A Selective Bibliography of Hadith Studies
Mohammad, "Ibn Hajar's Hady al-Sari: A Medieval Interpretation of the Structure of al-Bukhari's al-Jami' al-Sahih: Introduction and Translation," Journal of Near Eastern Studies, vol. 54, no. 3, 1995, pp. 161-197.Hady al-Sari is Ibn Hajar's introduction to his famous commentary on Sahih al-Bukhari, Fath al-Bari. Fadel briefly compares Ibn Hajar's understanding of the structure of Bukhari to that of Ignaz Goldziher. He then provides a translation of the first four chapters of Hady al-Sari, and adds two appendices: an index of the proper names found in the translation, and a brief glossary with 15 entries.
Fadel explains: "Hady al-sari is a lengthy work. Much of it consists of indexes: a glossary of rare words found in the Sahih, vocalizations of ambiguous proper names, full identification of the transmitters al-Bukhari cited in his work, etc. The first four chapters, however, present his view of the generic features of Sahih al-Bukhari as a text. In these chapters, Ibn Hajar is concerned with revealing the structure of the work and explaining the complexities which arise in this work as a result of its structure."
