This book is a compilation of some of the wise sayings of Prophet Muhammad (s), the companions, and of the pious predecessors and ascetics. Reflecting on these wise sayings and heeding these counsels will assist in infusing us with the requisite awareness and fervour to prepare for the Day of Judgement. Verily, we are all in need of such counsel, for our Day of Judgement begins not when the world ends, but when our life comes to an end, which is indeed imminent, as the Prophet stated.

The author is well known for his commentary on Sahih Al-Bukhari, and he has divided the book in a truly unique format. It is full of wisdom and gems and an absolute must for every Muslim household.


Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani




Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani was born in Cairo in 1372. He began his studies at the age of five and completed the memorisation of the Quran by the age of nine. A Shafi scholar and hadith master, he studied under renowned scholars in Cairo, Yemen and the Hijaz. Known as Shaykh al-Islam, scholars travelled from faraway lands to take knowledge from him. Appointed to the position of Chief Judge several times, he authored more than fifty works on hadith, history, biography, Quranic exegesis, poetry and Shafi jurisprudence; among the most famous of them is his fourteen-volume commentary on Sahih al-Bukhari called Fath al-Bari. He passed away in Cairo in 1449.

These hadiths are so perfect. I don't think there is any other book that can be well written with a great compilation of the related hadith for the hereafter
