A comprehensive work consisting of 2 Volumes commenting on al-Nawawi¦s Forty Hadith by Jamaal al-Din M. Zarabozo
With an Introduction by Prof. Jaafar Sheikh Idris. Here are just a few excerpts from Prof. Jaafar Sheikh Idris¦s comments to the work. The reader will not be studying explanations of the hadith in a narrow sense; the reader will, in fact, be introduced to many branches of the Islamic sciences: the different sciences of hadith, the science of textual interpretation, the science of jurisprudence, law, and even Arabic language. This is a great commentary on a great book. Brother Jamaal Zarabozo is to be congratulated for producing such a scholarly book. –Prof. Jaafar Sheikh Idris T
This commendable work offers a detailed analysis of forty of the most important hadith of the Prophet (S) for a Muslim to understand. Beginning with a biography of Imam Al-Nawawi, the author then explains each hadith in depth. Each hadith features the Arabic text, English translation, selected vocabulary in Arabic with English translation, general comments, circumstances behind the hadith, brief biography of the narrator and then a detailed commentary that explains the hadith’s major subjects. Each subject is studied from a logical and shariah point of view, deducing the lessons of the hadith for the reader. The author then familiarises the reader with the interpretations of the great scholars and provides his own interpretation. ‘An important study for any student of hadith’.
