The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), said "Whosoever memorizes and preserves for my people forty hadith relating to their religion, Allah will resurrect him on the Day of Judgment in the company of jurists and religious scholars.” A prolific scholar by the name of Imam Nawawi took this hadith to heart, and it drove him to put together what has become one of the most cherished shorter collections of rigorously authenticated hadiths.
The hadith in this collection are unique among hadith because these are of the Messenger of Allah’s most comprehensive utterances, each one of which is eloquent and full of meaning.
