Authenticity of Saheeh Bukhaari and Saheeh Muslim

Q: Can we believe that Saheeh Muslim and Saheeh Bukhaari are 100% reliable or do they have some mistakes?

A: You should believe that they are absolutely reliable. However, every person is not in the position of interpreting and understanding these kitaabs correctly. It is not right for people to directly go into Bukhaari Shareef etc. and arrive at their own deductions.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
