The Book Muntakhab Ahadith has been translated by a board of Islamic Scholars. It is a ready reference to guide the mankind towards the righteousness and enjoining the good and forbidden all evil deeds for the development and construction of an ideal society.

Translation of its Preface written by Fazilatus Sheikh Abullhasan 'Ali Nadavi Rahimullahu,

All praises to the Sustainer of the worlds, and grace, 
honour and salutations on the Chief of Apostles and Seal of 
Prophets, Muhammad, his family, companions and those who 
followed him in an excellent fashion and invited mankind 
towards Allah, till the Day of Resurrection. 

This is a reality which can be stated without any ambiguity 
and exaggeration, that in the Islamic world of today the most 
powerfull, useful and all-encompassing effort, is the struggle of 
the Tablighi Jamaat whose center is situated at the Tabllghi 
Markaz Nizamuddin, Dehli (India) (I) . The scope of this effort 
and its impact is not restricted to the Indian subcontinent, or 
Asia, but extends to many continents and to a host of Islamic 
and Non-Islamic states. 

The history of such campaigns and revolutionary or 
reformative movements shows that, after passage of a period of 
time, or when the scope of the effort enlarges greatly (specially 
when, by means of it, the attainment of certain advantages and 
leadership becomes apparent) then such weaknesses, unwanted 
objectives and neglect of the originalgoals set in, which reduce 
or even totally wipe out the true influence of the work. 

(l) In this assertion and testimony, there is no negation of the importance of all 
those useful efforts and movements which cater to the reality and needs of the 
present times, and which also create the ability to counter the prevailing trials 
and tribulations. Here, the objective is only to acknowledge and highlight the 
effectiveness and vastness of the efforts being made from the Tablfghi Da'wat 
and its Movement, in a positive manner. 

However,the Tabllghi effort (as far as the knowledge and 
observations of the writer go) has, to a large extent been saved 
from these tribulations up to now. 

It is quite evident that the nature of this movement is based 
on giving others priority over oneself (despite one's dire 
needs), a passion for sacrifice, a quest for the pleasure of Allah, 
a desire for reaping rewards in the Hereafter, respect and 
honour of Islam and Muslims, humility and submissiveness to 
Allah, the proper fulfillment of religious obligations, with a 
desire for further advancement, a preoccupation with the 
remembrance of Allah, refraining as far as humanly possible 
from unprofitable and unnecessary preoccupations and 
undertaking protracted journeys, while enduring all sorts of 
hardships for the pleasure of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala have 
become a regular practice. 

These special characteristics and distinctions of this work 
attributable to the sincerity of its first preacher (Sheikh 
i ammad Ilyas Rahimatullahu 'alaihi), his preoccupation 
^ <th Allah, his prayers, struggle, sacrifice and above all, the 
acceptance of this work by Allah the Exalted. Beside this, it is 
also a consequence of those principles and preconditions which 
were declared essential by its first preacher from its very 
inception, and on which he always insisted and propagated. To 
think about the meanings and responsibilities inherent in the 
Kalimah, to acquire knowledge of the virtues of fulfilling all 
forms of obligatory worship, a consciousness of the virtues of 
knowledge and the remembrance of Allah along with a 
preoccupation with the remembrance of Allah, respect for 
Muslims with an appreciation and fulfillment of their rights, to 
correct the motives behind every action, so that it is done 
sincerely and solely for the pleasure of Allah, to refrain from 
all that is irrelevant, and an enthusiasm and consciousness of 
the virtues of travelling in the path of Allah. These are those 
elements and characteristics which have protected this 

movement from becoming a political, material organization, 
geared for obtaining material benefits, fame and authority, and 
it has remained a purely religious movement aimtMl at attaining 
the pleasure of Allah. 

These principles and elements, which have been 
considered essential for this movement, have been derived 
from the Qura'n and Sunnah. They serve as its guardians to 
obtain the pleasure of Allah and protect Deen (religion) and 
their sources are the Qura'n and Prophetic practices and 

There was thus a need that all the relevant Qura'nic verses 
and anadlth (Prophetic practices and sayings) be compiled in a 
book. Praise be to Allah, that the second preacher of this 
movement of inviting towards righteousness, Sheikh 
Muhammad Yusuf (son of the first preacher, Sheikh Ilyas 
Rahimatullahu 'alaihi) who had a very profound and 
comprehensive knowledge of books of Ahadith, has collected 
all the relevant principles, rules and precautions from their 
original sources in the form of a book. He has been so 
comprehensive and extensive that this book is not merely a 
compilation of these principles rules and instructions, but 
perhaps an encyclopedia, in which without being selective or 
brief, all of these have been mentioned with their relative 
importance. It is perhaps the will of Providence that the 
writer's fortunate and worthy grandson Sheikh Sa'ad, (May 
Allah prolong his life and bless him with further works of this 
nature), has assumed the responsibility of publishing this book 
for general benefit. May Allah Ta'ala grant acceptance to this 
effort and service, and make it most beneficial. And this is not 
hard for Allah.
