A collection of forty ḥadīth qudṣī by Imām Yūsuf al-Nahānī translated by Muhammad Ali Asgar & Sayyid Muhammad Samdani.
Forty Divine Narrations is the translation of the renowned text of Imām al-Qāḍī Yūsuf al-Nabhāni (1849–1932), a Shāfiʿī jurist and Levantine gnostic. In it, he has compiled forty integral aḥādīth (Prophetic Narrations), on topics ranging from the core fundamental monotheistic belief of Islām to remedies of one’s affairs in accordance to the sharīʿah and wonderful reminders of the nature of an aspirational Muslim.
Each one of the narrations are termed as Ḥadīth al-Qudsī (Divine Narration) — a term used in the study of Prophetic narrations to describe those Divine statements aside from those contained in Revelations, which are manifested on the tongue of His Prophet.
This is the first work of an ongoing series of collections of "Forty Narrations" complied by Imām al-Nabhāni .
