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-Jdmi' us-Safrih 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 ushShama'tt on the character and life of Mahomet (printed at Calcutta, 1846). (G. W. T.)
