Translated from the Persian into Arabic and annotated by Muhammad Akram Al-Nadwi.

Translated into English by Aisha Bewley.

Bustan al Muhaditheen is a well-known anthology of hadith sciences, major books of hadith and Muhaditheen. Originall written in Persian in the early nineteenth century by Shah Abd Al Aziz Ad-Dehlawi (1745-1822), it has been extremely popular among scholars of hadith in India ever since. It surpasses other books written on the same subject in Arabic, Persian and other languages. The Garden of the Hadith Scholars was translated into Arabic by Muhammad Akram an-Nadwi. The book before us is the translation by 'Aishah Bewley, perhaps the most distinguished living translator from classical Arabic, of the Bustan al Muhaditheen. This extraordinary work by Imam 'Abd al-'Aziz (1159 to 1239 AH), the son of Shah Wali Allah Ad-Dihlawi, is a masterful account of the major Hadith collections and their authors. Replete with information on these great men and their books, this work will be indispensable for the serious student of Hadith.

Shah ‘Abd al-‘Aziz Muhaddith Dihlawi
Shah Abd al-‘Aziz (1745-1822) was born in Delhi. He studied under his father Shah Wali Allah, and with his father’s famous students, Shah Muhammad ‘Ashiq and Mawlana Khwaja Aminullah. He was trained in fiqh by his father-in-law Mawlana Nurullah. In 1762, Shah ‘Abd al’Aziz succeeded his father in the Madrasah Rahimiyah and soon emerged as the leading Muslim scholar of his time. His students spread to every corner of India.

Dr Muhammad Akram Al-Nadwi
Dr Muhammad Akram Al-Nadwi, who translated the present work from Persian into Arabic and annotated it, was born in 1963 in Jaunpur, U.P., India. He was educated at Nadwat al-‘Ulama, Lucknow and the University of Lucknow, is the author and translator of over 25 books on the Islamic Sciences and the Arabic language. He taught Islamic Sciences at Nadwat al-‘Ulama for six years. Dr Akram joined the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies in 1991 as a Research Fellow.
