Study «Buloogh al-Maraam»

Reference: Kitaabul-‘Ilm – Page 109, Question 10

Question: Is the book «al-Muharrar» of Ibn ‘Abdil-Haadee not better than «Buloogh al-Maraam» [of Ibn Hajar al-Asqalaanee]?

Response: «Buloogh al-Maraam» is widely available to the people and its author is a muhaqqiq; and it is befitting (appropriate) that a person refers to that [book] which is [more] widely available than that which is not. This is because the people will not benefit much from something which is hardly in circulation [amongst the people], [as opposed to the book] «Buloogh al-Maraam» which is [well] known and has been read and explained by our scholars.
