40 Hadith An-Nawawi


Recently, I asked my husband to buy me the entire set of Bukhaari. Although he bought it for me, he pointed out that reading a commentary of a collection of ahaadeeth would be much more beneficial. So alhamdulillah I have decided to start reading An-Nawawi’s 40 hadith.

The one I’m reading is this 3 volume set by Jamaal al-Din M. Zarabozo. InshaAllah for my own benefit (and others’!) I’ll be putting up each hadith in English and also what gems I gained from it. You can see the layout in the link below (“layout for each hadith”). Each post is pretty much a summary of all of the parts I felt were most important in the sections. I may occasionally supplement with notes from classes I have taken or books, but inshaAllah those additions will be specified 🙂

Also, if you’re interested, see the subpages on the side.
