After numerous collections of hadith
had been made during the third century of Islam six works became recognised as authoritative. Two of them are believed to be completely authentic, namely the Sahih al-Bukhari and the Sahih Muslim.
The other four known as the Sunan Sahih al-Tirmidhi, Sunan Ibn Majah, Sunan Abu Dawud, and Sunan Nasa'i are also highly esteemed but it is regarded lower in category to Sahih Bukhari and Muslim.
, in Central Asia has given the world many religious scholars whose names are inscribed for ever on the pages of Islamic history. Among them we find such a distinguished person as Abu Abdur Rahman Ahmad bin Shu'aib an Nasai'i, may Allah be pleased with him
. His book Sunan
occupies an outstanding place among six principal hadith
collections (Sihah Sittah
) known in the Muslim world.
Imam Nasa'i was very careful while selecting materials for his work. This is why many scholars consider that the book Sunan Nasa'i
occupies third place in hadith
collections after Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. It contains 5764 tradition, said to have been carefully collected out of 500,000.'

Imam an-Nasa'i was born in the town of Nasa'
in the province of Khurasan. After gaining hadith
from the teachers in his own city, Imam an-Nasa'i travelled through Khurasan, Iraq, the Hijaz, Syria and Egypt collecting ahadith. Egypt was where Imam an-Nasa'i settled and established his center for teaching and studies here.
