THE 40 HADEETH

Lesson 64 (20/04/11) Hadith 42 (final lesson):

NOTE: The lessons are updated on Wednesday nights at approximately 11pm GMT.

Who was imaam an-Nawawee (RA)?

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:-

•Riyaad as-Saaliheein

•Sharh Saheeh Muslim

•Sharh Sunan Abee Daawud

•Kitaab-ur-Rawdah

•Tahdheeb-ul-Asmaa was-Sifaat

•Arba’een

•Mukhtasar at-Tirmidhee

•Tabaqat ash-Shafee’iyyah

•Muhimmatul-Ahkaam

•al-Adhkaar

•al-Tibyan fi adab hamalat al-Qur’aan

•al-Irshad wa’l-Taqrib fi ‘Uloom al-Hadeeth

•al-Minhaj

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.

Imaam an-Nawawee’s introduction to his forty hadeeth

All Praise is due to Allaah, the Lord of the Worlds, the [One Who] Sustains the Heavens and Earths, Director of all that is created, who sent the Messengers (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon all of them) to rational beings, to guide them and explain the religious laws to them with clear proofs and undeniable arguments. I praise Him for all of His bounties. I ask Him to increase His grace and generosity. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah alone, who has no partner, the One, Who Subdues, the Generous, the Forgiving. I bear witness that our leader Muhammad is His servant and Messenger, His beloved and dear one, the best of all creation. He was honoured with the Glorious Qur’aan that has been an enduring miracle throughout the years. He was also sent with his guiding Sunnah that shows the way for those who seek guidance. Our leader Muhammad has been particularized with the characteristic of eloquent and pithy speech, and simplicity and ease in the religion. May the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him, the other Prophets and Messengers, all of their families and the rest of the righteous.

To proceed :

We have narrated, through many chains (isnaad, pl. asaaneed) and various narrations, from Ali ibn Abee Taalib, Abdullaah ibn Mas’ood, Mu’aadh ibn Jabal, Abu ad-Dardaa, [Abdullaah] ibn ‘Umar, [Abdullaah] ibn ‘Abbaas, Anas ibn Maalik, Abu Hurairah and Abu Sa’eed al-Khudree – May Allaah be pleased with all of them – that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said : “Whoever preserves for my Ummah forty hadeeth related to the religion, Allaah will then resurrect him in the company of the pious and the scholars.” Another narration states : “Allaah will raise him as an erudite and learned scholar”. In the narration from Abu ad-Dardaa, it is stated : “On the Day of Resurrection, I will be an intercessor and witness for him”. In the narration from Ibn Mas’ood it is stated that the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said : “It will be said to him ‘Enter Paradise through any door you wish'”. In the narration from ibn ‘Umar, one finds the words : “He will be recorded among the company of the scholars and will be resurrected in the company of the martyrs”. [However] The scholars of hadeeth agree that, although this hadeeth has numerous chains, it is weak [ie. da’eef, and hence cannot be used as a sharee’ah proof].

The scholars (may Allaah be pleased with them) have compiled innumerable works of this nature [ie. collections of forty hadeeth]. The first one that I know of who compiled such a work was Abdullaah ibn al-Mubaarak [a taabi’ee, rahimahu Allaah]. After him came ibn Aslam at-Toosee, a pious scholar. Then came al-Hasan ibn Sufyaan an-Nasaa’ee, Abu Bakr al-Aajurree, Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Ibraaheem al-Asfahaanee, ad-Daaraqutnee, al-Haakim, Abu Nu’aim, Abu Abd-ir-Rahmaan as-Sulamee, Abu Sa’eed al-Maleenee, Abu ‘Uthmaan as-Saaboonee, Abdullaah ibn Muhammad al-Ansaaree, Abu Bakr al-Baihaqee and countless others both from the earlier and later times.

I have turned to Allaah for guidance and prayed to Him while compiling these forty hadeeth, following the example of those Imaams and guardians of Islaam. The scholars have agreed that it is permissible to act in accordance with weak hadeeth that deal with the virtues of good deeds [ie not weak hadeeth that deal with rulings – ahkaam – or acts of worship]. Nonetheless, given that fact, I have not relied upon that [weak] hadeeth [mentioned above] only in compiling this work. Instead, I am following the statement of the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) found in an authentic hadeeth : “Let him who was present among you inform those who are absent”. The Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) also said : “May Allaah make radiant the man who has heard what I said, preserved it in his memory and conveyed it in the way that he heard it”.

[Note : What an-Nawawee is saying here is that many of the scholars before him have made collections of forty hadeeth, and hence he is following their good example and not simply following the weak hadeeth quoted above, thus showing that he considers it improper to base ones actions upon weak hadeeth alone.]

