The following is a response to SlaveOfAhlubait’s article entitled: Biased Bukhari – 2, which can be found here.
SoA, in this article, quotes a couple of narrations in an attempt to show that Al-Bukhari used to hide the names of a Sahabi that is accused of a sin.
This accusation against Al-Bukhari has been raised by ShiaPen previously and we have responded to this accusation in another refutation, which can be found here.
In short, Al-Bukhari has narrated this tradition along with another scholar of his time, Abu Bakr Mohammad bin Abi Khalid Al-Sawma’ee Al-Tabari, which therefore means that Al-Bukhari did not err in this narration, nor did he tamper with it. Al-Thahabi has a biography in Tareekh Al-Islam of the latter. However, he has named him Abu Bakr Mohammad bin Khalid Al-Sawma’ee Al-Tabari accidentally.
