Sahih Faza'il-e-A'maal[edit]

Sahih Faza'il-e-A'maal (Urdu: صحیح فضائل اعمال‎, Faz̤ā’il-i a‘māl, [Virtues of deeds]) is the common name of the re-composed and re-written merged versions, specially by Salafi scolars, of Tabligh Jamaat's Faza'il-e-A'maal, an Islamic religious text composed mainly of treatises by the Indian hadith scholar Muhammad Zakariya Kandhlawi on the merits of good deeds.[1] Many Salafi or Salafi-oriented scolars have took attempt to re-write the book because of its' immense popularity in South Asian sub-continent but in their views, lack of authenticity and clear reference of hadiths[4], fabricated stories and deep influences of Sufism of respective Deobandi ideology; leading of them are Abdullah Ali Bin Muhammad Al Maghrbi in Arabic and translated in English, Abdullah Nasir Rahmani,Muhammad Tayyab in Urdu, Abdul Hamid Faizi, Ahsanullah bin Sanaullah and Abdullah bin Khalid in Bengali and many more. Most of the writers have gathered all the Fazail series in the single book, and have selected and added only authentic (sahih) and good (Hasan) hadiths, classified the weak (Da'if) and fabricated (Maudhu) hadiths, and also rejected and removed the Sufism-releted spiritual tales and stories of the Tabligh version book.
