is based upon the text verified by Shaikh Ahmad Shakir and Muhammad Fuw'ad 'Abdul-Bagi.

There are slight discrepancies of variation in some of the manuscripts and published editions. Sometimes there is an additional word here or there, or one Hadith or chapter is cited earlier or later in sequence in one manuscript.
In cases of additional words or phrases found in one or few of the manuscripts and editions, the addition has been marked by square brackets [ ]. This method is visible in the English translation as well, and whenever it was deemed necessary to insert an explanatory term, then parenthesis ( ) were used for that purpose.

Lastly, all of the Ahddith in the text have been graded by the great research scholar Hafiz Zubair 'All Za'i.
We ask Allah to accept our good works in this endeavor, and to cause all of the readers to attain the best benefit from it.
