ABOUT THE BOOK:
Perhaps best concise commentary on Imam Nawawi's classical masterpiece Kitab al-Adhkar is this work by the erudite contemprory scholar Shaykh Muhyideen Dib Mistu.
The commentator tries not to make this work very broad and in depth but gives you brief:
* Analysis of the Qur'anic terms used,
* The more unusual wordings of the Ahadith,
* The takhrij (or the references) of the ahadith quoted,
* The grading of the Ahadith.
This work is ideal for students who dont want to perhaps read extensive analysis of the various Du'as and Adhkar that are or aren't suitable for any given situation. It is perhaps the most useful manual on supplications out there.
