Authentic Islamic books to read and practice on


1. Can you please list a few authentic Hadeeth Shareef books?

2. Other than Bahishti Zewar and Hayatul Muslimeen, can you name a few authentic books for reading? I have a lot of free time, and I want to fill my head with a little Islamic knowledge.


1. What level of knowledge do you have and have you studied before? If you have not studied under the supervision of any qualified ustaad then study the Fazaa'il-e-A`maal, Fazaa'il-e-Sadaqaat, Fazaa'il-e-Durood, Bahisti Zewar and Seeratul Mustafa.

2. Study the above mentioned books. They should not be merely read. Rather, understand the contents, digest them and let it be a daily practice.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