Scholars have compiled forty hadeeth on faith and belief (usool), on practical matters (furoo’), on jihaad, on austerity (zuhd), on etiquette (adaab), and even on sermons (khutbahs). All of these [collections] were concerning righteous aims. May Allaah be pleased with those who sought them. However I have found it best to collect together forty hadeeth which are more important than all of those. These forty hadeeth incorporate all of those separate topics. In fact, each hadeeth is by itself a great general precept from the foundations of the Religion. Some scholars state that all of Islaam revolves around these hadeeth. Some have said, about a particular hadeeth, that they are one-half of Islaam, one-third of Islaam and so forth.

I have committed myself to including only authentic hadeeth (saheeh or hasan) in these forty hadeeth. The majority of them are from Saheeh al-Bukhaaree or Saheeh Muslim. I have mentioned them without their chain of narrators in order for it to be easier to memorize them and thus more [people] will be able to benefit from them, Allaah willing. After the hadeeth, I included a section on the meanings of the obscure expressions found in the hadeeth.

Everyone who desires and looks forward to the Hereafter must be familiar with these hadeeth because they cover the most important aspects of the religion and offer direction to all forms of obedience of Allaah. This is clear to anyone who ponders these hadeeth.

I rely only upon Allaah and I entrust my affair only to Him. To Him is all Praise and Grace, from Him is Guidance and protection from error.

Hadeeth No.1


On the authority of Ameer ul-Mu’mineen (the Commander of the Faithful), Aboo Hafs `Umar ibn al-Khattaab radiAllaahu anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam say:

“Actions are but by intentions and every man shall have only that which he intended. Thus he whose migration (Hijrah to Madeenah from Makkah) was for Allaah and His Messenger, his migration was for Allaah and His Messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated.

It is related by the two Imaams of the scholars of Hadeeth, Aboo `Abdillaah Muhammad ibn Ismaa`eel ibn Ibraheem ibn al-Mugheera ibn Bardizbah al-Bukhaaree and Aboo-l-Husain Muslim ibn al-Hajjaaj ibn Muslim al-Qushairee an-Naisaabooree, in their two Saheehs, which are the soundest of compiled books [i.e. the most truthful books after the Book of Allaah, since the Qur’aan is not ‘compiled’].

An ameeril m’umineena abee hafsin Umara ibn al-Khattaab (RA) qaala: sam’itu Rasoolillaahi (SAW) yaqoolu: Innamaa’al-a’maalu binniyyaati wa innamaa likullim’ree’in maa nawaa. faman kaanat hijratuhu ilallaahi wa Rasoolihi fahijratuhu ilallaahi wa Rasoolihi wa man kaanat hijratuhu lidunyaa yuseebuhaa awi’m’ra’atin yankihuhaa fahijratuhu ilaa maa haajara ilayhi.

Hadeeth No.2


Also on the authority of `Umar (radi Allaahu ‘anhu), who said:

“One day while we were sitting with the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) there appeared before us a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black; no signs of journey were to be seen on him and none of us knew him. He walked up and sat down in front of the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam), with his knees touching against the Prophet’s (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) and placing the palms of his hands on his thighs he said: “O Muhammad, tell me about Islaam.”The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Islaam is to testify that there is no deity worthy of worship but Allaah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, to perform prayers, to give zakaah, to fast in Ramadaan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House if you are able to do so.”He said: “You have spoken rightly”; and we were amazed at him asking him and saying that he had spoken rightly.He (the man) said: “Tell me about Eemaan.”He (the Prophet, sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “It is to believe in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, and the Last Day, and to believe in divine destiny (qadr), both the good and the evil of it.”He said: “You have spoken rightly.”He (the man) said: “Then tell me about Ihsaan.”He (the Prophet, sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “It is to worship Allaah as though you see Him, and if you do not see Him, then (knowing that) truly He sees you.”He said: “Then tell me about the Hour.”He said: “The one questioned about it knows no better than the questioner.”He said: “Then tell me about its signs.”

He said: “That the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress, and that you will see barefooted, naked destitute shepherds competing in constructing lofty buildings.”

Then he (the man) left, and I stayed for a time. The he (the Prophet, sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “O `Umar, do you know who the questioner was?”

I said: “Allaah and His Messenger know best.”

He said: “It was Jibreel, who came to teach you your religion.”

It was related by Muslim.

Hadeeth No.3


On the authority of Abee `Abd ir-Rahmaan `Abdullaah, the son of `Umar ibn al-Khattab (radiAllaahu ‘anhumaa), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) say:

Islaam has been built on five [pillars]: testifying that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, establishing the salaah (prayer), paying the zakaah (obligatory charity), making the Hajj (pilgrimage) to the House, and fasting in Ramadaan.

