The Biography of Imam Aboo Dawood Sijistani
The blessings of Allah upon this Ummah is that He selected for it individuals who would embark on to preserve the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammade (SAW). They were the scholars who dedicated their whole life to this immense mission, foregoing physical pleasures and taking delight, instead spent the nights recording hadeeth and in undergoing hardships in order to communicate even one hadeeth. One of those scholars was Aboo Daud Sijistaanee.
