The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said, “Whoever memorizes forty narrations for my nation in matters of its religion, Allah will raise him up as a scholar and I shall be an intercessor and a witness for him on the Day of Rising.”

Matan al-Arba’in is one of Imam Nawawi’s great books which has stood the test of time. For hundreds of years, the Forty Hadith of Imam Nawawi has lighted the path of believers “whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day.” The hadiths included in this collection are unique and full of meaning, each of them setting forth and/or reinforcing one of the fundamental points of our Deen. They provide guidance on strengthening your relationship with Allah and improving your interaction with fellow humans. These lessons may be applied to your worship, work, studies, marriage, and family and community life. Through properly learning and reflecting upon these hadiths, you will, insha’Allah, not only increase your understanding of the beauty of Islamic beliefs, values, and morals, but you will also be equipped with clear guidelines for both personal and social transformation.


  • Gain an understanding of the foundational concepts of Islam, Iman, and Ihsan.
  • Learn how to translate Prophetic guidance into practical action that can improve your worship, your transactions and dealings with others, and your spiritual state.
  • Study lessons from the Forty Hadith of Imam Nawawi under the guidance of a qualified teacher.


Ustadh Salman Younas credits two things with inspiring his journey as a student of knowledge: Shaykh Faraz Rabbani instilled in him a love of the sacred sciences with rare-seen balance and knowledge; and reading about the lofty states of the spiritually-realized made clear to him the reality of sacred knowledge and its purpose.

Born and raised in New York, Ustadh Salman Younas graduated from Stony Brook University with a degree in Political Science and Religious Studies. After studying the Islamic sciences online and with local scholars in New York, Ustadh Salman moved to Amman. There he studies Islamic law, legal methodology, belief, hadith methodology, logic, Arabic, and tafsir.

His teachers include: Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, Shaykh Salah Abu’l Hajj, Shaykh Ashraf Muneeb, Shaykh Ahmad Hasanat, Shaykh Hamza Karamali, Shaykh Ahmad Snobar, Shaykh Ali Hani, Shaykh Hamza Bakri, Ustadh Rajab Harun and others.

Ustadh Salman’s personal interests include research into the fields of law/legal methodology, hadith, theology, as well as political theory, government, media, and ethics. He is also an avid traveler and book collector. He currently resides in Amman with his wife.
