The Complete Forty Hadith HB
Imam an-Nawawi assembled his collection of forty-two ahadith together with the absolute minimum of fiqh and commentary necessary for people not to misunderstand their import.
Ibn 'Uyaynah said, "Ahadith are misleading except to those who have fiqh."
Ibn Wahb said, "Every man of hadith who has no Imam in fiqh is astray."
Of the huge number of collections of forty hadith, the one by Imam an-Nawawi is undoubtedly the most famous and most enduring.
This is the commentary to the Forty Hadith by Imam an-Nawawi himself, and to our knowledge, this is the work's first, full translation into English and so we have called it The Complete Forty Hadith of Imam an-Nawawi.
Imam an-Nawawi compiled his collection of forty hadith with the minimum of fiqh and commentary necessary so that they would not be misunderstood by people. Ibn 'Unaynah said, 'Ahadith are misleading except to those who have fiqh'. This collection of ahadith contains essentially useful knowledge.
