Description
:


Imam Nawawi, alayhi ar-rahman, says in the preface: ''

The purpose of this book is to make clear to you how to travel this path. It will show you how to take on the excellent qualities I have described. Allah willing, I will mention some of the pearls and realities of Gnostics.

It will be composed in such a way so as not bore the reader and so as to render its subject matter easy to remember. Allah willing I will quote some of the uplifting sayings of the salaf."



Imam Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi (d. 676/1277), may Allah be pleased with him, was born in the village of Nawa in Southern Syria. Imam Nawawi spent most of his life in Damascus where he lived in a simple manner, devoted to Allah, engaging single-mindedly in worship, study, writing and teaching various Islamic sciences.


Although best known for his works in hadith, Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi was also the Imam of the later Shafi'i school of jurisprudence (fiqh), and widely acknowledged as the intellectual heir to Imam Shafi'i, may Allah be pleased with him. He was a renowned  scholar and jurist who dedicated his life to the pursuit of Islamic learning.


Imam Nawawi died at the young age of 44 years, leaving behind him numerous works of great importance.
