If you want to buy just one hadith book (and every Muslim home must have at least one) this should be it. It is hard to think of Maulana Manzoor Naumani, Rahimahullah, without thinking of this seminal work by him. He is a compassionate teacher whose lucid explanations and pertinent comments are indispensable for a serious hadith student.

This latest edition is a pleasure to look at and delight to read. This is a complete translation of the entire Urdu original version. Overall the book is still very valuable because of the great content.

About The Author

Maulana Manzoor Naumani, Rahimahullah was a compassionate teacher whose lucid explanations and pertinent comments are indispensable for a serious hadith student. 

A contemporary of Sheikh Syed Ali Nadwi and had very close links with Nadwa. He Settled in Lucknow after he had begun his Deeni work in Bareilly. On the insistence of its, authorities, he taught hadith at Nadwa and remained a member of the administration for a very long period.

Moulana No'mani’s speech and writings speak volumes about his erudition and all-round knowledge of tafsir, hadith, fiqh and the deviated sects. Having obtained his knowledge from the likes of Allamah Anwar Shah Kashmiri, it is no wonder that he was so thoroughly versed and immersed in knowledge. He remained engrossed in Deeni activity till the end of his life

He also established the journal Al-Furqan, now under the editorship of his son Maulana Khalilur Rahman Sajjad Nu'mani.
