40 Hadith of Imam Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuti

إِنّّما الأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ

 

 

Drawing near to Allaah Almighty is achieved through sincerity in the din for the sake of Allaah. The place of intention is the heart. Worship is only valid when accompanied by an intention. People vary in their obedience to Allaah and taqwa, not according to time and place. Intention (niyya) means the aim of the heart.

[Gharib al-Hadith 2:443]

‘Practical application’ is the common theme in Imam Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuti’s collection of hadiths. Whether on questions of legal judgment, virtuous action, or asceticism, you will find lessons that can be applied to many situations.

Imam Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuti was a towering ninth century Egyptian scholar and is considered the reviver of his era. He was a prolific writer and has over 600 titles to his name, many of which are encyclopedic in nature and cover almost every science of his day. He travelled extensively to gather hadith, including Morocco, Chad, Syria, the Hijaz, Yemen as well as India.

40 Hadith of Imam Nawawi

Introduction to the 40 Hadith of Imam Nawawi

Imam al-Nawawi’s collection of 40 Hadiths is one of the most important collections of hadiths we have today. Imam al Nawawi actually compiled a total of 42 hadiths for this collection, not 40. He was one of the greatest scholars of Islam and lived from 631 A.H. to 676 A.H, passing away at the age of 45. Allah (swt) granted him blessing and success in his work so that he could make great contributions to Islam before passing away at a relatively young age.

Imam al-Nawawi was a scholar in many different disciplines of Islamic studies. The vastness of his works in these different areas is so great that if an individual decides to study fiqh, hadith, spirituality, or Quran; one would need to pass through Imam al- Nawawi. Along with the 40 Hadiths, he authored Riyad al-Saliheen, Al-Adhkar, and commentary of Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari.

Imam al-Nawawi was one of the foremost figures of the Shafi’ madhab and the largest and most substantial book he wrote in this regard is called Al Majmua’ which is about 30 volumes. It is a work of comparative fiqh because he brings all of the opinions of different madhab’s on different issues together.
