This book is the biography of Imam Aboo Dau'd Sijistani, the compiler of Sunan Abu Dawud, one of the six major books of hadeeth that are a primary source of knowledge about Islam. In compiling his biography I tried to keep it from being so long as to be boring but not so short as to be uninformative. I mentioned the reports with their sources, but I tried to avoid referencing every report in order to avoid burdening the reader with lengthy footnotes. I did not attempt to examine the chains of transmission for these reports, for I relied upon the judgment of the major hadeeth scholars, such as Dhahabee, who saw the reports fit enough to mention in their works. I avoided reports that major critically minded scholars criticized or declared unreliable. And it is Allah Whose help is sought.
