The Book of Hadith: Sayings of the Prophet Muhammad from the Mishkat Al Masabih (Paperback)
by Charles Le Gai Eaton (Compiler), Mahmoud Mostafa (Translator)

Drawn from the Miskkat al Masabih, this collection of the Prophet Muhammed's sayings includes both the English and Arabic text and provides an intelligent introduction to Islam.

Among the included topics are purification, prayer remembering death, pilgrimage, jihad, clothing, visions, and words that soften the heart

This selection of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad was made by the internationally respected British Muslim scholar, Charles le Gai Eaton. The Book of Hadith captures not only the practical and profound wisdom of the Prophet, but his human side as well. Contains Arabic text as well.

The Mishkat has enjoyed wide popularity in the world of Islamic learning Since 516 AH when it was first compiled by Waliuddin Abu Abdullah Mahmud Al-Tabrizi
Al-Tabrizi has identified at the end of every Hadith the source or sources from where the particular Hadith was taken. Thus, by doing so, he managed to overcome shortcoming of not mentioning the isnad (chain of authorities of the Hadith).
Most of the Hadith are from the Sahih Sitta. (the six Authentic Hadith Books).

The Collection has been arranged Subject wise to make it easy for the common person to use it in the process of regulating ones life in the light of the hadith of the Prophet (SAW)

Mishkat al-Masabih is divided into twenty-nine books (kutub), however this collection covers selection from 20 of the Books 

Al-Tabrizi was a renown muhaddith (scholar of Hadith) of his time. He was well-versed in the intricacies of the Arabic language and rhetorics. It is unfortunate, however, that not much is known about his life. Al-Tabrizi is to be commanded for successfully improving upon Al-Baghawi's Masabih al-Sunnah.
