Narrated by Abu Sa’id al-Khudri from Imam al-Suyuti’s al-Jami’ al-Saghir:
من حفظ على أمتي أربعين حديثا من سنتي أدخلته يوم القيامة في شفاعتي
“Whoever preserves forty hadith for my Ummah from my Sunnah, I will intercede for him on the Day of Judgment.”
The American Forty Hadith Project is a new effort to make Muslim scholarship not only available to the American Muslim (and non-Muslim) public, but to also make it speak to their reality. I hope to have this in a book format shortly so in the meantime, enjoy these podcasts:
إن الدين النصيحة إن الدين النصيحة إن الدين النصيحة, قالوا لمن يا رسول الله؟ لله وكتابه ورسوله و أئمة المؤمنين وعامتهم و أئمة المسلمين وعامتهم
“Tamim al-Dari, may God be pleased with him, related, ‘al-Din is al-Nasihah [repeated three times].’ ‘In regards to whom O’ Messenger of God?’ ‘To God, to His Book, His Messenger, the leaders of the Believers and the rank-and-file as well as the leaders of the Muslims and the rank-and-file.'”
Recorded in Sunan Abu Dawud, #4944.
