This book Awareness & Apprehension is the translation of Imam Al-Mundhiri’s At-Targheeb Wat-Tarheeb Min al-Hadith al-Sharif. The Title can also be translated as ‘Encouragement and Warnings’
An excellent Classical collection of Hadith dealing with virtues of various good deeds and warning to avoid some Evil Deeds, highly useful to anyone in the work of Enjoining the good and forbidding the Evil (Da’wah)
Ahaadith in this book are selected from different source books of Hadith on different subjects, like deeds that fetch varying degrees of reward, and wrongs that call for retribution.
The translation is in simple English and whereever necessary, a brief commentary is added.
Any observation on the line of transmission that the compiler has made is retained only in the Arabic text, and scholarly discussion of a literary nature is generally done away with, and so are the Juristic verdicts.
The Ahaadith are narrated only to give glad tidings and to warn – to create awareness and to admonish, so that one may be encouraged to do good deeds and refrain from evil deeds.
In translating the Ahaadith, the translations of eminent scholars Like Hadhrat Shaykh Zakariyya or the author of Mazaahir al-Haq had been under observation The translation, therefore, is helpful not only to put the ummah on righteousness but also to preach and invite people and pursue the mission of Da’wah.
This Darul Isha’at edition has serial numbers of Hadith in sequence, as also of each chapter. This is helpful in tracing any hadith. For this purpose we have also prepared a comprehensive index.
