In this book, Shaykh Muhammad ‘Imarah addresses a number of allegations against the Sahih compilations of Hadith, al Bukhari and Muslim, made by the Shia in the book Bayt al Ankabut, lit. spiderweb. The mental gymnastics and emotionally charged rhetoric used to criticise these great works are responded to in a collected and academic manner, laying to rest a number of commonly circulated accusations concerning these and other books of hadith.
