Q: I have a pdf copy of Sahih Al- Bukhari which is translated by Dr Muhsin Khan. His hadith can be found on I just wanted to inquire if his translation is correct and if I can follow hadith translated by him.


A: We do not know much of this person. The little that we know of him makes us feel that he is not a reliable person. Furthermore, these kitaabs are more for academic purposes. They will only be appreciated if they are learnt under some well-experienced person.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
