Lesson 1 - Hadeeth 1 Of Nawawi 40 - Intention

Welcome to the first quiz in this series of 40 quizzes, each only 10 questions long. We plan to help you to learn the famous book of hadeeths by Imaam An-Nawawi, little by little. To be able to answer all the questions, it may help you to read the Explanation of Nawawi's 40 Hadeeths by Shyakh Al-Uthaymeen, available in English. If you are not memorising the hadeeths, then you might wish to skip the first two questions in each set. May Allaah help all those who intend to do good, grant them the ability to do righteous deeds and reward them abundantly.
