In his lifetime, Ibn-Daqiq wrote many books but this has become his most popular. In it he comments on the forty hadiths compiled by Yahya Al-Nawawi and known as the Nawawi Forty Hadiths. His commentary has become so popular that it is virtually impossible for any scholar to write a serious book about the forty hadiths without quoting Ibn-Daqiq.
This is the only book that combines the sagacity of Ibn-Daqiq and the vast knowledge of Al-Nawawi. The book was written centuries ago but its benefits are everlasting. The book is indispensible for anyone who wants to study Islam thoroughly and laconically from the masters themselves.
We translated from Arabic Ibn-Daqiq’s commentary in its entirety. We listed the text of each hadith first and followed it by the commentary. We added a detailed table of contents and thorough explanatory notes. A short introduction to the science of hadith by the translators is also included.
