FOREWORD
In
the
Ntme
of
Allah,
the
Most
Gracious,
the
Dispenser
of
Grace
The authentic stock of the Traditions is the record of theApostolic life of the Prophet Muhammad
@$
which serves as asubstitute for his presence. The Believers who did not have thegood fortune to see him in the life of this world can, to
a
largeextent, know him
by
means of it, and comply with
his
orders, andfollow his 'good example' almost with the same degree ofconfidence as those who were blessed enough to know
him
withfaith
in
his lifetime.The main object of the writing of 'Ma'ariful Hudith', simply isto enable
the
brothers who cannot read the original collections ofthe Traditions to obtain the knowled e of the teachings
and
the'good example' of the sacred Prophet
&$
and gain an access to hisaugust presence which is now possible only through the study
of
the books dealing with the reports of his sayings
and
doings.It is hoped
that
the faithful bondsmen who will read the presentseries after awakening the sentiments of love and reverence
for
theProphet
in
their hearts
and
withearnest attention will,
Insha
Allah, gain these objectives
and
it will be possibIe for them topartake of the effulgence and blessings of the Traditions andexperience a peculair feeling
of
nearness and association with himin
the
innermost recesses of their existence.Two volumes of the English translation of
Ma'ariful
Hadith
have appeared already.
In
the first volume are included theTraditions relating to Faith, the Hereafter, and Softheartedness,while
in
the second volume the
plan
was to present the Traditionsbelonging
to
the Books
of
Cleanliness and
the
Four fundamentalDuties i.e. Salah or
Namaz
(Regular Worship), Zukuh (Poor-due),Saum (Fasting),
and
Hajj (the Pilgrimage to Makkah),
but
as it wasfelt that it would grow too large, it was decided to bring it to aclose with Kitabus Sulah (TheBook
of
Regular Worship).
The
reminder, i.e., Kitabuz Zakah (the Book of the Poor-due), Kitabus
.
'
Saum
(the Book of Fasting), and Kitabul Hajj (the Book of thePilgrimage)
is
now
being
published in this, the third volume.The Prophets are raised up,
chiefly,
to unite the bondsmen withtheir Lord and Creater and make
them
His
devoted worshippers.

Meaning and
Message
of
the
Traditions
Parl
IV
I
created
the
jinn
and
humankind
only
that
they
rnight
worship
me.
(LI:56)
Hence. after giving the call of faith
in
God and Divine Unity, theApostles invited mankind to worship Him, before everything else.Among the human deeds it is the peculiarity of worship alone that,through it, the bondsman expresses his humbleness before God andhis life gets dyed in the hue of servility and self-surrender.Moreover, the propinquity of the Lord is attained through worshipand contil~uous dvancement takes place in it. Thus, in all theCanonic Laws the greatest stress, after Faith, has been laid onworship, and the holy Prophet, too,
has
declared Scilah, Zakuh,Saunl and Hajj
to
be the principal tenets of Islam, next only to
the
Oneness
of
God and Apostleship. The four fundamental duties ofworship. in fact. constitute the substance
of
Faith and the felicity orotherwise of humanity
is
dependent, largely, on them.Out of these, the Traditions appertaining to the teachings,instructions and regular practice of the holy Prophet
@
with
regardto Suluh have been discussed
in
the2ndvolume, and those relatingto the other three duties i.e. Zukah
Saztm
and
Hcgj
are
now
beingtaken
up
in
the present volume.As in the two
earlier
volumes, inost of the Traditions included
in
the present one, too. have been taken from Mishkuufzd
Mc~su~~&
r Jarnil-ul-Fuwayid and reliance has been placed on
it
in the matter of references.
Further,
in confirmity with the patternfollowed in Mishkuut no other reference is given if Sahih Bukhari
and
Sahih
MzisEin~
or any of them are mentioned as the source of aTradition for it would have been unnecessary to quote any otherauthority after stating that it was found in either of the twocompilations.
A
few reports have, also, been adopted from Kanzzll
'Ummul
and some have been reproduced directly from the books of Sihah,such as,
Sahih
Bzrkhari,
Sahih
Muslim,
Jamit-i-Tirrnizi andSunan-i-Abi
Da~~ood.
hese are the narratives that do not occur inthe same words
in
Mifhkaat
or Jarni-ul-Fuwayid.May the Almighty bestow His acceptance upon this volume aswell and
make
it beneficial to His bondsmen, and a source ofForgiveness both of the writer and the translator!
