I have finished this beautiful work aHaadiith sahlah. Mashaa Allaah it is really
After completing the three Madinah books, I didn't feel ready to try anything
that was Arabic only at first, but now I'm so glad I did. It’s ideal for the student
to do, straight after completing the Madinah books. For a start, it revises so
much from them, not just the grammar principles, but also lots of vocab too.
The 20 beautiful aHaadiith the noble Shaykh, Dr V Abdur Rahim, has chosen
are delightfully easy to understand and his explanations of them are even
easier. There is a narration here for every Muslim, to affect the hearts and
characters. And they can be implemented by all, straightaway.
I did not expect that I would be studying the aHaadiith, in their original Arabic,
so quickly. This was quite exciting! And I couldn't help but notice that the
Shaykh, Hafizahullaah, has slipped in many ways to help the student learn each
Hadiith thoroughly. After each Hadiith, the student is directed to re-read the
Hadiith several times, dissect and analyse it and also write it many times
because of the variety of ways in which the questions are posed, thus making
you constantly returning to it, ensuring that it sticks in the mind firmly, bi-
idhnillaah. One is memorising the aHaadiith without even trying to! (This was
especially pleasing to me, because formal memorisation is not my most
favourite task in the world!)
I cannot recommend this book highly enough for all students of Arabic. It is
such a lovely book and was truly a pleasure to study, memorise and
understand. May Allaah grant the author Jannatul Firdaws.
