Tayalisi, Abu Dawud Sulayman b. Da'ud b. al-Jarud (133-241/750-818 also d. 203/813?), Musnad, Hyderabad, 1321 AH.
Sezgin calls him Abu Dawud al-Tayalisi (GAS 1:96f). His death date is uncertain: 203/818-819 or Rab. I 204/Aug.-Sept. 819 as reported in Ibn Hajar, Tahdhib al-Tahdhib 4:185.
Contains 2767 hadiths with full isnads on the authority of 281 Companions, and is said to be the first musnad. Tayalisi was a mawla who heard hadiths from many people, including al-Thawri. The Musnad was in fact compiled by his student, Yunus b. Habib. Siddiqi (1993) says that this early work contains traditions on a wide variety of subjects, but hadiths on praise of specific individuals (fadh'ail genre), reports of miracles, and predictions of the future are rare. Siddiqi adds that the popularity of the work waned after the 8th century. -BS -TM
