TIRMIDHI [Abu 'Isa Mahommed ibn 'Isa ut-Tirmidhi] (d. 892), Arabian traditionalist, was born at Tirmidh on the Jihun. He was a scholar of the traditionalist Bukhari, and in his search for traditions travelled through Khorasan, Irak and Hejaz. His al-Jami' us-Salhzh is one of the six canonical collections of traditions. In it he admitted every tradition that had ever been used to support a legal decision, indicating the doctrine it supported and mentioning the doctrines opposed to it. It was published at Bulaq in 1875. He also wrote the Kitab ush-Shama'il on the character and life of Mahomet (printed at Calcutta, 1846). (G. W. T.)
