Forty Hadith on Islam
Imam Abu Bakr al-Ajurri [d.360h]
A number of scholars throughout Muslim history have penned their
respective compilation of Forty Hadith books. Imam al-Ajurri’s kitab
ularba` in Hadithan is among the earliest. It is a highly regarded text
for Muslims to study and memorise, for it addresses fundamental aspects
of religion, with particular focus on Creed, Pillars of Islam, the Halal
and Haram as well as Piety and righteousness.
Imam al-Ajurri originally compiled this work for the benefit of new
Muslims, thus including within it, foundational essentials of the noble
Islamic faith. The author may Allah have mercy upon him, has commented
on each hadith, presenting the subject matter in a simplified way
designed to assist readers in memorising the Prophetic narrations, and
implementing what they learn in an easy manner.
This refreshing work is a must for Muslims of all levels of knowledge
and competency; requiring attention from the young and old. Useful also
as a teaching aid in schools, or as ideal gift for new Muslims and those
commencing their journey in pursuit of sacred knowledge.
