Bukhari Publications is an organization dedicated to translating, expounding and disseminating ḥadīth literature in plain English. The company has been named after the famous Persian scholar, Muḥammad ibn Ismāʿīl al-Bukhārī, who was undoubtedly a leader in the field of ḥadīth studies. Just as his name has become the benchmark for scholarly excellence in the field of ḥadīth studies, we at Bukhari Publications are committed to producing works in this field of the highest quality and the greatest academic standards.
Our focus on ḥadīth literature is due to the fact that the preserved teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) play an integral role in every Muslim’s life. The correct comprehension of the Qurʾān is dependent on it, as Allah has revealed, “And We revealed the message to you so that you may clarify to people what was sent down to them. Perhaps they may reflect [over it].” (Sūrat al-Naḥl 16:44)
As Anglophone Muslims, we can only understand and emulate the Prophet’s example if his teachings are clear and comprehensible. Hence, Bukhari Publications has been formed to make ḥadīth literature more accessible and more useable than it already is for Anglophone Muslims across the globe.
Our objectives at Bukhari Publications are:
• To render all accessible ḥadīth literature into plain English.
• To enhance people’s understanding and connection with ḥadīth literature by publishing commentaries on such works, and delivering workshops and seminars on themes related to this field.
• To create confidence of these works in every Muslims heart by publishing research papers written by scholars worldwide.
Our vision is to become the number one global resource for ḥadīth literature in English
