Question: Was Imam Bukhari a ‘Muqallad‘ (Follower of any school of thought among four dominant Sunni schools)?
Simple and Detailed answer with Scans GIFT FOR AHLU HADITH once and for all.
Ghair Muqallideen Aksar Kaha Karte Hain Ke Imaam Bukhari (Rha) Muqallid Nahi The Balke Ghair Muqallid The….…Jo Inki Naa Waqfi Aur Mutaalia Ki Kami Ki Baat Hai Kyunki In He Ke Baron Ne Imaam Bukhaari (Rha) Ko Muqallid Likha Hai…..
Ghair Muqallideen (I.e, Wahhabism/salafism/Ahluhadith-ism) says that Imam bukhari (rd) was not Muqallid (Follower of any one Imam among 4 famous school of thoughts in Islam). This is what an open lie and total denial because authentic literature of Tabaqat deny this. Even their own scholars has written this in their books.
1) Nawaab Siddique Hasan Khaan Ne Imaam Bukhari Ko Shaafai Batlaaya Hai…Dekhiye : (Abjad Ul Uloom Jild 3 Safha 126-127)
1) Nawaz Siddiq Hasan khan bhopali (Qanuji) has included him (Imam al Bukhari) among the Shafi’i School of Thought. See the scan
Imam Qastalaani (Rha) Ne Bukhari Ki Sharah IRSHAAD AS-SAARI Me Imaam Bukhaari (Rha) Ko Shaafai Naqal Kiya Hai…Dekho: Jild 1 Safha 33 .
En: Imam Muhadith Qastalani (rta) has mentioned Imam Bukhari (rd) in his Sharah Irshad as-Saari as Shafi’e . Vol 1 Page 33. Scan
Hazrat Shah Waliyullah Dehlawi (Rha) Ne Bhi Inko Shaafai Qaraar Diya Hai..Dekhiye: (Insaaf Safha 50) . Muhadith Shah waliullah dehlawi (rta) also mentioned him as Shafi’e.
Imam Subki (rta) mentioned him from al-Shafie School in his famous Tabaqat al Shafi’eeya pp 214
Kuch Log Imaam Bukhaari (Rha) Ko Hanbli Qaraar Dete Hain…… Ibne Taimiya Ka Yahi Rujhaan Hai…Chunaanche likhte Hain:.
”Aimma Hadees Jaise Bukhari.. Muslim..Tirmizi..Nasai..Aur Inke Alaawah Kuch Dosre Muhaddiseen Bhi Imaam Ahmad Aur Imaam Ishaaq Ibne Raahwiya Ke Muttabaeen Me Inka Shumaar Bhi Unhin Logo Me Se Hai Jinhone Un Dono Se Fiqah Aur Hadees Ka ilm Haasil Kiya”.(Faatwa..jild 25 Safha 232)
Some people’s narrative is that He was from Hanbali School of thought, thus Ahlu hadith/wahabi/salafi’s Guru Ibne Taymmiyah al-harani writes in his Fatawa Vol 25 Pp 232 that “Aima of hadith like, Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi, Nasai and a part from them some other Muhaditheen, were also opt to follow the verdict of Imam Ahmed and Imam Ishaq, Ibn al Rawhoya’s followers are also considered among those people who take the knowledge of Fiqh from them“.
Ibn al Qayyim the famous student of ibne Taymmiyah also declared him from Hanabils. i.e., Hanbali A’laam Ul Muqaeen, Jild 3 Safha 543
Baher Haal Imaam Bukhari (Rha) Khwaah Imaam Shafai (Rha) Ke Muttabe Wa Muqallid Hon…Khwaah Imaam Ahmad (Rha) Ke Muttabe Aur Muqallid Hon…Woh The Muqallid He…Kisi Ne Unko Ghair Muqallid Nahi Qaraar Diya Hai…
In anyway! whether Imam Bukhari (rd) was following the madhab of Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal (rd) or Imam Shafi’e (Rd). Still this does not validate Wahhabi claims that he was not muqallad in both ways he will be considered as Muqallad. No one in entire history declared him or mentioned him as non-muqallad (non-follower of taqlid).
