The mausoleum of Imam Bukhari.
Imam Bukhari began studying hadith in the year 205 (A.H.). He memorized the works of [‘Abdullah] ibn al-Mubaarak while still a child. He traveled with his mother and brother in the year 210 after having heard the narrations of his region. He began authoring books and narrating hadith while still an adolescent. He said, “When I turned eighteen years old, I began writing about the Companions and the Followers and their statements. This was during the time of ‘Ubaid Allah ibn Musa (one of his teachers). At that time I also authored a book of history at the grave of the Prophet at night during a full moon".
At the age of 16, together with his brother and widowed mother, made the pilgrimage to Mecca. From there he made a series of travels in order to increase his knowledge of hadith. He went through all the important centres of Islamic learning of his time, talked to scholars and exchanged information on hadith. It is said that he heard from over 1,000 men, and learned over 600,000 traditions.
After 16 years absence, he returned to Bukhara, and there he drew up his al-Jami' as-Sahih, a collection of 7,275 tested traditions, arranged in chapters so as to afford a basis for a complete system of jurisprudence (fiqh) without the use of speculative law.
His book is highly regarded among Sunni Muslims, and considered the most authentic collection of hadith, even ahead of the Muwatta Imam Malik and Sahih Muslim of Bukhari's student Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj. Most Sunni scholars consider it second only to the Quran in terms of authenticity. He also composed other books, including al-Adab al-Mufrad, which is a collection of hadiths on ethics and manners, as well as two books containing biographies of hadith narrators. - Wikipedia
They were curious to know where I'm from. The lady in purple with brown sandals got a young boy to ask. She thought I'm French!
Most of the time, locals think I'm from Africa, India, or Kazakhstan. One asked if I'm Chinese. Today, two Afghans tried to be funny, "Are you from Afghanistan?" For the first time, no one thought I'm from the Philippines. Hope I didn't speak too soon about that.
Faces of Couture del Mar: Changed my life to make something I really love. Over 25 years I have worked successfully as an architect in a male-dominated world. However, with an infinite amount of work, effort and external constraints.
Now, my husband and I have left everything in Austria and have been traveling on a sailing catamaran for almost 1 year, only our 5 children follow us again and again. It is not always easy to live on a sailing catamaran ⛵️but now I am trying to live the longed for freedom.
I am constantly on the lookout for my second love, the perfect material to design the true "Couture del Mar" for you.
