The Sunna Project – Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation
The Sunna Project is the Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation’s flagship project. It seeks to assemble of the entirety of hadith literature—that is, the literature comprising narrations of the sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad . A select group of scholars of hadith are engaged in preparing definitive editions of hadith collections. This has involved the identification, study, and careful comparison of manuscripts from libraries and museums around the world.
- The first publication of the Sunna Project’s ongoing Hadith Encyclopedia is an eighteen-volume set comprising of the six canonical hadith collections (Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abi Dawud, Jamie Al Tirmithi, Sunan Al Nisai, Sunan Ibn Majah) and the Muwatta of Imam Malik ibn Anas.
- The second installment consists of a new fourteen-volume edition of the Musnad of Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal, containing tens of hadith that have not appeared in any previous printed edition of the work, but which are present in the earliest and most reliable manuscripts.
- The third installment comprises fully revised editions of the Sunan of Ibn Majah and Muwatta of Imam Malik, compiled from the earliest manuscript sources and editions of the Musnad Humaidi, the Sunan Al-Darimi, the Sunan Al-Darqutni, and the Mu‘ajam As-Saghir of Imam Al-Tabarani.
