Fayd al-Qadir Sharh al-Jami` al-Saghir (Arabic: فيض القدير شرح الجامع الصغير, romanizedThe Abundance of the Almighty's Inspiration /in/ the Explanation of Al-Jāmi' al-Saghir) is a multi-volume commentary on Imam Al-Suyuti's Hadith collection titled Al-Jami' al-Saghir.[1][2] Fayd al-Qadir is an exhaustive commentary by Imam Al-Munawi. Considered his most popular work, it is a very popular book amongst Sunnis.[3][4]


The author extracts linguistic, aqidah, and fiqh benefits from the ahadith and connecting the narrations to other verses, ahadith, and statements of the scholars, Imam al-Munawi's explanation is distinctive in that it organises the ahadith in alphabetical order. This collection, which is frequently referenced, is drawn from well-known hadith literature.[5] The author reconciles the seemingly different hadiths and brings them together. He also grades the hadiths by scanning the narrators through his knowledge in Ilm al-rijal and criticizes it by pointing out weak or fabricated narrations.[6]
