The Noble Prophet (blessings of Allah be upon him and his family) has said:
مَنْ حَفِظَ عَـلـى أُمَّتِـي أَرْبَعِينَ حَدِيثًا يَـنْتَفِعُونَ بِهَا بَعَـثَهُ اللهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَقِيهاً عَالِـماً.
“A person from my nation who memorizes forty traditions pertaining to those issues of religion which one is in need of, will be resurrected by Allah on the Day of Judgment as a person with deep insight into the faith and as a scholar.”
In following the above hadith, The World Federation of KSIMC has embarked upon publishing a series of booklets of 40 ahadith (traditions) on different subjects. The ahadith that have been selected from various sources are short, simple, easy to understand and to memorize. It is envisaged that the booklets will not only be useful for scholars, teachers and students, but will be of benefit to the Ummah at large.
This particular collection of ahadith was compiled and translated into English by Muhammad Reza Tajri.
The World Federation extends its appreciation to Br. Muhammad for his efforts in the translation of this work. May Allah (Free from imperfections and Exalted is He) accept this work as a further attempt by The World Federation to propagate Islam.
