This new release is a compilation of “Forty Hadith” by Imam Yusuf al-Nabahani on the virtues of fasting and Ramadan. It is supplemented with an adaptive commentary that draws upon traditional Islamic sources and the valuable insights of classical and contemporary scholars surveying the purpose of fasting, its telos, its mystical dimensions and the spirit of the act.
It also touches upon the legal positions of certain aspects of fasting. Consolidating between the social, spiritual and legal dimensions of the fast, the work makes an attempt to revitalise and make fasting comprehensible and relevant for contemporary Muslims, touching upon notions of detachment, self-discipline, restraint from the impulse to consume, religious moderation and servitude to Allah.
The author :
Imam Yusuf b. Isma‘il al-Nabahani (1265–1350 AH), hadith scholar, Sufi, jurist, judge, and biographer, was born in Beirut, Lebanon. A prolific author, al-Nabahani left behind a staggering collection of works in hadith, fiqh, theology, and most famously, poetry and prose in praise of our Master Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. Al-Nabahani was a paragon of prophetic love (‘ishq) and his works continue to exercise a profound influence on popular Muslim spirituality.