Isliye Imaam Bukhaari (Rha) Ke Baare Me Ye Kehna Ke Woh Ghair Muqallid The Bila Tehqeeq Baat Hogi…Aur Agar Unko Muqallid Nahi Balke Mujtahid Mutlaq Qaraar Diya Jaaye To Woh Aise Mujtahid The Ke Unki Fiqhi Maslak Ko Ummat Ne Qubool Nahi Kiya Aur Na Islam Ki Tarikh Me Imaam Bukhari (Rha) Ka Koi Muttabe…Muqallid Nazar Aata Hai…Imam Tirmizi (Rha) Imam Bukhari (Rha) Ke Khaas Shagird The Woh Hadees Ke Silsila Me To Imam Bukhari (Rha) Ki Raaye Aur Unka Qaul Naqal Karte Hain Magar Fiqhi Mazhab Ke Bayaan Me Unka Kahin Zikr Nahi Karte….Ya’Ni Khud Imam Tirmizi (Rha) Ki Nigaah Me Bukhari (Rha) Sirf Muhaddis The Fiqah Me Unka Alag Se Koi Mazhab Nahi Tha…Balke Woh Yaa To Imaam Shaafai (Rha) Ka Qaul Ikhtiyaar Karte Hain Ya Imam Ahmad Bin Hanbal (Rha) Ka.
For such, regarding Imam Bukhari (rd), saying this that he was non-follower (ghair-muqallid) (like wahhabis) it is proven wrong. And even after that if someone say that, he was Mujtahid Mutlaq (Agreed Jurist), then his Fiqhi Maslak (rules of sharia / fiqh) was not been accepted (as school of thought) so he has no such Muttabe left behind (follower of established school) Imam Tirmizi was famous student of Imam Bukhari (Rd), he narrates Imam bukhari’s point of views but never mentioned his view in matters of fiqh. This also shows that by this act, Imam bukhari (rd) was considered only Muhaddith and he was not having other madhab regarding fiqh. He used to either accept the saying of Imam Shafi’e (rd) (for that matter) or either Imam Ahmed (rd).
Albatta ilm-E-Hadees Me Woh Mujtahid The…Aur Aimma Hadees Me Unka Muqaam Buland Tha….Aur Ab Aakhir Me Batur Lateefa Ye Bhi Sun Lijiye Ke Agar Aap Unko (Imaam Bukhaari [Rha] Ko Ghair Muqallid Bhi Qaraar Denge To Woh Is Zamaane Wale Ghair Muqallid Nahi The.
But in Knowledge of Hadith, he was Mujtahid (The Jurist). and in the category of Aima of Hadith (Scholars of Hadith) he has higher status. Now in the end for counter question, eve if you (Wahabis) (Salafis) (ahlu hadis) still consider him (Ghari – Muqallid) , then still he was not that type of (ghari muqallad) which now a days you are. WHY? read below.
…Is Liye Ke Is Zamaana Ke Ghair Muqallido Ka Mazhab Ye Hai Ke Ek Majlis Ki 3 Talaaq 1 Hogi Aur Imaam Bukhari Ke Yahan Ek Majlis Ki 3 Talaaq 3 He Shumaar Hogi….Aaj Ke Ghair Muqallidon Ka Mazhab Ye Hai Ke Haalat E Haiz Me Jo Talaaq Di Jaayegi Woh Waaqe Na Hogi..Imaam Bukhari (Rha) Ke Yahaan Waaqe Ho Jaayegi….Aaj Kal Ke Ghair Muqallideen Ek Haath Se Musafah Karte Hain..Imaam Bukhari (Rha) Dono Haath Se Musaafah Ke Qaayel The….
Reason is because! the religion of now a days (ghari-muqallid) consider 3 talaqs (divorce sayings) as 1 (as one sitting), but in the religion of Imam Bukhari (rd), he recognizes 3 talaqs as 3 talaqs in one majlis. (means at a time). Today’s (g-m)’s religion says that during menses period if talaq was given (divorce) it will not activate divorce. While In the religion of Imam Bukhar (Rd), the divorce is been activated. Today’s (ghair-muqallidins) shake hand with one palm while, in Imam bukhari (rd) was qail (accepter) of shaking hands with both hands.
