Ibn Abi Hatem (may Allah have mercy on him) said: Ahmad ibn Salamah al-Naysaburi narrated to us that:

Ishaq Ibn Rahway (may Allah have mercy on him) got married – in Merv – to the widow of a man who had in his possession the books of al-Shafi’i (may Allah be pleased with him), and he did not marry her except that she had the books of al-Shafi’i with her.

He then authored Al-Jāmiʻ al-Kabīr based on the Kitab of al-Shafi’i, and Al-Jāmiʻ al-Saghir based on Jāmiʻ al-Thawri al-Saghir [1]

روى ابن أبي حاتم فقال : حدثنا أحمد بن سلمة النيسابوري قال : تزوج إسحاق بن راهويه ـ بمرو ـ بامرأة رجل كان عنده كتب الشافعي ، وتوفي، ولم يتزوج بها إلا لحال كتب الشافعي ـ رضي الله عنه ـ فوضع جامعه الكبير على كتاب الشافعي، والجامع الصغير على جامع الثوري الصغير .
