We praise Allah that He enabled us to publish many books on religious topics in the Arabic, Urdu and English languages which acclaimed great popularity in Arab countries as well as in America, France and European countries besides Pakistan, India and many African countries. We try to present publications based on authentic research material in lines with the Qur'an and Sunnah, and that are free from every type of vague conception, weak authority and false ideas. Now, we have published Riyad-us-Saliheen with the same spirit and same tradition of good research work, professional editing and excellent printing standard. The book was compiled by Imam An-Nawawi who was the great scholar of Hadith and Fiqhof his time. We, hopefully, can proclaim that it is the best representation of Riyad-us-Saliheen ever produced in any language any where. May Allah accept our sincere efforts regarding the propagation of His religion throughout the world, and bestow on us His blessings to fulfill our resolutions in this regard -Amin!
