40 Hadith Nawawi

Cover the Entirety of this Seminal Text in 6 Days

Nawawi's Forty Hadith (Arabic: al-arbaʿīn al-nawawiyya) is a compilation of forty two hadith by Imam al-Nawawi, most of which are from the six canonical collections of hadith.

This collection has been valued over centuries due to its succinctness, each hadith included in it being a foundation of the Islamic faith. The author, Imam al-Nawawi, says about this, “each hadith is a great fundament of the faith, described by the religious scholars as being ‘an axis of Islam’ or ‘half of Islam’ or ‘a third of it’ or the like, and to make it a rule that these forty hadith be classified as sound (ṣaḥīḥ).”
This work is the most representative of the arbaʿīniyyāt genre of hadith.
