Art/Literary - Religion / Islam (also classical Arabic)
Arabic term or phrase: الأمهات الست والموطأين
الأمهات الست مصطلح يطلق على كتب السنن الأربعة (سنن أبي داود والترمذي والنسائي وابن ماجة) إضافة إلى صحيحي البخاري ومسلم. وأعتقد أن أحد الموطأين هو للأمام إبن مالك وهو أول الكتب التي صنفت في علم الحديث وبعض آثار الصحابة.
ما هو إذا الموطأ الآخر وما ترجمة المصطلحين؟
شكرا

Explanation:
If you don't mind some help from an English speaker instead...
there is no standard translation for these terms in English in texts targeted at Muslims or a wider audience. Sometimes they are called the "Six Major Hadith Collections" or the "Six Authentic Hadith Collections" or something to that effect.

I'm not sure who the other Muwatta is attributed to but there's something about it here: www.islamweb.net/ver2/library/showalam.php?ids=12154

the translation in English is always just Muwatta (maybe you can explain it as a collection of hadiths)
