The Riyad as-Salihin of Imam al-Nawawi, may Allah be pleased with him, is a well known and popular collection of hadiths covering various themes. The purpose of the book, in the words of the author, is:
'' I felt that I should compile a short collection of authentic
Ahadith which will be means for the traveller to the hereafter,
through which he will acquire internal and external ettiquette,
which will combine [Ahadith] which create a yearning [for
Paradise] and a fear [of Hell], and all other types of ettiquette
for those treading the path. These Ahadith will have lessons
on abstention (zuhd), [spiritual] exercise for the souls, the
development of character, the purifications and treatment for
the hearts, the protection of the limbs and removing their
waywardness, and other objectives of the 'arifin (those who
have truly recognised).''
About Imam al-Nawawi (d. 676/1277).
Imam Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, was born in the village of Nawa in Southern Syria. Imam an-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, Imam al-Nawawi was also the Imam of the later Shafi'i school of Jurisprudence, 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.
