Description :

Riyad as-Salihin (The Gardens of the Righteous), is one of the most famous works of the prolific author and Hadith scholar Imam Abu Zakariyyah Yahyah ibn Sharf  al-Nawawi, may Allah be pleased with him, [d.1277CE].

This work of Imam an-Nawawi has become so famous that it is commonly found in most Muslims' homes. In this compilation, along with taking the prime Hadith references known as the Six Books (Al-Kutub as-Sitta) as the basis, he related authenticated Hadiths with their sources, and took the relevant verses from the Qur'an at the beginning of every Chapter. The hadiths he preferred to include in his collection relate to :

        ***Enhancing Morality,
        ***Purifying Hearts,
        ***Protecting Body-parts from Sin,
        ***Being a Means for Happiness in this World and the Next.
        ***Encouraging Goodness, warning against Evil, and revealing the Outward and
              Inward Manners of Journeying on the Spiritual Path,
        ***Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil.

This collection of authentic hadiths can be briefly defined as a book of enhancing morals, mannerliness, encouraging goodness, and warning against the evil. This work consists of the wisdom of the noble Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, setting the criteria about the manners to be observed by individuals. Since the time it was published, Riyad as-Salihin has been a must read on the way to deepening in Islamic teaching.

This work we present to you with pride is an abridged version of the full compilation. It consists of 876 hadiths chosen from among more than 1800 hadiths on 18 main topics. There are so many different annotated versions of this classic. In our version, we rather tried to translate the intended meaning to be derived from the hadiths, rather than making a word for word translation. Annotations are added to clarify the meaning when needed. The Qur'anic verses and hadiths are presented with their sources.