Aaj Kal Ke Ghair Muqallideen Tahajjud Aur Taraaweeh Ko Ek Batlaate Hain…Imaam Bukhari(Rha) Ke Yahaan Tahajjud Alag Aur Taraaweeh Alag Namaz Thi.
Today’s (G-M) believe that Tahajjud Prayer and Taraweeh are the Same and One. While in fiqh of Imam bukhari (rd) Tahajud is considered separate prayer and Taraweeh is else.
Aaj Kal Ke Ghair Muqallideen 8 Rakaat Taraaweeh Padhte Hain….Imaam Bukhari 8 Rakaat Taraaweeh Ke Qaayel Nahi The..Aaj Kal Ke Ghair Muqallideen Qabron Se Tabarruk Haasil Karne Ko Haraam Kehte Hain
G-M perform 8 rakah of taraweeh in ramadhan while, in the fiqh of Imam bukhari (rd) he was not qail of 8 rakah. (i.e, he also recognize 20 raka). Now a days’ G-M’s does not consider tabaruk (blessings) from Qaboor (graves), and call it haram, while the thing was different and opposite to this in case of Imam bukhari (rd).
Aur Imam Bukhari (Rha) Qabro Se Tabarruk Haasil Karne Ke Qaayel The….Chunaanche Unhone Apni Taareekh Likhne Ki Ibtida Aan Huzoor Sallallahu AlaihiWasallam Ki Qabr Mubarak Ke Paas Baith Kar Ki….
Imam bukhari (rd) was in favour of seeking tabaruk (blessings) from Qabur (graves). For such is the proof that he started to writing his ‘Tareekh’ (history) while sitting near the Prophet (sal Allahu tala alehi wasalam)’s blessed grave (Rawdha e Nabawiyah).
Imaam Bukhari (Rha) Khud Farmaate Hain:.”Maine Apni Taareekh Ki Tasneef Ki Ibtida Madeena Munwwara Me Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam Ki Qabr [Mubarak] Ke Paas Ki”.(Muqaddama fath Ul Bari Safha 479).
Imam Bukhari (Rd) himself says: “I started to write my history (book) by starting it in Madina al-munawarah, near the Qabr Mubarak of Prophet (sal Allahu tala alehi wasalam).”
(rf: Muqaddama Fathul Baari Page 479)
Aaj Kal Ke Ghair Muqallideen Buzurgon Ke Tabarrukaat Se Faayeda Uthhane Ko Haraam Samjhte Hain…Imaam Bukhari (Rha) Ke Yahaan Buzurgo Ke Tabarrukaat Se Barkat Haasil Karna Jaayez Tha…..
Today’s ghair muqalladeen consider these acts and Tabarukats as polytheism and haram. While Imam bukhari (rd) consider it valid and permissible.
Haafiz ibne Hajar (Rha) Likhte Hain:.”Unke Paas (Ya’Ni Imaam Bukhaari Ke Paas) Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam Ka Kuch Baal Mubarak Thay Wo Use Apne Libaas Me Rakhte The”.Dekhiye: (Muqaddama Fathul Baari Safha 482)
Imam al Hafidh Ibne Hajar (rd) writes: “….he was (means Imam Bukhari (rd)) having few sacred hairs of Prophet (sal Allahu alehi wasalam) which he use to keep with him in his dress“. (Ref: Muqaddamah Fathul Bari Page 482) (this is clear proof of Tabaruk)
Gharz Imaam Bukhaari (Rha) Ghair Muqallid Bhi Honge To Woh Aaj Wale Ghair Muqallid Nahi The….Unka Mazhab Aaj Ke Ghair Muqallidon Se Bilkul Alag Tha..Lehaza ALLAH Ta’laa Se Dua Hai Ke Woh Hamen Aaj Kal Ke Ghair Muqallideen Aur Unke Fitno Se Mahfooz Farmaaye…Aameen Summa Aameen

End of the Post from (FB) now updating some new scans regarding this issue.
