All Praise is for Allah, the Most High. Prayers and peace be upon Muhammad, his family, his Companions and all those who continue in their way until the Day of gathering.
Many a man has led his soul into destruction by that which he covets. Desiring the riches of this world, recognition and authority amongst the people – it was a trial for the nations of the past and many of us relentlessly chase after it today. We hope that this valuable book highlights the evil consequences of craving after wealth and status and how that can corrupt the Deen of the Muslim. We pray that this realisation causes our brothers and sisters to race one another in hastening towards forgiveness from Allaah, seeking the best provision in the Hereafter – ameen.
This is the English translation of the book Sharh Hadeeth Maa Dhi`baan Jaa`I’aan.. (Explanation of the Hadith: Two Hungry Wolves…”) by the esteemed scholar of Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah, Imaam al-Hafidh Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali (d.795h)
Many this fine work provide beneficial and though provoking information for the reader and may it be a treasure for us On the Day when neither wealth nor sons will benefit (one) except he who comes before Allah with a sound heart.
