Description :

Al-Adab al-Mufrad, an anthology of 1329 hadiths (recorded actions and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, ?), is a treasured work in Islamic history by one of its most respected scholars, Imam Bukhari (809-870) may Allah be pleased with him, whose role in presenting the most trust-worthy teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, ?, place him head and shoulders above all others in this area.

In preparing this selection of hadiths Imam Bukhari aimed to set out a guide for moral conduct, based on the Prophetic example, and that of Prophet Muhammad's, ?, closest Companions. All of the hadiths are directly related to the standards of manners and morality Islam wants to prevail, and Muslims throughout the world have been guided by it since its preparation over a millennium ago.

What distinguishes the present work is that it includes a contemporary commentary on each topical collection of hadiths, clearly emphasising the relevance of the Prophet's, ?, teachings in our modern and complex societies. This pioneering addition marks it out as perhaps the first English work commenting on and explaining a full anthology of hadiths.

*NB: The translator and author of the commentaries, Adil Salahi [non-ASWJ], has a history of work in Seerah and Hadith, and he has written extensively on both. His commentary is derived from Fadl-Allah as-Samad fi Tawdih al-Adab al-Mufrad, by the Sunni scholar Shaykh as-Sayyid 'Umar b. Hamid b. 'Abd al-Hadi Fadl-Allah al-Jilani, a teacher of al-Jami'ah al-'Uthmaniyyah in Hyderabad. As with most translations we recommend one seeks guidance with a qualified teacher/scholar.
