About the Class
On explaining his purpose for compiling Riyad al-salihin (The Garden of the Righteous), Imam Nawawi said, ‘I saw it fitting to collate a concise work on authentic Prophetic traditions comprising traditions that will serve its reader as a path to the Hereafter; that will procure a treatment of his inward and outward manners; and that gather [traditions] both of encouragement and of caution, and of all other types of manners for those treading the spiritual path: on renunciation, training the lower self, refining character, purifications and cures for the heart, protecting and rectifying the limbs, and all other topics of interest to those who desire knowledge of their Lord.’
Over the duration of this course, we will proceed with a thorough reading and explanation of these Prophetic traditions (hadith) compiled by Imam Nawawi, based upon the summary of Riyad al-salihin prepared by Sheikh Dr Nur al-Din al-‘Itr and Dr Mahmud Al-Misri.
This term, we shall be continuing from Chapter 45. ‘ Visiting the people of goodness, sitting in their gatherings, having their company, loving and hosting them and seeking their prayers.’
