al-Tirmidhī, Abu ʿĪsā Muḥammad (d. c.889 (AH 275)). Author of one of the six authoritative collections of ḥadīth, which is known sometimes as Ṣaḥīḥ, but more often as Jāmiʿ. He was attentive to the reliability of the isnād, as well as the content, and, as a result, his collection is shorter (and less repetitious) than those of al-Bukhārī and Muslim.