Hadeeth No.4

On the authority of Abee Abdir Rahmaan Abdillaah ibn Mas’ood (ra) who said: “the Messenger of Allaah (saw) who is the truthful one and the believed narrated to us:

Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother’s womb for forty days in the form of a nutfah (a drop), then he becomes an ‘alaqah (clot of blood) for a like period, then a mudghah (morsel of flesh) for a like period, then there is sent to him the angel who blows his soul into him and who is commanded with four matters: to write down his rizq (sustenance), his life span, his actions, and whether he will be happy or unhappy (i.e. whether or not he will enter Paradise).By the One, other than Whom there is no deity, verily one of you performs the actions of the people of Paradise until there is but an arms length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him, and so he acts with the actions of the people of the Hellfire and thus enters it; and verily one of you performs the actions of the people of the Hellfire, until there is but an arms length between him and it, and that which has been written overtakes him and so he acts with the actions of the people of Paradise and thus he enters it. [Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim.]

Hadeeth No.6

On the authority Abee Ab’dillaahi al-Nu’maan ibn Basheer (ra) who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (saw) say: “That which is lawful is clear and that which is unlawful is clear and between the two of them are doubtful [or ambiguous] matters about which not many people are knowledgeable. Thus, he w avoids these doubtful matters certainly clears himself in regard to his religion and his honor. But he who falls into the doubtful matters falls into that which is unlawful like the shepherd who pastures around a sanctuary, all but grazing therein. VErily every king has has a sanctuary and Allaah’s sanctuary is His prohibition. In the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if it be sound, all the body is sound and which, if it be diseased, all the body is diseased. This part of the body is the heart”.

Hadeeth No.8

On the authority of the son of Umar (may Allaah be pleased with both of them) , the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, establish the prayer and give the ama. Then, if they do that, their blood and wealth will be protected from me – except in accordance with the right if Islaam. And their reckoning will be Allaah, the exalted”.

Eat of good things that We have provided for you. Then he the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) mentioned a man who after a long journey is dishevelled and dust-coloured.

Be mindful of Allaah and Allaah will protect you. Be mindful of Allaah and you will find him in front of you. If you ask, ask of Allaah. If you seek help, seek help from Allaah. Know that if the nation were to gather to benefit you with anything except that which Allaah has already recorded for you. If they gather to harm you by something, they would not be able to harm you by anything except what Allaah has already recorded against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried”.

Recorded by at-Tirmidheewho said: “It is a hasan saheeh hadeeth”.

“Be mindful of Allaah, you will find himin front of you. Become beloved to Allaahduring times of prosperity, He will know you in times of adversity.

Hadeeth No.21


On the authority of Abee Amr – and it also said Abee Amrah – Sufyaan ibn Abdillaah (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: I said, “O Messenger of Allaah, tell me a statement about Islaam such that I will not have to ask anyone other than you”.

Recorded by Muslim

Hadeeth No. 22


On the authority of Abee Abdillaah Jaabir ibn Abdillaah al-Ansaaree (may Allaah be pleased with both of them) who said: “A man asked the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), “Tell me if I were to perform the obligatory [prayers], fast in Ramadhaan, treat the lawful as permissible and treat the forbidden as unlawful and I do not add anything to that, would I enter Paradise?” He [the Prophet] answered “Yes”.

The meaning of “treat the forbidden as unlawful” is to stay away from it and the meaning of “treat the lawful as permissible” is to perform them believing that they are permissible.

Hadeeth No. 23

On the authority of Abee maalik al-Haarith ibn Aasim al-Ash’aree (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“Purification is half of faith. The phrase al-Hamdulillaah (‘All praise be to Allaah’) fills the scale. The phrases Subhaanallaah (‘High is Allaah above every imperfection and need; He is pure and perfect’) and al-Hamdulillaah (‘All praise be to Allaah’) together fill – or each fill – what is between the heavens and the earth. Prayer is a light. Charity is a proof. Patience is brightness. The Qur’aan is either an argument for or against you. And everyone goes in the morning and sells himself, either freeing or destroying himself”

Wa Alaykumus’Salaam wa RahmatUllaahi wa Barakaatuh,

Im affraid the current lectures (40 Hadeeth) are not available to download. You can however listen to every lecture via this blog. Every lecture is uploaded after the lesson and can be allocated at the top of this page.

I can’t emphasis how important it is that you attend the lessons in person even if you live far! Many of the ikhwah who attend do not live local and come via public transport.
