Muntakhab Ahadith is a collection of hadith compiled in Arabic by the Islamic scholar Muhammad Yusuf Kandhalawi. The book is divided into seven sections and several sub-sections which correspond to the "Sifat-us-Sahaba" or "Characteristics of the Companions" that Jamaat Tabligh refers to and tries to implement. Over time, the seventh point has been stopped as being referred to on its own, hence the Sifat are referred to as "The Six Qualities".
The book in its present form was organized by Maulana Saad Kandhlawi, the original compiler's grandson, who also translated the book into the Urdu language.
The book is very popular and is heavily used by Tablighi Jamaat.
The book contains Quranic Ayaahs and Hadeeths from various authentic Hadeeth books of the past, in easy understandable translation to Urdu. Ahadeeth have been selected from books like Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Abu Dawood, Tirmizi, Muwatta Imam Malik, Al Sunan Al Sughra, Sunan Ibn Majah etc.
Controversy: Many Ulemas dispute authenticity of this book, specially Mol Yakub from Saharnpur he said in letter that he was with Mol Yusuf for 15 years but never ever he gave any hint of this book.
