Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect. [Al-Ahzab (33:56)]

Approval of Bukhari Shareef

Hazrat Abu Yeazid Marushi was a famous Islamic scholar.

Abu Yeazid Marushi narrates that once he was sleeping at the Masjid-ul-Haram. During this time, he was blessed with the vision of the Beloved Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) in a dream. In the dream, the Beloved Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) stated: “Oh Abu Yeazid! Why do not you teach my book?” At this Abu Yeazid Marushi asked: “Oh Rasool Allah (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam)! Which one is your book?” The Beloved Prophet (sallallahu alaihe wa sallam) stated: “The book collected by Muhammad Ibn Ismail Bukhari is my book.”

Certainly, Bukhari Shareef is the second greatest book on earth after the Holy Qu’ran.
