What is the 40 Nawawi Hadiths course?

This course is an explanation of the famous 40 hadith Nawawi book by Imam Abu Zakariyyah Muhyi ad-Deen ibn Sharaf an-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him). The hadiths give us a better understanding and a closer look at how the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) lived his life.

The book consists of 42 hadiths, originally, twenty-six were collected by Ibn Salah (may Allah have mercy on him), and the remaining sixteen hadiths were added by Imam An Nawawi(may Allah have mercy on him).

In the introduction of the book imam al Nawawi wrote:

“It has been related to us from Ali bin Abī Ṭālib, `Abdullāh bin Mas‘ūd, Mu‘ādh bin Jabal, Abūd-Dardā’, Ibn `Umar, Ibn ʽAbbās, Anas bin Mālik, Abū Hurayrah and Abū Sa`eed al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with them) through numerous chains with varied narrations that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Whoever preserves for my nation forty ḥadīths concerning its religion – Allah will resurrect him on the Day of Resurrection among the jurists and scholars.” In one narration it says, “…Allah will resurrect him as a jurist and scholar,” and in that of Abūd-Dardā’, “…I will be for him, on the Day of Resurrection, an intercessor and a witness.” In the narration of Ibn Mas‘ūd it says, “…he will be told, ‘Enter by any of the doors of Paradise you wish,'” and in that of Ibn `Umar, “…he will be registered among the scholars and resurrected among the martyrs.” But ḥadīth scholars have agreed that it is a weak ḥadīth despite its many narrations.”

From this hadith, we can see the importance of learning and memorizing the hadiths of the Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him).


At the end of the introductory of the 40 hadith Nawawi book, Imam An Nawawi wrote:

“Everyone desiring the Hereafter ought to know these ḥadīths for what they contain important information and because they alert one to all acts of obedience [to Allah], which is clear to whoever reflects upon it.”


Here’s One of the most touching hadiths that were mentioned in the 40 hadith Nawawi

On the authority of Anas, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) say: “Allah, the Exalted, has said, ‘O son of Ādam, as long as you supplicate Me and implore Me, I will forgive for you whatever issued from you, and I will not mind. O son of Ādam, even if your sins reached the clouds of the sky and then you sought My forgiveness, I would forgive you. O son of Ādam, even if you come to Me with nearly the earth’s capacity of sins and then meet Me without associating anything with Me, I will come to you with nearly its capacity of forgiveness.'”

From the hadiths we learn about all the aspects of life, and here’s a hadith that teaches us a lot:

On the authority of `Umar (ra) who said: “While we were one day sitting with the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) there appeared before us a man dressed in extremely white clothes and with very black hair. No traces of journeying were visible on him, and none of us knew him. He sat down close by the Prophet (ﷺ) rested his knees against the knees of the Prophet (ﷺ) and placed his palms over his thighs, and said:

“O Muhammad! Inform me about Islam.”

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) replied: “Islam is that you should testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger (ﷺ), that you should perform salah (ritual prayer), pay the zakah, fast during Ramadan, and perform Hajj (pilgrimage) to the House (the Ka`bah at Makkah), if you can find a way to it (or find the means for making the journey to it).”

He said: “You have spoken the truth.”

We were astonished at his thus questioning him (ﷺ) and then telling him that he was right, but he went on to say, “Inform me about Iman (faith).”

He (the Prophet) answered, “It is that you believe in Allah and His angels and His Books and His Messengers and in the Last Day, and in fate (qadar), both in its good and in its evil aspects.”

He said, “You have spoken the truth.” Then he (the man) said, “Inform me about Ihsan.” He (the Prophet) answered, “It is that you should serve Allah as though you could see Him, for though you cannot see Him yet He sees you.”

He said, “Inform me about the Hour.” He (the Prophet) said, “About that the one questioned knows no more than the questioner.”

So he said, “Well, inform me about its signs.” He said, “They are that the slave-girl will give birth to her mistress and that you will see the barefooted ones, the naked, the destitute, the herdsmen of the sheep (competing with each other) in raising lofty buildings.”

Thereupon the man went off. I waited a while, and then he (the Prophet) said, “O `Umar, do you know who that questioner was?” I replied, “Allah and His Messenger know better.” He said, “That was Jibril. He came to teach you your religion.” [40 Hadith an-Nawawi]
