About the Book: New edition of Sunan Abu Dawood in 5 volumes by Dar-us-Salam with commentary after each hadith. Unlike other prints, this edition has crisp and clear printing in deluxe 6×9″ bounding. Like the other translations of the six books of hadith, Dar-us-Salam Publications, has taken great care in correct translation, simple and clear modern English language, and high-quality publishing. Ahadith in the book are followed by comments to explain issues and to help readers derive lessons.
To aid readers further, Darussalam has added several features like the section on how to benefit from Sunan Abi Dawud, about the Arabic and technical terms used, information about the hadith compilations and a glossary of Islamic terms in the last volume. Each hadith is also followed by its status in regards to authenticity. The status is explained more in detail in the Arabic text. The chain is also complete in the Arabic text while it is removed from the English to reduce the length and not being of many benefits to the English readers.
