Assalamu ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
Please find a full PDF copy of Hasr al-Sharid, the amazing thabat (list of the established full chains of transmission in various works) of Shaykh Muhammad Abid Sindi (may Allah have mercy on him), one of the greatest Hanafi masters of hadith who passed away in 1257 A.H.

Jazakallah Khair for this.
I had heard about this edition previously as the editor took ijazah and would come to listen to hadith from Shaykh Abd al-Rahman bin Abi Bakr al-Mulla in al-Ahsa. Knowing full well of his not being Salafi.
Shaykh Abd al-Rahman’s grandsons told me they were appalled to see this editors attack on Shaykh Abid al-Sindi’s aqidah in the introduction (p.63), and were not happy with his behaviour, not least when they had to go to non Salafi ulema like Shaykh Abd al-Rahman al-Mulla to listen to hadith and gain ijazah, and after gaining it proceeded to attack the author of the work they were editing.
They also mentioned that many people would come from Riyadh to listen to hadith from Shaykh Abd al-Rahman due to his short isnad, and during lessons he would criticise Salafi’s at times, with none of the Salafi students daring to respond.
Indeed it is a great travesty that so many books of this type are being published by editors of such intolerant viewpoints. The attack of the editor of this book in particular, fails to substantiate his claim of ‘Allamah Sindi’s “deviance” and suffices to say that his association with Sufis and Ash’aris is proof enough.
A student at the hadith specialization program in Karachi which I was blessed to be a part of was using ‘Allamah Sindi’s thabat extensively as he prepared the thabat of our Shaykh ‘Abd al-Halim Chishti (may Allah lengthen his life). He commented that he had a number of issues with this edition of Hasr al-Sharid but I believe his criticism was primarily aimed at the editing work and typos that are always proportionally more annoying in works of hadith and asnad where precision and accuracy is so key.
On another note, Shaykh Kakazai, have you put any more thought into the translation of Imam Nahlawi’s book?
Firstly second I am not a Shaykh, secondly unfortunately I am no way near the level of being able to translate a work such as Imam al-Nahlawi’s book.
Perhpas it could be suggested to publishers, I did mention it passing once I believe to a publisher, but it did not receive a warm response so I did not bother again.
As for Athbat would you be able to point me towards any in Word? I am looking to compile one for one of our teachers and I am terribly slow at typing, I thought this might be a useful way of getting it done.
Thank you for this post.
The link for the first vol appears to be not working. Can you help?
