Product Description

Shaykh al-Hadith Mawlana Muhammad Zakariyya Kandhlawi (may Allah shower His mercy upon him) made a unique contribution to the field of Hadith throughout his blessed life. He authored hundreds of books on different aspects of Islam including his most famous and most read book among the masses, Fadhaa'il A'maal (virtues of good deeds) or the Tablighi Nisaab. It has been translated into 20 or more languages.

Shaykh al-Hadith, the title which deservedly became used more than his own name and was given to him by his Shaykh, spiritual guide and mentor, Mawlana Khalil Ahmad Saharanpuri (may Allah shower His mercy upon him), author of the famous commentary of Sunan Abu Dawood, Badhl al-Majhud, authored works which reminded the reader of scholars like Al-'Asqalani, Al-'Ayni and An-Nawawi et al (may Allah shower His mercy upon them all).  

Awjaz al-Masaik Ila Mu'atta Imam Malik is one of the most compre­hensive commentaries on the Mu'atta' of Imam Malik in terms of the science of hadith, jurisprudence, and hadith explication. Shaykh Zakariyya provides the summaries of many other commentaries in a clear, intellectual, and scholarly way, dealing with the various opinions on each issue, mentioning the differences of opinions among the various scholars, and comparing their evidences. This commentary, written in Arabic, has won great acclaim from a number of Maliki scholars. It also encompasses spiritual explanation of the hadiths and on occasions, Shaykhs own masterly and unique interpretation of hadith.
Shaykh Abu al-Hasan 'Ali Nadwi relates that Shaykh Muhammad 'Alawi al-Maliki said, 'When he (Shaykh Zakariyya)  reports the ruling and evidences of the Maliki school (in this book], we Malikis are astonished at the accuracy and integrity of the report.... If the author had not mentioned in the introduction of [his] book that he was a Hanafi, I would not have known that he was Hanafi, but would have definitely concluded that he was a Maliki, since in his Awjaz he cites by-laws and derivatives of the Maliki school from their books that even we have a hard time obtaining.
This new print has been commissioned by the Shaikh's famous student, Shaikh Taqi al-Din Nadwi, Professor of Hadith at Al Ain university, Abu Dhabi. It consists of 18 volumes with Two colour text. The text will be in red during the commentary, it is hardback and printed in Beirut by Darul Qalam.
Some of the authors other classical Hadith works include:
Lami‘ al-Dirari ‘ ala Jami‘ ’l-Bukhari which is his editing, arrangement and commentary on his father's compilation of unique remarks and observations on Sahih al-Bukhari presented by Shaykh Rashid Ahmad Gangohi. 

Al-Abwab wa ’l-Tarajim li ’l-Bukhari: An explanation of the chapter headings of Imam Bukhari’s Sahih. Assigning chapter headings in a hadith collection is a science in itself, known among the scholars as al-abwab wa ’l-tarajim (chapters and explanations). In it, the compiler explains the reasons for the chapter heading and the connections between the chapter headings and the hadiths quoted therein. It is well known that the commentators of Sahih al-Bukhari have paid special attention to the titles therein, in tune with the Arabic saying: “The fiqh of Bukhari is in his chapter headings” (fiqh al-Bukhari fi tarajimihi). Shaykh Zakariyya not only quotes and compiles what has been mentioned by other scholars like Shah Wali-Allah al-Dehlawi and Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani, but also correlates and clarifies these opinions and presents findings from his own research in many instances.

 Khasa’il Nabawi Sharh Shama’il al-Tirmidhi: Composed in Urdu, a commentary on Imam Tirmidhi’s renowned work Al-Shama’il al-Muhammadiyya, a collection of hadiths detailing the characteristics of the Messenger (upon him be peace and blessings.)
Juz’ Hajjat al-Wida‘ wa ‘ Umrat al-Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) : A comprehensive Arabic commentary on the detailed accounts of the pilgrimage (hajj) of Allah’s Messenger (upon him be peace) . It includes the details of any juridical discussions on the various aspects of pilgrimage, giving the locations, modern-day names, and other details of the places the Messenger of Allah (upon him be peace) passed by or stayed at.
