A Treasury of Hadith: A Commentary on Nawawi's Selection of Prophetic Traditions

Compiled by Imam Nawawi

Commentary by Ibn Daqiq al-‘Id

Translated by Mokrane Guezzou




Imam Nawawi’s collection of 42 hadith brings together some of the most important and pivotal Prophetic traditions. Each tradition encapsulates a great rule of the religion of Islam, described by Islamic religious scholars as an ‘axis’ in Islam. The commentary of the great hadith master Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Daqiq al-‘Id is simple but erudite and was the first prepared on Imam Nawawi’s collection.
