Al-Adab al-Mufrad (Hardback)


A Perfect Code of Manners and Morality

Translated with commentary by Adil Salahi

Compiled by Imam Bukhari

A complete, newly translated edition of al-Adab al-Mufrad, the most famous collection of Prophetic traditions on manners and morals, with a pioneering commentary by Adil Salahi.

Al-Adab al-Mufrad, an anthology of 1329 hadiths, is a treasured work in Muslim history by one of its most respected scholars, Imam Bukhari.

In preparing this selection of hadiths Imam Bukhari aimed to set out a model to follow for successful relations within the Muslim community as well as interaction between Muslims and non-Muslims based on the Prophetic example, and that of Muhammad’s closest companions. All of the hadiths are directly related to the standards of manners and morality Islam wants to prevail, and Muslims throughout the world have been guided by it since its preparation over a millennium ago.

What distinguishes the present work is that it includes a contemporary commentary, clearly emphasising the relevance of the Prophet’s teachings in our modern and complex societies. This pioneering addition marks it out as perhaps the first English work commenting on and explaining a full anthology of hadiths.

The translator and author of the commentaries, Adil Salahi, has a long history of research in the Seerah and Hadith, and he wrote extensively on both. This work puts together the best of his writings on the Prophet’s teachings in the area of morality and private and social manners.


Imam al-Bukhari, (born July 19, 810, Bukhara, Central Asia [now in Uzbekistan] died August 31, 870, Khartank, near Samarkand), is one of the greatest Muslim compilers and scholars of Hadith (the recorded sayings and acts of the Prophet Muhammad). His chief work is accepted by Sunni Muslims as second only to the Qur’an as both a source of religious law and a sacred work.
