The following is a collection of 40 Hadeeth Qudsi. But what is Hadeeth Qudsi and how do they differ from other Hadeeth? The following discussion is given in the introduction to the book titled “Forty Hadeeth Qudsi”
Hadeeth Qudsi are the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) as revealed to him by the Almighty Allah. Hadeeth Qudsi (or Sacred Hadeeth) are so named because, unlike the majority of Hadeeth which are Prophetic Hadeeth, their authority (Sanad) is traced back not to the Prophet but to the Almighty.
