I am looking for shia hadith collections,

According to wikipedia, the major shia hadith collections are the "Al-Kutub Al-Arbʿah" or the 4 Books

-Kitab al-Kafi

-Man la yahduruhu al-Faqih

-Tahdhib al-Ahkam

-Al-Istibsar

Does anyone know where i can get these in english?

Much help appreciated.

Here is book 1, 2, 3 and 4 of al-Kafi translated by Muhammed Sarwar http://www.al-shia.o...-kafi/index.htm I'm not quite sure where books 5-8 would be found/bought from - perhaps the Khoei Bookstore.

Not sure if Man la yahduru al-Faqih has been translated fully but here is a translation of some of it http://www.tashayyu....adiths/al-faqih

Not sure if Tahdhib al-Ahkam or al-Istibsar are online

Those 4 books actually comprise a single volume of the 8 volume work. Volumes 1 and 2, Usool al Kafi, have already been translated; the 8th volume, Rawda al Kafi, is set to be released in late June.

Thanks for that, btw, how many volumes is kitab al kafi?
