Question By : Syed Hedayetullah Ahmed

 Respected Mufti Saheb,


I have notice recently in my local mosque that one of my brother reciting hadis from a book called Muntakhab E Hadis. This book contains Hadis from six Shahi Hadis book  and hadis from other books which are not considered as Shahi Sitha .

Is it correct to practice Hadish out side of Sahi sitha ?

The answer to your question is as follows:
The book Muntakhab Ahadith, is a selection of authentic Ahadith, relating to the Six Qualities of Dawat and Tabligh. This work was originally done in Arabic by Maulana Muhammad Yusuf Kandhlawi (R.A) during the last phase of his devoted life. He collected all the relevant principles, rules and precautions from their original sources. He has been so comprehensive and extensive that this book is not merely a compilation of these principles, rules and instructions, but perhaps an encyclopedia, in brief, with their relative importance. This masterpiece was later organized and translated into Urdu by his grandson, Maulana Muhammad Saad Kandhlawi.
Now, this Muntakhab Ahadith has been translated by a board of Islamic Scholars, is ready reference to guide the mankind towards the righteousness and enjoining the good and forbidden all evil deeds for the development and construction of an ideal society.
Apart from Sihah Sitta, there are various books of authentic Hadith (Prophetic sayings) as MuˇŻatta Imam Malik and MuˇŻatta Imam Muhammad, Musnad Imam Ahmed and Darmi, Tabrani, Daar Qutni, Baihiqi, Musannif Ibn-e-Abi Shaiba, Sharah MuˇŻaani al Asaar etc. And Muhaddisin has introduced several terms and types for Hadith e. g. Assah, Sahi, Hasan, Jaeef and Maujuu etc. And all types of Hadith from any book except Maujuu (fabricated) Hadith are practicable as according to the need of situations and circumstances. (And Allah Knows The Best)<
