The statements and actions of our Prophet Muhammad (s) contain much that we need: rules and advice, reminders, examples, warnings and encouragement. The collection of hadiths in Forty Hadiths on Good Moral Values by Yahya Ondigo contains some of the Prophet?s statements on positive ethics and attributes that all people-Muslims and non-Muslims-should strive to adopt in the way we deal with others; we need to work to incorporate these morals and principles into our daily habits. The author has commented on each hadith, presenting the issue in a way designed to help readers implement what they have learned. He writes: Demonstrating earnest leniency, tolerance and benevolence is the best way for the beauty of Islam to be seen in our own lives with our non-Muslim family members, neighbours, colleagues, workmates, schoolmates and all our fellow human beings that we interact with. Benevolence in whatever actions we undertake is the best form of da?wah that we can give to another person. This is because our actions speak louder than our words: no matter how much we try to convince people that Muslims are generous, peaceful, tolerant, kind, amicable, charitable, and so on, words alone are not convincing enough. If our moral values and compassion are not reflected in our actions, the words become meaningless. About the author Born into a strict Christian household in Kenya, Yahya Ondigo was always a man of faith. When his questions about Christian faith were left inadequately answered, Ondigo?s search for the truth led him towards Islam. Since then, he has pursued Islamic Studies, become a caller to Islam, and authored several books on Islamic topics, all under publication with IIPH, including My Journey from Christianity to Islam, Muslim-Christian Interactions, and Forty Hadiths on Poisonous Social Habits, which is the companion piece to this present book.

Muslims believe that Sahih Muslim is the most authentic book of Hadith after Sahih Al-Bukhari. The Muslim Scholars have agreed that all of the Ahadith in Sahih Muslim are authentic. Thus, Darussalam realized the great benefit of publishing Al-Hafiz Al-Mundhiri's summarized version of Sahih Muslim in the English language. Much care has been taken in rendering these Ahadith into a clear and simple style of modern English. May Allah accept our work. Summarized Sahih Muslim contains 2179 Hadith with 70 categories (referred as books). Both volumes combined contain 1208 pages with index and appendix.
By Imam Bukhari This book is an essential cornerstone of Islamic morality and is suitable for the general reader and the academic alike. Its author, IMAM BUKARI (194-256AH/ 810-70CE) is the most celebrated figure in Islamic literary history. Al-Adab al-Mufrad is an absolutely essential addition to every Islamic library.
The Complete Forty Hadith by Imam an Nawawi Imam an-Nawawi assembled his collection of forty-two ahadith together with the absolute minimum of fiqh and commentary necessary for people not to misunderstand their import. Ibn 'Uyaynah said, "Ahadith are misleading except to those who have fiqh." Ibn Wahb said, "Every man of hadith who has no Imam in fiqh is astray." Of the huge number of collections of forty hadith, the one by Imam an-Nawawi is undoubtedly the most famous and most enduring. This is, to our Knowledge, that work's first full translation into English and so we have called it "The complete Forty Hadith" of Imam an-Nawawi. About the author: Muhyid-Din Abu Zakariyya Yahya ibn Sharaf an-Nawawi was born in Muharram of the year 631AH / October 1233 CE. He was one of the principle scholars of hadith in his day, and an important fiqh in the Shafi'I madhhab. Apart from his great learning, he was known for his fearless counseling of the leaders of his time and his doing without in the world.He died in his father's house on Wednesday, 24th Rajab 676 AH
