Among the different types of gambling, some forms are very clear, every one considers it wrong, whereas some kinds of gambling are not considered wrong by the peoples. Whatever the name of gambling is, it is illegal and immoral, because changing name doesnot change its reality. Every type of gambling creates destruction in society and economy and brings various evils with it. Gambling makes man greedy, miser, lover of money, jealousy, wastage of time and money.

This study delving in his Commentary brings to the fore the depth and breadth of his scholarship in various branches of Islamic sciences including usūl, fiqh and Arabic eloquence. It further shows how skillfully he applied his knowledge of these sciences in elaboration of the most authentic Ḥadīth work meticulously compiled by Muḥammad b. Ismaʿīl al-Bukharī (194-265 AH). The study concludes that his methodology in elaborating terminology of usūl, fiqh and Arabic eloquence is one of the best works of its kind. Hence, commentary may well be considered as one of the significant sources for the study of Saḥīḥ al-Bukharī.
