The popularity of al-Bukhari as an expert of hadith is indisputable; he reached the top position, his name has become a guarantee of hadith validity; in addition, he is also well known as an expert of Islamic law(faqih). However, his expertise is often disregarded. In fact, the authority of al-Bukhari in Islamic law reaches its peak as an absolute mujtahid or mujtahid mutlaq. This phenomenon raises some questions: firstly, is al-Bukhari affiliated with one of maddhabs of established Sunni law? When a mujtahid reaches his absolute mujtahid rank, following another methodology is forbidden; there is a need for constructing Fiqh methodology. Secondly, does al-Bukhari have his own methodology? An absolute mujtahid has an opportunity to establish his own madhhab which is ordained by its name. The third question is why is Bukhari’s madhhab unpopular amongst Sunni madhhab? This article explores the fact that al-Bukhari is not affiliated to certain maddhabs, and the methodology formation as well as other factors underlying the failure in the formation of Bukhari’s Madhhab.
