RE: The first lesson back….

Assalaamu alaykum everyboby….

To put all your minds at rest….

In regards to the first lesson back after Ramadhaan and Eid, the ustaadh will be covering an intro to the 40 hadeeth and also be starting to discuss the first hadeeth inshaa’Allaah.

Please remember, those students who wish to download each hadeeth as you go along then the first hadeeth has already been uploaded – refer back to the ‘post‘ dated 12/09 inshaa’Allaah.

The lesson will be restarting….

21 09 2009

Assalamu ‘alaykum,

Alhamdulillah I am happy to say that the lesson on Fridays will be resuming on the 2nd of October 6pm sharp. We will be covering the study of Imam an-Nawawi’s forty hadith insha’allah.

NOTE: The recording of the lessons will be uploaded on the same night of the recording and will stay up on the site for the weekend only. After that the file will be deleted. However, this time the file will be embedded into the web site which will prevent anyone from downloading the file. This will make those that missed the lesson to make sure that they definitely listen to the lesson on time, otherwise people have a tendency to procrastinate and not end up listening to the lesson. I am sure we have downloaded many lectures in the past and told ourselves: “i’ll listen to it later” but never have!!

Please take some time to do the participate in the poll as well.

A new page is added….THE 40 HADEETH

15 09 2009

Alhamdulillaah, the new page ‘THE 40 HADEETH’ has now been added in replacement of ‘the fiqh of Fasting’.

Please be sure to visit this page regularly as this is the latest subject you will be studying with the ustaadh inshaa’Allaah.

At present, the page has a brief biography on the great imaam’s life including some of his works and an introduction to his 40 hadeeth written by himself (RA).

More things are to follow insha’Allaah like the text of each hadeeth which will be uploaded each week or on completion of each hadeeth as you go along and any other information relevant to the subject itself.

‘FIQH OF FASTING’ is to be removed….

12 09 2009

Assalaamu Alaykum….

Just to make you all aware, the page ‘FIQH OF FASTING’ will be removed as the month of Ramadhaan approaches its end (I am sad to say) and will be replaced with a new page entitled ‘THE 40 HADEETH’ inshaa’Allaah.

Within this new page you will find a brief introduction to the 40 hadeeth and each week I will be uploading the text of the hadeeth that you had or will be covering inshaa’Allaah, an example can be found below:


This is the first hadeeth of the fourty so I will not be uploading this text again. I hope this helps the student remember the text as you will all be required to memorize each hadeeth, plus it will help your note taking; thats if you all plan to type up your notes which I would highly recommend inshaa’Allaah.

Watch this space….

Who was Imaam an-Nawawee (RA)?

12 09 2009

Imaam Muhyee al-Din Aboo Zakariya Yahyaa bin Sharaf al-Nawawee, for short Imaam Nawawee, was born in the village of Nawa in the vicinity of Damascus in 631 A.H. (1233 A.D.). He grew up in Nawa and at the age of nineteen went to study in Damascus which was considered the center of learning and scholarship.

During his stay at Damascus, Imaam Nawawee studied from more than twenty celebrated teachers, regarded as masters and authorities of their fields and disciplines. He studied Hadith, Islamic jurisprudence and principles, syntax and Etymology from great scholars such as Abu Ibrahim Ishaaq bin Ahmad AI-Maghribi, Aboo Muhammad Abdur-Rahmaan bin Ibraaheem Al-Fazari, Radiyuddin Abu Ishaaq Ibraahem bin Abu Hafs Umar bin Mudar Al-Mudari, Abu Ishaaq Ibraaheem bin Isa Al-Muradi, Abul-Baqa Khalid bin Yoosuf An-Nablusi, and Abul-Abbaas Ahmad bin Salim Al-Misri.

Imaam Nawawee had endless thirst for knowledge. He used to read twelve lessons daily and wrote commentaries on every lesson. Whatever books he read, he would write marginal notes and explanations on each book. His intelligence, hard work, love, devotion and absorption in his studies amazed his teachers and they became fond of him and began to praise and admire him. Allaah had also conferred upon him the gift of fast memorization and depth of thought. Imaam Nawawee made full benefit of his God given qualities and potentialities and earned the highest degree of honor.

Imaam Nawawee led a life of singular piety, righteousness and simplicity. After over 20 years, he returned to his hometown. Soon after his arrival at Nawa, he fell ill and died in 676 A.H. (1278 AD).
Imaam Nawawee had a very short life but during this short period, he had written a large number of books on different subjects. Every work has been recognized as a valuable treasure of knowledge. Among them are:-

•Riysad as-Saaliheein
•Sharh Saheeh Muslim
•Sharh Sunan Abee Daawud
•Tahdheeb-ul-Asmaa was-Sifaat
•Mukhtasar at-Tirmidhee
•Tabaqat ash-Shafee’iyyah
•al-Tibyan fi adab hamalat al-Qur’aan
•al-Irshad wa’l-Taqrib fi ‘Uloom al-Hadeeth

His Sharh Saheeh Muslim is a standard text book for the study of Hadith while his al-Minhaj is used for the study of Fiqh.

NB. this is a very brief summary of the great shaykh’s life.
