Hadith Authentication works of Nasir ud Din Albani and its criticism:

Shaikh Nasir ud Din Albani was a 20th Century scholar of Hadith (Muhadith) who did tonnes of work on hadith authentication and critically analysed almost all major works. He even pointed out a some weak narrations in Sahih Bukhari as well. A number of other independant researchers agree with his findings as well.

However, he faced some criticism on his works from scholarly circles as well. 
In the spirit of encouraging original research work and enable viewing information from both sides, we are presenting a few relevant resources below.

In order to reach correct conclusion, one should do an un-biased review of arguments presented by Albani and those of his critiques in the light of Usool-al-Hadith.

And Allah knows best.
