Sunan Abu Dawood.

Sunan Abu Dawood, containing some 4,800 hadith, is his principal work. They are usually numbered after the edition of Muhammad Muhyi al- Din `Abd al-Hamid (Cairo: Matba`at Mustafa Muhammad, 1354/1935), where 5,274 are distinguished. Some of his hadith are not sahih, but he claimed that all hadith listed were sahih unless specifically indicated otherwise; this has been controversial among Islamic scholars, since some, such as Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani believe some of the unmarked ones to be da'if as well.
