Description :

Umdat al-Qari sharh Sahih al-Bukhari :  This sharh is considered as one of the best and largest of Sahih al-Bukhari. It is very extensive and was written in the period of Imam Ibn Hajar al-'Asqalani's work Fath al-Bari bi Sharh Sahih al-Bukhari. It is fundamentally different to the aforementioned work because it discusses in certain issues much more in depth. Imam Badr al-Din al-'Ayni, was a shaykh of the Hanafi madhhab and therefore provides evidences from a Hanafi perspective in many aspects.

This Print :

This New edition of 23 volumes is extremely well edited and researched. It contains background study of the authors, their times, their works, the importance of this work as well as the various other commentaries and how it compares.  It compares various manuscripts used for the prints of the Umdat al-Qari.

About the Author :

He is Imam al-Allamah, Badr al-Din Mahmud b. Ahmed b. Musa b. al-'Ayntabi al-Hanafi  al-'Ayni, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, born 762 AH (1360 CE), died 855 AH (1453 CE) was a scholar of the Hanafi madhhab. Al-'Ayni is an abbreviation for al-'Ayntābi, referring to his native city. He was born into a scholarly family in 762 AH (1360 CE) in the city of 'Ayntāb (which is now Gaziantep in modern Turkey). He studied history, adab, and Islamic religious sciences, and was fluent in Turkish. There is some evidence that he also knew at least some Persian.

In 788 AH (1386 CE) he travelled to Jerusalem, where he met the Hanafi shaykh al-Sayrāmī, who was the head of the newly established Zāhiriyah madrasah (school) and khānqah (Sufi retreat.) Al-Sayrami invited al-'Ayni to accompany him home to Cairo, where he became affluent. From Cairo he went to teach in Damascus, where he was appointed muhtasib (overseer of sharia in the marketplace) by the amir, and returned to Cairo some time before 800 AH (1398 CE.)

Al-'Ayni's prestige grew as he aged. Mu'ayyad Shaykh named him ambassador to the Qaramanids in 823 AH (1420 CE.) Later in life he would be called upon to lecture on learned topics before the Sultan, sometimes reading history aloud in Arabic and explaining it in Turkish for the Sultan's benefit. The Sultan al-Ashraf Barsbāy is reported to have said "Islam is known only through him" and "If not for al-'Ayntabi there would be something suspect in our Islam." Barsbāy sometimes sent al-'Ayni as his representative to greet foreign dignitaries, apparently because of his fluency in several languages.

Barsbāy often turned to al-'Ayni for advice on legal matters, and named him chief Hanafi qadi (judge) in 829 AH (1426 CE.) He was dismissed from this post after three years; by his own report, both he and the chief Shafi'i qadi, Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani, were dismissed at the same time because their constant feuding was distracting them from their duties; though he adds that this was a calumny spread by his enemies at court. He was later reappointed.

Imam al-Ayni died in 855 AH (1451 CE) at the age of ninety-three, having outlived all his children, and was buried in his own madrasah in Cairo.
