Sunni regard this collection as sixth in strength of their Six major Hadith collections.[1] Nonetheless this position was not settled until the 14th century or later. Scholars such as al-Nawawi (d. 676/1277) and Ibn Khaldun (d. 808/1405) excluded the Sunan from the generally accepted books; others replaced it with either the Muwaṭṭaʾ of Imām Mālik or with the Sunan ad-Dārimī. It was not until Ibn al-Qaisarani's formal standardization of the Sunni cannon into six books that Ibn Majah's collection was regarded the esteem granted to the five other books.[2][3][4]
