1.4 Da`eef Ahadeeth


Bismillaah

The following ahaadeeth have been declared da`eef (weak) by the scholars, mostly because of their isnaad (chain) as narrated and collected in this work of Imaam An-Nawawi.

However, the meanings of the ahaadeeth are true and they have their ‘asl (basis) in Qur’aan and/or Sunnah. Some ahaadeeth have portions of its matan (text) in other books of ahaadeeth.
