The Book of Sulaym ibn Qays is a Hadith collection by Sulaym ibn Qays, who entrusted it to Aban ibn abi-Ayyash

According to the Shi'a, the book "has received endorsement from five Infallible Imams" The author researched and verified events before he penned them so that their authenticity is incontrovertible The book was entrusted to only one person, Aban ibni abi Ayyash who was held to a solemn oath not to talk of the book during Sulaym’s lifetime and that after his death he would give the book only to trustworthy Shi'a1

Some Shia scholars consider the authenticity of the book to be validcitation needed, whilst others like al-Mufid question it's authenticity "

This book Kitab Sulaym is not reliable, and it is not permissible to act upon most of it, and confusion and tadlees has occurred in it, so the pious should not act upon everything that that is in it at all, and not rely on what is written in it or imitate its narrations"2

The author is also regarded as a trustworthy narrator to somecitation needed Ibn Al-Nadim, the famous 10th century CE book publisher, said that the book was among the well known books of the Shi'a3 No'mani has mentioned the book and the author in his book, Al-Ghaibah In fact, the book is known among some Shi'a books of hadith and rijal commentary on the life and trustworthiness of the hadith narrators have regarded both the book and its author with high esteemcitation needed

Currently, several variant manuscripts of this book exist, and it has been suggested that content was added to it and altered in it over time4 Furthermore, the oldest known copy, on which the majority of modern manuscripts are based, was written in 1676 CE4 This is problematic as it may also suggest that the true appearance date for the current form of the book, if indeed it existed prior to the rise of the Safavid empire, was from around the 10th century CE as it was only at this point in time that mention of it became commonly attributed to imams and scholarscitation needed
