Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, chose from among His slaves the best of the scholars and gave them the honor of conveying the Prophet's (PBUH) sayings First and foremost among these upright scholars are the noble Companions (Sahabah), who learned the Revelation from the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and then conveyed it precisely to those who came after them among the Followers (Tabi'een).
Then the Tabi'een transmitted it to those who came after them, until there came the time of documentation when the Imams of hadiths compiled the books known as Jawami`, Masanid, and Sunan.
One of the greatest compilations of the Sunnah and books of hadeeth is the Musnad by Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal, which is organized into compilations of the Hadiths narrated by each Companion (Sahabi), starting with the 'ashra mubashshara.
