Since the time it was published, Riyad as-Salihin has been a must read on the way to deepening in Islamic teaching.
This abridgement of of Imam al-Nawawi's Riyad al-Salihin (The Meadows [or Gardens] of the Righteous) is based on the format of Mukhtasar Riyad as-Salihin, by Shaykh Yusuf ibn Isma'il an-Nabhani. In addition , it incorporates the commentary on its hadiths found in Nuzhat al-Muttaqin; Sharh Riyad as-Salihin, by Dr. Mustafa Sa'id Khin, Mustafa al-Bugha, Muhyi ad-Din Mistu, 'Ali ash-Shirbaji, and by Muhammad Amin Lutfi.
