Description from the publisher:
Al-Adab al-Mufrad; an anthology of 1329 hadiths; is a treasured work in Muslim history by one of its most respected scholars; Imam Bukhari.
In preparing this selection of hadiths Imam Bukhari aimed to set out a model to follow for successful relations within the Muslim community as well as interaction between Muslims and non-Muslims based on the Prophetic example; and that of Muhammad's closest companions. All of the hadiths are directly related to the standards of manners and morality Islam wants to prevail; and Muslims throughout the world have been guided by it since its preparation over a millenia ago.
Famed for the reliability and strength of his work; Imam Bukhari exclusively used hadith that do not go below the grade of ''Good''; or ''Hasan''; and since they are focused on manners and moral values; they are upheld by scholars.
What distinguishes the present work is that it includes a contemporary commentary; clearly emphasising the relevance of the Prophet's teachings in our modern and complex societies. This pioneering addition marks it out as perhaps the first English work commenting on and explaining a full anthology of hadiths.
The translator and author of the commentaries; Adil Salahi; has a long history of research in the Seerah and Hadith; and he wrote extensively on both. This work puts together the best of his writings on the Prophet's teachings in the area of morality and private and social manners.
