Out of 300,000 ahadith which he evaluated, only 4,000 approximately were extracted for inclusion into his collection based on stringent acceptance criteria.

Sahih Muslim is one of the Sunni Six Major Hadith collections, collected by Imam Muslim.
Muslim was a student of Bukhari and Ahmad ibn Hanbal.
Shia Muslims dismiss many parts of it as fabrications or untrustworthy, and they note that it includes many hadith that his teacher did not include in his Sahih Bukhari, for example the mutawatir Hadith of the two weighty things.
Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (285 words)
His book is considered among the most authentic collections of hadith, second only to al-Bukhari's work (a minority of scholars consider Muslim's work more authentic).
Estimates on how many hadiths are in his books vary widely from 12,000 to 3,033, depending on whether they remove the duplicates, consider only the text (matn) or the isnad, the chain of narrators, as well.
His book had lots of later scholars write commentaries on, the most famous are the one by Nawawi of Damascus, and al-Qadi 'Iyad of Maghreb.
