Al-Wafi: A Thorough Commentary of the Forty Nawawiyyah
Shaykh Mustafa Dib Al-Bugha and Shaykh Muhyi Ad-Din Dib Mistu
Mahdi Lock (translation)
Al-Wafi is a well-known Arabic book on the commentary of forty hadiths compiled by the great jurist and hadith scholar Imam Abu Zakariyya Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi, commonly known as al-Nawawi or Imam Nawawi (d. 676 AH).
The book is widely used in schools and religious classes. It has been translated into several languages and this work is the first in English. It is authored by two of Damascus' most respected scholars, Shaykh Mustafa Dib Al-Bugha and Shaykh Muhyi Ad-Din Dib Mistu.
This book is ideal for those who wish to read for personal edification as well as those who would like to conduct classes. Every hadith is followed by a detailed explanation of its importance, its vocabulary, followed by its figh rulings, along with other insights that can be gleaned from it.
It is hoped that as the reader reads through the text, his understanding and appreciation of the Prophet's words ﷺ will deepen, and he will also come to see the immense wisdom in Imam an-Nawawi's choices. If Allah so wills, the reader will emerge with a broader and more thorough understanding of Islam.