All of the Salaf and Khalaf were not only Muqallids but al-most all of them were Sufis too. Here first i will present famous scholar of Sunni Islam Imam Abi Dawood (rd) the famous writer of (Sunna-Abi Dawood) of Siha’h Sattah. He was also Muqallid. see the scans you will also find many more names, these all scholars and sufis are been mentioned and recorded in the history of Islam step by step. All are having same beliefs, still all are from 4 different schools of thoughts, whose difference is not in belief but only in the expression of certain issues in Sharia. This simple thing is never been taught by Wahhabism / Salafism / Ahle hadis-ism. You will not find any of the scholar mentioning themselves as Salafis, Wahabis, ahle hadiths, quranian etc etc. If some are been called Ashab al Hadith (people of Hadith) that does not means that they became (Ahle Hadith of now a days).
I am presenting these scans and will be added more and more scholars muhadiseen and mufasireen in this article as we did with previous ones very soon. We hope this open Exposure of Truth will infiltrate diseased hearts and cured them.

Because we are not discussing Taqlid here, but on other hand we are just giving scans as a proof and evidence of what is been said here. All salaf and mustashariqeen, muhaditheen, mufasireen, mutabiyeen, were all one or another ‘Muqallad’ which means they opt to follow the verdict of one Imam or another from 4 dominant school of thoughts in Islam from last 1400 years. Many among them are also followers of Sufis, and if we say that, those were only Sufis who give basis for knowledge of Sharia, knowledge of hadith, knowledge of fiqh, history etc etc. All religious sciences are been made by those glorious people with the Blessings of Allah (aza-wa-jal).
We hope that those thoughts which might be putted in to many people’s minds about Imam Bukhari and other famous scholars are been revived. There is not a single mentioning of (Salafism) in the beliefs, (aqeedah), thoughts, practice of Islam of these great people. But now those victorians who are known as (Wahhabis in Indopak) they had a tend to fabricate the minds of the people from true messages and true authentic Islamic beliefs. May Allah bless them hidayah or if, it is not in their fate, then may Allah bless and save us from the ‘Sharr’ of these deviant sects. Ameen.

Another muhaddith Imam Ibn Hajar al asqalani was also following madhab of Imam Shafi’e (rd). Such that its proof that he was also muqallid from Shafi’e School of Thought. So if we apply the rule of today’s so called followers of Salaf i.e., Salafism, its proven that then we will have to consider all these famous scholars as polytheists. This is direct denial of Prophetic Rule, that Majority of the Ummah will be always on righteous way. So can we accept (Salafism’s Islam) or we still carry out Traditional orthodox authentic Sunni Sufi Islam.?
Choice is yours.!

In the book (Tahdhib al Asma wal Lughat) by Al-Imam, al-Faqih, Al-Hafidh, al-Muhadith Abi Zakariyah Muhaiyuddeen bin Sharf al-Nowvi (rta) Vol 1, Darul Kutub al Ilmiyah Beirut Lebanon.
Imam Nowvi (rta) is writing step by step that what is meaning of a (Sahabi) and who are (Taa’biyeen), then he explains the etymology of these words and meanings from Lughat of Arabs (linguistics of Arabs), as you can read in scans, he explains them in category wise, and from the section of tab’ibyeen (Those who were students of the Companions of Prophet)(alehisalatowasalam), he further put light upon his Shuyukh and his teachers as well as their teachers, also he write about Imam Shafi’e and several other Imams who were opt to follow Imam Shafi’e’s madhab and as well as he has also given the name of those Shuyukh with un broken chain who has their knowledge step by step from Students of Sahaba, they taken from Sahaba (Companions) and, they from Prophet (sal Allahu alehi wa alehi washabihi wasallim) and then among Awaloon wal Sabiqoons, Because of the length of that, i am giving direct scans each name is been mentioned by Yellow color. This all shows the madhab of Salaf and Khalaf, who were one or another following anyone of the Imams from the four Sunni School of Thoughts. i.e., (Hanafi/Maliki/Shafie/Hanbali).
Why today, these so called followers of Salafs (i.e, Wahhabi/Salafi/ahlu Hadith) are not on that way, upon which these scholars was? This is a genuine question if you think. Why today, their views and beliefs are totally against these glorious scholars of Islam about whom they use to cheat us by saying that they are following Salaf!! What kind of following is this based on total denial of the beliefs of Salaf & Khalaf but still deceiving Muslims by calling them polytheists but considering their own false flags as truthful?

