All praise is due to Almighty Allah. We praise Him and seek His assistance and forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evils of ourselves, from our sinful deeds, from the different forms of misguidance caused by Fitan (trials), and from the evil whispers of the devils.

I have previously published some useful treatises, Allah Willing, about the divine Qudsi Hadeeths. The first of them was called Al-Ithafaat As-Saneeyah bil Ahaadeeth Al-Qudsiyyah wrote by the prominent scholar ‘Abder Ra'oof Al-Munaawi, may Allaah have mercy upon him, then followed by Al-Ahadeeth Al-Qudusiyyah fil Kutub As-Sitah, then  Al-Ahadeeth Al-Qudusiyyah Al-Arba‘ineeyah by the prominent scholar Mulla ‘Ali Al-Qaari Al-Harawi, may Allaah have mercy upon him. Since a long time, I am eager to collect a good collection of the Qudsi Hadeeths. However, it was not just a matter of colleting as many who care about such matter used to do, where we find many of the Qudsi Hadeeth circulated today have nothing except collecting without caring about studying their Isnaads (chain of transmissions), verifying them and explaining the accepted from the rejected. This is actually a very important matter and this is what I have adopting in this beneficial project, Allah Willing, where I have collected a group of the Qudsi Hadeeths and divided them into two kinds:

Firstly, the authentic Qudsi Hadeeths.

Secondly, the weak Qudsi Hadeeths, according to what I have found.

I have decided that whenever I have a group of forty Hadeeth, I will publish them so that people may benefit from them, Allah Willing. Such are the first forty of the second kind i.e. the weak Qudsi Hadeeths. They will be followed by the second and third forty Hadeeths. As such I have made my best in verifying, editing and correcting their texts. In spite of all such things, it is after all a human deed and thus whoever finds defect or mistake, he may correct it.

I ask Allah to guide me and make me successful and correct my intention. Peace and blessing of Allah be upon Muhammad, his household and companions. (Makkah 1/4/1435 A.H.).
