Sahih al-Bukhari's Criteria: An Epistemological Perspective

On February 18, 2021, Columbia University hosted an online event with Issam Eido (Vanderbilt University) and Mohammed T. Safi (Ibn Khaldun University) as part of its Middle East Institute's Sharia Workshop. Professors Eido and Safi discussed their co-authored paper, "Sahih al-Bukhari's Criteria: An Epistemological Perspective," described by Columbia as "an innovative study of the Hadith corpus...The authors consider connections between Islamic methods and conceptions and those of contemporary western thought on 'testimony.'" Jonathan Brown of Georgetown University, Scott Lucas of the University of Arizona, and Asma Sayeed of UCLA served as commentators.
