Al ‘Ihsan fi Taqreeb Saheeh Ibn Hibban, compiled by Ali Ibn Balban (d. 739 AH/ 1339 CE), is the rearrangement of Saheeh of Ibn Hibban according to the topics of jurisprudence.

Saheeh Ibn Hibban is a collection of Hadith by Abu Hatim Muhammad Ibn Hibban (d. 965 CE) and is distinguished of being one of small number of collections intended by the respective authors to contain only authentic hadith. The actual name of this collection is al-Taqasim wa al-Anwa`, however, it is commonly referred to as Sahih ibn Hibban. The author utilized an innovative method in the arrangement of this work as it is not arranged in topical chapters nor is it based upon a musnad arrangement and is therefore difficult to navigate. Instead, it was arranged first by bab, or chapter, and then under each chapter, by naw`, or type. The book opens with a lengthy introduction.

Here is a link to  download the text in the original arrangement (7 volumes).

It is considered the fourth most authentic Saheeh collection along with the two Sahihayn and the Saheeh of Ibn Khuzayma by  some scholars. (al-Kattani and al-Suyuti are among those that held this opinion.)

Alternate version (first juz) – original arrangement
