Limited-Edition Facsimile Of Sultan Abdul Hamid II’s Publication Of Sahih Al-Bukhari Al-Shareef

Now Available To Own: A Collector’s Limited-Edition Facsimile Of Sultan Abdul Hamid II’s Publication Of Sahih Al-Bukhari Al-Shareef

The Sultan edition was commissioned by Sultan Abdul Hamid II and printed in 1313 AH / 1895 CE in Egypt in nine volumes. A group of sixteen erudite scholars from Egypt, led by the Grand Shaykh of al-Azhar, Hassunah al-Nawawi reviewed it; and later Shaykh al-Islam, the Ottoman highest religious authority in the Muslim World, approved it, alongside another committee of the most learned scholars in Istanbul.

What made this edition unique was the fact that it was printed according to the famous Yunini manuscript – the most authoritative copy of Sahih al-Bukhari. This, made the Sultan’s edition the most reliable copy of Sahih al-Bukhari. Since the Sultan printed only 1000 copies His edition became a piece of antiquity, with several generations of scholars growing up hearing about it, but never seeing it.

This new edition is a reproduction by facsimile of the Sultan’s edition with its beauty and authenticity based on a rare and flawless copy housed in the library of Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi – to which the Shaykh generously granted access during the reproduction of this facsimile.

Sahih al-Bukhari is soundest book in Islam after the Quran, therefore, it must be given due respect and reverence, and produced with luxury and augustness.

In This facsimile edition, Signatora presents the 10 volumes of Sahih Bukhari full of endless beauty and unmatched elegance.

Wait… there is more.

Every reader of Sahih al-Bukhari must have this Introduction.

A precious copy that you will treasure for ever.
