    We have started a project to translate Fathul bari in english at
    Knowledgeable brothers may please point out the mistakes. In the event of sizeable collection, we will insha'allah get a da'wah centre to publish it for all muslims.

    wa'alaikum as-salaam,
    Isn't it better for us to learn Arabic and then access it?

    I agree there is no work around for avoiding Arabic. Arabic is a prerequisite for all learning. But sometimes a brother may want to look up the sharah of a hadith and it maybe useful to him. That is all we intend.

    I don't think someone who does not know arabic should be reading Fathul 'Bari. Lets put certain things into priority.

    May Allah bless and reward you for your effort dear brother, this work is absolutly huge, 10 volumes or something.

    Make sure you keep a niceley formated word document, so once each section is done you can distrubute that, as its easier to read search etc.

    I do not know if you are including arabic hadith text within it, ,but it maybe an idea, then again it maybe not.

    I saw the link:
    Who is deciding what is included or omitted in the translation?

    That's ijtihad on my part. e.g. i omitted the discussion on "innama" and some quotes of kirmani and ghazzali, where i thought appropriate. Anyway it is a thread and you can suggest what to add or delete. Then the moderators take care of the suggestion.

    A brother from Indonesia told me they have already published 15 volumes (in indonesian language it is more because of addition of footnotes and arabic text etc) and work is near completion. It seems our english world is lagging behind.

    Jazakallhu khair for the suggestions. Its 13 volumes, excluding the volume of the preface (hadyussari)

    Another suggestion would be, since you are keeping all on a sticky thread, to keep the thread clean of any comments and questions etc, and keep the thread just for the fath al bari posts. Barakallah Feek.

    Why not include them if Imam Ibn Hajar deemed them relevant to cite?

    justabro Salafi (Retd.)

    Ibn Hajar discusses everything, I think br. bilal has taken the wise course by translating the most important points that would be relevant for the average English-speaking reader to refer to if he needed commentary.

    Wa feeka baarik
    I would ask the moderators to do that.

    Would u be kind enough to check it from time to time to inform me of the errors, whenever u see them or perhaps better paraphrasing. Jazakallahu khair.

    I would love it if there was an English translation.

    What a noble project akhi.

    May Allah reward you.

    So much better than the usual internet fitnah of "qeela wa qaal" we see from so many muslims...!

    Wallahu masta'aan.

    What is Fathul Baari?
  20. ykhan

    ykhan New Member

    Fath ul Baari is a 13 volume explaination of Imaam al Bukhaari's Saheeh ul Jaami ( commonly called Saheeh ul Bukhaari).

    AL Haafidh Ibn Hajr died before he could complete the work so the explanation is not complete.

    It is widely regarded by all "hadeeth/sunni" scholars past and present as the best commentary on Saheeh ul Bukhaari and Allah knows best.
