Dr Pipes,

Oh for sure. This hadith is anachronistic as all of al-Ahadith. However, it makes it to Sahih al-Bukhari so it is Sahih.

Notice that the very early Islamic literary sources, the Qur'an included, are silent about the Turks. Then we hear about the Turks from a non Arab (al-Bukhari) who lived hundreds of miles away from al-Hijaz, 2-3 centuries after the death of Muhammad, and he must have been familiar with the Turks as an ethnic group and mortal enemy
