Following are some books in refutation of Mahmud Sa’eed Mamduh Ash-Shafa’i Al-Misri. To know about him read this.
By Shaykh Muhammad Nasirud-Deen Al-Albani
Al-Maktaba Al-Islamiya, Oman, Ed. 1409AH
Although the book is regarding the different topic but the Shaykh has refuted some of Mahmud Sa’eed’s point in the Muqaddimah (pg.49-71). He mainly pointed out the ignorance of Mahmud Sa’eed in his book Tanbeeh Al-Muslim with regards to the opinions of Ulama and verdicts of his own Shuyukh. While he critize the Shaykh for weakening some reports in Sahih Muslim and accuses him of contradicting the Ijma’, but actually his elders like Ahmed Al-Ghumari, Abdullah Al-Ghumari and Al-Kawthari, whom he highly respects, were foremost in criticizing some famous reports of Sahihayn. Then he discusses some reports on the issue.

 Rid’ Al-Jani al-Muta’addi ‘ala al-Albani
This book was written in response of “Tanbeeh Al-Muslim” by Mahmud Sa’eed which was written to show that Al-Albani broke Ijma’ by criticizing the hadith of Sahih Muslim. Mahmud Sa’eed, in his book, listed several hadith which according to him were declared weak by Shaykh Al-Albani. Shaykh Tariq in this book showed that in most cases Shaykh Al-Albani would only declare the isnad to be weak while he would declare the hadith to be Sahih. Many a time he would state this in the same place which was quoted by Shaykh Al-Albani, but Mahmud Sa’eed would ignore it and quotes only the part which suites his agenda. Among fifty narrations mentioned by Mamduh, only ten are those which were declared to be weak by Shaykh. Shaykh Tariq then goes on to discuss all the ten hadith one by one. The book is very beneficial as this is not just a refutation, but it also has lots of beneficial discussion on hadith based topic especially regarding the authenticity of Sahihayn.

This book discusses the hadith of Malik Ad-Daar. It discusses the narration in detail. The author attempted to prove the hadith to be weak due to seven reasons, as follows:
(1) Malik ad-Daar was Majhool al-Haal
(2) This was reported lonely by those narrators who were not expected to bore the knowledge of such incident.
(3) Irsaal [Malik ad-Daar was not the direct witness to this incident]
(4) Possibility of Disconnection between Abu Salih and Malik ad-Daar
(5) ‘an’ana of Al-A’amash
