The Mishkat has enjoyed wide popularity in the world of Islamic learning since 516AH when it was first compiled by Imam Wali'ud-Din Abu Abd'Allah Mahmud al-Tabrizi, may Allah be leased with him.Mishkat al-Masabih which means 'A Niche for Lamps' is an expanded version of Masabih al-Sunnah by Abu Muammad ibn Abdullah Khatib Al-Tabrizi (d. 741H) who was known as Muhyi As-Sunnah (Reviver of the Sunnah). Al-Tabrizi added to it the chains of transmission, the narrators and the authenticity of the hadith. Thus making it more beneficial to those not having an advanced knowledge of the science of hadith.The Collection is divided into twenty-nine books (kutub) and each book is divided into several chapters (abwab). Thereafter each chapter is further divided into three sections (fasl). The Mishkat has enjoyed wide popularity in the world of Islamic learning Since 516 AH when it was first compiled by Al-Tabrizi. Most of the Hadith are from the Sahih Sitta. (the six Authentic Hadith Books). Imam Wali' ud-Din 'Abu Abd'Allah Mahmud al-Tabrizi, may Allah have nercy upon him, was a renowned muhaddith (scholar of hadith) of his time. He was well-versed in the intricacies of the Arabic language and rhetorics. It is unfortunate, however, that not much is known about his life.
