Sahīh al-Buchārī is the common name of a collection of hadiths that goes back to the Islamic scholar Muḥammad ibn Ismāʿīl al-Buchārī (d. 870). The correct title of the work is al-Jāmiʿ as-sahīh / al-Ǧāmiʿ aṣ-ṣaḥīḥ /'The Comprehensive Healthy'. The work ranks first among the canonical six hadith collections and is held in the highest esteem in Sunni Islam to this day. In terms of its authority and sanctity, it stands here directly behind the Qur'an.

The first publication of Bukhārī’s al-Jāmi‘ al-sahīh in the Islamic world was in India in 1270/1853. However, the most famous and acknowledged edition of it was carried out by al-Azharī scholars in Egypt in 1313/1896 with the instruction of Sultan Abdul Hamid (d. 1918). Just after this publication, Mehmed Zihni Efendi (d. 1913) published Sahīh’s first edition in Istanbul. In these editions, the famous Yūnīnī version of Sahīh was used in Istanbul.
