Al-Arba'in Of Abd Al-Rahman Jami (Chihil Kalima)Dar al-Turath (South Africa)
Why KitabCrate thinks you should read this book: There is an established tradition of Hadith scholars to compile 40 hadith. Why 40? It's a comprehensive number allowing for not too large of a work, yet not too little. 40 Hadith on a subject remain a digestible number to the average reader and student.

by Abd al-Rahman Jami (Author)
The Arba'in or Chihil Kalima of Jami is a choice collection of Traditions of the Blessed Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace). The main emphasis is on cultivating high qualities of character. The compiler, a great Persian scholar and poet, further enriched his beautiful Hadith selection with pithy and eloquent paraphrases in verse. In this edition, Turath Publishing presents the original Arabic and Persian texts together with English translations of both. These are complemented by an introductory account of Jami and his works, and also by notes on both the content and the sources of the Hadiths.
