He is Abu al Hussain Razin ibn Muawiyah al ‘Abdari al Saraqusti al Andalusi al Maliki (d. 535 A.H).
It is stated in ‘Abaqat (vol. 1 pg. 252) that the book al Jam’ Bayn al Sihah al Sittah’ has a narration from Zaid ibn Arqam radiya Llahu ‘anhu.
Let the readers know that al ‘Abdari combined six of our books, namely Bukhari, Muslim, Muwattaʾ, Tirmidhi, Abu Dawood, and Nasa’i. He named this compilation al Jam’ Bayn al Sihah al Sittah. Since these six books include Muslim and Tirmidhi, it is obvious that the narrations of Thaqalayn narrated by Muslim and Tirmidhi will appear in it. Al ‘Abdari did not narrate it through any separate isnad. He simply quoted the narrations of Muslim and Tirmidhi, therefore his narration will not require any separate answer. The answers that were written under the narrations of Muslim and Tirmidhi will apply here as well. Refer to them for further satisfaction.Back to top
