Reviewers' Comments (See what the Hadith Scholars are saying)

Downpour of Blessings fills a lacuna in English hadith literature. It is a must-read for Muslims interested in the rich tradition of hadith commentary. Khalid Baig is to be commended for distilling technical concepts related to hadith in a manner that is both accessible and relatable to all levels of readership.

I am very pleased to see that our respected brother Khalid Baig prepared this beautiful collection. He has rendered a great service to modern Muslims, young and old. Every hadith is presented with its text and an excellent translation. Following that is a short, clear, and thoughtful explanation. Hadiths are presented in their historical context, with useful lessons drawn for our lives. The author critically examines the doubts and objections of the Orientalists, Islamophobes, as well as deniers of Hadith. The book follows, in general, the middle and moderate positions of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa 'l-Jama?ah.

The book is enjoyable and easy to read and learn, but it is also very profound, educational, and instructive. It will be a welcome addition to our growing Islamic literature in English and hopefully be used by our Islamic schools as well as mosques in weekly or daily Hadith study circles.

In the relatively limited landscape of English hadith collections, largely consisting of highly technical translations that are relatively inaccessible to the average reader, the highly relevant, concise, and yet comprehensive collection of hadith in Khalid Baig's Downpour of Blessings is a much needed addition to the corpus. Like the Ma?arif ?adith that this collection is based upon, this compendious hadith selection, translation, and commentary warrants a place on every bookshelf in the Muslim, English-speaking world.

Shaykh Bilal Ali Ansari, Department of Hadith, Darul Qasim, Chicago, Illinois

The selection is mainly guided by the Ma?arif al-?adith of Maulana Manzoor Nomani. As a thorough course of Hadith study for laymen, this has been the book of choice in Urdu ever since it was first published in 1953.

Hadith texts have been taken directly from the sourcebooks and full references in Arabic have been provided. There is a new organization, translation, and commentary. A chapter on al-?ibb al-Nabawi has also been added. In addition to a subject index in English, it also features an index in Arabic, which will facilitate searching for hadith texts.