The book al Kamil fi Du’afa al Rijal, is written by 365th hijri Imam, al-Hafidh Abi Ahmed Abdullah bin Addi al-Jarjani (d; 477H), is about those most glorious personalities among the knowledge and sciences of Hadith. This version is published by Darul Fikr Beirut and in Volume 1, Pp 403/4. Imam Jarjani is mentioning Syaduna Owais al-Qarni (radi Allahu Tala anho). Who was a famous Ta’biyee. a Sufi a Saint, He was also entitled by the time of the blessed era of Prophet (alehi salato wasalam), means he got that era, also the history of Islam tells us that, he was the only personality who was also blessed and Praised by Prophet alehi salato wasalam so much that, he asked to take care of Syaduna Owais (Rd) if I am not at home, although he never met Syaduna Prophet (alehi salato wasalam), but this is Prophet alehisalam himself who told that, people use to love me, and I Love Owais al-Qarni. This is such an honor that, Prophet alehisalatowasalam said though we didn’t met physically, and also in history books its been mentioned that, Prophet alehisalam envoy his two most superior and famous Khulfa al Rashidun, i.e, Syaduna Umar al Farooq (rd) and Syaduna Asadullahil Ghalib Ali (rd), towards Owais al Qarni (Rd) to ask him to supplicate for the Ummah. This privilage is not been given to anyone else in the history of Islam. and On these two pages, Imam hafidh ibn Adi gives a short biography of Syaduna Owais al Qarni who also considered as Muhadith too.
You will never find any salafi, wahabi, deobandi or ahle hadith at that time, but we find out a Sufi. Here i would like to explain little something which i think is important to know. the Word Sufism or Sufi is wrong term, actual word which is been used in this regard is (Tareeqat/Sufism). Why is it called Sufism now? In English language there are different terms of expressions, but there is one big problem that, if you want to call out someone e.g. an Elder citizen is standing in front and if you want to ask him something, we usually use the word (YOU) for that. No matter, the person is elder or younger. But in other languages there are different words of respect as per age difference. e.g in Urdu we use a word (AAP) as (You) for (Elders) and for others like friends or youngers we use (TUM) as (You). So. the word (SUFI) is taken by english terms because of ease for the usage, and because of vocabulary ease. e.g (S) is being pronounced while in reality (‘S’ufi is not from ‘Seen’ (س) word but from ‘Sa’d’ (ص) i.e. its not (Sufi . سوفی) but its (Sufi . صوفی) the, same is with ‘Tassawuf’ its not (تسوف) but its (تصوف) derived from ‘Sawf’. Anyway, because the words are in pronounciating called by (S) word in english, so they give it their own term for use of ease as (Sufism). Thus Point which i like to mention here is, that, Syaduna Owais al Qarni was a Sufi, everybody knows that, there are silsila’s towards him. Sufis and his followers in the matters of Tareeqat are still in the world from that time. Thus. Lahabi/Wahabi/Salfi etc etc etc. All are liars because Tassauwf was even at the time of Prophet (alehisalatowasalam) and even before the time of the Prophet alehi salato wasalam, e.g the story of Moses and Khidhr alehisalam’ Tassawuf was there. So saying that, Sufism is new innovation in Islam is totally bias and wrong and a gross lie, without any valid grounds to believe in.
I hope, this little explaining would be enough for those objections . And yes kindly don’t make us laugh by saying that now Imam hafidh ibne Adi was a barelvi sufi 😉 (lol) The real innovation is you (Wahhabism) in itself. Repent and be a Muslim not a (Lahabi).
Updated : Thursday April 2 / 2015 Start
Imam Abdul-Wahhab al-Sha’raani (Rta) writes in his book Mukhtasar al Itiqad li Imam al Bayhaqi (Short-(intro) to Belief of Imam bayhaqi). In this book, in the very beginning Imam Sharani is telling us about Imam Bayhaqi’s Teachers. The very first of them whose name is been written in this book is Imam Abu Abd’uRahman al-Sulami, who was not only a famous Muhadith among Shayukh of Muhadiseen but also very famous Sufi.
This thing again proves this fact that, each and every famous Scholar, Imam , Shaykh, Muhadith was and is not only Muqallad (Follower of a School of thought among 4 major schools) but also somehow related to Tassawuf i.e. (Wrongfully pronounced Sufism).
