Eternal Guardian of the heavens and the earths, Disposer of all created beings, Despatcher of Messengers may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon them all who were sent to those they have been entrusted to guide and to reveal the religious laws to, with positive signs and clear-cut proofs. I praise Him for His favours and ask Him to increase His grace and generosity.
I bear witness that there is no god but Allah alone, He having no associate, the One, the Subduer, the Generous, the Pardoner, and I bear witness that our master Muhammed is His servant and His messenger, His dear one and His beloved, the best of created beings, who was honoured with the precious Quran, the enduring miracle through the passing of the years, and with the sunnahs that enlighten spiritual guides; our master Muhammed, singled out for pithiness of speech and tolerance in religion may the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him, upon the rest of the prophets and messengers, and upon all their families and upon the rest of godly persons.
In another version it reads: In the version of Abu Al-Darda it reads: In the version of Ibn Masud it reads: Enter by whichever of the doors of Paradise you wish ". In the version of Ibn Omar it reads: Scholars of hadith are agreed that it is a weak hadith despite its many lines of transmission.
The religious scholars, may Allah be pleased with them, have composed innumerable works in this field. I have asked Allah Almightly for guidance in bringing together forty hadith in emulation af those eminant religious leaders and guardians of Islam. Religious scholars are agreed it is permissible to put into practice a weak hadith if virtuous deeds are concerned; despite this, I do not rely on this hadith but on his having said the [ following ] sound hadith: Furthermore, there were some religious scholars who brought together forty hadiths on the basic rules of religion, on subsidiary matters, or on jihad, while others did so on asceticism, on rules of conduct or on sermons.
All these are godly aims-may Allah be pleased with those who pursued them. I, however, considered it best to bring together forty hadith more important than all of these, being forty hadith which would incolporate all of these, each hadith being one of the great precepts of religion, described by religious scholars as being "the axis of Islam " or "the half of Islam" or "the third of it ", or the like, and to make it a rule that these forty hadith be [classified as] sound and that the majority of them be in the sahihs of Al-Bukhari and Muslim.
I give them without the chains of authorities so as to make it easier to memorise them and to make them of wider benefit if Allah Almighty wills, and I append to them a section explaining abstruse expressions.
Note here every person wishing to attain the Hereafter should know these hadith because of the important matters they contain and the directions they give in respect of all forms of obedience, this being obvious to anyone who has reflected upon it.

On Allah do I rely and depend and to Him do I entrust myself; to Him be praise and grace, and with Him is success and immunity [to errors]. Hadith 1 On the authority of Omar bin Al-Khattab, who said: I heared the messenger of Allah salla Allah u alihi wa sallam say: Thus he whose migration was for Allah and His messenger, his migration was for Allah and His messenger, and he whose migration was to achieve some worldly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated.
One day while we were sitting with the messenger of Allah there appeared before us a man whose clothes were exceedingly white and whose hair was exceedingly black; no signs of journeying were to be seen on him and none of us knew him.
He walked up and sat down by the prophet.
Resting his knees against his and placing the palms of his hands on his thighs, he said: The messenger of Allah said: I heared the messenger of Allah say: Thus he who avoids doubtful matters clears himself in regard to his religion and his honor, but he who falls into doubtful matters falls into that which is unlawful, like the shepherd who pastures around a sanctuary, all but grazing therein.
Truly in the body there is a morsel of flesh which, if it be whole, all the body is whole and which, if it be diseased, all of it is diseased. Truly it is the heart.
Hadith 9 On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: It was only their excessive questioning and their disagreeing with their prophets that destroyed those who were before you. Allah has commanded the faithful to do that which he commanded the messengers, and the Almighty has said: Eat of the good things and do right".
And Allah the Almighty has said: Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you" Then he mentioned [the case of] a man who, having journeyed far, is dishevelled and dusty and who spreads out his hands to the sky [saying]: I memorized from the messenger of Allah his saying: On the authority of Abu Hurairah, who said: The man repeated [his request] several times, and he said: Thus, if you kill, kill well; and if you slaughter, slaughter well.An Nawawi's Forty Hadith Arabic - English with Translation & Transliteration.
