al-Jaami’ as-Saheeh of al-Bukhaaree

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 12, Page 391

Abu Zayd al-Marwazee, the jurist said:

I was asleep [by the Ka’bah] between the [al-Hajr al-Aswad] corner and the Maqaam [Ibraaheem], and I saw the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), and he said to me:

‘O Abu Zayd, until when will you [continue to] study the Book of ash-Shaafi’ee, and [yet] you do not study my book?’

So I said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah, what is your book?’

He said: ‘[It is the al-]Jaami’ [as-Saheeh] of Muhammad ibn Ismaa’eel [al-Bukhaaree].’
