 An Arba’in is a type of Hadith collection in which forty Hadiths are compiled. According to Mulla Katib Chilapi, ‘Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak (d. 181 A.H.) wrote the first compilation of this type, after whom many collections of this type came into existence, such as those compiled by:

  1. Muqammad ibn Aslam al-Tusi
  2. Hafiz al-Daraqutni
  3. Hafiz ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalani

 This old tradition of compiling arba’in is not conventional- rather, the basis for this is a Hadith that encourages the compilation of forty Hadiths, or conveying them to the people. The Prophet (saw) said:  Whoever preserves for my nation forty Hadiths regarding their religion, Allah the Almighty and Exalted shall raise him on the Day of Judgement amongst the group of jurists and scholars. (al-Jawhari)
